OSRS - Old School Runescape Boss Gear and Guides

Detailed information, tactics and setups for all Old School Runescape bosses, from the King Black Dragon to Zulrah.

Old School Runescape has come a long way since it’s release with over 30 different boss monsters and challenges, each with their own unique requirements and recommended tactics.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember if you need to bring your trusty Abyssal Tentacle or if it’s time to dust off the Zamorakian Hasta, that’s where we’ve got you covered.

With detailed information, tactics and gear setups for each and every boss in Old School Runescape, we hope that our boss guides below serve as useful tools to new players and Old School veterans alike.


Challenges in Old School Runescape require the player to battle through a series of increasingly difficult waves, before reaching and defeating the final boss.


Raids in Old School Runescape pit groups of players up against multiple bosses in an instance - these bosses lead up to the final boss, after which loot is randomly assigned to each team member.

Solo Bosses

These Old School Runescape bosses were designed to be fought solo, they are found with an instance and therefore no one else can join you in your battle.

God Wars Dungeon

God Wars Dungeon in old School Runescape houses four unique bosses. These bosses vary in difficulty and were designed for groups, but a high-levelled player with good gear should be able to solo each of them.

Slayer Bosses

Slayer Bosses in Old School Runescape are designed to challenge players training slayer - often killing slayer bosses will yield slower XP than regular slayer training, but at a greater reward.

Dagannoth Kings

The Dagannoth Kings in Old School Runescape all reside in a single dungeon and require a player to utilise all angles of the combat triangle.

Miscellanious Bosses

These bosses can be found in all shapes and sizes through gielinor and vary in difficulty.

Wilderness Bosses

These Wilderness bosses in Old School Runescape have some unique drops and can be killed in a group or solo, but their placement in the Wilderness means you're likely to encounter other players looking to kill you instead.
