The Kalphite Queen is the biggest monster in runescape. She is level 333 but is actually easier than you may think if you put your mind to it. She uses all three types of combat (melee, mage, range). Most people when fighting the queen go in groups of about 4-10 people because it is a multi combat area. It is possible to kill her with just 2 people and even 1 if you are a high enough level. I would not suggest attempting to kill the queen in a group before you are combat level 80, and i wouldn't suggest trying to kill her with 2 people before you are 100.

What to bring:

For Groups:

To fight the queen you oviously need armor. Now what kind of armor? Well that is up to you. You should bring your best armor, a good weapon, and either magic spells or a bow and arrows. You can also bring full dragon hide armor of the best you can wear if you are afraid of losing items. Also wear a glory ammy and ring of wealth if you have them. The other items you will need are a shantay pass, a super set, an anti poison potion (super anti poisons are helpful instead), teleport runes to camelot, a prayer potion (4 dose) or two, and the rest of your inventory of the best food you can get. Sharks are the best here. (If you want you can bring a range or mage potion to help you a bit but its not necessary) Lastly two people in your group will need ropes. Here is a picture of what you will need fighting the queen in a group.

For Duoing or Soloing:

It is possible to duo and solo the queen using the same armor and weapons as mentioned in the "for groups section" but the easiest way is to buy a set of verac's armor including the weapon and use that. Also wear a glory ammy and ring of wealth if you have them. The other items you will need are a shantay pass, a super set, an anti poison potion (super anti poisons are helpful instead), teleport runes to camelot, a prayer potion (4 dose) or two, and the rest of your inventory of the best food you can get. Sharks are the best here. Lastly two people will need ropes. If you are soloing you will need 2 ropes yourself. Here is a picture of what you will need duoing or soloing.

NOTE: For those than don't know veracs special ability: It allows damaging hits to sometimes hit as if the thing being hit is wearing no armor. It ignores armor basically. Also prayer counts as armor. On the queen this is very helpful because you can melee the second form instead of ranging or maging like usual. It allows for bigger and more accurate hits.

Finding the queen:

The Queen is fairly easy to get to. Once you have your group and you are all ready, make sure you have your ropes and everything else you need, Starting at shantay pass follow these maps to get to the queen.

Start at The shantay pass (there is a bank chest here if you need it) use your shantay pass going through the archway and follow the red path on the map which leads to the kalphite lair. Use a rope with the tunnel entrance and you will now be able to enter it.

Now on this map you will be at the place that says entrance. (It's a good idea to use your super anti poison potion now if you have it) Follow the red path again on the map until you get to the red dot. At this dot it is a good idea to use your super potions. You are about to enter the Kalphite Queens Lair! When you and your group are ready, run forward and use another rope with this tunnel entrance. Go down and you are about to fight the biggest monster in the game

How you and she fight:

This is probably the most complex fight in the game. The Kalphite queen has two stages. When you kill the first, the second one spawns in its place. The first stage uses the prayers protect from range and protect from mage so only melee combat will affect it. The second stage has protect from melee so you need to range or mage it. In addition to this both forms have very high stats so it is hard to hit and it hits hard. Be careful here because she can hit in the mid 30's. Watch your prayer and make sure it doesnt run out. You should be using protect from mage through the whole fight. Also it is not necessary but it is a good idea to use protect item, and the 3 best stat ones. Here is a picture if you dont know what i mean.

While fighting the queen has 3 different attacks. Range, mage, and melee. Because the mage is strongest you are using protect from it. The range is the next strongest and it can hit more than one person at once. The melee only hits one person at once and it isnt as strong as the range attack. Here are pictures of each.

The Melee Attack


The Mage Attack

So its pretty basic from here on. Eat when you need to (try to keep as close to full without wasting food), use a pray pot when its needed so ur prayers dont fall, hit it hit it hit it, and if you arent using veracs, switch to your range or mage gear for the second form. Pretty simple once u get the hang of it.


If you have done kq a few times and you are ready to get more into the details of how to kill kq, this is the section for you.

1) First of all it is a good idea to spread out when you are fighting. The Queenes range attack does the most damage really and she can shoot at more than one person at a time. If you spread out all around the queen she cant shoot at all the people. He are some basic diagrams:

In this picture the two people are in a straight line with eachother so the queen can only hit one of them at a time. (good)

Posted Image

In this picture the two arent in a straight line so they both get hit at the same time. (bad)

Posted Image

In this last one there are 4 people but if they stay in straight lines with one other person only 2 of them will get hit at a time which is obviously better than all 4 getting hit.

If there are more than 4 people you can still just spread out as much as possible and you wont all be hit.

2) The second strategy some people use is to get extra food. There are many ways to do this. First you could use your super pots before you leave the shantay pass and bank the super set so you can have an extra 3 spots for food. Next some people share an anti poison pot which opens one spot for one person. And lastly you can go through the shantay pass all ready, then drop a shark, go back through, get another shark and shantay pass and go through again. You can pick up the shark you dropped before so you can fill the spot the shantay pass was taking up.

The Loot:

First of all here is a link to tip.it's bestiary entry for the Kalphite Queen. It lists all possible drops. HERE IS THE LINK

Next this is my own personal records. Me and my friend took some time to record everything that dropped from our 100+ trips that we have taken to kill the queen. Unfortunatly we havent had a chain drop yet but it is totally luck. BTW this is a rather long list so you may need to scroll a lot.

it's a lot easier to get over yourself when you look at intelligence the same way you look at beauty, or height, or eye color: being smart is easy, but being good is hard ... being smart is handed to you, being good is handed to *nobody*.
