Vorkath can be fought again after you complete Dragon Slayer II. Now, he is stronger. You have to know that Vorkath’s acid pool quickfire barrage, suicide spawn and insta-kill vertical dragonfire attacks can kill you immediately. For this case, here we are going to share information related to the best gear to use against Vorkath OSRS.
Best Gear for Fighting Vorkath
Here are some best gears for fighting Vorkath:
Dragon Hunter Crossbow
Dragon hunter crossbow is the best ranged weapon to use against Vorkath OSRS. Unfortunately, not all players can buy this weapons as its expensive cost. Passive effect damage and accuracy of the crossbow can improve stack with the Salve amulet (i) or Salve amulet(ei) and also Void Knight equipment allowing the players to hit in the 70 without special effects at 99 Ranged. But, the players need to note that the Salve amulet and Salve amulet (e) give no bonuses to Ranged whatsoever. In this case, the amulet should be imbued to give Ranged bonuses.
To receive the least amount of damage possible, the players have to use a dragonfire ward or anti-dragon shield with Dragon hunter crossbow. Also, the players need to pray for protecting from Missiles. The dragonfire shield is an inferior choice to the anti-dragon shield. It gives a negative Ranged bonus. Other items such as the twisted buckler or book of law will force the players to pray Protect from Magic, making them to take more damage each kill, and shortening their trips. Using 99 Ranged and a high Defence level, the players are able to expect anywhere from 3-6 kills with this setup. Remember that the rings of recoil do not inflict damage on Vorkath.
For those who do not have a dragon hunter crossbow, a Toxic blowpipe is an effective method of killing Vorkath. The players have to use Void Knight equipment if using a defence-reduction special attack weapon. Alternatively, using standard ranging armour (such as black d’hide) will be higher damage output and give higher defence than normal void equipment, while elite void is still quite strong. Aside from that, the players have to use Protect from Magic with the blowpipe along with a super antifire potion. In addition, the players have to use a Bandos godsword or dragon warhammer at the start of the fight to bring down Vorkath’s defence.
After the players kill Vorkath or success to reduce Vorkath’s defence with both special attacks, then the players have to replenish their special attack bars with a restoration pool or better. At 99 Ranged and rune darts, it is highly recommended to stay regardless of whether or not the player has landed a special attack.
Dragon Hunter Lance
Dragon hunter lance is the most effective melee weapon to use against Vorkath OSRS. The lance’s passive effect damage and accuracy can increase stack with the Salve amulet (e) or Salve amulet(ei), allowing the players to hit frequently and high. The players have to utilize Protect from Magic and wear the melee armour, attacking Vorkath once before moving away. Do not forget to take note of his attack speed. This will make sure that the players are going to avoid his melee attacks, and only take damage from dragonfire and ranged attacks. For those who use a Bandos godsword or dragon warhammer, first you have to lower Vorkath’s defences so that their attacks are more accurate.
- An ammo switch (if you use crossbow).
- Toxic blowpipe.
- 1 anti-venom+.
- 3 up to 4 super restores or prayer potions.
- Rune pouch with dust runes, law runes, and chaos runes for casting Crumble Undead spells and Teleport to House.
- Super set or divine super combat potion (if you use Melee, or blowpipe with Bandos godsword or Dragon warhammer).
- Divine ranging potion or bastion potion (if you use Ranged).
- Extended super antifire.
- An emergency teleport (For optional).
- A teleport to Rellekka.
- Food, such as sharks.
- Guthix rest offer you to heal small amounts of health without losing ticks. Otherwise cooked karambwan are useful for combo eating at low HP. Also, it can be used as a replacement to anti-venom+ because it reduces venom to poison.
Once Vorkath is awakening, his attack pattern has six random standard attacks, six random attacks, one special attack, and the other special attack. Throughout the kill the players have to keep run off and use control click to run when needed. Need to know that offensively Vorkath OSRS has 560 Attack, 308 Strength/Ranged, 150 Magic, +16 melee, +150 magic and +78 ranged accuracy. While defensively, he has a Defence level of 214, +26 stab/ranged, +108 slash/crush and +240 magic defence bonus. This makes Vorkath similar to most dragons in OSRS because he is weak against stab melee and ranged.
The effective protection prayer to use depends on the gear being used:
- Protect from Magic if you use Melee, a Toxic blowpipe, the Book of law or Super antifire potion.
- Protect from Missiles if you use a crossbow along a Dragonfire ward, Dragonfire shield or Anti-dragon shield, and Super antifire potion.
In fact, Vorkath has ability to hit up to 30 with magic, and 32 with melee and ranged. His high attack level means that his melee attacks are very accurate, even though it is less common compared to magic and ranged, and it is only performed in melee distance. You must have quick-prayers set according to your combat style and weapon type to reactivate you when deactivated by the pink dragonfire. Also, you have to be prepared to click two spaces away if Vorkath uses his insta-kill vertical dragonfire attacks.
Vorkath will be able to poison the players with his venom dragonfire. Remember that the pink dragonfire turns every single active prayer off, including Preserve. For this case, divine potions are highly recommended over normal potions. While recoil damage including Vengeance and rings of recoil do not work on Vorkath.
