Rush of Blood is a weekly Slayer-themed combat Distraction and Diversion that can be played in Prifddinas, requiring at least level 85 Slayer and completion of Plague's End. It is run by Morvran Iorwerth, slayer master and former warband leader, and takes place in his dungeon underneath the Iorwerth Clan district. In the D&D, waves of different monsters, drawn from Morvran's assignment list, must be fought and one is given ten minutes to do so.

The activity can be played once a week for rewards, and any number of times for practice. There is a reward chest behind a locked gate. The gate will not open until ten minutes have passed, and will contain a small amount of drops from the monsters defeated, plus a reward book when on a reward run, based on how far the player went.

The timer does not begin until the player passes the barrier. A bank chest is available just outside of the arena, and can be accessed at any time. Doing so will not pause the timer. This means that use of the chest should be judged wisely.

There are four tiers of combat available, starting at 85 Slayer and increasing by 5 levels for each tier. Monsters killed during reward runs will give Slayer experience, and have a chance of dropping golden rocks for Slayer and the combat skills.

The Rush of Blood is part of the Iorwerth Clan. Morvran, the Slayer Master, watches over the player throughout the fight and can be seen sitting with what appears to be two hellhounds as pets or guardians.

Suggested setupEdit

Morvran (seated)

Other specific equipment will be needed depending on what mode is selected - see their relevant section below.

Hybrid armour is recommended instead of multiple sets of armour, as changing gear for each wave will take precious time.

Legacy Mode is not recommended as the damage output is too low compared to using abilities.

Familiars such as the steel titan will help clear waves faster. Dreadnips and steel titans cause tormented demons to swap between all 3 combat style protection prayers, allowing players to finish them at a much quicker rate.

Multiple factors, such as monster spawns, combat levels, equipment and connection issues come into play regarding finishing at least 20 waves. It may take several attempts before achieving a desired title.

Players should always use damage-boosting abilities as often as they can, such as Sunshine or Death's Swiftness whenever possible combined with an adrenaline flask to clear waves with potentially annoying monsters, such as airut and Kal'gerion demons.

It should be noted that players must clear wave 20 to receive the title; clearing wave 19 and reaching wave 20 will not grant the title.

Note: Titles can be gained by clearing wave 20 during a practice round.

MonstersEdit

Monsters that are normally aggressive outside of this D&D will be aggressive here as well. Monsters for each wave are selected randomly from a set of possibilities listed below.

Some of the challenges will require some quests in order to access, due to the monsters faced in those waves.

BoostsEdit

RewardsEdit

Players are able to access the reward chest after every play, whether it is a reward or practice run. The chest contains various items from the monsters that you've faced during the session. It should be noted that not all drops will make it into the chest, compared to fighting them in their standard locations.

Specific items, such as bones and ashes, never appear in the chest. 

In reward mode, Morvran will give the player a reward book at the end. If the player's inventory is full, the reward book will appear inside the reward chest.

The following titles can be unlocked by completing 20 waves at the particular difficulty level:

Title Difficulty level
The Abyssal [Name] Bronze
The Dark [Name] Silver
The Beast [Name] Gold
Slayer Master [Name] Platinum

When unlocking the 'Slayer Master' title at Platinum difficulty, any lower tier titles that has not yet been acquired will also be unlocked.

Unlocking the 'Slayer Master' title is a requirement for the completionist cape. The titles can be unlocked on either a reward or trial run.

On reward mode, Most Wanted cards (in Abyssal demons, Automatons, Glacors, and Tormented demons), Slayer VIP tickets and Ushabti are offered in the chest. The amount of tickets obtained are on a ratio of 1:1, with 1 ticket obtained for each difficulty taken. This means if a player does platinum difficulty, they will get four tickets.

The drop rate of a most wanted card is #/20, with the # being the amount of waves completed when the game ended. The player can only possess one Most Wanted card of that type at a time. If they have all of the cards in the bank, they will not receive any more until those cards are used/destroyed.

The first time you complete 20 waves in a run of Rush of Blood on any difficulty, Morvran will reward you with a 50,000 Slayer XP lamp once you speak with him. Claiming this lamp is also required for the completionist cape and the master quest cape.

TriviaEdit

  • At one point, Anagogic orts collected through Rush of Blood would not count towards your daily anagogic ort limit. This has been fixed.
  • There was a bug where Muspahs and Tormented demons would not count towards a player's slayer task. This has since been fixed.
  • You can also receive special rewards from the chest even on a trial run including unique drops, for example, Glacor boots and Automaton gloves.
  • Brawler gloves appear on the ground in the arena, rather than in the chest.
  • If the player dies while playing Rush of Blood, or otherwise scores a low number of waves, Morvran will say: "What a waste of time. I should know better than to take time out of my day just to watch such an abysmal performance. Not impressed."
  • If the player fights a Metal Dragon during the Rush while working on the Odd Old Man's wishlist, it is possible to get more than one tail bone of the same type.
