|Examine||Can be exchanged for rewards at any slayer master.|
|Infobox • Talk page|
Slayer points are a currency obtained by completing Slayer assignments or a special challenge from any Slayer Master bar Turael and Spria, or by trading in completed Tuska masks. The number rewarded depends on the Slayer Master, with the tougher masters awarding more points. Completion of Smoking Kills will double the value of the points received.
The maximum number of Slayer points a player can have at once is 64,000, however it is not a hard cap. If a player completes a task with 63,999 points they will receive the entirety of the points from that task and Tuska masks can still be traded in for 20 points each after the 64,000 points have been obtained.
Obtaining points[edit | edit source]
There are several ways of obtaining Slayer points: completing Slayer assignments, Slayer challenges, completing contracts on the Arc assigned by Ling, handing in completed Tuska masks, and opening the raptor chest.
Assignments[edit | edit source]
The points listed below are the full points per task, for which completion of the Smoking Kills quest is required. Before then, players will only receive half the listed points.
A minimum of five tasks must be completed before points are awarded. Every tenth task awards five times the value of the rewarded points, with every 50th awarding fifteen times the value of the points. Elite Karamja Tasks could boost the amount of slayer points a bit but depend on taking more tasks from Duradel or Lapalok which might not be recommended at higher Slayer levels. Changing tasks at Turael or Spria resets the number of completed tasks to 0.
|Slayer Master||Points per task||Points per 10th task||Points per 50th task||Notes|
|Turael or Spria||0||0||0||These Slayer masters will never award Slayer points and assignments will not contribute to completion streak. Cancelling a task to receive an easier one will reset the player's current completion streak to 0; However, completion streak will remain the same after accepting and completing a new task from these masters, as long as the previous task was completed and not cancelled.|
|Mazchna or Achtryn||2||10||30||Mazchna's tasks are easy and fast, and can be used to complete the first four tasks and quickly begin earning points.|
|Vannaka||4||20||60||Vannaka gives more experience per task than Mazchna or Achtryn.|
|Chaeldar||10||50||150||Chaeldar provides better experience and more Slayer points than Vannaka, despite taking longer to complete, as it can accumulate to more experience and points over a period of time.|
|Sumona||12||60||180||Sumona's tasks are very similar to Duradel's, though usually in lower quantities of monsters set. Sumona is best used by players who lack the combat and/or Slayer level to use Duradel.|
|Duradel or Lapalok||15||75 (80 after Elite Karamja Tasks)||225||These masters are recommended for point-earning tasks, due to the comparatively high number of points received upon completing their tasks.|
|Kuradal||18||90||270||Like Duradel or Lapalok, she is recommended for point-earning tasks, due to the comparatively high number of points received upon completing them. She requires 75 Slayer to use and should be used if the player cannot access Morvran.|
|Morvran||20||100||300||Like his predecessors listed above, he is recommended for point-earning tasks, due to the high number of points received from them. You should always use Morvran for point-earning tasks with 85 Slayer and completion of Plague's End unless wanting to risk wealth in the Wilderness.|
|Mandrith||20||100||300||He is also recommended for quick point-earning tasks, due to the high number of points received and the possibility of small and quick tasks. However he is a slayer master that only gives Wilderness Assignments so all tasks have to be undertook in the wilderness, therefore caution is advised.|
|Laniakea||22||110||330||Laniakea can assign "cluster tasks", which are groups of similar monsters designed to give the player freedom in which kind of monster they kill. A dragon cluster task, for example, allows the player to kill any kind of dragon instead of the regularly assigned black dragon etc. tasks.|
Challenges[edit | edit source]
Slayer challenges are sometimes given to players by Slayer Masters. They award the normal number of Slayer points (the number that would have been given if it was a task) plus bonus Slayer points and Slayer experience.
|Slayer Master||Additional Slayer points awarded|
|Turael or Spria||0|
|Mazchna or Achtryn||3|
|Duradel or Lapalok||35|
Contracts[edit | edit source]
Up to 8 Slayer points may be obtained per contract assigned by Ling that is completed on the Arc.
Tuska masks[edit | edit source]
Raptor Chest[edit | edit source]
The Raptor key, created by combining four key parts individually dropped by four different level 96 Slayer monsters (Wyverns for part 1, Ripper Demons for part 2, Camel Warriors for part 3, and Acheron mammoths for part 4), can be used to open the Raptor's chest of slaying in War's Retreat. The player gets 375 slayer points each time they open the chest, along with other rewards.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
There are a variety of rewards which can be purchased using Slayer points, including learning how to craft Slayer equipment and gaining various Slayer-related abilities.
Having unlocked all abilities to craft Slayer items and the ability to deliver killing blows quicker is a requirement needed to get a trimmed completionist cape.
Once the helm upgrades have been purchased, any subsequent purchases of the upgrades are reduced to 10% of the original cost.
Slayer points can also be used to purchase certain rewards from Death's Store.
Purchase[edit | edit source]

Learn[edit | edit source]

|Ability to persuade[n 1] Kuradal, Morvran, and Laniakea to assign Nightmare creatures||50||This requires completion of Children of Mah.|
|Ability to fletch broad arrows and broad-tipped bolts.||300||Level 52 Fletching is required to fletch broad arrows, and level 55 is required to fletch broad-tipped bolts.|
|Ability to craft rings of slaying.||300||Level 75 Crafting is required to craft rings of slaying. Assists can be used. The ring provides teleports to four different locations which contain Slayer monsters. Each teleport uses one charge. The ring can also be used for checking the progress of your Slayer assignment - this uses no charges.|
|Ability to deliver killing blows quicker.||400||Monsters which require a finishing blow to kill, such as rock slugs, desert lizards, zygomites and gargoyles will die when they reach zero life points like normal monsters, as long as the item required to kill them is in the player's inventory or tool belt. This ability functions with ranged and magic attacks; the player does not need to be positioned adjacent to the monster to activate the finishing blow effect.
This ability does not work when using experimental fungicide during Chaeldar's challenge.
The item may still be used to kill a monster slightly above zero life points as before. It is stated in-game that 75 Slayer is required for this ability, but neither purchasing it or using it actually requires the stated level.
|Ability to craft Slayer helmets.||400||Level 55 Crafting and completion of Smoking Kills is required to craft Slayer helmets. A Slayer helmet is crafted from an uncharged black mask, a spiny helmet, a facemask, a nose peg and a pair of earmuffs. The Slayer helmet gives all the benefits of the aforementioned items, and defence bonuses comparable to an iron full helm. Once created, the Slayer helmet can be dismantled at any time, giving all the materials used in its construction. A hexcrest and a focus sight can be added to the slayer helm to make a full slayer helmet.|
|Learn how to fuse rings to full Slayer helmets||500
|Level 60 Crafting and Smoking Kills is required for this. Players who purchase this ability can add up to five fully charged rings of slaying (40 teleports) and up to six fully charged ferocious rings (30 teleports) to any full slayer helmet variant to gain access to their teleports. The number of rings a player can fuse to it depends on the tier of the helm.
Players can recharge the teleports by fusing more rings, or by paying 5 co-op slayer points. The helm does not gain the ring of life property of the ferocious ring, and already has the non-teleport properties of a ring of slaying. Fused Slayer helmets benefit from the ferocious ring damage boost.
|Ability to use a new technique to attack ice strykewyrms.||2,000||This ability can replace a fire cape as a requirement to be assigned ice strykewyrm tasks. This reward requires a minimum Slayer level of 93 to purchase - boosts will not work.|
|Learn how to attach bonecrusher to your tool belt||500||Requires the bonecrusher from the Daemonheim rewards shop.|
|Learn how to attach herbicide to your tool belt||500||Requires the herbicide from the Daemonheim rewards shop or Player-owned farm.|
|Learn how to attach seedicide to your tool belt||500||Requires the seedicide from Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza or Player-owned farm.|
|Learn how to attach the charming imp to your tool belt||500||Requires the charming imp from the Daemonheim rewards shop.|
|Learn how to attach the advanced gold accumulator to your tool belt||500||Requires the advanced gold accumulator from the Daemonheim rewards shop.|
Assignment[edit | edit source]
|Cancel task||30||Skips the player's current assignment without penalties—four more assignments will not need to be completed for the player to start earning points again.
This is not worth buying if tasks are not from Chaeldar, Sumona, Duradel, Kuradal, Morvran or Laniakea, unless you are near a 10th or 50th task. It would take a minimum of two tasks from Laniakea, Duradel or Kuradal and three from Chaeldar or Sumona to regain the points used in buying this service.
|Block task||100||Skips the player's current assignment without penalties and permanently removes the assignment from the player's task list - the player will not be assigned that monster again. There is a current maximum limit of 8 types of assignments that can be cancelled - one for every 50 quest points, up to a current maximum of 400 quest points. Cancelling the removal of monsters allows the monster to be assigned again, but does not refund points spent removing the monster. Players should note that blocking a cluster task from Laniakea does not prevent the individual subset task from being rolled, for example blocking Creatures of Daemonheim can still roll Kal'gerion demon or Stalker creature tasks.|
|Extend task||30||Extends the player's number of monsters to kill on that task by 20% (e.g., 180 Nihil would be 216 instead). While this can be used at any point during the task, the 20% is still based on the initial number of monsters. It does not provide extra slayer points, compared to boss slayer.|
|Prefer task||100||Extends the player's current assignment automatically and approximately doubles the chance for the assignment to appear as a task in the future. There is a current maximum limit of 8 types of assignments that can be preferred - one for every 50 quest points, up to a current maximum of 400 quest points. Cancelling a preferred task does not refund points spent preferring the monster.|

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Originally, Smoking Kills was required to obtain points. This was removed in January 2014 as part of a rework of the Slayer skill. Some confusion arose, causing Jagex to clarify that the quest would be required to obtain full points.
- Slayer points were mistakenly added to the Grand Exchange with the update to the Raptor's chest of slaying on 4 May 2020 due to their dummy item having a new icon. The slayer points' starting price was 1 and had a buy limit of 100. When slayer points were removed from the Grand Exchange a week later, any remaining offers stated that the buy limit was -1.
