Slayer Guide
Introduction:
This slayer guide is meant as a help for those either looking for information about their slayer task(s), or those who want to know what tasks are the best to focus on for maximum efficiency*.
As I didn't start writing this guide until after I'd gotten 99 Slayer, some of the lower levelled monsters being assigned will be missing from this guide. Below I will list preferred equipment, inventory suggestions as well as the slayer tasks you'll be assigned at level 99 Slayer starting with the task giving the highest amount of Slayer exp compared to how long it'll take to finish the task.
I will not be including boss tasks in this guide as I have never used them actively for training Slayer, but if someone wants to provide me with information about Slayer exp and such, please feel free.
*= As long as we're not able to skip nor block tasks and therefore have to do an easier task before being able to be assigned a new one, it's faster to just do all the tasks you're assigned with a few exceptions.

Recommended equipment

It is recommended to melee all tasks as this is by far the fastest and most efficient way of getting Slayer exp. Naturally the equipment posted below can be altered as you desire, but this is a nice all-round set of equipment with a high strength bonus and will guarantee you fast kills as well as a good defence bonus.


Helmet: Slayer helmet.
Cape: Fire cape.
Amulet: Amulet of fury.
Torso: Fighter torso.
Legs: Vesta's plateskirt.
Weapon: Abyssal whip.
Shield: Dragonfire shield.
Gloves: Barrows gloves.
Boots: Dragon boots.
Ring: Berserker ring.

This can be substituted for a less expensive setup, however:

Helmet: Slayer helmet.
Cape: Skill cape(t).
Amulet: Amulet of strength.
Torso: Fighter torso.
Legs: Initiate cuisse.
Weapon: Abyssal whip.
Shield: Rune defender.
Gloves: Barrows gloves.
Boots: Dragon boots.
Ring: Berserker ring.


Recommended inventory

This is a standard setup for all tasks, which again can be altered if you feel the need for it.
To finish your task as fast as possible, take a sip from your super attack and strength(4) right at the beginning of the task and activate the piety prayer.



1x Super strength(4)
1x Super attack(4)
4x Super restore(4)
2x Shark (Manta rays and sea turtles work brilliantly as well)

NOTE: When assigned a dragon task, add an antifire potion if you're not using either an anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield.

What to do with your points


Every time you complete a hard task, you will be rewarded 6 slayer points. These points can be exchanged for items with Rat Burgiss east of home. For 50 points you can buy a lit bug lantern which you can sell to Thessalia for 50m. To acquire 50 Slayer points you have to do 8.3 tasks, which means every task is worth at least 6.02m. For 150 Slayer points you can buy a Slayer helmet which is the best defensive helmet in the game. Furthermore the Slayer helmet has a guide price of 150m*. You can also buy a Comp ogre bow for 1200 Slayer points. This is by far the best Ranged weapon available.

*= Refer to the price guide at: http://www.allstarlegends.eu/forum/index.php/topic,4746.0.html for the most up-to-date price(s).

Final notes

Like I said in the inventory section, always use both super attack and super strength as well as piety to finish your task as fast as possible.
The one task you should not do is Kurasks. They take 1 minute and 25 seconds to get to, have no extraordinary drops, are difficult to kill without Leaf-bladed spear/Leaf-bladed sword (Which both have weak stats) or a meat tenderiser.

If I left out any information, there's anything you feel should be in the guide or you have any feedback, please let me know.
