Kraken fight

The player must disturb the four smaller whirlpools before they can successfully disturb the large whirlpool.

The Kraken is a stronger and larger version of the Cave kraken. It requires level 87 Slayer to kill. Located at the Stronghold Slayer Cave, it can only be attacked if you have cave krakens as a Slayer assignment, which also requires level 50 Magic. Along with these monsters and their non-boss variant, they are the only monsters that drop the Kraken tentacle. In addition to the tentacle, the Kraken is the only monster to drop the Trident of the seas.

Like its smaller brethren, the Kraken is submerged underwater. To start the fight, the four whirlpools around it must be disturbed; this will release a level 112 Enormous Tentacle which attacks with magic. When all four whirlpools are disturbed, the larger one can disturbed, which will result in the Kraken popping out. Both the Kraken and its tentacles attack with magic; the Kraken can hit very hard, but often misses, while the tentacles are much more accurate but deal less damage. Protect from Magic does not reduce any damage they deal to you (nor does it reduce their accuracy).

Due to its popularity, an update on 19 March 2015 allowed players to create a Kraken instance for 25,000 coins. The player does not need to carry coins on them to create the instance. The player does need to be careful in the instance though, as it only holds one player (the creator), and any items you drop will be permanently lost upon exiting, including those if you die.

As with all monsters in the Stronghold Slayer Cave, they can only be attacked if you have them as a Slayer assignment.
