Ahrim's book of magic detail

Ahrim's book of magic is a book wielded in the off-hand slot that requires level 70 magic to be wielded.

Currently, the book is the fifth best off-hand magic weapon, behind the Seismic singularity, Seasinger makigaiVirtus book, and Abyssal orb.

A player is able to cast spells twice as fast with a wand as with a staff, which is two-handed.

This item can be rarely obtained by looting the chest in the Barrows minigame.

  • Ahrim's book of magic and Karil's off-hand pistol crossbow are the only pieces of Barrows equipment that are worn in the offhand (shield) slot.
  • A Dual-wielding update for Magic made players able to cast two spells at a time, with the damage output being similar to dual-wielding melee weapons. This made the wands and books have the amount of accuracy a weapon of their level has, meaning Ahrim's book of magic now has 1486 rather than 374 accuracy and vice versa with the wand.
  • Ahrim's book of magic was unusual in that, for a while, it was more expensive than its mainhand counterpart. This may be explained by the Wand of Treachery providing the same bonuses as Ahrim's Wand, for a smaller price, but having no off-hand counterpart itself.
