Old School RuneScape uses the British convention for floor numbering: Ground floor, first floor, etc.
For the monster spawned while fighting the Nechryarch, see Chaotic death spawn.

Death spawns may be summoned when players are fighting Nechryaels or their greater variant; when attacked, they may summon up to two death spawns to help attack the player. While having an extremely low max hit of 2, they are able to hit through protection prayers. Unlike their summoners, death spawns have no Slayer requirement in order to be harmed.

In the Slayer Tower, which is single-way combat, death spawns can attack the player even if they are under attack by other death spawns or a Nechryael. The player cannot attack the death spawn(s) until they kill the Nechryael they are in combat with.

Auto Retaliate does not trigger to attack them. Home teleports are also unaffected by the death spawns attacks. Despite this, they can still interrupt conversation with other NPCs or other dialogue screens, such as teleport options when operating a piece of equipment.

Players who use Guthan's equipment may prefer to heal on death spawns rather than Nechyraels due to their lower combat stats.

After being summoned by a Nechryael, the death spawn will despawn after 1 minute.

Death spawns are demons, so the special abilities of the silverlight, darklight and arclight affect them.
