The shadow sword is a two-handed sword obtained as a reward from The General's Shadow. The sword matches the ghostly robes set and is translucent.
Prior to the Evolution of Combat, the Shadow sword had melee stats to match a black two-handed sword and additional Magic attack and Defence bonuses. Now, however, it is an extremely weak weapon whose damage is even less than that of a bronze dagger.
If it is lost, players should return to the room in the cave where they fought Bouncer. There will be a new, friendly ghost that is willing to return the sword. It is advised to bring a ghostspeak amulet (unless it is no longer necessary) otherwise they will not be able to talk to the ghost. Note that a ring of visibility is not required to reclaim the shadow sword. The ghost is not invisible. It can also be easily re-obtained at May's Quest Caravan after putting 150 quest points into the Hub Track.
