Players will sometimes deplete their life points for the purpose of either intentionally dying or increasing the effect of Dharok's special. The most obvious way of depleting one's health is fighting monsters; however, many players use safer, controlled, faster, and more effective methods of depleting health, most of which can be done anywhere on RuneScape.

Sometimes players commit "suicide" as a way to regain lowered stats or remove the Skull (status). One effective way of doing so for members with at least 57 Woodcutting is to use the free teleport to Lumbridge, put everything in the bank, cut a Waka canoe and ride it to the Wilderness, and go north-west to attack a Green dragon, which should provide a quick death. Alternatively, dying in a safe minigame or in the dungeon of one's Memory strand

In members world you can teleport to the fight cauldron, stand on the lava where your player can die. Alternatively, by using Memory strand to teleport to Memorial to Guthix site, you can bank and run north fighting airuts which deal very quick damage.

Safe activities do not require suicide to prevent losing any item when playing them. The skull is not removed when dying there but doing these activities may regain lowered stats.
