The blade of Saeldor (c) is a corrupted version of the blade of Saeldor that does not degrade, with its appearance altered to be similar to that of corrupted crystal seen within The Corrupted Gauntlet.
The blade can be upgraded by bringing it and 1,000 crystal shards to a singing bowl. Doing so requires level 82 Smithing and Crafting (the levels can be boosted), and grants no experience. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 500 crystal shards. Excess charges in the blade will be taken into account; for example, a fully charged blade will only cost 800 crystal shards to upgrade.
While untradeable, the blade can be uncharged, but the crystal shards used to upgrade it will not be returned.
Like its unupgraded variant, the blade requires level 75 Attack to wield, and 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 and the Inquisitor's mace.
