Dark Shard of Leng (shadow) detail.png

The Dark Shard of Leng (shadow) 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 created by using a shadow dye on the Dark Shard of Leng.

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

When wielded with a Dark ice sliver or Dark Sliver of Leng, Hurricane and Destroy no longer share a cooldown.

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, reflect, and dominion mine damage as long as melee is the primary combat style being used by the player.

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 and critical hits is 10,000 and 12,000 respectively, the special attack 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 (shadow) 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).
