A detailed image of Balmung.

Balmung is a two-handed weapon which is given to the player by Queen Sigrid during the quest Blood Runs Deep. Level 75 Attack and Strength and level 65 Slayer are necessary to wield the weapon, as these are required to start the quest. Balmung is obtained relatively early in Blood Runs Deep and does not require any further completion of the quest to use it.

The Balmung deals extra damage on Dagannoths. As of yet, the exact boosting properties of Balmung are uncertain.

If a player destroys the Balmung, they can retrieve it from Queen Sigrid found in the Miscellania castle after the completion of Blood Runs Deep. She tells the player that the next time the Balmung is lost, they will have to pay 225,000 coins to get it back.

  • Balmung resembles Dharok's Greataxe and is held in the same position.
  • A player can use High Alchemy on the weapon for a profit of 135,000 coins, then go get another one for free later. This can only be done once, however.
  • This weapon is a direct reference to the blade of the same name wielded by Siegfried in the German epic-poem Nibelungenlied.
  • Balmung has the highest strength requirement of any weapon.
  • Balmung has the same crush ability as a Godsword (+80) but is slightly slower and gives a lower strength bonus.
