A scary broodoo shield.

The broodoo shield is a special member's only shield. It can be created with 35 Crafting by using a hammer on a tribal mask with two snakeskins and eight nails in your inventory, granting 100 Crafting experience. The colour of the tribal mask from which it was made determines the colour of the shield. A broodoo shield requires 25 Defence and 25 Magic to wear, and it is notable for being one of the few shields with a magic attack bonus.

Broodoo shields have a passive effect when used in combat, similar to the black mask; it has a 10% chance of draining an opponent's Combat stat by 1, and then 5% of their remaining total. The chance for the ability to occur happens whenever an enemy attacks the player adjacently. The enemy must still have over half of its hitpoints and its skills must be at the base levels for them to be affected. A unique animation plays when the ability occurs, where the player will be holding up their shield and the shield emitting a glow.

The colour of the shield determines which skill it drains:

The number following the name of the broodoo shield represents the number of charges left on the shield, starting at 10. Every time the special attack is used, this amount will decrease by one. There is no way to recharge the shield after the charges have been depleted, and it does not affect the shield or its defensive bonuses once they are all used.
