After Vorkath is awakening, his attack consists of six random attacks, six random standard attacks, one special attack, and other special attack. Throughout the kill, you have to keep run off and use control click to run. Offensively, he has 560 Attack, 308 Strength/Ranged, 150 Magic, +16 melee, +150 magic and +78 ranged accuracy. Defensively, he has a Defence level of 214, +26 stab/ranged, +108 slash/crush and +240 magic defence bonus.

The effective protection prayer to use based on the gear being used:
- Protect from Magic if you use Melee, a Toxic blowpipe, Book of law or Super antifire potion.
- Protect from Missiles if you use a crossbow along a Dragonfire ward, Dragonfire shield, Anti-dragon shield, or Super antifire potion.
Vorkath OSRS has the ability to hit up to 30 with magic, and 32 with melee and ranged. His melee attacks are very accurate. You must have quick-prayers set according to your combat style and weapon type to reactivate you when deactivated by Pink dragonfire. Aside from that, you also need to be prepared to click two spaces away if Vorkath uses his insta-kill vertical dragonfire attacks. In addition, he will be able to poison you with his venom dragonfire. Keep in mind that pink dragonfire can turn off every single active prayer. For this case, divine potions are very recommended over normal potions.
