The blood nihil is a creature first encountered during the Fate of the Gods quest. It causes melee based damage, and is not weak to any particular combat style.

It can be found, amongst other nihil, within the Pit area of Freneskae. To summon the nihil, you must stand in the center of the room to activate the pressure pad, and several nihil will charge out of holes in the walls. This can be done during the quest - where you must defeat one of each type of nihil - or after the quest.

Avoid the nihil's charge attacks where you can, and hit them to make them stop in their tracks. It is best to approach from the sides to avoid their charges and get a hit in.

The nihil has three attacks:

  • Normal Attack - Melee - these attacks will heal all other nihil if they are in combat
  • Charge Attack - If hit when they are charging, a bleed Damage over Time (DoT) attack will be placed on you
  • Special Attack - The nihil will soak incoming damage, during which time ANY damage it receives will heal it.

Nihil can be given as a Slayer assignment. They have a level 76 Slayer requirement and can only be assigned by Kuradal. The assignment must first be unlocked for 50 slayer reward points.

There are four types of nihil: blood nihil, ice nihil, smoke nihil and shadow nihil. These nihil are also available as Summoning familiars.
