RS3 Slayer Guide, 1-120 Slayer

Slayer is a skill where you get assigned tasks by Slayer masters to hunt down a number of monsters. Here are the essential things that you need to know to optimise your experience:

Access to Slayer Masters


Slayer masters can have requirements, these requirements can consist of quests, combat and slayer levels. You should always use the highest levelled Slayer master. Higher level Slayer masters will reward more points upon completing a task and they will assign higher level monsters which yield more experience. Mandrith is a Wilderness Slayer master and his tasks can only be completed in Wilderness. If you do not want to have a chance of getting PKed, you can stick to Laniakea.

Access to Slayer Monsters

You can kill most of the monsters in the game from the get go but some Slayer monsters require quests or mini quests. It is beneficial to complete these quests to have the options available at your disposal.

Slayer Points

Slayer points are the lifeblood of the skill. You can use these points to unlock monsters, gear, crafting recipes and a lot of quality of life features. you can also use them to block, skip or prefer tasks. Slayer points are awarded for every completed task after the fourth consecutive task. The amount of points you get depends on your Slayer master.

It is highly recommended to complete the quest "Smoking Kills" since you only gain half the Slayer points without it.

Tasks you get from Turael or Spria do not award any points and if you use them to change your task it will reset your Slayer assignment streak, therefore making you have to complete another four assignments to receive points.

Upon completing a task assigned from Mandrith, you will receive a wilderness slayer chest.

Here is a list of Slayer masters and the amount of Slayer points they give:

This helmet is a craftable helmet which you can craft after unlocking the ability to so from the Slayer reward shop. You should save your slayer points to unlock this helmet as soon as possible. It provides a 12.5%-14.5% increase to damage and accuracy when slaying monsters on-task and it also provides additional slayer headgear effects. There are 6 versions of this helmet, each one is a direct upgrade to the previous one:

Here are some general tips for your Slayer gear:

  • Power armours are better than tank armours in most scenarios.
  • Use augmented gear and weapons if possible.
  • Cinderbane gloves are best-in-slot for poisonable monsters.
  • Demon horn necklace and its lesser variants in combination with a bonecrusher are best-in-slot for monsters that drop bones.
  • Blood amulet of fury can be used to heal of monsters if you do not have soul split.
  • For all combat styles, 2 handed weapons are better since they have more AOE abilities.
  • Luck rings are generally the best in slot for Slayer since they provide bonuses across all combat styles and they allow access to the rare drop table.
  • Vampyrism aura can be use to heal and Penance aura can be used to restore prayer points.
  • Spring cleaner is a great item to have which automatically alchs items that monsters drop.
  • Ancient elven ritual shard is a great item to use to passively restore your prayer points without any cost.
  • Dwarf multicannon and its variants are great for certain tasks.
  • Gem bag, seed bag and herb bag are great items to save inventory spots and make extra money.
  • Holy wrench is an item that passively increases the Prayer points restored from potions.
