Imbuing is the process of upgrading or enhancing certain items. Most imbues are rewards from Nightmare Zone, whilst others are imbued by other means.

Nightmare Zone imbues[edit | edit source]

Points earned in Nightmare Zone can be spent in the reward shop to imbue the following items, the effect of the imbue varies by item.

The imbued black mask, slayer helmet, and salve amulet are enhanced so that their effects apply to Magic and Ranged as well, and imbued rings have increased stats.

Imbuing an item will add an (i) to its name and will give it an "Uncharge" option. The uncharge option removes the imbued bonus, and will refund 80% of the points back.

Other imbues[edit | edit source]

The magic shortbow can be imbued using a magic shortbow scroll, purchased from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing, to become a magic shortbow (i), increasing its Ranged attack bonus from +69 to +75 and lowering the special attack cost from 55% to 50%.

The ring of wealth can be imbued using a ring of wealth scroll, purchased from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing, along with 50,000 coins, to become a ring of wealth (i), the imbued ring doubles the chance to receive a clue scroll drop within the Wilderness.

Molten glass (i), while not a typical imbued item, can be imbued during The Fremennik Exiles quest in order to make lunar glass.

God capes[edit | edit source]

Players with level 75 in Magic can imbue a god cape by taking a Justiciar's hand, Ent's roots and a Demon's heart to Kolodion during Mage Arena II miniquest. After the quest, players can obtain more imbued capes by simply bringing the respective component of the god cape that they wish to imbue; it is not necessary to kill all three god followers again to make another imbued cape. These can also be combined with max capes to become imbued god max capes.

Soul Wars imbues[edit | edit source]

Imbues from the Nightmare Zone are also available at Soul Wars. However, players who imbued their items at the Nightmare Zone cannot un-imbue their items for Zeal Tokens.

Imbuing an item provides extra bonuses and appends an (i) suffix to the item's name. Imbued items can be uncharged, which removes the bonuses from the item and refunds (?)% of the reward points used to imbue it.

Imbuing all available items would require a total of (3,950) reward points.
