Rune scimitar detail

The rune scimitar is the second strongest scimitar available, behind only the Dragon scimitar. Like all rune weapons, it requires 40 Attack to wield.

Players can make a rune scimitar with the smithing skill at level 90 using 2 rune bars, giving the player 150 smithing experience. It also can be dropped by various monsters such as fire giants or mummies.

Rune scimitars are the preferred weapon for F2P players as the speed and strength bonus is arguably the best available.

An alternative to the Rune scimitar is the Rapier for those who are able to complete Cabin Fever. The Rapier has identical stats, with the slash and stab bonuses switched. The Rapier is more useful for dragon killing and may be useful to some Ironmen who are struggling to acquire a Rune scimitar but have the moderate requirements to complete Cabin Fever instead.

Trivia Edit

  • The rune scimitar matches the Adamant 2h sword's strength bonus, and is much faster, whilst having a marginally higher slash bonus.
