Orb of the Cywir elders detail.png

The Orb of the Cywir elders is a degradable orb that requires level 85 Magic to use. It has the accuracy of a tier 90 off-hand weapon, but the damage cap for spells of a tier 80 off-hand weapon. It is exclusively dropped by Helwyr.

The orb will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (a minimum duration of 10 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 1,250,000 coins.

If fighting Helwyr with CoinShare active, the orb will be dropped as 120 Orb of the cywir elders shards, divided equally among the players killing him. Combining 120 shards will make the orb.

Repair cost

The base repair cost of the Orb of the Cywir elders when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 1,250,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
