Bloodvelds are a type of demon that use their long tongues to attack their victims. Being a slayer monster, bloodvelds require a Slayer level of 50 to be damaged by players. As a demon, it is affected by demonbane weapons. Bloodvelds are one of few monsters that attack with magic-based melee, meaning that despite it using melee attacks against the player, it is the player's magic defence (rather than their melee defence) that is used to determine the accuracy of the bloodveld's attack. As such, it is recommended for players killing bloodvelds to equip armour with decent magic defence, such as dragonhide, as they are relatively accurate in combat. Players using prayer should still pray melee instead of magic to nullify damage.
They can be safespotted on the northeastern corner of the centre room of the Slayer Tower behind the chair, or they can also be safespotted next to the armour stands and wardrobes around the walls of the central room. In the task-only basement floor, they can be safespotted in the north-west corner of the area by standing in between the chest, chair, broken table and shelves. Bringing nature runes for alchemy spells is a good idea, as they frequently drop fire runes and items with a decent high alchemy value.
They can also be safespotted in the Stronghold Slayer Cave while using a Dwarf multicannon in the north-east section of the bloodveld area, but this area is usually busy. Another safespot in the Stronghold Slayer Cave is in the east room, north of some rocks and east of a pillar.
In the God Wars Dungeon, they can be safespotted behind the piles of bricks directly north-east of the exit rope. Both a Saradomin item and Zamorak item are required to use this safespot. Another safespot will be even further north-east, behind the rock formations on the coast (only requires a Zamorak item once in the safespot).
As an alternative, players can also choose to slay Mutated Bloodvelds for their task. Mutated bloodvelds are the stronger variants of bloodvelds, and are a greater challenge but provide more valuable drops and more slayer experience. For players with more patience, mutated bloodvelds are a strong alternative to the normal variant. A really good spot for this is in Meiyerditch Laboratories using your attack style of choice and a Dwarf multicannon, due to the Laboratories being a Multicombat area. Bring lots of prayer or super restore potions, your best gear/combat bonuses etc, and use Protect from Melee ( which requires lvl 43 ) If you use the prayer, food is unnecessary as you will never take damage.
Players seeking an effective way to gain prayer experience can also choose to slay Reanimated Bloodvelds for their task. Access to the Arceuus spellbook and a supply of ensouled bloodveld heads is needed. This alternative method is more time-consuming and results in much less slayer experience for each monster killed.
