Notable features Slayer Master in Edgeville Dungeon

Vannaka (formerly called the combat instructor on Tutorial Island) is a medium-level Slayer master in RuneScape. Vannaka is also one of the NPCs associated with the Varrock diary. His mastery in swordsmanship and combat is shown by his high combat level of 146, strength level of 112, and the fact that he wields both a steel two-handed sword and dragon square shield at the same time. According to Duradel, another Slayer Master, Vannaka was once a student of his, and does not wish to challenge him due to his master's great skill with his rune claws.

Vannaka can be found in Edgeville Dungeon just east of the wilderness entrance at the slayer master icon File:Slayer master icon.png. He gives Slayer assignments to members level 40 or higher. He gives 4 points for each task, 20 points for every 10th task, and 60 points for every 50th task completed. He is also the only other slayer master besides Turael that has no quest/skill requirements.

After completion of the Varrock achievement diary, he can change players' Varrock Teleport location between Varrock Square and the main Grand Exchange entrance. However, he can only do this in person and not via the NPC Contact spell.

NOTE: Slayer masters assign higher-levelled monsters more frequently if the player's combat level is high.

Trivia

  • While Vannaka has a high combat level for a human, he is weaker than his fellow humans Turael, Duradel, Ghommal, Sloane, Harrallak, and Cyrisus, who all have a combat level of 197. He is also weaker than Damis who is level 174.
  • His Strength level (112) was revealed in Postbag from the Hedge 14.
  • Postbag from the Hedge 20 revealed that Vannaka was Duradel's student and had lost while attempting to challenge his master.
  • In issue 27 of the God Letters, it is revealed that at one point, before he went into exile on tutorial island, Vannaka was a follower of Saradomin. Saradomin states "It is somewhat of a pity that his glory days are behind him, and his self-imposed exile to tutorial island is in place, for I would deeply desire to see him overcome his shame for his past actions, and take up his place at the vanguard of my holy warriors once again." It could be that the 'shame' Saradomin speaks of was Vannaka's defeat at the hands of Duradel, though what made Vannaka leave Saradomin's service and tutor under Duradel in the first place is still unknown. Vannaka was clearly in the army of Saradomin at one point, because Saradomin states he wishes him (Vannaka) to take up his (Vannaka's) place with his (Saradomin's) holy warriors once more.
  • His body and facial markings are very similar to those of Hazeel, which in the past was taken as a hint he might be a Mahjarrat. However, they are also identical to the facial markings of his former tutor, Duradel.
  • He seems similar to Viggora, who also claims to be the "greatest swordsman alive". However, Viggora has been a ghost for a long time, and they are out of touch with current times, Vannaka may have succeeded him.
  • Vannaka's combat level is 146. This is revealed in Tutorial Island.
  • Vannaka is one of the few slayer masters not involved in While Guthix Sleeps
  • Vannaka is most well known because of his ability to wield a steel 2h sword, and a dragon sq shield at the same time. This issue was addressed by a player to Saradomin, who replied, "The fearsome Vannaka is one of the strongest warriors to ever grace this world, and as such he has the power to wield what would normally be considered to be a two handed sword single-handedly. This is a strength that most mortals do not posess, and it adds to his fearsome reputation as a great swordsman. It is somewhat of a pity that his glory days are behind him, and his self-imposed exile to tutorial island is in place, for I would deeply desire to see him overcome his shame for his past actions, and take up his place at the vanguard of my holy warriors once again. Perhaps the best we may see of him is his current role as Slayer Master and Combat Instructor, although I suspect his thirst for adventure may bring him back for one last battle, so that he may end his days in glory..." This indicates that Vannaka is a follower of the God of Order. Saradomin also responds, to the player's query of the kind of shield Vannaka wields, "The shield Vannaka wields is the mighty Square Shield of the Dragon, an ancient and powerful artifact possessed only by a few members of this world lucky enough to have found one. He has earnt the right to wield it many times over, and it is something of a trophy for him of past glories."
  • According to Duradel, "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." This could mean that Duradel has a set of Dragon Claws, but that isn't likely, since those were discovered after he died. [1]
  • Vannaka is most likely a member of Legend's Guild, because he can wield Dragon Square Shield, which requires the completion of Legend's Quest to wield(the completion of Quest also grants you access to Legend's Guild).
