The Dagannoth mother is fought at the end of the quest Horror from the Deep. She cycles through different colours every 18 seconds to explicitly show her weaknesses.

While fighting the Dagannoth Mother, it is possible to hide or safespot behind the nearby stalagmites. Protect from Missiles is advised as her Ranged attack is highly accurate. She can hit up to 9s with Melee, and can hit double 12s with Ranged. Pures are advised to bring a ring of recoil and turn off auto-retaliate if not using melee. It should be noted that if she is killed by any source of recoil, the player will have to leave the area and repeat the fight (this may be a glitch). As a result, players should unequip their rings of recoil when she has low health.

Once she is defeated, you will obtain a rusty casket.

She can be fought in the Nightmare Zone after the quest is complete. Runes are provided in the arena.
