Auspicious Katana detail.png

An auspicious katana is a weapon originally obtained as a very rare Treasure Hunter prize. It requires Attack level 75 to wield. Its stats are identical to those of a godsword, but the auspicious katana has no passive effect or prayer bonus and weighs less (3.6 kg versus a godswords' 10 kg). It has since been acquirable from the use of rare item tokens, Vic's Store, the Blast from the Past Treasure Hunter promotion, and the Parcels from the Hedge event.

This katana, the ornate katana, the golden katana, the Eastern outfit, the quick-fire crossbow, and the Wushanko outfit were the only known items to have come from the Eastern Lands until the release of player-owned ports.

It has the same value as the Saradomin godsword. If it is lost or destroyed, it will cost 250,000 coins to retrieve from Diango or Ianto.

Update history[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There was an increased chance to win the Auspicious Katana on 1 March 2014 as part of the "Blast from the Past" Treasure Hunter promotion.
  • Wielding the katana currently results in an animation glitch. While the weapon is equipped, the player's walking animation uses Legacy Mode animations, even when in EoC mode. As of November 2018, this graphical issue has yet to be corrected.
  • Killing a player who has this in the Wilderness doesn't leave anything on the ground.
  • Before an update, you would lose the katana on death in the Wilderness or any other dangerous activity regardless of having Protect Item on.
