Effect Deflects damage caused by Magic.

Deflect magic protects against damage from magic attacks and can deflect some of the damage back onto the attacker. This is potentially an extremely potent curse against users of ancient magicks. It is unknown if this curse also deflects any side-effects to a spell. This curse has no effect against Vengeance.

The deflection curses are a primary reason for players to switch from the normal prayer set to the curses, as they have the same drain rate as the protection prayers from the regular book and can deal additional damage back.

Note that as with all Deflect prayers, the Ferocious Ring does not add damage you reflect back onto the enemy.

Deflect prayers will grant you full protection against NPC attacks and 60% from player attacks.

A player using the Deflect Magic curse.

The Damage reflected seems to be dependent on how much the attack would have done prior to be being blocked by the prayer:

(or about 10% of the damage taken)

Damage Recoil
10-19 1
20-29 2
30-39 3
40-49 4
50-59 5
60-69 6


  • This prayer is favored by higher levels in any situation, including Bounty Hunter and PvP Worlds because of the rebound it can inflict on the opponent while draining prayer points at the same rate.  
  • This prayer requires 28 more prayer levels than its counterpart on the regular prayerbook.
  • This Curse (along with Deflect Missiles) has been used to kill TzTok-Jad with no weapons.
