# Sumona

Sumona is an incarnation of Amascut found in the north of Pollnivneach, in a house south-east of the magic carpet transport spot. She can be spoken to to begin the Smoking Kills quest, though she won't talk to the player with a cat out.

In Smoking Kills, Sumona tells you that her sister, Jesmona, has been caught by a monster and trapped under the well in the centre of Pollnivneach. However, after the quest, players learn that Sumona and Jesmona are one and the same. This is revealed by Catolax in the Pollnivneach Slayer Dungeon, during the final cutscene. He further explains that Sumona is, in fact, Amascut, the Devourer, in disguise. However, as Amascut promised the player a reward in return for saving her sister, she is forced to act as a Slayer master. However, this does not stop her from sending them on dangerous assignments, as she hopes they will eventually die during one of them.

After players complete the quest, Sumona becomes a new Slayer Master (with 90 Combat and 35 Slayer). She also explains about the Slayer points obtained for each Slayer assignment completed.

## Slayer points

Players can receive Slayer points for completing Slayer tasks, based on how many tasks players have accomplished in a row. Completion of a task assigned by Sumona will grant you:

• 12 Slayer points for every normal task
• 60 for every 10th
• 180 for every 50th

This means that if using Sumona over the long term, an average of 19.2 points will be granted per task.

## Assignments

The following are all the possible assignments a player can receive from Sumona:

1. ^ Requires you to speak to the dying knight outside of God Wars Dungeon to unlock them as a task.

### Slayer Challenge

Jesmona kills an insectoid assassin.

Sumona will occasionally offer a special task in place of a regular Slayer task. The player can decline to take the special task without penalty. If the player accepts the special task, completing the task:

• Earns 15,000 Slayer experience
• Earns 30 Slayer points
• Counts as a task for the player's consecutive task count, thus 12 Slayer points are received, giving a total of 42 points.

Sumona's special task is for the player to slay the Kalphite Queen. The queen is very hard to kill solo, and players on this task can be assisted by another player. However, the player is only credited with completing the task if they cause the majority of the damage to the queen, and CoinShare/LootShare must be off. The slayer helmet does not seem to work for the queen's second form.

The percentage chance of getting assigned a given Slayer task can be calculated using the formula

${\displaystyle {\frac {w}{S}}\times 100\%}$

where ${\displaystyle w}$ is the task's weight and ${\displaystyle S}$ is the sum of all weights for the particular Slayer Master. Note that the weights of all blocked tasks, as well as tasks toggled off have to be subtracted from the sum ${\displaystyle S}$. Preferring a task doubles its chance of being assigned.

For Sumona, assuming all possible assignments are available, ${\displaystyle S}$ = 410.

## Update history

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
• patch 3 July 2017 (Update):
• Sumona now only assigns scorpions, desert lizards and crocodiles if the level requirement to kill them in the Sophanem slayer dungeon is met.
• patch 13 April 2015 (Update):
• Sumona will no longer be referred to as “him” when using a slayer gem.
• patch 14 August 2012 (Update):
• Sumona no longer has a blank chat box when speaking to her.

## Trivia

• When trying to close her curtain entrance, it gives the response "Some mystical force prevents you from moving the curtain. Sumona gives you a knowing smirk."
• If you ask Sumona about her sister she'll reply saying 'Am I my sister's keeper?'. This is a reference to Genesis 4:9 where Cain asks 'Am I my brother's keeper?' after God asks him about his brother.
