Vannaka is a highly accomplished fighter who serves as as the combat trainer on Tutorial Island and a Slayer master in Edgeville Dungeon. He claims to be the greatest swordsman alive, which is suggested by his combat level of 146 and his ability to carry both a steel two-handed sword and dragon square shield at the same time; neither of these traits are attainable by players. According to the Postbag from the Hedge, his Strength level is 128.

During the tutorial, he dismisses the player character's attempts at making idle conversation, and proceeds to teach them how Melee and Ranged combat work. He tasks the player with slaying a giant rat in close combat. Afterwards, he instructs the player to kill a second rat from outside of the enclosure using ranged attacks; a strategy colloquially known as safespotting.

Vannaka gives the player a bronze sword, a wooden shield, a shortbow, and some bronze arrows to keep as part of his lessons on the island.

When encountered after the tutorial, Vannaka acts as a mid-level Slayer master. He is found due east of the wilderness entrance within the Edgeville Dungeon, and is marked by a slayer master icon on the minimap. Players with Combat level 40 or higher may receive slayer assignments from him.

Vannaka gives the following amounts of slayer points per task:

  • 4 points per task
  • 20 points per 10th task
  • 60 points per 50th task
  • 100 points per 100th task
  • 140 points per 250th task
  • 200 points per 1,000th task

TriviaEdit

  • He is one of three NPCs to be seen wielding a two-handed sword with just one hand, the other two being General Khazard and Kamfreena.
  • Vannaka is the only Slayer master to be consistently seen three times (Edgeville Dungeon, Tutorial Island, and Wilderness Resource Area).
  • The Genie met during a random event has the same face paint and beard as Vannaka, only in a different colour.
  • Although he is a swordsman, he also seems to have some Ranged combat expertise as he teaches the player to use distance to their advantage when ranging.
  • His combat level is no longer displayed when found outside of Tutorial Island.
  • When spoken to in Edgeville Dungeon, it is unclear whether Vannaka recognises the player from Tutorial Island.
