Script error

Helwyr Cywir is the general of Seren's army in the Heart of Gielinor. Helwyr is a skilled hunter and sorcerer of the Cywir Clan, which hails from Tarddiad. While on Tarddiad, Helwyr slew a great monster, known as the Hunllef, a predator of great threat to the Tarddian elves. Upon the beast's death, he used elven magic to draw upon the energy of the creature, bending it to his own will, allowing him to take on the very form of the beast for himself.Script error{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|Template|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|preload|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded}}

At some point early in the Fourth Age, some of his elves travelled far away from Isafdar to test the limits of their link with their goddess.

Unfortunately, they were captured and cruelly dissected by a man named Gregorovic, who desperately sought a cure for his fatal illness and hoped to find it in the physiology of the long-lived elves. Helwyr was furious when he learned of the news from the only survivor, and desired revenge. Between the Fourth and Sixth Ages, Helwyr and his elves traveled around Gielinor in search of Gregorovic.

Centuries later, when The Heart – a powerful source of anima – was discovered, Helwyr traveled there under Seren's banner to secure it and to use its power to cure the Crystal Shapeshifters' affliction. He arrived only to stand face to face with Gregorovic, now undead and fighting for the cause of Sliske, and the three other generals: the Twin Furies, Avaryss the Unceasing and Nymora the Vengeful of Zamorak, and Vindicta of Zaros, daughter of Morvannon and last of the Ilujanka on Gielinor.

Although his grudge was held only against Gregorovic, Helwyr condemned the Twin Furies and Vindicta as "creatures of darkness", vowing to hunt them down in order to protect his people. After hostilities erupted between the four factions, Helwyr called upon the elves of Seren to claim the Heart in her name and save his clan.

Level 80 Magic is required to face him but this can be boosted.

Strategy

Drops

At 0% reputation each kill is worth Script error/512+Script error/512+Script error/512+Script error/128 in uniques alone, if the player has 100% reputation this number increases to Script error/256+Script error/256+Script error/256+Script error/64.

Helwyr's standard drops are increased above base thresholds in Challenge mode, similar to the other Heart bosses (for example; it's possible to get an 18 Rune ore drop in a Challenge mode kill, slightly more than the maximum of 15 in normal mode). Drop rates for unique items are also significantly increased in Challenge mode (as of 18 April 2016) although it's unknown if this stacks with reputation rewards.

Trivia

  • Upon release, there was a bug where Helwyr would drop loot in an unreachable tile, which was usually lost if the player could not use area loot or Telekinetic Grab. This only occurred if he was on the edges of the arena. This has since been fixed with the update on 23 October 2017.
  • Helwyr's Hunllef form is intended to be a fusion of a stag, a wolf, and a bear.Script error{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|Template|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|preload|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded}}

  • Helwyr is Welsh for hunters.
  • Helwyr's codename during development was "bear" and "manbearpig" which is a reference to the show South Park.Script error{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|Template|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|preload|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded}}

  • After killing Helwyr, the Adventurer's Log will say: "I killed the shapeshifting elven hunter, Helwyr." Killing more than one Helwyr results in the Adventurer's Log saying: "I killed # Helwyrs, limb tearing hunters."
  • For a while after release, after 2-3 kills in an instance (without re-entering), Helwyr would not summon anymore Cywir Alphas while the instance was still running. This was fixed and Helwyr will stop summoning them when there are four of them in the instance.
  • His elf form resembles Lord Amlodd.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this boss was 60,000 kills for normal mode and 1,617 for hard mode. At this time, this was the record for the most-killed boss in the Heart of Gielinor, equal with VindictaScript error{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|Template|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded|preload|{{Expansion depth limit exceeded}}
