# Mandrith

Mandrith is a Slayer Master, caretaker of Deathmatch, and the brother of Nastroth. Mandrith is located opposite Vannaka in the ruins south of Edgeville bank. He allows players to exchange ancient artefacts dropped by revenants for coins, and sells rewards for Slayer Bounties and Deathmatch at the Slayer Bounty & Deathmatch Reward Shop. He is the former custodian of Bounty and PvP worlds, and both incarnations of Bounty Hunter prior to their removal.

He gives players the rewards for completing the Medium Wilderness achievements, which includes the Wilderness sword 2.

He has a brother named Nastroth, who is stationed in Lumbridge.

## History

Mandrith's old items: A backpack with a lantern and a sleeping bag, along with a very pointy stick, a rug that is filled with several items; a rope, a small chest, a few stones penguin spies hide in and Mandrith's personal collection of skulls.

This towering figure is descended from the first of the clans of men, whose legends speak of the first murder on Gielinor. For this crime, his people have been cursed to an eternity watching over those who would do the same. Given his terrifying dress, the massive blade he wields and his remarkable size, it is little wonder that he survived in the Wilderness. According to Mandrith his robes have been passed from father to son for generations. He appears to be equipped and skilled much like a player killer in old-style Wilderness: a fast and deadly weapon with little armour, wild-looking and incredibly strong, yet lacking in dexterity.

Mandrith used to be the custodian of the Wilderness Volcano when Bounty Hunter was hosted there (constantly bullying his banker, Maximillian Sackville), but had to close it due to a particularly violent eruption. Mandrith abandoned the volcano and moved to Edgeville when various monsters moved into the crater, where he began taking an interest in ancient artefacts, trading various amounts of coins in exchange for them.

According to Sanchez, when Mandrith was in the Wilderness, he hired Scotty and Sanchez to clean up for him, paying them 76,000 coins per hour.

### The Dragonkin

The following takes place during Ritual of the Mahjarrat.

Mandrith has some knowledge about the Dragonkin, which his people refer to as a "myth". When the Dragonkin warned the adventurer that the vision they gave them was just the start of things to come, they also informed them that they had attacked Edgeville. Mandrith, who was still there at the time, brought people to safety, but believed what he saw was a myth. When the adventurer told him their proper names, he quickly silenced them, warning them not to say their name again lest they return.

Mandrith would later recruit the adventurer once more (who was now the World Guardian) in the Sixth Age to "rebuild" Edgeville from the Dragonkin attack, fearing that the circulating rumours among the people would inspire another attack.

### Slayer Master

Eventually, Mandrith began hosting Bounty Hunter again, but due to low demand he shuttered operations and became a Slayer Master, assigning slayer bounties; combining perks and rewards from both Slayer and Bounty Hunter.

## Slayer Master

Mandrith is a Slayer Master focused on the Wilderness, requiring level 85 Slayer and a Combat Level of 120 to use. All his tasks - called Slayer Bounties, though they function the same as normal Slayer tasks (i.e. cannot have a bounty and a task active at the same time) - are for monsters that are in the Wilderness, and can only be completed in the Wilderness.

Unlike other Slayer Masters, Mandrith assigns tasks irrespective of whether the player has blocked or preferred them.

A Slayer task from Mandrith awards 20 Slayer points upon completion, though you need to complete 4 tasks from him before you start earning points. Mandrith's Wilderness tasks use a separate task counter to normal Slayer tasks, so points are earned from the 5th bounty completed onwards, even if you have a sizable task streak from other masters.

Upon completion of a Slayer Bounty set by Mandrith, if you do not already own one, a Bounty emblem (t1) is awarded. If you do own an emblem, and carry it for the entire task, completion awards 100 potential to the emblem, upgrading it if it reaches the required amount.

If a player is killed while carrying an emblem, it will downgrade by 1 tier. If the killer was another player, and they were also carrying an emblem, the killer's emblem is awarded half of the potential of the victim's original emblem tier is worth (e.g. upgrading t5 to t6 is 900 potential - if a player is killed while carrying a t6 emblem, it becomes t5 and the killer gains 450 potential into their emblem).

## Slayer points

Successfully completing a Slayer assignment confers an amount of Slayer points depending on how many tasks have been successfully completed in a row. After the Smoking Kills quest the amount is doubled. Completion of a task assigned by Mandrith after completing Smoking Kills will grant:

• 20 Slayer points for a normal task
• 100 for every 10th task
• 300 for every 50th task

This means that an average of 32 points is earned per task in each 50-task set, resulting in a total of 1600 points.

## Assignments

All of the following Slayer assignments have to be completed inside the Wilderness, kills outside of the Wilderness will not count towards completion of the assignment.

1. ^ Players need to own a fire cape or TokHaar-Kal (equipped, in player-owned house, in bank, or in inventory) or have purchased the ability to get an ice strykewyrm Slayer task for 2,000 Slayer points. Players must also have completed The Tale of the Muspah. Dropping all fire capes before obtaining a new task and picking them up afterwards can avoid this assignment.
2. ^ This is the level required to be assigned them as a task.

Note: Since Mandrith does not take Prefer/Block lists into account when assigning tasks, you should not consider changes associated with preferred/blocked tasks when calculating task weight.A dynamic calculator for task weight can be found here.

The percentage chance of getting assigned a given Slayer task can be calculated using the formula

${\displaystyle {\frac {w}{S}}\times 100\%}$

where ${\displaystyle w}$ is the task's weight and ${\displaystyle S}$ is the sum of all weights for the particular Slayer Master. Note that the weights of all blocked tasks, as well as tasks toggled off have to be subtracted from the sum ${\displaystyle S}$. For Mandrith, assuming all possible assignments are available, ${\displaystyle S}$ = 103.

Preferring a task makes it approximately twice as likely to be assigned, for the first assignment choice, but does not affect the weighting of the second assignment choice provided by a Slayer VIP ticket.[1]

### Slayer challenge

Mandrith's special slayer assignment is to slay 15 of each of his possible assignments, with an additional reward for killing the wilderness bosses. As lava strykewyrms are part of the assignment, level 94 Slayer is required to obtain and complete the assignment.

15 of each of the following are required to complete the assignment:

Killing 1 of each of these bosses grants an additional reward for killing all four:

The rewards for completing the assignment are:

• Mandrith has a crippling fear of skeletons, a weakness he keeps hidden.
