Vampyre Juvinates inhabit the woods east of Burgh de Rott, outside Ver Sinhaza in Meiyerditch, and are also fought during In Aid of the Myreque and Temple Trekking. They can only be harmed by silver weapons or efaritay's aid, and can be defeated by using the special attack of the Rod of ivandis or Ivandis flail and a dose of Guthix balance potion when it is below half health. This can result in the juvinate dying, reverting to human, or turning into an even more powerful feral vampyre (which are vulnerable to weapons other than silver). If the juvinate reverts into a human, they will thank you and give you a reward.
Alternatively, if you don't have an Ivandis flail, you can lower the health of a juvinate enough for it to flee. This way, you will not have to use a charge on your Rod of Ivandis. When a juvinate reaches about 1/3 health, they will disappear and turn into a cloud of mist and say "Ha, ha, ha, time to disappear and re-juvinate!"
A good strategy in Temple Trekking is to attack them with a ranged or magic attack immediately when they appear so they don't have a chance of attacking your follower. If there are too many for you to attack, try moving to maneuver them into an obstacle to ensure that it will not attack your follower. You must attack them before they attack your follower, otherwise the only way to stop it is by killing it. This can take some time due to how weak silver weapons are. Your follower may run out of food if you take too long to kill it.
Another good strategy to use is to fight them with Silver bolts. Depending on your ranged level, this may actually be a much faster way to kill juvinates than using a Rod of Ivandis. It is also very easy to safespot them with the large amount of plants and water in the area.
Returning a Juvinate to Human
When successfully returning a Juvinate to human, Benjamin, Liam, Miala or Verak will hand the player a noted reward. If the Juvinate was returned to a human in Meiyerditch, a Former Vampyre will appear instead.
