The Bovine Slayer group is a Super Slayer to most cow-like creatures. This Item Property is found on Talismans and a single weapon, the Butcher's War Cleaver. The Damage Increase imparted by Talismans does not apply to magic spells cast by the wearer. However, the Damage Increase from both talisman-based and instrument/spellbook/weapon-based Slayers is cumulative, or stacks, subject to the 300% cap. This Slayer does double damage to the following creatures:
- Minotaurs are not subject to double damage from the Butcher's War Cleaver.
- Tests indicate, however, that they are vulnerable to Bovine Slayer Talismans.
- Sources indicate that they are vulnerable to the Repond Super Slayer.
- A low level character who is seeking a good source of leather can easily dispatch Gaman when equipped with both talisman and cleaver.
