Bansh​ees are a Slayer monster that require level 15 Slayer to kill. They can be found at the Slayer Tower in Morytania on the ground floor[?], on the eastern side. Players must wear earmuffs while fighting them in order to avoid the effects of their screams, which causes the player to take 6 damage and have their stats greatly reduced in Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, Prayer and Agility with every attack received. There is a safespot to the north of the staircase leading to the 1st floor[?], behind the standing torch, between the staircase and wall. As banshee's attacks are magic-based, it is advised to wear ranged armour in order to minimise damage taken while fighting them. As banshees qualify as undead, the effects of the salve amulets and the Crumble Undead spell will work on them.

Using a slayer helmet will eliminate the need to wear earmuffs, though its bonuses will not stack with the salve amulet.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Banshees become translucent when moving or turning but become solid when standing still.
  • Every time you land a hit on a banshee, no matter the number, it will regenerate 1 hitpoint.
