Telos – RuneScape’s Toughest Boss | Manticore Weapons | Telos Contest


Once more unto the breach, boss fighters! Head into God Wars Dungeon 2 to battle a tough new boss with a unique reward system where the more you risk, the richer the plunder!

Read on to discover the fantastic manticore weapons in Solomon’s Store, an amazing competition for the greatest Telos slayers to win some awesome prizes (including 6 month membership packages), and all the usual patch notes, streaming info and other news.

New Boss - Telos

It turns out that messing with the anima in the Heart of Gielinor was not a good idea at all. Telos has awoken. This towering new boss exists to purge the entire planet of life when the precious anima resource is threatened.

Take him on in a new multi-phase fight where the more you risk, the greater your rewards.

Some of the highest-level gear that can be won includes:

  • Three tier 92 two-handed god weapons with unique special attacks - Seren Godbow, Staff of Sliske and the long-awaited Zaros Godsword.
  • Reprisal – a Zamorak-themed ability that is available to all combat styles, requires 85 Constitution and is tradeable if you don’t wish to use it. It’s a threshold ability which causes you to store any damage you take for the next 6 seconds. You will still take this damage, but will then deal it straight back to your target!
  • A new Boss Pet
How to start

In order to begin the boss fight, you must obtain 4 sigil fragments by defeating each God Wars Dungeon 2 general, then combine them to make the complete sigil.


Use it on the new door that has appeared inside a great tree of crystal and anima near the dungeon’s entrance. Then, get ready for the fight of your life – be sure to come skilled up and kitted out with your very best gear.

Prevail, and you’ll be presented with a reward wheel loaded with your potential rewards. At this point you can spin the wheel, take your hard-won rewards and leave. Alternatively, you can risk it all and face Telos again at a higher difficulty (enrage) level for the chance of even better rewards.

Remember - if you die at any point during a Telos fight, or teleport away while the fight is in progress, you will lose all of your rewards and reset your kill count.


You will be able to bank and resupply after each successful Telos kill. You will even be able to log out or play other RuneScape content as your Telos progress will be saved until you return to his arena. However, you must eventually decide whether you have the skill and resources for another run or whether you’re best off taking your current level of prizes and moving on!



You can collect your rewards at any stage by returning to the outside of Telos’s arena and interacting with the font. Additionally, the enrage level of Telos is yours to set as you see fit, up to the highest level that you have been able to reach.


We’ll be hosting intrepid adventurers taking on Telos all of today (Monday 27th June) via our Twitch account. Make sure you tune in for expert tips, advice, and (of course) death.


Enjoy taking on Telos and immortalise yourself as the ultimate boss slayer!

83000 kills and 10 rare drops.


It is more common to get a third age dye, and druidic piece from a clue than to get a drop from this guy.

Apparently you need to chain a ton of kills past 100% enrage to even have a prayer of getting one of these items.


A real shame, the boss itself is less complex than araxxor, but with this stupid loot mechanic it ends up being 10 times more stressful if you want anything worthwhile. The regular drops are meh as expected.

So is it just 3 ranges (0-24%, 25%-99%, 100%+) or are there additional chances beyond that, i.e. any point in going higher than 100% save bragging rights?

Here's what one Jmod has said,




From that I would guess that the more 'gold' rated kills you have in a streak, the better.
