OSRS Kraken Guide

Today we are going to talk about OSRS Kraken boss which is a level 291 sea monster and it’s a larger version of the cave Kraken, and it is the only monster that drops the Trident of the seas and Kraken tentacle. There is only one spawn of the Kraken boss per world but you have the option of creating an instance, where you can kill OSRS Kraken regardless of the world. 

There are some requirements that you need to have to be able to kill OSRS Kraken and we are going to talk about that in this article. Also, I’m going to tell you how to kill the Kraken boss and everything else you need to know about him.

Requirements to beat the Kraken Boss OSRS

For OSRS Kraken you need minimum level 87 Slayer to kill him, you must be on the Slayer task to kill OSRS Kraken and you need to have at least 50 magic to have OSRS Kraken as a task. But it will be best if you have 75 magic or higher to equip the correct staves. 

Location of the Kraken OSRS

The Kraken is located in the Kraken Cove, you can get there by using Piscatoris teleport scroll. After that, the teleport will take you just outside of the Piscatora fishing colony, head southwest until you reach the Kraken Cove. When you enter the Kraken cove go straight north to where you will find the Kraken boss lair.

Creating a Kraken Instance

You can create a Kraken instance but you have to pay 25,000 coins, you don’t need to carry coins on you to create the instance. The advantage of this instance is that dropped items stay on the ground for a longer period of time. Normally, items disappear after two minutes upon being dropped and other players can see it after one minute. 

But this is not an issue if instancing, because the dropped items disappear in 30 minutes within the Kraken Cove instance. As the Kraken regularly drops a generous amount of food in the form of 5 edible seaweed or 5 sharks, the instance makes it a lot easier for the player to juggle these food sources before they disappear. 

When you create an instance it will last until you leave or logs out. This means if you die the instance will collapse, and you will lose all the items upon death, so an emergency teleport is highly recommended. 

Equipment and Food

Slayer helmet, Occult necklace, Imbued god cape, Ancestral robe top, Ancestral robe bottom, Harmonised nightmare staff In combination with Fire Surge and tome of fire, Elysian spirit shield, Kebbit bolts If you are using the Hunters’ crossbow to disturb the Enormous Tentacles otherwise Rada’s blessing 4 or God blessing.

What Should You Do When Fighting The Kraken

For OSRS Kraken you should use Magic attack style to fight him because he is highly resistant to Ranged and immune to Melee since he cannot be reached by Melee attacks. 

To disturb OSRS Kraken and start the fight you must attack the four small whirlpools and then attack the central larger whirlpool. The smaller whirlpools will change into four enormous tentacles, and then the central whirlpool will change into the Kraken itself.

Through the fight, you will be attacked by the four enormous tentacles and by the OSRS Kraken. He will attack you with a typeless magical ranged attack, which means that protection prayers will not have any effect.

The max hit of this attack is 28, and they are not very accurate. But the speed of the Kraken attacks is about every 2.4 seconds and the same can be said about the Kraken’s enormous tentacles. 

Everyone that brings an imbued heart should pray Preserve. But if you have low Magic and/or Defence you may consider praying Augury or Mystic Might to increase your magical defense. 


This is all about the Kraken boss. I hope that this guide was useful to you, the Kraken is a very popular quest so be careful. That is why so many people choose to make-instance for the OSRS Kraken boss. I wish you a good day and good luck with the Kraken. He is not that strong as you may think.
