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 (level 85+), until you can use Laniakea (level 90+), as your Slayer master for all tasks. This guide is focused on high slayer rates, and as such, task profitability will rarely be mentioned or taken into account.
Quest unlocks[edit | edit source]
For every 50 quest points the player has, they will be able to prefer or block an additional task; therefore, having a high amount of quest points is generally recommended
Quests that unlock tasks that would otherwise be blocked are not included in this list.

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||Two additional spawns (the Cradle only possesses three somewhat slow spawns). Place in the small room.||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%. Also allows for safe use of AoE abilities.||1|
|Crystal Shapeshifters||Easier grouping and use of AoE abilities. Place in the small room.||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. Place in the small room.||5|
|Hydrix dragons||Easily AFKable by standing under the spawn point, as the dragon uses relatively weak melee and magic attacks that can be easily healed off of via Soul Split.||1|
|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.
|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.
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.
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. This is extremely useful at any slayer task that drops expensive bones, such as airuts, adamant and rune dragons. It is worth noting that if the player does not have this, a legendary pet can pick up bones too, although at a slower rate.
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.
You should always use Turmoil/Anguish/Torment to increase your kills per hour. If you can afford them, Malevolence/Desolation/Affliction should be used as they provide greater bonuses. Soul Split, whether constantly active or via prayer flicking, will serve as the player's "food" for a majority of tasks, negating the need to bring actual food, though a few should be taken for emergencies.
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; though it will eat considerable profit due to the cost of ghostly essence.
Overloads boost your kills per hour significantly and should be used at all times. Either holy overloads or aggroverload/elder overloads with super prayer renewal. It is not necessary to use elder overloads, though a player may choose to if they have a surplus or wish to increase their kill speed.
Searing overload or Super antifire potions are necessary for dragon tasks as using a dragonfire resistant shield would reduce kills per hour. Likewise, a wyrmfire potion which is also included in any salve combination potion is needed for Wyvern tasks.
Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]
Aggression potion can be used if not using aggroverload to gather up monsters faster and use area of effect abilities. This is recommended for corrupted creatures and soul devourers, who are found in large numbers and can be easily stacked.
Scrimshaw of sacrifice if the player choose to not care about the drops but rather get more experience, they may minimise the cost by activating the scrimshaw the last few seconds of the kill.
Tuska's Wrath is a basic constitution ability. It requires level 50 Constitution to use. The ability deals damage equal to 10,000% of (or 100×) the player's Slayer level (including any stat changes) against their current Slayer assignment. It will use this calculation even if that number would be less than 110% weapon damage. The ability has a two minute cooldown period upon being used. It retains its normal cooldown against specific enemies however, such as most bosses.
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 are only needed for particularly troublesome tasks such as airuts and Kal'gerion demons, who possess high defence and low affinity values, as even the best equipment can still miss relatively often without resorting to an accuracy aura. Otherwise, steel titans should be used, as most monsters don't possess fairly high defence levels or low affinity values that would make it troublesome for their accuracy.
Beast of Burden familiars may be used at tasks where the additional inventory can prove helpful, such as ripper demons and camel warriors. 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.
Cannons[edit | edit source]
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. These are incredibly useful for dark beast and edimmu tasks, as they constantly cycle aggression towards the player whenever they are hit. Most tasks can generally be completed within the duration of the cannon (25 minutes), and even then maintenance is fairly low if it breaks, with a simple click to get it back up and running again. Note that some areas will prohibit the use of these cannons, so aggression potions should be used in their place if necessary.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
You should always use the style that your slayer assignment is weak to, with some exceptions which will be detailed in the slayer table.
The most important piece of gear is the Slayer helmet / Full slayer helmet / Reinforced slayer helmet / Strong slayer helmet / Mighty slayer helmet / Corrupted slayer helmet - while they have very low defensive stats, they give a 12.5% increase to accuracy and damage when slaying assigned monsters. A slayer helmet incorporates all Slayer headgear effects. The slayer helmet may be enchanted so that it may be charged with special attack scrolls for combat familiars to save inventory space (although as familiars can now carry their own scrolls this is no longer so useful). Ferocious ring effects does not work with the helmet on the stand.
- Players who reach 100% hit chance should opt in for the Amulet of souls and Dark magic aura if Maniacal aura is on cooldown.
- 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.
Using good perks on augmented items through Invention and Ancient invention will highly increase the damage dealt and thus increase overall Slayer experience per hour. To unlock Invention you need level 80 in Divination, Crafting, and Smithing. To unlock Ancient invention you simply need to purchase and read the the 'Ancient gizmos' blueprint.

- Demon Slayer is recommended due to Ripper Demons being the best Slayer experience and best preferred task.
- Dragon Slayer is useful if players prefer dragon slaying tasks
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.
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, as it is essentially a pseudo-block.
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.
|Task||Slay xp/hr||Use||Slayer Lvl||Notes||Pros||Cons|
|Ripper Demon||700k||Melee||96||Use upgraded Darklight and have low ping to dodge instant-kill attack.||Extremely high experience per hour. Chance of receiving cursed amascut sand, which is quite valuable, along with other valuable drops. Miner's journal drops for the master quest cape||Potentially difficult and lethal task for beginners, requiring players to stay focused to avoid death.|
Mage if killing imperial guard akh or Magister
|105-117||Scythe either salawa, feline, gorilla or crocodile akhs. The latter three are significantly more dangerous with improper damage output. Alternatively, one can kill imperial guard akhs or the Magister. The former has a slightly reduced experience rate (as aggression potions are completely unfeasible due to all three combat styles being used), while the former has the highest experience rates for this category but is extremely expensive. Imperial guard akhs require level 117 Slayer, and the Magister requires 115 Slayer.||Extremely high experience per hour. Use of an aggression potion and AoE abilities can ensure high kills per hour. Has a different loot mechanic than most other monsters, making it slightly more laid back. Potentially good drops including Key to the Crossing , vital spark , Corrupted gem.||Require a Feather of ma'at to be killed (if not killing the Magister). When using aggression potions, the player may get overwhelmed. corruption mechanic|
|Shadow creatures||680k Manifest||Melee||1||Use 5 Manifest shadows in personal slayer dungeon Sunken Pyramid with an aggression potion or use a Tirannwn quiver 2 or higher in Prifddinas.||Extremely high experience rates per hour.
Chance to get part of the Penny pet
|Drops not as good as most other monsters, and players can be overwhelmed with use of an aggression potion.|
|Nightmare||650k||Melee/Mage||80||Scythe in pyramid; aggression potion increases experience rates but also increases the danger from their ball attack.||Extremely high experience rates per hour. Frequently drop Muspah spine which may be used to create the Nightmare muspah pouch for profit. Valuable alchable drops.||Special attack that may kill an inattentive player. Difficult to fight multiple at once due to significant risk of getting overwhelmed.|
|Lost Grove creatures||610k Golem||Mage/Melee||102-108||Kill golems or bulbous crawlers for higher experience rates. Enhanced devoted perk is highly recommended.||Profit/experience rates are reversed - vinecrawlers provide the least experience but most valuable drops, while golems provide the most experience but least valuable drops. Bulbous crawlers are a mix of the two, with fairly equal experience and profit rates. All monsters in this category can drop cinderbane gloves and the ancient elven ritual shard.||May require a significant amount of food as all monsters in this category can hit extremely high (over 3,500 damage in a single hit).|
|Gemstone dragons||610k Hydrix||Ranged||95-101||Can stay in melee distance to avoid the spec or surge/escape.||
Use notepaper + enhanced bonecrusher to collect bones, or demon horn and bonecrusher combo for prayer restore, or sacrifice scrims for amazing experience
|Dangerous specs if not avoided, Hydrix dragons impair adrenaline, slowing down kills. Need antifire potions.|
|Acheron mammoth||600k||Melee||96||Extremely fast and profitable task. Use Soul Split and stabbing weapons. Dodge ranged and charge attacks (Devotion/Debilitate helps).||High experience rates and profitable task due to drops of Mammoth tusk and Cursed amascut sand.||Potentially difficult and lethal task for beginners, as players can be easily killed by charges and ranged attacks which can deal very high damage.|
|Corrupted creatures||580k Worker||Melee||88-103||Extremely fast task. Use a unicorn stallion or a scrimshaw of vampyrism with Soul Split flicking to restore any lost health. Use aggression potions at northern spawns as southern spawns are too spread out for the potion to work.||Extremely high experience rates per hour. Use of an aggression potion and AoE abilities can ensure high kills per hour. Has a different loot mechanic than most other monsters, making it slightly more laid back. Potentially good drops including Key to the Crossing , vital spark , Corrupted gem.||Require a Feather of ma'at to be killed. When using aggression potions, the player may get overwhelmed. corruption mechanic|
|Elves||560k||Melee||1||Scythe Iorwerth scouts and guards for elf tasks. Killing them while VoS is active adds extra experience.||Both scouts and guards can use bleeds and stuns and can disable protection prayers/curses.|
|Living wyverns||530k||Melee||96||Extremely fast and moderately profitable task. Use melee with a blood nihil and scrimshaw of vampyrism as ranged/magic is significantly slower and players take more damage. It is highly recommended to fight them in melee distance Kill wyverns until 90% freeze then return to a fire to warm up.||Heavy damage inflicted by both the monsters, can often be overwhelmed. Stay in melee range as t|
|Crystal shapeshifters||500k||Melee/Ranged||80||Best done with 5 in pyramid using aggression potions and a scythe. Watch out for bleeds.||High experience task, fairly valuable drops. Drop Tarddian crystals, which are used to make crystal armour, which provides a damage boost against them.||Hybrid monsters that adapt to the player's combat style, attacking with what the player is weakest against. They can also apply stuns and bleeds and roll around for high damage.|
|Airut||470k||Melee||92||Extremely fast and profitable task with tier 90+ melee, scrimshaw of vampyrism and a blood nihil.||High experience and profit task. Task can be forced via the Mask of airut. Use of a bonecrusher and a demon horn necklace, along with auto-sanctifier, also yields significant prayer experience. The Spring cleaner is highly recommended for salvage drops. Frequent drops of sharks which may be used if food is needed.||Special attacks dealing rapid and high damage, which can overwhelm players using aggression potions. Can also increase their defence as their health lowers which makes them harder to hit without tier 90+ weapons and a nihil.|
|Abyssal demons||400k||Melee (scythe)
|85||Extremely fast task, often done for item levels on augmented equipment. Either kill at Kuradal's or Slayer Tower (with contract and Morytania legs 4). Note that the latter option is significantly more packed than the former.||Can be forced via Mask of the abyss. Very fast task that can be done with minimal gear. Use of a Demon horn necklace with Attuned ectoplasmator allows prayer restoration but can be costly.||Often overcrowded. Bad drops.|
|Kal'gerion demons||440k||Melee||90||Best done in pyramid as special attacks have no effect there. Recommended to use upgraded Darklight for fast kill rates.||Very high defence without proper magic gear or enhanced Darklight.|
|Camel Warriors||390k||Melee||96||Mirages slow down kill time but can be dealt with easily.||Can drop cursed amascut sand.||Desert heat if not killing in the Sunken Pyramid (unless Crocodile Tears is completed) and fairly spread out spawns. Also requires a considerable amount of food compared to the other raptor mob tasks.|
|Stalker creatures||370k Soulgazer||Ranged||71,99||Fairly slow task.||Chance for Veil-ripper Ozharakha, which has guaranteed drop of hexhunter bow.||Relatively high health and damage. Elite soulgazers use considerably more food compared to normal ones.|
|Edimmu||360k||Melee||90||Extremely fast and profitable task, use a scythe to kill edimmu faster.||Very profitable task. Affected by the Amulet of salve and its enhanced version. Use of Spring cleaner, Attuned ectoplasmator, and Auto-sanctifier recommended. Elite edimmu has chance of dropping Eddy.||Use of cannon over aggression potions is preferred. Cost of cannonballs can add up. Players may be overwhelmed by numerous edimmu if using a cannon.|
(Use fire spells)
|95||Very fast task with an oldak coil in the agility dungeon (resource/main dungeon has too many runts).||Can be forced via the Mask of ganodermic. Drops big bones which allow the use of a bonecrusher and demon horn necklace to replace prayer potions.||Clustered with ganodermic runts who have less valauble drops.|
|Chaos Giants||350k||Melee||1||Decent drops, fast and AFK task if a cannon is used with a scythe.||Use of a bonecrusher + demon horn necklace provides unlimited prayer for healing and curses.||Cost of cannonballs can add up quickly.|
|Dark beasts||340k||Mage/Ranged||90||Extremely fast and profitable task.
Can use cannon within the Mourner Tunnels for faster task.
|Can be forced via the Mask of gloom. Drops big bones which allow the use of bonecrusher + demon horn necklace for unlimited prayer.||Use of aggression potions discouraged as damage taken is often too high.|
|Cres' creations / Automatons||320k||Ranged||67||Any combat style can be used but magic or ranged are recommended to stay out of range of random special attacks.||Can be forced via the Mask of the Automatons.||Special attack may happen randomly for any automaton within the area and hit very hard. This can be avoided by taking off AOE abilities (including corruption shot/blast) as any automaton that has been targeted immediately sets off their special attack timer, even if they haven't been hit.|
(Use fire spells)
|93||Use fire spells and a fire/kiln cape for increased damage output||Can be forced via the Mask of white wyrm. Extremely fast to kill due to the increased damage output from capes and fire spells.||Require a fire cape or Kiln cape to do any damage, if the perk to damage them without either cape has not been bought. Elemental spells other than fire deal reduced damage.|
|Dinosaurs (Cluster task)||360k Feral Dinosaur||Melee||90 - 114||Use Noxious scythe with a cannon and aggression pot. Pray melee and use Turmoil/Malevolence and use a vamp scrimshaw.||Extremly profitable task around 14M gp/h.||Potentially difficult and lethal task for beginners. When using aggression potions and cannon, the player may get overwhelmed.|
|Dragons (Cluster task)||610k Hydrix||Mage/Ranged||1, 95 - 101||Only when going for the Gemstone dragons King/Queen Black Dragon, or Dragonkin Laboratory solo runs||Dragons are always aggressive so potions not required. Can use bonecrusher + demon horn necklace for unlimited prayer.||Dangerous specs if not avoided, Hydrix dragons impair adrenaline, slowing down kills. Need antifire potions.|
|Strykewyrm (Cluster task)||?||?||73 - 94||Fast task if Ice strykewyrms are killed.|
|Vyrewatch||280k||Mage||67||Relatively fast task with the Sunspear, which also provides decent Firemaking and Prayer experience.||Endlessly aggressive, allowing for continuous kills.||May be overwhelmed if not paying attention, tends to be crowded.|
|Celestial dragons||270k||Ranged||1||Fairly slow task. Only attacks using dragonfire special when outside melee distance, so super antifire potions provide complete protection and are recommended.||Fairly fast to kill. Drops are always noted as well as often valuable. Can use bonecrusher + demon horn necklace for unlimited prayer.||Often scattered far apart. Drops are too variable and clutter the inventory. Timestop mechanic discourages attacking multiple dragons at a time, do not use aggression potions.|
(Use blood barrage)
|76||Very fast task as Muspah take double damage from ancient spells.||Fast and profitable task.||Usually done on ancients, which disallows use of High level alchemy. Explorer's ring allows 15 runeless high alchemy casts per day. Notepaper may be taken instead.|
(Use dragonbane ammunition)
|1||Somewhat slow task.||Very profitable, with reinforced dragon bones and small plated rune salvage guaranteed per every kill. They have reasonably valuable drops.||Slow task, use of dragonbane ammunition is mandatory.|

(Use water spells)
|1||Skip if not killing the Kalphite King/Queen or corrupted variants||Reasonably profitable when killing the King or Queen. Fairly fast task when fighting exiled kalphites.||Kalphite King requires a group (which can disrupt experience rates if the slayer doesn't deal enough damage) or solo, both requiring high-level gear. Kalphite Queen is fairly slow in task progression. Feather of Ma'at and 100 Slayer required for corrupted kalphites.|
|Ascension members||100k||Ranged||81, 95||Skip if not killing rorarius, capsarius or legiones (this option having a high input/low output)||Very fast, afk, and easy task using aggression potions.

Bursting corrupted scarabs[edit | edit source]
Bursting Corrupted scarabs on a daily basis can give significant slayer experience 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.
