Dungeon Mechanics

Similar to the last dungeon, the Underground Lava Lake harkens back to base game combat, it is a relatively simple dungeon that can is designed to be completed in the early game of the expansion. This means the dungeon does not require advanced tactics, high levels, or complete optimization. Each monster is pulled directly from the associated Slayer Area, and as the player has been forced to fight each of these monsters before, they should be well versed in their dangers.

Intimidation

Just like every other monster in the , each enemy in the Underground Lava Lake has a passive effect that reduces the player's Damage Reduction. When in combat with Trogark, the player's base damage reduction is reduced by 20%, before any modifiers from the Combat Triangle.

Manual Clear

Manually clearing the Underground Lava Lake is a good way to get to the next dungeon, Lightning Region, as soon as possible.

Changing equipment sets to be able to fight each monster with Combat Triangle advantage can lower the required levels, especially Hitpoints required to clear the dungeon efficiently. The player should already have setups available from clearing each monster in the Lava Lake, but they will look similar to the following Magic build.

Rewards

Prayer

Potions

If the Waterfall Crossing obstacle is active use Damage Reduction Potion IV or Magic Damage Potion IV, otherwise use Diamond Luck Potion IV.

Summoning

  • Yak and Dragon - Avoids damage from burns inflicted by enemies, particularly useful for Trogark as it nullifies their burn lifesteal passive effect and reduces the maximum damage possible from the Unleashed Power special attack.
  • Witch and Lightning Spirit
  • Witch and Siren

Spells

There are three Archaic Spells unlocked by completing Ancient Sanctuary, for the purposes of completing these dungeons, they are all extremely close in power level. Any one of these can be used in place of the other

Remember to wear the correct Robes for the spell being used to get a fantastic boost to Accuracy Rating.
