This profit rate assumes 35 kills per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed and luck. Note Cerberus can only be killed on a Slayer task.

See the Cerberus article and the strategy guide for additional information.

Cerberus is the only monster to drop Primordial crystals, Pegasian crystals, and Eternal crystals. These are required to make the three best-in-slot Melee, Ranged, and Magic items: Primordial boots, Pegasian boots, and Eternal boots. These rare (1/512 chance) yet valuable crystals (Primordial crystals are worth 34,943,796) make the average Cerberus kill worth 102,394. However, while average profit per hour may be high, actual profit per hour at Cerberus depends greatly on whether unique drops are received. Players may experience dry streaks of 10-20 hours without receiving a valuable crystal. If the player does not receive unique crystals, the average kill is worth only 24,918 and the baseline profit is much lower at about 447,918 per hour. For this reason, players seeking consistent profit often prefer to kill other bosses such as Zulrah.

Cerberus can only be killed while on a Slayer task. The best Slayer master to get Cerberus tasks from is Duradel who assigns tasks of 130-200 Hellhounds. Players wishing to extend the task may use bracelets of slaughter, preferably by switching to it at the end of each kill to get the benefit from other gloves for most of the kill.
