The Catacombs of Kourend is a massive dungeon located beneath Great Kourend. It contains many of the Slayer monsters that are commonly assigned to players.

Note that the dwarf multicannon cannot be used here.

Players who bury bones of any type will have their prayer points restored by one. Having a Bonecrusher in your inventory will automatically give you the prayer point restore after each kill.


The main entrance is found by investigating the statue of King Rada I in the centre of the city. There are four other entrances scattered around the Houses of Great Kourend; however, these additional entrances will only appear once the player has used the respective rope inside the catacombs.

The fastest way to the center of the catacombs is through Xeric's talisman, with the "Xeric's Heart" function, which teleports you outside the statue of King Rada I. This does, however, require completion of the Architectural Alliance miniquest. Alternatively, the Teleport to Kourend spell will drop the player off near the statue of King Rada I.

The climbing ropes are located in the following areas:

The CatacombsEdit

Many of the normal monsters in the catacombs are slightly stronger compared to those found elsewhere on Gielinor. In addition, the majority of the catacombs are multi-combat. The only area where single-way combat appears is in the brutal dragon area.

The dark altar in the main entrance of the catacombs can be used to teleport to the four sections of the Catacombs; doing so requires using an ancient shard, which is obtained from the monsters in the catacombs.

There are also a few agility shortcuts around the dungeon, the highest of them requiring 34 Agility to use. These shortcuts are found in the following areas:

Using dark totem

A player uses the dark totem on the Dark Altar in the centre of the Catacombs.

  • Stepping stones: Two-way shortcut between the steel dragon and brutal red dragon area
  • Crevices:
    • Crevice A: Two-way shortcut between cyclops and ankous.
    • Crevice B: Two-way shortcut between warped jellies and greater nechryaels. Requires 34 Agility to use.

Beneath the Catacombs lurks Skotizo, a demi-boss whose lair requires the use of a dark totem. Components for the dark totem are obtained by killing the monsters (excluding ghosts) throughout the catacombs. The totem is used on the dark altar to access the lair.

Note: If the player has not used all totem pieces on each other upon getting the top piece, the player will not get anymore dark totem components until all three components are fused.
