TzTok-Jad, commonly called Jad for short, is one of the strongest monsters in Old School RuneScape. With a combat level of 702, TzTok-Jad has a max hit of 97 and can easily kill most players in one hit with any of its three attacks: a Melee attack with its bite, a blast of Magic in the form of a fireball, and a boulder falling from the ceiling as a Ranged attack. To add to the challenge, players must fight TzTok-Jad solo without being able to restock on supplies from the previous waves.
Players can pay 100 slayer reward points to have Duradel, Nieve, or Chaeldar assign TzHaar as a slayer assignment. When players have TzHaar as a slayer assignment, they will be prompted with an option to be assigned 1 TzTok-Jad. Players who succeed in defeating it will receive 25,250 Slayer experience.
Reaching TzTok-Jad[edit | edit source]
TzTok-Jad is the boss monster of the TzHaar Fight Cave minigame, so he is the last monster you will need to defeat, and he is encountered on Wave 63. This is the only place where Jad can be found.
Previously, logging out during the fight caused the minigame to end and forced players to restart. Now, you simply press the logout button once, and a notification will tell you the minigame will be paused at the end of the current wave. You can then logout and when you return, a new wave will begin. A player should not depend on this logging out break, however, because if they are at the later stages fighting multiple deadly high levels (such as the Ket-Zek), the player generally spawns next to or on top of the monsters. The chatbox that opens upon logging back in stalls the monsters from spawning until clicking to continue (or by pressing spacebar).
Fighting TzTok-Jad[edit | edit source]
Once TzTok-Jad is reached, fighting and defeating him requires decent skill and reflexes. It is possible to engage TzTok-Jad using Melee, but it is more difficult to switch between the Protect from Melee, Protect from Missiles, and Protect from Magic prayers. TzTok-Jad only uses Ranged and Magic attacks at a distance, however. As he is resistant to Magic, using Ranged to attack him is recommended.
TzTok-Jad has a very long attack range, much like the Tok-Xil encountered earlier on in the Fight Cave. A very useful tip is to try to find out where the orange Ket-Zek spawned in the previous wave. As with all other waves where two enemies of the same type are encountered, the new monster will appear where the off-coloured monster spawned. This will allow you to prepare accordingly to prevent Jad from launching a surprise attack.
TzTok-Jad will use attacks at random. It is critical that players know the warning signs for these attacks and switch between the protection prayers accordingly before the attack launches:
- Melee: TzTok-Jad thrusts forward with a sharp bite. He only does this if the player is within melee distance, and unlike the Magic and Ranged attacks, the Melee attack is instant.
- Magic: TzTok-Jad rears up on his hind legs and dangles his forward legs for a few seconds before launching a fireball from his mouth at the player.
- Ranged: TzTok-Jad rears up on his hind legs, then slams down his front legs onto the ground causing a boulder to fall on the player (in which it is not possible to evade this boulder by running).
All of TzTok-Jad's attacks can deal up to 97 damage. While this means Vengeance can deal a lot of damage, one extremely high-damaging hit can mean the fight is over, especially if the Yt-HurKots are attacking you.
Monsters move east or west before moving north or south to reach you. This is very useful when trying to trap TzTok-Jad when it spawns.
Once TzTok-Jad is reduced to half health, he will summon four Yt-HurKots to come and heal him repeatedly — the player must deal with them whilst warding off TzTok-Jad's attacks. If they manage to heal him to full health, then they should not be killed as they will respawn once he is reduced to half health again. If they are distracted before healing him to full health, they will not respawn when killed.
- Note: If you take the attention of the Yt-HurKots and they are hitting you, they WILL still heal Jad if they are close enough to him.
Drops[edit | edit source]
- Tzrek-jad drop rate is 1/100 if TzTok-Jad is killed while on a TzHaar slayer task.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
Once players manage to defeat TzTok-Jad, they will be rewarded with the untradeable fire cape along with 8,032 Tokkul (16,064 Tokkul with completion of the Elite Karamja Diary). The fire cape, infernal cape and their cosmetically enhanced variants, the fire max cape and infernal max cape respectively, are the only capes to have an animation.
