Hey guys, this is the first Runescape Blog I've ever done. My RSN is Madouge, I've been playing for round about 6 years on and off. For a long time now Slayer has been by far my favourite activity in the game. I'm someone who finds it hard to make decisions so I relish being told what to kill by other people. I've thought for a while about doing some sort of slaying guide, however I don't think I have anymore information to offer than any of the other guides available on these forums so concluded there wasn't much point, so I'm doing this blog instead, to document my tasks and levels.

I pride myself on the fact that my Private Chat is always set to "on" and I have no one on my ignore list, I'm always open to chat.

Here is a picture of my levels at the start of this blog:

As you can see I've already achieved 99 melee stats thanks to slayer, I don't remember when I got them, but I remember that I got 99 Attack first, on a bloodveld task, followed by 99HP using the exp lamps from WGS. 99 Defence was next, I got that on a Dust Devil assignment. The most recent 99, Strength, was obtained on a Gargoyle assignment.

Since I maxed my melees, I've moved onto ranged, so I'll be ranging all my slayer tasks (I haven't used a whip in slayer for soooo long). Those which are too difficult to range I'll either cancel or just use melee and be resentful of my slayer master for a while. I'll try and get pictures of all the good drops I get and my levels.

BANK PIC! - Warning, very big



What I wanna do is, each time I get a task I haven't covered in this blog, I wanna just post a picture of the setup I used to kill them. If it get's too picture intensive I'll change that format.

List of past tasks since this blog was started:
198 Nechryael
46 Steel Dragons
177 Abyssal Demons
163 Gargoyles
239 Black Demons
124 Blue Dragons
164 Spiritual Mages
164 Warped Tortoises
81 Steel Dragons
9 Mithril Dragons
205 Gargoyles
174 Nechryael
211 Dagannoth
230 Spiritual Mages
139 Hellhounds
204 Gargoyles
109 Jungle Strykewyrms
88 Tzharr
149 Ice Strykewyrms
247 Waterfiends
69 Terror Dogs
79 Steel Dragons
223 Black Demons
191 Gargoyles
165 Warped Tortoises
66 Skeletal Wyverns
60 Terror Dogs
188 Hellhounds
229 Abyssal Demons

Current Task: 241 Gargoyles

These are the tasks I have blocked:

-Warped Terrorbirds - someone told me to
-Living Rock Creatures - Great exp but they're so boring
-Bloodvelds - Yawn city

Slayer gear


Noteworthy Drops

I'm open to suggestions on stuff to include on my blog, if anyone else is training Ranged through slayer, add me. We can swap tactics, info about safespots, whatever.

It's really easy to slay gargoyle scum after you've bought the "quick final hit" technique or whatever, I don't need to leave my safespot to finish them off anymore. Shame it'll only really help for gargoyles.

Got 97 Ranged on my latest Steel Dragon, missed the message though because of the constant barrage of fire.

I dunno, move onto Magic I guess, though at that point it'll start costing me quite a lot of money, unless I get a staff of light and some battle robes. If magic gets too expensive I'll aim for 99 slayer and just melee everything.

i got 99 range threw slayer and i can tell you one thing it was hell. This is just a little advice you don't have to follow just my personal opinion. I preferred tank gear when i was training range so i didn't have to safe spot and so i didn't have to pick up ammo. This saved me tons of time instead of having to get monsters in the right spot,picking up ammo, and waiting for a monster to spawn. other than that good luck and happy slaying :D

Hey Wiveren1, I saw your blog, pretty impressive. Honestly, I quite like safespotting, I enjoy having to be quite tactical in trying to find the best spot. I've gotten from around 91 to 97 and I'm still quite enjoying it so I think I'll just stick it out. Did you get 99 Magic through Slayer? I would love to hear tips on that if you had any.

ok what ever makes you happy :D and i did lmao... it was a huge slap in the face when hex and focus came out. ice worms have brought me to 16 mill mage exp... at first i used slayer darts because u get points to buy them from the tasks u did. I was safe spotting in infinity robes and zammy book I'm cheep >.> well was. Once i hit about 90 mage i was using fire wave with an arcane sheild and used most of my slayer drops for rune money. I used an air staff because i had tons of fires from dustys, fire giants and greater demons. If there is anything i can tell you its that you should do slayer bolt till 75 then only mage ice worm tasks with fire wave, and fire sure when you can. The exp gotten from ice worm tasks are insane. Gl on the rest of your slayer days.

I'm mage slaying right now using ahrim's, switching between claws of guthix and wind surge. It's really expensive and the only way I'm able to sustain it is by farm runs and MTK everyday. I'll be range slaying when I hit 99 Summoning. :thumbup: Good luck.

To put it bluntly, [bleep] off.

If I do end up mage slaying, would it be worth buying battle robes to save money, or is it not worth losing the benefits of the hexcrest and other Mage equipment

Got sick of using chinchompas, not really for me. I decided to mage the rest of my Nechryael to get a taste for what mage slaying would be like. Conclusion: expensive, though I did get this:
