The amulet of the damned is an amulet that provides extra buffs to Barrows equipment. It can be obtained from silver and gold shade chests found in the Shade Catacombs. The amulet has the same bonuses as an amulet of glory.

Degradation[edit | edit source]

Like Barrows equipment, it can only be traded when it hasn't been used. It will degrade at the same rate as any other barrows armour, but once it fully degrades, it will turn to dust. It becomes untradeable once it degrades. Players with multiple amulets can combine charges.

Despite being untradeable (once degraded) it isn't kept automatically on death in a "safe" location. Should you die with the amulet, the amulet will turn to dust, making it impossible to recover.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The following bonuses are granted if a player wears a full set of Barrows equipment in conjunction with the amulet of the damned. These bonuses are in addition to the armours' set effects.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The amulet was originally polled as a drop from K'ril Tsutsaroth in the Old School feature poll #9: God Wars & Banks, where it would absorb a fraction of combat damage from any hitsplat over 15 hitpoints when worn with a full set of Barrows equipment. It gained 61.9% yes votes, 13.1% short of the passing threshold required. The introduction of the amulet was re-polled as a reward from the Shade Catacombs in Old School Content Poll #26, and passed with 75%.
  • Interestingly enough, although the amulet seems to be a piece of Barrows equipment, it does not require a Defence level to wear. It has the same stats as an amulet of glory .
  • The amulet is similar to RuneScape 3's Amulet of the forsaken, albeit giving different set effect buffs.
