General Information

Unless you know what you are doing, you should not attempt to go to the Corporeal Beast on your own! This guide is set up to help people who are going as part of a team!

His Attack Styles

He will attack using both Magic and Melee styled attacks. His Magic attack is a lot more common than his melee attack which is why you need high magic defence. You will also want to use Protect from Magic/Deflect Magic prayers. If you are inflicting a lot of damage to the Corporeal Beast then you may wish to use Soul Split but that is not recommended as he can hit as high as 3,000 (Reduced to 1,500 with the correct prayer).

Dark Core

The Dark Core is spawned when the Corporeal Beast hits 50% HP. It will jump near you and will drain your HP at a considerable rate. You can avoid this by moving two steps away from it - it will then target another player.

Other Information

Loot + Spirit Sigils

As the Corporeal Beast is quite strong and is reasonably hard to kill, the loot you can get from killing it is very expensive! It is known to drop smaller items such as Onyx Bolts which are worth just short of 2m, and a number of other decent items. But it can also drop spirit sigils which can be attached to Spirit Shields, these range from 7M to 180M, which are listed below. The Corporeal Beast also has a chance of dropping the Corporeal Bone which unlocks the Corporeal Puppy pet. Chances of obtaining it increases as your tracked number of Corporeal Beast kills increases.

Item Name Class
Spectral Sigil All
Arcane Sigil Magic
Elysian Sigil Range
Divine Sigil Melee

Creating Spirit Shields requires you to have 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. You will need to use the sigil and a blessed spirit shield on an anvil.

After successfully creating a spirit shield, a message will display:
