The Falador shield 4 is a reward for completing all of the Falador achievements, including the Elite tasks. It is obtained from Squire Asrol in the White Knights' Castle in Falador, and can be reobtained from him for free. It is one of the items that is always kept on (normal) death, although it can be lost in the Wilderness if not protected.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The shield used to be able to locate the Giant mole in its lair. Due to the Giant Mole rework, this was rendered obsolete. The locate ability was removed on 27 January 2014 and replaced by the bonuses in the Artisans' Workshop and the Anti-dragon shield (mole)'s damage reduction.
  • The prayer renewal ability used to be difficult to use during combat due to a confirmation box. This was removed on 27 January 2014.
  • Before the Mining and Smithing rework on 7 January 2019, the Falador shield 4 also increased Smithing experience gained from activities inside the Artisans' Workshop by 5%. This experience boost was removed because the Artisans' Workshop became a hub for all Smithing training after the rework.
