Greater Nechryael

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Greater Nechryael are stronger variants of nechryael that require level 80 Slayer to kill. They are found within the Catacombs of Kourend and the Iorwerth Dungeon.

Like normal nechryael, Greater Nechryael can summon up to two Death spawn when fighting a player. These Death spawn are the same as the ones summoned by normal nechryael. Using Protect from Melee is recommended, as the Greater Nechryael is more accurate and deals even more damage. Arclight can be very effective against Greater Nechryael, as these are considered to be demonic creatures.

Unlike the twisted banshee, mutated bloodveld, deviant spectre and warped jellies, who have corresponding superior creatures, Greater Nechryael do not. They simply get the normal nechryarch instead, although its drop table corresponds to that of Greater Nechryael.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Much like Dust devils, Greater Nechryael in the Catacombs of Kourend are popularly killed using Ice Burst or Ice Barrage, as you are able to clump them up into a pile and hit them all simultaneously. To do this, turn on Protect from Melee, then attack the nechryael in the chamber they're in with a fast ranged weapon (such as cheap darts or knives) or the special attack of the Dinh's bulwark to get them aggressive towards you. Run to a side of the room which has two corners adjacent to each other and run back and forth between the two corners so that the nechryael pile on top of each other.

Due to their very low Magic defence, it's important to use equipment that maximises Magic damage instead of accuracy, such as a tormented bracelet or an occult necklace. Otherwise, wear items that give Prayer bonus to increase the usefulness of your prayer potions. Bringing along runes to cast Blood Burst/Barrage can also help extend your trips due to the fact that the summoned Death spawns can hit through your prayer. You can be healed up to full in as little as two casts if the nechryael are stacked, making it much more effective than bringing food. Bringing along a super defence potion or sipping a dose before leaving the bank will help to take less damage.

When bursting or barraging, it is recommended to pay some attention in case of Nechryarch spawns, as it is likely that players automatically attack it and its chaotic death spawns deal high damage through magic based gear. Some options to deal with it include switching to Blood Barrage to outheal the damage taken (provided that there are more regular Nechryael next to it), using ice spells to safespot it, or running away when the spawns appear to lose their aggression and coming back.

If not planning to burst/barrage Greater Nechryael, it's recommended to go to the Iorwerth Dungeon instead if the player has completed Song of the Elves, as players can use a dwarf multicannon to kill Greater Nechryael there.
