Description: Killing smoke nihils
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

The Smoke nihil is fought during the Fate of the Gods quest alongside the ice nihil, the shadow nihil and the blood nihil in the Pit of Freneskae. After the quest, smoke nihils can be summoned at the centre of the Pit through a dialogue box.

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

The smoke nihil, like the other nihil in the arena, runs across the halls and into holes in the wall, causing damage to and draining the stats of any players that stand in its way. It always runs west, 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 smoke nihil has a very high defence, so players are recommended to bring weapons that are at least level 70.

Like the other nihils, the smoke nihil has a special attack which it uses after 8 auto attacks, giving a "hiss" warning before its use. When activated, the nihil attempt to choke a player using a smoke barrage. This special attack does not deal any direct damage to the player. Instead, it reduces all combat stats by 5 every tick. Smoke-resisting headwear, such as a slayer helmet or a facemask, will not prevent this attack's effects from occurring; however, it can be avoided entirely by using Overload potions, or by running at least two steps away from the spot the player was when the nihil hissed.

After the quest, the nihils may be fought for their drops. 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.

Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."

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.
