|A vengeful spirit corrupted by dark magic.|
Ahrim the Blighted is the oldest of the Barrows brothers using the Magic corner of the combat triangle. He wears robes, which make him vulnerable to Ranged as well as Melee attacks. Despite his defensive weaknesses, Ahrim can easily damage the player with his magical attacks, hitting up to 25 damage. Aside from this, Ahrim can also curse the player, lowering their Melee stats substantially. It is recommended that the player uses Protect from Magic when fighting him although note that it will not protect against his curses. Even if using the Protect from Magic prayer, his curse spells can still work, plus his set effect still activates because the attack still counts as a successful hit, so bringing a Stat restore potion is recommended.
