Abyssal demons are one of the strongest types of demons, requiring level 85 Slayer to be damaged. Along with dark beasts, they are some of the highest levelled Slayer monsters that can be killed off task for a reasonable amount of profit, due to their rare drops and a reasonable drop rate on ensouled abyssal heads. Alongside their boss variant, they are the only creatures in the game to drop the much coveted abyssal whip and abyssal dagger, the latter being very rare.
In combat, abyssal demons are capable of teleporting either themselves or the player around, meaning that safespotting is not possible. When you are teleported, you will stop attacking the demon, so make sure Auto Retaliate is active so when the demon attacks you, you will continue to fight back. They have relatively high accuracy but their max hit of 8 is low for their combat level.
Being a demon, this creature is affected by demonbane weapons.
