Ushabti detail.png

Ushabti (plural ushabtiu or ushabtis) are containers used to trap the souls of Slayer monsters. When killing slayer monsters while holding an empty ushabti in the inventory, there is a chance that it captures the creature's soul, becoming filled. At 120 slayer, the player has the same capture rate to obtain a soul as if they were on-task without the need to actually be on-task for said monster. For further details, see the explanation provided on how the calculator works further on down this page. The filled ushabti can be taken to the Sunken Pyramid in Menaphos and placed in either the Chest of Souls, or in a dungeon hotspot.

Doing either one of these will count towards filling the Slayer Codex, and therefore count towards fulfilling the requirements for the master quest cape and the trimmed completionist cape. This will consume the full ushabti, meaning that the player will need to obtain another soul should they wish to place it elsewhere.

If placed in the Chest of Souls, Slayer experience will be granted. The first soul of a creature placed in the chest awards the full Slayer experience and 250 Menaphos reputation in the active district, with each additional soul awarding 25% of the experience only. Turning in all 165 souls at least once will give a total of 1,786,125‬ Slayer experience and 41,250 reputation. If multiple filled ushabti are held in the inventory, they will be placed in the chest one at a time in the order they are held in the inventory.

Alternately, placing a filled ushabti in a dungeon hotspot spawns a copy of the creature which will respawn until removed. In order to do this, the player must enter the dungeon in building mode. Doing so awards the same experience as if you had added the Ushabti to the Chest of Souls, either granting the full amount for the first time you've added the soul, or, for subsequent deposits of the same type of creature to the Chest of Souls, 25% of the initial value. Creatures within the dungeon cannot be used to fill an ushabti.

At least 110 ushabti are required for the master quest cape, and at least 165 are required for the trimmed completionist cape. 145 souls are obtainable at Slayer level 99.

An ushabti can be upgraded into a cursed ushabti by combining it with cursed amascut sand, which has a higher chance of capturing a creature's soul.

If a player has both a binding contract and ushabti in their inventory, the ushabti will be used if it activated. Otherwise the binding contract will be used.

If a player's inventory is full and has multiple ushabti, a slayer monster's soul cannot be caught. If the inventory only has a single ushabti, the soul can be caught as normal.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Up to 50 ushabti can be obtained for free by speaking to Faiza, depending on the player's Slayer level. At level 99 (which is required to enter the Sunken Pyramid), 25 will be given out. At each level above 99, an additional one can be obtained from her, while an additional 4 can be obtained at level 120. Whenever Faiza is talked to, she will give you as many as you are owed before proceeding with normal dialogue - you are not penalised for claiming ushabti below level 120 Slayer.

For example, if you first enter the pyramid at level 104 Slayer, Faiza gives you 30 ushabti; if you next speak to her at level 107 Slayer, she will give you 3 ushabti; and if you next speak to her at level 120 Slayer, she will give you the 17 remaining ushabti.

Ushabti can also be purchased from Slayer Masters for 20 slayer points each, and are a possible reward from the Rush of Blood D&D, the Motherlode Maw, and by exchanging crystal motherlode shards with Wythien.

Chance of capturing a soul[edit | edit source]

The calculator form will appear here soon. You will need JavaScript enabled.
The result will appear here when you submit the form.

The chance of capturing a soul can be calculated as such:[1]


After each step, truncate the resulting number (remove any decimal places).

  1. Calculate the base target from the difference between the player's Slayer level (base level, ignore boosts) and the monster's Slayer level:
    • If the player's Slayer level is lower than the monster's Slayer level, set target to 1,000.
    • Otherwise, set target to - i.e. square the difference, then multiply by 5.
    • If then set target to 1,000.
    • Note that some monsters (primarily those with no Slayer level required to damage) have a faux Slayer level applied for the purpose of calculating ushabti capture chance. These levels are listed on Slayer Codex, and are provided in the calculator below.
  2. If the monster is the player's current Slayer assignment OR the player has 120 Slayer:
  3. If the monster is not the player's current Slayer assignment AND the player does not have 120 Slayer, halve target, capping it at a minimum of 1,000 (i.e. set target to ).
  4. If the player is using a cursed ushabti, multiply target by 1.5.
  5. Any additional boosts, such as the 10% Summer Escape boost, are added here (multiply target by 1.1).
  6. Finally, roll an integer between 0 and 500,000. If roll is below target, the soul is captured.
    • This effectively makes target the numerator of a fraction where 500,000 is the denominator.
