- This is about the ice demons that appear in the Ritual of the Mahjarrat quest. See Ice demon for the one that appears in The Temple at Senntisten quest.
Ice demons are monsters summoned by Lucien during Ritual of the Mahjarrat. Lucien summons twenty of these monsters at once, but only two need to be defeated to progress in the quest.
The ice demons attack using both Magic and Ranged. The magic attack seems to be used most often and seems to be more accurate than the ranged attack, so players are advised to use Protect from Magic or Deflect Magic.
The demons also cast 'icicle' attacks that cause no damage in themselves but partially block the player's movement. Two icicle attacks on the same position will completely block the the player's movement. This is dangerous, as during the battle the player must constantly be dodging Lucien's magic attacks, which otherwise will cause heavy damage. It is recommended that the player move away from the icicles each time they are cast. If the player does become trapped by icicles, attacking the icicles can break them and open a clear path. However, it appears that most if not all ranged weapons take too long to break open a path, so a melee weapon (and, likely, using crush) or magic seems best.
Ice demons have quite high defences, so the player may need Prayer potions if the battle is prolonged.
Crush weapons such as the Barrelchest anchor, Chaotic maul, and Granite maul are effective against these demons. The crush attacks of Godswords can also be used. The Bandos godsword's special attack can be used to lower a demon's defence. The Armadyl godsword's special attack can be used to inflict more damage. The Saradomin godsword's special attack can be used to heal the player. However, this may not be as useful as the Bandos and Armadyl godsword, as the player will likely take more damage than the Saradomin godsword can heal, thereby requiring other healing methods. The Zamorak godsword's special attack is not useful against ice demons, since they can continue to range and mage the player even when frozen in place by the godsword.
For rangers, Ruby bolts(e) can be very good choice, Ice demons have very high Constitution and you can easily hit 2000 and more with its special effect (3000 possible while it's at full health).
One strategy is to use a Zamorakian spear and a godsword. Use the godsword's special attack and then switch to the faster spear until another special attack can be made. Recover special potions can be brought to recover the special attack energy quicker.
Combat Summoning familiars are not effective against these ice demons. A Beast of Burden familiar can be useful, as it can carry extra food or healing potions. Healing familiars such as a Unicorn Stallion or Fire/Ice/Moss Titans could be useful for the fight, or if a lower level beast of burden runs out of extra supplies.
- These ice demons are more powerful than the ice demon that appeared in The Temple at Senntisten quest. All forms have the same appearance.
- Ice Demons are immune to deflect damage, making protect magic and deflect magic equal in strength against them.
