This article is about the Slayer monster. For the superior variant, see Repugnant spectre.

Deviant spectres are stronger variants of aberrant spectres that require level 60 Slayer to kill. They are found exclusively within the Catacombs of Kourend.

Although they have a slightly better drop table than aberrant specters and the ability to drop ancient shards and dark totem pieces, their Defence levels are notably higher, making them overall slower to kill. The player would also almost certainly have to use Protect from Magic as they are aggressive and found in a multi-combat zone, as opposed to using armour with high Magic defence. However, some players who can afford a Twisted bow may choose to kill Deviant spectres when assigned for a task, as they drop dark totem pieces and require little effort with Protect from Magic on due to their high Magic level and hence weakness to the Twisted bow. They are susceptible to the effects of the Salve Amulet and its variants.

Like aberrant spectres, deviant spectres will heal 1 hp for every time they attack the player, so much so as being able to out heal poison, so it is more efficient to kill a single deviant spectre one at a time than to alternate between multiple targets.
