Slayer Gear?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to know what gear would be the best for me to do slayer.

 

First - I will be Dg'ing for a Chaotic rapier so that takes care of weapon.

I will also list my current gear.

 

Helm, Slayer Helm (Full).

Amulet, Glory (Loan fury sometimes).

Platebody, Fighters torso / Pros. when needed.

Platelegs, Veracs skirt / Pros. when needed.

Boots, Dragon

Cape, Soul Wars (Every task unless I range, which is rare).

Shield, Dragon defender / Anti D shield for dragon tasks.

 

I will evantually be saving for bandos, im pretty sure thats the best gear I can use.

But, im far off of that goal.. so..

What gear is best? Or am I good right now?

 

 

Thanks in advance :thumbup:

Get a zerker ring, then a fury as soon as possible. Both of those items are much more important than Bandos. If you have a fire cape, use that in place of the soul wars cape. This is assuming you're using piety/turmoil, right? If not, you should be - it's minimal cost for huge gain.

I second using turmoil or piety. I started a while ago and can't believe I didn't start sooner. Especially with prayer potions being so cheap it's way worth it.

I forgot to add that I usualy use warrior ring because I only have whip right now.

 

And yes, I do have piety

No firecape

Berserker ring is much better. It should be your next big purchase.

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)
  • Dragon defender (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 elite void skirt (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] Korasi's sword (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, +10 prayer bonus or above is good, but don't overdo it (anything above +20 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, black dragon, blue dragon, 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.

Someday I'm going open up a Word document, save that post, and actually have it at hand to post when I need it. But not today. Not today . . .

All I can say is WOW. Diddnt expect such an awsome post.

 

And I really cant have that fancy stuff.

I only have 5m total bank and most of it is in gear.

my plan is to save up for bandos then evantually sell that and get either turmoil or extremes/ovl

Also, this is in line with increasing your herblore - but getting super anti fires are especially helpful

 

I've been using them (and so I use a ddef instead of a antidragon fire shield) and I've definately seen a noticeable increase in kill speed at iron/steel dragons (with piety)

I'm not so sure about the difference in kill speed at colored dragons (blues are relatively fast regardless and the cannon does a huge portion of damage at black) but I would still recommend getting super anti fires.

 

I would also DG to past 81 (get some smaller rewards along the way - the scroll of cleansing/life/etc)

Bandos should be the very last thing you buy. A zerker ring provides the same strength bonus for 1/4 the price, and a fury is a bigger improvement over a glory than a BCP is over a torso (which it almost isn't).

^ I believe you should have said BCP over Melee Barrows Top. :P

But yeah, he is right. You'd be better off saving the $ until you get 85 Herblore.

Really? Cause as I recall it was you who was the one cussing me at base. Also, re-read what you just said: one 15 second delay (which is an exaggeration to begin with) ruins floor times? You are beyond ridiculous.

No, I said torso because OP has a torso.

Then I would compare it to a proselyte top, not a barrows top. In any case, OP has a torso, so that's what I compared it to.

I am not disagreeing with your point, just telling you a general comparison would work just as well.
