Cerberus (aka baby girl)
This is a guide on how I conquered this three-headed beast. You can kill her with Melee or Range
Cerberus is a high level Slayer boss. A slayer level of 91 is required to inflict damage and a slayer task of Cerberus or hellhounds. I recommend killing Cerberus while on a Hellhound slayer task.
It is the only monster to drop Primordial, Eternal and Pegasian crystals, which can be used on the Dragon boots, Infinity boots, and Ranger boots. respectively, providing best-in-slot boots for Melee (the Primordial boots), Magic (the Eternal boots), and Ranged (Pegasian boots).
In addition, she can also drop a Smouldering stone, which when combined with a dragon axe, pickaxe, or harpoon to turn them into their infernal forms; the infernal axe, pickaxe, and harpoon.
70+ Strength (85+ is recommended)
70+ Prayer (70 Piety or 74 for Rigour)
This is what your inventory should look like: (bring a Spec weapon such as any God Sword or D claws) You don't necessarily have to use a spec weapon as I don't shown in the video. It just knocks down her health faster. I usually bring 4-6 Prayer pots or Super restores and 2 Super combat potions. The rest of your inventory you can fill with Sharks or Angler fish.
Same inventory as Melee, but with Range pots or Bastion pots, and a Toxic Blowpipe.

Cerberus has 3 attacks.
She'll attack with all combat styles. Mage, Range, and Melee.
Mage - Her attack looks like an orb and she'll stand on her back two feet. it's an obvious attack.
Ranged - Cerby will lunge at you which will indicate it will either be a range or melee attack. The attack looks like some sort of spikey ball (please forgive my explanations i'm trying my best :P) and she stands still.
Melee - The melee attack animation is similar to the ranged attack; Except no projectiles comes out. I can't predict when she does her Melee attacks so i just tank those attacks with food. She'll sometimes hit you with melee attacks more than once, so you might want to be careful on that.
If Cerberus is below 400 HP, she'll occasionally howl Aaarrroooooo!
When she does that 3 Summoned Souls will spawn from behind the skull and attack in a left to right direction.
Each Soul will hit you with a 30. or pray according to their combat style colour:
Blue is magic
Red is melee
Green is ranged
The summoned souls will always spawn in a random order. So don't expect it will be the same order as last time. You should have at least 65+ Health whenever they appear as it is easy to get combo'd by the Spirits and Cerby's attacks.
*NOTE: As soon as the spirits animation starts pray to the correct combat style.*
If you're more of a visual learner, here's a video of me killing Cerberus.
I hope this guide helped you in any way and I wish everyone the best of luck farming for the crystals! 🙂
