Wrong examine.(corrected)[edit source]

The examine text "Just a scratch!" was incorrect, I have corrected to "Grants a mystical shield."  Sal  21:11, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

Sometimes aegis creates a large shield infront of you and a white particle effect going from the floor, not sure when or how this triggers.

Price of Aegis[edit source]

There is talk in the trivia that Aegis is the most expensive item to buy in the Jagex RWT shop (oops Jagex Loyalty Programme shop). This is incorrect, Aegis' 84,000 might be the single biggest number, but all the Tier 4 items cost more than Aegis, since none of the (Supreme) Tier 4 auras can be purchased without first purchasing a lower Tier aura. It is only because Aegis does not have a pre-requisite lower-Tier aura to purchase that the 84,000 of Aegis appears to make it the most-expensive item to buy outright.

I have removed reference in the article to Aegis being the most expensive aura, please leave it that way. 99.253.240.230 23:44, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

I'm the one who removed the edit. I accidentally saved it without a summary, but it does say that it's the most expensive *single* item, and that is indeed true. I'll go edit the article at mention that, but your point is valid. Also, in the future, please sign comments left on Talk pages by simply typing four tildes (~~~~) after your comment.

I edited the Trivia section because there are no circumstances whatsoever where it could correctly be argued that Aegis is the most expensive item in the shop.

'Aegis is the single most expensive item to buy in the shop' is incorrect.

'Aegis is the single most expensive item to buy outright in the shop' is incorrect.

Any other variant of phrase stating Aegis is the most expensive item in the shop is incorrect.

To illustrate:

Loyalty shop opens 28 June 2011.

Player A: I'm going to maintain continuous membership. I'm not going to buy anything from the Loyalty Programme Shop until I have enough points to buy an aura with a red dot in each of the four corners.

Player B: Me too. I'm going to maintain continuous membership. I'm not going to buy anything from the Loyalty Programme Shop until I have enough points to buy an aura with a red dot in each of the four corners.

Player C: I'm going to maintain continuous membership... But refraining from making any purchases from the Loyalty Programme Shop until I have enough points to buy an aura with a red dot in each of the four corners, the way that A and B are? I'm not going to put that restriction on myself.

Player D: I'm going to maintain continuous membership... But just like C, I'm not going to self-restrict myself by refraining from making any purchases from the Loyalty Programme Shop until I have enough points to buy an aura with a red dot in each of the four corners.

Month 1:

A: purchases this month: none. ownership: 500 points

B: purchases this month: none. ownership: 500 points

C: purchases this month: none. ownership: 500 points

D: purchases this month: none. ownership: 500 points

...

Month 4:

A: purchases this month: none. ownership: 15500 points

B: purchases this month: none. ownership: 15500 points

C: purchases this month: Reverence. ownership: Reverence, 10500 points

D: purchases this month: Jack of Trades. ownership: Jack of Trades, 500 points

...

Month 5:

A: purchases this month: none. ownership: 23500 points

B: purchases this month: none. ownership: 23500 points

C: purchases this month: Greater reverence. ownership: Greater reverence, 2500 points. (Reverence disappears once Greater reverence is purchased)

D: purchases: none. ownership: Jack of Trades, 8500 points

...

Month 9:

A: purchases this month: none. ownership: 65500 points

B: purchases this month: none. ownership: 65500 points

C: purchases this month: Master reverence. ownership: Master reverence, 8000 points. (Greater Reverence disappears once Master Reverence is purchased)

D: purchases: none. ownership: Jack of Trades, 50500 points

...

Month 11:

A: purchases this month: Aegis. ownership: Aegis, 8500 points

B: purchases this month: none. ownership: 92500 points

C: purchases this month: none. ownership: Master reverence, 35000 points

D: purchases: none. ownership: Jack of Trades, 77500 points

...

Month 13:

A: purchases this month: none. ownership: Aegis, 38500 points

B: purchases this month: Reverence, Greater reverence, Master reverence, Supreme reverence.

ownership: Supreme reverence, 7500 points. (Reverence, Greater reverence, and Master reverence disappear when the next-level-tier is bought)

C: purchases this month: Supreme reverence. ownership: Supreme reverence, 7500 points. (Master reverence disappears when Supreme reverence is bought)

D: purchases: none. ownership: Jack of Trades, 107500 points

(1) Aegis is not the single most expensive item in the shop. Aegis is actually the lowest priced Tier 4 aura.

(2) Aegis is not the most expensive item to buy outright in the shop. Player A bought Aegis outright in Month #11, Player B bought Supreme reverence outright in Month #13. Player C did not buy Supreme reverence in 4 months (= Month #13 - Month #9). Player C bought Supreme reverence in 13 months, which is exactly how long it took B to buy it.

(...just an aside: C actually had greater benefit from the shop than did B, having been able to use Reverence in month #4, Greater reverence in month #5, 6, 7, 8, and Master reverence in month #9, 10, 11, 12)

(3) The Loyalty Programme shop shows all things that can be bought in a greatly misleading way. It says Supreme reverence costs 57500 points. But D has 107500 points (even more points than the sum of the '57500' for Supreme reverence plus the '36500' of Master reverence = 94000 points), but the store does not have Supreme reverence available to purchase for D. Therefore the only valid way of looking at Greater reverence is as Reverence traded/upgraded once to/by Xuan, Master reverence as Reverence traded/upgraded twice to/by Xuan, and Supreme reverence as Reverence traded/upgraded thrice to/by Xuan. And the only way to correctly evaluate the prices of the Auras would be: Reverence = 5000 points, Greater reverence = 21000 points, Master reverence = 57500 points, Supreme reverence = 115000 points. Looking at the incremental price as the 'cost' of an Aura, is incorrect.

There is not any valid mathematical argument that can be made where Aegis is the most expensive 'single' item in the shop, the most expensive item 'to buy outright', or any variant of that phrase. If there was any valid argument for Aegis being the most expensive single item, then I would have left that statement in the article. But since any statement alluding to Aegis having the highest price would be incorrect, I removed the phrase from the wiki. Any statement that Aegis is the most expensive item in any way is false. The only thing that Aegis has, is that 84000 is greater than 57500 - and nothing else.

I am going to try and check how much damage aegis can absorb at 99 defence and if boosting defence affects this, Will need some help though. Message me on wikia if you want to help thx in advance. Vosje 20:55, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

What is the maximum percentage of damage that Aegis can absorb?[edit source]

Wait a minute! Our wiki article used to say:

It is a shield that can block up to 10% damage, based on players' Defence levels... The absorption rate is also consistent with the player's level... For example, at 99 Defence, if the player incurs 50 damage, he or she will only be hit for 45 and 5 will be shown as absorbed.

But then 24.192.154.128 edited the wiki article to say:

It is a shield that can block up to 40% damage, based on players' Defence levels... The absorption rate is also consistent with the player's level... For example, at 99 Defence, if the player incurs 50 damage, he or she will only be hit for 45 and 5 will be shown as absorbed.

And now our wiki article contradicts itself: 40% damage - incurs 50 damage, 5 will be shown as absorbed (10%)

What is the maximum percentage damage that Aegis can absorb? Is it 10% or 40%?

Damage Asorption cap[edit source]

the article says that aegis will deactivate when the 30 min timer is out or when 'x' amount of damage is blocked. but what is that number or what influences it, defence level? LP?. I would like to know. but if you have absolutely no idea then its ok.Karil the Tainted official art.png Giggabyte181 Magic logs detail.png 22:38, June 4, 2012 (UTC)


I dont know the amount of damage that can be blocked but i know its quite alot, I have tanked up to 20 minutes at graardor (in duo) before it absorbed the max damage. Vosje 21:24, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

"The animation however, will only occasionally activate."

So it doesn't work for every hit you recieve, only a percentage of them? If you have the aura please confirm/deny this and then correct this sentance, as it is currently confusing.


The effect happens randomly when absorbing damage, From my experience it triggers about once every 20-30 absorbed hits. Vosje (talk) 14:38, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Aura Effect[edit source]

1) "The animation however, will only occasionally activate, but the effect of the aura will always work whilst active."

2) "The animation however, will only occasionally activate; there is a currently unknown chance of the aura absorbing whilst active."


Thanks in advance!
