'''Karil the Tainted''' is the fourth oldest of the seven [[Barrows]] brothers. He attacks using a repeating crossbow which uses special ammo called [[bolt racks]] which cannot be retrieved by a player using them. Although his crossbow is apparently set to the "accurate" style, Karil is still considered one of the more dangerous [[Barrows]]. He can hit up to 207 with incredible accuracy, and faster than the other brothers (same speed as any dagger or scimitar). His special isn't the most deadly as it only drains [[Agility]] by 20% of the level that you have which isn't too crippling, unless you are required to run long distances to a bank or are just about to enter the tunnels. His primary weakness is stab attacks.

'''Karil the Tainted''' is the fourth oldest of the six [[Barrows brothers]]. Karil's crypt is located in the lower south end of the [[Barrows]] area. He attacks with ranged using his [[Karil's crossbow|2-handed crossbow]] and [[bolt racks]].
  +
  +
Karil's set effect: ''Karil's Taint'', allows his hits to have a chance to reduce the player's [[magic]] level. When this effect is activated an animation and sound effect are triggered, and the player will suffer a loss of a magic level. This effect is not very damaging to a player if they are not using magic, particularly if [[Overload]]s are used. Regardless, his hits are rather accurate so [[protection prayers]]/[[Ancient curses|curses]] are advised. [[Soul split]] can also be used, but should only be utilised by experienced players.
   
Some players prefer to Melee Karil using the 4 [[dragon dagger]] special attacks (8 hits) then switching to a [[chaotic rapier]] or some other powerful [[dragon weapon]] while using [[Protect from Missiles]] Prayer. One could also try using a [[Bandos godsword]] while using attack and strength prayers to help lower Karil's defence.
+
During the Morytania-Misthalin wars, the Barrows brothers were devastating the Undead armies, cutting through their lines with ease. Karil was known for his secrecy and accuracy in battle; "Should any enemy manage to survive long enough, and have the chance to strike a blow, Karil would fire a swathe of bolts to pepper their chest as they took their swing, throwing them back, " this is a quote taken from [[The Fall of Six]] under the Lores section of Runescape.'' ''
   
Lower defence players (such as 1 defence pures) who don't use prayer against Karil have noticed he can hit multiple 200's at high speed and rate - which can be deadly if this occurs multiple times in a row and the player is not able to eat fast enough. So protect/deflect Missile is strongly recommended to prevent it; however his special attack can still drain your agility. If you have 80+ Defence and Defence range bonus of at least 300, then you can try it without prayer, but watch your life points if doing so.

He's weak to stab attacks, but is also rather weak to melee styles in general, therefore it is recommended to use a strong weapon such as a [[Zamorakian spear]], or [[Chaotic rapier]] or [[Drygore rapier]] in conjunction with their off-hand variants. However other weapons such as the [[Chaotic Maul]] can also take down Karil just as easily.

It is common for many players attempting to slay the Barrows brothers to kill him with magic as it saves having to bring another combat style, however if this is the case '''''caution''''' should be taken when fighting Karil as he will deal heavier damage to mages than to melee fighters.

Karil head

Karil the Tainted is the fourth oldest of the six Barrows brothers. Karil's crypt is located in the lower south end of the Barrows area. He attacks with ranged using his 2-handed crossbow and bolt racks.

Karil's set effect: Karil's Taint, allows his hits to have a chance to reduce the player's magic level. When this effect is activated an animation and sound effect are triggered, and the player will suffer a loss of a magic level. This effect is not very damaging to a player if they are not using magic, particularly if Overloads are used. Regardless, his hits are rather accurate so protection prayers/curses are advised. Soul split can also be used, but should only be utilised by experienced players.

During the Morytania-Misthalin wars, the Barrows brothers were devastating the Undead armies, cutting through their lines with ease. Karil was known for his secrecy and accuracy in battle; "Should any enemy manage to survive long enough, and have the chance to strike a blow, Karil would fire a swathe of bolts to pepper their chest as they took their swing, throwing them back, " this is a quote taken from The Fall of Six under the Lores section of Runescape. 

BarrowsEdit

Karil's crypt is located in the lower south end of the Barrows area. He's weak to stab attacks, but is also rather weak to melee styles in general, therefore it is recommended to use a strong weapon such as a Zamorakian spear, or Chaotic rapier or Drygore rapier in conjunction with their off-hand variants. However other weapons such as the Chaotic Maul can also take down Karil just as easily.

It is common for many players attempting to slay the Barrows brothers to kill him with magic as it saves having to bring another combat style, however if this is the case caution should be taken when fighting Karil as he will deal heavier damage to mages than to melee fighters.

Karil returns with his 5 brothers in Barrows - Rise of the Six, greatly enhanced by Sliske's experiments into the Shadow Realm. As when fought normally, he retains his set effect, and also has various other abilities.

Trivia Edit

  • Karil, along with all the other Barrows Brothers, received a graphical update on 4 January 2012 to make him look more like a player wearing his items rather than the old graphics style which displayed an unclear, purely pink coloured apparition. Along with this, his combat level was increased from 98 to 121. Due to the Evolution of Combat, his combat level has been raised to 150.
  • Although Karil uses range, he can do more damage to players with melee armour than Ahrim can, even though Ahrim uses battle magic. This is because Ahrim also uses his high-level curse spells on the player and occasionaly uses his Fire Wave, unlike Karil, who just has a basic ranged attack.
  • Despite being a ranger and using his own armour (which would have high magic defence), before the Evolution of Combat, he could be hit extremely often with magic attacks. This would suggest that he would have a low magic level, or may be an oversight from Jagex.
  • Before a hidden update that affected Karil's and Torag's sets, Karil drained Agility levels from the player.
  • Karil's crossbow seems to be based off the real life Chu-ke nu, an ancient Chinese crossbow that used a rapid fire system. If this is true, this could also explain why Ak-Haranu sells the required bolt racks, as he is from the Eastern Lands and the Eastern Lands seem to be based on the ancient/medieval Far East. This supports the idea that Sliske, who gave the Barrow Brothers their armour, obtained them from the Eastern Lands.
  • In "The Fall of Six", Karil is depicted as being the fastest of the brothers, though due to the Evolution of Combat update his crossbow is not as fast as other crossbows.
  • In the wallpaper, Karil, along with Guthan and Ahrim, hold their weapons in one hand although all Barrows weapons are two-handed.
  • In Rise of the Six, Karil uses his regular crossbow, however, he holds it in one hand when running. When attacking, he uses the same animation for a two-handed crossbow.
