Aberrant spectres are Slayer monsters that require level 60 Slayer to kill. They frequently drop large numbers 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.

Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]

Equipping 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 Protection Prayers, 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 magic resistant armour such as dragonhide. As an undead monster the Salve amulet or Salve amulet (e) can be worn for a damage and accuracy bonus when fighting them. The bonus from the salve amulet does not stack with a slayer helmet/black mask and when both are worn, in which case only the salve amulet effect will apply.[1] Regardless, players should still wear their slayer helmet or a nose peg to protect from the Aberrant Spectre's unforgiving damage and debuffs.

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

It is 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 north-west 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.

In the Stronghold Slayer Cave, they can be safespotted around a section of the cave wall in the middle of the eastern part of the dungeon.

All safespots only work with Ranged or Magic, since there must be at least six spaces between the player and the aberrant spectre to avoid their attack range. Halberds or thrown weapons such as throwing knives and throwing axes do not have a long enough attack range to safespot. In addition, these safespots are only usable when the spectres are non-aggressive, since nearby spectres will attack the player and prevent them from killing the trapped spectre.
