Ghosts Ahoy and Slayer Update

Ghosts Ahoy!

The Morytania swamp waters have further receeded, providing access to a town called Port Phasmatys. Head eastwards from Canifis, and provided you can survive the vampires and leeches in the swamps, you should have no trouble finding the place.

Port Phasmatys itself has many of the facilities you would expect in a thriving RuneScape town, including a bank, a furnace, an inn and a general store. However, unlike most RuneScape towns, Port Phasmatys is almost entirely populated by ghosts. The citizens of Port Phasmatys have unwittingly consigned themselves to an immortal existence, trapped forever in this world as unwilling ghosts.

Players can try and help resolve this tragic situation in the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Necrovarus, Lord of the Temple of Phasmatys, holds the key to the door into the next world. Can you convince him to open it and set the trapped souls free?

To the north of the town is the Ectofunctus. This provides a way to get more prayer experience from the various bones in the game. It is also a source of ectotokens, used as currency by many of the local ghosts. Speak to the ghost disciples and they will give you more details about how to use the Ectofunctus.

Slayer Reassignment

Thank you for all the constructive feedback we have received on the slayer skill.

Players can now get a replacement task for their slayer assignment if they really don't like the one they have been given.

We didn't want to make it so that people could just keep on rejecting their assignment until they got given the creature they wanted to train on anyway. Part of our aim for the slayer skill was to increase the variety in combat training and give players an incentive to explore new training areas. That is an element we are very keen to keep.

Therefore if you currently have a high level slayer assignment that you feel you can't do, you can now replace it with a low level assignment by talking to the slayer master in Burthorpe. However if you already have a low level assignment then he won't replace it for you again, so you can't keep cycling what you've got to achieve.

It is also worth noting that the Burthorpe slayer master will sometimes tell you to kill Kalphites. Do not worry, this does not mean you will have to kill the extremely strong Kalphite Queen. There are lots of lower level Kalphites in the game.
