An ancient, evil shield forged by Volcanic heat.
Malediction ward detail

The malediction ward is a mage-class shield that requires at least 60 Defence to wield. The ward is created from three components: the Malediction shard 1, Malediction shard 2 and Malediction shard 3, all dropped by different bosses within the wilderness (Shard 1 - Chaos Fanatic, Shard 2 - Crazy archaeologist, Shard 3 - Scorpia).

When all three shards are present in the players inventory, they must travel to the Volcanic Forge on the most north-east part of the wilderness to forge the ward.

In terms of stats, the ward provides melee defence identical to that of a dragon square shield but provides a moderate amount of magic defence instead of providing ranged defence. The shield carries a substantial magic attack bonus but negative melee and ranged attack bonuses. Because of this the shield is suitable for mages, but unsuitable for other combat.

Using Volcanic Forge

A player combines the three shards, creating the ward.

Players can use a ward upgrade kit, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance the malediction ward, creating a malediction ward (or). This only alters its appearance, and renders it untradeable. It can be reverted, but the kit will not be retained.
