ED3 RS3 Bosses-
- Taraket the Necromancer
Taraket the Necromancer is encountered at level 1000. He is the second Boss to show up in the dungeon. Its attack is aggressive yet more dangerous than the Crassian Leviathan’s. Taraket the Necromancer comes with magical powers, due to which they possess powers to summon the Zombies, Skeletons and other dead creatures. Only when you destroy the Boss is when the summons will stop showing up. Even after killing the boss, you will encounter a couple more mobs and minibosses on your way ahead.
- The Crassian Leviathan
Crassian Leviathan is encountered at level 1500. He is the first Boss to show up in the dungeon. Its attack is both aggressive and poisonous in nature. Although dealing with Crassian Leviathan is simple, all you have to do is dodge its attack by shifting to the opposite side of the attack as soon as possible. His attack involves spitting green goo, your only defence mechanism is to be quick and shift to a side. After killing the Crassian Leviathan enter the hole on the ship and head ahead. Even after killing the boss, you will encounter a couple more mobs and minibosses on your way ahead.
- Kranon The Ambassador
Kranon The Ambassador is the final boss to show up in the dungeon and is encountered at level 5000. In order to capture Xau-Tak this boss allies with the rest. Dragonkin by race, this boss performs three major moves, if you surpass these you will reach the end.
