Dark totem detail.png

The dark totem is an item that can be created by combining the dark totem base, dark totem middle, and dark totem top. It is used on the altar in the centre of the Catacombs of Kourend to access the lower level of the catacombs to fight Skotizo. The totem is consumed when using it on the altar regardless of the outcome of the fight.

All three components can be found by killing monsters (excluding ghosts) in the Catacombs of Kourend. Superior slayer monsters have a 100% chance of dropping a totem piece; all others have a chance equal to , where is the monster's Hitpoints. A fully-assembled dark totem can also be rarely obtained from Skotizo. Assembling the dark totem results in a chatbox message stating You bring the totem pieces together with a click. It looks kind of like an arcane key and pulses with dark power in your hand.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, the High Level Alchemy value of a dark totem was 6. This was changed sometime in late 2016 to its current value of 270.
  • The first week after the release of the Dark totem, the totem pieces were a more common drop than currently, so that players could stock up on Dark totems in anticipation of Skotizo's release.[1]
