Welcome to my complete level 1 – 99 Slayer Guide.
Slayer is a skill that is trained by killing monsters that are assigned as tasks from various Slayer Masters.
Leveling it up unlocks monsters that you cannot normally deal damage to,
with some higher level Slayer monsters being some of the greatest money makers in the game.
This guide will take you through all of the basics and knowledge of Slayer, as well as tips, items and mechanics that you will need to know in order to train effectively.
I will be going over 5 main training styles of Slayer. If you miss anything, or need to freshen up your knowledge on something more specific, just scroll and find the heading that you need.
1. How Slayer Works
Training your Slayer level is a great skill for your account for a number of reasons. On your way to level 99 Slayer, you will get or be very close to level 99 in a lot of the Combat Stats.
Also, you can take advantage of the massive damage and accuracy boost of the Slayer Mask, which gives higher XP rates than attacking normal monsters.
Speaking to one of the 8 Slayer Masters will assign you with a number of a certain monster to kill. This is called a Slayer Task, and you can only have one Slayer Task at a time.
Upon getting your first Slayer task, you will receive an Enchanted Gem, which allows you to check your current Slayer Task, as well as how many you have to kill.
Each Slayer Master in Old School Runescape assigns monsters from their own task list, and high level Masters give harder and longer tasks.
Some Slayer Monsters require items and gear in order to be able to kill them. For example, Killerwatts – you need to be wearing Insulated Boots.
These items can all be bought from any Slayer Master.
Upon killing a monster on your Slayer Task, you receive Slayer XP equivalent to the total number pf Hitpoints that the monster has. So, this means that you will need to deal around 13 000 000 damage points to your Slayer Task monsters to get level 99 Slayer.
By right clicking any Slayer Master, you can view the available Slayer rewards, and these range from new tasks unlocks to item unlocks, and Slayer perks. But, I will talk a lot more about these further into the article.
2. Slayer Masters
There are currently 8 Slayer Masters.
Two of them have no Slayer, or Combat level requirements, while the rest gradually move their way up in Combat requirements. Each Slayer Master has its own benefits and reasons for choosing to get tasks from them. These are the most important things you need to know about the masters.
Turael can be used to replace another harder Slayer Task at the expense of resetting your Slayer Task streak.
Krystilia assigns Slayer Tasks that can only be completed within the Wilderness, and her tasks have a separate task streak to regular Slayer. Despite the fact that she has no requirements, she assigns very difficult tasks. So, even as a level 3, you could get something really hard like Black Dragons.
Mazchna is a good option for low level players, since he will mostly assign Slayer Tasks in the Morytania Slayer Tower or close by to him.
The guy you first meet on Tutorial Island, Vannaka, fills the gap between 40 and 70 Combat.
There is Chaedlar. With level 70 Combat, this is the first Master that gives a good amount of Slayer Points per task.
There is the newly introduced Konar, assigning Slayer Tasks at a specific location, with a twist of dropping keys to the Brimstone Chest that has a range of rewards useful for Ironmen.
Nieve, or Steve if you have done Monkey Madness 2, assigns high level tasks, and is one of the only 3 Slayer Masters that can assign Boss tasks.
This leads me to the last Slayer Master, requiring 100 Combat and 50 Slayer, Duradel.
3. Useful Quests and Unlocks
Slayer itself can be started at any Combat level and has no requirements to start, apart from being a Member. Leveling the skill up is a great way to train at any Combat level. But, to be effective and get fast Slayer XP, I recommend having at least a Combat level of 70, using Chaedlar.
There is a large variety of Quests in Old School Runescape that will contribute to speeding up your Slayer XP, as well as unlocking new tasks and teleports.
On the screen right now are all the quests that unlock new Slayer Tasks. As you can see, there are 2 categories – recommended, and optional. You should definitely do the recommended quests, since those monsters are vital for getting the fastest possible XP rates. With the optional ones, they are actually more likely to slow down your XP rate, with more tedious tasks. So, these ones should be avoided unless you have already done the quest, or you are going for the Quest Cape.
There is also a range of quests that unlock things that are very useful for your Slayer training. First and foremost, completing the Dwarf Cannon Quest allows you to use the Dwarf Multi-cannon, which considerably speeds up the efficiency of Slayer. The Lost City, Priest in Peril and Shilo Village Quests all unlock different Slayer Masters.
Fairy Rings teleportation from Fairytale Part 2 is extremely useful in Slayer, and the Elemental Shield from the Elemental Workshop is needed for Wyverns. Lunar Diplomacy can allow you to use NPC contact, allowing you to contact your Slayer Masters from anywhere, and I also highly recommend completing the Slug Menace Quest to unlock the full Proselyte Armour set.
For new or low level players, by completing the Varrock Museum Quiz, you can gain 1000 Slayer XP, which takes about 5 minutes to do. I really recommend doing this at a low level, as it takes you straight to level 9 Slayer. To get started on that, make your way downstairs in the Varrock Museum.
Along with the quest, there are 3 non-combat skills I recommend you train in order to speed up your Slayer.
Firstly, having a high Construction level with a complete Player Owned House will really increase your efficiency.
On the screen, I have included the most important house components when relating to Slayer. The most note-worthy one is the Occult Altar for swapping between Ancients and Lunars for Bursting and NPC Contact.
With 54 Crafting, you can create the Slayer Helmet, and that also costs 400 Slayer Points at any Slayer master to learn how to make them.
Having at least 71 Crafting allows you to boost with mushroom pies to level 75 in order to create Slayer Rings, which must first be unlocked from a Slayer Master as well.
These rings provide super close teleports to lots of Slayer locations, as well as one right next to Nieve or Steve.
The final skill that can speed up your Slayer XP is Agility, and by getting 87 Agility or 82 if you use Summer Pies, you would have unlocked every Slayer shortcut in the game.
Some of the higher level ones can save you a lot of time in the long run – like the Fremennik Slayer Cave shortcuts,
the Kalphite Queen shortcut,
or the Baby Green Dragon shortcut.
4. Combat Training XP
As I mentioned, you will be doing a lot of Combat training through to 99 Slayer. Most players choose to use Melee when they are slaying due to its high damage and usually 0 cost per attack.
Ranged is also a great option for those that can afford it. Although, solely doing Magic for Slayer training will drain your money.
If you cannoned as many tasks as possible going from 1 – 99 Slayer, you would get around 90 – 95 Ranged.
There are also a variety of tasks that can be Bursted or Barraged for faster XP rates, since they can be stacked and killed really, really quickly.
5. Slayer Gear/ Weapons
Moving into the Slayer Gear and Weapons.
Firstly, one of the most important items for Slayer are Expeditious Bracelets and Bracelets of Slaughter.
The Expeditious Bracelets will overall shorten the number of monsters in your task by 25%, with 30 charges per bracelet.
On the flip side, Bracelets of Slaughter will increase the length of your task.
These are fantastic for a number of reasons. Being able to shorten your task lets you do tasks that are not worth blocking or skipping, but are still decent XP.
Whereas, the Slaughter lets you extend fast XP tasks like Burstable tasks.
In terms of armour,
first and foremost, you should at all times be wearing a Slayer Helmet or Slayer Mask. A Slayer Mask can be bought off the Grand Exchange, whereas the Slayer Helmet is an unlock-able reward, as I explained earlier.
The benefit of the Helmet is that it combines the Slayer Headgear with the boost of the Slayer mask, allowing you to use it for things like Aberrant Spectres or Banshees.
Wearing it gives a 16.667% Melee and damage accuracy boost on your Slayer task monster.
The helmet or mask can be imbued at the Nightmare Zone with 1 250 000 points, it gives the helmet an additional 15% damage and accuracy boost to magic and ranged as well.
When it comes to armour, there are 3 categories I like to place gear into – Melee and Ranged Defence, Magic Defence and Prayer Gear. I’m not going to go through every item slot. But, I will give you a good idea of how you should be gearing up for Slayer.
For Melee, at least Runite Armour is best for Ranged and Melee Defence, and you should focus on increasing your Strength bonus, with items like the Torso or Bandos Chestplate.
For Magic Defence, your best Dragonhide or Karil’s gear works great.
Although, avoid using Armadyl because it gives a negative melee bonus.
For Prayer, Monk Robes are a good start. Then, Proselyte gives the highest bonus in slot.
For the Ranged attack style, it is recommended to safe spot monsters that deal a lot of damage, and you cannot be very Melee or Ranged Defensive when using Ranged. So, for Magic Defence, most Ranged gear, including Void, gives a great Magic Defence.
For Prayer, Blessed Dragonhide provides a small Prayer bonus with a great Ranged bonus or some players choose to use the God Vestment Robes or Monk Robes for considerably higher Prayer bonuses.
For Magic, it is best to focus on Magic damage boosting gear like the Occult Necklace, Tormented Bracelet and Ancestral. You do not really need a defensive setup for Magic.
You should focus on a combination between Prayer bonus and Magic bonuses, since for your burst-able tasks, you will certainly be using Protection Prayers.
God Vestment Robes give both a Magic and Prayer bonus, as well as a lot of other Magic gear like God Books, God Capes and the Tormented Bracelet.
You should also try and get your Imbued Rings. The three best ones are the Imbued Berserker Ring for Melee, Imbued Archers and Imbued Ring of the Gods when you are using Prayer.
Weapons wise for melee, there are two categories of training weapons – strength training weapons and attack or defence training weapons.
For strength, the Rapier is the best in slot. For the others, I have made some of them in red so you can distinguish between the ones that degrade and cost money per attack. Personally, I think the Abyssal Dagger is a good middle ground weapon in terms of price and damage. But, it really depends on the best one you can afford.
For attack and defence, you have some better options. The trusty Abyssal Whip can be used for attack or defence training. But, it cannot solely be used for strength. The Hasta is great for tasks weak to stab, especially Dragons. Once again, the Saradomin Sword and Dragon Scimitar with the Dragon Defender are good cheap options.
When it comes to Ranged, you are going to have to spend a bit more money, since good ammo costs a lot. The Blowpipe costs approximately 120 coins per shot, and that is only in scales. The Karil’s Crossbow is an awesome cheaper alternative, whereas a lot of lower level players and Ironmen will choose the Rune Crossbow with Broad Bolts or Bone Crossbow.
As for Magic, you should aim for Staves and Wands, giving the best Magic damage boost. The Ahrim’s Staff is a great cheap option now, since it is only one handed and also has a 5% damage boost. For those that can afford it, the best in slot is the Kodai Wand.
Along with your regular armour setups and weapons, there are few more useful items that you should bring along.
Firstly, Guthans can be used as a healing setup. With the 1 in 4 chance of your damage healing you, it allows you to stay at your tasks longer, and also make them semi AFK.
A better, however more expensive alternative, is the Saradomin Godsword special attack, which heals 50% of what you hit plus 25% of what you hit goes to your Prayer Points.
As I have mentioned, a Dwarf Multi-cannon will also considerably speed up your kills, and in your inventory of course, you will need to bring cannon balls.
I like to bring at least 1000 at the start of a task. Also, when slaying, for the best XP rates you should bring along super combats or ranging potions, along with Prayer potions, a one click teleport, preferably to your house, and some high level food. My favourites are Monkfish, Potato and Cheese, and Chocolate Cakes, which heal 5 per slice.
6. Slayer Tasks and Info
Moving onto Slayer Tasks, and in terms of where you should kill monsters, it depends on your training style, which I will talk more about soon.
There are a lot of Slayer Task only areas across Runescape, as well as a lot of great Slayer locations that do not need you to be on task. I am quickly going to go over the best areas now.
Firstly, is the Slayer Tower, located west of Canifis, and it holds a wide variety of Slayer monsters that can be killed off task.
If you go down the ladder near the entry, you can find the Slayer only part of the cave, with 4 different Slayer monsters.
There is the Slayer only Kalphite Lair, located west of the Shantay Pass, and does not require a rope upon entry.
The Fremennik Slayer Dungeon, located west of Rellekka or north of Camelot has a lot of monsters that can only be found in that dungeon – like Kurasks, Turoths and Cockatrice.
There is the Chasm of Fire, containing Lesser, Greater and Black Demons, with a lot in a cannon-able area.
The Stronghold Slayer cave, located next to Nieve or Steve used to contain almost every Slayer monster until an update a couple of years ago, where now it contains 5 different Slayer monsters.
Lastly, the Catacombs of Kourend, a non-cannon-able multi-combat area great for bursting your Slayer tasks.
While these areas are the Slayer places to do your Slayer Tasks, there are a lot of alternative monsters you can kill on your task that will still give you Slayer XP and count towards your total kill count.
Things like Demonic Gorillas can be killed instead of Black Demons for a far bigger profit.
Greater Demons count as the Zamorak Boss, K’ril Tsutaroth, and Trolls can be done at Ice Trolls for great loot.
Deciding whether you want to kill an alternative monster depends on your Slayer training style, whether you want XP, money or AFK tasks, which I will talk more about soon.
On the topic of Slayer Tasks, there are a few monsters that you might find yourself running past or going near that you should avoid at all costs. Aberrant Spectres, Banshees, Dust Devils and Smoke Devils will drain your stats very quickly if you do not have their respective piece of Slayer equipment. So, if you are ever running past these for example the Spectres or Banshees in the Catacombs, always keep in mind that you will be completely drained and might die if you do not have these pieces of equipment with you.
7. Slayer Points
Upon finishing 5 Slayer Tasks in a row, you begin gaining Slayer Points.
The number of Slayer Points you get varies a lot with each Slayer Master, with the most points coming from Duradel, Konar and the Wilderness master.
You get extra points for every 10th, 50th, 100th, with each one being a different multiplier to the base number of Slayer Points.
With the points, by right clicking any master, you can view the rewards,
and there is a variety of things you can buy.
They fall into 5 categories – task extensions, task unlocks, item unlocks, buying items and task management.
Task extension is pretty self-explanatory. You can make some tasks longer in exchange for Slayer Points.
Task Unlocks allow Slayer Masters to assign tasks they could not normally assign.
You can unlock items like the Slayer Ring, Slayer Helmet and its recolours as well.
Task management includes blocking and skipping your Slayer Tasks without penalty to your overall task count.
In terms of unlocking these Slayer rewards, I advise a few specific ones to unlock first. The most important one at the beginning is Superior Slayer monsters, known as Bigger and Badder in the rewards shop.
This unlocks a small chance that the monster you kill on your Slayer task will turn into a Superior Slayer Monster, which has some very valuable drops. But, more importantly, it give thousands of XP on death – 10 times its Hitpoints. These foe can be a little harder, and since they have more Hitpoints than their normal version, each kill is almost 30 kills in Slayer XP, which is a lot.
Next on the unlock order, you should block Slayer Tasks, which I will talk about in the training section more. But, basically, you should choose tasks that have a high task waiting, depending on your Slayer training style.
Then, you should unlock Slayer Rings or the Slayer Helmet next, depending on your Crafting level.
Then, extending the best tasks for your training style and if you are an Ironman, you can consider unlocking the Herb Sack or Broad Bolt making somewhere early on, as they will help along the way.
8. Training Styles
Moving into probably the most important part of this guide – the Slayer training styles.
There are 5 styles I am going over – firstly, for beginners Slayer training, for fast Slayer XP, for the best profit, for AFK Slayer training and lastly to farm Slayer Points.
The main thing that changes within each style is the recommended Slayer Master, weapon and Combat style, where you do the task, and which tasks you choose to block and skip.
For beginners, Slayer is a great way to get a taste of how the skill works, as well as get your Slayer Task count up so that you can start earning more and more points at a higher level.
Before you start slaying as a beginner, you should have at least 40 Combat in my opinion. A Black mask and a Cannon will really speed up your Slayer tasks.
You will only want to use Turael and Mazchna at a low level. The fastest way to Turael is a Games Necklace,
and Mazchna can be reached with only Priest in Peril and by using a Fenkenstrain’s Castle teleport tablet.
Although you do unlock Vannaka at level 40, he assigns far more difficult and longer Slayer tasks like Blue Dragons and Bronze Dragons.
If you are around the level 60 mark, he is a good option, and the fastest ways there are a Glory to Edgeville
or using a Paddewwa Teleport if you have done Desert Treasure, which takes you right into the Edgeville Dungeon.
The Wilderness Master is also available at level 3 with no requirements. But, I recommend only doing that for Slayer Point farming, which I will talk about soon.
To get to your Slayer Tasks, these are all the teleports you should buy or obtain to get to the monsters the quickest. Fairy Rings are fantastic for low level Slayer if you have unlocked them, and a few Games Necklaces will help as well.
Now, for getting the fastest Slayer XP possible when training,
and this can be done through Bursting and extending these burst-able Slayer tasks by using a Bracelet of Slaughter to make the best XP tasks extremely long. Combining that with an Expeditious Bracelet and a cannon on tasks that do not have great XP rates, and then skipping the absolute slowest tasks, regardless of how profitable they are, is the best way to get Slayer XP.
Also, since Duradel gives the longest Slayer tasks in the game, he is the best master to use for good Slayer XP. In order to do all of this, I recommend at least 70 in the Combat Stats.
You will need Ancient Magic, which requires Desert Treasure,
and you will need to do Lunar Diplomacy for the Lunar Spellbook.
Ancients allows you to burst multiple enemies at once,
while the Lunar Spellbook allows you to use NPC contact,
making contacting Duradel almost instant.
An almost max player owned house is extremely useful here, since you can use an Occult Altar to easily swap Spellbooks, as well as place teleports to the Catacombs of Kourend and a Fairy Ring.
At lower levels, the Zanaris Slayer Master and Nieve or Steve are still great for fast experience, and will give similar tasks to Duradel with some variation. It is not at all recommended that you do Konar for fast Slayer XP, simply because she assigns a lot in a restrictive area, where you can neither burst nor cannon your tasks.
The areas in which you want to do your tasks are in multi-combat areas or cannon-able areas.
The best multi-combat place for bursting is the Catacombs of Kourend, which holds 2 Slayer tasks that I really suggest extending – Dust Devils and Nechryaels. You can also burst Smoke Devils, Abyssal Demons and Ankous and Hellhounds if you get creative in the Catacombs.
Any Slayer Tasks that can be found in the Stronghold Slayer Cave, the Chasm of Fire, the Kalphite Hive and things like Dagannoths, Suqahs and Trolls can all be cannoned, and the goal is to finish those tasks as quickly as possible, since they do not give anywhere near as good XP as the burst-able tasks. So, you should bring the Expeditious Bracelet.
In terms of tasks that you want to skip and block, it is monsters that are slow regardless of loot. This includes things like Wyverns, Black Demons, Fire Giants, Greater Demons, and Ankous, all types of Dragons and Kurasks and Turoths. These are tasks that you should skip, and you can block some of the high weighted tasks like Black Demons, Fire Giants or Steel Dragons.
When bursting you Slayer tasks, you want to bring a fast attacking ranged weapon like darts with you to round up all of the monsters around you. Then, you can use a wall to run back and forth, and stack up all of the monsters to easily burst every single one of them.
Slaying for Money
Now for the money making training style for Slayer,
and the basis of this one is that you should not be bursting or using a cannon, and you will be skipping the tasks that give no drops, no matter how fast they are.
You will also try to be doing Clues and Bossing wherever you can.
The best Slayer Masters for money are Konar, Nieve and Duradel, and more skilled players can make a lot of money from the Wilderness Slayer Master.
Slayer tasks from Konar have a chance of dropping Brimstone Keys, which are used to open the chest near Konar. Inside the chest, you can get up to and over 500 000 in loot. There are a few extra quests I recommend trying to do, which unlock some very big money making tasks.
Cabin fever for Jungle Horrors, Monkey Madness 2 or Demonic Gorillas, Dragon Slayer 2 for Rune Dragons and I also recommend Lizardmen for killing Shamans.
Tasks that make bank are things like Brutal Black Dragons instead of Black Dragons., doing Kurasks, Green Dragons, Ice Trolls, Aberrant Spectres, Wyverns, Gargoyles and all of the high level Slayer monsters. You should do Boss Tasks, which are unlock-able at Slayer Masters, and you should try to go out of your way to do harder variants. There are quite a lot of bosses that you can do on a standard Slayer task.
Monsters that you will want to block are things like Suqahs, Hellhounds, if you do not like Clues, Waterfiends or lesser Demons – monsters that have little to no drops.
As I mentioned, you can do the Wilderness Slayer master, Krystilia, for a decent profit if you are good at avoiding PKers. On any Wilderness task, the monster you are killing has a chance of dropping a Tier 1 Mysterious Emblem, which currently goes for 165 000 on the Grand Exchange.
Also, some of her tasks are really profitable – up to 100 Green Dragons, 60 Lava Dragons
– as well as tasks for the Wilderness Demi Bosses.
The next training style I would like to talk about is AFK slaying,
which involves either fighting aggressive monsters, monsters that you can stack up in multi-combat, or by using a cannon.
Aggressive monsters stay aggressive for 10 – 20 minutes, depending on the area and the monster. Some notable tasks that you can AFK aggressively are Hellhounds, Trolls, or Kalphite Soldiers.
Monsters that you can stack up is anywhere in a multi-combat area – like the Catacombs of Kourend.
Using a cannon, you can AFK for up to around 5 minutes at a time just as long as the task is cannon-able, which more than half of the Slayer Tasks are.
Defence wise, some players choose to use their Prayer setup, where they have full Proselyte and Protect from Melee, which lasts around 10 minutes for 70 Prayer Points. Additionally, some players choose to use high Defence gear or Guthans for the passive healing effect.
In terms of blocking and skipping tasks, you want to skip things like Basilisks, Gargoyles or Kraken – things that require a lot of clicking and focus.
Slaying for Points
Now I would like to explain how to farm Slayer Points, and you can do so with 2 different methods.
Firstly, the Wilderness Slayer Master. As I mentioned, her tasks are on a separate task count. But, once you do 5 Wilderness tasks and start earning points, you get ridiculous amounts of points, especially at the milestones.
Most of the tasks you get given are relatively fast as well if you are willing to use a cannon. When you bring along you cannon, I suggest at maximum taking 500 cannonballs.
I suggest gearing up with 2 different types of setups – one for above 20 Wilderness, and one for below 20 Wilderness. That is because above 20 Wilderness, any untradeables that you lose on death will completely disappear and you cannot get them back.
This includes things like Void, the Fighter Torso, or Fire or Infernal Cape. So, you need one setup for below level 20 Wilderness with these untradeable, and one above without.
It is recommended to block or skip spiritual creatures or any tasks that you would like to avoid – things like bears or ants, since they are quite slow tasks.
A slightly slower way to farm points is by boosting with Turael, and by this I mean you do regular Slayer tasks at Turael until you reach one of the point milestones, and I would suggest every 10th task.
Then, on that 10th task, you should do it at the highest point Slayer Master you can, which is most likely Konar. Since Turael tasks take literally 2 – 5 minutes when you use a cannon, you can do 9 tasks in a really short time. After that, you can do one bigger, long task for over 90 points. In the future, I do plan to make an in depth Slayer Point Boosting Guide. So, keep your eyes peeled for that.
9. Tips and Tricks
So, that is all of the different training styles. Now I have some tips and tricks that can be used throughout these training styles to better your slaying experience.
When you are using a cannon in a single combat area, it attacks all of the monsters as if it is multi-combat if you are in a safe spot. This works really well in the Stronghold Slayer Cave if you use Ranged.
The Bones to Peaches tablets are not only useful for bossing.
You can take tablets along to Slayer Tasks like Hellhounds in order to stay there forever.
With there being a requirement of starting Dragon Slayer to use anti-dragon shields and potions, you can now avoid any dragon tasks by not starting the quest. This can help you to skip those really long Blue, Iron and Steel Dragon tasks at lower levels.
When on a Turoths or Kurasks Slayer task, always use the Leaf Bladed Battleaxe, since it gives as invisible 17.5% damage and accuracy boost for both of these monsters.
Also, despite these monsters only being vulnerable to Leaf Bladed weaponry, you can still use a Saradomin Godsword and you get the Hitpoints and Prayer Points based on what you would have hit.
If you get assigned a JAD task, and do not feel up for the challenge, you can go in and out of the Fight Caves without completing any waves to instantly skip your task. This does not use any Slayer Points, and it will not reset your task count.
If you have not imbued any rings or other imbue-able items, and you get Black Demons or Trolls as a Slayer task, you can complete them in the Nightmare Zone, AFKing with some of the available bosses.
Lastly, if you are bursting or you are AFKing, and you need to get the attention of a lot of monsters, the Dinh’s Bulwark special attack works really well inside the Catacombs of Kourend especially, and it only uses 50% of your special attack.
10. Duo Slayer
I would like to briefly go over Duo Slayer, which is only available to regular accounts – so, not Ironmen.
Basically, a side feature of an Enchanted Gem or any item with an Enchanted Gem in it, like a Slayer Helm or Ring,
allows you to set up a partner.
The partner with the highest Slayer level must get the Slayer task, and if the lower level player has unlocked the task you will both get exactly the same number of that Slayer monster to kill. You both do not share the same kill count, however. You both need to kill your own, like a regular Slayer Task. But, it allows you to chat and play around with a friend with the same Slayer task. You do not share any XP with your friend either. So, it is a little but underwhelming. But, it is pretty awesome if you get Boss tasks.
11. Ironman Tips
Now, for the final informative segment of this guide, Ironman Slayer Tips.
So many Slayer Tasks are outstanding for Ironmen in terms of gathering supplies, as well as unlocking new items and weapons like the Occult Necklace and the Abyssal Whip. So many Slayer Tasks give great amounts of resources like seeds, herbs, bones and Alchables.
Using a cannon is not often done by Ironmen, simply due to the amount of time you have to spend making cannonballs. Higher level Ironmen can skip the tasks that give little to no resources or bad XP rates. I mentioned earlier, from Slayer you can get the Herb Sack, one of the best essentials for an Ironman player in their journey to 99 Herblore.
A lot of the information I have mentioned in this guide is relevant to Ironmen as well. But, the main thing that you need to take out of this is that you should focus more on those tasks that give resources and skip the longer worthless tasks.
12. Guide Summary
The final section of my Slayer Guide is a quick summary.
Overall, Slayer is a members’ skill I highly recommend doing for a number of reasons like profit, combat training and efficiency. If you missed any information, I really suggest going back and having a better look. As a quick summary, there are five main types of ways you can train Slayer in my opinion. For beginners, for fast XP, for profit, for AFK training and lastly, for farming Slayer Points. It is really up to you which styles you would like to choose. But, realistically, you will be swapping through these quite commonly on the way to 99.
Anyways, that is my complete level 1 – 99 Slayer Guide. Be sure to check out the brand new Slayer themed merch. The link will be at the end of this article. There are new designs and products that are added every single month.
