Slayer training/High-levelled

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about high-levelled Slayer training. For the general Slayer guide, see Slayer training.

This guide is aimed at players who wish to maximise their Slayer experience per hour. It is assumed that the player is familiar with slayer mechanics and is both high levelled and well-equipped. This guide assumes you will be using Morvran as your Slayer master for all tasks. This guide is focused on high slayer rates, and as such, task profitability will rarely be mentioned/taken into account

This guide also assumes you have an optimised Revolution++ ability bar

Quest unlocks[edit | edit source]

Note: For every 50 Quest points the player has, they will be able to prefer/block an additional task, therefore having a high amount of Quest points is generally recommended

Quests that unlock tasks that would otherwise be blocked anyway are not included in this list.

Quest name Reason Slayer Assignment Importance
Plague's End Unlocks Morvran and the rest of Prifddinas. Required
Smoking Kills Unlocks Sumona and the ability to construct slayer helms. Utmost

Slayer Codex and player-owned dungeon[edit | edit source]

With the release of Menaphos, players with at least level 99 Slayer can fill their Slayer Codex. It is advised to invest slayer points and time to collect at least 100 different monster souls. For every 20 souls collected, slayer helmets grant a +1% gain (up to 5% at 100 souls) to Slayer experience, effectively being an experience boosting item.

In addition to the Slayer Codex, players with at least 99 Slayer have access to a player-owned dungeon. The following slayer assignments are recommended to fill the three rooms available, or a player can access another player's dungeon if they have a needed room setup.

Assignment Reason Recommended amount of spawns
Kal'gerion demons When fought in a player owned dungeon, Kal'gerion demons do not use their special attacks. 2
Muspah More monsters in a smaller room with increased respawn speed makes it easier to use AoE abilities. 5
Ripper Demons With only 1 ripper demon, it removes the <35% player's life points aggression mechanic, meaning that no other demons will become aggressive towards the player when health drops below 35%. 1
Crystal Shapeshifters Easier grouping and use of AoE abilities. 5
Shadow creatures Easier time attacking multiple shadows at once and use of AoE. Best to put Manifest Shadow Creatures in your dungeon as they are greater experience/kill than other shadow creatures. 5
Hydrix dragons High AFK experience rates and easier to avoid mechanics 1

In addition to the slayer monsters, some player owned dungeon rooms benefit from prayer restoring monsters via the use of a Bonecrusher and Demon horn necklace

Monster Reason Recommended amount of spawns
Mogre 1950 LP, has the least life points but does not aggro even with aggression potion, not good for AFK 2 - 4
Suqah 2650 LP, least life points among aggro options 2 - 4
Sophanem Crocodile 2900 LP, drops only big bones, great for area looting 2 - 4
Hill Giant 3200 LP, good for Champion's Challenge 2 - 4

Slayer points[edit | edit source]

This guide assumes you have the following Slayer rewards unlocked, although you may adapt as needed.

Reward Cost Reason
Ability to make Ring of slaying. 300 Various teleport locations reduce downtime between tasks.
Ability to deliver killing blows quicker. 400 Tasks such as Gargoyles will not be slowed down from need to manually kill each gargoyle when they are at low health.

Note: A legendary pet with the "Slayer Finisher" ability may be used until this is unlocked

Ability to craft Slayer helmets. 400 Slayer helmet is the most important piece of equipment.
Learn how to fuse rings to Full slayer helmets 500 Ferocious rings fused into helmets work at Kuradal's dungeon, allowing a player to wear a ring whilst still benefiting from the damage boost of the ferocious ring
Full slayer helmet upgrades. 2100 Increases the effectiveness of Slayer helmet. 4 upgrades.
Ability to persuade Kuradal and Morvran to assign Nightmare creatures 50 High rates of Slayer experience

Other rewards are either quality of life improvements, unnecessary task unlocks or general consumables.

Ushabti used to fill the Slayer Codex can be bought from the masters at 20 Slayer points each.

Tool belt[edit | edit source]

Players can add many Slayer items to their tool belt, such as a rock hammer and some special items (charming imp, bonecrusher, herbicide, seedicide, advanced gold accumulator). The latter items require 500 slayer points each to be able to be added to the tool belt.

The Bonecrusher upgrade, bought from Waiko for 25,000 chimes and 25 taijitu, picks up bones rather than crushing them. It is worth noting that if the player does not have this, a legendary pet can pick up bones too.

Additional requirements[edit | edit source]

Although these are not actual requirements, they are necessary to reach higher experience rates and should be used at all times.

Prayers[edit | edit source]

You should always use Turmoil/Anguish/Torment to increase your kills per hour. Soul Split can be used on a majority of tasks and in most cases completely removes the need for food.

For some tasks, notably dragons, you can use a bonecrusher in conjunction with demon horn necklace. This method negates the need for prayer potions during task. This can also be used with monsters that drop ashes via the use of the attuned ectoplasmator; however, this is often very costly and not recommended

Stat-boosting potions[edit | edit source]

Overloads boost your kills per hour significantly and should be used at all times. Either holy overloads or Aggroverload/supreme overloads with super prayer renewal. It is not necessary to use supreme overloads however, a player may choose to if they have a surplus or wish to increase rates by about 2% dps.

Super antifire potions are necessary for dragon tasks as using a dragonfire resistant shield would reduce kills per hour. Likewise, a wyrmfire potion is needed for wyvern tasks.

Weapon poison++ can be used to great effect on most slayer monsters and should be used in conjunction with cinderbane gloves if the player has them.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

Armour spikes (alloy) should be used when possible alternatively Armour spikes for a cheaper option.

Aggression potion can be used if not using Aggroverload to gather up monsters faster and use area of effect abilities.

Scrimshaw of sacrifice if the player choose to not care about the drops but rather get more experience, they may minimize the cost by activating the scrimshaw the last few seconds of the kill.

Summoning familiars[edit | edit source]

There are 3 categories for familiars that would assist in high-level slayer tasks - Combat, Beast of Burden and Healers.

Use of combat familiars like Nihil at level 87 or Steel titans at level 99 can increase your experience rates. Nihils should only be used if the player is suffering from an accuracy problem but not to the point where a beast of burden would be required such as wyverns. Otherwise, steel titans should be used as the primary offensive familiar due to their reasonably high damage output compared to other combat familiars.

Beast of Burden familiars may be used at tasks where the additional inventory can prove helpful, such as some bosses and slayer monsters, such as rune dragons. Otherwise, magic notepaper should be used to cert drops from monsters such as airuts. Pack yaks are incredibly useful for most slayer tasks due to their ability to bank up to 240 items per hour, and adding 30 spaces to the player's inventory to fill with extra supplies and carry loot.

Legendary pets are by far the best option for those who want to make some money off of slayer without hindering their experience rates much. These pets have 2 incredibly useful abilities: Scavenge and Beast of Burden. The Scavenge ability picks up items after killing enemies with a 10-15 second cooldown. The second ability makes it act as a beast of burden when a pouch is used on the familiar.

The Dwarf Multicannon (with the restocking perk) is another incredibly useful piece of equipment, which is often used to speed up tasks. The Oldak Coil is further recommended to be used instead of the Dwarf Multicannon, if possible. Either of these cannons can be used and, once set up in the spawn area of your task, will remain active for 25 minutes before degrading, which is often long enough for the entire task to be completed. The cannon further makes many tasks very easy to complete due to the continuous attacks by the cannon which keep the player in combat for the life of the cannon.

Any variant of Slayer helmet, the corrupted one being the best, should be used for every task. The bonuses are far too powerful to substitute any other helm under any circumstances.

Players who reach 100% hit chance should opt in for the Amulet of souls.

Players should use the best weapons they can for damage, preferably tier 90, and at least tier 80 power armour. The noxious scythe and Dragon Rider lance are far superior to other melee options due to their increased range and synergy with area of effect abilities.

Cinderbane gloves are extremely useful against monsters that are not immune to poison, as they apply a poisonous effect to all monsters the player is in combat with.

Augmentation[edit | edit source]

Using good perks on augmented items through Invention will highly increase the damage dealt and thus increase overall Slayer experience per hour.

Recommended perks for slayer:

Perk Type Max Tier Description
Aftershock Weapon 3 After dealing 50,000 damage, create an explosion centred on your current target, dealing up to 40% per rank weapon damage to nearby enemies.
Precise Weapon 5 Increases your minimum damage by 1.5% per rank of your maximum damage.
Equilibrium Weapon 3 Increases minimum hit by 3% per rank, and decreases maximum hit by 1% per rank.
Biting Weapon, Armour 3 +2% chance per rank to critically hit opponents.
Genocidal Weapon, Armour 1 Deal up to 7% extra damage depending on how far you are through your Slayer task. Highly recommended perk to use when on slayer tasks.
Crackling Weapon, Armour 3 Periodically zaps your combat target for 50% per rank of your weapon's damage. 1 minute cooldown.
Undead Slayer Weapon, Armour 1 Deal 7% additional damage to undead.
Demon Slayer Weapon, Armour 1 Deal 7% additional damage to demons.
Dragon Slayer Weapon, Armour 1 Deal 7% additional damage to dragons.
Impatient Weapon, Armour 3 9% chance per rank for basic abilities to generate 3 extra adrenaline.
Scavenging Weapon, Armour 3 1% chance per rank to get an uncommon Invention component as a drop from combat (with a 1% chance it will be a rare component instead).
Planted Feet Weapon 1 The duration of Sunshine and Death's Swiftness is increased by 25%, but they no longer deal periodic damage to your target.

A recommended augment setup is as follows:

Equipment Type Perks Components Notes
Weapon Aftershock 3 5 Ilujankan 
Precise 4 + Equilibrium 2 1 Armadyl + 4 Precise Can use 5 Precise components instead.
Top Biting 2 + Genocidal 3 Direct + 1 Bandos + 1 Undead
Crackling 3 + X (see below) 4 Explosive + X
Bottom Impatient 3 + Devoted 2-3 5 Zamorak Devoted is unnecessary.
Scavenging 2 + Mobile 2 Smooth + 3 Connector
Enhanced Excalibur Planted Feet + Aftershock 1-2 2 Cywir + 3 Ilujankan Use before using Sunshine or Death's Swiftness.
Sunspear Planted Feet + Aftershock 1-2 2 Cywir + 3 Ilujankan Aftershock resets after weapon switch.
Mobile + X 1-2 Dexterous + X Replaceable.

Transportation options[edit | edit source]

The Slayer cape ability or upgraded ferocious rings allow for fast transport to Morvran and are always the fastest and best options when obtaining a new task. Players can use the same item to quickly get to Kuradal's Dungeon.

With 99 Dungeoneering, the Dungeoneering cape's perk can be used which has a teleport option to any resource dungeon and can be convenient for reaching some otherwise remote slayer monsters, such as the Dragontooth Island celestial dragons resource dungeon. A charged Hoardstalker ring has the same teleport options but has limited charges.

After completion of the Fate of the Gods and all optional quests for The World Wakes, Juna will give you the Sixth-Age circuit, a fast transportation method to the World Gate, from which you can reach Muspah, Nihil, Nightmares, Crystal Shapeshifters, and Rune dragons.

Having a ring of slaying provides the fastest means of transportation to the Slayer Tower, where creatures like Abyssal demons reside.

Cancelling and blocking tasks[edit | edit source]

Slayer assignments can be blocked at any slayer master for 100 slayer points; this requires the player's current assignment be the creatures they wish to block. Up to eight assigned monsters, or group of monsters such as grotworms or mutated jadinkos, can be blocked in this manner, with one block allowed every 50 quest points.

Cancelling the assignment costs 30 points. The monster must be the currently assigned task for it to be blocked. In order to maximise efficiency, players should cancel tasks which are commonly assigned yet offer slow rates of Slayer experience, often due to issues such as the inability to use a cannon and/or a titan, low life points, or other factors, such as long animations or specialised killing methods. Please see the task summary section below to determine which tasks should be considered for the use of a block.

Players are recommended to use the cancel option as often as it can be used while maintaining a stable level of Slayer points. This will ensure that the player spends as much time as possible doing tasks which offer fast Slayer experience.

The task summary section of this guide will tell you which tasks to block, which to skip, and which to complete if you are running low on Slayer points. For example, a player who is running low on points may do a greater demon task even though these tasks are usually cancelled. These tasks also give out more ferocious rings if done in Kuradal's Dungeon.

If a toggleable task is on that the player does not wish to do, toggle the task off to avoid wasting slayer points on cancelling.

Guide to optimal tasks[edit | edit source]

This table is not indicative of a monster's weakness or other irrelevant data. This table instead serves as a reference point for optimal task completion. Slayer rates are calculated using recommended equipment and Revolution++.

This table is purely based on maximal xp/hr rate. The actual Xp/hr rates will vary based on skill/equipment and how active one is when doing these tasks. Players are suggested to make an informed decision based on which tasks they prefer based on their pros and cons. Some of the faster tasks may be done to get slayer points quickly.

Bursting corrupted scarabs[edit | edit source]

Bursting Corrupted scarabs on a daily basis can give significant slayer exp which adds up over time. The experience and reputation gained from the Scarabs scales with the player's level but decreases with the amount of scarabs squished. This decrease resets at 00:00 UTC.
