|Release date||3 December 2009 (Update)|
|Drain rate||150 points per minute (1 point per 0.4 seconds)|
|Effect||Protects against damage from attacks and can deflect some damage back onto the attacker.|
Deflect Magic protects against damage from magic attacks and can deflect some of the damage back onto the attacker. This is potentially an extremely potent curse against users of ancient magicks. This curse can reduce the time of binds from Binding spells and Ice spells and the time from Teleport Block by half. This curse has no effect against Vengeance.
The deflection curses are another reason for players to switch from the normal prayer set to the curses, as they have the same drain rate as the protection prayers from the regular book and can deal additional damage back.
Deflect curses will grant you 50% damage reduction against most attacks from players and monsters. Deflect curses have a chance to reflect damage back at your attacker, and the damage reflected is 10% of the damage the attack would have done if not blocked by the deflect curse.
- According to the ancient hymnal, Deflect Magic's verbal incantation is "Arceto impetum magorum."[sic] (I hinder the attack of magical things.)
