If you look closely at abyssal demons, you will realize that they don't look like demons at all. Instead they look like void shifters which must have escaped from
Soul Society Pest Control. The truth is: abyssal demons are actually bottles of windex dyed black. Back in the early days of Prunescape, instead of QA mods, Jagex used bottles of windex to remove bugs from the game. After a while, the bottles started to sweat and pleaded for better working conditions but Jagex ignored their cries and instead had them whipped them into submission.
Then on January 26 2005, several brave windex bottles ganged up on their slavedrivers and overpowered them. They then freed their brethren and took Jagex's whips in case they would need to protect themselves. Riding their mighty desk chairs with whips in hand, the windex bottles escaped to the place where Jagex would never find them: inside their own game.
Dissatisfied with the slavedriver mods, our glorious leader locked them all in his bathroom and forced them to learn how to catch bugs using nothing but chopsticks (they eventually were able to develop a green lantern which made the task much easier.) Once this was accomplished, these mods were then rehired as Prunescape's new QA team.
The reason why nobody can tell that abyssal demons are actually spray bottles sitting in chairs is because of two words: Poor Graphics
Fighting Abyssal DemonsEdit
To fight abyssal demons, first you have to get them, they can be found
- At the top of the Slayer Tower (along with a lot of abysmal botters.)
- In Kuradal's Dungeon (They must be your slayer task.)
- Inside the abyss, also known as Andrew Gower's basement. The specific part of the abyss where they are located can only be accessed using the fairy ring code A-L-R. (Recommended if you want to kill them but they aren't your task.)
Since they are demons (lolwat?) abyssal demons are affected by the effects of silverlight and darklight, but those aren't really necessary. They are also weak to Magic which I guess would be an alright way of fighting them since their drops can cover a good chunk of the cost.
Contrary to what their combat level suggests, abyssal demons are pretty weak with only mediocre accuracy and defence and a max hit of only 82 Life Points. Most of their combat level comes from their large amount of hitpoints; which makes them great monsters to train on (that is, assuming you don't become a nechryael by the time you finally reach 85 Slayer.)
Use enhanced excalibur, bunyips, food or whatever to heal and just hit them until they die. They're not that hard, really.
Just like in Real Life, beating the bottle can be very rewarding:
Weapons and Armour
- Abyssal whip (a slayer task just isn't a slayer task without that tangy zip... of the miracle whip. These are great for forcing banshees back into the kitchen.)
- Prune 2h sword (women belong in the kitchen; it's where all the knives are.)
- Prune Battleaxe (for really pissed off lumberjacks.)
- Prune Med Helm
- Prune Kiteshield
- Prune Square Shield
- Dragon Med Helm
- Grimy Ranarr (so windex... can actually be made using Herblore?)
- Grimy Avantoe (*drinks windextreme potion*)
- Grimy Lantadyme (*starts taking rapid poison damage*)
- Grimy Dwarf Weed (LOLI'MDEAD!)
- 7 or 50 RedRainDrop runes
- 3 or 45 BlueScale runes
- Infernal Ashes(every single time!)
- Crimson Charm(they're bloody charming aren't they?)
- 60 Noted Pure Essence(omg! flooressence!)
- Ferocious Ring(Only in Kuradal's Dungeon, that place has a nice ring to it.)
- Prune Bar(2 Smiths walk into a bar... One of them gets really hammered and comes out as a platebody.)
- Court Summons(No, these can't be used to summon basketball courts to do your bidding, although... that would be pretty cool.)
- Hard Clue Scroll(maybe the windex knew where to find the lost city of WindTexas.)
- Starved Ancient Effigy(No longer a slave to Jagex, you shall now be a slave to... this magic rock.)
- Abyssal Demon Head(Check it out runefappers, abyssal demons can give you head!)
- Abyssal demons sometimes teleport to squares adjacent to you while you are fighting them. This causes little problems as long as you have auto-retaliate on and attack the demons again when necessary.
- The teleporting phenomenon is likely caused by the windex bottles failing at the magic skill, (not that it matters.)
- As monsters, abyssal demons actually have decent drops and are a relatively worthwhile reward for getting to 85 Slayer. No one gives a shit.
