Sotetseg is a dark beast that has been corrupted through Haemalchemy. It is the fourth encounter in the Theatre of Blood.
Sotetseg stands immobile in the northern section of a 14 × 15 tiled arena. It launches small red projectiles which can be blocked with Protect from Magic. Upon striking a player, these projectiles will ricochet towards other players as small grey projectiles, which can be blocked with Protect from Missiles. Failing to protect against Sotetseg's attacks will block the player's prayer for 5 seconds.
Sotetseg will also occasionally fire a large red projectile at a single player. All players must stand within a 3 × 3 area of the targeted player to disperse the damage; failing to do so will result in targeted player taking up to 115 damage. Correct prayer protection must also be applied.
At 66.6% and 33.3% hitpoints, Sotetseg will choose a single player and transport them into the shadow realm. The player must follow the red path on the tiled ground and click on the portal to return to the arena. The transported player will also constantly take hits of 3 damage while in the realm. The players in the arena must also follow the same path, however, they will only be able to see the current location of the transported player, denoted by a red glow on the tiled ground. Concurrently, players in the arena will also be chased by a red vortex that will deal damage to the whole party if intercepted.
Drop rates estimated based on 6,800 kills from the Old School RuneScape Wiki drop log project, unless otherwise cited.
