The listed profit rate assumes 22 kills per hour, but up to 28 is possible with maxed stats and gear. Your expected profit will vary depending on your kills per hour.

For overall boss strategy, please see the strategy page for Vorkath.

As special attack energy is required for this setup, please note that it is required to have at least a Restoration pool or similar form of special attack restoration - the Clan Wars FFA portal does not regenerate special attack energy. If you lack a pool in your own POH, it is necessary to use someone else's to be able to maintain a consistent kill rate, though using someone else's POH will result in much longer delays between trips and therefore much less profit.

Before the fight starts, equip your melee gear with a Bandos godsword equipped and use the special attack on Vorkath with Piety and Protect from Magic active. If aiming for multiple trips per kill, using one spec initially may be ideal to save special attack energy; otherwise, use two. If, at the start of a new trip, both specs miss or hit very low, it may be faster to teleport out and restart with full special attack energy.

After landing the special attacks, equip your range gear and pray Protect from Magic and Rigour. Protecting from Magic is necessary to prevent dragonfire damage from Vorkath; unfortunately, with the blowpipe strategy, range damage must be tanked and will be a primary source of damage intake per trip.

You should expect 1-3 kills per trip, limited by food, although up to 4-5 is possible. It is advisable to reserve special attack energy for successive kills, as long as supplies are high, as more kills per trip generally translate to more kills per hour and profit.

The listed profit rate assumes 30 kills per hour, but up to 34 is possible with maxed stats and gear. Your expected profit will vary depending on your kills per hour.

For overall boss strategy, please see the strategy page for Vorkath.

Due to the high accuracy of a Dragon hunter crossbow in combination with a Salve amulet and Void range, it is unnecessary and can even be an overall damage loss to use defence-lowering special attacks on Vorkath. Therefore, the only preparation required when beginning fights with the Dragon hunter crossbow is to ensure that Ruby dragon bolts(e) are equipped. However, an optional strategy worth noting to keep Hitpoints high and fully utilize resources is to use the special attack of a Toxic blowpipe during Vorkath's poison phases.

You will want to Protect from Range, as the effects of the Super antifire potion and Antidragon shield/Dragonfire ward will fully prevent dragonfire damage. You will still take some damage from magic and range, but it should be minimal. When Vorkath reaches 265 Hitpoints (35%), you should switch to Diamond dragon bolts(e).

Due to the slow attack speed of the Dragon hunter crossbow, it is imperative that you stop attacking Vorkath immediately when he uses the special freeze attack on you, as the slow attack speed recovery can delay your Crumble Undead cast too much to prevent damage from the undead spawn.

Lastly, after the end of each kill, you should look to restore your health and prayer and ensure that you re-equip your Ruby dragon bolts(e).

You should expect a minimum of 4-6 kills per trip with 90+ combat stats, limited by inventory space, with more being possible with good luck. Because of the high number of kills per trip, leaving behind unnoted dragonhides and restarting a trip when full on bones is generally the accepted strategy to maximize profit. If looking to extend kills per trips beyond 6, consider bringing runes for High Level Alchemy.

The listed profit rate assumes 28 kills per hour, but up to 34 is possible with maxed stats and gear. Your expected profit will vary depending on your kills per hour.

For overall boss strategy, please see the strategy page for Vorkath.

An alternative gear setup can be used if the kills are on-task, replacing the Helm of neitiznot with a Slayer helm and the Salve amulet (ei) with an Amulet of torture. Kills on-task are a small DPS increase over kills off-task.

Before the fight starts, equip the Bandos godsword and use one special attack on Vorkath with Piety and Protect from Magic active. Regardless of whether the special attacks hits or misses, proceed to equip your Dragon hunter lance and defender and proceed with the fight as normal.

Protecting from Magic is necessary to prevent dragonfire damage from Vorkath; however, due to the high-defence melee gear worn in this setup, damage taken from range attacks should be minimized.

In the full melee setup, it is possible that your magic attack bonus may be below -65, which means your Crumble Undead cast will splash on the undead spawn. To prevent this, equip your Bandos godsword when Vorkath freezes you, then cast Crumble Undead. As long as your magic attack bonus is above -65, you will always one-shot the undead spawn with the spell.

After the kill, you should restore your health and prayer, re-equip your Bandos godsword and prepare to spec if energy is available.

You should expect a minimum of 4-6 kills per trip with 90+ combat stats, limited by inventory space, with more being possible with good luck. Because of the high number of kills per trip, leaving behind unnoted dragonhides and restarting a trip when full on bones is generally the accepted strategy to maximize profit. If looking to extend kills per trips beyond 6, consider bringing runes for High Level Alchemy.
