Pyrefiends can be assigned as a Slayer task at level 30 Slayer and level 25 combat.

Pyrefiends attack with magic-based melee, meaning armour that provides magic defense should be worn or Protect from Melee should be used with Prayer equipment, alternatively Prayer flick.

Safespots[edit | edit source]

Safespots can be done with Ranged or Magic attacks, or a halberd. Pyrelords can be Safespotted shown below, by putting a tree between the player and a pyrelord. Because pyrefiends are 1x1 size monsters, they cannot easily be safespotted, unlike 2x2 pyrelords, and require obstacles that can be attacked over or pathing the pyrefiend to a safespot. They can also be flinched while taking minimal damage.

Players can safespot multiple Pyrefiends by standing in this spot in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon.
Players can safespot Pyrelords by putting a tree in front of them and the Pyrelord.
