Slayer task/Bears

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bears can be assigned as a slayer task at level 13 combat by various slayer masters. Bears can be found in various locations throughout Gielnor.

Black bears, bear cubs, grizzly bears, grizzly bear cubs, reanimated bears, and Callisto can all be killed to satisfy the task. Angry bears (found in Tolna's rift), the Headless Beast (fought during the quest Getting Ahead), and the Crystalline and Corrupted Bear (fought in the Gauntlet and the Corrupted Gauntlet respectively) do not count towards the task.

Those with lower combat levels would find it in their best interest to kill bear cubs, found in the Fremennik Province and throughout Kourend. Black bears would also be a good option, with a combat level of 19. Grizzly bears in most cases are an option if they are close, as most are level 21 combat. The only level 42 combat grizzly bears are found in Tirannwn. Grizzly bear cubs, too, can only be found in Tirannnwn, with combat levels ranging from 33 to 36. Callisto is not a recommended alternative, due to its location being in deep Wilderness.

Players with 60% Arceuus favor, 21 Magic, ensouled bear heads, and are on the Arceuus spellbook may find reanimated bears easier to kill then regular bears, due to their lower hitpoints.
