Zamorak godsword special attack

A player uses Ice Cleave, the Zamorak godsword's special attack

The Zamorak godsword is one of the four legendary godswords that was fought over during the God Wars. Requiring 75 Attack to wield, it is created by attaching a Zamorak hilt to a completed godsword blade, which has no requirements and can be done by any player. Along with the Armadyl godsword, the Bandos godsword, and the Saradomin godsword, the Zamorak godsword carries the highest slash bonus and highest strength bonus of all melee weapons in the game.

Like all godswords, the Zamorak godsword has a special attack, Ice Cleave, which freezes the target in place for 20 seconds, the same duration as Ice Barrage. It uses 60% of the special attack bar. Like Ice Barrage, this attack can "splash" and fail to freeze the target.

UsesEdit

The freezing effect of Ice Cleave is generally not useful, leading to the Zamorak godsword's reputation as being the "worst" godsword.

Despite this reputation, players have found a number of specific uses for the Zamorak godsword. It is very popular in the Castle Wars minigame when used to freeze flag-bearers, as such players generally wear Ranged armour such as black dragonhide or Armadyl armour in order to more easily defend against enemy mages casting Ancient Magicks. The Zamorak godsword's melee attacks counter this tactic. In the Wilderness, it can also be used to freeze an enemy in place in order to attack from a distance or escape.

The Zamorak godsword has also found use in player-vs-monster situations. It is a popular weapon when fighting Commander Zilyana, as all of her attacks occur in melee range; players can use Ice Cleave to hold her in place, then attack her with Ranged or Magic. It can also be used during the Barrows minigame to freeze the melee-using brothers in place, particularly Dharok the Wretched.
