The deathtouched dart (sometimes called the instakill dart) is an item that, when equipped, can instantly kill any enemy hit with it. Each dart can only be used once and will not work on players. To use one, equip it and your next attack will instantly kill your target.

The darts are available as prizes on the Balthazar's Big Raffle for all members during September 2014. Previously, the darts were obtained by using the fate cards - a reward from the Choose Your Fate promotion for all players who had been members for all of August and September 2012. Each player could obtain a maximum of four darts and they expired at the end of 31st December 2012.

The deathtouched dart has some exceptions. The dart cannot be used in Dungeoneering, or on any of the following NPCs:

You are also blocked from throwing darts at Slayer creatures you don't have the level for, but you can boost to use darts if you wish, to match normal methods. The dart can be used on Vorago, but this skips a phase rather than outright killing him. Darts used on Araxxor in any phase will skip the player onto the Araxxi fight, and a second dart may be used on Araxxi. Note that this item cannot be used on enemies with multiple forms (previously this was allowed but it would skip any dialogue options and cut scenes that may have occurred between the form changes).

Deathtouched darts cannot be used to meet completionist cape requirements, such as achieving boss kills towards 'the Reaper' title, nor will they unlock 'the Defeater' title from Vorago. They cannot be used to reach fast times for the Boss Timer.
