So, the recent slayer updates include the introduction of slayer points after finishing 5 or more consecutive tasks.



Does this make you slayers Burthorpe less tasks (=JaGEx' intentions) or don't you care for them?



Pondering over strategies to "score" points as fast as possible, coes it work if you'd do 5 Mazchna tasks (2nd easiest) and switch to Duradel to get max points?



Discuss!

I've heard, from a player with Slayer Helm, that he did Canifis master and only switched to Duradel for 10-in-row-bonus. He also got 50 tasks bonus (225 points!)

It's worth it if you're going to do lots of slaying, but for i've nearly maxed Slayer so it'll kindo be useless for me, other than it being a nice helmet for my future slayer outfit XD

So you can you just do 5 Burthorpe tasks and then jump to any slayer master to start the points? I'm hoping yes.

And can you make the slayer helmet with a used mask or does it have to have all 10 charges? I'm guessing no.

After the 5th task your points start counting.



So just use the canifis slayer master, (as burth tasks do not count for tasks in a row, as they are the tasks that reset your counter) for the first four tasks, and then after that use whichever slayer master you prefer.



Also you have to use an uncharged black mask to make the slayer helmet.

infact you can, and that is how i am going to get the last 75 points. its a good way to avoid getting horribly long and boring tasks like black demons and warped terrorbirds. However you still run that risk anyway.





also, if you guys hadnt noticed assignments have been more frequent. You can get back to back assignments of the same thing. Also rare things are assigned more and dragons less. Ive had 3 abby demon tasks in the same day, which in all reality i have never had two in the same day.

Yup I got 175 warped terrorbirds and 135 warped terrorbirds in a row when I was doing duradel tasks =[ thank goodness i've finally got the slayer helm so I can reject those nub tasks. They give nice drops but they're a pain to kill and they hit uber high if you don't have protect range on o_O and even then they can still hit the odd 14 on you in multi combat I might add =l

I'm trying to go as long as I can without burthoping tasks. Right now I'm on 12 or 13 in a row, I don't remember. However, I'm not using Mzachna. I'm trying to get the most slayer and combat experience for my time and effort, so I'm using Sumona and Duradel like I would have had the points system not been put in place.

I suppose it does have the desired affect of making me burthope less, as i have been able to cancel 1 of my 3 consecutive dark beast tasks after finding them repetitive, and then being able to block/remove warped terrorbirds.



On about task 17 atm, been sticking to duradel all throughout.

Just getting confirmation - canceling/removing tasks does NOT reset your count correct?



ONLY Burthorping does?
