Slayer reward point

Slayer reward points is a reward system that awards points after every completed Slayer task, from every Slayer master except Turael and Spria. The higher level the Slayer Master, the more points are received. Additionally, bonus points are awarded after every 10th, 50th, 100th, 250th, and 1000th completed task. Slayer reward points can be traded in to any Slayer master for various rewards.

Players can cancel or block tasks at the cost of slayer reward points.

A total of 9580 points are required in order to obtain all the rewards and blocks at least once. Using a base of 15 points, approximately 461 sequential tasks are required; not including the slayer helmet recolours reduces it to 3580 points or around 250 tasks.

The extremely long-term average of points that players get from completing tasks is 1.775x the normal number of base points. This is because the bonus points earned at certain intervals (every 10th, 50th, 100th, 250th or 1000th task) will add up to a much higher average number of points in the long run.

So for example, Krystilia gives 25 points per task as base points. But taken into account the bonus points players get at every 10th interval, the total number of points earned every 1000 tasks is 44,375 points, or an average of 44.375 points per task. This is a factor of 1.775x the base number of points of 25. The fact that the first 5 tasks assigned by her will not grant any slayer points is not taken into account here.

Obtaining points[edit | edit source]

With an exception of one quest reward, the only way to obtain Slayer points is through completing Slayer assignments. Slayer points are not awarded for the first four tasks a player completes but are rewarded for their fifth and further tasks.

Assignments[edit | edit source]

If attempting to gain points quickly, players are advised to use Turael or Spria for the first nine Slayer tasks and then any Slayer Master that gives decent tasks for the player's combat level.

If a player is unsure of their current streak progress, they may ask Turael in Burthorpe or Spria in Draynor Village for a new assignment. They will tell the player how far into their streak they are, but only if the current assignment is not one that they would ordinarily give. Do not confirm the dialogue, as this will give players a new task from them and reset your task streak.

Bonus points are gained at regular intervals, giving a certain number more than the Slayer Master's regular points. Players are recommended to use the Slayer Master having the highest requirements they meet once they approach the final task, due to the large increase in Slayer points given:

  • 5x points every 10th task
  • 15x points every 50th task
  • 25x points every 100th task
  • 35x points every 250th task
  • 50x points every 1,000th task
Slayer Master Points per task Points per 10th Points per 50th Points per 100th Points per 250th Points per 1,000th Notes
Turael / Spria 0 0 0 0 0 0 Changing a task with Turael resets the task count to zero, and therefore makes the player need to do another four tasks to start receiving points again. Completing tasks set by him contributes to the four needed to start gaining points. Players should not use this Slayer Master, especially if nearing the 10th or 50th task.
Mazchna 2 5 15 50 70 100 Mazchna's tasks are easy and fast, therefore he should be used to complete the first four tasks and quickly begin earning points.
Warning: Even though the first 4 tasks do not give Slayer points, they count as 4 of the first 10 for a higher number of reward points.
Vannaka 4 20 60 100 140 200 An advantage of using Vannaka over Mazchna is that Vannaka gives more experience per task. However, Vannaka's tasks will take longer.
Chaeldar 10 50 150 250 350 500 Players who find that they can complete Vannaka's tasks quickly and proficiently may decide to switch to Chaeldar, for better experience and more Slayer points, despite taking longer to complete, as it can accumulate to more experience and points over a period of time.

Nieve's tasks are very similar to Duradel's - the main difference is that fewer monsters are set by Nieve. Nieve is not recommended for the first four tasks, as her tasks can be time-consuming. Nieve is best used by players who lack the combat and/or Slayer level to use Duradel.
Duradel 15 75 225 375 525 750 Duradel is not recommended for the first four tasks, as his tasks are long and relatively difficult. However, they are highly recommended for all tasks after, due to the comparatively high number of points received upon completing his tasks.

Konar's tasks offer the most points outside of the Wilderness, but her tasks can only be completed by killing monsters in locations she tells players to kill them.
Krystilia 25 125 375 625 875 1,250 Krystilia's tasks offer the most points, but her tasks can only be completed by killing monsters found within the Wilderness. Assignments from her have a separate task completion counter from standard assignments.
