Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On 28 July 2009, the Animation Pack 1 update changed the appearance and attack animations of the rune longsword to what it currently is today, along with the godswords, rune and dragon scimitars, the dragon longsword and the abyssal whip.
    • On 23 July 2009, five days before the scheduled update, the rune longsword image in the Grand Exchange database was replaced by the new model. Players found the image and posted about it in the RuneScape Forums, making it widely known before Jagex removed the image a few hours later. Five days later the image was once again put up along with the official release.
  • Like most other swords, on 12 April 2011, the rune longsword received an update changing its grip when held by a player.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat the rune longsword was widely considered to be the second-best non-degrading non-members weapon, surpassed only by the rune scimitar. However, this belief was controversial because many players considered the rune sword (rune shortsword), which has the same attack speed as the scimitar, to be superior.
