This article is about the spell. For the Fremennik Saga, see Vengeance (saga).
Vengeance is a Lunar spell that rebounds 75% of the damage of the next hit back to their opponent, similar to a ring of recoil or deflect curses. However, this effect will wear off upon log out. Some monsters are immune to it, however. The player will also say "Taste vengeance!" when it is activated. Players may only cast vengeance once every 30 seconds.
Prior to the Constitution update, Vengeance would not activate if the casting player was killed by the next blow to prevent both players dying at the same time. However, this is now not the case except in the Duel Arena where only one winner may be declared.
This spell is very popular when player killing, especially when an opponent is using hard hitting weapons such as a godsword or Dharok's because it is possible to rebound large amounts of damage back. Players sometimes take off their armour so their opponent will hit a higher hit on them and thus rebounding a higher hit on the enemy with vengeance. However, a way to counter vengeance is to simply strike the player with a lower-hitting weapon to minimise the full potential of this spell, but this method is quite impractical for dangerous PvP situations. As with all Lunar Magic spells, the quest Lunar Diplomacy must be completed to cast this spell.
This spell cannot be cast while in a POH.
Vengeance costs 848 coins for each cast, or 738 coins if an Earth staff is equipped.
