Corrupted slayer helmet detail.png

The corrupted slayer helmet is a tier 85 slayer helmet requiring level 70 Defence to equip. It is made by upgrading a mighty slayer helmet for 1,000 Slayer points and a corrupted gem at any Slayer Master, although subsequent upgrades will only cost 100 Slayer points. The mighty slayer helmet must be worn, and the corrupted gem must be in the inventory for the upgrade to work.

The slayer helmet is an all-class item, which means its armour stat is used in full when defending against any style. It has the same base stats as a Refined anima core helm of Sliske, another tier 85 hybrid helm. It can also be used as an enchanted gem.

For 500 Slayer points (or 50 Slayer points any time after first purchased), players can learn how to fuse rings of slaying and ferocious rings to full slayer helmets, gaining some of the benefits of both—teleports and the 4% damage boost in Kuradal's Dungeon from the ferocious ring but without the ring of life property.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Effects[edit | edit source]

The corrupted slayer helmet combines the effects of several pieces of head slot Slayer equipment, all of which are required to create it:

The helmet retains the abilities of all the items used to make it. It still gives the effects that the black mask, hexcrest, and focus sight do, but with better defence and bonuses, making it one of the best helms for Slayer assignments. If the black mask still has charges, they must first be expended.

With the addition of Anachronia, a corrupted slayer helmet can be placed on the Slayer helmet stand of a Tier 3 Slayer Lodge. This allows the player to have the effects of the slayer helmet at all times, without needing to wear it.

  • The player does not get the armour, PvP damage reduction, ferocious ring effects or teleports, ring of slaying teleports or access to the Slayer codex, regardless of unlocks or helmet tier. These effects are obtained only by wearing the helmet.

Recolouring[edit | edit source]

For 4,000 Loyalty points, players can buy the ability to change the colour of their slayer helmet, and this works for all variations of slayer helmets except the most basic slayer helmet. By using the helmet on Xuan, Dilwyn, or Wafa, it can be recoloured to the colours blue, yellow, red, and green. Recolouring the full slayer helmet also changes the colour of the backplate to pastel pink. This ability cannot be refunded, but once bought, players can change the colour of their helmet as many times as they like. The pink backplate can only be removed/changed by reverting to the original colour. The four versions are:
