Pictures[edit source]

Please, for the love of all that is holy, someone, take a better picture! A stat screen shot is not needed, although we could do with one for the ghostly robes page, if we hae one. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 22:34, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Brief Guide[edit source]

(Needs confirmation)

Walkthrough[edit source]

  • Go to the ghost near Relekka's House Portal.
  • Talk to Ghost and then return to Seers. Talk to Sin Seer in the Spinning Wheel house in Seers Village. Bribe her with 40 coins and then return to the ghost again.
  • Go find the four scouts at the locations he mentions. Wear a ring of visibility to see them, a ghostspeak amulet to talk to them and Ghostly robes for them to recognize you as a messenger for General Khazard. The scouts are on the move constantly, so look around in the area given below.
  1. The Jungle scout is near the Tai bwo wannai village. Go to the special tree patch with mahogany and teak trees, and search just a bit to the south-east of there. (The jungle south-east of the start of the Jungle Potion quest.)
  2. The gnomes Gnome scout is circling around the apple orchard to the south-east of gnome stronghold. It could be right by the entrance, but he may be else where near the orchard.
  3. Knight scout. This scout is a little east of Falador, between the Falador east wall and the Draynor Manor west fence.
  4. The Desert scout is a little south of the Shantay Pass. Go through the pass, and search the area around the rock formation just to the south of the pass.
  • For the final boss go to the Goblin Infested Cave right by Fishing guild. The cave is known from Dwarf Cannon and One Small Favour

Reward[edit source]

The reward for the completion of this hidden update consists of a Shadow sword.

Added some tidbits and weapon stats --Miw 10:33, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
For the Ghostly robes, there were 3 different options (paths and ghost) which a player is randomly assigned. Might be the same for this ghostly item as well? Chrislee33 01:04, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
After checking 4 fansites, it's the same 4 locations - the jungle site can be between the Tai Bwo Wannai rare trees to the mines to the south east and north outside of Shilo Village. Chrislee33 03:56, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Coverage on wiki[edit source]

Shadow Sword is both a miniquest and an item. Temporary versions are on the talk page. There should be two pages: one for miniquest and one for the item description. --Miw 10:39, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Shadow Sword miniquest and Shadow Sword should be the names. Since I don't even have ghostly robes I'm not gonna try. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:41, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Shadow Sword RS forum thread[edit source]

Trivia reference: Here are the RS forum threads documenting date of release and discoverer of shadow sword on RS forum. Chrislee33 08:42, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

uh uh[edit source]

I found general khazard walking around the falador south mine area ages b4 12th feb, I wear visibility ring all over rs hoping to find something like a hidden room, i found the guy at the end of january (28th 9:31 am) and got the sword from the hound on my second attempt, after teleing and coming bak, (didnt no it was a trap).

I have a log of stuff i find and that was my first addition, i told another 6 pplz since i found it up till 12th feb, so no its definately older than that date, maybe even older than when i found it.

Uh huh. Got any proof? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:45, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

fraid not, i thought it was well known at the time, else i would have taken a snap, u can ask one of my m8s i spose, idk, dont spose i can just have to act on faith, i have no real hard evidence tho i did tell my m8s at the time

haven't seen anything on any of the forums about earlier sightings.....Chrislee33 10:25, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

i didnt post

If you've got no proof, then there's no reason to add it. Besides, I haven't done it, but it sounds like your start location was completely diferent from everyone else's. Why would that be? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 12:15, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

i withdraw this then cos i did not take an s shot :-( but i found this ages b4 the other guy u can still ask the friends i told, and i was coming bak from hunting snowy knights at the time

Quick question[edit source]

I just beat Fight arena without killing General K. Can I still get the sword? Rodtheanimegod4ever 00:38, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Uhh... how? ChristineTalk 00:39, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
You can leave the arena after killing Bouncer. Rodtheanimegod4ever 00:57, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

I personally think that as long as you can find him near Relleka, you can do it. or else, you go into tha arena and see what's special, maybe you can beat him now? By: KingBlackChicken

Shouldn't this be split into 2 pages?[edit source]

called something like "Shadow Sword (weapon)" and "Shadow Sword (miniquest)" maybe? Caz3103 16:55, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Yep, i will do it in a second. I think that the miniquest should take priority over the sword [[File:]] User talk Evil Yanks Contribs [[File:]] 10:35, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Delete the 'Move' notice?[edit source]

Shouldn't this notice be deleted? It makes sense to have a separate article for players looking for information just about the sword itself. It is in line with the granularity of articles policy for this wiki, too. Inelcirc 16:31, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Away darn spot[edit source]

Does this article seriously need to have a language warning because of the line "Away, darn spot"?? I hear ten times worse then that all the time in runescape because people are inventive with the words "Ass" and "Crap" The line is a variation on a quote from Macbeth (sp?) by the legendary William Shakespeare and is used to honour him then insult someone.. I really don't see how anyone can find it offensive after the (horrible) censor updates. [[File:]] User talk Evil Yanks Contribs [[File:]] 08:02, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

...if that's the reason that the offensive language notice is at the top (and I couldn't find anything else that might warrant its placement), I'm going to pull it. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 04:07, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Keep the two articles seperate.[edit source]

Keep the Shadow sword weapon and miniquest articles as they are. I'd rather the two things be seperate, seeing as they are two different things, a miniquest and an item. Otherwise if you have them in the same article, it's just pure laziness in my opinion.Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 20:15, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Was anyone thinking they they should be joined again?? [[File:]] User talk Evil Yanks Contribs [[File:]] 04:49, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

ROTM[edit source]

Has anyone tried completing this miniquest after having already done Ritual of the Mahjarrat? I remember back when I did it, most of the dialogue centered around Khazard wanting to get ready for the "upcoming" ritual. But since The General's Shadow is not a requirement for doing ROTM it's possible that some players could do ROTM first and then this miniquest. Does that lead to significant changes in the dialogue and/or plotline of this miniquest?

Difficulty[edit source]

Looking for opinions on what to put as the official difficulty as for this.Completionist cape.png Angel of Law Talk Law rune.png 00:16, April 19, 2018 (UTC)

Unfortunately, miniquests do not have an official difficulty, perhaps that part of the template/table should be hidden for miniquests. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:54, April 19, 2018 (UTC)
