A black kiteshield is a kiteshield requiring 10 Defence to wield. It shares the same defensive bonuses as a white kiteshield, though lacks the +1 prayer bonus. When compared to a mithril sq shield, it is about the same, with only a -1 magic defence loss but extra +1 ranged defence bonus.
The black kiteshield can be found in trimmed and heraldic forms from Treasure Trails.
Heraldic black kiteshields[edit | edit source]
The Heraldic black kiteshields can be gained from level 1 Treasure Trails but can be traded in the free worlds. There are five types of heraldic black kiteshields, designated h1 to h5 and they cannot be made through the Smithing skill.
Trimmed black kiteshields[edit | edit source]
A Black kiteshield (g) and a Black kiteshield (t) can both be obtained from level 1 Treasure Trails. They have the same stats as a normal black kiteshield and only have cosmetic differences. They cannot be made through the Smithing skill.
