The listed profit rate assumes 20 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.


The average kill is worth 150,704, however if not counting in any uniques the kill would only be worth 64,630. Due to this, the profit from Hydra is highly dependent on its uniques: Hydra leather, Hydra's claw, and the three hydra parts required to make the Brimstone ring - the Hydra's eye, fang and heart. The Hydra's claw is the most expensive unique, worth around 68,168,487 which is over half of the gross profit per hour, but due to its 1/1000 rarity makes the profit from killing the Alchemical Hydra very inconsistent.

High alchemy runes should be brought to extend trips.
