Darklight is a demonbane weapon created from the sword Silverlight during the Shadow of the Storm quest. In that quest, it is transformed into Darklight after being used to destroy the demon Agrith-Naar, which coats it in his ichor. In addition, being that it is still made of silver, it is effective against vampyres.
If lost, Darklight can be repurchased from Sir Prysin in Varrock Palace for 1,000 coins.
Note: Darklight can only be replaced if all Silverlights are dropped.
Passive effect[edit | edit source]
Against non-demonic enemies, Darklight is a fairly weak weapon with bonuses equivalent to that of a steel longsword. When using Darklight to fight standard demons, boss demons, or vampyres, the player's maximum hit is increased to approximately the same level as a dragon longsword; however, its accuracy remains the same.
Special attack[edit | edit source]
Darklight has a special attack, Weaken, which consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy and lowers the opponent's Strength, Attack, and Defence levels by 5% (10% for demons) of their max level. This special is only activated when the player hits accurately and multiple special attacks will stack.
Upgrading[edit | edit source]
The Darklight can be upgraded into the Arclight by using three ancient shards on the Altar in the centre of the Catacombs of Kourend. Doing so further increases the effectiveness against demons and changes attack speed to 4. Attempting to use Ancient shards on Darklight, without being at the altar in the centre of the Catacombs of Kourend will result in a message stating: "You require additional power from the catacombs altar to create Arclight".
75 Attack is required to wield the Arclight.

The animation of Darklight's special attack no longer disrupts player movement as badly.
