Keris partisan detail.png

The keris partisan is a one-handed melee weapon requiring 65 Attack to wield. It is obtained from Maisa as a reward for completing the quest Beneath Cursed Sands. Additional partisans can be purchased from Selim for 60,000 coins. Unlike the standard keris, weapon poisons cannot be applied to the partisan.

The keris partisan retains the effects of the keris, dealing 33% bonus damage against all Kalphites and Scabarites, alongside a 1/51 chance of puncturing a hole in their exoskeleton, dealing triple damage. When this special effect occurs, the chatbox will display the message: You slip your weapon through a gap in the creature's chitin, landing a vicious blow. Unlike the keris, however, the partisan provides a secondary crush bonus.

Players can attach one of three jewels, which are obtained as rewards from the Tombs of Amascut, to the keris partisan. Doing so increases the requirement to wield them to 80 Attack, and gives it differing effects within the raid.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
21 September 2022

The word "chink" has been swapped with "gap" when players deal a critical hit to kalphites and scabarites with the keris partisan. ("You slip your weapon through a chink in the creature's chitin, landing a vicious blow.")

24 August 2022
  • Players can now attach jewels acquired from the Tombs of Amascut to the partisan.
  • The item's inventory icon has been adjusted slightly.
4 May 2022

The keris partisan's slash attack bonus has been decreased from +58 to -2, as it does not have a slash combat style.
