Slayer's respite(m) detail.png

Slayer's respite(m) is a stat-enhancing ale that temporarily raises a player's Slayer level by 4. It is the stronger or 'mature' version of the regular slayer's respite, which adds only 2 levels to Slayer. Its effects are not very useful due to the short period of time that the Slayer boost is actually active and that it decreases Attack and Strength levels. Slayer's respite can be made using the brewing vats in eastern Keldagrim or Port Phasmatys. Wild pie is commonly used instead of the respite as it boosts Slayer by 5 levels and is cheaper.


  • Increases Slayer by 4 levels
  • Heals 1 hitpoint
  • Lowers Attack and Strength by 2 levels


The full recipe for standard Slayer's respite is as follows (in the order given):

  1. 2 buckets of water
  2. 2 barley malt
  3. (optional) 1 "the stuff," to increase chance of maturity
  4. 4 wildblood hops
  5. 1 ale yeast
  6. Wait 1-2 days
  7. Collect the completed ale using 8 beer glasses or 2 calquat kegs

During the brewing process, there is a small chance that any ale will turn out mature; leaving a normal ale in the vat after it has finished brewing will not make it turn mature. The chance of brewing a mature ale can be increased by adding the stuff to the brewing vat, just prior to adding the hops.
