Echoing some of the previous sentiments, I would agree that slayer has transitioned from a luck based income method, to a more steady stream of income. Because Jagex has, for some reason, put almost all the focus of large scale money making on bossing, the gear released through bosses has devalued slayer drops past the point of return. However, normal drops from many of the higher levelled slayer monsters can add up very quickly. This, in conjunction with the incredibly low amount of resources required for players to use combat, makes slaying at a medium to high level quite profitable. Sure you might not be looking for that 3m whip drop that was once coveted, but if you keep tabs on what you bring in via Slayer you will realise you can gain more than you first believed.

Slayer is more profitable these days than it ever was because tasks are so much faster.......  Though its about picking up alot more drops as opposed to one drop worth 10mil you need to pick up 10 drops worth a mil.... etc etc

Slayer has always been worth it and never has been worth it.

Its a good skill to train to 99 to get your combat skills trained up and off all the 1000's of herb, seed and other goodies that drop you will profit pretty decently. But boss killing is how you've always made money since, well probably 2005 with the release of barrows.
