Ice nihil icon.png

The Ice nihil is fought during the Fate of the Gods quest alongside the smoke nihil, the shadow nihil and the blood nihil.

The ice nihil is a member of the nihil race, created by Zaros during his testing of genetic manipulation. By its examine, the ice nihil was likely created by weaving the essence of an icyene.

Players also see an ice nihil momentarily during the trek through Freneskae, darting briefly through a hole in a wall after players pass a ledge. It is fought in the Pit alongside the other nihils.

The ice nihil, like the other nihils in the arena, runs across the halls and into holes in the wall, causing damage to and draining prayer points from any players that stand in its way. It always runs south, appearing from a different hole each time, until the player attacks it and draws its attention, at which point it solely focuses on using magic.

The ice nihil always drains 50 prayer points from the player, regardless of how much damage is done. As the ice nihil has 100% accuracy, power armour is advised over tank to kill it faster. Every 8 auto attacks the ice nihil will say "Hiss.", which will stun and freeze the player for six seconds. This stun/bind can be removed with Freedom; Anticipation can be used in advance to completely stop the stun and freeze effects.

For players obtaining "the Annihilator" title, it is recommended to kill the ice nihil first once all four nihil are attacking the player as it has more troublesome effects compared to the other nihil.

After the quest, the nihils may be fought for their drops. The Pit is empty when entered, but nihils can be summoned at the centre of the Pit through a dialogue box. They are aggressive unless the Shard of Zaros is equipped. Players with level 76 Slayer or higher will also be able to request nihils from a slayer master (Kuradal, Morvran, or Laniakea) at the cost of 50 slayer reward points.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • update 19 May 2014 (Update):
    • Slayer version added to game.
      • Those of you who've completed Fate of the Gods now have access to nihil and muspah slayer targets, nihil summoned familiars and new dragon equipment drops.
      • The nihil drop ingredients that - with 87 Summoning and completion of the quest - can be used with elder energy, elder charms and pouches to make nihil familiars.
      • We've added a Nihil Transmute ability at Divination level 81, which allows you to expend elder energy to turn the ingredients dropped by the nihil into other types. Since the nihil types spawn at random and only drop their corresponding ingredients, this is sure to come in handy.
  • update 24 March 2014 (Update):
    • Added to game.
      • Freneskae added to game with the quest Fate of the Gods. Boss version of the Nihil added with the quest.
