|Examine||A shield worn by magic-using followers of Zamorak.|
The Ward of subjugation is an item worn in the shield slot. It is affiliated with Zamorak and is dropped by K'ril Tsutsaroth and his bodyguards Zakl'n Gritch, Tstanon Karlak and Balfrug Kreeyath. It requires 70 Magic and Defence to use. Players attempting to obtain the item from these monsters also require an indirect requirement of 70 Constitution and either 60 Strength or Agility to enter the God Wars Dungeon.
The shield is the magic equivalent of the Bandos warshield and the Armadyl buckler. It has identical stats to the Crystal shield, except the Crystal shield has no prayer bonus. It also has identical stats to the fully charged magic-based dragonfire shield; along with a small Prayer bonus.
When received with CoinShare active, the Ward of subjugation will be dropped as 120 Ward of subjugation shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

Not long after Zamorak achieved godhood, he became worried about his followers, which were not loyal to him and were planning to betray him the same way he did with Zaros. Seeing that, he visited Razulei in the Infernal Dimensions and requested the creation of the robes of subjugation, powerful robes imbued with cruelty. After they were created, Zamorak paid Razulei handsomely and gave them to his mages. His mages drew power from the clothes with the objective of overcoming him and were flooded with pain. Desperate to cease it, they drew even more power from the robes, but it only worsened the pain and it eventually killed them.
After Zamorak's banishment, his followers that wished to return him to Gielinor were loyal, so they could use the power of the robes without succumbing to pain, but prospering in the name of Zamorak.
- Even though the name of this item begins with Ward, when you check your Adventurer's log it will say "After killing a K'ril Tsutsaroth/Zakl'n Gritch/Tstanon Karlak/Balfrug Kreeyath, it dropped a shield of subjugation". This may be an oversight from Jagex.
