Not to be confused with Torrell.

Turael was the lowest level Slayer Master, along with his daughter Spria. Turael resided in Taverley. Unlike other Slayer Masters, there was no Slayer or combat level requirement for players to receive Slayer assignments from him.

If asked, Turael could change a player's Slayer task assigned by a different master to one that he would assign. He only did this once per assignment, and only if the first assignment was for a creature that Turael himself would not assign. After completion of Smoking Kills, changing a task in this way would reset the task count back to zero. Turael's tasks also did not award Slayer reward points upon completion, nor did they count for the five no-point tasks before beginning to gain them.

He is involved in the Animal Magnetism and While Guthix Sleeps quests. During While Guthix Sleeps, he is killed by Lucien and is later replaced by his daughter, Spria.


Early lifeEdit

Turael excelled in Slayer and combat, and eventually rose to the rank of a Slayer Master. Turael married and had a daughter, Spria, whom he trained even at a young age to fight various creatures. Under Turael's tutelage, Spria excelled in Slayer and combat. Turael aspired to eventually retire and have his daughter replace him as Slayer Master.

Assisting AvaEdit

The following takes place during Animal Magnetism.

Ava, a budding scientist and young assistant to the Professor of Draynor Manor, moved into Draynor Manor and sought to improve the residence by providing a new bed. Among the materials she needed to create the bed are twigs from an undead tree in the area. Turael, or his daughter Spria if he is replaced, assists the adventurer by offering a blessed hatchet, which can cut down undead trees, in exchange for a mithril hatchet and a holy symbol of Saradomin. With Turael's, or Spria's, help, the adventurer is successfully able to provide all required materials for Ava's new bed. Turael, and also Spria, continue to offer blessed hatchets after Ava's mission is complete.

Fighting LucienEdit

The following takes place during While Guthix Sleeps.

Turael joined a band of eight heroes recruited by the adventurer to fight Lucien. During this time, Spria was formally given the position of Slayer Master and assumed Turael's responsibilities, as Turael was unable to serve his usual functions as a Slayer Master during this mission. These eight heroes jointly attempted to save the adventurer from Lucien after the adventurer's identity was compromised. Turael was one of the six who perished in the ensuing battle. Despite his considerable strength as a human, he was no match for the immensely powerful Lucien, who wielded the Staff of Armadyl at the time. During the battle, he tried to directly attack Lucien with his Steel halberd, but it simply broke without dealing any damage. On Turael's death, the adventurer vowed to avenge him. Turael was succeeded as a Slayer Master by his daughter, Spria. Statues of him were built in front of the Slayer Tower, White Knights' Castle, and Falador Park in his honour, alongside statues of the other Slayer Master who perished in the battle, Duradel.

He planned to retire and take up viticulture and give Bernald some competition after killing Lucien, had he survived the battle, with Spria replacing him. Unfortunately, he never survived to fulfil this dream, though Spria did replace him, as he wished.

*Many slayer monsters have numerous variants of the monster assigned. This list is not inclusive of all variants. Please check the monster's page for more specific information about the different variants.

Slayer ChallengeEdit

Audio options icon
'ello, and what are you after then?

After a player has performed several slayer tasks for Turael, he will occasionally offer a special task in place of a regular slayer task. The player can decline to take the special task without penalty. If the player accepts the special task, completing the task earns 1000 Slayer experience (no Slayer experience is earned during the task).


A player completing their Slayer Challenge in Turael's Dungeon

Turael's special task is for the player to slay, in a single trip, all of the beasts in Turael's basement. The monsters are:

  • Lvl 5 goblin (2)
  • Lvl 11 goblin (2)
  • Lvl 6 goblin (1)
  • Lvl 11 wolf (2)
  • Lvl 14 wolf (3)
  • Lvl 44 minotaur

After the Troll Warzone update, his basement has been moved directly west of the nearby cow pen in the southern area of Burthorpe, near Taverley.

Task weightingEdit

The percentage chance of getting assigned a given slayer task can be calculated using the formula

$ \frac{w}{S} \times 100% $

where $ w $ is the task's weight and $ S $ is the sum of all weights for the particular slayer master. Note that the weights of all blocked tasks, as well as tasks toggled off have to be subtracted from the sum $ S $. Preferring a task doubles its chance of being assigned.

For Turael, assuming all possible assignments are available, S = 355.

  • The first task everyone gets from him is always Gelatinous abominations.
