The Blade of Saeldor is a magical sword that once belonged to Saeldor, an elite elven warrior, that can be obtained as a rare drop from the The Gauntlet. Requiring level 75 Attack to wield, it provides the highest strength and slash bonus out of any weapon for its attack speed, surpassing the abyssal tentacle as the best slash weapon. It is tied for the strongest one-handed melee weapon in the game with the Ghrazi rapier.

When obtained, the blade is inactive and must be charged with crystal shards in order for it to gain its stat bonuses, with each shard granting 100 charges, up to a maximum of 20,000. During combat, one charge is depleted for each hit, whether it is a successful one or not; wearing an elven signet will not provide the chance to not consume charges. Using the shard value of making divine super combat potions, the cost per charge is 141.82. As a comparison, the abyssal tentacle costs 267.32 per charge.

If the player dies in PvP, the broken blade is dropped, and all shards used to charge it will be lost. In PvM on the other hand, all current charges will be kept upon death.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In J.R.R. Tolkien's constructed elvish language, Sindarin, Saeldor means "wise brother".
  • In the Song of the Elves rewards poll, the Blade of Saeldor was proposed to have a special attack called Saeldor's Strike, which consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy and deals 50% additional damage, as well as knockback and stun the target like the dragon spear's special attack does. It only received 70.5% votes in favour, 4.5% short of passing the poll.
