|A vicious, curved sword.|
Players can make a rune scimitar with the smithing skill at level 90 using 2 rune bars, giving the player 150 smithing experience. It also can be dropped by various monsters such as fire giants or mummies.
Rune scimitars are the preferred weapon for F2P players as the speed and strength bonus is arguably the best available. Players who choose to level with shared experience should consider using the rune sword for a better stab bonus while maintaining the speed of a rune scimitar.
