Nearby fairy rings include: BIQ, slightly south east of the entrance to the hive in the desert. Don't forget a rope to enter the lair.
AJQ, requires Death to the Dorgeshuun and a light source. The hive is through a door to the north west.
- Go into the Kalphite Hive which is a multicombat area
- Run around and hit each kalphite worker once so that they all follow you (do not worry, they won't stop following you)
- Once they all are collected run round a corner and into the middle of a corridor
- This causes the kalphite workers to form a queue, and only begin attacking you after the one before is dead
This allows for fairly easy and rapid completion of the relevant Slayer assignment.
Note: Poisoned weapons can be useful in step 2. Cheap ranged projectiles, such as bronze darts can also speed this up. By attacking the kalphite worker with the ranged weapon, your character has to run less to attract their attention.
See Picture for more details
Players who do not mind the cost can set up a cannon in the middle of the room for a fast Slayer task and xp.
Because they are relatively easy to kill, their inability to poison and the fact that a large number exist in one place, they are often used when kalphites are set as a task. However, they are not very good experience compared to their more dangerous counterparts.
Note: drops have changed with the Kalphite King release, and may be out of date.
