Corrupt dragon scimitar detail

The Corrupt dragon scimitar was released on 15 October 2008 along with the PvP worlds. It is the strongest scimitar available to non-members, but it crumbles to dust after 30 minutes of wielding. It requires 60 Attack to wield.

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.

Warning: Once you wield this item for longer than a few seconds, it will have the word (deg) added to its name and it becomes untradeable. Using this item in combat adds the (deg) to its name almost instantly, also rendering it untradeable.

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 still fairly popular even after the Evolution of Combat, currently standing as the third most expensive of the corrupt dragon weapons at 257,874 coins, behind the corrupt dragon battleaxe and the corrupt dragon spear. However, it is generally not a practical choice to use in PvP scenarios, 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.

The corrupt dragon scimitar does not require completion of the Monkey madness quest to wield.
