The Champion of Scabaras is fought during the Beneath Cursed Sands quest.

The Champion of Scabaras will attack with magical shadow attacks and melee up close. After a certain amount of basic attacks, the Champion will use one of three special attacks in order:

  • Shadow Burst - The Champion will cast a shadow beneath themselves, then proceed to send out a burst of shadow magic. This reaches for 4 tiles, and can hit over 40 damage multiple times (less if further away from the champion). It is advised to kite the Champion throughout the fight to avoid this attack, as he cannot be frozen due to his magic immunity.
  • Shadow Portal - The Champion will shout We are born in the shadows! and summon a shadow portal within the arena. The portal has 20 hitpoints and will explode, dealing 35+ damage, so it is recommended to quickly destroy it.
  • Shadow Flames - The Champion will shout The children of Scabaras are eternal!, and a poisonous scarab swarm will appear. The swarm has 5 hitpoints and leaves dark fire in its path, which will hurt when stood upon. It is advised to kill the swarm as fast as possible as the fire will linger and hinder movement if left unattended.

It is advised to pray against magic throughout the fight, and kite the Champion with ranged attacks to avoid its shadow burst. If players die during the fight, their gravestone will be found by the tomb's entrance on the surface.
