Feral vampyres are dangerous creatures found in the Haunted Woods east of Canifis and near the Abandoned Mine. They are weaker, devolved vampyre juvinates, and are a much more animalistic creature than the other vampyres. Unlike most vampyres, they are vulnerable to all weapon types, not just silver and blisterwood. They are, however, weakened by players wearing a holy symbol.
They will occasionally bite players' necks, which can sometimes drain combat stats and will cause the feral vampyre to recover a small amount of life points.
Hunting and rewardsEdit
Feral vampyres are usually hunted for the slayer skill. They offer mediocre to decent value drops, depending on the price of vampyre dust. Before the discovery of Summoning, vampyre dust had no use and most players refused to collect it. The few who did allegedly made some money in the early days of Summoning, when players levelling up the skill would buy the dust at high prices.
A good spot to kill feral vampyres is the south-east corner of the woods, just outside the wall gate of Port Phasmatys. Using a cannon in this area would be useful because there are many safe spots, which include the huge mushrooms and trees, where player may hide and not receive damage.
Players hunting feral vampyres for Slayer tasks may wish to hunt the feral vampyres at the Abandoned Mine, due to the presence of leeches in the Haunted Woods which can be frustrating to deal with when trying to finish a task quickly.
Characteristics and historyEdit
Feral vampyres are savage beasts that were once Vampyre Juveniles and Juvinates, but have become considerably less intelligent, and have much less control over their powers. They are driven by their hunger and a kind of primal rage, unlike most other vampyric beings. Players are able to turn juveniles and juvinates into a similar state with the use of a guthix balance potion.

- Vampyres were graphically updated on 17 August 2011.
- The different levels of vampyre each have different sounds when attacking, but they all have the same sound when attempting to bite you.
- They appear to wear a damaged version of a Vampyre Juvinate's outfit.
- Feral vampyres used to be called vampires, but this was changed on 31 August 2011 in a hidden update for an unknown reason. Their name was changed yet again on 20 July 2015 to their current name in order to differentiate them from the other members of their race.
