Wooden shield: Misc

A wooden shield is the weakest shield available along with the Training shield, but one of a small group with no Attack or Defence penalties to any form of combat. It is round in shape, and while all warriors should quickly progress to something better, it is better than nothing for magic users, since it has no penalties. It can be purchased from Cassie's Shield Shop in Falador or found north of the Varrock city wall as a respawn. In addition, it provides a +1 bonus to magic defence.

A more elegant alternative is the Training shield.



In early April 2007, there was a glitch regarding the shield. During those few weeks, players did not receive a Wooden Shield from Tutorial Island, thus leading players to believe that it had been discontinued. In reality, the shield was still being sold at the Falador shield shop and at the respawn point mentioned above. This was soon set straight and the wooden shields were placed back into the tutorial. In mid-2008, Tutorial Island was retired and new players no longer receive a Wooden Shield.

  • It is not uncommon to see mages using a wooden shield, because there is no attack penalty, and there are fair defence bonuses.
  • Sir Amik Varze seems to be wielding a white version of this shield.
  • One was given free on Tutorial Island, before the tutorial was changed.
  • Once the Tutorial Island was removed from new runescape players, many players thought the wooden shield will become discontinued.
