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.

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house or on a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
