Nechryael icon

Nechryael are Chthonian demons that require level 80 Slayer to kill. They are found on the top floor, northwest corner of the Slayer Tower in Morytania and in the Chaos Tunnels. They are the only monster to drop rune boots.


Cannons cannot be used as a means to kill them as cannons are not permitted in either of the places nechryaels can be found, but these demons are considered weak for their level. With low life points, low damage and mediocre defence, they can be easily defeated using a powerful crush weapon (their weakness), such as a chaotic maul, dual wielded drygore maces, or the Superior kyzaj. They can also be killed fairly effectively with slashing or stabbing weapons.

A nechryael's main attack is a two handed clawing move that hits up to 276 life points. When engaged in melee combat, a nechryael may randomly summon up to two level 95 death spawns to assist it. These death spawns have a meagre 500 life points and a low max hit of 10 life points, but are very accurate. They can be ignored by high level players, however they can be a nuisance for lower level players.

Most players with a high defence choose to ignore the Death spawn completely because they inflict so little damage that they are not worth the time to defeat. With a two-handed weapon, abilities such as Quake and Hurricane can quickly kill the death spawn without diverting attention away from the nechryael.

Using a Guthan's set against a nechryael is extremely effective if the player has high combat stats.

For those who wish to mage or range nechryael in the Slayer Tower, there is a hole in the floor in the southern part of the room that can be effectively used as a safespot. Another good strategy is to stand behind a death spawn so the nechryael will get trapped behind it. The roof area contains several objects that can be used for safespots, such as a skeleton lying on the floor.

Also a good tip is to use the ability Sacrifice on the death spawns - the ability will usually kill them immediately due to their low constitution, healing the player for 500 life points.

  • The word nechryael appears to be an unchanging irregular plural noun, being both the singular and plural as indicated by slayer masters when assigning them and giving tips on fighting them and by the ring of slaying when checking the progress of the assignment.
  • The old graphics of Nechryael had a pentagram on its chest, a symbol of many religions and a sign that has many occult meanings. Meanwhile, in the current graphics, they don't even have a chest, featuring a body that has been cut open and hollow inside.
  • When trying to write "Nechryael" on the Notes block, the game will censor it, showing up "Ne**ryael". It is currently unknown if this is a glitch or not.
  • Mod Jack revealed[1] on Twitter that Nechryael's are the spawn of Duke Orcus.
  • The nechryael's arrival at the Slayer Tower is mentioned in a journal found near the aberrant spectres in the Tower.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 90,339 kills[2].


  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Jack's Twitter account. 23 June 2014. Mod Jack: "@Enquidou In my system the Nechryael are definitely Chthonians. I have them specifically as the spawn of Orcus. That's not canon yet though."
  2. ^ Mod Shauny. Top 10 killers per Boss. 2 Feb 2018. "Here are the top 10 kills for each Slayer creature in RuneScape, be aware that we've not listed display names for privacy purposes however if you wish to brag about one number being yours then we won't stop you!"
