Dust devil icon A Dust Devil is a very popular training monster for slayers of level 65 and up. 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 disorientate 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 the fact it can drop the much sought after Dragon chainbody, however the chances of this are only 1/32,768.

LocationEdit

  • 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.

StrategyEdit

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.

Players need at least level 65 Slayer to fight these creatures. The protective headgear is also required just to survive in the Smoke Dungeon, which is the only dust devil's habitats.

A good healing strategy is to use the spell Bones to Peaches to maximise one's stay. It is possible to use Guthan's armour to heal, although players must be careful switching the helm with the face mask or the dungeon will hit them for 20 hitpoints every 12 seconds or so, only allowing 3-4 hits in before having to switch back to the face mask. Use Guthan's armour to heal only on nearby fire elementals, pyrefiends, or fire giants.

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.
