A detailed view of Vesta's longsword.

Vesta's longsword is the strongest longsword in the game. It is obtained by killing another player on a PvP world. This piece of weaponry was released with the release of PvP worlds on 15 October 2008.

The corrupt version requires 20 Attack and lasts for 15 minutes equipped, while the normal version requires 78 Attack and lasts for an hour of combat. After the time is up, the longsword will vanish. The time restrictions are the same on PvP and non-PvP worlds.

Contrary to popular belief, this item does NOT degrade while using NON-COMBAT magic.

It is currently one of the best weapons available in RuneScape. This is because its speed makes it a fast alternative to the Godsword. However, this weapon is extremely expensive considering its short time-limit.

The longsword is a one-handed weapon, and thus a shield can be used with it. With a Rune defender, its slash accuracy leads the Godsword's by 8 points, +140 to +132. The longsword's Strength bonus (with rune defender) trails the Godsword's by 9 points, +123 to +132.

Its special attack, Feint, inflicts 20% more damage and is harder to defend against while only draining 25% of the special bar, making it deadly as it can be used four times in a row. When activated, the player thrusts the sword out with an exaggerated motion. The power and accuracy of this attack has made the Longsword the only piece of Ancient Warrior's equipment to retain a high price, due to its fatal capabilities, similar to the Corrupt dragon battleaxe on Free to Play servers. Only the non-corrupted version features this attack. The special attack has the same sound as a Dragon Longsword's special attack.

It is often used by rich player killers as a KO weapon. This is because it has the potential to hit well above 60 and has a fast attack speed.
