Zulrah is a high level boss that requires relatively high combat stats and equipment to kill. Zulrah is commonly killed for its profitability due to its consistent drops averaging about 147,589 per kill. At higher levels, it is possible to maintain 24 kills per hour with high concentration or using a Twisted Bow as the primary weapon, at an average of two minutes per kill and approximately 30 seconds of banking, which in turn, increases gp per hour to about 3,542,151 (not including cost of supplies). With maximum stats and gear, upwards of 32 kills per hour can be achieved, resulting in 4,722,868 gp per hour before supplies.

Typical gear includes the use of Void Knight equipment especially when ranging. Ahrim's robes prove to be better than Void mage due to Ahrim's higher magical accuracy. However, void mage will suffice and are recommended to those who wish to switch less between gear during the fight.

Basic strategy
  • When Zulrah is green, it attacks with Ranged, spreads toxic fumes over the area, and spawns snakelings who appear in the arena via white orbs. They have 1 Hitpoint but can deal heavy and accurate damage. Pray Protect from missiles overhead.png.
  • When Zulrah is turquoise, it attacks with Magic and Ranged, spreads toxic fumes, and spawns snakelings. Pray Protect from magic overhead.png.
  • When Zulrah is crimson, it attacks at the player's recent spot. If they are caught by the Melee attack, they will also be stunned. Prayer is not required when Zulrah is in its crimson form.

Towards the end of each attack pattern, Zulrah alternates between Magic and Ranged attacks (colloquially known as the Jad phase). Alternate between Protect from magic overhead.png and Protect from missiles overhead.png prayers.
