Today, the most sinister of November’s four slayer monsters are unleashed upon the world: ripper demons.
These lethal melee-using monstrosities lurk in an abandoned mine east of Al Kharid, and can buy Darkscape gold level-85 ripper claws.
They’re a hard target for high-level slayers, and can crop up in the ongoing Raptor’s Challenge. Remember to take your daily assignments from Raptor – who’s now outside Citharede Abbey – making the most of that double XP.
Until now, ripper demons have been the stuff of nightmarish legend – referenced in the One Piercing Note quest, in historical accounts, in tales from the Eastern Lands, and in the Song from Before the War short story. www.mobxe.com/Darkscape.html
Now they’re a terrifying reality. Jump down the steps alongside the path to Citharede Abbey and make your Darkscape gold down into the mine entrance. The rippers lurk deep beneath the abbey – be sure you’re prepared when you enter their lair.
We don’t want to give too much away, but watch your health – once a ripper demon has a taste of blood, it becomes all the deadlier. They’re tricky devils, too, and you’ll need to stay focused to avoid their attacks.
You’ll soon find that that they’re dangerous right up to the point of death. Positioning is key.
Survive, and you may pick up some ripper claws. These are level 85 weapons that – when wielded as a pair – deal more damage the further the target’s health is below 50%. Note that these are tradeable until they are first used.
Ripper demons can be assigned by Kuradal, Morvran and – during November – the Darkscape gold. Note that once the month is up, the rippers will remain – they’re a permanent addition to the game. www.mobxe.com/Darkscape.html
Finally, while you’re on a ripper demons assignment, watch out for the next part of the key to open Raptor’s chest. Hold onto it, and look out for the remaining parts in the coming weeks!
