Shadow glaive detail.png

The shadow glaive is a main hand, degradable Ranged weapon dropped by Gregorovic in Heart of Gielinor which requires level 85 Ranged to wield. It has the accuracy of a tier-90 weapon, but the damage of a tier-80 weapon. It does not require any ammunition to use, but is a one-piece thrown weapon similar to the Crystal chakram.

Once equipped, the glaive will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (a minimum duration of 10 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 2,500,000 coins, which becomes tradeable again after doing so.

If a player is killed in the Wilderness and this item is dropped, it will be in the broken state.

120 shadow glaive shards may be combined to create a shadow glaive.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

This item costs at most 2,500,000 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 625,000 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).
