Xarpus is the fifth encounter in the Theatre of Blood.

Fight Strategy

Xarpus has three phases:

  • Recovery (Phase 1): Severely weakened, Xarpus will channel the energy of the ground by exhuming a total of 25 skeletons to heal him for rapid bits of 6 health per tick for 15 ticks. This can be temporarily halted by standing on top of the exhumed remains.
  • Poison (Phase 2): Xarpus starts attacking the players after enough time has passed from phase 1 and starts off with the amount of health he had starting from phase 1. He will launch poison at players which lightly damages anyone in a 3×3 grid centred around the player Xarpus was focusing. This poison then occupies that tile for the rest of the fight and deals 6-8 damage each tick a player stands on or crosses over it. Skipping over a poisoned tile will deal a delayed hit.
  • Counter (Phase 3): Xarpus screeches once lowered below 33% of his health after healing and stops launching poison around the arena, instead staring intently at one quadrant at a time. If a player attacks him from the area Xarpus is looking at, he will retaliate with a poison attack that deals 50-80 damage per hit.


Xarpus is located in the fifth room of the Theatre of Blood.
