The Slayer Tower
- The Slayer Tower
Built during the last centuries of the Second Age, the Slayer Tower is a massive edifice that serves as a warning to all who would enter the dark lands of Morytania. Within, a host of vile creatures work to prevent adventurers from ever leaving again...
The Slayer Tower is filled with monsters originating from the Slayer skill, and is unique in the sense of being one of the few locations with such a variety of slayer monsters.
The Slayer Tower is used in the special challenge given by the slayer master Duradel - or Lapalok - which will summon you to defeat a number of every monster in the tower. This challenge has a level requirement of 85 Slayer.
Dark forces prevent the use of dwarf multicannons in the Slayer Tower.
The Slayer Tower is located to the north of Mort Myre Swamp, north-west of the town of Canifis.
Other access routes are:
- Rubbing a Ring of slaying
- Using the Canifis Mushroom patch fairy ring (code CKS)
- Teleporting to Canifis and walking north-west along the path
There are no quest start points in the Slayer Tower.

Within the Tower are various creatures that can be assigned as your Slayer assignment. In particular:
- Ground floor
- First floor
- Second and third floors
Just outside of the Slayer Tower you will find Markus. He will offer you Slayer contracts that work alongside your Slayer assignments. He offers two types of contract:
- Normal - a contract for players who just feel like defeating the evil of the Tower
- Special - a contract that works alongside a slayer assignment in the Tower
Completing a Slayer assignment whilst carrying a Slayer contract or a Special slayer contract scroll in your inventory will grant you additional Slayer XP and, if you speak to Markus, an extra reward.
Note that normal contracts and assignments are separate in that a kill will not count towards both activities. If you prefer to complete the assignment before beginning your contract, place the Slayer contract in your bank. Special contracts are not separate, however.
You can start a special contract if you already have a normal contract, but not the other way around.
Points of Interest
Any player considering combating monsters on this floor are advised to bring magic-resistant armour such as dragonhide. The usage of a prayer such as Protect from Magic will also reduce the magical damage you take by 50%.
The second floor of the Slayer Tower is melee-oriented so come equipped accordingly.
The third floor of the Slayer Tower, as with the second floor, is melee-oriented.

In addition to the Slayer XP and Slayer points received from completing a Slayer assignment, players who complete their special slayer contract will be able to choose from a cash reward or an XP reward.
The cash reward is given to you either via your inventory or your money pouch.
XP is rewarded in the form of a Combat training book where you can choose any combat skill in which to apply the XP reward. You will be prevented from adding XP to Attack, Defence, Strength, Magic or Ranged if the reward is more than 10% of your current XP in that skill. The exception to this is Constitution.
