Slayer helms are pieces of head-slot Slayer equipment that can be obtained by upgrading their respective Slayer masks, which are obtained as a reward from Treasure Hunter or purchased from the Shattered Worlds reward shop.
Slayer helms were released in two "waves"; the first set of helms allows a player to force a Slayer task of that creature once a day, and the second every three days. Using "Check Kills" on masks and helms with three-day cooldowns will display the time left until the task can be forced again.
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Slayer helms are obtained after killing a certain number of monsters while wearing the relevant slayer mask. The helm has similar benefits to the mask, but does not provide bonus XP, extra damage, or double drops. After the helm version has been unlocked, the player is free to switch between it and the mask version, as a cosmetic preference only – this does not restore the Slayer experience and double drop effects to the mask. A Spirit of Battle is the only way to reset a helm back to a mask and re-enable the mask's benefits.
Helms still allow a player to force the next Slayer task to be a certain monster, provided they are at the appropriate Slayer Master. They also still provide free teleports to that monster's locations (most provide two teleports daily).
The mask's kill count carries over to the helm and continues to be tracked, up to 999,999 kills. A right-click option announces total kills of that creature. The announcement of total kills is not seen in the chat bar but is seen above your character by those around you.
If attempting to use a slayer helm for a blocked task, the game will inform you of this and ask you to confirm you want it anyway. However, if you attempt to use the Helm of the Aquanites at Kuradal or Morvran while aquanites are toggled off in the Slayer Master rewards menu, the Slayer Master will automatically give you a random task without confirming you wanted one. This problem does not occur when seeking an assignment from Sumona, Duradel, or Lapalok, as they assign them normally, without having to toggle the assignment.
