Vyres are a popular mob type to camp due to their rewarding loot table, and the generous amount of experience awarded upon killing them. The preferred variants to kill are Vyrelords and Vyreladys, which can be found in Darkmeyer. Upon unlocking the Sunspear, vyre corpses can be automatically cremated upon killing them; making them a very cheap way of training Prayer prayer and Firemaking firemaking, whilst doing very low-input combat training.

⬥ Darkmeyer is unlocked after partial completion of The Branches of Darkmeyer quest; however, the reforged Sunspear is acquired during the River of Blood quest.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Completing the Morytania elite achievements is recommended due to the worn effect of the Morytania legs 4.


slayer XP per kill: 343.6

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• prayer XP per kill: 280 (420 with Morytania legs 4)

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• firemaking XP per kill: 200 (300 with Morytania legs 4)

⬥ Optimal kills per hour: ~1040 magic, ~1020 melee (Flagpole), ~900 range (Flagpole) (All AFK)

⬥ Optimal slayer XP per hour: ~357k magic, ~350k melee (Flagpole), ~309k range (Flagpole) (All AFK)

Desirable drops

⬥ Vyres have a very rewarding loot table, filled with Herblore supplies, seeds, and alchables; particularly useful in Ironman mode iron

⬥ Cremating 200 and 500 vyre corpses is required for the Shade-Shattering Ka-Bloom achiev and Ivan is Flailing achiev achievements respectively.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Every 50 vyre corpses cremated gives you +10 damage with all Sunspear variants sunspear, capping out at 500 vyre corpses cremated (+100 damage).

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Cremating 500 vyre corpses is a requirement for the master quest cape masterquestcape and the trimmed completionist cape comptrim

Location and How to Get there

⬥ Darkmeyer can be accessed via drakansmedallion, option 4.

⬥ Position yourself on the tile shown below.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Stand north of the tree, and walk two tiles east.

Note: if using Melee melee your character will move, but you will end up back on this tile.

Method: Flagpole Location

Before starting your session, make sure to fix the spawns on the world you're using, and set up the flagpole lure if using melee or range, this will increase your kph but doesn't work with magic. Refer to this video to learn how to fix spawns and set up the flagpole lure.

⬥ Pray the Leech Strength curse for the combat style you're using, and Soul Split soulsplit

⬥ Activating Wen book scriptureofwen adds 2-3% kph.

⬥ Upkeep elderovl (optional), and weppoison

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• If using penanceaura or the tier 2 prayer auras you need superprayerrenewal

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• When using the melee melee method, overloads do not add kph.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Do not use aggressionpotion ‎ ‎or aggrovl as it disrupts lures.

Note: on server reset Vanescula Drakan will block the path for vyres trying to walk to you. This is fixed by talking to Vanescula and then walking under her.
