    Corporeal Beast is a medium level boss with some drops that are very important to a functioning economy. Using this guide, it is possible to stay at Corp for multiple hours at a time.

    A big thanks to @Mautaz for being my duo partner for the screenshots :awesome: 

    Corporeal Beast's Drops: (and what to do with them)
    The Corporeal Beast drops the four sigls, as well as spirit shields and holy elixir. These are the three components necessary to build the divine spirit shield, elysian spirit shield, arcane spirit shield, and spectral spirit shield. If a normal spirit shield is used on an altar with holy elixir in the player's inventory, they will be combined to form a blessed spirit shield. If a sigil of any kind is used on an anvil with a blessed spirit shield in the player's inventory, then the sigil is attached to that shield.

    Prerequisites:
    None, but completion of the Dwarf Cannon Quest is highly recommended.
    Access to the prestige 9 island is helpful, but far from necessary.

    Gear:

    It will be possible to kill the Corporeal Beast with any of the above gear. However, higher leveled gear is more effective.
    For those of you who are probably wondering, my use of an elysian spirit shield rather than a divine was intentional. The prayer draining effects of the divine shorten the length of each trip significantly by increasing the need for prayer restoration items.

    For more in-depth notes regarding item names, see the text notes at the end of this guide.


    Inventory:
    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/RoJ8yrL.png[/IMG]
    The inventories above are set up for the different gear options.
    Gear 1 & 2 = Inventory 1
    Gear 3 = Inventory 2
    Gear 4 = Inventory 3
    You may notice that the number of sanfew serums increases from left to right. This is because of the prayer bonuses that each gear set up gives. The higher gear set ups have enough prayer bonus to keep a player's prayer full with the use of pray renewals.
    In all of the inventory setups I included an enhanced excalibur (click for more information about it's effects). This will help to lengthen the trips significantly.
    I also included unicorn pouches. Players should have a unicorn summoned in addition to the extra pouches in their inventory.

    For more in-depth notes regarding item names, see the text notes at the end of this guide.


    Getting There:
    Before going to the Corporeal Beast, some players may find it useful to bonfire. There is a teleport to the Corporeal Beast ::home that can be accessed by talking to Ariane. After talking to Ariane, select the "bosses" option and navigate to the third page of boss teleports using the menu in the chat box. This teleport will bring you to the entrance of Corp's cave. Upon entering Corp's cave, a message box will appear on the screen (shown below). This message states that players will not receive a grave on death. If a player does happen to die, all of their items will immediately dropped on the ground.

    Fighting The Beast:
    There are two methods to fighting Corporeal Beast that I will explain here. The first method is for players wishing to solo, while the second method is for players who plan on a duo (or more). These methods are very similar, but there is a difference.

    Regardless of whether it is a solo or duo, the kill will take place in the northern part of Corp's cave. A diagram of the cave is shown below. The kill area is circled in green.
    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/02b3sVv.png?1[/IMG]
    One player will always place their cannon two squares south of the bottom of the northernmost grave. The exact spot is shown below.

    During the kill, the player who placed there cannon in the spot shown above will stand to the west of Corp.

    Players who are soloing should bring a second account to corp as well. This second account doesn't need to have gear, seeing as it will not take damage. However, this account does need a cannon. The second account increases the kill speed, but is mainly used to distract corp. The distraction of the second account allows for your main account to survive a lot longer with less damage taken. The second account will place it's cannon in the spot below, so that it can hide behind the grave and still reload during the kill.
    The noob's cannon will be placed on the square where my noob account is standing below (one square east of the top of the northern grave).

    And during the kill, the two accounts will be standing in these locations.

    In a duo, the second player will always stand to the east of corp during the kill. With the first player standing to the west of Corp, this results in as much time between Corp's attacks as possible. When there are two players, Corp spends a lot of his time turning back and forth between the two players and not as much time attacking.

    During the kill, the two players will stand in these locations.

    While waiting for Corp to spawn, it is very important that all players stand north of the northernmost gravestone. Because of the cannons, Corp will be pulled towards the grave when he spawns, putting him very close to the cannons. Standing behind the grave to wait for the spawn will result in much more damage against Corp from the cannons.
