The Falador shield 3, also called the Tower shield, is a reward for completing the easy, medium and Hard Falador achievements. Players may obtain the shield from the Squire Asrol in the White Knights' Castle. If you have lost the shield, speaking to the squire will allow you to obtain a new one. It is one of the items that are always kept on (normal) death, although it can be lost in the Wilderness if it is not among the 'Items kept on death'

The shield has the defensive stats of a level 50 hybrid shield, but also gives a +5 prayer bonus.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you use the emote and quickly do a regular emote, you will do the normal emote while the icon still floats there.
  • Despite having the symbol of Saradomin on them, none of the Falador Shields offer protection from Saradomin's forces in the God Wars Dungeon.
  • The shield used to allow the player to enter the Crafting Guild without a Brown Apron. Since this requirement was removed, the reward was replaced by the ability to use the bank deposit box at the guild instead.
