The Slayer skill is much like your Combat skill, although slightly different. This Members-Only skill allows you to fight and kill monsters that you would normally be unable to defeat without the Slayer skill and equipment.

The Basics

The Slayer skill gives you the ability to kill enemies that would otherwise be unharmed by your attacks, by using Slayer equipment and your experience in the skill.

Slayer Master Locations

You can begin the Slayer skill at any time by speaking to any of the several Slayer Masters located in different parts of the RuneScape world.

If you’re having trouble finding a Slayer Master, just look for the Slayer Icon on your map. It would also be wise to start off with the Slayer Master in Burthorpe, as he generally gives easier tasks than the others.

Training Slayer

To train your Slayer skill, you first need to get an assignment from one of the Slayer Masters as described above. They will tell you to kill a certain number of a kind of monster, and once you’ve defeated the required amount you can go back to your Slayer Master and get another assignment.

While on an assignment, you’ll receive experience only for defeating the type of monster that has been assigned to you. Killing other monsters that have not been assigned to you will not get you any Slayer experience. The amount of experience you receive from each kill is the same as the number of Life Points the monster has. If two players attack the same monster, one causing the most damage and the other striking the final blow, the experience will be split in half between each player.

Some Slayer monsters also require you to use a weapon or other item to defend against their attacks. Be sure to bring this item with you at all times during the assignment, and don’t attack Slayer monsters without the appropriate things or you may become overwhelmed and killed.

Slayer monsters drop many unique items that can only be obtained by killing them. These items include Black and White Mystic Robes, Armored Boots, Granite Maul, and the Abyssal Whip, as well as Clue Scrolls for Treasure Trails and assorted herbs.

Alternate Monsters

Sometimes your Slayer Master may be a bit vague as to the type of monster that he wants you to kill. He may generalize and say “Kalphites” or “Dragons,” which means that you can kill any monster of that type.

  • Kalphites – Kalphite Workers or Soldiers.
  • Dragons – Baby Blue or Red Dragons.
  • Wolves – White Wolf Mountain Wolves.
  • Shades – Various Shades found in Mort’ton.

The Enchanted Gem

In Slayer there is a lot of equipment available (details below), but none more necessary than the Enchanted Gem. The Enchanted Gem will enable you to contact the most matched slayer master to your combat level (Vannaka to those below combat level 70, Chaeldar to those between combat level 70 and 100, Duradel from combat level 100-110 and Kuradel from combat level 110+.

Once you activate the enchanted gem you have the following options:

Runescape Slayer Skill Guide

Runescape Slayer Skill Guide

[Gbuy id=’3698′]The two most important options are “How am I doing so far?” which will tell you which monster you are killing, and how many you have left to kill of it such as “You’re currently assigned to kill Cockatrice, only 85 more to go.” The other important option is “Got any tips for me?” Then your slayer master will tell you advice such as “Werewolves are feral creatures, they are strong and tough with sharp claws and teeth”

The other two options “Who are you?” and “Where are you?” are simple questions which let you find out who your slayer master is (not just the name) and where to find him or her to get tasks from them.

Ring of Slayer

The Ring of Slayer (aka “Slayer Ring”) can be bought from any Slayer Master for 75 slayer points. Once you reach 300 Slayer points, you have the ability to spend them on learning how to craft a Slayer Ring. This ring allows you to teleport to the following locations:

  • Desert Slayer Dungeon – You teleport to Sumona’s house.
  • Rellekka Slayer Dungeon – You teleport just outside the cave.
  • Morytania Slayer Tower – You teleport in front of the door of the tower.
  • Tarn’s Lair – You teleport to a chamber with a passage way leading to the lair.

The Slayer ring has 8 charges and will turn back into an Enchanted Gem once it runs out.

Changing Assignments

If you think that a certain assignment is too tough or too boring, you have two ways to change it for another random assignment. Firstly, at the Burthorpe Slayer Master (Turael), you can change it by asking for a new one. However, there are two snags:

  1. You cannot change Slayer assignments given by Turael.
  2. You cannot change an assignment by another master if the current monster assignment is assigned from Turael’s list.

The second way to change slayer assignments is by Slayer Rewards. If you accumulate 30 Slayer points, you have the option to switch to another task. At 100 Slayer Points, you have the option and skipping that assignment and the possibility of removing it in the process, which means that you will never receive that assignment ever again.

Slayer Masters

Each of the seven Slayer Masters will give you an assignment with a different level of difficulty, depending on the master that you speak to. Some also have requirements before you are able to get an assignment from them.

Note: The following slayer task lists are by no means all-inclusive; they only detail the most common Slayer tasks.
