Tormented demons possess a number of formidable powers. They can attack with all three combat styles, shield themselves from damage, and even use protection prayers. They are often killed (either by single players, or teams of players) for their unique drops, namely dragon limbs, used to forge the dragon crossbow (which is in turn used to forge the Ascension crossbow), as well as the pieces of the dragon platebody. Aside from these, they have a number of other valuable drops, such as charms, herbs, armour and weapons, and clue scrolls. Tormented demons commonly drop rune equipment.
