Malevolent kiteshield detail.png

The malevolent kiteshield is a level 90 Melee shield obtainable as a reward from Barrows - Rise of the Six reward chest. It is the most powerful melee shield available outside of Daemonheim.

This shield, including the Vengeful and Merciless versions, have the ability to use the Defence ability, Provoke, while having the shield equipped and right-clicking and casting provoke. However, this does not queue the ability if another ability is being used while trying to cast it.

The shield will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so it has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 1,500,000 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).
