Soul Reaper is a daily Distraction and Diversion which involves the player helping Death to harvest to souls of RuneScape's boss monsters. The player can visit Death's office every day to be tasked with reaping the soul of a specific boss monster, which, when the task is complete, will reward the player with Slayer experience and Reaper points.
It must be noted that Soul Reaper is independent from the Slayer skill and the slayer helm does not grant its usual combat bonuses on Reaper tasks.
Starting Soul Reaper
To start a Soul Reaper task, the player must speak to Death in his office, accessed via a portal north of the Draynor lodestone. Death will proceed to tell the player about the imbalance of life and death within RuneScape and will give the player a grim gem and assign them their first task. The player will also be offered a choice between having group bosses offered (Nex, Kalphite King, Barrows: Rise of the Six, and Vorago) or just to focus on solo bosses.
Tasks may be re-rolled up to five times per day; however, each subsequent re-roll after the first will result in a 25% reduction in Reaper points gained from the task. Players can normally only be assigned and complete one task a day unless they purchase the "Additional Tasks" reward and use slayer points to be purchase additional Reaper tasks. Players can use the grim gem to receive more tasks from Death, check their current progress and reroll tasks instead of having to go back to his office.
For players who have started but not completed Missing, Presumed Death, Death's clanmate Frank has stepped into Death's shoes and assigns Reaper tasks until the quest is finished.
A list of assignments is below, bosses marked with an asterisk (*) are only assigned when the group bosses option is enabled. With this option enabled, the player receives 25% additional reaper points per task completed. Players also earn a points bonus for reaper task milestones, with 10 extra points earned after 10 tasks.
Some bosses can be completed in hard mode for 25% additional slayer experience and reaper points, however the whole task must be completed in hard mode to gain additional rewards.
The rewards interface for Soul Reaper can be found by visiting Death as before and talking to him. Many rewards can be bought
with either reaper points or slayer points, but some of the more valuable rewards can only be bought with reaper points. Players
that defeat many bosses can claim titles and the cosmetic vanquisher's armour depending on the number of bosses slain, which can be viewed by
navigating to the Beasts tab in the Adventurers interface.
The incomplete hydrix can be combined with a cut onyx to create very powerful jewellery, however this comes at a cost - after 10 hours of combat they degrade completely to dust. Group assignments and loot beam options can also be toggled and customised in this interface.
Note: For players seeking to option the full set of cosmetic vanquisher’s armour, completing the fight caves to add to their TzTok-Jad killcount will not be required, as reaching Har-Aken in the fight kiln requires 7 TokHaar-Jad to be fought and killed in earlier waves.
