Vorkath is a level 732 Dragon, which is fought during the Dragon Slayer 2 quest. It can then be fought again after the quest, similar to the Phantom Muspah and players will often farm this boss for lucrative profits. The boss is often considered one of the most consistent money makers in the game, alongside Zulrah. Be careful though, as the version fought in the quest is significantly weaker to the version post-quest. Read on in this osrs guide to see the best ways to efficiently kill the boss.

Ranged Gear Setup for Vorkath

Pouch: Law/Chaos/Dust – Regular Spellbook

Dragon-hunter Crossbow Setup

  • Pray Range through-out the fight.
  • Use elite void range if you don’t own Masori, Zenyte Vambs or the Lightbearer ring. The difference in dps is very minimal.
  • Extended super antifire potions are required. If it is not the super variant it will not provide the maximum dragonfire protection.
  • If you do not own a Dragonfire Ward, then you should use a regular anti-dragon shield. Other shields that do not provide protection against dragonfire are not advised. DFS is also bad due to its negative range accuracy.
  • Guthix Rests are optional and can be used to tick-eat blue mage attacks when below 30 hp. They are beneficial as they do not stall your attacks like regular food will.
  • Zaryte Crossbow is the best special attack weapon for Vorkath. If you can not afford it then you can use a Blowpipe, exclusively for its special attack.
  • Switch to diamond bolts between 30 and 35%.
  • Gear does NOT change if on task (blue dragons).

Melee Gear Setup for Vorkath

Both setups result in similar kills per hour (33/hr ar maximum efficiency). However, the melee method is slightly better profit per hour. Due to fewer supplies in the form of bolts being required.

Dragon Hunter Lance Setup

  • Pray Mage through-out
  • Extended super antifire potions are required. If it is not the super variant it will not provide the maximum dragonfire protection.
  • Slayer Staff/SOTD/SOL switch will allow you to autocast the Crumble Undead Spell.
  • Dragon Claws to be used as a special attack. They are slightly better than using a Bandos Godsword. If you can not afford claws then do bring a bgs.

Vorkath Mechanics

  • Melee Attack: If in melee range of Vorkath, he can swipe at the player with a slash based attack.
  • Magic Attack: Blue projectile that deals up to 30 damage. Protect from Magic negates damage.
  • Ranged Attack: Projectile in form of spiked ball. Deals up to 32 damage. Can be negated with protect from missiles.
  • Special Attacks: Every 7 regular attacks vorkath does he will then do a special attack. They are as follows:
    • Acid Pools: Acid launched randomly around the arena. He will then fire 25 more acid pools at the players feet. If you take damage from standing on the acid it will heal Vorkath up to 10 damage per tick. Vorkath will take 50% reduced damage during the special attack phase. If you stand on the acid he throws at your feet you will receive 25-41 damage per tick.
    • Zombified Spawn: Vorkath launches an ice barrage attack, freezing the player in place. He will then summon the Zombified Spawn, the spawn travels toward the player, if it is not killed before reaching the player it will deal up to 60 damage. The damage dealt scales based on its remaining hp when reaching the player. The crumble undead spell can be used to always effectively kill this NPC. But, make sure the spell is always queued and ready to be used, as there is a travel time for the spell to reach the spawn. During this phase Vorkath himself will be immune to all damage.
  • Deadly Dragonfire Attack: Vorkath launches a giant orange ball into the sky, with its final destination projected for where the player is currently standing. The projectile is a 3×3 so move 2 tiles away to dodge it. If not dodged this attack has the capability to one hit players.
  • Pink Dragonfire Attack: Deactivates all prayers. Set-up your quick prayers to help deal with this fast.
  • Green Venom Dragonfire Attack: Can inflict venom. Use Anti-venom+ to avoid this being an issue.
  • Normal Orange Dragonfire Attack: Deals dragonfire damage. Use super extended antifire as previously noted.
