Deviant spectres are stronger variants of aberrant spectres that require level 60 Slayer to kill. They are found exclusively within the Catacombs of Kourend. Directly south-east of the djr fairy ring there is a mysterious hole for quick access to this creature, which must be accessed from below before being able to be used. The closest bank to this location is the Shayzien bank, which is south-east of the mysterious hole.
Like aberrant spectres, a nose peg or slayer helmet is required when fighting them; without either, their attacks will always hit and drain your combat stats extremely quickly. They are also aggressive to players in their vicinity, meaning one is highly recommended even if only passing by. They will heal one hitpoint each time they attack the player, so it is more efficient to kill a single deviant spectre at a time than to alternate between multiple targets.
Although they have a slightly better drop table than aberrant spectres and the ability to drop ancient shards and dark totem pieces, their Defence bonuses are notably higher, making them overall lower profit and Slayer experience per hour. The player would also almost certainly have to use Protect from Magic as they are aggressive and found in a multi-combat zone, as opposed to using armour with high Magic defence. However, some players who can afford a twisted bow may choose to kill deviant spectres when assigned for a task, as they drop dark totem pieces and require little effort with Protect from Magic on due to their high Magic level and hence weakness to the twisted bow. They are susceptible to the effects of the salve amulet and its variants (although it is only recommended to wear one in conjunction with a nose peg, as the Slayer helmet's effects do not stack with the salve amulet). Due to their frequent drops of seeds and grimy herbs, a herb sack and seed box are recommended for extended trips.
