Farseer kiteshield detail.png

A farseer kiteshield is a magic shield that requires a Defence level of 80 and a Dungeoneering level of 80 to wield. It is a companion to the chaotic kiteshield and eagle-eye kiteshield, the melee- and ranged-based equivalents, respectively. At least two million Dungeoneering experience is required to attain the 200,000 Dungeoneering tokens needed to purchase the item, provided that no tokens are earned from Sinkholes or from Treasure Hunter.

Degradation and repair[edit | edit source]

The farseer kiteshield has 30,000 charges of combat (a minimum time of 5 hours). Once the charges run out, it will break and become unusable until repaired by the rewards trader at Daemonheim. When first purchased, it will have a 20% charge. Repairs are made incrementally in 1% portions, and the cost of recharging can be paid in two ways: coins, or a combination of coins and Dungeoneering tokens.

All repair costs are reduced by 5% if Daemonheim aura 3 has been earned.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The farseer kiteshield used to cost 400,000 tokens before the 21 April 2010 update.
  • The farseer kiteshield looks similar to a gorgonite kiteshield, although the gorgonite kiteshield is a melee-based shield.
  • In the RuneScape Knowledge Base, it stated that the Farseer kiteshield soaked 10% magic damage and 20% melee damage. On 11 September 2010 Mod Ash confirmed the kiteshield in fact soaked 7% magic damage and 14% melee damage. With the Evolution of Combat update, this effect was removed.
