Rune kiteshield detail

A rune kiteshield provides medium Defence bonuses and is wielded in the off-hand slot. To wield this item, a player must have at least 50 Defence.

Rune kiteshields can be painted with a banner or shield easel at the workshop of any Player-owned house to convert them into a "player-made" Heraldic kiteshield, changing the shield's appearance to the chosen family crest of the player, provided the player has level 43 Crafting.

Crest kiteshields

Steel kiteshield (Arrav) equipped

A player with an Arrav crest shield

Crest kiteshields (see Sir Renitee for more information) can be obtained by painting a normal rune kiteshield on a Shield easel in a Player-owned house. All the different variations of shields have the same bonuses as a normal rune kiteshield. Constructing a Shield easel requires 41 Construction. If you do not have a Shield easel, you may use another player's.

Note that painting the crest on the kiteshields turns them into members-only items, and untradeable. You can also make a crest shield using a steel kiteshield, and they look identical, however they have different bonuses. There are a total of 16 shields to choose from.

You cannot remove a crest or paint over it once it has been applied.
