Karil the Tainted's equipment is a set of Ranged armour and crossbow from the Barrows minigame. Completing the Barrows minigame does not guarantee players will get a Barrows item. The armour and weapon require level 70 Defence and level 70 Ranged to wear/wield. As Karil uses Ranged, his armour gives a high Magic defence rating, making it popular for fighting enemies with powerful Magic attacks. The crossbow, unlike many other crossbows, requires a special type of ammunition called Bolt racks. Bolt racks can be obtained by opening chests in the Barrows minigame, buying from Ak-Haranu on the Port Phasmatys docks for 420 coins each, trading with another player, or purchasing through the Grand Exchange.

Set effect[edit | edit source]

A player activating Karil's set effect, Tainted Shot.

Karil's Taint: Each successful hit has a chance of reducing the target's Magic level by five.

This effect works in both player killing and against regular monsters.

Repair[edit | edit source]

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Barrows equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.

There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.

The following NPCs can repair the armour:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Karil's set has a buy limit of 10 per 4 hours, while its individual components have linked buy limits of 1 / 4 hours. If you buy any one individual piece of this set you can not buy another for 4 hours. This is most likely an oversight by Jagex yet to be corrected.
  • Before the update on the 14 January 2013, Karil's equipment had the effect Tainted Shot. If the attack was successful, Tainted Shot had a chance of lowering the target player's Agility level by what was hit by 20%.
