The Rune defender is the strongest defender available. It is used for its attack bonus and is held in the off-hand slot, in place of a shield. It requires 40 Attack and 40 Defence to wield. The Rune defender is dropped by Cyclops on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild. Players have to show either their Adamant defender or Rune defender (player may obtain multiple Rune defenders if they want) to Kamfreena to obtain this as a drop. The Ring of wealth does not affect the chances of getting it as a drop.

The Rune defender's slash and crush defensive bonuses are the same as a Black kiteshield; however, their stab defence bonus is slightly less than an Adamant square shield. It gives a similar bonus to strength as the Obsidian shield, but it is much more commonly used due to its Attack bonuses for melee. A Rune defender is commonly combined with a Dragon scimitar or Abyssal whip for its strength bonus.
