Vesta's longsword is the third strongest longsword in the game, beaten only by the chaotic longsword and the Drygore longsword. It is obtained by killing Revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon or the Chaos Elemental in very deep Wilderness and is considered the best drop possible from said foes. This piece of weaponry was released with the release of PvP worlds on 15 October 2008.
The normal version requires 78 Attack and lasts for an hour of combat. After the time is up, the longsword will vanish. The time restrictions are the same in Wilderness PvP and other combat situations.
Contrary to popular belief, this item does not degrade while using non-combat magic.
Vesta's longsword is a one-handed weapon, and thus a shield can be used with it. After the sword has been used in combat it will become untradeable. However, this weapon is extremely expensive considering its short time-limit.
- As an hour contains 6000 ticks and the sword hits once per 5 ticks, you are able to hit 1200 hits with this sword before it degrades. Thus, each hit costs approximately 10,428 coins when using this sword.

- Since the Evolution of Combat update, the usefulness of this sword has been greatly reduced to primarily showing off wealth. The special attack has been removed and its combat stats are surpassed by other, much cheaper weapons, such as the Chaotic longsword.
- Vesta's longsword resembles the Roman longsword known as the Spatha.
- Vesta is the Roman goddess of the hearth, home, and family.
- Currently, when using an aura, two swords are visible, the longsword itself and the glow made by the aura.
- The Vesta's longsword fell in price due to the More Loot = More W00t! update that was part of the ClusterFlutterer celebration, and because of the double loot drop during one of the Mad May weekends. Another large reason why the price of the Vesta's longsword fell in price is because of EOC removing its Player Killing effect with the special attack.
- It is presumed that Vesta's longsword is the rarest of all revenant drops, apart from the Ancient statuette.
- Thok uses the former special attack of the Vesta's longsword in the Fremennik Saga, Thok It To 'Em.
