I haven't played in years and don't remember much of anything, or know what has been going on since I've left. In any case, what type of melee armour should one be wearing for slayer? Melee stats 92/89/89

Full proselyte, full slayer helmet, rune defender, d boots, barrows gloves, fury, rapier. Piety all task if you are in for the speed.

My lame drops:
6 Effigys
1 D Med - 1 D Dagger
1 Verac's Helmet - 1 Guthan's Platebody

full slayer helmet

fire cape

amulet of fury

barrows gloves

dragon boots

ferocious ring / berserker ring (i)


for the chest and leg slot:

karil's top and bottom for waterfiends

bandos chestplate and tasset for all other kuradal's tasks


for the weapon and shield slot:

chaotic longsword > chaotic rapier > abyssal whip + dragonfire > body > mind > elemental shield for skeletal wyverns

chaotic maul > saradomin sword > zamorakian spear for waterfiends

chaotic rapier + rune defender > zamorakian spear > korasi's sword for metal and black dragons

chaotic rapier > abyssal whip + rune defender for all other tasks

for dagannoths and aberrant spectres you may opt to use whip over rapier due to the high degrade cost of chaotic during these tasks


for ice strykewyrms:

full slayer helm

fire cape

arcane stream necklace

staff of light

arcane spirit shield > unholy book

ahrim's robetop and skirt

barrows gloves

infinity boots

seers (i) ring

After Bladewing's post this may be slight overkill, but anyway:


The base slayer gear is as follows (alternatives in brackets):

  • [For all slayer monsters except those mentioned under other weapons] Chaotic rapier (whip)
  • Bandos body + legs (Verac's skirt with either fighter torso or proselyte top)
  • [Depending on prayer/accuracy needs] Fire cape/Soul Wars cape/Ardougne cloak 3
  • Barrows gloves (your best rfd gloves, at least rune)
  • Dragon boots (rune boots)
  • Amulet of fury (glory)
  • Rune defender
  • Berserker ring (i)/ferocious ring if slaying in Kuradal's Dungeon (berserker ring, warrior ring)
  • [Most important] Full slayer helmet.
  • [For magic defence on waterfiends/aquanites] Karil's top and bottom (black dragonhide body and chaps)
  • [Crush attacks to use on waterfiends] Chaotic maul (saradomin sword, zamorakian spear)
  • [stab attacks for higher-levelled dragons, when not using rapier] Zamorakian spear (leaf-bladed sword)
  • Task-specific items such as mirror shields, antifire shields/potions, elemental shields, rock hammers, crystal chimes
  • Cannon (optional, up to personal preference)

Slayer setups generally emphasise strength bonus, which increases the average damage of each succesful hit (slayer monsters usually having rather low defence, hitting is not a problem). Secondly, prayer bonus is important to keep the cost of prayer potions down (as you slay with piety on, to increase the speed of your kills. This is cost-effective and highly recommended). As a rule of thumb, +15 prayer bonus or above is good, but don't overdo it (anything above +25 is a waste). Defence and accuracy bonus are usually not fretted over (any defence bonus over 200 will do; if you get hit too often you should be using a protection prayer). Dagganoth, black demon, lesser demon, hellhound, bloodveld and spectre tasks should be cannoned, as it dramatically increases xp rates (although it costs a bit).


Some notes on gear: You'll want a fury and a berserker ring before you get bandos plate, and get that before tassets. You'll want accuracy bonus on higher-levelled dragons; if using stab attacks (which you should) you can use the Ardougne cloak 3 which provides you with +6 stab and +6 prayer bonus. Torso + sw cape and fire cape + proselyte are common cheap top/cape combinations; the former is better.


Some levels to get for slayer (in approximate order but I'm not sure on the summoning):

  • 68 summoning - bunyip
  • 81 dungeoneering (you need 2 million xp, which takes you to level 80, but allowing some tokens for the scroll of life) - rapier
  • 89 herblore (85 with a +4 stew boost) - extreme potions, superantifires
  • 95 prayer - turmoil and soul split
  • 88 summoning - unicorn
  • 96 herblore (91 with a +5 stew boost) - overload
  • 99 summoning - steel titan

I'm sure I missed something but this is most of it.
