Kalphite defender detail.png

The kalphite defender is the most powerful defender in the game, and requires level 90 Attack and 90 Defence to equip. It can be created by combining perfect chitin with a new or fully-repaired off-hand drygore mace, rapier, or longsword. Like all defenders, it allows the use of both dual-wielding and shield abilities, and provides a 3% accuracy boost. It also has a 1/15 chance to deflect a hit, reducing it by 50%-100% damage and providing +20% accuracy for the next attack.

All defenders have style and defence bonuses equal to that of half their tier, which means the Kalphite defender has a tier-45 attack and defence rating.

The defender will degrade to a broken state after 100,000 charges of combat. It can be fixed by Repair NPCs, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 1,500,000 coins. Upon death in the Wilderness, the defender is converted to 200,000 coins.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

This item costs at most 1,500,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 375,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

NPCs[edit source]

These methods cost more as they do not consider player's Smithing level for a repair discount.

Improved methods[edit source]

These methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).
