Blood Barrage is the highest tier Blood spell from the Ancient Magicks spellbook, available at level 92 Magic. It is capable of hitting up to 29 damage (without any magic damage boosts) per cast.

As with all:

  • Blood spells, it has the capability of healing the caster's Hitpoints by 25% of the amount of damage inflicted. Players can increase the amount healed by equipping bloodbark armour; each piece will increase the amount healed by 1.5%, up to a maximum overall of 32.5%.
  • Burst and Barrage spells, this spell hits up to nine targets in a 3x3 grid around its primary target.
  • Ancient Magicks spells, the quest Desert Treasure must be completed to cast this spell.

The spell is sometimes used alongside various other Barrage spells, such as Ice Barrage, in multi-combat PvP activities. This method is normally used by players with high Magic, Defence, and Hitpoints levels.

The spell is also used by players to extend longevity at a dangerous location. In the God Wars Dungeon, Blood Barrage is ideal for healing on bodyguards, such as Tstanon Karlak and Zakl'n Gritch in K'ril Tsutsaroth's chamber, as well as on Flight Kilisa and Flockleader Geerin in Kree'arra's chamber after their corresponding general is defeated, to conserve supplies. It is a popular spell to use in the Inferno mini game, the smaller clumped monsters work best, like such as nibblers or bloblets (Jal-AkRek-Ket, Jal-AkRek-Xil, and Jal-AkRek-Mej). Some players also use it on Spinolyps at Dagannoth Kings.
