A Detailed Image of the Spectral spirit shield.
The Spectral 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 a Spectral sigil to a Blessed spirit shield. To do this, players need 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing. Additionally, Brother Bordiss can be asked to attach it for 1,500,000 after completing Perils of Ice Mountain. To receive any sigil, Summer's End must be completed.

This shield is equivalent to an Arcane spirit shield, but with a bonus to Magic Defence of +30 instead of an offensive bonus of +20. This shield is commonly used by wealthy players playing Castle Wars and Tzhaar Fight Pits because of its extremely high magic defence. This shield is also effective in the Armadyl boss chamber as it gives good protection against Kree'arra's magic attacks, and is widely used among rangers when fighting the Corporeal Beast. Its high magic defence bonuses also make it a good choice of shield to use on Slayer tasks, as commonly assigned monsters, such as Banshees, Bloodvelds and Pyrefiends, use magic-based melee attacks.

Both the Grand Exchange and "street" prices of the Spectral spirit shield have been known to fluctuate. At the time of its release, the price of the Spectral spirit shield stabilised in around the 50-60M range and was known to be the least expensive of all the spirit shields equipped with spirit sigils. Due to the Corporeal Beast's stomp attack update on 15 October 2008, its price steadily rose to more than 150 million coins. After the crash of Third age armour, its price fell to around 70 million coins on the GE.

With a High Alchemy price of 1,200,000 coins, it is almost always kept upon death.

Trivia

  • On 1 February 2010, the spirit shields appearances were changed to match their inventory pictures, which were updated before. The Spectral spirit shields colour was changed into more of an indigo colour. 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 each other.
