The Ancient kiteshield is a decorated rune kiteshield that is affiliated with the god Zaros. Sharing the same stats as the rune kiteshield except with prayer bonus, the ancient kiteshield also looks visually similar. Its appearance differs in that the shield features an ornamental purple trim.
The shield requires 40 defence to wear and cannot be made using the smithing skill.
Players can obtain an Ancient kiteshield either as a reward from completing a level 3 Treasure Trail, or trading with another player.
