Sacrifice is a basic ability, one of three abilities released with the second world event, The Bird and the Beast. It requires level 10 Constitution to use.

When Sacrifice is used, the player deals 20-100% 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.

It was first obtainable by participating in the second world event, at a cost of 21,000 renown and a gold event token. With the death of Bandos and end of the event, it can now be obtained as a rare drop from General Graardor and Kree'arra[1]. It is also obtainable from their bodyguards.

It is highly recommend to have Lootshare enabled in order to obtain these abilities, as it seems to be extremely common to obtain than not having it enabled.

These abilities are individual drops, however it is possible to receive multiple abilities in a single kill. When received as a drop 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.

It can also be bought for 3,500 Reward Currency from the Anima Islands Distraction & Diversion, available following the fall of Tuska at the Tuska Comes world event. During the world event, the ability was also purchasable with Reward Currency from the respective representative of one's chosen faction.

If the Swift gloves' extra shot passive effect activates while using Sacrifice, both hits will heal the player.

TacticsEdit

  • While training combat, it may be helpful to save Sacrifice until you are nearly certain that it will kill your target. However, mistiming Sacrifice may result in less-than-expected healing.
  • Berserk and similar effects can increase the damage of Sacrifice. In general, when Sacrifice's damage is increased, its healing is increased as well.

TriviaEdit

  • 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.
  • During the third world event, Tuska Comes, this ability was available for 3,500 Reward Currency.
  • In PvP Sacrifice will always heal you for 25% of the damage dealt, and when the target dies it will heal you for 100% of the damage dealt on top of that. Essentially healing you 125% of the damage dealt in total. It is unknown if this is a bug or not.
  • In some cases, Sacrifice does not need to kill the target in order to provide increased healing. If Sacrifice is used to bring Yakamaru's health to 0 at a pool (even if this isn't the final pool), or if Sacrifice is used to bring Araxxor's health to 0 (even if the Araxyte spiders immediately heal him for 5,000 health), Sacrifice will still heal for 100% of damage dealt.
