Dark beasts can be killed with Melee, Magic or Ranged. Melee is the most effective against them and should be used in conjunction with high prayer bonus armour, such as Proselyte armour, for Protect from Melee. To maximise profit, players should bring a herb sack and a gem bag so that they can loot all herbs and gems they receive.
Melee[edit | edit source]
Dark beasts will be aggressive towards you given that you're not already engaged in combat, and use their magical attacks if they are out of melee range. This is largely prevented by swiftly attacking a new beast close to you after one has been killed. Proselyte or Initiate armour is recommended to reduce the prayer point waste.
It is important to note that if you are not using a cannon mage attacks will not appear and the superior versions magic attacks cannot kill you. You are completely safe to pray melee and afk the whole task.
