Enhanced Excalibur detail.png

The Enhanced Excalibur is an upgraded version of Excalibur that may be obtained upon completion of the hard Seers' Village achievements. The player may speak to the Lady of the Lake and she will enhance the player's Excalibur.

Enhanced Excalibur has tier 72 damage and tier 70 accuracy, and is the closest equivalent to an off-hand abyssal whip; it is the second best non-degradable off-hand for melee (after Jessika's sword) and a large step up from dragon off-hands. It is also known for its healing ability which can be activated by right clicking it while it is in your inventory or equipped. This effect is doubled upon completion of the elite Seers' Village achievements. This ability has a recharge of 5 minutes. This cooldown is shared with Rejuvenate, Guthix's blessing and Ice Asylum.

If the item is lost, a replacement can be retrieved from the Lady of the Lake in Taverley for 500 coins.

Due to the cheap cost of replacing, this weapon can be a good choice for augmenting and dismantling for Invention experience.

Multiple Enhanced Excaliburs may be obtained. If a player possesses multiple Excaliburs and takes them to the Lady of the Lake to be enhanced after completion of the hard Seers' Village achievements, they will all be upgraded. Similarly, a player may buy a new Excalibur if they lose or destroy it and choose between having the original or enhanced version (note that the player must not have an enhanced version to buy another Excalibur). By choosing originals, dropping them to buy the desired amount and picking them all up, a player can talk to the Lady of the Lake and have all Excaliburs enhanced in one go.

Special effect[edit | edit source]

A player activates the special effect of Enhanced Excalibur
Version Life points healed Reward from
Excalibur.png Standard None Merlin's Crystal quest
Enhanced Excalibur.png Enhanced 4% of max life points 5 times over a period of 20 seconds, resulting in a total of 20% of max life points healed. Seers' Village hard achievements
Enhanced Excalibur.png Elite enhanced 4% of max life points 10 times over a period of 40 seconds, resulting in a total of 40% of max life points heal. Seers' Village elite achievements

By activating the Enhanced Excalibur, the player is healed for 4% of their maximum life points (396 at level 99) every 4 seconds for 20 seconds, or for 40 seconds if the elite Seers' Village achievements are completed. Defence also receives a 15% boost. The amount healed does increase if the player has effects that boosts their maximum life points, like a bonfire boost or the warmth from using the thermal spring in Oo'glog. This activation shares a 5 minute cooldown with Guthix's Blessing, Rejuvenate and Ice Asylum. This ability does not use adrenaline, not even the 10% drained by eating food while in combat, which makes it superior over the aforementioned abilities for healing only yourself. If the user changes worlds or logs out then back in again, they may use Enhanced Excalibur's special ability again in five seconds after switching worlds or logging in.

Equipping Excalibur is not required to activate its ability; one may simply right-click it from the inventory. Additionally, unequipping Excalibur will not end the healing effect early if it was activated while wielded.

Wearing Warpriest of Armadyl armour or Warpriest of Bandos armour may reduce the cooldown for this ability, for it is treated as though it is Rejuvenate.

Although teralith, tempest, or primeval armour can reset Rejuvenate's cooldown, they do not reset the Enhanced Excalibur's cooldown.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Between the release of the Evolution of Combat and that of Legacy mode, its special was instead turned into a passive effect that had a chance to heal 1% of your current life points for the enhanced version, or 2% for the elite version.
  • According to the actual legend, this sword could only be used to its full potential when wielded by King Arthur and was capable of killing even the dead.
  • Previously, Seers' headband 3 had to be equipped in order to get this item enhanced.
