How to Get to Cerberus
The location of Cerberus’ lair is in Taverley Dungeon, at the hellhounds’ area. There, you will find a small opening that you are able to crawl into to get into the lair. If you are searching for effective ways to get to Taverley Dungeon, teleport to Falador is the way and then use the wall shortcut near the West bank. It is only a short run from the dungeon entrance. Or, you can move one’s Player-owned house to Taverley, come out through the portal and run south.
There are two methods of navigating the dungeon. You are able to go around the long way to be able to reach the hellhounds area. You will need a dusty key for doing it. Alternatively, you are able to crawl via a pipe shortcut (70 Agility) or you are able to run via mysterious flooring (80 Agility). It nullifies the need of bringing a dusty key on every trip. Both obstacles are able to be boosted with a Summer pie. It means that you only need 65/ 75 Agility to use the shortcuts with the help of the pie. If the poison spiders nearby manage to poison, it is better to drink an antipoison potion.
A Key master teleport can also be used. It will be able to teleport you straight into the lair. It can only be gained from Cerberus herself, in quantities of three and at a rate of 1/ 64.
General Strategy For Defeating Cerberus
When you are fighting Cerberus, activate Protect from Magic. Cerberus is a hellhound-type boss so that she has high offensive stats (220), but she has Defence level (100) which is low. Her weakness is to melee attacks, mainly crush-based ones. However, she is a little bit resistant to stab attacks and resistant against magic, slash and ranged attacks. Nevertheless, she is very weak to ranged, especially the twisted bow.
After Cerberus spawns, she is not able to be attacked. She only has an examine option when she is sitting. After she detects a player in the arena, the thing that she will do is stand up to confront the intruder and now she becomes attackable. If there are no players inside, she will go back to the centre of her chamber. Then, her attack option will be deleted. It will also restore all of her health if damaged.
Dealing damage as fast as possible is better to do when you are taking note of attacks of Cerberus. The explosive marker and soul combo are the most common cause of death. For instance, during attacks 14 and 15, souls will be summoned by Cerberus first. After that, she follows up this attack with explosive markers. The markers usually are able to make players confused when they try to avoid them and eat up, forgetting about the souls who are able to deal heavy or fatal damage in the process. So, it is better for you to count the attacks of Cerberus and deal with the spirits as highest priority. Usually, ranged users have an advantage over melee users. It is because the targeted marker is not implemented on the same tick. Cerberus begins the mechanic and it gives them more time to move away from the marker. It also gives their full attention to the incoming souls. Melee users need to count the attacks and then try to avoid running into any other pools in place.
