Dharok the Wretched's equipment
Dharok the Wretched's equipment is obtainable from the Barrows Minigame. Note that completing the minigame does not guarantee you will get a Barrows item. Like all Barrows equipment, Dharok's armour requires 70 Defence to wear, while the Greataxe requires 70 Attack and Strength to wield. Over a period of time, like all Barrows items, the armour will degrade, making it untradeable when at or below 100% durability. It is only tradeable when fully repaired or fully broken (0%).
Set effect[edit | edit source]
Wretched Strength: The lower a player's remaining hitpoints are, the higher maximum hit the player can inflict with the set equipped. The full set, including Dharok's greataxe, must be equipped to yield the special effect.
When wearing the full Dharok's set, the following damage modifier is applied to a player's hit after the damage roll:
At 99 hitpoints, the formula approximates that for every 1 Hitpoint lost, the hit is 1% higher; so when a player has 99 Hitpoints and is reduced to 1, the set effect will deal close to double damage (97.02% higher). It is possible to hit 118 with the full set by using a Salve amulet (e) or Salve amulet(ei), wearing max possible Strength equipment, attacking an undead monster while being at 1 hitpoint and 99 Strength, using Piety and a Super strength potion or the Dragon battleaxe's special attack, Rampage. Due to the fact that at low hitpoints the risk of dying is very high, many players only use Dharok's for playing safe activities such as Pest Control, Nightmare Zone or when training on monsters with a low max hit such as Experiments. Alternatively, some players utilise the set effect while using the Protect from Melee prayer, especially in areas near altars.
Amulet of the damned[edit | edit source]
Using the Amulet of the damned along with a full set of Dharok's grants an additional bonus effect: a 25% chance per hit of recoiling 15% of the damage taken. This effect stacks with those of Vengeance and a Ring of recoil, up to a maximum recoil effect of 100%. Technically, if an opponent deals exactly 100 damage, you will reflect 101 points of damage, which is 101%. This is because the ring of recoil reflects 1 extra point of damage on any successful hit. However, because the damage reflected by each method is individually calculated, and the reflected damage is always rounded down to the nearest integer, you would often reflect slightly less damage than the full hit.
Dharoking[edit | edit source]
Many players using Dharok's intentionally lower their Hitpoints to take advantage of the set effect, colloquially referred to as "Dharoking". Common methods of lowering Hitpoints are:
- Locator orb from Dragon Slayer II will deal 10 damage each click, without being able to kill the player, making it the fastest safe method.
- Dwarven rock cakes has the options to eat, dealing 1 damage each click, or guzzle, dealing 10% of current hitpoints (rounded up) each click. You cannot die from the rock cake's effects, making it a fast and safe method.
- Drinking an Overload at Nightmare Zone, dealing the player 10 damage 5 times in a rapid succession.
- Dropping nitroglycerin, which will deal 25 damage, or 35 if it has been identified by the archaeological expert at the Exam Centre.
- Using the Lunar spells Heal Other or Heal Group, both of which hit for 75% of the player's Hitpoints.
- Drinking Zamorak brews, which remove 10% +2 of remaining Hitpoints.
- Attacking Splatters at Pest Control, which explode upon death, damaging all nearby players. Dharok's set is commonly used in Pest Control as it is a safe minigame, and the dangerous nature of Dharok's set makes death more likely.
- Using the fire traps in Oubliette in a Player-owned house rapidly removes 2-4 Hitpoints per tick.
- Picking nettles without gloves on, which deals 6 points of damage per attempt.
- Drinking from a Poison chalice, which can hit you for 3 to 60 damage, or cause one of several other effects. It also has a good chance to heal you for 4 hitpoints, and is more likely to heal you at higher hitpoint levels. Because of its ability to heal you, it is not recommended for lowering HP. See the Poison chalice page for more information.
