|The pun was intended.|
The Evil spirit is the boss in Rum Deal. It only attacks with Melee, so turning on Protect from Melee is sufficient in protecting a player from most damage. High-levelled players should not worry about this battle, as the spirit is rather weak and has few hitpoints for its level.
A two-handed weapon can kill him relatively quickly. Poison is not necessary, as the spirit is immune to its effects. If a player is above level 40 and uses Protect from Melee, there is little need for food. He can only be fought once.
- The 'pun intended' comment on his examine text is a reference to a spirit, which is a type of alcohol and Braindeath rum, which is an evil alcohol.
- Although the Evil spirit is a quest boss, it does not appear in the Nightmare Zone.
