This article is about the Slayer monster. For the boss, see Abyssal Sire. However, for the superior variant, see Greater abyssal demon.

Normal Catacombs of Kourend

Abyssal demon icon

Abyssal demons are one of the strongest types of demons, requiring level 85 Slayer to be damaged. Along with dark beasts, they are some of the highest levelled Slayer monsters that can be killed off task for a reasonable amount of profit, due to their rare drops and a reasonable drop rate on ensouled abyssal heads. They are the only creatures in the game to drop the much coveted abyssal whip. Like their boss variant, the demons can also drop the abyssal dagger, although very rarely.

In combat, abyssal demons are capable of teleporting either themselves or the player around, meaning that safespotting is not possible. When you are teleported, you will stop attacking the demon, so make sure Auto Retaliate is active so when the demon attacks you, you will continue to fight back. They also have relatively high accuracy, so bringing a full set of Guthan's is recommended to prolong trips.

Being a demon, this creature is affected by the powers of Silverlight, Darklight, and Arclight.
