Zamorak godsword detail

The Zamorak godsword is one of the four legendary godswords that was fought over during the God Wars. Requiring 75 Attack to wield, it is created by attaching a Zamorak hilt to a completed godsword blade, which has no requirements and can be done by any player. Along with the Armadyl godsword, the Bandos godsword, the Saradomin godsword, and the Auspicious katana, the Zamorak godsword is one of the best 2-handed melee weapons in the game, aside from certain weapons in Daemonheim, Stealing Creation, and the Dominion Tower.

Like all godswords, the Zamorak godsword has a passive effect. This godsword has a 25% chance to bind the target for 5 seconds on a successful hit. 

This godsword's passive effect isn't obviously useful but can come in handy in various situations. For example when countering the Binding shot ability or preventing a target from escaping in various PvP minigames or in the wilderness (this is more useful than it sounds, because when a melee user chases after a running enemy, the melee user cannot even use any abilities, as the game would simply say the target is too far away even when the target is close enough to be autoattacked), and Saradomin Godwars Dungeon for binding the Commander in place if in coordination with a group using ranged attacks. The bind also provides a slight boost to the Punish ability when fighting against monsters that can be stunned (testing shows being bound also activates Punish's extra damage, however this doesn't seem to be the case in PvP).

Special AttackEdit

Combat Beta 2014 forum icon This article or section contains information about a feature pertaining to the Combat Improvements Beta. As such, the information is subject to change. This feature is also not available or accessible in the live version of RuneScape.

The zamorak godsword has a special attack called Ice cleave, which deals 10% more damage (testing however suggests the special has a maximum hit of 180% weapon damage) and freezes the target for 10 seconds. It requires 60% adrenaline.

  • Before the Evolution of Combat this weapon used to have a special attack called Ice Cleave. The attack would freeze the opponent for 20 seconds and consumed 60% of the special attack bar. The animation would consist of the character performing a stabbing motion resulting in an ice animation at the enemy's feet. Prior to the graphical update on 1 July 2008, the player would simply perform a chopping motion resulting an ice block formation around the enemy, the exact animation used for Ice Barrage.
  • Like all godswords and the God Wars Dungeon itself, the Zamorak godsword received a graphical update on 5 September 2012.
