Shades can be assigned as a slayer task, with no Slayer level requirement by Mazchna and Vannaka. Level 159 Shades may be found in Stronghold of Security and level 140 Shades may be found in Catacombs of Kourend. The Loar Shades in Mort'ton count for a slayer task as well, and are typically preferred as they are much faster to kill. They are susceptible to the Salve Amulet and Crumble Undead. It is worth noting that combat experience gained while fighting the shades in the Stronghold of Security is drastically reduced; the player will gain 1 experience for 10 damage dealt.

Location Comparison[edit | edit source]

Location Maplink Amount Multicombat Cannonable Safespottable Notes
Sepulchre of Death in Stronghold of Security 4 No Yes Yes Can be safespotted using a skeleton found on the eastern side in the middle northern part of the room
Catacombs of Kourend 6 Yes No Yes Can be safespotted by using a corner in the area just south of the Steel Dragons. But a steel dragon will be fighting you the whole time so its useless. Shades can also get caught on several corner tiles found within their area, allowing for an effective safespot while avoiding the Steel Dragons.
Mort'ton 6 Yes No Yes Easiest and fastest to kill. Priest in Peril required.
Shade Catacombs 12 Phrin, 16 Riyl, 29 Asyn, 8 Fiyr, 11 Urium No No Yes Keys required to access certain parts of dungeon (see Shade Catacombs)
