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 shards can be used with a darklight at the altar in the centre of the Catacombs of Kourend 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]
