An ethereal shield with a spectral sigil attached to it.
Spectral spirit shield detail

The spectral spirit shield is a shield which requires 75 Defence, 70 Prayer and 65 Magic to wield. The shield is made by attaching a Spectral sigil, a rare drop from the Corporeal Beast, to a blessed spirit shield. This process requires 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. Players without the required skill levels to create the shield may ask Abbot Langley in the Edgeville Monastery to combine the sigil and the blessed spirit shield, for a fee of 1,500,000 coins. It has the highest Magic defense bonus of any shield in the game.

This shield's melee and ranged defensive bonuses are identical to the blessed spirit shield, but it has a significantly higher magic defence bonus of +30. The spectral spirit shield's counterpart, the arcane spirit shield, instead provides a magic attack bonus of +20.

Passive effectEdit

The spectral spirit shield reduces the effectiveness of all Prayer draining attacks by 50%. This effect does not work against other players. When worn against Spinolyps, 50% of Prayer is drained on average.[1]


  • It is the spirit shield which most closely resembles its Runescape 2 appearance, its added handle being the only change in shape compared to its original model.


  1. Jagex. Mod Ash's Twitter account. 16 February 2017. Mod Ash: "[Does the spectral buff include the 1 pray drain from spinolyps?] It does, but it randomly rounds up and down so that on average you get about 50% the drain from before."
