The corrupt dragon longsword was released on 15 October 2008 along with the PvP worlds. It is the strongest longsword available to Free-to-play, but it crumbles to dust after 30 minutes of wielding. It requires 60 Attack to wield.
Players can obtain this item either by trading with another player, or by receiving it as a very rare drop from killing Revenants or the Chaos Elemental.
When a player is killed with a newly degraded version of this weapon, roughly half of the Grand Exchange market price is dropped instead of the longsword. It's a good method to get a partial refund of the weapon's price as you cannot trade the degraded version.
The corrupt dragon longsword does not require completion of the Lost City quest to wield.
Warning: Once you wield this item for longer than a few seconds, it will have the word (deg) added to its name and it becomes permanently untradeable until it vanishes. Using this item in combat adds the (deg) to its name almost instantly, also rendering it untradeable.
The corrupt dragon longsword is the least expensive corrupt dragon weapon.
- As 30 minutes contains 3000 ticks, you are able to perform at most 600 auto-attacks with this longsword before it crumbles into dust. Thus, each auto-attack landed using this longsword costs a minimum of approximately 94 coins.
