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?

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.

Yeah - just like you can kill any corrupted creature, soul devourer, stalker, gemstone dragon, grove creature, ascension creature... with any master already. But yet Movran for instance still has the clutter in the form of three individual strykewyrm tasks.

Tasks slightly grouped by (I guess something like dragon would be a tad bit too common - wouldn't have hurt if it still was grouped by chromatic (including frost/celestial), metallic and gem for instance) would've be able to fix the issue that slayer master naturally become more and more cluttered over time.

My problem currently is that movran sounds so inferior in every single aspect now: He has more poor tasks, that are removed with the new master (okay just like he did with kuradal), he has more clutter with his non-grouped tasks and naturally gives fewer points. Thanks to so widely grouped tasks you're even able to choose if profit, xp or quick tasks matter most for you. Welp - if you have unlocked him he's at least relevant for 5 levels right?

This new slayer master is great and all, but I'm not using her since she assigns monsters that "hit like a truck". Vinecrawlers are a pain in the ass, I'm not doing the new version of them.


That's what block slots are for. I am fairly sure due to her assigning behaviour you can free up quite a few used for movran.
