Notable features Slayer Master, involved in While Guthix Sleeps, father of Kuradal.

Duradel is the second highest level Slayer Master (or Lapalok for players who have completed the quest While Guthix Sleeps), and the father of Kuradal. Players must have at least level 50 in the Slayer skill and 100 combat before they may receive Slayer assignments from him. Duradel is found upstairs from the fishing shop in Shilo Village. To have him assign you a task, players have to have completed the Shilo Village quest. During the cutscene of the battle between the heroes and Lucien in While Guthix Sleeps, it is revealed that Duradel has a combat level of 197.

Duradel used to be the toughest slayer master. However, on 8 December, 2009, a new slayer master was released. It was Duradel's daughter, Kuradal. She is a tougher slayer master, as she requires 75 slayer and 110 combat. The slayer Skillcape was moved from Duradel to Kuradal.

Once the player has completed the quest Smoking Kills, they are rewarded with 15 Slayer reward points for completing a task assigned by Duradel, assuming that they haven't switched tasks with Turael. This makes Duradel the second most rewarding in terms of reward points. He also gives 75 points for every 10th task, and 225 points for every 50th task completed.


In While Guthix Sleeps

NOTE: This section contains spoilers for those who have not completed While Guthix Sleeps. If you have not completed the quest, and do not want the quest to be spoiled, do not read this section.

He has a small role in the While Guthix Sleeps quest, belonging to a collection of eight warriors recruited to hunt Lucien. Lapalok replaces him in Shilo Village as the second highest-level Slayer master.

Upon questioning him in the White Knight's Castle as he prepares for his fight, he reveals he was being kept in Shilo Village by an unknown higher authority, and required special permission from them (he seemed to communicate telepathically with them) to leave for his part in the quest. Apparently, he took several shortcuts and 'trod on very important toes', as he puts it, to become the greatest Slayer master (which he was at the time, before being surpassed by his daughter, Kuradal). Unfortunately, he will not reveal any more information to the player, and states that he will take this secret to the grave to avoid tempting others. He does just that. The group attempt to save the player from Lucien in the Wilderness, and Duradel is one of the six who perish in the ensuing battle.

Also after this quest, a statue of Duradel is fittingly placed next to a statue of Turael at the entrance to the Slayer Tower near Canifis, and another statue can be found around the lake in Falador Park along with the other 5 heroes.

Achievement Diary

To complete the hard tasks of the Karamja Achievement Diary you have to ask Duradel for a slayer assignment.


  • It's possible his name is a reference to the sword Durendal.
  • When asked about Vannaka, Duradel said "My student Vannaka may be strong and well armed, but what use is that when by your first swing you've already been stabbed in the back by a lightning fast creature? Besides, rune claws are just the ones I wear for teaching, I've got a special set few have ever seen back at my house for when I really mean business. Vannaka knows this and wouldn't ever want to challenge me - again." . It is revealed that Vannaka was a student of Duradel's, and once challenged him to be the strongest slayer master only to be beaten by his master with a sort of rare and powerful weapon. This may also mean that he has a set of Dragon claws, despite not having used them during the battle in While Guthix Sleeps.[1]
  • On the day of the release of While Guthix Sleeps, some Slayer masters, including Duradel, had a glitch in their names in the chatbox. If a player was assigned a task and asked "Got any tips for me?", instead of Duradel or Lapalok the game showed slayer_master_5_multi. This glitch could not be seen if using an Enchanted gem, Slayer ring or the NPC Contact spell. It could only be seen if talking personally to Duradel or Lapalok.
  • Duradel is a member of the Legend guild.
  • If you use an enchanted gem and you are level 100+ and have 65-74 slayer and have no slayer task, you will talk to Duradel even with the exception of completing While Guthix Sleeps. Just activate the gem and ask "Got any tips for me?" They will say "I am not your approved Slayer Master; I'll pass you over to someone more suitable.
