Rasial, the First Necromancer

Introduction

In order to fight Rasial you must complete the Alpha vs Omega quest. Rasial deals Necromancy and typeless damage, and can currently only be killed using Necromancy.

Positioning

⬥ The tile shown above serves as a safespot for the ghost wall mechanic.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This tile is ideal as it keeps you 5 tiles away for quicker deathskulls

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• For the soul obelisks, you may run 4 tiles west (toward obelisk), and 2-4 east.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ Doing this allows deathskulls to kill one of the soul obelisks.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ This is only recommended if you have the ruthless perk.

Mechanics

Dive
⬥ Before the last phase, Rasial uses dive to avoid the player if the player stands within a 2 square radius (scythe range) of him.     • It is not feasible to use spectralscythe against him.     • Getting this mechanic may cancel deathskulls bounces. ​
Conjure familiars
⬥ Rasial can conjure skeletal warriors conjureskeleton and putrid zombies conjurezombie to attack the player.     • Unlike the player, he can conjure multiple of each.     • It's recommended to ignore them throughout the fight. ​
Soul stacks
⬥ Rasial can gain residualsoul and use soulsap like the player, and holds up to 5 stacks, shown by green orbs under his health bar.     • At 5 stacks, he shouts 'This is true power!' and uses volleyofsouls. Flick deflectnecromancy (+ devo if needed) to avoid taking heavy damage.     • The rotations outlined below should skip this mechanic consistently. ​
Soul obelisk
⬥ At 700k HP, Rasial summons 2 soul obelisks with 12,000 HP each.     • They each have a bar which fills repeatedly. Upon filling, Rasial will get a residualsoul stack.     • It's recommended to ignore this mechanic and focus on DPSing the boss. ​
Spirit wall
⬥ Rasial summons a wall of 7 ghosts behind the player which moves forward, dealing heavy typeless damage upon contact.     • If using movement abilities surge dive to avoid this stay within 5 tiles of Rasial for deathskulls ​    • Standing next to the barrier will avoid ghosts entirely. ​
Spectral scythe
⬥ Rasial pulls the player to him and uses spectralscythe, shouting 'I will reap your soul!'
Phase 4
⬥ At 200K HP, Rasial jumps to the upper deck of the citadel and briefly becomes immune, remaining stationary and stopping all mechanics mentioned above.     • Necrotic explosions will occur, following the player. If hit, players take heavy Necromancy damage. Rasial's auto attacks are also always empowered, dealing double damage and disabling protection prayers antitheism

Optimisation Notes (Optional)
⬥ Rasial can be lured near to one of the soul obelisks, allowing deathskulls to bounce to it and kill it, granting an additional ruthless stack and slowing his soul buildup. ⬥ salveamulet boost is applied on cast and eof on hit, swapping between these amulets can boost your splitsoul damage for major hits deathskulls volleyofsouls fingerofdeath     • Swapping to eof before the pre-build allows conjures to spawn with higher ability damage. ⬥ zorgothsring may be equipped before the pre-build to boost conjure damage.     • May also be used as a switch for basic abilities after the 2nd bloat
