The Faithful shield is a shield that can be bought at Castle Wars from Lanthus for 200 Castle wars tickets. Its stats are equivalent to a Rune kiteshield's stats but with a prayer bonus of 6, making it the shield with the fourth highest prayer bonus, behind the Illuminated Prayer books and the Falador shield 4 and Falador shield 3. The shield requires 40 Defence to wield.

- This is the first shield to have particle effects, the second being the Dragonfire Shield (charged) (as of 6 March 2012). The purple glow in the centre of the shield leaves a trail for a short time when the player runs, and it spreads out during combat.
- At 20 minutes per game, getting the 200 tickets required to purchase this item would take at least 34 hours, or a bit more than 41 hours including the 5 minute wait time between matches.
- When struggling in water from a failed agility obstacle, the shield will disappear but the particle glow will remain around the player's hand.
- When it was released, the shield didn't have a defence requirement which made a lot of pures try to get one. The defence requirement was added later.
- This shield in some ways resembles an Elemental talisman.
