It depends on your template, suit, what you're hunting, PvE or PvP, etc.

It is wise for warriors to use a Bird Slayer talisman if they're hunting:
  • Phoenix
  • Pyre
  • Saliva
  • Swoop
since the talisman will give additional (slayer) damage bonus. Totem of the Void is an artifact talisman with Hit Point Regeneration 2 and Lower Mana Cost 10%.

You can check different unique talismans here:

Everyone must be on crack. Bird slayers are good for hunting swoop or harpies, no more.

Use a primer on arms damage removal for the extra damage increase. Or use totem of the void for the lower mana costs.

You really need to evaluate your entire suit and weapon when choosing a talisman to use.

Slayers are especially nice when you are after a specific type of prey, but can be dangerous if you forget to change them.... an example of that would be using the Undead slaying talisman while fighting Repond monsters. Opposite slayer groups do double damage to you!

Actually, according to UO stratics, even harpies are excluded from the Bird Slayer attribute. The one useful piece of info i was able to find.

I am doing Archer/Spellweaving for PvM. I am not PvP at all. I think I am gonna go with Totem of the Void.

Harpies should have been vulnerable to both Repond and Bird slayers from a logical perspective, yet they dont have any slayers.

Carrying nine different slayer talismans on my archer just in case :) (even Bovine and Beetle slayers). I'm using Primer on Arms for 20% damage increase since I have enough lower mana cost coming from other equipment.
