Invasion plans
This article is a strategy guide for Lesser demon.
Information on mechanics, setups, and tactics is on this page.

This guide explains how to train on Lesser demons using F2P items and at F2P locations.


A rapid way to kill demons and bank their drops or pick up food is to use the explorer's ring 3. Cabbage-port, run to the pier, go to the Karamja dungeon, kill demons, cabbage-port when you have enough, and deposit the drops at the deposit box near the Entrana ship or pick up food at the Draynor bank. The ring will double up as an emergency teleport as its animation is unhindered by attacks.

It is useful to have food on you while training, as lesser demons can land a hit up to 220 as well as magic is strong against melee in the combat triangle. Whenever out of food, the player should go to the fishing pier on the north-eastern part of the island and fish either lobsters or swordfish.

If you decide going to Wilderness Volcano, head to the former Bounty Hunter volcano. Go a little north, past the greater demons, ankous, and hellhounds. Players venturing there may want to be aware of the PKers in the wilderness.

The safe spot no longer works as lesser demons are now able to utilise magic attacks on unreachable targets. The lesser demons however, are weak to ranged attacks, especially crossbow bolts. However, players are highly advised to use the strongest possible arrows that the player can afford in bulk for training purposes. When killing lesser demons, players should cycle Ranged abilities to maximise DPS, and to utilise Deadshot and Rejuvenation whenever possible.

Go to a bank and get the above supplies and armour. Home teleport to Port Sarim, walk east, take the ship to Karamja, walk west to the Karamja Volcano, and enter the Karamja Volcano dungeon. Stand in the centre of the 6 lesser demons in the Karamja Volcano dungeon or the 6+ lesser demons in the Karamja Volcano resource dungeon (level 25 Dungeoneering required). Hop worlds if there are other players. (At higher Magic levels, you may be able to kill all 6 at once.) Switch to your primary weapon and take a sip of your magic potion and defence potion.

Attack the lesser demons with your abilities as follows:

After each kill, immediately attack the next lesser demon and do NOT wait for the items dropped by the lesser demons to appear. The following should be done only in between attacks while you are fighting the lesser demons:

  • Run towards and loot drops - coins and accursed ashes are extremely common drops so taking all of them may reduce experience
  • Cast high level alchemy on the item you brought specifically for this purpose - if done the whole time, this increases your experience rate by approximately 40,000 experience per hour, however it is very intensive training

As you kill the lesser demons, the accursed urns will automatically collect the accursed ashes. If you brought 1 of them, they will give 4875 Prayer experience, given you kill at least 350 lesser demons, which should be possible in 1 hour with 90+ Magic. Only 10 full prayer urns can be held in your inventory at once, so teleport them away after you fill up 10. Training prayer by collecting and scattering the accursed ashes is not advised as it will lower Magic experience per hour.

Advantages and disadvantagesEdit


  • Lesser demons are weak against Ranged attacks, and can average 15–20 seconds per kill with a decent Ranged set-up.
  • Drop rune helms, which give 11,520 gold when High Level Alchemy is cast on it.
  • Due to an update you may also use demon's ashes to train prayer meanwhile.


  • Lesser demons have 5000 life points, making them tedious to kill in order to get the experience.
  • Often, in the Karamja volcano and in the wilderness volcano (on worlds with a lot of people), the lesser demons are crowded, making killing more competitive.
