Pyrefiend icon

Pyrefiends are a slayer monster that require level 30 Slayer to kill. As their attacks are magic based, it is recommended to wear armour with a high magic defence bonus, such as Dragonhide.

Strength and WeaknessEdit

The Pyrefiend's attack is based on your magic defence, so it is highly recommended that you wear dragonhides or other ranged armour. You can use any combat type to kill these monsters, preferably Magic since they have low resistance to Water spells. If you plan to use melee and have 43 Prayer, you can flick the Protect from Melee prayer. An alternative method would be to use the safespot with a halberd that you have the skill requirement to use (preferably a Rune halberd if you have 20 Strength and 40 Attack, or a Dragon halberd if you have completed Regicide and have 30 Strength and 60 Attack.) Also, do not let their max hit fool you as they hit with great accuracy, even through ranged armour. 


You can safespot multiple Pyrefiends by standing in this spot in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon.
