History

After Zaros's fall, Zamorak sent the demons Avaryss, the Unceasing, Nymora, the Vengeful and their sister out to track down and eliminate the Dragon Riders who chose to remain loyal to Zaros. The demonic trio led a group of hellhounds to tear the Dragon Rider Morvannon apart. The demons however didn't know that an egg had avoided them as they expected the Ilujanka to be infertile. The egg was brought to safety by Morvannon's mount, the dragon Gorvek. Gorvek raised Morvannon's egg and the child that was born from it. He gave it the name Vindicta, meaning "revenge" in the Infernal language, in hopes that she would someday avenge Morvannon, the Ilujanka and Zaros.

Vindicta grew up in Gorvek's care in the Grotworm Lair. When she was old enough she decided to avenge her parents and race by slaying the Twin Furies. Gorvek trained Vindicta and recovered her mother's armour and weapons.

Vindicta and Gorvek were eventually led to the Heart in the Kharidian Desert, where they stood face to face with the Twin Furies as well as the Sliskean Gregorovic and the Serenist Helwyr. She calls upon the forces of Zaros to claim the Heart in his name, in addition to curing her dying race.

She acts as part of Zaros' entourage alongside Azzanadra and Char during Sliske's Endgame, where she initially confuses an adventurer as one of Zaros' enemies. Zaros tells her to stand down, as they are an invaluable asset to his plans.

Trivia

  • Vindicta is Latin for vengeance and retribution.
  • There was a bug upon release where during the phase transition, Vindicta and Gorvek were "taggable", resulting in the first player to "tag" them obtaining the main drop, even if they did less damage than the other players. This was hotfixed.
  • During the phase transition players can sometimes see Vindicta's weakness changing to crush attacks, where she can also be poisoned. This was fixed, and players can no longer deal poison during the transition phase.
  • Vindicta was originally intended to be a Chthonian demon, and was changed to an Ilujanka due to concept art drawn by a member of The Watch.[1]
  • After Vindicta mounts Gorvek during the Tales of the God Wars cutscene, her examine text becomes "More violent, more powerful, more dragon."
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this boss was 60,000 kills for normal mode and 1,355 for hard mode. At this time, this was the record for the most-killed boss in the Heart of Gielinor, equal with Helwyr[2].
    • This had increased to 62,201 for normal mode and 1,540 for hard mode by 6 May 2018.[3]. At this time, she was the most killed boss of the Heart of Gielinor.
  • She is the only boss in the Heart of Gielinor that is immune to the effects of poison in both her normal fight and her Challenge Mode fight. Gregorovic only has poison immunity in his Challenge Mode fight.
