Shadow Rush is the weakest of the shadow spells. This spell requires a Magic level of 52 to cast and can reduce your target's damage dealt by 5% for 10 seconds. It has a 100% chance to reduce your target's damage when cast as an auto-attack. If this spell is used with an ability, it only has a 10% chance to reduce damage, or a 20% chance if the caster has Dark Form active. It requires a death rune and three earth runes to cast. The base damage of this spell is 499, and it scales up to 604 at 63 Magic.

As with all Ancient Magicks spells, the quest Desert Treasure is required in order to cast this spell.
