Ultimate Slayer Guide


the Ultimate Slayer is a title obtained by completing every slayer collection log item. After the wilderness update, it became a popular goal for many players as PvP can now be turned off. This guide contains all the tips and tricks to make the grind as smooth as possible.

This made tasks like Lava Strykewyrms, Revenants and Ripper demons a very safe and hassle-free task.

⬥ An overview of generally helpful slayer items/consumables/auras/relics can be found in #Overview of Slayer

⬥ Task specific guides can be found in #rs3-slayer

Daily Slayer mask tasks

⬥ There are 2 main reasons to force 1 task per day with their respective slayer masks:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Easy points that adds up over time.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Removes the need to use lower tier slayer masters.

Most important: Use slayer masks for monsters whose uniques are only obtainable on-task/have rates significantly boosted on task:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Ice strykewyrm icestrykewyrm - Staff of light

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Desert strykewyrm desertstrykewyrm - Focus sight

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Jungle strykewyrm junglestrykewyrm - Hexcrest

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Airut airut - Razorback gauntlets (Only on task)

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Abyssal demon abyssaldemon - Abyssal wand and orb (Only on task)

Note: Other slayer masks such as Mask of Kurask/Basilisks/Stone provide a boost in drop chance for their respective head items.

Task prioritisation

**Disclaimer! This section assumes the following:

⬥ You own the Slayer master cape slayercape

⬥ Laniakea laniakea is your main slayer master

⬥ You are starting with mostly empty logs

⬥ Block/Prefer lists are based on task weighing and general level of annoyance of the task**

The Slayer master cape slayercape has a perk that gives a 20% chance to choose what a new task will be from a Slayer master. There are a couple of tasks that should have priority over others. The last thing you want is having little to no points with your last item being an Edimmu pet which can be very hard to obtain.

Block and Prefer Tasks
Ask questions if you get stumped
Prefer List
• Ripper demons • Demons cluster • Strykewyrms cluster • Lava Strykewyrms • Dragons cluster • Gemstone dragons • Dinosaurs • Edimmu (see below)
Block List
• Black demons • Elves • Greater Demons • Dark beasts (after dark bow is obtained) • Aviansies • Gargoyles (after granite maul is obtained) • Vyrewatch • Crystal Shapeshifters (after elven ring is obtained)

Note: Undead cluster and Creatures of Daemonheim are also good prefer tasks to replace any monsters you finish before obtaining the edimmu pet.

Priority list if your cape procs

⬥ Priority list goes:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 1: Edimmu edimmu

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 2: Ripper demons ripperdemon Demons cluster task

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 3: Camel Warrior camelwarrior Living Wyverns livingwyvern Lava Strykewyrms lavastrykewyrm (+cluster) Dinosaurs venomousdinosaur

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 4: Nightmare creatures nightmare Creatures of the Lost Grove mossgolem vinecrawler luminoussnaggler

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 5: Ascension creatures rorarius Celestial Dragons celestialdragon

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 6: Dragon cluster task, Gemstone dragons hydrixdragon

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Tier 7: Anything that can be killed without a task and does not provide a drop boost on task (Stalker creatures, Kal'gerion demons, Tormented demons, Aquanites, Nihils, Glacors, Nodon Dragonkin...)

Note: Tasks that can be toggled with slayer points should be turned off after obtaining their relevant drops.

Farming Eddimus with Jacquelyn

If specifically going for the Eddimu pet, you want to maximise elite spawns. As each slayer task forces an elite spawn, a good way to farm them is via the slayer master Jacquelyn. This is done by killing Edimmu during a Zombie or Ghost task, which forces an Elite spawn every 15 kills with Slayer Introspection slayerintrospection. You can additionally use NPC Contact npccontact to speed this up further.

⬥ Effects which have a chance to reduce your task count may result in elite mobs not spawning

⬥ After finishing a task you may need to wait a few seconds for the elite mob to spawn

Wilderness tasks

By doing tasks in the wilderness whenever feasible, you can obtain more revenantdropenhancer for future revenant tasks.

Tasks that should be done in the wilderness during Ultimate Slayer:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Ripper demons ripperdemon

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Lava Strykewyrms lavastrykewyrm

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Abyssal Creatures abyssallord abyssalbeast abyssaldemon

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Hydrix Dragons (optional) hydrixdragon

Slayer cape perk farming

This method is focused on rolling the slayer choice perk. This is achieved with 2 slayer masters, Jacquelyn and Laniakea. The basic idea is that slayer masks prevent you from being assigned tasks that you do not want and Slayer cape perk having priority over forced tasks from masks, therefore you can simply exit the chat option if cape fails.


‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Access to lunar spellbook: Spellbook swap (Lunar) SBSLunars + NPC Contact npccontact

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Slayer master cape slayercape at all times

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Higher level slayer mask maskoftheabyss(Black demons, Airuts, Automatons etc)

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• A magic or ranged weapon with Caroming 4 caroming4

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Your blocklist should look like as you are farming slayer points with Jacquelyn


‎ ‎ ‎ ‎STEP 1: Equip your slayer mask and npccontact Laniakea.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎STEP 2: Once you have done that there are 2 things that happen:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎a) You get a slayercape proc → Do your desired task and repeat Step 1.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎b) slayercape does not proc and you are given the option of being assigned the task specific to your slayer mask. Do not accept the task and simply exit the dialog.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎STEP 3: Remove your slayer mask and npccontact Jacquelyn and do a task from her. You MUST do a task from Jacquelyn, otherwise this method does not work.
