Slayer Tower

Lore

Viggora's Folly (Slayer Tower) was built in the Second Age by General Viggora. He claimed, in front of his fellow generals, that it was a testament to the abilities of mankind. Viggora continued to add to the fortress, adding more floors and other fortifications, to further prove mankind's abilities. Eventually, after adding so much and to Viggoras dismay, the tower eventually began to sink into the swamps of Morytania. Humiliated, Viggora abandoned the 'Slayer Tower.' During the Third Age, the tower was set up as a base for a small group of Zamorakian mages. Here they conjured monsters to use in the army of Zamorak. At some point a powerful mage joined their ranks, and attempted to summon a portal to another dimension. Succeeding, they froze the portal open. The group then disappeared. It is unknown what happened.

This portal has been open for centuries!

Slayer Contracts

A player may talk to Markus at the entrance to the Slayer Tower to receive a 'Slayer Contract.' There are two types of Slayer contracts that Markus will give you.

  • Normal - a contract for players who just feel like defeating the evil of the Tower
  • Special - a contract that works alongside a slayer assignment in the Tower

These are separate from a players Slayer Assignment. A player must have the contract in their inventory and kill the monsters in the Slayer Tower for it to count. Note that normal contracts and assignments are separate in that a kill will not count towards both activities. If you prefer to complete the assignment before beginning your contract, place the Slayer contract in your bank. Special contracts are not separate, however. If you decide to do Slayer Contracts, you will receive 20% the normal Slayer experience the monster is worth. Upon completion, a message will appear notifying the player and they must speak to Markus again to receive their choice of additional combat experience or cash.

The additional combat experience only applies to Attack, Strength, Defence, Range, Mage and Constitution
