The Kalphite Queen (Kalphiscarabeinae Pasha), also called the KQ, is the 5th highest level monster in all of RuneScape, and is the 2nd highest level monster that is neither quest or mini-game related. The Kalphite Queen, along with Dust devils and Smoke devils, is most famous for dropping the Dragon chainbody armour.

The Kalphite Queen is one of the toughest monsters in RuneScape, and she can inflict large amounts of damage, with her ranged and magic attacks possessing 100% accuracy.[1] It is recommended for players to only bring items into the lair they are willing to lose.

LocationEdit

To get to the Kalphite Lair, you must enter the desert. The easiest way to do this is from the Shantay Pass.

The Shantay Pass is located south of Al Kharid. To go through the Pass, you will need to buy a Shantay pass from the nearby Shantay for a small fee.

The entrance is due west of the Shantay Pass, and is really a short run. If you are lucky and fast, the heat of the desert will not affect you. You will require a rope to enter the dungeon, which will be used in the process.

Alternatively, those with access to Dorgesh-Kaan will be able to find a tunnel in the Dorgesh-Kaan South Dungeon that leads through to the Kalphite Lair, emerging near the Kalphite Soldiers.

Please note: To enter the second tunnel into the Kalphite Queen area, you will need a second rope, so ensure you and anyone you bring with you has the necessary supplies

Two FormsEdit

The Kalphite Queen has a combat level of 333. Each form has 255 hitpoints, and her ranged and magic attacks have 100% accuracy. She transforms into two varieties of bug. In her first form, the Kalphite Queen is an immense scarab beetle; in her second form, she is a giant wasp.

As a beetle, she activates prayers preventing normal damage by Magic and Ranged attacks. As a wasp, she uses the Protect from Melee prayer. She varies her attack among Melee, Magic, and Ranged attacks. Challengers must prepare beforehand for these changes, or must be able to adapt styles. It should be noted that the second form is much more difficult to defeat than the first form.

Her Ranged attacks consists of her shooting barbed spines from her abdomen, inflicting up to 31 damage. If there are players close to the person being targeted with this attack they will also be hit, to avoid this players can stand on opposite sides of the Kalphite Queen. Her Magic attack hits up to 31 damage and bounces from player to player. Her Melee attack can also hit 31 damage, but is much less accurate than the magic and range attacks.

When doing Kalphite Queen as a team it is best to use protect from magic and stand on opposite sides of the queen.
