Greater demons are large demonic monsters. They are well known for their rune full helm and hard clue scroll drops.

K'ril Tsutsaroth, the Zamorakian general in the God Wars Dungeon, his bodyguard Tstanon Karlak, and Skotizo, the demi-boss in the Catacombs of Kourend, are considered greater demons for the purpose of a Slayer task.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Free-to-play[edit | edit source]

The only place free-to-play players can kill greater demons is in the Demonic Ruins. Since this is a multicombat area in high-level Wilderness, there is a high risk of getting killed by other players. Because of that, the best strategy to kill these is to bring as few items as possible.

To do that, first train your Prayer level to 43 to use Protect from Melee. Since the Ruins slowly restore your prayer, you can use this prayer permanently without draining your prayer points. Simply bring a weapon (for example Silverlight) and an amulet of strength or amulet of power, and bring nothing else to maximise your damage in combat while not having to risk losing items to a PKer.

Alternatively, bring a weapon and monk's robe top, monk's robe bottom and a holy symbol, which allows you to use either Superhuman Strength or Improved Reflexes in combination with Protect from Melee without draining many prayer points, for a 10% Strength or accuracy boost.

Additionally, there are multiple safespots at the Demonic Ruins from which a player can use ranged attacks to easily take down a Greater Demon within a few minutes of sustained ranged attacks.

Members[edit | edit source]

There are a number of safespots which players using Ranged or Magic may use:

  • Brimhaven Dungeon: standing at the easternmost piece of land in their spawn area or behind the fungus next to the stairs.
  • Catacombs of Kourend: under the arch which divides the Greater Demon area, and at the extreme north-east corner of the dungeon behind the rope exit.
  • Chasm of Fire: behind the many pillars and narrow pathways.
  • Entrana Dungeon: behind the burnt corpses (use the second square south of the stalagmite and two squares away from the sitting burnt corpse).
  • Karuulm Slayer Dungeon: at the entrance of the Greater Demon chamber.
  • Wilderness Slayer Cave: stalagmites at the entance of the Greater Demon chamber, halberds may also be used.
  • Isle of Souls Dungeon: behind the two rocks on the western side of the inner wall, south of the skeleton and demonic symbols.
