Magic Dart (also referred to as Slayer Dart) requires 50 Magic and 55 Slayer to cast. The spell requires a slayer's staff, slayer's staff (e), staff of the dead, toxic staff of the dead, staff of light or staff of balance to be wielded in order to cast it. All these staves can autocast the spell.

If cast using an enchanted slayer's staff, the projectile becomes a white colour instead of green.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Magic Dart is currently the only combat spell in the standard spellbook that does not require any elemental runes.
  • Magic Dart is one of the few magic attacks and the only spell whose max hit increases with the player's Magic level. The others are the trident of the seas/swamp and Sanguinesti staff's respective auto-cast spells, and the salamanders' magic attacks.
