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. The death animation of pyrefiends was greatly sped up as of 9 November 2009 when they were removed from Ghorrock Fortress. Note: several glitches occur when fighting pyrefiends, such as drops showing up behind the player and combat taking place either in the same square as the player or with a one square gap between the player and the target while using melee attacks. However, these glitches do not affect drops or combat.

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. It has been confirmed that killing pyrefiends in Soul Wars does in fact count towards the Slayer assignment's total kills. Note that a dwarf multicannon cannot be used while killing pyrefiends in the Slayer Dungeon.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The average Pyrefiend kill is worth 3,905.01 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."

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. 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.
