    Hello everyone,

    I often get asked questions about how to kill the Bandos Avatar to get the kraken tentacle (tentacle whip) drop.
    So to help you all, a small guide on how to kill it effectively.

    Basic info and how to get there

    The Bandos Avatar is a lvl 125 combat monster that inhabits its own cave.
    It is mainly hunted for the kraken tentacle, but also drops caskets containing enchanted stones (5 per casket) to imbue rings.

    It utilizes all 3 combat spells, as well as magic that cannot be protected against. During the battle it will also spawn 2 waves of minions.

    To access the cave you can type ::bavatar.

    Gear and inventory set-up

    The inventory is pretty much the same for every style of gear.
    Note that meleeing is also possible, but I just prefer range.

    Pretty self-explanatory, the extreme ranging potion can be substituted with a normal one if you want.
    I use manta's because they're fairly cheap & a few pray restores for when you run out of prayer, obviously :)

    Depends on what you can afford, void is fine really, because there's still some chance for you to die and void protects anyway.

    Battle tactics

    Activate protect from missiles/eagle eye (or deflect missiles/leech ranged/leech defence) and type ::bavatar.

    Upon entering the cave, attack the Bandos Avatar and lure it towards the southeast corner. Keep ranging it.

    When he hits around 75% hitpoints, he will spawn a first wave of minions.
    They shouldn't be able to attack you if you are in the southeast corner. After 20 seconds these minions will explode, dealing massive damage (first wave can be tanked, but not advised). Just teleport out before they do, and teleport back in.
    Attack the Bandos Avatar again, luring it to the southeast, as you did for the first wave.
    A second minion wave will spawn, attacking you and also exploding after 20 seconds. Tanking this wave is a lot trickier and can fail, even when you are at 150+hp. Just teleport out and back in again to finish the Avatar.

    Final words

    Congrats, you have defeated yet another boss in our server. All that's left for me is to wish you all good luck!
    Also thanks to @rggranny for helping out, it's appreciated ;)

    Kind regards

    Trist

    Haha it was actually kinda fun figuring out how this boss actually works.
    It's good that we're getting guides for most bosses. I'll see if i can fill up some of the remaining bosses that haven't been covered yet.
    HMU if you ever need any help.
