The Catacombs of Kourend is a massive dungeon located beneath Great Kourend. Created by Skotizo by using an artefact stolen from the Karamjan Temple during the God Wars, it contains many monsters that are commonly assigned to players as Slayer assignments. Note that the dwarf multicannon cannot be used here.

As this particular dungeon is well known for being a Multicombat area, it's generally recommended to use prayer or high-healing methods for aggressive high-level monsters stacked against you.

A special effect of the Catacombs is that players who bury bones of any type within it will have a small amount of their prayer points restored. This also applies if the bone is crushed via the Bonecrusher.

Entrance[edit | edit source]

The main entrance is found by investigating the statue of King Rada I in the courtyard of Kourend Castle. The fastest way to the main entrance is through Xeric's talisman, with the "Xeric's Heart" function, which teleports you outside the statue of King Rada I, which requires completion of the Architectural Alliance miniquest; or the Kourend Castle Teleport spell, which requires finding and reading the book Transportation incantations from the Arceuus Library, or a portal in the portal chamber or portal nexus of a player-owned house attuned to Kourend Castle.

There are four other entrances scattered around the cities of Great Kourend; however, these additional entrances will only appear once the player has used the respective rope from inside the catacombs. The climbing ropes are located in the following areas:

The four other entrances, unlocked by climbing up the ropes from within the Catacombs.

The Catacombs[edit | edit source]

Many of the normal monsters in the catacombs are slightly stronger compared to those found elsewhere on Gielinor. In addition, the majority of the catacombs are multi-combat. The only area where single-way combat appears is in the brutal dragon area.

The dark altar in the main entrance of the catacombs can be used to teleport to the four sections of the Catacombs; doing so requires using an ancient shard, which is obtained from the monsters in the catacombs.

There are also a few Agility shortcuts around the dungeon, the highest of them requiring 34 Agility to use. These shortcuts are found in the following areas:

A player uses the dark totem on the Dark Altar in the centre of the Catacombs.
  • Stepping stones: Two-way shortcut between the steel dragon and brutal red dragon area. Each stepping stone must be clicked on to jump to it.
    • Note: Steel/Brutal red dragons can attack you while using the shortcut, and can damage you.
  • Crevices:

Monsters[edit | edit source]

Skotizo[edit | edit source]

Beneath the Catacombs lurks Skotizo, a demi-boss whose lair requires the use of a dark totem to enter. Components for the dark totem are obtained by killing the monsters (excluding ghosts) throughout the catacombs. The totem is used on the dark altar to access the lair.
