Nechryaels are demonic Slayer creatures, which require a Slayer level of 80 in order to harm. They are found only in the Slayer Tower (their stronger variant, Greater Nechryaels, can be found in the Catacombs of Kourend). Nechryaels are known for their rune boots drop, which are one of the few boots to provide a Strength bonus when worn. They are also known for their frequent drop rates of seeds and combat runes.

Commonly, Nechryaels summon death spawns to aid them, up to a limit of two each per Nechryael. Death spawns have semi-inaccurate attacks with a max hit of 2, and their attacks can hit through Protect from Melee. Auto-retaliate does not work on them, so you will have to click the death spawn to attack it. Death spawns will not be summoned if the Nechyrael is unable to attack the player back (such as when being safespotted).

Arclight can be very effective against Nechryael, as they are considered to be demonic creatures.

Players cannot use a Dwarf multicannon to kill Nechryaels anywhere.

There is also a stronger variant of the monster called the Greater Nechryael located in the Catacombs of Kourend. They will count towards your Slayer assignment if you have been given Nechryaels as a task.

  • The model of the nechryael has an inverted pentagram on its chest, this orientation is considered a symbol of evil and is assosiated with the triumph of matter over spirit.
  • The nechryael used to have similar drops to other monsters like jellies, gargoyles, and greater demons. Their drop table was revamped with the Superior slayer monsters update on 15 September 2016.
