Ancient godsword detail.png

The ancient godsword is one of the five variants of the Godsword created by using an ancient hilt, obtained from Nex, on a completed godsword blade. As with all godsword variants, it requires level 75 Attack to wield.

The design of the hilt bears the Zarosian symbol, and was created under Nex's orders after her escape from the Ancient Prison. Though the hilt was created, it never saw usage as the four armies of the gods joined forces to imprison Nex once more before the weapon could be completed.

As a Zarosian item, it will also grant god protection towards Zarosian NPCs in the God Wars Dungeon.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player uses Blood Sacrifice, the Ancient godsword's special attack

Like all godswords, the Ancient godsword has a special attack, Blood Sacrifice. In addition to doubled accuracy, it inflicts damage with a 10% higher maximum hit than a normal attack, consuming 50% of the player's special attack energy.

Upon a successful hit, the target will be marked for sacrifice and will have eight ticks (4.8 seconds) to move at least five tiles away from the attacker. If the target fails to do so, they will take 25 damage and the attacker will be healed for the same amount.[1] Praying Protect from Magic will not reduce the sacrifice damage.

The Magic damage will always hit 0 on cyclopes in the Warriors' Guild, as with all non-melee damage there. It will also hit 0 on Callisto as he is immune to Magic damage. However, it will still heal the player for 25.

  • While a target is marked for sacrifice after successfully landing a hit with the godsword's special attack, it is impossible to dismantle it.
