A slayer assignment is given by a Slayer master. When you kill the assigned monsters, you get slayer experience, which you wouldn't if it weren't your assignment. This is a list of possible assignments, with the alternative monsters.

Task weighingEdit

Task weighing is the system that slayer masters use to assign slayer assignments. The percentage chance of getting assigned a given slayer task can be calculated using the formula

\frac{w}{S} \times 100%

where w is the task's weight and S is the sum of all weights for the particular slayer master. Note that the weights of all blocked tasks, as well as tasks toggled off have to be subtracted from the sum S.

For example, below is a complete list of monsters that a slayer master can assign:

MonsterTask weight
Iron dragon7
Spiritual mage8
Dark beast10
TzHaar9
Cave kraken9
Abyssal demon10
Aviansie6
Steel dragon8

If a player has level 85 Slayer, and has not unlocked TzHaar and Aviansie tasks via Slayer reward points, then the list will be filtered so that the player can only be assigned abyssal demons, iron dragons, and steel dragons.

The task weight for these three are 10, 7, and 8 respectively. The pot therefore has a total weight of 25, giving the player a 10/25 chance of being assigned abyssal demons, 7/25 chance of being assigned iron dragons, and an 8/25 of being assigned steel dragons.

Assuming all tasks are available, the total sum of weights are:

Turael: 172

Mazchna: 208

Vannaka: 389

Chaeldar: 393

Nieve: 222

Duradel: 259
