The steel defender is the third weakest defender. It is similar to a dagger, but held in the off-hand in place of a shield. It requires 5 Attack and 5 Defence to wield. The steel defender is dropped by Cyclopes on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild, but only once you have obtained an Iron defender.

If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 2,500 coins by using the item on Perdu.
