Dagannoth Prime is one of three Dagannoth Kings which reside in the Waterbirth Island dungeon. His primary attack style is ranged, however, the other two Dagannoth Kings – Rex and Supreme – use Melee and Magic respectively. For this reason, if you’re not careful within the dungeon, you may be under threat from all three combat styles at once.
There are two common tactics used at the Dagannoth Kings. If you want to be able to kill Prime specifically, you will have to use the tribrid method in which you kill all three kings. You are not able to kill Dagannoth Prime without also having to deal with the other Dagannoth Kings.
It is however possible to solo Dagannoth Rex, so if you’re looking for a guide in which you can just kill one Dagannoth King at a time, you can check out our Dagannoth Rex guide here.
There are a few reasons why players regularly kill the Dagannoth Kings.
- Each Dagannoth King has a unique best in slot ring drop – a coveted drop for ironmen.
- The Freminick Elite diary unlocks the ability to acquire all Dagannoth King bones as noted, which increases the profitability of the DKs substantially.
- Slayer tasks of Dagannoths are quite common and high-level players will often do the task at DKs for the high profits.
- Dagannoth Kings are a fun, profitable group activity for friends and clans alike.
Waterbirth Dungeon Notes – In order to get through the first section of the Waterbirth Dungeon, there is a stone door which requires two players to stand on two separate triggers. If you are alone, you can use a ‘pet rock’ instead of a second player – which can be acquired from The Fremennik Trials quest.
The next section of the Waterbirth Dungeon requires you to use the special attack of a Rune thrownaxe.
The rest of the Waterbirth Island dungeon and the route to the Dagannoth Kings can be treacherous if you don’t plan ahead. You can view a full map of the dungeon here.
