The Greater abyssal demon is a superior variant of the normal abyssal demon. It has a chance of spawning after purchasing the unlock Bigger and Badder for 150 Slayer reward points from any Slayer master.

The greater abyssal demon has a special attack, like other high levelled superior slayer monsters. The greater abyssal demon will teleport around the player, hitting them quickly at an attack speed of 8 or 9 for the next four hits (one hit per teleport). This special attack seems to have 100% accuracy, so Protect from Melee is advised for the whole fight as it occurs at random intervals and often hits very hard.

Like all demons, the greater abyssal demon is weak against the Silverlight, Darklight and Arclight.


Superior slayer monsters give 3 rolls on their regular counterpart's table.
