Verac the Defiled is the youngest of the six Barrows brothers. Verac's crypt is located to the north-west of the Barrows area.

Verac's set effect: Verac's Defilement - Allows Verac's hits to have a chance to hit through protection prayer, also ignoring Defence in a similar fashion to a player wearing a full set of Verac's equipment. Protect from Melee is still advised when attacking Verac to lower the amount of times he will hit. This set effect makes Verac very dangerous and food is likely needed to kill him.

Verac is arguably the toughest brother. Although his max hit is significantly lower than that of Dharok's (who is considered by many to be the most dangerous brother), he is the only brother who can not be dealt with by just praying.


Verac's weakness is Magic; therefore, it is recommended to use spells such as Bolt spells or Magic Dart against him, with the latter being conveniently accurate and cost-effective, since looting the chests gives you death and mind runes. Having Ranged or Melee armour is recommended when fighting him, as his Magic Defence is so low that you can hit well even with Melee armour. Having armour with a good Prayer bonus might be useful. Having a high crush Defence won't help, as Verac's special also ignores armour. However, as the special does not occur with every hit, it is still recommended to wear armour with high Defence if you are not praying.

Players can also use Entangle, Ice Blitz or Ice Barrage on Verac if they can use it; the spells will bind him for 15 and 20 seconds respectively, allowing players to stay away from Verac and save food in the process.
