Dust Devils are found in two locations:

  • Catacombs of Kourend
  • Smoke Dungeon (from Desert Treasure)

Unless you are going to use a cannon, you should always kill them in the Catacombs of Kourend as that location is easier to access.

dust devils are located in the catacombs of kourend. You can get there using the xeric's heart teleport or the kourend castle teleport

You can get to the Catacombs of Kourend using a Kourend Castle Teleport which requires 66 Magic and 60% Arceuus Favour.

Alternatively, you can use the Xeric’s Heart Teleport on your Xeric’s Talisman.

Finally, you can use the Kourend Castle Teleport from anyones P-O-H by going to World 330.

Since Dust Devils have no magic defence, you can wear proselyte armour for its prayer bonus and still hit like a truck.

Only players with access to max mage gear (Ancestral) should wear that.

Bringing anything lower than that such as Mystic or Ahrims will give diminishing returns as you’ll be blowing through prayer potions.

In order to burst Dust Devils, you will need to have a fast ranged weapon (e.g. darts) to aggro the dust devils on you.

Then you will go to one of the corners and run left to right until they are all stacked on each other.

Once stacked, burst or barrage them on autocast.

Rinse and repeat!
