Deflect Melee

Effect Provides protection from melee attacks.

Chance to rebound melee damage to the attacker.

Deflect Melee is a prayer which is similar to Protect from Melee, except it has a chance of deflecting some damage at its source. This is considered to be one of the most useful prayers in the game, along with Protect from Melee, as a great majority of the players and monsters in RuneScape use Melee. This prayer can be used as a high-level alternative to Protect from Melee, and provides a 60% damage reduction against other players in PvP scenarios, rather than the 40% offered by the standard protection prayer. In order to use this prayer you must have the Ancient Curses activated which requires completion of The Temple of Senntisten quest.

A player using the Deflect Melee curse.

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 their respective protection prayers, commonly known as "pray from melee, range and mage", but can deflect some of the damage they would have received back.

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

The damage reflected is dependent on how much damage the attack would have if not blocked:

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