Augmented Sunspear (melee) detail.png

The augmented Sunspear (melee) is an item that can be made by attaching an augmentor to a Sunspear (melee). It retains the ability to switch styles after augmentation.

It acts as a Sunspear against vampyres and as wolfbane against the werewolves in Canifis.

Weapon gizmos charged with perks can be used to enhance the weapon's abilities. As a two-handed item, the sunspear can hold 2 gizmos, allowing up to 4 perks (2 on each).

Using this weapon in combat can gain experience to increase its level. Levelling the weapon will have no effect on its ability in combat, but it will improve the experience and materials gained for disassembling it.

The Augmented Sunspear (melee) uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.

Sunspear benefits[edit | edit source]

Sunspear, like blisterwood weapons, is fully effective against all vampyres, vyrewatch, and vyrelords/ladies; when fighting them, it has the following benefits:

  • Able to damage them
  • Prevent juvinates in Darkmeyer (but not elsewhere) from transforming into dust and escaping
  • +50% hit chance
  • Chance to deal up to double the normal damage for that attack (including bleeds like Dismember)
  • Every 50 vyre corpses cremated in the Columbarium grants +10 damage (a maximum of +100)
  • Automatically cremates vyre corpses, granting 280 Prayer and 200 Firemaking experience (+50% with Morytania achievements complete), with a 20% chance of dropping additional loot (similar to Shiny columbarium key loot; increased chance with columbarium ring)
    • Cremations this way do not count towards the total cremations
    • The sunspear does also benefit from burning vyre corpses, up to a max of 500. [1]

See Category:Susceptible to blisterwood weapons for a full list of affected monsters.

Increasing bonuses[edit | edit source]

For every 50 Vyre corpses cremated, the player obtains better equipment bonuses when using the Ivandis flail, blisterwood weapons and all variants of the sunspear. A message appears in the chat box "You feel more experienced with the Ivandis Flail." The current cremation count can be viewed either with the "Check" option on the flail when it is in the inventory or by searching the lectern at the south end of the columbarium.

The bonus to blisterwood weapons is accumulated even if The Branches of Darkmeyer quest has not been completed. If the quest is later completed, the blisterwood weapons receive the bonus immediately.

The bonus to the equipment stats is invisible and doesn't appear in the "Show Equipment Stats" panel. The bonus is only effective when used against Vampyre Juveniles, Vampyre Juvinates, and Vyrewatch. The sunspear reaches maximum power after 500 Vyre corpses have been cremated. This is a requirement for obtaining the trimmed completionist cape and master quest cape.
