Sunspear (melee) detail.png

The Sunspear (magic) is a degradable level 78 staff made during the quest River of Blood. It acts as a Sunspear against vampyres and as Wolfbane against the werewolves in Canifis. At any point it can be switched to a two-handed javelin or spear version using the Switch-style right-click option, retaining all current charges.

During River of Blood, it is made by combining a blisterwood shaft, wolfbane, and the broken Sunspear, requiring 75 Fletching. It can only be created once, but can be reclaimed (with full charge) from Ivan Strom for 600,000 coins. It can also be augmented using an augmentor, and retains the ability to switch styles.

Sunspear degrades to a broken state after 15,000 charges of combat. It can be repaired by a Repair NPC for 600,000 coins, or on an armour stand for less.

It is statistically identical to Zuriel's staff, though it does not have a special attack.

Completing the quest also unlocks this weapon as a cosmetic override.

Sunspear benefits

Sunspear, like blisterwood weapons, is fully effective against all vampyres, vyrewatch, and vyrelords/ladies; when fighting them, it has the following benefits:

  • Able to damage them
  • Prevent juvinates in Darkmeyer (but not elsewhere) from transforming into dust and escaping
  • +50% hit chance
  • Chance to deal up to double the normal damage for that attack (including bleeds like Dismember)
  • Automatically cremates vyre corpses, granting 280 Prayer and 200 Firemaking experience (+50% with Morytania achievements complete), with a 20% chance of dropping additional loot (similar to Shiny columbarium key loot; increased chance with columbarium ring)
    • Cremations this way do not count towards the total cremations

See Category:Susceptible to blisterwood weapons for a full list of affected monsters.

Repair[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Sunspear (magic) when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 600,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
