Aten (Heru's shield) detail.png

Aten is a shield that Heru wields during the quest Diamond in the Rough. It can be obtained by slicing open dung kalphites after finishing the quest. Only one can be obtained. If a player receives one from dung kalphites but does not pick it up, another may appear. However, if a player tries to pick up the second one, it will disappear, resulting in the message You already have one of these; this one must have been a mirage.

Since 5 June 2017, Aten can also be worn as a cosmetic override which is unlocked when picking up Aten.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Aten is the disk of the sun in Ancient Egyptian mythology, which fits the way Heru uses the shield in the quest to reflect the sun's ray and blind the player, Ozan and Leela.
