Abyssal whip detail

The Abyssal whip is a powerful one-handed Melee weapon, which requires an Attack level of 70 to wield. The whip is among the most powerful and popular non-degradable melee weapons and is capable of attacking at the same speed of daggers and scimitars at 2.4 seconds per hit.

Alongside being a rare drop from abyssal demons, there is a 3/32 chance to obtain an abyssal whip when using unsired, dropped by the Abyssal Sire, on the Font of Consumption.

A major downside of the abyssal whip is that it is not effective for training Strength; the only attack option available which will provide Strength experience is the "lash" attack option, which provides shared experience. As a result, several ostensibly weaker weapons are instead ideal for training Strength directly.

Furthermore, the whip is sparingly used by certain pures as the wielder must incur Attack and/or Defence experience.

Special attackEdit

Energy Drain

A player performing the abyssal whip's special attack, Energy drain.

The abyssal whip has a special attack, Energy Drain, which consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy, increases accuracy by 25%, and in PVP, transfers 10% of the target's run energy to the wielder.

UpgradingEdit

Players can attach a kraken tentacle to the abyssal whip to create an abyssal tentacle, which requires an Attack level of 75 and has +8 higher slash attack and +4 higher Strength bonus, equating to about 1 higher damage. This process, however, will cause the whip to be consumed, and cannot be undone. Once the abyssal tentacle consumes all of its charges, the player will retain the kraken tentacle.

Players can also use either a volcanic or frozen whip mix, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance the abyssal whip, creating a volcanic abyssal whip or a frozen abyssal whip, respectively. This only alters its appearance, and causes the whip to become untradeable. It can be reverted by using a cleaning cloth on the whip, but the mixes will not be returned.
