Gear Setup

  • Combat Stats: It’s recommended to have at least 87 Slayer and high Ranged or Magic levels for effective killing.
  • Gear: You’ll need Ranged or Magic gear with good offensive and defensive bonuses. Mystic robes, Void Knight equipment, or Karil’s crossbow with Karil’s crossbow bolt racks are suitable choices.
  • Weapon: For Magic, use Trident of the Seas or Swamp. For Ranged, a Blowpipe with toxic darts or a crossbow with broad bolts works well.
  • Food: Bring high-healing food like sharks, Saradomin brews, or similar.
  • Teleportation: It’s a good idea to bring an Amulet of Glory or other teleportation methods to escape quickly if needed.

Combat Strategy:

  1. Protect from Missiles or Protect from Magic: The Cave Kraken uses both Magic and Ranged attacks. Depending on your chosen combat style (Magic or Ranged), activate the corresponding protection prayer (Protect from Missiles or Protect from Magic).
  2. Killing the Cave Krakens:
    • Attack the Cave Kraken with your chosen combat style. When you damage it enough, it will retreat into the water, and four small, passive Spawn will appear.
    • Kill the Spawn to lure the Cave Kraken back out. If you don’t kill the Spawn, the Cave Kraken won’t come back.
    • Continue attacking and repeating this process.
  3. Special Attack: The Cave Kraken has a special attack where it pulls you towards it if you’re far away. Be prepared to move back in place.

Drops and Rewards:

  • Cave Krakens have several valuable drops, including the Trident of the Seas, Kraken tentacle, and various Runes.
  • The unique item, the Trident of the Seas, is a popular drop. It’s a Magic staff that doesn’t require runes to cast spells.
  • Kraken tentacles can be used to charge the Trident of the Seas.
  • You may also receive the Pet Kraken, a boss pet.


  • Using Magic with the Trident of the Seas is the most common method for killing Cave Krakens.
  • Bringing an Eternal Amulet of Glory with unlimited teleports to the Piscatoris Fishing Colony is very convenient for quick banking and healing.
  • You can use fairy rings to reach the Kraken Cove quickly.
  • Be aware of your health and prayer points, and use the pool of water in the Kraken Cove for healing and prayer restoration.
