Abyssal Demon: Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Abyssal demons are located at the top of the Morytania Slayer Tower, in Kuradal's Dungeon, and in the depths of the dark Abyssal Area (which is not the Abyss location used in Runecrafting) accessible through fairy rings with code A-L-R. Only players with level 85 Slayer can fight these demons and obtain their drops. Abyssal demons share similar drops with black demons.

Abyssal demons are the ultimate goal of many slayers, because of the rare and valuable Abyssal whips they drop. The whip is regarded by many as one of the best weapons in RuneScape, so it is always in demand and sells well on the Grand Exchange. Slaying abyssal demons can therefore be very profitable. They are often slayed rather than Dark Beasts because the dark bow is currently worth a lot less than the Abyssal Whip, and Dark Beasts have a higher Slayer level requirement, making it not worth the effort money-wise.

Higher levelled players may find it easy to stay for long periods of time, using a healing weapon such as a Saradomin Godsword (or Enhanced Excalibur), a healing familiar (e.g. bunyip), or a combination of the two, or Guthans. Prayers such as Soul Split can also be utilized to extend hitpoints. These methods, along with an occasional lobster drop, can sustain most players for hours.

If players bring an Abyssal demon head to the Taxidermist in Canifis, she will remark "It's still glowing" and the effect is preservable with magic, despite that neither the living nor stuffed versions of the Abyssal Demon glow.

Abyssal demons seem to fade and shrink slightly when they are hit.

The Abyssal demon and Cave horrors were the only Slayer monsters that did not receive a graphical update on or about the time the Smoking Kills quest was released in 2008.


Strengths and Weaknesses

As the Abyssal demon is indeed a demon, it is affected by the powers of Silverlight and Darklight. Abyssal demons' max hit is very low considering their level, which is only 8 damage. This makes them very good targets when using Guthan's or Dharok's sets, because of the low risk of dying. Although if you use Dharok's, be sure to safespot or use prayers (prayers are recommended).

Abyssal demons have the unusual ability of teleporting around the room while also teleporting the player at the same time. While the player always ends up in one of the eight spaces next to the abyssal demon, it is possible that the ending position will prevent ordinary melee combat. For example, if the demon teleports east of a terrain feature and the player south of it, melee combat is not possible (except if the player has a long weapon like a Halberd). If auto-retaliate is turned off, the player will have to click or right click to resume attacking. (Shifters , the Chaos Elemental and Imps are the only other monsters that teleport during battle, but only the Chaos Elemental teleports the player. Nomad, the boss from Nomad's Requiem also teleports himself and the player.)
