Soul Reaper

 

Become a Soul Reaper in today's combat update from the RuneScape Ninja Team. Help Death restore balance to Gielinor by taking down some of its toughest bosses.

 

Earn reaper points for killing assigned boss targets and earn a range of rewards: powerful jewellery, a permanent reduction in instance-creation costs, aura refresh items, and more.

 

Read on for more information, or log in and head to Death's office now, via the portal just north of Draynor Village.

 

Live by the Sword

 

Once you reach Death's office - somewhat refurbished since the old death tutorial - he'll explain the situation in detail.

 

First, he'll hand you a grim gem - much like the enchanted gem you'd get from a slayer master.

 

Then, once per day, he'll offer you a boss-killing assignment that's achievable at your combat level. These range from the Giant Mole, Kalphite Queen and Barrows Brothers, all the way up to Rise of the Six, Araxxi and Vorago.

 

If you don't like the one he offers you, he'll give you an alternative, as long as you qualify for a different assignment.

 

Death will give you up to five alternatives per day, but each alternative offered after the first will reduce the reaper points you receive on completion by 25% - down to none on the fifth.

 

Cash In Your Chips

 

Completing assignments for Death earns you a modest amount of Slayer XP, and a sum of reaper points, which be used to purchase some smashing rewards:

  • Aura refresh items offer a one-time reset of a combat aura on cooldown. You can use one per day, and they come in a variety of tiers, relating to the tiers of the auras they affect.
  • Death's Deal is a consumable item that reduces the degradation of armour and weapons by 50% on your next death.
  • Permanently decrease instance costs by 25% with the 'instance cost' effect.
  • Permanently increase bonfire health boost durations by 25% with 'bonfire booster'.
  • Rainbow loot beams allow you to highlight your valuable drops with a cascade of colour.
  • Unlock the ability to buy extra Soul Reaper assignments, in exchange for your spare slayer points.
  • Incomplete hydrix is a new gem that can be combined with an onyx, then made into powerful equipment.

Level 79+ crafters among you can create jewellery from the completed hydrix gem. At level 87 Magic, you can use the Level-6 Enchant spell to create the following:

  • Ring of death - has a chance to heal you for 2.5% of a slain target's maximum life points.
  • Reaper necklace - grants a stackable 'reaper' buff when you score a critical hit, granting 1% increase to attack bonus in all styles for 10 seconds, up to a maximum of 3% for 3 stacks.
  • Deathtouch bracelet - has a chance to reflect 25-50% of damage you receive back to your opponent.
  • Amulet of souls - gives you a chance to heal 25-50% extra from Soul Split.

These pieces of jewellery are degradable and cannot be repaired. They last for around 10 hours of combat before degrading to dust.

 

Level 80 Fletchers can also make hydrix bolt tips, which can be added to ascension bolts and - at level 90 Magic - enchanted to create ascendri bolts. This potent ammunition can grant you a 'deathmark' buff when you hit a target, which gives you 1% more adrenaline per hit while active.

 

Finally, there are a bunch of cool cosmetic rewards, granted once you've put down a certain number of the bosses included in Soul Reaper. These include two titles: 'the Reaper' and 'Final Boss' - and a full set of cosmetic overrides: theVanquisher armour.

 

Note that you don’t need to be on a Soul Reaper assignment for kills to count. We've been tracking this since the update on 22nd July, so you may have unlocked some already.

 

Danse Macabre

 

It's a grim job, but someone's got to do it. Gear up and get reaping, then join the discussion over on the forums.

Patch Notes

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

A fix has been applied to correct the overly large vegetables that have been growing for some players.

Well that's the end of that fun.  :P

You can now benefit from the Varrock armour Smithing bonus when wearing the blacksmith’s top (assuming you've completed the respective achievement diary).

Yes. This is great!

I highly doubt TDs are worth unlocking, but if someone could tell me the slay xp per glacor or per hour (multiply xp/glacor by 135) that would be highly appreciated.

Also task size.

So just so I'm clear on this, do you still get Reaper points for killing bosses even if they're not a task and Death's assignments are just a bonus, or am I wrong?

...that's achievable at your combat level.


Oh great, let's base this update on the one thing that least of all impacts your ability to actually kill these bosses.

Never mind that being able to defeat these bosses depends vastly on the equipment you have/can afford and whether or not you have a stable connection/computer...

Tasks should be longer for most bosses it seems. 6 kbd and 11 gwd bosses is too short. 3 Araxxi is decent I suppose.

I am not a skiller, but i do some skills.

Base points, xp, and number assigned are all listed here http://services.rune.../en/Soul_Reaper

Points are from tasks only

Considering you only need an xp drop (excluding Barrows), all you have to do is smack it and not die. Join a mass or make your own, hire a friend and say you'll split loot 60:40 or something. They kinda make it easy for you...

What I love about the comp cape req and difficulty:

 

Most people only didn't want it due to Nex, KK, Rago and Rots because they really *need* a team to be done, especially if your just not good a pvm and thought they were too hard for a plain comp req.

But no they stick to their guns and ignore everyone.

 

Then they put a toggle in that recognises that EXACT 4 as 'group' bosses that you can opt out of if your more of a soloer

 

It's like hi wound I'm salt, let me roll on top of you and laugh.

I'm just glad the rewards don't really interest me, since I've always been terrible at bosses.

Definitely this. 10-15 GWD and Dks is a joke. It should be level dependent somehow. And should be at least 50+ GWD and 100+ DKs (at higher combat levels). You don't even need that good gear to kill that many.

4 moles (hardmode). Kind of interesting because the tasks use bxp. I have a lot of slayer bxp to use...
