OSRS Alternative Dagannoth Kings Solo Guide : Requirements, Gear Setup & More

About Dagannoth Kings:

Dagannoth kings are a group of 3 high combat level monsters, laying in Waterbirth island’s dungeon. They are relatively easy to kill especially if you’re on OSRS gold Dagannoth slayer’s task which is quite common if you’re using Nieve/Steve or Duradel. This money making method is excellent choice for low-to-mid-range players as it don’t require such hardcore quests like Dragon Slayer 2 or Regicide. Also, you won’t need any high level skills like Slayer or Agility, but this doesn’t mean they have low profit making potential.

These kings, also known as DKS, are notable for dropping best in-game rings for different attack styles which are listed below with the current (2019 June) prices:

Berserker ring – 3.5M

Archers ring 5.3M

Seers ring – 450k

Warrior ring – 76K.

Official rate for dropping these rings is 1/128 but this is divided among other unique drops, so you can expect your first ring in first 30-50 kills, but this also depends on your RNG, I got my first berserker ring in 3 kills but it is very possible to even get few rings in single trip like this lucky duo.

DKS have more unique drops which won’t be included in this guide as they have low price and our main goal is a highest possible profit. This is what actually makes this guide alternative, because most DKS solo guides are focused on killing all 3 kings. But in this guide, we will ignore Prime (magic) king and focus on Rex (melee) and Supreme (ranged) kings as they drop the highest value rings.

Requirements and recommendations:

There are no strict requirements for DKS and it’s even possible to do it without any quests completed. Although, I highly recommend having The Fremennik Trials completed, as this will help you with a pet rock which could be used to enter the dungeon without a door partner. But if you don’t feel like doing the quest, you can find DKS clan chat via your minigame list and look for a door partner there. But please note, this might take a while to find one and if you die, you don’t want to spend too much time looking for a door partner. If you have Elite Fremennik diaries completed, DKS will also drop their bones noted which are 9K each. This will increase your gains significantly, for example if you have 150 dagannoths as your slayer task you will receive over 1.3M runescape gold just out of bones. Bringing Rune thrownaxe is also required. Any different type of thrownaxe won’t work! You will also need antidote as you will get poisoned in DKS room. Sanfew’s potions offers antidote’s effect along with restored prayer points but it costs more.

High combat stats are highly recommended as this will make your kills faster and your trip longer. Although, 70 Defence is required to wear Guthan’s set. Having 55 Slayer will allow you cast slayer darts, if you can’t afford Trident Of The Swamp or don’t have gods spells unlocked. And don’t worry about having negative magic attack bonus. Dagannoth Rex has 0 magic defence therefore you will always pierce him through.

Recommended combat stats:

80+ Attack

80+ Strength

75+ Magic

70+ Defence

70+ Prayer

Gear setup:

Having full Guthan’s is a must for this strategy. Below you will find 3 different gear setups affordable for different players, but if you don’t have access to some of the items, you can swap them for any high prayer bonus giving items. Also note, if you are going to use god spells don’t forget to wear matching cape for damage boost. For example, if you will be casting Guthix Claws take Guthix cape.

  1. First setup is enough for beginners and you can expect to make 15-25 kills, but your kills will be slower, and you won’t be able to tank most of the damage. If you don’t feel confident with your survivability, you could also swap 1-3 sara brews for good food, like sharks.
  2. Neck slot: Amulet of Glory (ei) 14KThis setup will cost you around 7.5M with current prices (2019 June). If you’re looking for specific names here is a list below:

    Arrows slot: Any blessing, using unholy blessing on this example, 100k~

    Cape: any god’s cloak, using Bandos in this example.

    Armors/head slot: Guthan’s set 3M

    Weapon: Slayers’s staff (e). 20k / Abyssal whip (2.6M)

    Shield slot: Blessed spirit shield 1.2M

    Gloves: Combat braclet 13K

    Boots: Dragon Boots 500K

    Ring: Ring of Wealth 13k

    Inventory: Use runepouch for your cast runes, if you don’t own one, swap some sara brews for inventory space.

    1. Second gear will cost you around 26M and it offers high defence bonus which will extend your trip significantly. Bandos godsword will help you to lower Supreme’s defence bonus for faster kill and Guthix Claws spell is used as magic damage source, but if you don’t have 80 Magic level, Slayer darts will work as well.Arrows slot: Any blessing, using unholy blessing on this example, 100k~Neck slot: Amulet of Fury 3M

      Cape: God’s cape which matches your god’s staff.

      Armors/head slot: Guthan’s set 3M

      Weapon: God’s staff to match your god’s cape 80K / Abyssal Tentacle 4M.

      Shield slot: Dragonfire shield 6M

      Gloves: Barrows Gloves 100K

      Boots: Dragon Boots 500K

      Ring: Ring of Wealth 13K.

      Spec. weapon: Bandos godsword, 10M

      Inventory: Use runepouch for your cast runes, if you don’t own one, swap some restores and/or sara brews for inventory space.

      1. Third gear setup will cost around 110M and you can expect highest potential with it. Amulet of Fury is used in this example for its higher defence bonuses, but you can swap it for Amulet of Torture if you want even faster Dagannoth Supreme kills. Spectral shield is very helpful against prayer draining effect which will be caused by DKS lair dwellers -Spinolyps. Bandos godsword is used in this example, but you can swap it for Saradomin godsword and its HP/Prayer restoring effect.Arrows slot: Any blessing, using unholy blessing on this example, 100k~Neck slot: Amulet of Fury 3M

        Cape: Fire cape

        Armors/head slot: Guthan’s set 3M

        Weapon: Charged Trident of the Swamp 3.4M / Abyssal Tentacle 4M

        Shield slot: Spectral spirit shield 52M / Dragon Defender

        Gloves: Barrows Gloves 100K

        Boots: Primodial Boots 29.3M

        Ring: Berserker Ring 3.5M

        Spec. weapon: Bandos godsword, 10M

        Inventory: Sanfew’s potions works well with this setup, but if you want a safer option, swap few restores and Sanfew potions for sara brews and bring antidote.
