Seercull detail.png

The seercull is a Fremennik bow, obtainable only as a rare drop from Dagannoth Supreme, and requires a Ranged level of 50 to wield. Compared to a magic shortbow, it has a slower rate of fire and a different special attack which is more effective against mages.

The name can be attributed to the combination of the word seer (another word for "mage or wizard") and the word cull (another word for "kill"). In other words, the mage-killer. This is a fitting name because of the effect of its special attack and its examine text.

Special attack

A player using the bow's special attack, Soulshot.

The seercull has a special attack, Soulshot, which consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy. It is guaranteed to hit and lowers the Magic level of the opponent by the damage dealt. However, damage inflicted by Soulshot is unaffected by Ranged prayers (such as Eagle Eye) and the slayer helmet (i).

Due to the nature of its special attack, the seercull is not commonly used in combat outside of PvP. Rarely would a special attack that lowers the magic level come in use while training or fighting bosses. In PvP combat, the special attack gains use for its ability to lower the Magic level of a mage to prevent them from casting spells. However, this effect is likely to be mitigated by use of super restore potions, which are commonly used in lieu of prayer potions.
