Best and worst tasks for slayer!

As I am 99 slayer myself I will share advice about what tasks you should do and which ones arnt as enjoyable, I also assume you are using duradel or kuradel as your slayer master since these are what you should be aiming to use.

Best Tasks:
Abyssal demons - these are what most people aim for, the chance of getting a abyssal whip for free! these tasks are great but dont expect you will get a whip drop every task it is over 1/500 in chance but still it could happen.

Dark beasts - drops the dark bow, used to be over 1m but now around 400k but with the ring of wealth update these do tend to have a large variety of drops. I have recieved many rare herbs such as torstol in decent amounts aswell, around 30 in each drop, and the chance of dark bow drops seem to be of around 1/300

Strykewyrms - any of these are all good tasks! the reason I choose for this is that they can all drop elite clues aswell as their own unique drop; hexcrest for jungle, focus sight for desert and staff of light for ice, these tasks will definatly give you a decent profit.

Spiritual mages - very easy to kill and have a good chance of dragon boot drops, I average of about 2 boot drops per tasking making it easily profitable.

Metal dragons - although these can be tedious at lower levels when you have decent stats these go by very fast, just the bones are worth 4.5k each and a chance of visage (around 1/10000 though!) and dragon platelegs and plateskirts are also dropped from these, the mithril dragons can drop the dragon full helm fetching prices of over 40m.

Worst tasks:
Kalphites - these have no drops and are very boring! if you want to do this with a chance of anything the only way is to kill the kalphite queen (level 333) but this will take a very long time

Terror dogs - located in tarns layer which is a spot very hard to access except by using a charge of a ring of slayer, their best drop is the granite helm which is now only worth 40k and they hit constantly and prayer drained quickly in the area; not worth doing.

Skeletal wyverns - they are more powerful than their name suggests! they will use ice attacks stopping you attacking for awhile and hit constantly. they also require a dragonfire or elemental shield to stop them hitting incredibly high antifire shield or superantifire pots will not work here!

Suqahs - No drops!!

Aquanites - these can be unlocked with slayer points to be assigned as a task, do not do it! they attack with magic hitting accuratly even against karils armour and have a attack what disables prayer.


  1. Very nice post! Thanks for all the tips.

  2. Love to kill Spiritual mages

  3. my favourate are dark beasts :) not because of the drops but because you can afk for large amounts of time and common blue charm drops aswell

  4. my favorite are aquanites because there empty all the time :D
