The Old School RuneScape Wiki defaults to the British convention for floor numbering: Ground floor, first floor, etc. This may be changed by clicking the moon icon at the top right of the site.
Bloodvelds are a type of demon that use their long tongues to attack their victims. Being a slayer monster, bloodvelds require a Slayer level of 50 to be damaged by players. Despite being a demon, it is not affected by demonbane weapons.
Bloodvelds are one of few monsters that attack with magic-based melee, meaning that despite it using melee attacks against the player, it is the player's magic defence (rather than their melee defence) that is used to determine the accuracy of the bloodveld's attack. As such, it is recommended for players killing bloodvelds to equip armour with decent magic defence, such as dragonhide, as they are relatively accurate in combat. Players using prayer should still pray melee instead of magic to nullify damage.
They can be safespotted on the northeastern corner of the centre room of the Slayer Tower behind the chair, or they can also be safespotted next to the armour stands and wardrobes around the walls of the central room. In the task-only basement floor, they can be safespotted in the north-west corner of the area by standing in between the chest, chair, broken table and shelves. Bringing runes/staves for alchemy spells is a good idea due to their frequent decent drops.
They can also be safespotted in the Stronghold Slayer Cave while using a Dwarf multicannon in the north-east section of the bloodveld area, but this area is usually busy. Another safespot in the Stronghold Slayer Cave is in the east room, north of some rocks and east of a pillar.
In the God Wars Dungeon, they can be safespotted behind the piles of bricks directly north-east of the exit rope. Both a Saradomin item and Zamorak item are required to use this safespot. Another safespot will be even further north-east, behind the rock formations on the coast.
A player must kill a bloodveld for an elite cryptic clue, stating: "You'll get licked."
