The Lord of Vampyrium | Master Quest
 
Get ready for September's bloodiest update – The Lord of Vampyrium is here.
 
This Master-level quest is the sixth in the Myreque series. Can you help the brave band of freedom fighters take down the tyrannical Lord Drakan?
 
Read on to find out more!
 
How to Start Speak to Vanescula near Burgh de Rott
Requirements:

  • You must be a RuneScape member
  • Branches of Darkmeyer
  • 79 Construction
  • 78 Slayer
  • 76 Hunter
  • 75 Attack
  • 75 Constitution
  • 75 Defence
  • 75 Strength
  • Recommended 110+ Combat Level
  • Drakan Medallion
  • Darkmeyer Outfit
  • Blisterwood weaponry

In an act unseen in living memory, Lord Drakan has appeared in public – an opportunity that the Myreque can't pass up.
 
This is their chance to take down the biggest of bads, and they need your help. Infiltrate Darkmeyer once again, and bring a blisterwood-tipped end to Drakan's reign of terror...if you can.
 
This is as dark and intense as RuneScape questing gets, and we hope you have a fang-tastic time.
There's a full-blooded helping of rewards, too, including new blisterwood weapons and a cosmetic wing override.
 
If you haven't already, check out the latest Lores & Histories story – The Old Blood– to uncover some of Drakan's early history and get in the mood for the quest itself. You can also try the Vampyre's Riddle – a web-based mystery with some cool prizes up for grabs if you complete it by 14th September.
 
Have fun!

A whole slew of quest bugs to find, but can't even get past the first one. :P
Back after a 5 year TIF hiatus. Please don't mind me too much.

Don't worry, they now rebalanced like 1% of the quest monsters needing rebalancing ;) Though still, better late then never.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

For bonus fun, during the beta Elvarg was literally made of murder, capable of outright ignoring the fact that you had a dragonfire shield. Honestly though, isn't that damage pretty close to the limits of F2P healing? Especially at lower levels when the quest unlocks your T50 chest gear and you're doing like 1/5 of the target audience's health :v

And now Ruler of the Tower seems somehow even more obnoxious to get! I didn't think it was possible~

Pretty glad I got 7500 dreadnips months ago now  :D. Never wanna see that tower again.

Nice to see the MTX advantage fixed, hopefully this means the aforementioned issues with raids are fixed fairly soon (inb4 takes just as much time as the former).

Inefficiency = fun. That's objective and can't be debated. Ever.

Well, a lot more people died than I thought.

I assume you'd get the bonuses by virtue of having it as your mainhand weapon, you can use a drygore offhand for maximum effectiveness after that.
 

And now Ruler of the Tower seems somehow even more obnoxious to get! I didn't think it was possible~

I think it's been discontinued, actually.

Anyone found any post quest stuff to do?

Castle Drakan will be yours to explore freely after the quest, and it will unlock combat and skill updates, as well as give you more opportunities to act like a vampyre.

I just don't get why pets that at some point cost upwards of what 9/10 bonds (drake?) or in real terms $55 is now pretty much no better than having a normal yak.  If they didn't have the no death I wouldn't have bought one in the first place.

One of the best done quests in a long time. Probably top 10 for me. Certainly the first in a long time that didn't leave me wanting at the end. (Except for the finale.)
