Slayer Information

Key Points

‣ Weak to dragonbane weapons, stab and magic. If you have no dragonbane weapons, it is recommended to use magic against Iron Dragons. ‣ In order to be protected from dragonfire, players need a dragonfire shield paired with an antifire potion, or a super antifire potion on its own.

‣ Most commonly killed in The Catacombs of Kourend, and Brimhaven Dungeon. ‣ Slow slayer xp compared to other monsters so it is recommended to skip these if you have the slayer points to do so.
