The Golden Saradomin godsword is a limited edition variant of the Saradomin 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.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

Healing Blade, the special attack of the Saradomin godsword.

The Golden Saradomin godsword has a special attack, Healing Blade, which deals 175% weapon damage (though testing results show the special does up to 270% damage), and restores life points by half of the damage dealt and prayer points by 2.5% of it. The special is found under the Constitution abilities. The special has no cooldown and can be used as long as you have 50% adrenaline (or 50% special attack energy on legacy mode), making it essentially an infinite source of health and prayer points.

Passive[edit | edit source]

The Golden Saradomin godsword (passive) is made by using the godsword on the altar in Commander Zilyana's room in the God Wars Dungeon, requiring 70 Agility. This makes it lose its special attack, but gives it a passive effect that has a 25% chance of activating upon a successful hit, healing 3% of your maximum life points and recovering 3% of your maximum prayer points with each successful hit.

The special attack is more useful for emergency heal situations and can heal a lot of life points instantly, especially if used under damage boosting abilities such as Berserk. The passive effect heals more consistently and has a comparable restoration of life points but a substantially better restoration of prayer points. However, for players with access to higher-tier weaponry (such as drygore weaponry) who do not wish to use a level 75 weapon (which is required in order to benefit from the passive effect), the special attack is preferable.
