Longswords are medium speed slashing weapons, with a higher damage bonus than the scimitars. They are one-handed, and thus can be used with shields or off-hand weapons, but cannot be used with weapons or equipment that require both hands to use. They are the slashing equivalent to shortswords.

Due to their speed, they have a higher auto-attack damage output than faster weapons to compensate for their speed. This is effectively equalled out when using abilities.

TriviaEdit

  • Before the graphical update, the longsword was more round, much like today's shortsword.
  • A few days before the new longsword look came out, the black knights' swords had changed to the current graphics before it was introduced, Jagex never noticed this error.
  • The rune longsword was held upright like a dragon longsword, unlike the rest. This, however, has been changed and the rune Longsword is now held like all other longswords.
  • Ice Warriors use the old version of the longsword, this may be an oversight by Jagex.
  • The dragon longsword is the only longsword that appears to have a curved point at the tip of the sword.
