Skotos & Dark Claws

The fight against Skotizo just became a bit more lucrative!



Skotizo Pet

Skotizo now has a 1 in 65 chance of dropping Skotos - a bitesize Skotizo pet.


This little beast, spawned of darkness, is the perfect way to show off your domination of the Catacombs.



Dark Claws

In addition to Skotos, Skotizo now also has 1 in 25 chance of dropping Dark Claws.


Purchasing the Dark Mantle unlock from a Slayer Master for a cost of 1000 Slayer Points allows you to create a Purple Slayer Helmet by using the Dark Claws drop on a Slayer Helmet or Slayer Helmet (i).


This helmet provides the exact same stats and effects as the helmet used to create it, but with a Skotizo colour scheme.




Eternal Slayer Gem


Superior Slayer Encounters now have a chance of dropping an Eternal Slayer Gem. This gem can be used to create an Eternal Slayer Ring.


These items both provide the exact same functionality as the Slayer Gem and Slayer Ring, however the Eternal Slayer Ring provides unlimited charges.

In order to craft the Eternal Slayer Ring you must have unlocked the 'Ring bling' Slayer reward from a Slayer Master.

The Eternal Slayer Gem cannot be used in place of a standard Slayer Gem when creating a Slayer Helm.

The drop rate of the Eternal Slayer Gem is the same as that of the Imbued Heart. The drop rate of the Imbued Heart has not been affected by the release of the Eternal Slayer Gem.
