Old School RuneScape Adds The Long-Awaited Tempoross Fishing Skill Boss

Tempoross has finally surfaced in Old School RuneScape, giving you a new way to level up your Fishing skill. The watery boss will be available to all members with at least level 35 Fishing and can be found by traveling to the Sea Spirit Dock just south of Al Kharid.

Tempoross in OSRS is meant to provide an “accessible, social encounter as an alternative to the current hands-off leveling methods,” according to Jagex. “You can tackle the Spirit of the Sea on your own or in a group, as Tempoross will scale to your team’s size. This encounter complements existing Fishing methods and the current meta, and is not a replacement.”

Fishing XP will scale based on your level, with players between 35-70 finding some of the best XP return rates in the game. The only downside? You won’t be catching much fish – and fighting Tempoross is much more labor-intensive than some other AFK methods. Here’s a quick breakdown of the expected XP gains:

  • 35 Fishing: 30,000 XP per hour
  • 70 Fishing: 70,000 XP per hour
  • 99 Fishing: 80,000 XP per hour

Jagex announced it will be listening to feedback about the XP rates and is open to adjusting those numbers as needed.

Tempoross OSRS Rewards

While you might not land as many fish while fighting Tempoross, there are several great rewards you can walk away with:

  • Fish Barrel: Store a total of 28 raw fish of multiple species. Combine the Fish Barrel with the Fish Sack to create an equipable version that can be worn in the cape slot. The Fish Sack can be purchased from Alry the Angler on Molch Island for 1,000 molch pearls.
  • Tackle Box: Provides additional storage for fishing equipment such as rods, feathers, and bait.
  • Spirit Angler’s Outfit Style: Combine Spirit Flakes with the Angler’s Outfit to change it into the Spirit Angler’s Outfit. This shares the same stats as the Angler’s outfit but comes with a flash new design.

There are several other rewards for battling Tempoross, so check out the official OSRS website to learn more.

Tempoross is now available in OSRS for all members with at least a 35 Fishing level.
