  • Creatures contributing to this achievement include: Hydras, Sand Eels, Sand Lions, Sand Sharks, Spotted Hyenas, Junundu and Wargs (only the Elonian variant).
  • Many of these creatures can be found in close proximity and on short respawn timers on the hills north of Waypoint (tango icon).png Olishar's Oasis Camp Waypoint.

Indiscriminate Slayer[edit]

  • Ambient (white name) creatures can be found almost everywhere in the game, particularly near outposts and inhabited areas. These creatures are useful for advancing kill achievements for off-hand or low-damage weapons like shields.

Creatures from other species (such as spiders and crabs) belong to their respective Slayer achievements.

  • A large number of ambient creatures in a small area can be found in the north camp of any WvW borderland.
  • There is a sewer found in the level 60 Personal Story Mission Forewarned is Forearmed for characters that have joined the Vigil. There is an endless supply of rats that run past at about 1 per second.
  • Grand Barrier Isle has groups of 3-5 crows that spawn with high frequency.
  • There are a great many ambient creatures in The Underbelly which is in the northern part of the Straits of Devastation.
  • There are many crows in the dead Pact camp in Onager Bivouac in Fireheart Rise. They respawn often.

Zhaitan's Bane[edit]


  • It is possible to use low level alt characters to get these kills, so they can benefit from experience, renouncing better drops from higher level foes.
  • Each dungeon offers at least 1 type of creature to be easily farmed.
    1. AC: Ghosts
    2. CM: Bandits
    3. TA: Nightmare
    4. SE: Dredge
    5. CoF: Flame Legion
    6. HotW: Son of Svanir
    7. CoE: Inquest
    8. Arah: Zhaitan's Army
  • Combining Slayer achievements with Weapon Master achievements is a good idea. Use the weapon you want to get the achievement for while killing the vast numbers of enemies required for Slayer achievements.
