Spectral spirit shield detail.png

The spectral spirit shield is made by attaching a Spectral sigil to a Blessed spirit shield. To do this, players need 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. In addition, players must have completed Summer's End to make or wear the spectral spirit shield. Alternatively, Brother Bordiss can be asked to attach it for 1,500,000 coins after completing Perils of Ice Mountain. To enter and kill the Corporeal Beast for any sigil drops, Summer's End must be completed.

The spectral spirit shield requires 75 Defence and 75 Prayer to wield. Attempting to put the shield in a keepsake key without completion of the quest results in the message, "You need to complete the quest: Summer's End"; no keepsake keys are wasted in the attempt to put the shield in the keepsake key if one has not completed the quest Summer's End.

Unlike the other three spirit shields, the Spectral spirit shield does not offer any hidden damage reduction. However, the shield does provide a Life Bonus, which the other shields do not have.

History[edit | edit source]

Both the Grand Exchange and "street" prices of the Spectral Spirit Shield have been known to fluctuate. At the time of its release, the price of the Spectral Spirit Shield stabilised in the 40-50 million coins range and was known to be the least expensive of the 'enhanced' spirit shields. Due to the Corporeal Beast's stomp attack update on 15 October 2008, its price steadily rose to more than 150 million coins, after which it started to drop again. Since then the price has fallen down to 3,591,016 coins.

Comparison[edit | edit source]

The Spectral spirit shield has the same defensive bonuses as the other spirit shields. It is the best non-degradable and third-highest Armour and Life Bonus of any shield. It also has the highest Prayer bonus of any defensive shields of such capability. Unlike other spirit shields, Spectral does not drain prayer points or reduce incoming damage, but instead has a life point bonus. When compared with other spirit shields, Spectral is best used if the player wishes to reserve prayer points for sustainability or a cheap alternative. This in mind, the Spectral spirit shield's type is Magic which makes it less useful if wanting to melee or range with it instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On 1 February 2010, the spirit shields appearances were changed to match their inventory pictures, which were updated on 11 January. The Spectral spirit shield's colour was changed into a vibrant indigo from a pale bluish purple. Previously the Elysian spirit shield and Spectral spirit shield were close to same shade of blue.
