The Golden Zamorak godsword is a limited edition variant of the Zamorak 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 on death in the Wilderness, the item will turn into a Zamorak godsword instead.

Special Attack[edit | edit source]

Ice Cleave, the special attack of the Zamorak godsword.

The golden Zamorak godsword has a special attack called Ice Cleave, which deals up to 270% auto-attack damage and binds the target for 10 seconds. It uses 60% adrenaline.

Passive[edit | edit source]

The Golden Zamorak godsword (passive) is made by using the godsword on the altar in K'ril Tsutsaroth's room in the God Wars Dungeon, requiring 70 Constitution. This makes it lose its special attack, but gives it a passive effect that has a 25% chance of activating upon a successful hit, freezing your target for 6 seconds.

The passive is perhaps more useful when trying to keep an enemy frozen for as much time as possible, for example when countering rangers who farcast using the Binding shot ability. The special is more useful when the bind need to be at an exact time and/or coupled with a strong hit, such as preventing a flag carrier from running away in Castle Wars or someone from running away in the wilderness. A freeze for melee is more useful than it sounds, because when a melee user chases after a running enemy, the melee user cannot even use any abilities, as the game would simply say the target is too far away even when the target is close enough to be autoattacked.
