Pyrefiends are Slayer monsters that require level 30 Slayer to kill. As their attacks are magic based, it is recommended to wear armour with a high magic defence bonus, such as dragonhide. Pyrefiends and Harpie bug swarms are the only monsters to drop steel boots.

Strength and Weakness

Pyrefiendsafespot

You can safespot multiple Pyrefiends by standing in this spot in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon.

The Pyrefiend's attack accuracy is based on your magic defence, so it is highly recommended that you wear dragonhides or other ranged armour to mitigate damage. Due to their low magic defence, they are highly susceptible to Magic attacks.

Players who intend to use melee and have 43 Prayer can flick the Protect from Melee prayer to avoid being damaged. An alternative method would be to use a safespot with a halberd or using Ranged attacks. Players should be aware that although their max hit is relatively low for their combat level, they can hit very consistently.
