Dark Shard of Leng detail.png

The Dark Shard of Leng is a main hand melee weapon that requires level 95 Attack to wield, and is the strongest one-handed melee weapon in the game outside of Daemonheim. It can be augmented with an augmentor to create the augmented Dark Shard of Leng.

The weapon is created by upgrading the Dark ice shard, manufactured using items dropped by the Arch-Glacor, with a Frozen Core of Leng.

The Dark Shard of Leng degrades to broken over 60,000 charges of combat. It can be repaired by a Repair NPC for 3,200,000 coins, or for cheaper at an armour stand.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The Dark Shard of Leng's special attack, Icy Tempest

The shard has a special attack called Icy Tempest, which costs 20% adrenaline and has a 60 second cooldown between uses, lasting for 30 seconds.

When used, the player's damage cap is increased by 30% for 30 seconds, applying for melee, magic, ranged, reflect and dominion mine damage. However, the special only persists as long as the shard is kept wielded - removing it automatically removes the effect, essentially limiting it to melee only.

Due to the nature of this special, using it is only recommended when the player will frequently hit the damage cap. As the damage cap for non-critical hits is 10,000 and critical 12,000, it is intended to be used while under the effects of Berserk or at places with high damage buffs as abilities under them tend to hit the damage cap frequently.

Set bonus[edit | edit source]

When the player dual wields a combination of the Dark ice shard or Dark Shard of Leng and the Dark ice sliver or Dark Sliver of Leng, there is no longer a shared cooldown between the Hurricane and Destroy abilities. Because the weapons' passive effect enables the use of Hurricane while dual-wielding, Hurricane and Destroy can be used consecutively in either order.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The Dark Shard of Leng at most, costs 3,200,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 800,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

With an NPC[edit source]

These less preferred methods cost more as they do not consider one's Smithing level for a repair discount.

Alternate methods[edit source]

These preferred methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

Dyed[edit | edit source]

The Dark Shard of Leng can be recoloured with dyes from Treasure Trails for purely cosmetic purposes. A warning message is given when attempting to dye a plain Dark Shard of Leng.

Once the dye is applied, the Dark Shard of Leng becomes permanently untradable.
