Noxious scythe detail

The noxious scythe is a level 90 two-handed melee weapon that can be created at level 90 Crafting by combining a spider leg with Araxxi's fang, both of which are obtained by fighting Araxxor and Araxxi. It is currently the second most powerful two-handed melee weapon outside of Daemonheim, only surpassed by the Zaros godsword. It has the same attack range and mechanics as a halberd.

The scythe will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a Player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 4,500,000 coins.

Creating a noxious scythe by buying a spider leg yields a profit of 88,051,008 coins.

During Dishonour among Thieves, the player apparition can wield a noxious scythe during the first phase.

The noxious scythe may be augmented using the Invention skill.

Special AttackEdit

The Noxious scythe has a special attack named Mirrorback, which requires full adrenaline and will summon a mirrorback spider to aid the player. While active, the spider will reduce damage from attacks against the player by 50%, and reflect that damage to the attacker, but it will also be damaged for an equal amount. For instance, if the player is hit by an attack that deals 1000 damage, both the player and the spider take 500 damage, and the attacker receives 500 points of deflection damage. This will last for ten seconds or until the spider loses all 10,000 of its life points, whichever comes first. This special attack does not work against certain attacks, and also cannot deflect damage back to attackers that are immune to deflection damage.

TriviaEdit

  • Even though the item has a broken inventory sprite, when dropped, it will still look the same as if it was not broken.
  • From its release date to the release of Raids (and two-handed weapon changes), the scythe's range was changed from normal melee distance to that of an halberd.
