    i'm about to do a few new sets of pvm super slayers.

    i was wondering if there is a consensus on what is the best damage type and best hit area effect for each super slayer group.

    here are my guesses:

    undead - fire
    reptile - cold
    demon - energy
    repond - cold
    arachnid - fire
    elemental - chaos

    any input would be appreciated. thanks!

    Repond is Fire, with Frost Trolls and Arctic Ogre Lords. Most other Reponds have Cold Resist that is equal to their Fire Resist. Corpse Skin makes Fire an even better option.

    there is no best...period. for doing baracoon champ spawn a repond with 100 energy exceeds all other if you crunch the numbers...but if you are doing arctic ogre lords it is fire.... there is no simple best. Especially if you get to elemental. And chaos damage can be a total waste, since many elementals are 100 resistant to a particular type of damage...so if chaos bow selects poison damage against a poison elemental...you are screwed. Short answer is there is no short answer...you have to figure out what you hunt and plan accordingly....then make lesser slayers for other things!

    Agree with Timber, there's a lot of variance. I would say the best way to go about it is to do it for the last two levels of each champ spawn, and the monster that is the hardest out of the two. For example on Demon spawn Demons are weakest to Poison, Succubi weakest to Cold, but Demons die easier in the first place so go for Cold.

    Arachnid and Undead go for Fire. Reptile is Cold for some things Poison for others, I seem to remember doing Fire for Ophidians (an invasion) but that might just have been because I liked the sound effect lol.

    Sorry to bump an old thread but better than making a new one I guess.

    I'm planning on making a set of super slayer short bows to use at champ spawns. I'm going to go for 100% elemental with the equivalent hit area damage.

    Undead and arachnid will be fire but would repond be cold? and are the listings in the first post correct? (with regards to champ spawns).

    Listing from above:

    undead - fire
    reptile - cold
    demon - energy
    repond - cold
    arachnid - fire
    elemental - chaos

    Also with reforging the bows to get 100% elemental damage what hammer and setup do I need? I'm guessing "of quality" but what kit and do I need powerful etc?

    I use energy for repond slayer and physical for elemental slayer.

    If you want to hedge your bets on repond, you could make the area effect a different elemental than what the primary damage elemental is.
