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

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 nechryaels. Using Protect from Melee is recommended, as the greater Nechryael is more accurate and deals even more damage. Arclight can be very effective against Nechryael, as these are considered to be demonic creatures.

Unlike the Mutated Bloodvelds who have a unique superior variant of their own, Greater Nechryael do not. They simply get the normal Nechryarch instead.


Much like Dust devils, Greater Nechryaels 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 nechryaels with a fast ranged weapon (such as darts or toxic blowpipe) 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 nechryaels 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 Chaos runes to cast Blood Burst 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 nechrayaels are properly stacked, making it much more effective than bringing food.
