Dark totem base detail.png

The dark totem base is an item obtained from monsters found within the Catacombs of Kourend (excluding ghosts). All Superior slayer monsters encountered in the Catacombs are guaranteed to drop a dark totem piece.

This item can be combined with the dark totem middle and the dark totem top to create the dark totem, which is used to reach Skotizo, a demon that lurks beneath the Catacombs. This item is lost upon death.
