The TzHaar Fight Cave is an advanced area in RuneScape introduced in October 2005. It is a combat minigame in the Karamja volcano. Up until this update, the Kalphite Queen had been the most powerful of all creatures within RuneScape. However, the introduction of the TzHaar Fight Cave created 2 monsters, the Level 702 TzTok-Jad and the Level 360 Ket-Zek, both of which are higher in level. However, the Kalphite Queen is widely regarded to be more difficult to defeat than the Level 360 Ket-Zek, despite its lower combat level.

Location Edit

Deep under the ground of Karamja, a new species of creature has been discovered. This was introduced in early October 2005. To find the entrance to this underground city, or TzHaar, players must go into the volcano dungeon on Karamja. Once there, players will see a cave, which leads to TzHaar.

Monsters Edit

The residents here are much stronger than most places, which is to be expected from a race living inside a volcano, and have devised many tests of skill and strength. Some, like the TzHaar fight pit, are meant as tournaments between bold adventurers. However, the TzHaar Fight Cave pits adventurers against a succession of monsters, each harder than the last. The final boss is the immensely powerful Level 702 TzTok-Jad, but to get to him, players must battle past six other types of monsters ranging from level 22 up to level 360.

The monsters are in order of appearance:

Lvl Image Name HP Attack Hits Notes
22 Tz-Kih Tz-Kih 10 melee 4 drains prayer when melee; range to kill
45 Tz-Kek Tz-Kek 20 melee 7 recoil damage of 1
22 Tz-Kek (lv 22) Tz-Kek 10 melee 4 2 appear after a 45 is killed
90 Tok-Xil Tok-Xil 40 range, melee 13 see wave breakdown for when to use prayer
180 Yt-MejKot Yt-MejKot 90 melee 25 can heal self and other monsters
360 Ket-Zek Ket-Zek 180 magic, melee 50s range with Protect from Magic
702 TzTok-Jad TzTok-Jad 255 magic, range, melee 97 see text
108 Yt-HurKot Yt-HurKot 60 melee 14

Appears when Jad falls below half HP and will heal Jad if;

A. They are in melee distance of Jad and not interrupted.

B. They are in combat at any time, regardless of distance from Jad

See the monsters wiki page for techniques.

The goal of the Fight Cave is to reach and defeat the level 702 TzTok-Jad, but that is extremely difficult to do, and is impossible for all but the most versed in combat tactics. Unlike the Kalphite Queen, players cannot team up against these monsters.

TzTok-Jad Edit

Main article: TzTok-Jad

TzTok-Jad (sometimes referred to as "702" or "Jad" because of its level and name, with no known correct pronunciation) is the final monster encountered in the TzHaar Fight Cave Minigame. Examining the monster yields the discouraging message "This is going to hurt..." TzTok-Jad is the highest level monster in all of RuneScape, and those who are skilled enough to defeat it are in for grand rewards...Namely the Fire cape, the only animated cape in the game and arguably the cape with the best stats in the game. 

Tactical Analysis Edit

Tips Edit

Tzhaarminimap

Probably safest area

Especially in later waves (38+) you should stand in the northeastern corner, as 3 of 5 spawns get stuck that way behind Italy rock and the other rock to west. Getting the 2+ prayer boost at Edgeville Monastary may be a help in the caves, although its only a 2+ prayer boost of out about 20 Super Restores, it can help if it comes down to prayer flicking Jad. Also, whenever killing a safespotted monster behind another one, kill the un-safespotted ones first, then immediatley attack the safespotted one, as the death annimation of the un-safespotted one will allow you to get a free hit on the safespotted one(s). You can pause the rounds at anytime by clicking log out, if you finish the wave, when logged in you will be started on the next wave, if you log out before you finish, you will log in at the start of that wave again, this is also useful for letting your hitpoints regenerate inbetween rounds, you can log out, get the message, and finish the wave, and let your hitpoints regenerate, or you can just safespot everything in the current wave and wait for your hitpoints to regenerate. Prayer flicking eagle or hawk eye on the high levels (360), is useful if you can do it fast enough. It is also advised to turn auto-retaliate off during the caves, as the 90's and 360's can lure you our of safespots, putting you in one and others path, allowing you, and 180's to melee you.

Fire Cape Edit

If one is successful in defeating TzTok-Jad, they receive 8,032 TokKul and the much-coveted Fire cape. This cape has an animated "lava" pattern. The animation shows lava flowing downwards continually.

The Fire Cape is considered the best cape in RuneScape It provides much more protection than the Cape of Legends and the Obsidian cape. It is, of course, nontradeable. The only capes better in any area are the God capes which provide a higher magic offensive bonus only, Ava's attractor or accumulator in ranged attack bonus, and the trimmed capes of achievement, which are only higher in prayer.

Previously after redefeating TzTok-Jad the player would receive 16,064 TokKul as a reward which was highly inadvisable due to the high cost of each trip, but after an update the Fire Cape became a stackable item when placed in a players bank allowing players to receive another Fire Cape and TokKul as a reward if they dared to re-enter the caves.
