Greater demons are commonly fought monsters that can be assigned by Slayer masters. They are well known for their rune full helm drop, as well as hard clue scrolls. They can be safe-spotted with range or magic in the Stronghold Slayer Cave at their northernmost location just behind the pillar that leads to the branch or just before the stairs leading up to them on the Nechryael side. Another safe-spot is in Entrana Dungeon behind the burnt corpses (use 2nd square south of the stalagmite and two squares away from the sitting burnt corpse). Finally, they can be safespotted by standing at the easternmost piece of land in their spawn area in the Brimhaven Dungeon. Also, the Catacombs of Kourend has an easy safespot, stand under an arch which divides the area where the Greater Demons can be found.
Greater demons can be found at these locations:
- Wilderness (Demonic Ruins and underground Lava Maze)
- Brimhaven Dungeon
- Entrana Dungeon
- Ogre Enclave
- Stronghold Slayer Cave
- Catacombs of Kourend (Levels 100, 101, and 113)
The only place free-to-play players can kill greater demons is in the Demonic Ruins. Since this is a multicombat area in high-level wilderness, there is a high risk of getting killed by other players. Because of that, the best strategy to kill these is to bring as few items as possible.
To do that, first train your prayer level to 43 to use Protect from melee. Since the Ruins slowly restore your prayer, you can use this prayer permanently without draining your prayer points. Simply bring a weapon (for example Silverlight) and an Amulet of strength or Amulet of power, and bring nothing else. That way, your damage per second is still maximized, but you don't risk losing your items.
Alternatively, bring a weapon and Monk's robe top, monks robe bottom and holy symbol, which allows you to use either Superhuman Strength or Improved Reflexes in combination with Protect from Melee without draining any prayer points, for a 10% strength or accuracy boost.
