Players can obtain this item either by trading with another player, or by receiving it as a very rare drop from killing Revenants or the Chaos Elemental.

After this item was introduced, its price was about 3 million coins, and the Corrupt dragon battleaxe's was 3.3 million. This was the second most expensive corrupt dragon weapon for years, ahead of the Corrupt dragon longsword but behind the Corrupt dragon battleaxe. It is currently the second most expensive of the corrupt dragon weapons, behind only the corrupt dragon spear. However, many players feel it is not worth the hefty 338,644 coins required to buy it, as both the corrupt dragon dagger and the corrupt dragon mace are significantly less expensive and have the same stats and attack speed as the scimitar, with the mace also offering a prayer bonus.
