Spiritual Mage Myths

Well, I've always wondered a few things about spiritual mages.

If I deal damage then leave alone, and another monster kills, I get 42.5 slayer xp.

- If I am only one attacking on death, regardless of it's health when I started, I get 85 slayer xp.
- If me and any number of other monsters are attacking, I will get 42.5 slayerxp.

It is impossible to get xp whilst offline by damaging an enemy, logging out, and letting it be killed. Nobody gets the xp.


I had an idea, that to reduce the amount of assistance I need for effigies, I should get 99 in one of each of the skills required.

These are the skill pairings:

Hunter and thieving are fast + cheap to get to 99, so those are a possibility.

Crafting also seems fairly fast, I heard 80kxp/hr, and at a cost of 4gp/xp. This would give me something to spend my money on.

At 94 slayer, I will choose one to get up to at least 95. Probably hunter due to implings.

Runecrafting / Summoning is a very hard pairing, so I don't think I will even attempt that. Mining / Smithing is also a plan for later on, not yet.

Staff of Light

Got a staff of light on my 100th or so kill. They're worth 5.5m or so, so quite happy.

Ice Strykewyrms

Just got my first task of these and.. wow. Because wearing a fire cape + fire spells deals double xp, I hit a 600 using monk's robes + a level 75 spell!

Also, maging them is fairly easy, nowhere near as hard as guides made it sound.


Wow, never got this from a steel dragon before. I think it's rarer than dragon legs or dragon skirt!

93 Slayer

93 Slayer, guess it's quests now. Ew.

75 prayer

Been training prayer solely through random xp, dragon bones from tasks, dragonkin lamps, and penguins. Got it up to 75 today.


Haven't posted much recently because nothing notable has happened. Just grinding my way through slayer. 900k from 99 strength, so will be ranging a lot soon.

Once I reach 93 slayer, I will do these quests:
Temple at Senntisten (Ancient curses).
Eadgar's Ruse (Trollheim teleport).
The Tale of the Muspah (Ice strykewyrms).

Primal Boots

Grr. Got primal boots as boss loot, but there's no point in them, as I can only bind 1 item, and a weapon is much more important.

Robin Hat

Got a Robin Hat in clue scroll, 4m. Also got 92 slayer.

132 Combat

I'm using all the lamps from effigies on prayer, as it is the most expensive skill that I might actually want to train, and I got up to 74 today.

This also got me to 132 cbt, yayay.
