Lesser demon

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Lesser demons are the second weakest standard demon, above the imp. Free-to-play players often kill these not only because they are one of the strongest monsters on those servers, but also because they are one of two only sources of the rune med helm as the Ogress. Lesser demons have a somewhat low Defence, allowing players to hit them almost constantly for experience.

The lesser demon is the sixth strongest monster in free-to-play, only beaten by the ankous in the Stronghold of Security, the level 85 skeletons, greater demons in the Wilderness, and the bosses Obor and Bryophyta.

Like most demons they are susceptible to the effects of demonbane weapons.

Although combat experience per hour can be above average, lesser demons' sparse drops make them an average slayer assignment.

The Chasm of Fire is one of the best locations for slaying lesser demons. The fairy ring (DJR) is very close, and a Dwarf Multicannon can be used to speed up the task; players can also safespot in this location.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On 29 August 2006, lesser demons were graphically updated, giving them a more distinguished look. Several graphical variations of lesser demons were added with this update, including making the one in Melzar's Maze slightly taller than normal and giving him an extended green tongue.
