How come the custom-fit trimmed masterwork is still degrading on slayer task?

Elof at artisans clearly says "it will also never degrade on a slayer or reaper task" and one week into the M&S update this is still degrading the gear. Please fix this i'm now losing charges on stuff i spent hours upon hours of making just for this promise.

I don't need compensation or whatever, just the promise of you guys fixing the issue at hand would suffice. Better yet, make a public reaction as to why it is still degrading the gear is this a technical difficulty or just another one of many bugs ? own up to the fact that this is not working as intended.

I've been told it works as long as you're wearing the WHOLE set (partial sets, ie changing helm to slayer helm, removes the set effect and let it degrade again...) but hopefully they will fix that soon.

I haven't tested it myself as I haven't got around to making a set yet and am a slayer nub in my augmented bandos ;)

1. You need to wear the full custom fit set to apply the degredation negation.
2. The game takes a tick or two to recognize if a monster in combat with you is your slayer or reaper task target. Should a monster hit you prior to being registered as your slayer or reaper target, the armor will degrade. They are looking for a fix for this, but there's no estimate yet as to when to expect its implementation.
3. Minions (ex: GWD1 bodyguards or nechryael death spawns) are technically not your slayer target even if they are intrinsically linked to your target. As such, attacks by minions will still degrade your armor.

wait, so we either have to take degrading on expensive to repair armor, or we can't use our slayer helm on our tasks, which houses virtually every slayer-based perk

+%xp
Damage and Accuracy bonus
some slayer gear (especially with Corrupted Dust Devils)
Soul Capture bonus

unless i can fit it with a slayer fitting on the helm, i'm very unlikely to use this armor for slayer, which again was why made it, and broke down my slayer torva.

i'm not getting back my time i made into this armor. not getting back the armor i broke down into it. but not being able to use it effectively at all on slayer is just awful planning and they should have made this clear.

If that was the case it wouldn't see any use on Slayer tasks because you wouldn't be able to use the Slayer helmet

Oh I agree. Just stating that it appears that this is the case at the moment.

to clarify to the points:
1. I was wearing the full set helmet, gloves, boots and all.
2. i did this at Airuts which are not aggressive at the airut peninsula.
3. i did not yet do a reaper task thus hitting minions and not counting towards slayer is out of the question.

I however did a full ED2 with the gear and it seems there is no degredation in there.
so there is the possibility to do ED2 completely for free which is nice :D
