Dark crabs are located in the Resource Area and are most easily accessed by using the Edgeville lever. Dark crab fishing spots never move. Fishing dark crabs is very low intensity, but fishers must remain aware of PKers. The elite Wilderness diary greatly improves the catch rate. The listed profit and catch rate per hour is with the diary. Once a full inventory has been caught, the dark crabs should be noted with Piles.

Take 3 or 4 expensive defensive equipment items. Dinh's Bulwark is a good choice. Black dragonhide armour is suitable for the remaining slots.

To escape PKers run out the fence and north to the axe hut. Use your lockpick to go inside. The PKer also needs a lockpick to get inside. If the Pker follows inside, switch to your fun weapon, attack a Magic axe, and then xlog.
