Spectral spirit shield detail.png

The spectral spirit shield is a shield which requires 75 Defence, 70 Prayer and 65 Magic to wield.

It is made by attaching a spectral sigil, a rare drop from the Corporeal Beast, to a blessed spirit shield using a hammer at an anvil; this process requires 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. Players without the required skill levels to create the shield may ask Abbot Langley in the Edgeville Monastery to combine the sigil and the blessed spirit shield, for a fee of 1,500,000 coins.

The shield's melee and ranged defensive bonuses are identical to the blessed spirit shield, but has a magic defence bonus of +30, the highest of any shield in the game. Its counterpart, the arcane spirit shield, instead provides a magic attack bonus of +20. The spectral spirit shield also has a unique passive effect.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

The spectral spirit shield reduces the effectiveness of all Prayer draining attacks (outside of PvP encounters) by 50%. This effect excludes the corruption status effect.

Some examples:

  • Summoned Souls during the Cerberus fight will only drain 15 Prayer points when the shield is equipped instead of 30.
  • The prayer drain on successful attacks at Nex are halved.
  • When worn against spinolyps' magic attack and the Kalphite Queen's ranged attack, one point of prayer is drained 50% of the time on average.[1]

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
14 June 2018

The spectral spirit shield, along with the others, was made slightly clearer in-game. Female characters also now have their own unique model, reducing the distance between the shields and their bodies.

16 February 2017
(update | poll)

The special effect was expanded to all prayer draining attacks instead of only working against Summoned Souls.
