Exquisite weapons concept art

Concept art for the weapons

The exquisite equipment is a group of 15 weapon types, with corresponding off-hands, and one shield, obtained from the Squeal of Fortune. They were available on the Squeal of Fortune from 31 May 2013 to 3 June 2013 as common prizes. Afterward they remained on the Squeal of Fortune, occasionally appearing as uncommon prizes. They are also still obtainable in Vic's Store for 100 credits each. Each weapon has two versions, requiring level 10 and level 40 in the skill required to wield it. (To change the level of the weapon, place it in your inventory and select "Change exquisite ...".)  Obtaining a main-hand exquisite weapon automatically provides the corresponding off-hand version, with the off-hand going to Diango should you not have space in your bank. For players with less than level 40 in the required skill there is a fee of 1,000 gold to retrieve an exquisite weapon from Diango. When a player has level 40 or higher in the required skill, the fee is 10,000 gold to retrieve a weapon. Main-hand and off-hand weapons each have a retrieval fee.

Off-hand exquisite weapons were once equippable by F2P players and were fully functional, meaning that for the first time F2P players could dual wield swords, maces, and other melee weapons. They still couldn't use members only abilities like Havoc, however. This was likely an oversight by Jagex, as on 4 June 2013, the patch notes included a change which removed the off-hand exquisite weapon functionality on F2P worlds. F2P players can no longer equip off-hand exquisite weapons they won and examining them results in the phrase: "Login to a members' server to use this object." Any off-hand exquisite weapons equipped by F2P players before 4 June 2013 remained equipped, though they no longer provide any combat bonuses and no longer play their attack animations. A F2P player attacking with dual exquisite swords, for example, will now only stab with their main-hand sword despite holding an off-hand sword as well. In F2P, offhand weapons will now only have a Drop option instead of a Destroy option, however when the option is clicked, the interface is the same as if the player has chosen to destroy the item.
