Crystal weapon seed detail.png

A crystal weapon seed is an elven crystal that can be turned into crystal weapons. A crystal seed is awarded to the player upon completion of the Roving Elves quest, and completing The Gauntlet will yield a chance of gaining these seeds. The crystal weapon seed can be bought from the Grand exchange or from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing for 12 Last Man Standing points.

The crystal seed is converted back into crystal equipment by means of chanting; Ilfeen is the only one to offer this service to the player. She is found teleporting back and forth between two clearings in Isafdar. However, after completion of Song of the Elves, she can be found in the western part of Prifddinas, slightly south of the house portal. Players can then choose between a crystal bow or a crystal shield. For the same price as a shield, a crystal halberd is also available to players who have completed the Hard Western Provinces Diary.

Players can also exchange the weapon seed for 10 crystal shards by speaking to Amrod in Prifddinas' Hefin Inn. The seed can additionally be traded to Pennant in Prifddinas for one crystal acorn.

Please note: when converting a crystal seed to a crystal bow and crystal shield, they will become a crystal bow full and crystal shield full respectively, and CAN NOT be traded or be used for high alchemy.

Pricing[edit | edit source]

For the first four times a crystal seed is converted into equipment, the cost of Ilfeen's next service is decreased by 180,000 or 150,000 coins depending on what equipment the player requests. The initial price of bows and shields/halberds are 900,000 and 750,000 coins respectively. The minimum price for bows and shields/halberds are 180,000 and 150,000 coins respectively.

Please note that the price of re-enchantment is contingent on the number of crystal seeds Ilfeen has recharged, and not on the number of individual equipment pieces she has recharged. For example, a player who pays Ilfeen 900,000 coins to re-enchant a crystal seed into a crystal bow would then only have to pay her 600,000 coins to recharge a seed into a crystal shield. Therefore, players who wish to stock up on many pieces of equipment are advised to pay for the shields or halberds first.

Crystal bow:

Enchantment Cost for re-enchantment
First 900,000
Second 720,000
Third 540,000
Fourth 360,000
Fifth and thereafter 180,000

Crystal shield or halberd:

Enchantment Cost for re-enchantment
First 750,000
Second 600,000
Third 450,000
Fourth 300,000
Fifth and thereafter 150,000

Weapon Singing[edit | edit source]

After completion of the Song of the Elves quest players will be able to use crystal shards to sing weapons themselves, requiring 78 Crafting as well as 78 Smithing. This can be done at the singing bowl located just south of the player owned house portal in the city of Prifddinas. Another singing bowl can be found in the southeast corner of Prifddinas just east of the mining shop. Players who do not meet the skill requirements can pay a nearby elf to create the weapon for an additional 20 shards.

The amount of crystal shards needed to sing a piece of legacy crystal equipment are as follows:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When Song of the Elves was released, crystal weapons and crystal seeds were turned into crystal weapon seeds.
  • The book, 'Crystal singing for beginners', states that there is no known way to destroy a crystal seed. However, players are able to do so through the bank's incinerator feature.
  • Once the equipment runs out of charges, the crystal seed remains "equipped" by the player, but it offers no stats and results in unarmed combat.
  • Although crystal seeds are rarely found by players, their exchange price had steadily declined until the release of Song of the Elves, when it could be exchanged for crystal acorns via Pennant, as it is very rare for a player to lose a seed without discarding it on purpose. Moreover, it is available from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing and, due to being a very popular boss, Zulrah's rare crystal seed drop had been encountered many times before its removal from the drop table.
