Noxious staff (shadow) detail.png

The shadow-dyed noxious staff is made by dyeing a noxious staff with Shadow dye. This process is irreversible, and the dyed version is untradeable. It has the same combat bonuses, special attack, and degradation/repair mechanics as the regular noxious staff: it will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 per hit, giving a minimum time of 5 hours of combat) but can be repaired at Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand.

Making a shadow-dyed noxious staff costs 1,236,919,061 coins.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The Noxious staff (shadow) at most, costs 4,500,000 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 1,125,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

With an NPC[edit source]

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

Alternate methods[edit source]

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

Special Attack[edit | edit source]

A player performing the Mirrorback special attack.

The Noxious staff has a special attack named Mirrorback, which requires full adrenaline and will summon a mirrorback spider to aid the player. While active, the spider will reduce damage from attacks against the player by 50%, and reflect that damage to the attacker, but the spider will also be damaged for an equal amount. For instance, if the player is hit by an attack that deals 1000 damage, both the player and the spider take 500 damage, and the attacker receives 500 points of deflection damage. This will last for ten seconds or until the spider is killed. This special attack does not deflect damage from certain attacks, and also cannot deflect damage back to attackers that are immune to deflection damage, such as the Queen Black Dragon.
