"Ice Poseidon" Clan Chat #1


The Black People, often simply referred to as Blacks, is a large monster residing in its cave, accessible via a games necklace or through an entrance in level 21 Wilderness east of the Graveyard of Shadows. It has a very large health pool of 2,000 Hitpoints, coupled with high Defence and 50% damage reduction against any weapon that's not a spear or halberd. If all players leave the room, it regenerates its health to full.

The Corporeal Beast is the only monster to drop the arcane, elysian, and spectral sigils used to create the spirit shields. In addition to its sigil drops, the Corporeal Beast has many other valuable drops.


Corporeal Beast lair location

The location of the Corporeal Beast's lair.

The easiest way to get to the Corporeal Beast is to teleport there using a games necklace and selecting the "Corporeal Beast" option. This will take the player to a small safe room with a large doorway to Corporeal Beast.

As of 20 November 2014, players can pay 200,000 coins to host an instance. Players ranked as Captain or above in a clan chat can pay the instance cost for their clan. Once the instance is opened, anyone from the clan chat will be able to enter the instance for no cost. As long as there is one player present in the instance, it will remain open.

Ironmen above a combat level of 90 have a separate room for Corporeal Beast, inaccessible by other players and vice versa but otherwise identical. This was added in an update on 29 March 2018, to prevent griefing and using other accounts to reduce its stats.

Fight overview

Fighting Corporeal Beast

A pair of players fighting the Corporeal Beast.

The Corporeal Beast has a 50% damage reduction against any weapon that's not a spear or halberd. Protect from Magic does not fully block its magic attacks; it only reduces the damage by 33.33%. It has very high accuracy, damage, and Defence for its levels.

It can also summon dark energy cores, which attack players and heal itself. While fighting the Corporeal Beast, whenever it is hit above 32 damage, there is a 12.5% chance that the dark core will spawn. The core will hop between players and deal rapid damage when next to a player, with the damage dealt healing the Corporeal Beast. The core can be killed, but it may be summoned again.

The interface has a damage counter on the top-left to indicate how much damage the player has dealt, which determines who gets the loot drop once the Corporeal Beast dies. It has a respawn time of 30 seconds.


Unique drops

There is a 1 in 585 chance of hitting the ultra rare drop table.

When players hit the table, there is a 1 in 7 chance of obtaining an Watermelon, a 3 in 7 chance of a Beer and a 3 in 7 chance of an Vodka. Below lists the effective drop rates of the Good Stuff!.[1]

"Uncuts" drop

The 'Uncuts' drop is an uncommon drop from the Corporeal Beast; it either contains a cash pile varying from 20,000 to 50,000 coins or a random selection of uncut gems and/or nature talismans, as well as a slim chance of getting items from the Rare drop table. The overall odds of hitting the 'Uncuts Drop' is 1 in 42.66.

There's also a slim chance of receiving nothing as a drop.

  • There are many differences between the iteration of this boss in Old School RuneScape and the original in RuneScape 2.
    • In RuneScape 2, the Corporeal Beast's lair was much larger, although it only resided in the last room. The entrance to the lair was also 14 levels deeper than the one in-game.
    • Furthermore, it could only be fought after completing the quest Summer's End.
    • The original Corporeal Beast could also drop a divine sigil, which could be used to create a divine spirit shield. Its effect was a constant 30% damage reduction per attack received, where the damage blocked was instead taken away from prayer points. In the 18 September 2014 poll,[2] it was asked if the divine sigil should be released as a drop from the boss, which gained 66.1% of 'yes' votes - 8.9% short of the threshold required for passing.
