Bloodveld are a type of demon that use their long tongues to attack their victims. Being a Slayer monster, Bloodveld require a Slayer level of 50 to be damaged by players. As a demon, it is affected by demonbane weapons.
Bloodveld are one of few monsters that attack with magic-based melee, meaning that despite it using melee attacks against the player, it is the player's magic defence (rather than their melee defence) that is used to determine the accuracy of the Bloodveld's attack. As such, it is recommended for players killing Bloodveld to equip armour with decent magic defence, such as dragonhide, as they are relatively accurate in combat. Players using Prayer should still pray melee instead of magic to nullify damage.
They can be safespotted on the north-eastern corner of the centre room of the Slayer Tower behind the chair, or they can also be safespotted next to the armour stands and wardrobes around the walls of the central room. In the task-only basement floor, they can be safespotted in the north-west corner of the area by standing in between the chest, chair, broken table and shelves. Bringing nature runes for alchemy spells is a good idea, as they frequently drop fire runes and items with a decent high alchemy value.
They can also be safespotted in the Stronghold Slayer Cave while using a dwarf multicannon in the north-east section of the Bloodveld area, but this area is usually busy. Another safespot in the Stronghold Slayer Cave is in the east room, north of some rocks and east of a pillar.
In the God Wars Dungeon, they can be safespotted behind the piles of bricks directly north-east of the exit rope. Both a Saradomin item and Zamorak item are required to use this safespot. Another safespot will be even further north-east, between the two rock formations and arrow (scenery) on the coast, which only requires a Zamorak item once in the safespot.
As an alternative, players can also choose to slay mutated Bloodveld for their task. Mutated Bloodveld are the stronger variants of Bloodveld, and are a greater challenge but provide more valuable drops and more Slayer experience. A really good spot for this is in Meiyerditch Laboratories using your attack style of choice and a dwarf multicannon, due to the Laboratories being a Multicombat area. A cannon can be used in conjunction with a safespot, saving a considerable amount of resources. Bring lots of prayer or super restore potions, your best gear/combat bonuses etc, and use Protect from Melee ( which requires lvl 43) If you use the prayer, food is unnecessary as you will never take damage.
Players seeking an effective way to gain prayer experience can also choose to slay reanimated Bloodveld for their task. Access to the Arceuus spellbook and a supply of ensouled Bloodveld heads is needed. This alternative method is more time-consuming and results in much less Slayer experience for each monster killed
Mutated Bloodveld are stronger variants of Bloodveld that require level 50 Slayer to kill. They are found within the Catacombs of Kourend, Iorwerth Dungeon and the Meiyerditch Laboratories.
Like regular Bloodveld, a mutated Bloodveld's attacks are magic-based melee. They drop Vile ashes so an Ash sanctifier is recommended. They are known to damage frequently due to their high attack level, so equipping armour with high Magic defence is also recommended to mitigate their attacks. They can also be safespotted with ease. Alternatively, players can opt to wear Prayer equipment while using the Protect from Melee prayer, using Prayer potions instead of food. Players can also teleport to an altar and then teleport back to the Catacombs instead of using prayer potions, since these Bloodveld are so close to the entrance.
Mutated Bloodveld are popular for players willing to spend time completing their task, as they provide better experience than normal Bloodveld. They also drop blood runes at a higher rate compared to normal Bloodveld, in addition to the ancient shard and dark totem pieces they drop in the Catacombs of Kourend, and the crystal shards they drop in the Iorwerth Dungeon. On average, a player can expect to receive 3.6 blood runes per mutated Bloodveld kill.
While on a Bloodveld Slayer task, there is a 1/200 chance that an insatiable mutated Bloodveld will spawn after you kill a mutated Bloodveld (if you have Bigger and Badder unlocked).
The insatiable bloodveld is a superior variant of the bloodveld. It has a chance of spawning after purchasing the unlock Bigger and Badder for 150 Slayer reward points from any Slayer master. Bloodveld slain in the God Wars Dungeon and Wilderness God Wars Dungeon do not have a chance of spawning their superior variant.
The insatiable mutated bloodveld is a superior version of mutated bloodveld. It has a chance of spawning after purchasing the unlock Bigger and Badder for 150 Slayer reward points from any Slayer master.
