Examine A mask that displays your affinity with abyssal demons. Requires Defence (50).
Weight 0.5 kg

The Mask of the Abyss is a reward from the Treasure Hunter minigame. Previously it was available on the Squeal of Fortune minigame before its removal on 4th February 2014.

This mask provides several bonuses for players looking to train their Slayer skill. When the extra drops, damage and xp boosts have expired, the mask will become the helmed version (Helm of Warping) which has similar benefits, but does not provide extra drops or damage, or the XP boost.

A player wearing a Mask of the Abyss


Benefits while worn
Guaranteed task Once per day (midnight GMT reset), while wearing the relevant mask, the next assignment you receive will be for abyssal demons. You will still need to go to a slayer master that normally assigns these creatures (Sumona, Duradel/Lapalok, Kuradal) – if you do not, you will be told which slayer master does assign them. This does not work if you are in the process of setting up a co-op slayer assignment.
Slayer damage boost The mask confers the same damage boost against abyssal demons (but only while on assignment) as the slayer helmet.
Slayer xp Killing a abyssal demon while wearing the mask grants an additional 85 Slayer xp - a number equivalent to the Slayer level required to fight it. This is given regardless of current assignment, and in addition to assignment and/or contract xp. The xp awarded by the mask can be boosted by items.
Extra drops Killing abyssal demons while wearing the mask will grant additional drops for every 10th kill. This grants a second roll on the creature's drop table including: the 100% drop, the main drop, and the charm drop (and any other tertiary drops).
Kill count Every abyssal demon killed is tallied, while the mask is worn. The mask has 900 kills assigned to it that, once reached, ‘uses up’ the Slayer xp and double drops effects, and turns the mask into a helm. A Spirit of Battle can be used to reset the mask's kill count to 0, enabling these benefits once more. The kill count can be tracked up to 999,999.
Trophy drops The odds of receiving an abyssal head is doubled.
Slayer item The mask acts as face mask.
Right-click benefits
Daily teleports Each mask can, up to twice per day, teleport you directly to a choice of locations where the abyssal demons can be found. You'll need access to Morytania, an assignment from Kuradal, discovered the Fairy Ring to the Abyss, and have level 85 Slayer to use these teleports.
  • Morytania Slayer Tower (near Markus)
  • Morytania Slayer Tower (top floor)
  • Kuradal's Dungeon
  • Abyss
Check kills The mask can put a message into chat that shows your total kills of abyssal demons. If the helm has yet to be unlocked, there’s also a message to say how many more kills are needed to do so.
Change look After the helm version has been unlocked, you are free to switch between the helm and the mask version, as a cosmetic preference only – this does not restore the Slayer xp and double drop effects to the mask, you'll need a Spirit of Battle to do that.
