Bansh​ees are a slayer monster that require level 15 Slayer to kill. They can be found at the Slayer Tower in Morytania on the ground floor[U.K. floor], on the eastern side. Players must wear earmuffs while fighting them in order to avoid the effects of their screams, which causes the player to take 6 damage and have their stats greatly reduced in Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, Prayer and Agility with every attack received. As banshee's attacks are magic-based, it is advised to wear ranged armour in order to minimise damage taken while fighting them. As banshees count as undead, the effects of the salve amulets will work on them. It should also be noted that they will heal 1 hitpoint every time you hit.

Use a slayer helmet to eliminate the need to wear earmuffs, though its bonuses will not stack with the salve amulet.
