Blood Barrage requires a Magic level of 92 to cast and can heal the caster by 5% of the damage dealt on the main target and by 3% of the damage dealt on secondary targets.[1] It has a 100% chance to heal the caster when cast as an auto-attack. If this spell is used with an ability, it only has a 10% chance to heal, or a 20% chance if the caster has Dark Form active. It requires two blood runes and five fire runes to cast. The base damage of this spell is 883.

When cast as an auto-attack, this spell will strike a 3x3 square area surrounding the target, hitting other players and monsters in this space. Damage to secondary targets is slightly less.[2]

Blood Barrage is often used for training magic due to the area of effect damage combined with the healing effect.

As with all Ancient Magicks spells, the quest Desert Treasure must be completed to cast this spell.

  • It is not recommended to use Blood Barrage when fighting Commander Zilyana as it increases the damage she deals.
