Blood Barrage is an Ancient Magicks spell requiring a Magic level of 92. It is capable of hitting up to 29 damage (33 if you are wielding a Staff of the dead or 36 if wearing both Staff of the dead and Occult necklace). As with all Burst and Barrage spells, this spell hits in a 3x3 square area up to 9 targets.
Blood Barrage will recover the caster's Hitpoints by 25% of the damage inflicted. Thus, the maximum amount of Hitpoints that can be healed is 8 (from one target), or 74 Hitpoints (against 9 monsters); more if you are wielding a Castlewars bracelet during a Castle Wars game.
This spell is sometimes used alongside various other Barrage spells, such as Ice Barrage, in multi-combat PvP activities. This method is normally used by players with high Magic, Defence, and Hitpoints levels, along with a large amount of coins (due to the expense of using Ancient Magicks). Players may save coins by using a Staff of the dead, however, you cannot autocast Ancient magick spells with the Staff of the dead.
- In terms of rune costs, Blood Barrage is the second most expensive Combat spell as well as the third most expensive spell in the entire game.
