Dagannoths are sea-based monsters that live in the Lighthouse basement. After players finish Horror from the Deep, regular dagannoth are found there.

When fighting, it is recommended to use melee armour, bring good food, and pray against range. At high levels it is possible to stay for long periods of time with good food. It may be advisable to use Soul Split or bring a team with you to distribute the damage taken. Intelligent strategies, and careful selection of gear and abilities are a must if a player wishes to stay for more than a few minutes at a time.

Indeed, the number of attacks aimed at a player often seem to overload the server. At times, this will prevent players from picking up items from the floor, or prevent them from moving. 1-click teleports will still work in these situations, which makes it a good idea to carry one here.

Unlike the dagannoth found in other locations, the dagannoth here do not drop hides of any variety. Hide hunters will need to go to either the Chaos Tunnels or Waterbirth Island. These dagannoth are good for rushing a slayer task or if collecting Gold charms. Crimson charm collectors will have better luck at the Chaos Tunnels or Waterbirth Island.


Fighting dagannoth with blood barrage without sustaining any damage.


A good strategy is to use a Saradomin godsword and pray against Ranged. With the Saradomin godsword, you can maintain your health and prayer points without food or potions. A dwarf multicannon can also be used in this dungeon.

It is strongly advised to pray against Ranged, as it seems to reduce the max hit of their ranged attacks to 1.
