The demon slayer effect is a group of buffs and debuffs that apply when fighting various demonic creatures.

Note that while they are all discussed on this page, weakness to silverlight/darklight, susceptibility to holy water, and other demon slayer effects are three separate groups and may apply to different monsters.

Demon slayer effect[edit | edit source]

These effects are all activated on the same monsters - see Category:Susceptible to demon slayer for the full list.

Demon Slayer perk[edit | edit source]

Main article: Demon Slayer (perk)

The Demon Slayer perk can be applied to any augmented armour or weapon. It simply increases all damage done to demons by 7%.

Demon Bait perk[edit | edit source]

Main article: Demon Bait

Converse to the Demon Slayer perk, the Demon Bait perk can be applied to any augmented armour or weapon, and is generally considered to be a negative perk. It increases all damage done to the user by demons by 30%.

Demon slayer ability[edit | edit source]

The demon slayer Demon Slayer ability is an ability that increases all damage done to demons by 15% for 10 seconds when activated.

Demon slayer equipment[edit | edit source]

Demon slayer equipment is a set of ranged equipment that includes tier 60 ranged power armour and tier 57 dual-weild crossbows. It has additional bonuses against demons:

  • Each piece increases all damage done by the user to demons by 4% (to +20% for the armour only and +28% including weapons)
  • Each piece increases combat experience from demons by 2% (to +10% for the armour and +14% including weapons)
  • If on a relevant Slayer task, each piece increases Slayer experience earned from demons by 1%, with an additional 1% set bonus for wearing all 7 pieces (to +5% for the armour and +8% including weapons)

The effects of demon slayer equipment apply to all styles, regardless of weapon used - but as it is ranged armour, one will suffer accuracy penalties when using melee or magic with the set. Sufficiently high level weapons can overcome this, though.

Silverlight and Darklight[edit | edit source]

Main articles: Silverlight and Darklight

Silverlight and Darklight have several major effects while fighting demons:

  • Increased overall damage scaling with the user's Attack and Strength levels, and the target's Defence level (×1.25-2.24)
  • Increased hit chance (+20%)
  • Will use the weakness affinity of the target, rather than melee affinity

Darklight can be upgraded by completing Dimension of Disaster, which increases the hit chance to +30% and the damage multiplier to (×1.5-2.49).

The upgraded Darklight in particular is very potent, especially when combined with a strong off-hand weapon like an off-hand drygore mace and power armour.

Holy water[edit | edit source]

Main article: Holy water

Holy water provides a large hit chance increase against a number of demonic monsters (the same monsters that are affected by Silverlight). It provides an additional damage increase against a smaller number of demons, primarily variants of lesser demons, greater demons, and black demons.
