Magic shieldbow detail.png

The magic shieldbow is the second strongest shieldbow that can be fletched. The magic shieldbow requires a Defence level of 50 and Ranged level of 50 or higher to wield. It has the same stats and uses as the Magic composite bow, but requires 50 defence.

Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably. Therefore, it provides armour and life point bonuses, and counts as a shield for Defence abilities, such as Rejuvenate. It has an attack range of 8.

With level 45 Dungeoneering and 10,000 tokens, a shieldbow sight can be purchased and attached to create a magic shieldbow (sighted), raising its bonuses to those of a level 55 weapon, but it loses the special attack. This also increases the wielding requirements to 55 Ranged and Defence.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The magic shieldbow was originally a members-only weapon, but it was made available to free players after the Evolution of Combat.
  • Though the shield appears in the front of the bow when the player is wielding it, the shield will turn to the side when it is on the player's back.
  • The shieldbow is the equivalent to a longbow, now discontinued outside of Daemonheim.
