When fighting, it is recommended to use melee armour, bring good food, and pray against range. At high levels it is possible to stay for long periods of time with good food. It may be advisable to use Soul Split or bring a team with you to distribute the damage taken. Intelligent strategies, and careful selection of gear and abilities are a must if a player wishes to stay for more than a few minutes at a time.
Indeed, the number of attacks aimed at a player often seem to overload the server. At times, this will prevent players from picking up items from the floor, or prevent them from moving. 1-click teleports will still work in these situations, which makes it a good idea to carry one here.
Unlike the dagannoth found in other locations, the dagannoth here do not drop hides of any variety. Hide hunters will need to go to either the Chaos Tunnels or Waterbirth Island. These dagannoth are good for rushing a slayer task or if collecting Gold charms. Crimson charm collectors will have better luck at the Chaos Tunnels or Waterbirth Island.
A good strategy is to use a Saradomin God Sword, melee armour and pray against Range. With the saradomin god sword you can maintain your health and pray without food or potions. To make a slayer task go by quickly you can take a cannon with you as well.
It is strongly advised to pray against Range, as it seems to reduce the max hit of their ranged attacks to 1.
