A heraldic kiteshield is a decorative steel, adamant or rune kiteshield. Players can paint them on a shield easel or banner easel in a player-owned house if they have level 43 Crafting or higher and have been assigned a crest by Sir Renitee in the White Knights' Castle. Sir Renitee will not assign a crest unless the player has over level 16 Construction. A player's first crest assignment is free, and it costs 5,000 coins to change your crest to another one, however some crests have other requirements, detailed below. Players can use a shield easel in another players house if they do not have one in theirs. The shields have exactly the same stats as their steel, adamant or rune counterparts.
If a player is killed by another player, the shield will convert into a steel/adamant/rune kiteshield if it is not protected upon death, depending on the shield the player used to make the heraldic kiteshield.
Note: As of an update, the Saradomin and Zamorak heraldic shields will offer protection in the God Wars Dungeon.
- The examine information of the Horse heraldic kiteshield is in reference to a running gag in RuneScape in which horses are said not to exist.
- Many PvP clans designate a heraldic shield to be worn during wars.
