Listed below are all the curse effects currently available within RuneScape and what Prayer level you will need in order to use them. The drain rate is how quickly your prayer points will decrease while the curse is active; 1 will drain slower than 10 for example.

Notes

* Like the 'Protect from' prayers, Deflect curses stop 50% of damage caused by NPCs and other players (in PvP). In addition, they also have a chance of deflecting some of the damage they would have caused back onto the attacker. As with 'Protect from' prayers, you can only deflect one style of combat at a time (Magic, Melee or Ranged). Creatures that can only be damaged in a specific way (for example, the Vyrewatch can only be damaged by the Ivandis flail/Blisterwood weapons) cannot be hurt using a deflect curse.

+ You can have multiple Sap or Leech curses active at the same time (e.g. Sap Mage, Sap Warrior and Sap Ranger), but you cannot have a Sap and Leech curse of the same type active at the same time (e.g. you cannot have Sap Ranger and Leech Ranged active together).

~ You can only have one of these curses active at any one time. Turmoil cannot be used with any Sap or Leech curses.


Sap and Leech Curses

Once a sap or leech curse is activated, it immediately drains your opponent's stat by 10%. Keeping the curse activated will slowly continue to drain your opponent's stat up to a maximum of 20% (for sap curses) or 25% (for leech curses). When the curse is deactivated, the initial 10% that was drained will be immediately restored to your opponent's stat, however, any subsequent drain that had occurred since activation will slowly regenerate over time as usual. The boost to your own stat when using a leech curse works in the same way.
