Saradomin godsword detail.png

The Saradomin godsword is one of the four variants of the Godsword that was fought over during the God Wars. Requiring 75 Attack to wield, it is created by adding the Saradomin hilt to a completed godsword blade. This weapon is rare as players must enter the Saradomin Encampment in the God Wars Dungeon in order to defeat Commander Zilyana, who can drop a Saradomin hilt.

Players can attach a Saradomin godsword ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to cosmetically enhance the godsword, creating a Saradomin godsword (or). This only alters its appearance, and gives no stat enhancements. It also becomes untradeable, but it can be dismantled, returning both the godsword and the ornament kit.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performs the Saradomin godsword's special attack, Healing Blade.

The Saradomin godsword has a special attack called Healing Blade, which consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy. When used, the player's max hit is increased by 10%, their accuracy is doubled, and it restores Hitpoints and Prayer equal to 50% and 25% respectively, of the damage dealt (rounded up in even intervals). This effect only occurs on a successful hit, and any hit below 22 damage will always heal the player for 10 Hitpoints and restore 5 Prayer points.

The special attack will restore health and prayer even if used against a target that has lower health or has immunity to conventional weaponry. For example, kurasks can only be harmed by leaf-bladed weaponry, broad bolts, or the Magic Dart spell. If the Saradomin godsword would have hit a 40 on the kurask (which would result in 0 damage), it would still heal the player for 20 hitpoints and restore 10 prayer points. This also applies to any killing blows by the special attack; if a target had 2 hitpoints remaining and was struck with a special hit that would have dealt 60 damage, the player would still be healed for 30 hitpoints and restore 15 prayer points.

The special attack animation's colours can be changed to gold, which costs 75 Last Man Standing points. Once unlocked, the gold trim can be toggled at Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing whenever the player desires.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Players may use the Godsword's special to train against monsters as its special attack will reduce food and prayer usage over time. Its special attack allows for very effective and quick healing. However, it does not provide nearly as many healing opportunities as Guthan's armour set or blood spells; it does not replace Guthan's armour set in situations where continuous healing is required.

Since Godswords are two-handed weapons, they are not recommended for constant use against dragons, Skeletal Wyverns, or any monster requiring a shield to kill. However, the special attack can still be useful for its healing and prayer restoring effect with quick switches, especially when combined with an anti-fire potion which negates most of the dragonfire damage even if the player gets hit while vulnerable. Protect from Magic can be used as an alternative with chromatic dragons (or in conjunction with anti-fire potions), but it will not work against metal dragons' or wyverns' breath.

(update | poll)

The accurate attack style of the Godswords has been adjusted to use slash rather than crush. As the slash attack bonus on Godswords has always been higher than the crush bonus, having the accurate attack style of the weapons use slash rather than crush means that the accurate attack style takes advantage of the best offensive bonus of the weapon.

  • The Accurate combat mode of godswords has been changed from 'Stab' to 'Crush', since godswords have no stab-attack bonus
  • Godswords will now pop up a confirmation box when you try to dismantle them
