Deflect Curses: Misc

Deflect Curses are prayers from the Ancient Curses prayer book. They are popularly used due to their slower drain rate than their respective protection prayers, commonly known as "pray from melee, range and mage".

Players need to have completed The Temple at Senntisten to access these prayers. Once players have completed the quest, they can switch to the Ancient Curses prayer book by praying at the Altar of Zaros in the Zarosian temple beneath the Digsite. Deflect curses stop 100% of damage caused by NPCs and 40% of damage caused by other players (in PvP). In addition, they also have a chance of deflecting some of the damage they would have caused back onto the attacker. As with 'Protect from' prayers, players can only deflect one style of combat at a time (Magic, melee or Ranged). Creatures that can only be damaged in a specific way (for example, the vyrewatch can only be damaged by the Ivandis flail) cannot be hurt using a deflect curse.

While activated, the Curses have a deflect rate of approximately 60%. This means that on slightly more than half of the hits, the player will wave their arm in a blocking gesture, accompanied by a light (Red-Melee, Blue-Magic, Green-Ranged), showing that the deflect occurred. When this happens, 10% of the BLOCKED damage will be deflected back, and if it would have hit a 0 or under 10, there will be no recoil.
