Obsidian shard detail.png

Obsidian shards are items dropped by the TokHaar monsters within the Fight Cauldron, which is accessible after completion of The Brink of Extinction. The shards are rewarded after leaving the Cauldron, in an amount based on your performance.

With 80 Smithing, players may smelt obsidian shards into obsidian bars at any furnace; 12 shards are needed to produce 1 bar. This grants 50 Smithing experience per bar. The bars may then be used at an anvil to smith obsidian armour, powerful high-level armour that is exceptionally useful against TzHaar and TokHaar monsters.

The shards can also be used to repair any obsidian armour the player has equipped, at a rate of 100 charges per shard.

A large number of obsidian shards (equal to the current Runedate divided by 10) is also needed in order to find TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot, which is one of the requirements for obtaining the Master quest cape.

With Tier 90 Mage weapons, you can expect to get around 500 shards per hour on average.

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 2 March 2015 (Update):
    • Using an obsidian shard on undamaged obsidian armour will now only display one message.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 228 obsidian shards, or 19 bars worth, are needed to produce a full set of obsidian armour, an obsidian shield and all three helmets. (Or 264 shards, equalling 22 bars if, for some reason, you want to make both the platelegs and plateskirt.)
