    The listed profit rate assumes 30 kills per hour, but up to 33 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 utilise 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 anti-dragon shield/dragonfire ward will fully prevent dragonfire damage. You will still take some damage from magic, 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 maximise profit. If looking to extend kills per trips beyond 6, consider bringing runes for High Level Alchemy.
