Hurricane is an ability found in the Ability Book. It is a Threshold Attack ability which requires level 55 Attack to use and only works with two-handed melee weapons.

It has a cooldown time of 20 seconds. When activated the player spins on the spot, dealing up 66-219% ability damage to all adjacent targets, as well as opponents standing on the player's square. The main target is hit a second time for up to 84-161% ability damage. Hurricane's cooldown is shared with Destroy.

Most two-handed melee weapons will deal damage in a 3x3 area with this ability. Halberds and similar weapons (including the noxious scythe and dragon rider lance) will deal damage in a 5x5 area.

This ability is fairly similar to Quake, however:

  • Hurricane will deal more damage due to its higher minimum damage and second hit.
  • Hurricane does not reduce defence nor raise affinity values.


  • Although the ability's name is "Hurricane", the symbol is of a tornado.
  • Hurricane used to deal 400% weapon damage, but due to a change in the beta which significantly increased damage of all weapons, this was reduced to 188% damage. With the release of Legacy Mode, Hurricane's damage was raised to a maximum of 219%. The update on 13 July 2015 added a second hit to Hurricane that deals 84-161% weapon damage to the main target.
