Old School RuneScape Wiki

Flames of Zamorak is a combat spell in the standard spellbook requiring 60 Magic and completion of The Mage Arena activity to cast. A player can cast this spell only while wielding the Zamorak staff, a Staff of the dead, or Toxic staff of the dead at the cost of 2 Blood runes, 4 Fire runes, and 1 Air rune. Only the Staff of the dead can autocast this spell.

When this spell successfully hits a player, it decreases their Magic level by 5% but the decrease does not stack. Since Magic level does affect magic defence though, this does cause the subsequent attacks to be more accurate, but the max hit will not be increased.

The base max hit of this spell without modifiers is 20. However, when a player casts the Charge spell and wears a Zamorak cape, the base max hit is increased to 30. Using a Staff of the dead, occult necklace, Slayer helmet (i) and tormented bracelet would raise the maximum hit to 44 if fighting a monster on task.

While a rune-providing staff cannot be used with this spell, a tome of fire will provide unlimited fire runes.
