Life Points: I've recently killed 100 banshees for slayer and it seems they have 230 Life Points and not 220 like the page says. Not a big change, but I can't change it myself.

they only have 220lp actually, whenever you 1hit one it comes up with 220. my guess is that they restore 10lps between hits as per stated in the articule. this would make them appear to have 230lp to anybody 2hitting them.

therefore im changing it back to 220 Zaros symbol.png KDanger Talk RuneScape Wiki, Y U NO WORK 21:02, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

ignore this, i thought the articule said 230 lol

Okay, it says blue charm 0%. However, I got one. This should be changed. CS1Energypyre 20:22, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Item drop rates[edit source]

I just did a drop log for my task of 112 banshees. I'm not gonna put this on the main page until it's formatted, but here's the rough (if anyone else wants to figure out how to make the drop rates like the charm log, I'd be grateful).

Feel free to condense this if it is taking up too much space. I wasn't sure which would be better, horizontal or vertical. --Canifis 00:16, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

Update: I just realised that I had a clue scroll of unknown level in my bank. Thus, the table above does not include chance of clue scroll. --Canifis 01:57, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Charm Drop Rate[edit source]

This page seems to have a vandalized charm drop rate because it went from 6-7% for green charms to 51-53%. Also, that number is ridiculous for a sample of roughly 50 kills I got without a single green charm.

It was vandalism, thanks for spotting it, I've fixed it. PHGLDPBucket detail.pngrwojy 23:51, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Mystic gloves problem?[edit source]

Both sets of mystic gloves are marked 'not sold' in the GE Market Price column of the drops section, but actually they can be sold on the GE. Inelcirc 00:49, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. It makes a difference if you call them by their real name. --Saftzie (talk) 00:59, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Aggressiveness[edit source]

Banshees are actually aggressive towards low level players. I went there for slayer, and they started attacking me first. :p

A friend just got an uncut dragonstone from one. He was not wearing a ROW either.Talanquel 01:06, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Drop[edit source]

I just received a Dragon Spear from the banshees and that is not on the page, so it should be listed. I would do it myself if I knew how.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on April 12 2011 at 20:19.
That would be covered by "rare drop table". --Henneyj 20:52, April 12, 2011 (UTC)


Ok so it turns out you can safe spot banshees in Slayer Tower, this is extremely useful for low levels, or 1 def pures as banshees can actually hit really annoyingly. In the second room full of banshees (the room with the staircase in it) there are several torch poles around the room, if you attack them then run behind these torches, with good positioning, they get stuck behind the 'pillors'. I found that the best spot was the torch (and weird little pole) east of the stairs, I finished my whole task using one lobster on a 1 def account. Also the torchs that are north and south of the stairs work as well. This system works with mage and range, as for halberd, i dont actually know, but i assume as it is a fairly close gap.

I dont know if this is a glitch or if you have always been able to do it, but i thought i'd put it up here to let other low def accounts know about it. Nick37846 14:54, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Coin Drop[edit source]

Just got 266 coin drop, anyone else got that? Slayer tower banchees... Dirnaith (talk) 10:28, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

And now 381 (or 361? disappeared too fast) as well and 296 coins... Coin drop has been changed. Dirnaith (talk) 10:47, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Normal Contract XP[edit source]

I got 3 XP per contract kill. (20% of what you get as compared to being assigned by a slayer master) Not sure if this was relevant to Slayer level or not.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 16:38, July 15, 2013.

I've added 3.1 exp for the normal contract (exactly 20% of 15.5); after you've killed 10 you should've gotten 31 Slayer exp. Care to check this while you're there? ^^ . IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 16:41, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Adamant Kite Drop[edit source]

I'm positive that Banshees don't drop them, just recently went for the Champion scroll challenge, resulted in 20,007 Kills (Can Confirm with the Banshee Helm Killcount), Hadn't recieved a single Kite Drop. It's improbable that the Addy kite would be one of the rarest drop rates in the game.

On a Side note: Throughout the 20,007 Kills I recieved 33 Mystic Gloves drops (1/606 Drop Rate); Which included wearing a Ring of Wealth.Obbyshaggz (talk) 07:47, February 11, 2014 (UTC)

Incorrect drop table[edit source]

The drop table is completely wrong due to an update they no longer drop rune essence for example and now drop cooked pike. 13:46, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
