It does not take tens of hours for most people. From what a friend of mine told me, with a godsword, they got an abby whip in about two and a half hours. They got a few hundred thousand during then from stuff like dragon med helms, so don't rule it out for money making. I have no idea how long they took to get the 85 slayer though.

Abyssal demons aren't that great.

 

Sure, if you're lucky enough to get a whip, they're worth quite a bit. Though, they're so rare you'd make more money off of dragons.

 

Although, as a slayer assignment, they are very good because of that chance for a whip. :D

It's worth it. Keep in mind that not all tasks will make you a bunch of cash, but, once you hit 60+ and start unlocking some of the better slayer monsters (IE: Abby specs) you'll start making a nice profit from slayer.

 

Slayer is good for combining...

 

Charm gathering

Variety (minus bad tasks, slayer doesn't get boring)

Combat xp

Cash

 

Into one skill.

 

You should use Duradel in Shilo Village. Slayer isn't slow to level up, and at 55 you'll be getting probably 1 level per task completed.

D meds are extremely infrequent and only 60k ea. They're not how you make bank with slayer.

A whip is 3m for a reason, they are a rare drop. If you want to get 85 slayer to be able to hunt for a rare drop then you can, however you can kill monsters with rare drops without needing a slayer requirement.

You have the completely wrong idea about Slayer.

First of all, you're acting like you'll be making nothing all the way to 85. Wrong. You'll make loads of millions.

Second of all, you expect to reach 85 and suddenly start making bank with whip drops. Whips are expensive for a reason, due to their being rare.

Third of all, you expect it to be slow. Slayer is proven to be the fastest method of training melee. Although not quite at your level, it'll still be pretty fast/as fast as camping.

Pretty sure it's not

 

Most efficient but I'd like proof that it's always fastest, I know that some tasks are faster then camping but I don't know about an average being faster...

 

edit: idrc about proof, it is the best way to train melee so yeah, just slay using duradel and you'll get there eventually.

firsft of all i didn't say i won't make anythign i was saying that if i got to choose between not much money and good xp or much money or bad xp i would choose the good xp option

 

seconed of all ik they are rare wtf? i am asking if they worth it or not

 

third of allslayer isn't fastest method fo training melee ro anythind and u need to stop saying about everything (it's proven to be) fi u can get this good xp frmo slayer why not just kill things that gives good xp rather than getting ti in slayer task

Because the Black Mask/Slayer Helm gives a 15% bonus to Strength and Attack, which is just slightly less than a super set. So ofc Slayer would produce better experience.

 

And maybe I was wrong about the first two points, but your attitude about it seemed as if that's what it was.

You do know 10% of the time you spend slaying is getting a new task?

 

You'd be a lot better off somewhere you can train 100% of the time with no breaks.

 

Sure mutated velds are 80k slay xp/h. But at the xp the task will only go for about 30 minutes. Someone got 160k xp/h slaying? Was that turmloading with hati paws? No one can get 160k xp/h without hati paws/sc gear anywhere in the game.

Did you even read it? He averages 120k/h, that's 40k faster than the other methods.

 

Also, if you're anything efficient, you'd spent 1% of your time getting a new task.

It's 3m tbh because of the amount whips pkers use in pvp.. and since they mostly go out of the game... they rise.. when wildy comes back all the whips will stay in game, it'll drop.

Chances are you'll make more profit at Spiritual Mages.

Slayer itself is a good money maker. Drops can be fairly decent, and you can (slowly) make good cash. You can have 85 as a goal, but have fun doing slayer, as you can get clue scrolls, effigies, ect.
