Saradomin sword detail.png

The Saradomin sword is a two-handed sword which can be obtained in the God Wars Dungeon - the sword is a possible drop from Commander Zilyana and her bodyguards in the Saradomin area. This is the same sword that Zilyana wields.

As a level 75 attack two-handed melee weapon, it is comparable to the Zamorakian spear and the godswords, all of which are also two-handed and require 75 Attack. The Saradomin sword is valued as a mid-level crush weapon. Additionally, its speed is faster than most two-handed weapons at a rate of 3.0 seconds, which is the same speed as longswords, rapiers, and shortbows.

When received with CoinShare active, the Saradomin sword will be dropped as 120 Saradomin sword shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

  • This can be used as one of six Saradomin items to obtain the holy cithara in the reliquary after the quest One Piercing Note.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, this weapon required 70 attack to wield, and it was primarily a slash weapon. In addition, it had a 2.4 attack speed, the speed of a scimitar or abyssal whip, the latter of which shared its stats, save for crush and prayer bonuses. After the Evolution of Combat, its speed was decreased to 3.6, the same as the Godswords, before being increased to 3.0.
