Armadyl Godsword Detail

The Armadyl 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 an Armadyl hilt to a completed godsword blade, which has no requirements and can be done by any player. Along with the Bandos godsword, the Saradomin godsword, and the Zamorak godsword, the Armadyl godsword carries one of the highest damage bonuses in the surface world, surpassed only by Vesta's spear and the chaotic maul.

The armadyl godsword has a passive effect that hits 25% of the time; when it does, it raises the wielder's Attack and Strength levels by 1 each time, for up to 10% of the wielder's attack and strength levels. This boost does not stack with potions.

Given this godsword's old special attack was most used for the highest damage among the godswords, this passive effect is somewhat strange, in the sense that while the other three godswords' passive effects more or less mimic what their special attacks did pre-EoC, AGS doesn't. This is because the passive doesn't stack with potions and is a lot weaker than even super potions. Therefore the passive doesn't actually boost damage provided the player uses at least super potions in combat, and so its use is at best limited to replacing low level potions. Some players question the usefulness of the post-EoC AGS as a result, especially compared with the other godswords.

The Armadyl godsword has a special attack called Armadyl's judgement, which deals 250% damage. It uses 50% adrenaline. Critical hits suggests the max is actually 300% however.

Concept art for the updated Armadyl godsword.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, this weapon used to have a special attackThe Judgement was capable of hitting a very large amount of damage. Under ideal conditions, a player could potentially deal over 1,000 damage to a monster with the special attack, with an even higher maximum hit during Castle Wars. This made the Armadyl godsword very popular for all PvP activities.
  • Like other godswords and the God Wars Dungeon itself, the Armadyl godsword received a graphical update on the 5th September 2012. As a nod to Armadyl's aviantese, the blade now resembles a large feather.
  • The Armadyl Godsword slightly resembles the broken sword, dubbed "Guthix's Sword", which is seen during the quest The World Wakes in the first room.
