Top of sceptre detail.png

The top of sceptre is a piece of the skull sceptre that is dropped by catablepon in the third level of the Stronghold of Security, which is the dungeon beneath Barbarian Village, to the west of Varrock and east of the Dwarven Mine.

It is combined with the bottom of sceptre to get the runed sceptre.

Obtaining the Piece

Players who wish to kill catablepon to obtain their piece of the sceptre should know that it takes a while and that supplies to kill about 50-100 catablepon or so should be taken if the player wishes to obtain it in one trip. Keep in mind while preparing that the most devastating thing about them is not the damage they inflict, but the weakening spell they use, which drains strength by up to 15% of their opponent's maximum level. It would be advisable to bring a supply of strength potions to boost up your Strength and help counter-act this spell.

Wearing any part of the Varrock armour will slightly increase its drop rate.
