Level 112 ganodermic beasts are one of the best moneymaking monsters in the game. Found in the bottom level of the Polypore Dungeon, they require 95 Slayer to kill and are weak to fire spells. They drop various items worth picking up, including ganodermic flakes and high-level seeds. Magic notepaper is recommended for longer trips to note their ganodermic boots, gloves and the polypore stick, which can fill up an inventory fast and end a trip early.

To kill ganodermic beasts, you'll need a good weapon -- at level 99 Magic and using fire spells, a level 70 staff or higher will guarantee 100% accuracy. Very powerful defensive armour is not as important if you are using Soul Split, although virtus armour or robes of subjugation are helpful for their damage boost. Soul Split is a near-requirement for long stays, as the ganodermic beasts do enough damage with their regular attack and infestation. The bonecrusher and demon horn necklace combination give you enough prayer points to use Soul Split whenever needed, it's recommended to bring Prayer renewal flask in case the prayer restore through the necklace isn't enough to sustain Torment and Soul Split. If available, extreme magic potions also considerably boost magic damage.

An alternative for using Soul Split is the use of Blood amulet of fury or Arcane blood necklace which will heal their user every 20 seconds of combat for 200-500, dealing the same amount of damage to surrounding units. However, the player will have to switch necklaces each kill if they bring the demon horn necklace with them. Ganodermic beasts can drop anywhere from 1-3 sharks uncommonly to help offset their damage, although the player should not be completely dependent on their food drops.

It is recommended to kill the beasts either in the main or agility sections in the dungeon. Most of the time, all three sections are empty and this can result in finding an easy spot. However, the spawns in the dungeoneering section are too far to get consistent kills, which can lower kill and profit rates. Try to find a spot where two spawns are located, as they have a relatively fast respawn rate and the one should respawn while you are dealing with the other one.

When attacking, use the basic abilities Wrack and Sonic Wave frequently, using Combust and Dragon Breath when needed. Use Asphyxiate and Wild Magic when available, although it is not recommended to use if they reach below 3,500 life points due to the waste of the ability. Stunning them is a very easy way of killing them, as a player can easily kill them before the stun's effect wears off.

As most of their drops are either stackable or noted, it is recommended to pick up most of them. Gorajo mushrooms should be left on the ground since they are relatively cheap and have no demand.
