Crystal equipment is a range of degradable weapons and armour made from elven crystal. Crystal combat equipment requires completion of Roving Elves to use, as well as 50 Agility (although 56 Agility is a boostable requirement to travel through Tirannwn), among other skill requirements unique to each piece. Crystal tools and crystal armour can only be obtained after Song of the Elves. There is also the crystal saw, which is a reward from the quest The Eyes of Glouphrie.

Upon death in the Wilderness, the killer will receive the seed form of the crystal equipment.

Creation[edit | edit source]

All crystal equipment may be sung from a certain type of crystal seed and varying amounts of crystal shards by the player via the use of a singing bowl, which requires various levels in Crafting and Smithing. If players do not have the requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese nearby create the items for them for additional crystal shards.

However, for items created via crystal weapon seeds, players can take them to Ilfeen, who will the items for coins rather than crystal shards.

Crystal weapons[edit | edit source]

Crystal weapon seeds can create three types of equipment: crystal bows, shields and halberds. However, the halberd can only be created after completion of the Hard Western Provinces Diary.

The Blade of Saeldor cannot be made out of crystal weapon seeds.

Cost[edit | edit source]

While players can use a singing bowl to create crystal combat equipment out of crystal weapon seeds, they can alternatively have Ilfeen enchant them to crystal bows and shields, as well as crystal halberds after completion of the Hard Western Provinces Diary, for coins. The price she charges depends on how many times players have approached her to enchant the weapon seeds:

Enchantment Cost for crystal bow Cost for crystal shield Cost for crystal halberd
First 900,000 750,000
Second 720,000 600,000
Third 540,000 450,000
Fourth 360,000 300,000
Fifth and thereafter 180,000 150,000

Crystal armour[edit | edit source]

Crystal armour seeds can create three pieces of armour: the crystal helm, body and legs. These can only be created by the player at a singing bowl, or by having Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 60 crystal shards per piece.

Crystal armours have a special set effect where each armour piece will gives a 3% damage boost and 6% accuracy bonus to the crystal bow. If all pieces are worn, the player receives a 15% damage boost and 30% accuracy bonus.

The armour pieces start off at 2,500 charges; the maximum charges that can be stored is 5,000. One charge is depleted for each hit that is received from combat. To recharge the armour pieces, the player must load in crystal shards (this can be done before it is inactive as well). Dismantling a crystal armour piece will return the crystal armour seed to the player and doing so will lose all crystal shard charges that were previously loaded.

Crystal tools[edit | edit source]

Crystal tool seeds can create three pieces of equipment: the crystal axe, pickaxe and harpoon, which share the same combat stats as their dragon equivalents but offer faster gathering speeds. These can only be created by the player at a singing bowl, or by having Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 60 crystal shards per piece.

The tools start off at 10,000 charges; the maximum charges that can be stored is 20,000. One charge is depleted for each item that is obtained using the tool. To recharge the tools, the player must load in crystal shards (this can be done before it is inactive as well). Dismantling a crystal tool will return the dragon equivalent and crystal tool seed to the player and doing so will lose all crystal shard charges that were previously loaded.

(update)
Crystal equipment now reverts to a seed when dropped on death.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There was once a glitch that allowed players to cast High Level Alchemy on crystal bows and crystal shields in free-to-play worlds and make several thousand coins per piece. Players could buy crystal seeds from other players, pay the reduced recharge cost, and make large sums of money. Because of this glitch, it is no longer possible to alchemise crystal equipment at all.
