Ancient shard detail.png

Ancient shards are obtained from monsters found within the Catacombs of Kourend (excluding ghosts). They are used on the altar in the centre of the catacombs for quick transportation to several areas (and are consumed on use):

Three can be used with a darklight to create an arclight, a degradeable variant of the darklight that provides stats superior to the abyssal tentacle when used against demons. Three shards provide 1,000 charges; up to a maximum of 10,000.

Item sources[edit | edit source]

The drop rate of ancient shards (excluding Skotizo) is determined by the amount of hitpoints the monster has.

The exact formula is , with the cap on hitpoints to treat anything with more than 400 hitpoints as if it had 400.
