What is the point of spending all this time slaying in the hope 'sorry, change that to expectation' that Jagex will release a Slayer Monster at Lvl 95, preferably with some sort of attack that destroys any Wild Pies you have in your inventory :)



Still, Im not going to moan about any new slayer creature until I've had the ability to fight it, I would have prefered it to be a higher level, as when anything new comes out the worlds will all be full with campers desperate for the 'new drop'.

A 90+ slayer monster won't get everyone excited




If you're saying that because only a few people have 90 Slayer then I beg to differ. I don't have 90 Slayer but if they did release the monster, I would have more of an incentive to actually train Slayer again. I would be excited because Slayer wouldn't be a dead-end skill anymore, even though I wouldn't be able to access the monster right away.






Slayer is so the opposite of dead.



Between Dark Bows, Rune Boots, Charms, Herbs, Dragon Boots, Whips etc etc etc it is one of THE most widely used money makers

Considering its a mage attack and a special attack, it better be a mage weapon that has a spec.




Makes sense. Mage is due since the highest mage slayer drop is the mystic top from gargoyles and kurasks. Maybe a mist battlestaff?

Erm mist = air and water



Battlestaff = unlimtied runes of its type



mist staff = unlimited air and water



air and water = ice spells



therefore mist staff = mega cheap barraging

I would of preferred to see a 95 or something slayer monster, but 78 is still relatively high leveled as far as slayer monsters go. I'm excited as this means the drops it has will probably be worthwhile, and I love aquatic monsters so this should be fun for me.



It uses water magic though? Might have to pray on him then.

Only if it uses multiple attack types like waterfiends. Otherwise, you can just wear mage protective gear as needed.

Ice barrage uses no airs and 6 waters (which are ~16 per) so it will go down from ~1786 down to ~1690 (wikia prices ... I am lazy to make the math but if should be near those prices) ... sooo yooouu call that "mega cheap" ... its ~5% cheaper ... which isnt a lot.



and still - you can achieve the same CHEAP MEGA SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME Barrages with :

- A simple staff of water

- a mud staff

- a steam staff

- any battlestaff from the above examples ...



you were saying ?

Ice spells don't use air, just water death, blood, chaos and maybe minds with rush not sure.



Fire/air staff would be good, is it steam, or smoke, not sure.

I said dead-end, not dead. I know Slayer makes money but my point was that there is nothing special anymore after you attain a certain level, so there is no incentive to train it anymore unless you want the Skill Cape, thus it is like a "dead-end".

Nah, I don't think they'll ever make a combo staff that supplies both air and another rune.

The last magic Slayer monster we got was Spiritual Mages, at level 83. They dropped the best Slayer Armor.



Now, this one is being added to the slayer caves. The caves and the tower typically had different monsters, but they always increased their drop value as you went further. These are going to replace Kurask as the "bosses" of that slayer dungeon. So hopefully, just like Abyssals are the "boss" of the tower, they'll have something really good. =D

So let me get this straight.



78 Slayer is low

85 Slayer is medium

95 Slayer is high



Thats like saying a level 110 combat is low

126 is medium

138 is high



99 Firemaking and Strength are low because more people have that then 78 slayer.



Flawed logic if you ask me. :roll:



I think the new monster will be ok.

Dont rant about something which isnt released yet. :?




As of right now, 72809 people have 78 slayer. Over 100000 will have the level before it's released due to this advanced warning.

110 combat is gained from having level 85 combat stats (approximately). As of now there are 190873 people with 85 Attack. So yes, 110 combat is quite low, at 138 combat myself I consider myself to be slightly above the average. (I would consider a "good" combat level to be 125 or 130 minimum.)



Occasionally, Jagex releases high end skill updates. For example, there have been fairly new updates involving 90+ requirements in smithing. Construction and Summoning, both released AFTER slayer, have many things to do in the 90s. Skills like farming and slayer, that require dedication to train, need better high end activities.



Just because "relatively not many people have slayer in the 90s" doesn't mean that it's a bad idea to add one. It's motivation. Currently there is no incentive to train slayer above level 83 except for skill total - that's 10.5 million experience (525 slayer tasks) of nothing worthwhile to look forward to. Hopefully, if they're adding a new creature to the Slayer dungeon, they will add another floor and agility shortcut to the Slayer tower with a level 87/88 and 92/83 monster up there, as well as a level 95 slayer monster somewhere special.



And dragon pickaxe will definitely NOT come out with this update. A 78 slayer creature is far too easy for such a good item, it'll probably come out at the end of the dwarf series from high level monsters.



I think that this is a good way to introduce updates, but I think they gave us a bit too much information in this case. At least they kept the drop a secret.
