The Rune defender is dropped by Cyclopes on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild. To enter, a player must either have Attack and Strength levels with a sum of at least 130, or have an Attack or Strength level of 99. Strength potions or Attack potions cannot be used to reach the level requirement. Players must show their Adamant defender to Kamfreena to obtain the rune defender as a drop. The Ring of wealth does not affect the chances of getting it as a drop.
The Rune defender gives the same strength bonus as the Obsidian shield, but is more commonly used when using melee due to its Attack bonuses for melee. A Rune defender is commonly combined with a Dragon Longsword , Dragon scimitar, Abyssal whip, Chaotic rapier or Chaotic longsword for its strength and attack bonus. The rune or dragon defender must be wielded to fight the Cyclossus.
