A detailed image of the Arcane spirit shield.

The Arcane spirit shield was released on 15 September 2008 along with Summer's end. It requires 75 Defence, 70 Prayer and 65 Magic to wield. The shield is made by attaching an Arcane sigil to a Blessed spirit shield. To do this, players need 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. Smithing the shield gives 1,800 smithing exp. Alternatively, you can ask Brother Bordiss to attach it for 1,500,000 coins after completing Perils of Ice Mountain.

The shield gives slightly better defence bonuses than the Dragon square shield, and its Crush defence is slightly higher than that of the Dragonfire Shield. This shield also gives the best Magic offence bonus of all other shields and/or books in RuneScape. Previously, that title belonged to the Mage's book, which has five less Magic offence.

It is the only Spirit shield to give a magic attack bonus. Although it is a mage shield, this shield surpasses most warrior shields in terms of defence. Very wealthy players may find this shield essential. It is the most common spirit shield used for player killing, due to its magic offence and melee defences.

  • On 1 February 2010, the spirit shields appearances were changed to match their inventory pictures, which were updated before. Arcane spirit shields color was changed into golden yellow. Previously Arcane and Divine were close to same shade of green and Elysian and Spectral were close to same shade of blue. This update was probably done to make the spirit shields more distinguishable from eachother.
