Greater demon

Greater demons are commonly fought monsters that can be assigned by Slayer masters. They are well known for their rune full helm drop, as well as hard clue scrolls. They can be safe-spotted with Ranged or Magic in the Chasm of Fire as there are many pillars there, and narrow pathways. Another safe-spot is in Entrana Dungeon behind the burnt corpses (use second square south of the stalagmite and two squares away from the sitting burnt corpse). Finally, they can be safe-spotted by standing at the easternmost piece of land in their spawn area in the Brimhaven Dungeon or by using the mushrooms next to the stairs. The Catacombs of Kourend has an easy safespot; stand under an arch which divides the area where the Greater Demons can be found. Another easy safespot in the Catacombs can be found in the extreme northeast corner of the dungeon, behind the rope to the surface. They can also be safe-spotted in the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon, by standing at the entrance of their room.

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

Locations[edit | edit source]

Free-to-play strategy[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. That way, your damage per second is still maximised, but you don't risk losing your items.

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 any prayer points, for a 10% Strength or accuracy boost.
