How to fight Hellhounds OSRS?
Hellhounds have a combat level of 122. Judging by this, they’re not exactly the easiest demons to fight. But, this level is most of their powerful and accurate attacks, but they have pretty low defense stats. It is recommended for players who don’t have a high defence level to put on their finest armor, as well as food items that heal quickly.
Hellhounds are only attacked with Melee so it’s a great idea to utilize Melee to protect yourself. Protect From Melee prayer, which can thwart their attacks. If you’re trying to be effective , yet remain as safe as you can you should visit the Catacombs located in Kourend. If you’ve accomplished a number of tasks in the Ardougne Diary, it is possible to travel onto Kandarin Monastery and recharge your Prayer points. Then you come back with the talisman of Xeric, if you’ve completed your Architectural Alliance or by using the Kourend Castle Teleport spell unlocking which requires 69 Magic and the ability to read Transportation incantations. Prayer-inducing armour is an absolute must also, particularly on long travels. Another option to revive some Prayer factors is to carry an osteocrusher along and bury some bones inside the Catacombs.
If you’ve packed a lot of food, and do not insist on the afk feature as much, prayer flicking can prove to be beneficial when taking on Hellhounds OSRS.

Hellhounds OSRS Slayer Guide
One of the oldest Slayer species in OSRS, Hellhounds are a great task for both high and low levels of players. Hellhounds are a fantastic source of Hard Clue Scrolls, and are pretty easy to kill. They can be found in a variety of locations that have distinct advantages.
Hellhounds can be seen almost everywhere which makes them a simple task for players of lower levels to finish. The higher levels may choose to battle the boss Cerberus to gain greater loot as well as Slayer encounters. The Skeletal Hellhounds created through the vet’ion boss also count towards your task.
The most convenient location to get access to Hellhounds quickly is in the Stronghold Slayer Cave, beside the Slayer Master Nieve. When you are inside, head down the south until reaching Hellhounds.
Being able to spot them is as easy as standing in the corridors around the Dungeon. I personally prefer standing in the area shown below since you can fight the Hellhounds in both areas, and neither one will be able to reach you.
Further Hellhounds can be seen throughout the Taverly Dungeon, Witchaven Dungeon, Karuulm Dungeon and Catacombs of Kourend. All of these locations are possible to spot with the help of objects in the room. There is a chance to put the cannon at any of these locations except the Catacombs that are located at Kourend.
They can be found in the Wilderness within the Revenant Caves, and in the higher elevation areas surrounding in the Deserted Keep and Resource Area. Keep in mind this is a dangerous place to complete your task, as all areas are situated quite deep in the Wilderness. Don’t bring anything you don’t wish to be able to lose!
Note that Revenant Hellhounds do not count towards your Slayer task.
Gear & Strategies
There are three main strategies that can be used to kill Hellhounds. It’s entirely dependent on what your strategy is. If you’re planning on using an area of safety to inflict no damage, you’ll need to use the Ranged setup. Magic could work as well, however Ranged is the best choice for this scenario. Bring your finest Ranged offensive armor, so you won’t be taking any injuries.
Cannoning Hellhounds will require that you apply the Protect from Melee prayer. Because of this, it’s recommended to make use of Prayer boosters. In general, Proselyte is sufficient. If you want some extra offensive benefit, swap the legs for a Verac’s Plateskirt. It offers a great prayer bonus in addition to boosting your attacking.
If you are not planning to use a safespot, and cannot afford to cannon or use prayers in the meantime, you’ll need to take along your most effective melee equipment. I suggest you pick the location closest to a bank if are on the lower end of the spectrum or have gear that isn’t up to par. You’ll likely have to replenish with food items quite often in this case.
Bonecrushers can be extremely beneficial for you if you train within the Catacombs located in Kourend. In the catacombs, placing bones in graves will replenish the prayer points. By bringing along a Bonecrusher as well as prayer boosting gear will allow for you to complete your task without having the use of Prayer potions.
