Slayer task/Ghosts

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Ghosts can be assigned as a Slayer task at level 13 combat by Turael, Spria, and Mazchna. Ghosts spawn in various locations throughout Gielinor.

Only regular ghosts, tortured souls, and death wings can be killed to satisfy the task. Spectres, ghasts, and shades will not count towards the task.

Most areas that contain ghosts contain those of combat levels 19, 24, and 29. Ghosts with a combat level of 76 and 77 can only be found in the Sepulchre of Death, the bottom floor of the Stronghold of Security.
