Equip Earmuffs or Slayer Helmet:

Before engaging with Banshees, ensure you are wearing earmuffs, a Slayer helmet, or a mask of the abyss. Without these, you cannot damage them.

Combat Approach:

Use your preferred combat style (melee, ranged, or magic) to defeat Banshees.

Protection Prayers: Consider using protection prayers (e.g., Protect from Melee) to reduce damage taken.

Slayer Dart: If you have a Magic level of 55, you can use the Slayer Dart spell, which is highly effective against Banshees.

Additional Tips:

1. Ammo Preservation: If you're using Ranged or Magic, consider bringing a rune pouch to store your ammunition or runes. This can help conserve inventory space.

2. Banshee Variants: There are two variants of Banshees in OSRS: the "Twisted Banshee" and the "Banshee Champion." These variants have unique mechanics and drops, so be prepared for different challenges and rewards when assigned these tasks.

3. Efficient Prayer Management: Banshees have a chance of draining your Prayer points with their scream attack. To minimize this, use Prayer potions strategically. You can also pray at the nearby altar in the Slayer Tower to restore your Prayer points.

4. Banshee Safespotting: In the Slayer Tower, there are safespots where you can attack Banshees without taking damage. This is especially useful for lower-level players. Experiment with positioning to find these spots.

5. Looting Ensouled Heads: If you receive Ensouled Banshee Heads as drops, consider using the Arceuus spellbook's reanimation spells on them for Prayer experience. This can be a valuable way to train Prayer.

6. Banking: The Canifis bank is conveniently located near the Slayer Tower. Consider banking your drops regularly to extend your trips and maximize your profit.

7. High-Level Slayer: While Banshees are a low to mid-level Slayer task, they remain relevant in high-level Slayer training due to their unique drops. Completing these tasks efficiently can still yield good rewards.

By following these additional tips, you can make the most of your Banshee Slayer tasks, whether you're a beginner or an experienced Slayer. Enjoy your adventures in the Slayer Tower!
