Dark totem detail.png

The dark totem is an item that can be created by combining the dark totem base, middle and top. All three components can be found by killing monsters (excluding ghosts) in the Catacombs of Kourend. An assembled dark totem can also be obtained from Skotizo. Players must assemble the totem if they wish to receive further totem pieces from monsters within the Catacombs. (However, you can acquire duplicate pieces by dropping a totem piece prior to dealing the final blow to a superior slayer monster).

The dark totem is used to access the lower level of the Catacombs of Kourend to fight Skotizo. Each totem gives a one-time only access to face it.

A player uses the dark totem on the Dark Altar in the centre of the Catacombs.

Assembling the dark totem results in a chatbox message stating You bring the totem pieces together with a click. It looks kind of like an arcane key and pulses with dark power in your hand.
