Slayer Guide

Intro

Slayer is a members only skill. The skill of slayer is to learn the enemy?s weakness and kill it accordingly. In slayer, you will get an assignment from a slayer master to kill a certain type of monster for a number of times. These assignments can vary from 10 spiders to 200 iron dragons and depend a lot on which slayer master you choice to work for. To get started on the skill, go to a slayer master and ask him for an assignment, he will tell you what monster to kill. You will get some experience for each kill equal to the monsters hit points. If you kill it with two people, the one that does the most damagewill get half the exp and the one that does the final blow the other half. If you do both, or attack it on your own you get the full exp. Also, there are various monster that can only be killed with slayer.

 

Enchanted gem

When you first start slayer you will get an enchanted gem, you can buy a new one for 1 gp at each slayer master. If you click on your enchanted gem you can communicate with the slayer masters. You will be talking to the one most appropriate for you. You can ask for info on his/her location but most importantly, you can know how many monsters are left to kill to complete your assignment. This is very useful during a mission so try to take it with you. It can also give you a tip about the monster you are assigned to kill.

 

Slayer masters

The Burthorpe slayer master is the easiest and the Shilo village slayer master the hardest. If you get an assignment you don't like, you can go to the master in Burthorpe to get an easier one. You can't change an assignment you get from the Burthorpe master though, so it's not possible to keep changing until you get one you like. Each slayer master has his own selection of monsters to give as assignment, the higher the master, the more and the harder the monsters. The slayer masters will assign you both normal monsters to kill or special slayer creatures as explained later on.

    Tips, tricks and notes

    • Some creatures like Elves are better to be ranged, some others are in multi-player combat area, try a few types of attack and equipment to see what you should use.
    • If an assignment turns out to be too hard halfway, don't hesitate to get a new one, you get experience per monster, not for an assignment overall.
    • Start with the right slayer master, if you go to a too high one you might have to go back to Burthorpe and get an even worse assignment.
    • If you can't kill the enemies of your assigned slayer master, try training your combat to a higher level.
    • Using a cannon to hit higher does not affect the amount of slayer experience you receive from a kill. So using a cannon is a quick way of training. The cannon cannot be set up in both the Slayer Dungeon and in the Slayer tower. Learn about the cannon in our ranged
    • Training slayer and combat go hand in hand. For each monster you kill as part of an assignment, you recieve the normal combat xp as normal as well as slayer xp.
