The inactive Sacred clay shield is the degraded form of the Sacred clay shield and provides no stat bonuses, requiring 200 Stealing Creation points to be recharged into a Sacred clay shield with stats, and as with the magic, melee and ranged shields requires a Defence level of 65 to equip. As an alternative to recharging, one could purchase a new Sacred clay shield for the same cost. The inactive Sacred clay shield cannot transform until it is recharged. After the Evolution of Combat update this shield appears to be unobtainable as the 3 main shields don't degrade.
The price of 200 Stealing Creation points roughly requires 2 hours in non-combat Stealing Creation games to obtain, or around 3.3 hours in ordinary Stealing Creation games.
