The path of a Slayer is difficult and dangerous, throwing its followers into battle with all manner of strange and unpleasant beasts. Those that survive will find the reward isn't just extra combat experience or valuable loot, but the ability to fight with unusual creatures that defy the efforts of most fighters to kill them. These "Slayer Creatures" often require some specialised tools to dispatch them, but the promise of rare and unique rewards is a tempting one, so it makes sense to gather these items on one page for your convenience.

  • The normal potion boosts your Slayer level by 4 + 4% of levels.
  • The strong potion boosts your Slayer level by 6 + 6% of levels.

Dragon Slayer Gloves

dragon slayer gloves.gif

There is a set of gloves available from the Fist of Guthix that anyone interested in Slayer should look to purchase. Dragon slayer gloves are an excellent tool for adventurers embarking on Slayer assignments to kill dragons. While wearing these gloves, you will receive 15% more Slayer experience for each dragon you kill and +10% to your Attack against dragons on a Slayer task. You need a Slayer level of 70 to wear dragon slayer gloves, and they will crumble to dust after killing 1,000 dragons on Slayer tasks.
