Mightiest Turoth:

Mightiest Turoth

Bring a Leaf-bladed weapon (or Slayer darts or Broad tipped arrows/bolts), armor, and some Prayer potions. Once you pass through the barrier (Southwest) turn on Protect from Melee. The Mightiest Turoth requires at least 55 Slayer to do any damage.

Kurask Overlord:

Kurask Overlord

For this battle your supplies should consist of armor, Prayer potions, a weapon. A Leaf-bladed weapon (or Slayer darts or Broad tipped arrows/bolts) are the only useful weapons. The Kurask Overlord requires at least level 70 Slayer to do any damage. Upon passing through the barrier (Northwest) turn on Protect from Melee.

Monstrous Cave Crawler:

Monstrous Cave Crawler

To defeat this large Cave Crawler a weapon, armor, Super anti-poison, Prayer potions, and food are required for this fight. Once you pass through the barrier (North East) turn on Protect from Ranged and drink a dose of your Super anti-poison pot. The Monstrous Cave Crawler's poison corrodes the protection your anti-poison potion provides. Level 10 Slayer is required to deal with this boss.

Basilisk Boss:

Basilisk Boss

Bring a single-handed weapon, armor of your choice, a Mirror shield, Super restore potions, and some food for this battle. We also recommend bringing someSuper attack and Super strength potions. The Basilisk Boss requires at least level 40 Slayer to do any damage. Before you pass through the barrier (South East) drink your super pots and turn on Protect from Magic. Once you pass through the barrier be keep an eye on your stats, even with a mirror shield the Basilisk Boss will lower your stats. When you feel that your levels have dropped too low, take a drink of Super restore or Super attack/Super strength potion.


Each boss will summon several of his minions throughout the battle. The easiest way to defeat the bosses is to turn protect from melee/ranged on and concentrate your attacks on the boss. Attack the Monster Boss continuously. Do not worry about killing the spawned creatures. Once it dies, they will die as well. Remember to have your Masked Earmuffs or the Slayer Helmet equipped at all time.


With each death of a boss you earn a 1,000 Slayer experience. This makes a total of 4,000 Slayer experience to be gained from this mini-quest.

Note: You DO NOT get any drops, nor do you recieve slayer experience if you should kill any of these bosses when you do not have them as a task.

With defeating a boss you do not only unlock the access to one of the rooms or receive 1,000 Slayer experience per boss defeated. You also unlock the ability to use one of the 4 portals located in the quadrants on the bottom floor of the Desert Slayer Dungeon.

These portals take you to these locations, and are only One Way Teleports:
