Greater demon berserkers and ash lords


Greater demon variants found southwest of Elite Dungeon 2 and within the Zamorakian undercity elite dungeon are significantly stronger than standard greater demons.

⬥ The two wilderness variants of enhanced greater demons attack using melee (berserker) and magic (ash lord). The wilderness population is weaker than those found in the Zamorakian undercity and are poisonable poisonicon. Along with access to infernalpuzzlebox buffs, this makes them ideal for slayer training.

⬥ Since they don't have any unique drops, a sacrificescrim can be used for additional slayer XP. This makes greater demon berserkers and ash lords some of the best AFK slayer exp in the game.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This also means there's no reason to do them off-task.


slayer level: 1

slayer XP per kill: 7150

⬥ Optimal kills per hour: ~185 magic and range (All AFK)

⬥ Optimal slayer XP per hour: ~1.3m magic and range (All AFK)

Useful Items and Unlocks

Scrimshaw of sacrifice sacrificescrim     • Increases slayer XP gained by 1.5X and removes all drops obtained.     • Losses are negligible as demons do not have any uniques or otherwise valuable drops. ⬥ Kwuarm incense sticks kwuarmsticks     • A large portion of your damage comes from poison. ⬥ Jas demonbane arrows jasdemonbanearrow     • Best in slot demon slaying ammo if using ranged. ⬥ Demon slayer equipment demonslayercirclet     • Best in slot demon slaying armour if using ranged.     • Bring 3 pieces and 1 piece of augmented power armour with demonslayerperk and genocidal
Passive unlocks
Tier 3 guardhouse     • Due to the high amount of HP of the demons, the chance for ultimates to instakill instakill is highly beneficial for this task. ⬥ Restocking Cannon Ability     • Allows cannon restocking without user input, essential for AFKing.

Location and How to Get There

Use the dragonkin laboratory teleport or a portal attuned to the Elite dungeon via War's Retreat. Exit via the southwest to enter the wilderness.

General strategy

Enhanced greater demon variants possess high damage and cannot be recklessly AoE'd unlike many other slayer mobs. Hence, it would be best to safespot them or at most tank 2 of them at once.

⬥ Players who do not possess end game equipment may utilise a safespot west of the dungeon as shown below:

⬥ More information on cannon placement and demonstration:

⬥ Players who are well-geared and can afford to tank their attacks may run south and position themselves on a small peninsula as shown below, using a cannon to aggro the demons.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This spot allows you to lure 5 demons in total (3 ash lords + 2 berserkers), and limits the number of demons attacking you to at most 2 at once (1 Ash lord + 1 Berserker) as other demons will be stuck behind.

Method: AFK Magic/Ranged

With high end gear, both range and magic can be used to AFK the demons, at around the same rates.

⬥ When you need to repair the cannon, quickly surge out, click, and then dive back to the suggested spot.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Check that the demons did not walk in a way which gets them stuck.

**Note: ** During the initial lure, the demons may get stuck in a conformation that makes them unable to approach you, to resolve this, kill the initial wave and then walk back to the suggested spot.
