Hey guys!

So yesterday I received a slayer task to slay "creatures of deamonhiem" so i of course used it to slay seekers and soul gazers in Zamorak's lair.

My next task was rune dragons, Awesome! Then I Iron dragons.... Lame!

I thought why don't they make all tasks more like that deamonhiem task?

Instead of straight up telling me what metal dragon to kill why not let me choose?

So my suggestion would be to turn iron/steel/mith/addy/rune dragon tasks into just straight up metal dragon tasks.

This idea could be expanded to demons, chromatic dragons, slayer tower creatures and more!

this would take a bit of the dread of rolling tasks away.


EDIT BELOW:

So it's been brought to my attention that these types of tasks do exist with laniakea!!! Awesome! then the only thing that might be better is eliminating more of the specific demon/dragon/metal dragon tasks so that the frequency of the less generic tasks fully replace those.

It's exclusive to Laniakea though.


Would greatly prefer a higher chance of getting cluster tasks instead of a specific monster with lack luster drops.

It's a perk to having a higher slayer level.

It's not like Laniakea would just offer cluster tasks - she also has highly inadequate ones like iron dragons still - which honestly already were inadequate for Movran since he was supposed to be like Kuradal with poorer tasks removed, just like Laniakea is supposed to offer comparable tasks to Movran.

And well - considering that every single recent slayer release in the last few years already came in a cluster (gemstone dragons, corruped creatures, soul devourers, lost grove creature, stalkers, revenants, dinosaurs, vile blooms) it might be feasible to cluster older tasks as well - they do not be as vague as a dragon or demon - but chromatic and metallic dragon could easily go hand in hand with the existing gemstone one. A metal dragon task could never be wrong (at least not in the current scope of the game), an iron one just is past kuradal.

The upcoming abyssal savages/hounds/lords also were supposed to be clustered with the existing demon variant - well whenever they are supposed to be released, they haven't been scrapped at least. I just don't get it why only old content has to remain awful and/or broken.

To be honest I think it's actually fine that she sometimes offers something like a demon - granting you total freedom of what you want to kill, but if she doesn't it should either be a cluster or an unique creature (there aren't multiple kinds of mammoths or ripper demons after all currently...).

Ideas for cluster tasks I guess...

Kuradel's Dungeon Creatures. Can attack any monster in the dungeon. Killing monsters that appear in the dungeon but outside like Hellhounds in Traverly dungeon count.

Replaces Iron/Steel Dragon tasks for high level slayers.


Aminishi Dwellers. Sotapanna, Sakadagami, Anagami, Arhat, anything in ED1.

nice i guess i've not had the fortune of getting any of those with her yet. It's just too bad her tasks still include things like iron dragons instead of generic metal dragon tasks.

It'd be nice if she was all generic when it came to tasks like that just to get rid of the tasks that are boring
