Shards of Armadyl detail

Shards of Armadyl can be obtained by killing Glacors. The shards can be used in two ways:

An orb of armadyl can be made using 100 of the shards. Using this orb on a Battlestaff gives an armadyl battlestaff.
Each individual shard can be ground down with the use of a pestle and mortar to receive eight Dust of Armadyl, awarding the player with 1 Herblore experience. This dust can be used with the air altar to create armadyl runes, which are the only type of rune needed to cast the spell Storm of Armadyl.

Value AnalysisEdit

If 100 shards are saved up to make an orb of armadyl, then crafted onto a battlestaff to create an armadyl battlestaff, the Grand Exchange market value per shard is 108,515.

Grinding the shards into Dust of Armadyl yields 27,280 per shard.

The value per shard if making runes depends on how many runes the player is able to craft per Dust of Armadyl based on their Runecrafting level. The minimum level to craft these is 72, so the minimum runes possible per dust is 7, and the maximum possible is 10 per dust at 99 Runecrafting. This comes out to 80 per shard at 99 Runecrafting. The Grand Exchange market values per shard if made into runes are as follows:

Runecrafting Level Runes per dust Value
72 - 76 7 27,776
77 - 87 8 31,744
88 - 98 9 35,712
99 10 39,680

All prices are based on the current Grand Exchange market prices of the items. The Grand Exchange market price for an armadyl rune is currently 496, and the price of the armadyl battlestaff is 10,858,368.

  • Unlike most other stackable items, armadyl shards always appear to have 5 pieces in the icon, regardless of the actual quantity.
