Bloodveld are Slayer monsters requiring level 50 Slayer to kill. Aside from Slayer tasks, bloodveld are sometimes killed for their favourable green charm drop rate, otherwise they are rarely killed off-task.

Their appearance changed upon release of the Smoking Kills quest on 5 June 2008 and again in August 2014.

Locations[edit | edit source]

God Wars Dungeon[edit | edit source]

The God Wars Dungeon is usually not a recommended place to kill bloodveld. There are 3 close together near the Zamorak entrance area and 4 close together in the Zamorak area. You also need God-related items to protect yourself from them and other monsters. There are always spiritual warriors and spiritual mages killing Zamorakians outside of the entrance. The nearest bank is in Burthorpe. Although slower to kill, bloodveld give significantly more slayer xp per kill at the God Wars Dungeon. A portion of the Troll Stronghold quest must be partially completed to access this area.

Bloodvelds in the God Wars Dungeon will not be aggressive if a player is wearing a Zamorakian item or the Shard of Zaros.

Slayer Tower[edit | edit source]

The Slayer Tower is a popular choice for those who have not completed Legacy of Seergaze. There are several bloodveld spawns on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the tower, in the south-west corner. The nearest bank is Canifis. Bloodveld here cannot be cannoned.

The level 61 bloodveld will give 37 Slayer experience on a normal contract and 44 experience on a special contract, while the level 68 bloodveld will give 84 experience on contract and 101 experience on a special contract.

Meiyerditch Laboratories[edit | edit source]

The Meiyerditch Laboratories are an alternative place to kill bloodveld, however mutated bloodveld, a stronger variant, can also be found here along with regular bloodveld. Because of this, the regular bloodveld are usually ignored. In the regular bloodveld room, be mindful that skeletal hands or zombie hands may drop from the ceiling or appear from the ground. Teleport to the Meiyerditch Laboratories using Drakan's medallion and run through the passage to the bloodveld spawns. A mask of Crimson, helm of Blood, mask of Broken Fingers, or helm of the Dead Hand can also be used to teleport there. The ones found here are weak to fire spells.

Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 16 January 2017 (Update):
    • Bloodvelds are now all melee-based and weak to fire spells.
  • patch 18 August 2014 (Update):
    • Bloodvelds in the Slayer Tower, Godwards[sic] and Morytania's Underground have now had their models updated.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bloodveld are loyal to Zamorak, as shown in the God Wars Dungeon and Heart of Gielinor.
  • The examine text of bloodveld is similar to the examine text of the dust devil, basilisk, and rockslug. The bloodveld is "the tongue of evil", the dust devil is "the vacuumed face of evil", the basilisk is "the eyes of evil" and the rockslug "the slime of evil."
  • The bloodveld seems to attack twice in a row but it only attacks once, as seen on the hitsplats.
  • Vampyres keep bloodveld as pets, in a similar fashion to the way in which humans keep dogs. Harold, who belongs to Vanstrom Klause is one example, as are Grigan Kaninus' bloodveld younglings.
  • In the Postbag from the Hedge 12, their tongues are likened to that of KISS bassist Gene Simmons, a rock star who himself has an unusually long tongue.
  • On 16 January 2017, their attack style and weakness were changed from magic and thrown weapons to melee and fire spells, respectively.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 80,366 kills.[1]
    • This had not increased by 6 May 2018.[2]
