Pyrefiends are Slayer monsters that require level 30 Slayer to kill and are not to be confused with a pyrelord, a Summoning familiar. They are the weaker elemental cousin of the waterfiend but stronger than some icefiends, except the ones at Ghorrock Fortress. Also, they have very similar drops to those of lesser demons and harpie bug swarms and are notable for their relatively high drop rate for medium clue scrolls.

A variant of pyrefiends can be found in Soul Wars. These count for Slayer tasks.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]

Despite their level, they have higher accuracy than many other monsters of a similar level, so food is recommended for lower levelled players. It is also recommended that either mage or range is used, since they have moderate melee defence due to being mage monsters.

Pyrefiends are weak against bolts. Use of the Defence abilities work well, especially Resonance. Note that a dwarf multicannon cannot be used in any of their locations except for the Smoke Dungeon.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Drop rates estimated based on 26,268 kills from the Drop Log Project, unless otherwise cited.

The average Pyrefiend kill is worth 4,769 coins.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."

Graphical updates[edit | edit source]

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • ninja 26 August 2014 (Update):
    • Pyrefiend and icefiend models and animations have been updated to use the God Wars models and animations.
  • patch 9 November 2009 (Update):
    • Greatly sped up the death animation of pyrefiends.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The pyrefiends in the Soul Wars tutorial have a life point and are weak to crush. Nomad doesn't let players attack these though.
  • Pyrefiends used to have significant stalling on their combat animations, causing them to appear in a different tile from where they actually were. This was reduced with their graphical update in 2014.
