|Prayer book||Ancient Curses|
|Drain rate||200 points per minute (1 point per 0.3 seconds)|
|Effect||Boosts by 5%, increasing to 10% over time, draining enemy's by 10%, increasing to 25% over time.|
Leech Strength, one of the Ancient Curses, boosts Strength by 5%, increasing to 10% over time. Drains enemy Strength by 10%, increasing to 25% over time. This prayer may be useful in combat situations.
In PvP this may be lethal to Strength Pures, since they will have their combat stat lowered and will hit less and with bad accuracy since they usually keep their Attack level low.
Leech curses drain one opponent. Following each kill, the leech % resets, and %'s does not carry across opponents. You can drain 10%, rising to 25% of an opponent, and upon fighting a new opponent, this drain restarts at only 10%, to re-rise in time to 25% again. Player boosts of 5%, rising to 10%, do carry across, however, providing that the player is supplied with more drains to sustain the 5%+.
- According to the ancient hymnal, Leech Strength's verbal incantation is "Reple me fortitudo hostium." (Fill me with the strength of my enemy.)
