Leech Ranged, one of the Ancient Curses, has two effects:
- Boosts Ranged when calculating hit chance by 2 levels, increasing to 5 over time.
- Drains enemy Ranged when calculating hit chance by 4 levels, increasing to 8 over time.
In PvP, this prayer can be useful against Ranged Pures, as they will have lowered stats. In PvM, this can be useful against accurate hitting Ranged monsters; a notable one is General Graardor, who uses an extremely accurate ranged attack.
Leech curses drain one opponent. Following each kill, the leech % resets, and %'s does not carry across opponents. You can maximise an enemy's drain, but upon fighting a new opponent the drain will restart, eventually rising to maximum again. Player boosts do carry across, however, providing that the player is supplied with more drains to sustain the leech.
- According to the ancient hymnal, Leech Ranged's verbal incantation is "Reple me vis enimus hostium." (Fill me with the ranged skills of my enemy.)
