Sacrifice is a basic ability, one of three abilities released with the second world event, The Bird and the Beast. It was purchasable at the event with 21,000 renown and a gold event token, and requires level 10 Constitution to use. Now the event is over, it can be obtained as a very rare drop from General Graardor and Kree'arra. When received as a drop from the generals, it is automatically learned; it does not drop as an item. When received as a drop, the message You have unlocked the Sacrifice ability! appears in the chatbox.
When Sacrifice is used, the player deals up to 100% weapon damage to their target regardless of protection prayers, and is healed by 25% of the damage dealt, or 100% if the ability kills the target.
Sacrifice is a basic ability. Unlike other basic constitution abilities, it does generate adrenaline.
While training Combat, it may be helpful to time your hits so that you heal a good amount of HP from using this ability. Wait until your opponent is relatively close to dying, then use the ability. Do not use it too early or too late; otherwise only a negligible amount will be healed.
As of a recent update Sacrifice is now a possible drop from minions in the Armadyl and Bandos encampments.
- Sacrifice initially always did 100% of the weapon damage. This was changed on 17 December 2013. The ability now deals damage up to 100%.
- When released, the ability did not work with magic weapons. This was fixed on 17 December 2013. It can also be used without a weapon.
- When released, it initially did not generate any adrenaline.
- The ability only bypasses protection prayers from other players. It will not hit through the prayers of monsters such as Elite black knights.
