The Abomination is the mutated form of the dragonkin Tarshak and the final boss of the Hero's Welcome quest. It can be found in Tarshak's sanctum in the Brimhaven Dungeon.

Tarshak was a dragonkin of the Dactyl faction. After Sakirth imprisoned him and channeled V's power into him during Hero's Welcome, he started mutating. Phalaks has two theories for why this could happen. One is that it simply is a part of the curse of the dragonkin, the other that Tarshak can now grow extra cells where he needs them but can't remove them, thus changing his appearance and mind.[source needed] At first, the mutations only changed Tarshak's physical appearance slightly and increased his power. Soon, however, they also altered his mental state. The steady change of his appearance, increase in physical power, and loss of his ability to think rationally eventually turned him into the Abomination.

The second phase of the Abomination may be fought again after the quest by using the "refight" option on the banite ore rockfall. The Abomination has drops similar to that of rune dragons. Unique drops include the abomination cape, a tier 75 melee cape; dragon javelins; and their off-hand variants. It also drops the dragon full helm at a much higher rate compared to mithril and adamant dragons.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

During phase one of the quest fight, the Abomination has 198,000 life points, although it cannot be attacked. Instead, the player must chip away at the pillars and destroy them to collapse bane ore in the ceiling. After the collapse, phase two of the fight begins, but due to bane ore collapsing on the Abomination, its health will be reduced to 66,000.

The Abomination possesses five attacks:

  • A basic melee attack that has 100% hit chance and deals around 1300 damage at maximum.
  • A charge attack used when the player moves too far away from the Abomination that stuns the player and then causes the abomination to perform two rapid melee attacks.
  • A fireball that can be released with its melee attack that follows the player and deals 5% of their maximum health in typeless damage upon impact. The surrounding squares will be set alight and burn the player for 313% of their maximum health every two ticks; dragonfire protection has no effect whatsoever on this attack.
  • A slam attack that stuns the player and deals typeless damage equal to 1/8 of their maximum health; an onscreen warning message will show when it starts this attack.
  • Rocks falling from the ceiling that deal 3.33% of the player's maximum health in typeless damage. The falling rocks can land anywhere, including any safespots the player may use.

The fire attack and falling rocks will deal damage to the Abomination as well, but cannot kill it when its health is low.

All of its attacks are unaffected by any number of armour rating, so offensive armour should be used instead of tank armour. Protect from Melee or Deflect Melee will still halve the damage output, however.

The water pools in the northeast and southwest corners will prevent any damage from the area-of-effect fire damage, although it will not affect the initial impact.

Dragonbane ammo does not seem to deal extra damage and accuracy towards it. Using dominion mines can be very effective, each one hitting 10,000, and players can use up to two mines within a minute.
