Zamorak godsword detail

The Zamorak godsword is one of the four variants of the legendary Godsword 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 the second highest strength bonus of all melee weapons in the game.

Players can attach a Zamorak godsword ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to cosmetically enhance the godsword, creating a Zamorak godsword (or). This only alters its appearance, and gives no stat enhancements. It also becomes untradeable, but it can be dismantled, returning the godsword and ornament kit.

Special attackEdit

Zamorak godsword special attack

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

The Zamorak godsword has a special attack, Ice Cleave, which freezes the target in place for 20 seconds, the same duration as Ice Barrage, and increases the user's max hit by 10%. It uses 50% of the special attack bar. Like Ice Barrage, this attack can "splash" and fail to freeze the target.

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; a useful tactic is logging out while standing under the enemy, as they cannot retaliate.

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.
