|Examine||An ethereal shield with an arcane sigil attached to it.|
The arcane spirit shield was released on 15 September 2008 along with Summer's End and the other spirit shields. It requires 75 Defence, 70 Prayer and 65 Magic to wield. The shield is made by attaching an arcane sigil to a blessed spirit shield, which requires 90 Prayer and 85 Smithing, giving 1,800 Smithing experience. In addition, you must have completed Summer's End to make or wear the arcane spirit shield. Alternatively, Brother Bordiss will combine the two for players who do not have the requirements to do it themselves, for a cost of 1,500,000 coins.

Damage reduction abilityEdit
Like the Elysian and Divine spirit shields, the Arcane spirit shield reduces all incoming damage by 30%, and 6% of the original damage dealt is drained from prayer points. For example, a hit of 2,000 would be reduced to 1,400 and 120 prayer points would be drained. This effect only works as the player has adequate prayer points; without prayer the effect does not work.
- On 1 February 2010, the spirit shields' appearances were changed to match their inventory pictures, which were updated on 11 January. The arcane spirit shield's colour was changed into golden yellow from a pale yellow-green. Previously, the arcane spirit shield and divine spirit shield were close to the same shade of green.
- On 15 March 2011, along with the Ring of Wealth update, the spirit shield sigils became a near 100% drop from the Corporeal Beast. This glitch was patched within an hour of release.
- As of 4 June 2013, the arcane spirit shield's appearance is bugged: When unsheathed, the shield's sigil changes to that of the elysian spirit shield.
- Arcane means "known or understood by very few; secret".
