Hi, I recently saw the video announcement about Land Out of Time... It's cool... but again... Another new Slayer master... and goes down 99... Why you have a 120 skill and keep adding masters below 99?
Thanks!
Since I remember.

Two reasons: Having a bit more of potential for expansion in the future and actually making use of those 120 levels. Slayer certainly isn't as bad as the other two level 120 skills, but it certainly has enough levels without purpose. If they were to release a level 115 slayer master now they would've given up almost any potential for future expansion.

Besides - considering the tasks she gives are fairly comparable to movran (generally the same + a few low levelled tasks being removed, just like movran did the very same thing with kuradal), so why would a player be interested in rising 20 levels or more to basically get the very same tasks over and over again?

One may ask why Ling and Mandrith don't require higher slayer level too.

I think the answer is still the same: they are just supplement slayer masters to the existing ones, but not a higher tier slayer masters.

Another reason could be that the majority of players don't even have 99 Slayer yet, let alone 120.



Not true. According to the hiscores 23k+ players have 120 slayer and almost 160k players have 99 slayer. More then some other skills.

New Slayer Master? Again? More Slayer? At insanely high levels? Why...

Where is this announcement? I haven't seen anything.


From the latest Jagex live stream. Not at insanely high levels. Slayer mobs require only level 90-114 to kill. She is more like a supplement to Morvan or Ling or Mandrith.

Why? Because there are new slayer mobs on Anachronia, and the new slayer master can hand out "clustered" assignments like Dragon Task and let the players dictate what dragons to kill instead of a specific kind.

Which actually even is a feature that should be part of the older slayer masters as well, since basically every single task released in the last few years allows you to kill related creatures in lieu. Well - I guess Movran will be dead meat anyway.

The difference is:

Movran: go kill red dragons - players have the choice to kill baby, young and grown RED dragon only.

Anachronia slayer master: go kill DRAGONS - players have the choice to kill not just baby, yound and grown RED dragons but any dragons (red, blue, black, green, metallic, etc).
