Invasion plans
This article is a strategy guide for Bloodveld.
Information on mechanics, setups, and tactics is on this page.

Bloodveld are assigned as a Slayer task by VannakaChaeldar, Sumona, Duradel/Lapalok and Kuradal. They are very weak to almost any type of combat (like demons), but are weakest against fire spells. They have a high amount of life points, but deal very low damage in return. As they use melee attacks, using magic equipment will be an advantage.

Bloodveld will use melee, so they can be easily killed with an aggression potion and cannon. The bloodveld found in the Meiyerditch dungeon are also around mutated bloodveld. They have a high drop rate of green charms and blood runes.

Pernix and Armadyl are of the range class and have a negative melee attack bonus, so it would be favourable to use Karil's, Royal or Black dragonhide if you have sufficient healing and defence.

If using prayers, be sure to use a magic protection prayer. Bring equipment or supplies like prayer potions to restore prayer points as needed. Alternatively, in places of supplies, if using the Slayer Tower, wear an Ardougne cloak 3 or better and bring a ring of slaying. Teleport to the Kandarin Monastery using the cloak to recharge prayer and use the ring to teleport back to the tower.

If not using prayers, bring food and/or a healing familiar.


Wear high magic-defence ranged armour (such as good dragonhide armour or Armadyl armour, for some examples). A good bow or crossbow will suffice but when fighting the regular (non-God Wars) bloodveld, thrown weapons such as rune knives or blisterwood stakes will do the most damage. At high range level and Momentum activated, 2h crossbows are also very effective.

Bloodveld are weak to Magic, and can be quickly and efficiently slain with a polypore staff. The Greater runic staff is also very effective, as it can be charged with runes for spells, allowing players to exploit their weakness to fire spells without wasting any inventory space.
