Lesser demon

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Lesser demons are the second weakest standard demon, above the imp. They are sometimes killed by Free-to-play players, as they are one of the strongest monsters on those servers and can drop the desireable rune med helm. Lesser demons have a somewhat low Defence, allowing players to hit them almost constantly for experience. Like most demons they are susceptible to the effects of demonbane weapons.

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.

Safespot location for lesser demons in Chasm of Fire

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

A unique Lesser demon can be found in the basement of Melzar's Maze, and is fought during the Dragon Slayer I quest.

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.
