Granite shield detail.png

The Granite shield is a shield made of granite. It requires 50 Defence and 50 Strength to equip. It has defensive stats equal to the Toktz-ket-xil, minus the +5 strength bonus, and isn't commonly used for melee combat as a result.

It is more commonly used than the Rune kiteshield due to its superior ranged defence bonus. However, some players choose not to use it due to its weight and slightly lower melee defence bonuses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the shield has lower melee defence bonuses than a Rune kiteshield, it has a higher Defence requirement. The granite shield is one of two pieces of the set with weaker melee defence stats (the other being Granite legs) than its rune equivalent.
  • The granite shield may have been modelled after the real life island Gran Canaria, due to its striking similarity in shape.
