Vyrewatch/Strategies

Vyrelords/Vyreladies are high ranking vampyres found in the upper tier area of Darkmeyer. They're aggressive, unless you are wearing the full Darkmeyer or House Drakan outfit (a combination of both works). They can be fought and killed to get combat, firemaking, and prayer exp as well as being able to make a profit.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

A great area to kill these monsters is near the altar located west of the Darkmeyer bank which allows you to use prayers whilst they aggressively swarm you. There are two Vyre spawns right behind the tree - this is the best location to kill them effectively without the Soul Split curse.

If Soul Split is unavailable, it is instead recommended to use food or a healing familiar such as bunyip or better.

The Protect From Magic prayer and the Devotion ability are very useful in negating damage.

If Soul Split is unlocked, the most effective location to kill Vyres is near a large tree south-southwest of the bank. As many as six vyrelords can attack at the same time, causing rapid damage that cannot be sustained without Soul Split.

While any style can technically be used for killing vyres (as the Sunspear can change combat styles), melee is the best when using Soul Split, due to its array of high-damage AoE abilities.

Without Morytania legs 4, at the two-vyre tree spot, you can expect in the vicinity of 150,000 Prayer experience per hour, and at the six-vyre tree spot, around 400,000 Prayer experience per hour using melee.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Suggested skills[edit | edit source]

78 Attack
78 Ranged
78 Magic
80 Defence
92 Prayer recommended

Other[edit | edit source]

  • Recommended to have augmented versions of the sunspear equipped with Precise, Equilibrium, and/or Aftershock perks.
  • Have the quiver filled with at least one rune arrow, so that all rune arrow drops, when picked up, will go into the quiver.
  • Have 500 corpses burnt.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

They are good for training due to the increased hits provided by the use of blisterwood weapons, all of which hit very high on them. The sunspear combined with a strong off-hand weapon (e.g. drygores, enhanced excalibur, Off-hand blisterwood sickle - in legacy mode, only sickle is effective) is the most effective, given its higher bonuses and passive effect of auto-cremation.

Using the Sunspear (magic) can give 250,000 or more experience per hour. Abilities such as asphyxiate will kill vyres extremely quickly, and Metamorphosis or Sunshine to help speed up kills in general.

Using the Sunspear (ranged) and Holy overload potion (6) potions to kill the vyrelords can give upwards of 160,000 experience per hour. An alternative is to use the altar as it can easily be accessed, one can stay here for a very long time by using the Soul Split curse to heal from the high ability hits, restoring prayer points at the altar as necessary. Using Death's Swiftness can give easy kills in a few abilities.

  • Due to vyres low chance of rolling on the RDT table, an Asylum surgeon's ring might be of better use.
