Golden Bandos godsword can no longer be obtained in RuneScape after an update but still exists in-game for those who had done so.
For other variants of this item, see non-golden.

The golden Bandos godsword is a limited edition variant of the Bandos godsword won from Balthazar's Big Raffle. It is identical in function to the regular godsword, including the ability to swap its special attack for the passive effect.

If this item is not protected and is lost in the Wilderness, it will turn into a regular Bandos godsword instead.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

Warstrike, the special attack of the Bandos godsword.

The golden Bandos godsword has a special attack, Warstrike, which deals 25%-350% ability damage and drains the enemy's stats. Using this attack costs 100% adrenaline.

The enemy's Defence level is drained visibly according to the damage dealt, and their Defence rating is also drained like saps from the Ancient Curses. The Defence level drain appears to range from 0.5%-1% of the damage dealt (or 5%-10% of the damage dealt in Legacy), with lower damage draining closer to 1% (or 10% in Legacy). Successive use of the special attack will result in drains of diminishing returns to any stats already drained but also drains to other combat skills such as Attack, Ranged and Magic and even prayer points (about 400-500 prayer points from tests).

The golden Bandos godsword has no effect on a target's affinity.

Passive[edit | edit source]

The golden Bandos godsword (passive) is made by using the godsword on the altar in General Graardor's room in the God Wars Dungeon. This makes it lose its special attack, but gives it a passive effect that has a 25% chance of activating upon a successful hit: it decreases the target's level in Defence by 1 if they are above 90% of their Defence level.
