Karil the Tainted is the fourth oldest of the Barrows brothers and attacks solely with ranged.

Despite being seen as one of the weaker brothers Karil is certainly not to be underestimated as he hits rapidly and is extremely accurate, leaving even high levelled players with few Hitpoints.

Karil's Taint lowers the player's Agility, which can become a pain during the Barrows minigame as you try to reach the chest as fast as possible. This effect will even take place if his target has Protect from Missiles activated. Players can avoid this effect by maximising their ranged defence; this is because his set effect will only take place if his attack would have hit if the player was not using Protect from Missiles. If the player's Agility is left significantly drained after a fight with him, a super restore potion can be used to restore the lost levels quickly.

Most players prefer using Melee on Karil, but Magic spells are surprisingly effective even though he wears leather clothing, which is supposed to be magic resistant. This is due to the fact that he has a low magic level, which significantly impacts magic defence.
