TzHaar Fight Cave
The fight cave is a combat mini game located in the Karamja volcano with various powerful monsters. Fight cave is a hot spot for players looking for faster slayer xp since the monsters can be unlocked as a slayer task too. In each round a 63 wave will give 37K slayer xp. TzHaar fight caves inhabit the most powerful monsters as compared to other locations. They range from Level 22 and goes till Level 720 (Jad). Each monster is on a higher level than the previous one, hence the level of difficulty keeps on increasing gradually until you reach the final battle with the Jad.

How to get to TzHaar Fight Cave?
The entrance of this cave can be found by going inside the Crandor and Karamja Dungeon. Inside that, you will see a cave leading to Mor Ul Rek. Another mode of travel can be through the fairy ring (Code: B-L-P).
How do you get a fire cape?
This can only be obtained by killing TzTok-Jad and walking out of the cave alive. Players have to complete the mini game which consists of 43 Waves and walk out alive in order to get the fire cape as a reward. If the player and TzTok-Jad die simultaneously, kill count will increase but cape will not be awarded. The task can be completed within 35-40 minutes if you are using the best gear and equipment with 99 ranged with some experience. It will be longer depending on your skill, equipment and ranged level. What if you lose a fire cape upon death? Fire cape will have to be re obtained by defeating Jad and completing the mini game again. You can also keep multiple fire capes by getting 1 each time you defeat Jad.
Recommended gear and inventory
The most effective method is to use the Ranged only method rather than the most common Guthans method. But if you use ranged, make sure to keep the defence bonus maximum in order to save food until the last wave. We will show you the most effective gear and inventory you can opt for to rush through the 63 waves easily and eventually defeat the main enemy. However, stay motivated even if you fail for the first time. This will happen for sure but keep trying and you will get there within a few attempts unless you are lucky and skilled enough to go through it for the first time.
- Slayer Helmet (i)
- Necklace of anguish
- Ava’s assembler (strongly recommended) / Ava’s device
- Armadyl chestplate
- Armadyl chainskirt
- Toxic Blowpipe
- Broad bolts (for cave) / Diamond bolts (e) (for Jad)
- Barrows gloves
- Pegasian boots
- Archers ring (i)
This is the most competent gear that can be used in the fight caves and enables you to keep more food and potions in inventory without the armour taking up any inventory slots.
- 2-3 ranging potions (4)
- 6-8 Saradomin brews (4)
- Fill rest of slots with super restores or prayer potions (4), but you should have at least 1 restore to counteract the brews’ effects on a 1:3 ratio of restores to brews (i.e. 3 doses of brew requires 1 dose of restore to counteract the effect of brews).
- Purple sweets (stackable food, heals 1-3 HP) – optional
- Saradomin godsword also helps as it reduces the need to use Saradomin brews and prayer potions
- 250 diamond bolts (e) (when ranging TzTok-Jad)
How Hard is it to get a fire cape?
Fire cape can be relatively hard if you are attempting it for the first time. If you die in between the waves, you will have to begin all over again from Wave 1. However, the mini game is safe and you don’t lose any items. The minimum recommended requirement to begin the mini game is 43+ Prayer and 70+ Ranged. If you have a prayer level lower than 43, you will be able to pass through a couple of waves only.
