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.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
17 September 2015
(update)

The topology of the amulet of damned has been improved to reduce clipping.

2 July 2015
(update)

Recoil damage will now always target the entity that caused the initial damage, rather than the most recent entity to deal damage.

8 January 2015
(update)

The item's inventory appearance was slightly adjusted, so it no longer levitates when dropped.
