Count Draynor Drakan lives in a coffin in the basement of Draynor Manor. He is responsible for many deaths of avid adventurers who have fallen prey to his sharp fangs. Count Draynor is the target in the Vampire Slayer quest which requires the player to kill him to save the people of Draynor Village, who have been terrorised by Count Draynor for centuries. He is the weakest vampire in RuneScape, owing to his leaving Morytania and dwelling west of the River Salve.
He can be fought in the Nightmare Zone after the quest is complete. You won't need a stake then.
Killing Count Draynor does count towards vampire slayer tasks.
Fighting[edit | edit source]
The health recovery rate of Count Draynor is very high - about six times the rate of ordinary monsters. This rate decreases if the player has garlic in their inventory. Due to his health regeneration, he provides greatly reduced Combat experience when fighting him.
Count Draynor can be harmed with ordinary weapons, but cannot be killed by them. Once his health is low enough, players must drive a stake through his heart using a hammer in order to deal the final blow. If a player does not use the hammer and stake, he will heal to full health when his health points are low. Having decent food will help for very low level players.
However, due to Count Draynor's low magic defence, low class combat spells like Earth Strike and Fire Strike can also severely damage him, and may be a viable option. If players decide to kill him with magic, many armours add negative stats to Magic accuracy, so players should be advised to not wear them until they come in to use the stake for the kill. With full magic gear, a level 9 mage can kill him by bringing about 10 pieces of tuna, depending on luck.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Count Draynor character is loosely based on Count Dracula from the 1897 horror novel of the same name.
- He is one of only two Vampyres to appear in free-to-play worlds. The other is Count Check.
- His monocle might be a reference to The Count from the children's television series Sesame Street.
