Aberrant spectres are Slayer monsters that require level 60 Slayer to kill. They frequently drop large amounts of grimy herbs and herb seeds. Because of this, bringing a herb sack and seed box when killing them is recommended.

Deviant spectres, found in the Catacombs of Kourend, can be killed in their place if you are assigned aberrant spectres.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]

A nose peg or slayer helmet is required when fighting aberrant spectres; if you do not, they will use a special attack which will always hit, even through Prayer, and drain your combat stats extremely quickly. Boosts cannot be used to equip a nose peg so level 60 Slayer or a slayer helmet is required.

They attack using Magic, so the Protect from Magic prayer can be helpful, or players can wear dragonhide armour. Using a Salve amulet or Salve amulet (e) will give you a large advantage, since they are an undead monster. However, bonuses do not stack with a slayer helmet/black mask. It should also be noted that using Protect from Magic does not counter their stat-reducing abilities. 

Note: It is possible to use a dwarf multicannon inside the Stronghold Slayer Cave. This is recommended for fastest Slayer experience.

It's possible to safespot in the Slayer Tower by standing on the brick pile just west of the Agility chain shortcut and pulling spectres just in front of the suit of armour from the room south of the shortcut. A crossbow's rapid attack style will be able to target aberrant spectres from this distance, making it a very useful spot. It is also possible to wait out the 10 minute hostility period with minimal risk by hiding beside the table in the northwest corner. You may be attacked occasionally, but it won't be often. This works well in connection with the safespotting /trapping process.

It is also possible to safespot one of the aberrant spectres by using the south-eastern corner of the wall of the staircase-room. This only works with Ranged or Magic, as there has to be at least six spaces between the player and the aberrant spectre before the player gets out of the spectre's attack range. It's not possible to use halberds or thrown weapons such as throwing knives and throwing axes without getting hit as their attack range is not long enough. In addition, the safespots are only usable when the spectres are non-aggressive due to nearby spectres attacking the player and preventing them from killing the trapped spectre.
