Hello, after being too lazy to train anything else on the game i thought i'd get 99 slayer. Love the cape, it's just awesome.

I'm currently 85 (292k to 86) and i want to ask some slayer masters here, do you remember or could you advice me on how long it would take from my level? I play 6 hours a day (not straight :P) always got super pots, bunyips, etc.. with me to fasten up the tasks. Let me know if i missed anything.

My attack, strength, def and hp are 99. Prayer is 81 so i think that should be good for slaying.

Would 3 months do at that rate? 4? 5? 6? a whole year? :(

Just for reference, what tasks are you doing and skipping?

I might be way off here but I was 85 in April and I achieved 99 in October with perhaps 2/3 month break in between so perhaps 3 months? Similiar stats and items but I played longer than 6 hours a day >_<

The only annoying tasks for me right now are Abberant spectres, waterfiends, and jungle strykworks. Those are the only ones i skip for now.

Those are all good tasks though, and Ab specs give some of the fastest slay xp possible.

I can't say I have 99 slay, but in my experience, levelling slayer relies on 2 concepts: 1) cannoning effectively and as often as possible, 2) canceling/blocking correctly.

You want to block the 5 slowest tasks, except maybe miths which some people will argue are short enough anyway, so the fast points make up for the slow xp, allowing you more cancels. If using Kuradal (which you have no reason not to), you would want to block a slow*er* task, like perhaps waterfiends, if you have the points to. If not, just do them, as they give average xp and good rewards.

As a 99 slayer I have one or two tips for you -

  • Use prayers.
  • Use a cannon wherever possible.
  • Invest in extremes if you can.

I personally turmoil'ed all my tasks, using soul split to heal. I'd normally fill most of my inventory with prayer potions and then stick on berserker + turmoil and i'd be off.
If you can't use turmoil then even using the highest strength and attack prayers on the normal prayerbook would still help.

Makes a HUGE difference.

I see people asking how many months levelling up would take all the time.
No one can answer these, only you can.

It all depends have efficiantly you are playing, and how many hours a day. All you need to know is the average xp/h and how many hours per day you play.


As Zaaps said, don't block Aberrant Specters, as even when cannoning them, they usually produce a profit. Great xp, too.
If you are not 99 summoning, don't block waterfiends either.

It's just waterfiends are always 150-200 and that's too much, i can't really afford the prayer for so much kills.

Same goes for abberant spectres, but thanks for the cannon idea guys, come to think of it it really does make stuff faster.

Waterfiends profit, though, so cost isn't too big of an issue there.

They're also not too slow...but I use a maul. On that note, if you're planning on training dungeoneering at any point you might want to do it early on in your slayer plans and get a rapier/ls to speed it up considerably

Try something like this: get an average for a week or so of slaying and see what you come up with.Now bump that up with turmoil/canooning certain tasks(if you are reluctant to using a cannon only do it for monsters like blue dragons/spectres/irons/steels).See how much that bumps the average by then it'll be easy to calculate.

Thanks for the suggestions so far people, really appreciate it.

Should i skip tasks such as iron, steel, and black dragons? Since i don't have rapier and such i use a leaf-bladed sword and it doesn't do such a good job.

No either use Korsai or ZS.


Anyways here's my two cents:

I'm currently going for 99 slayer too (Currently 760k or so from 95) and in about 6 hours play time I can average 100K slayer exp +. If you can average that then just divide the amount of exp you want by the 100k. For me I have 5M slayer exp to go til I hit 99, therefore it'll take me roughly 50 days of laid back, 100K a day slayer.

Cannon everything you can.
Piety/Turmoil anything you can.
Use extremes whenever you can if you don't have them, get them.

Going from 92-93 I invested 7M into cannonballs and prayer potions (I cannon everything and anything, even single combat stuff if I can... If I can't then I'll piety it) and I made back 22M. So don't worry about the cost of things.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

100k in 6 hours is a pretty low average by the way, the time includes (that I know of) also daily assists, pengs, circus perhaps some shop/farm runs etc. (not sure what Ezkaton does). Vex got an average of 37k/hr over about 3.6m xp doing only slayer.

I don't really rush slayer, it seems more fun to just do a few tasks when you get bored. I sometimes get hooked to it and do it for a week then go back to casually slaying. I still cannon, use overloads, and turmoil on all tasks possible. The thought of doing slayer for 6+ hours strait irks me though.

I suggest getting Rapier, enough gp for a stash of 10k+ cannonballs, extremes, and piety/turmoil with a nice stock of prayer potions before you get serious about slaying.

I decided to become a slayer because 99 seemed to be an impossible goal.

Unfortunately I reached this goal after a few years. Slayer was introduced in 2005. And that is when I started.

It actually took me 5 years

In hindsight I am a bit regretful about rushing slayer at some times.

That said. I never used piety to go through tasks. Just flashed. I did it all very old school. Only started using a cannon past level 95.

And actually regret using a cannon.

Take your time. Do it your way. Once you get 99 it is over.

I did. And sometimes I still do. I have 14+M slayer exp.

But somehow it has lost the special feeling.

Still 187m to go. D:

OT: I'd just do pretty much what LowC said, stock up on pots, cballs etc and just blast your way through it.
However, you can just slay without cannon and piety/turm to make good money.
You can always make your money first, then with the profit buy cballs and ppots to gain better exp.
It's all about personal preference at the end of the day though.
Exp/efficieny or more profit and just casually doing. ;)
