|The vacuumed face of evil.|
A dust devil is a Slayer monster that requires level 65 Slayer to kill. They are located in the Smoke Dungeon. The use of a face mask is required to fight Dust Devils as they use clouds of dust, sand, ash, and whatever else they can inhale to blind and disorient their victims. Its vulnerability to ranged attacks and very good drops make it an excellent monster to train on. Its melee attacks are not magic-based, so it is not recommended to bring dragon hide or other magic defence armour. It is most commonly killed for Slayer assignments.
- Smoke Dungeon - Found in the western part of the dungeon. You will also need to have started the Desert Treasure Quest (and do it up to the point where you make and look into the mirrors) to gain access to the well. The entire time you are in the Smoke Dungeon, you will need the face mask (or a Slayer helm) on, or you will die very quickly.
If you don't wear a facemask, slayer helmet or slayer helmet (i), you will not be able to damage dust devils. Along with this effect, your prayer points will be rapidly drained to zero, whilst the dust devil hits constant 14's on you. Dust devils are vulnerable to Ranged and stab attacks. They attack with melee at close range. Their dusty, gritty attack, even if it causes no damage to hitpoints, has the special effect of greatly reducing an unprotected player's combat skill levels. A single attack can reduce Attack, Strength, Ranged, and Magic to 0 whilst halving a player's prayer points. However, a facemask, Slayer helmet or slayer helmet (i) can completely neutralize the dust devil's deadly special effect.
A good healing strategy is to use the spell Bones to Peaches to maximise one's stay. Players with 80+ defence and a Saradomin godsword shouldn't need much more than 5 sharks for a slayer task. However, those with high Defence and good defensive armour may not require any food, especially due to the occasional 1-2 Ugthanki kebab drop.
