Banshee FAQs

Below is some of the most frequently asked questions by players in osrs looking to kill Banshee for the first time.

Does the effects of the Salve Amulet work?

Yes, the salve amulet will work when killing Banshee. However, it will not stack with the effects of a slayer helmet. It is only recommended to kill Banshee if you’re on a slayer task so the salve amulet is not really important here.

What is a Twisted Banshee and where to find it?

The Twisted Banshee is a stronger variant of the regular Banshee. The Twisted variants can be found exclussively in the Catacombs of Kourend. These are generally not worth killing unless you are passively hunting dark totem pieces for Skotizo while training slayer.

What if I don’t wear my slayer helmet or earmuffs?

When killing Banshees, players must wear either earmuffs or a slayer helmet. This protects against the banshees screams, which would usually result in the player taking 6 damage and significantly reducing your combat stats and agility levels.
