Leaf-bladed sword detail.png

The leaf-bladed sword is one of three melee weapons used to harm turoths and kurasks, along with the leaf-bladed spear and battleaxe.

The sword requires an Attack level of 50 and a Slayer level of 55 to wield. It is a good alternative to the leaf-bladed spear as it attacks faster, has higher slash and stab bonuses, and is one-handed, enabling the use of a shield or defender if desired.

It is dropped by turoths and kurasks, both located in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon.

Unlike the leaf-bladed battleaxe, the sword does not have a 17.5% damage and accuracy buff against turoths and kurasks and, though faster, has much lower stats, so players with an Attack level of 65 are greatly encouraged to use the axe over the sword.

Leaf-bladed sword vs. dragon scimitar[edit | edit source]

The dragon scimitar is one of the most popular weapons in RuneScape; it is a fast, one-handed weapon with decent strength and accuracy. Scimitars are also considered to be much better than regular swords of the same metal. For example, rune scimitars are better than rune swords in both accuracy and strength but equal in speed. The leaf-bladed sword is considered a good substitute for the dragon sword. It has a lower strength bonus than the scimitar just as it is with other metals, but the attack bonuses are identical, making the leaf-bladed sword more useful in certain circumstances than other swords would be.

The leaf-bladed sword's stab bonus of 67 is the same as the dragon scimitar's slash bonus of 67. Because the two weapons share the same attack speed and accuracy, the leaf-bladed sword is a more accurate option for killing monsters that are weak against stab attacks, such as chromatic dragons or metal dragons.

With a defender, the leaf-bladed sword is more accurate than the dragon scimitar, does not require the completion of a Master quest (Monkey Madness I), and only requires 50 Attack to wield. However, the strength bonus of the scimitar is 66 while the sword has only 50 (76% of the scimitar's bonus): at 99 Strength and wielding only the weapons, a leaf-bladed sword can hit 21 while the dragon scimitar can hit 24. The leaf-bladed sword also lacks a special attack (though most players agree the dragon scimitar's special attack is not very useful outside PvP worlds or PvP activities) and requires 55 Slayer to wield.

If slash must be used, another weapon such as a dragon scimitar or an abyssal whip would be preferred.
