Slash Bash is a zogre encountered during the Zogre Flesh Eaters quest. He uses both melee and ranged attacks. He is very difficult as he can drain Prayer points and switch between devastating range and powerful melee. However, it is possible to use mage or ranged from behind the stand or a stack of bones, and then he can only damage the player using ranged.
As with all Zogres, brutal arrows are his weakness. Other attacks, such as melee, will be futile, as they can only hit up to 25% of the normal max hit (for example, up to 50 if a player normally hits up to 200) on Slash Bash. Taking more than (approximately) 10 minutes will result in Slash Bash disappearing in a puff of smoke and a message stating "The huge Slash Bash grows weary of your feeble attempts at combat and awaits a true challenge."
It is possible to safe spot him using brutal arrows or combat spells. Using Protect from Missiles prayer with this method will reduce the damage taken significantly. People mostly prefer using rune brutal arrows due to their considerably high power.
Zogre Flesh EatersEdit
He has a minor but important role in the quest, Zogre Flesh Eaters. When the Ogres find out that the zogre curse is irreversible, they decide to make their sacred burial ground in another spot, but for it to be sacred, the hero must retrieve the ancient sacred artefact that was left behind in the Zogre Caves. When the hero tries to take the artefact Slash Bash enters and attacks him/her, only to be slain by the hero.
Slash Bash inhabits the deepest part of the Zogre Caves, the ancient chamber, a locked room where the ancient sacred artefact is kept. The room is beyond the two stone doors, and down a set of stairs; it contains several other zogres.
- It was suggested in the 39th Postbag from the Hedge that Slash Bash could be an undead ourg, a long dead species with only one currently living member, or just an abnormally large undead ogre.
- Slash Bash appears to be wearing the artefact you are sent to retrieve on his head, which explains why he drops it when he dies.
