The Catacombs are located beneath Kourend. There is five entrances that players can use as seen in the map below, highlighted with the green pins. The fastest method of reaching the Catacombs is to use Xeric’s talisman and teleport to “Xeric’s Heart”. Although this method requires the Kourend Castle teleport to be unlocked prior. A portal chamber or portal nexus in the PoH with a Kourend Castle teleport also works.

Beneath the Catacombs Altar

Monsters within the Catacombs will drop dark totem pieces as you kill them as an uncommon drop. Once you have collected and assembled three individual pieces into a complete dark totem, you are eligible to fight Skotizo, a demi-boss located beneath the Catacombs. To fight him players will need to take the dark totem and use it on the altar in the centre of the Catacombs. You can check out our Skotizo guide to see how to defeat this demi-boss.
