Feral Vampyres are dangerous creatures found in the Haunted Woods, near the Abandoned Mine, and in the God Wars Dungeon. They are aggressive, and will attack anyone. They appear to be a weaker, more animalistic creature than other vampyres, and can be harmed by all weapons. Feral vampyres always drop Vampyre dust. Having garlic in your inventory does not weaken Feral Vampyres.
The feral vampyres found in the Haunted Woods and Abandoned Mine will occasionally bite players, which can sometimes drain stats and will cause the vampyre to recover a small amount of hitpoints. Feral vampyres also heal 1 hit point when attacked, similar to Banshees. The chance of this can be decreased by wearing a holy symbol, but not entirely prevented.
The level 72 feral vampyres are significantly harder to kill than the level 61 feral vampyres. They will only spawn when the spiders in the Haunted Woods are staring at players, so if you want to avoid them, stay away from the spiders.
Additionally, held Vampyre Juveniles and Vampyre Juvinates may sometimes be turned into feral vampyres when a guthix balance potion is used on them. These feral vampyres do not bite players to heal themselves, and have no drops besides Vampyre dust.
