The Slayer Masters are a group of individuals who offer Slayer assignments. They are members of the Order of the Slayer Masters, a group dedicated to the eradication of dangerous beasts. The Order was founded by Catolax and Faiza amongst others, who were taught how to slay such beasts by Amascut (in one of her multiple identities) to consume their souls. When the Order realised this, they made preparations to leave the Khardian Desert and spread the knowledge of Slayer. It is unknown how many members escaped the desert, but their plan was successful given the numerous Slayer masters found across Gielinor today.

Each Slayer Master takes in a disciple of their own and teaches them the art of slaying. This is also to ensure that if the master is preoccupied or killed, the disciple can give assignments in their place, as shown with Duradel and Lapalok where the latter temporary holds the position, only to be made permanent when Duradel is killed by Lucien.

The Slayer Masters differ in the difficulty and number of monsters they assign, as well as the number of Slayer points they offer. All standard Slayer Masters also sell useful Slayer equipment.

After Smoking Kills is completed, the completion of tasks from a standard Slayer Master starting after the fourth completed in a row will grant double Slayer points, excluding tasks assigned by Turael or Spria. If the quest has not been completed, the amount of points received will be half, rounded down.

Standard Slayer Masters[edit | edit source]

Turael/Spria[edit | edit source]

Turael chathead.png
The location of Turael/Spria.

Turael, and his daughter and replacement, Spria, are the easiest Slayer Masters. They have no minimum combat or Slayer level requirements before players may receive assignments.

They are located north of Burthorpe bank.

If a player receives an assignment they do not wish to do, both Turael and Spria may give an easier assignment if the player talks to them. This always works if the assignment is for a creature that isn't assigned by them, and will also work if the player is on a special Slayer challenge. Normally, Turael and Spria will not reassign a task if they can assign that creature themselves. For example, if Duradel assigned a player Desert lizards, then Turael/Spria may not change the task, as they too assign Desert lizards. However, if the number of creatures to be slain is far greater than what he would assign, it is possible that he will change the task. For example, if Duradel assigned 140+ Kalphites, then Turael/Spria will change this, as they would not assign that many to kill. In this case, Turael/Spria will give a new assignment, a new creature to slay or fewer of the same creature - its an entirely new drawing so you can receive the same monster. It is impossible for a player to get Turael/Spria to reassign a task that they gave out.

Slayer points[edit | edit source]

Completion of a task assigned by Turael/Spria will not grant any Slayer points nor will they count towards increasing your task total; replacing the task will actually reset the task total, but obtaining a new task while not assigned one by another Slayer Master will not.

Death/Frank runs the Soul Reaper D&D, assigning players a set number of boss monsters to kill on a daily basis. Players must have level 50 combat. These reward Reaper points, which increase or decrease in quantity depending upon several factors, such as the assignment, whether extended and/or group tasks are toggled, and the number of rerolls done. He assigns 1 task per day, but if "Additional Tasks" is purchased he can be paid 250 Slayer points to assign a new Soul Reaper task. During Missing, Presumed Death, Frank, one of Death's clan mates, takes over the Soul Reaper.

Erskine[edit | edit source]

Erskine chathead.png

Erskine is a warrior who offers Slayer contracts for creatures in the Wilderness. The contract offers 20% of the normal Slayer experience per kill. If the player is already on an applicable task, he offers special slayer contracts instead, offering an additional 20% Slayer experience per kill.

Ling[edit | edit source]

The player[edit | edit source]

Main article: Slayer Codex

Players can start the path to becoming their own Slayer Master by talking to Faiza in the Sunken Pyramid, requiring at least level 99 Slayer. The player needs to collect the soul of every Slayer creature, which requires level 117 Slayer to collect them all. However this can be boosted.

Former[edit | edit source]

Catolax[edit | edit source]

Catolax chathead.png

Catolax is a founder of the Order of the Slayer Masters and the husband of Faiza. He managed to anger Amascut, who slew him and bound his ghost to his tomb for millennia.

Faiza[edit | edit source]

Faiza chathead.png

Faiza is a founder of the Order of the Slayer Masters and the wife of Catolax. After Catolax was killed for angering Amascut, the goddess travelled to the Sunken Pyramid and killed Faiza, binding her ghost to the pyramid. She explains the history of the Slayer Masters and gives players with 99 Slayer the Slayer Codex and a number of ushabti, and allows them to personalise the Sunken Pyramid into their own Slayer dungeon.

The Raptor[edit | edit source]

Main article: Raptor's Challenge
The Raptor chathead.png

The Raptor briefly became a Slayer Master for the month of November 2015. During this time, he assigned players 1 task per day, which was counted separately from normal Slayer assignments. He had his own gem which could be used to contact him. Once the month was over, he moved on, finding being a Slayer Master boring.
