Verac the Defiled is the youngest of the six Barrows brothers. Like most brothers, he attacks with melee, using his flail.

Verac's set effect: Verac's Defilement, allows Verac's hits to have a chance to ignore the player's armour bonuses in a similar fashion to a player wearing a full set of Verac's equipment. This effect does not trigger any animations or sound effects, so players should monitor their life points carefully. Protect from Melee/Deflect Melee is advised when attacking Verac to lower his overall max hit.

Barrows[edit | edit source]

Verac's crypt is located to the north-west of the Barrows area. He also shares this crypt with Akrisae the Doomed after completion of the Ritual of the Mahjarrat quest. He has a max hit of around 1500 and should not be taken lightly.

Verac's weakness is Earth spells, therefore it is recommended to use spells such as Earth Surge or Shadow Barrage against him. He can also be taken down easily with other strong spells, or strong melee weapons such as chaotic or drygore weaponry.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Verac does not drop his main rewards directly; instead, his equipment is added as possible rewards from the Barrows chest. See Barrows#Rewards for more information. However, Verac can directly drop the following items.

Rise of the Six[edit | edit source]

Verac returns with his 5 brothers in Barrows - Rise of the Six, greatly enhanced by Sliske's experiments into the Shadow Realm. As when fought normally, he retains his set effect, and also has various other abilities. He can use an ability called Soul Bind where he will bind the player's soul to a spot marked by a green target with arrows. While outside of the area, the player will suffer a rapid prayer drain unless they move to that spot.

2016 Easter event[edit | edit source]

During the 2016 Easter event, Verac the Defiled and his brothers play a role as the workers (bobble-numbskulls) of Sliske's chocolate factory. They resembled their bobble-head versions.

Kindred Spirits[edit | edit source]

During Kindred Spirits, Verac is subjected to torture in one of Sliske's "games", and he requests the player to release the Zamorak statue to shown his devotion to Saradomin. However, the player manages to find out he is lying and rips out a Saradomin key from him, revealing to them and his fellow brothers that even though he is supposedly a devout follower of Saradomin, he secretly worships Zamorak.

Sliske's Endgame[edit | edit source]

Verac, along with his brothers, appeared in Sliske's Endgame, being the second intended wave in Sliske's attempts to destroy the World Guardian. However, the Barrows Brothers had managed to regain a modicum of control over their own actions, and chose to aid the World Guardian, attacking Sliske's wights and champions.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 5 January 2015 (Update):
    • Verac the Defiled is now affected by the Ghost Hunter armour's benefits.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Verac, along with all the other barrows brothers, received a graphical update on 4 January 2012 to make him look more like a player wearing his items rather than the old graphics style which displayed an unclear, purely pink coloured apparition.
  • Verac the Defiled's armour is based on the armour of "the Myrmillo", one of the five types of gladiators in ancient Rome. It has many resemblances, the most obvious of which being his brassard, single plated arm and fish-finned helm, a design based loosely among Roman legionaries. However, in contrast, the armoured plating is on his wrong arm for a Myrmillo.
