Intercept is a Seren spell that allows a player to take damage, including typeless damage, intended for another player for 10 seconds, with the damage reduced by 5%. It can be cast on an unlimited number of players. The protected player must have accept aid on. Ironmen accounts also have an additional requirement of having access to this spell in order to be protected.
The distance from the caster to the receiving player cannot exceed 16 squares; meaning that if the caster is on square 0, there can be at most 15 empty squares, and then the receiving player on square 16.
Barricade will nullify all redirected damage, making it particularly useful at Vorago due to the fight's emphasis on survival at some phases in the fight. It is not as useful against other bosses due to their fast nature.
It is not possible to cast Intercept while the player is Intercepted by another player.
If the receiving player uses Onslaught, Intercept will not block the recoil or any other attacks they take.
This spell cannot be used in Fist of Guthix.
