Ancient sceptre Guide OSRS

The ancient sceptre stands as an enhanced iteration of the ancient staff, requiring a formidable set of skills to wield. To harness its power, one must attain level 70 Magic, 60 Strength, and 50 Attack. Functionally, the ancient sceptre inherits the ability of its precursor to autocast spells from both the Ancient Magicks and the standard spellbook. However, its distinction lies in a passive effect that amplifies the potency of Ancient Magicks by 10%. It's important to clarify that this augmentation doesn't extend to an increase in the magic damage bonus. Nevertheless, the visible 5% magic damage bonus aligns synergistically with the slayer helmet bonus.

With its roots deeply embedded in the Zarosian realm, the ancient sceptre serves as a shield in the God Wars Dungeon, offering protection against Zarosian NPCs. This divine connection adds another layer of significance to those who venture into the heart of the battle.

How to create the Ancient sceptre

The forging of the ancient sceptre is a momentous undertaking, requiring the convergence of the ancient icon and staff through a unique process overseen by the enigmatic Eblis. This intricate fusion is not merely a transaction; it represents a commitment, as the melding is irreversible. This irreversible nature underscores the gravity of the decision, as those who embark on this path must be prepared for the permanence of their choice.

The quest for the ancient sceptre begins with the pursuit of the elusive ancient icon, an untradeable treasure that emerges as a rare drop from the formidable Phantom Muspah. Only those who have triumphed over the challenges meticulously laid out in the quest "Secrets of the North" are deemed worthy to undertake the creation of this extraordinary sceptre.

Eblis Location:

Eblis can be found just south-east of the Bandit Camp at the mystical mirrors after Desert Treasure I is completed. If Desert Treasure I is not completed, he can be found in the eastern building in the Bandit Camp.

Quartz upgrades

The potential of the ancient sceptre extends even further through the infusion of quartz upgrades, obtainable from bosses featured in the Desert Treasure II quest. This transformative enhancement is irreversible, cementing the commitment of those who seek to amplify the power of their sceptre.

The upgraded version of the ancient sceptre demands a heightened level of mastery, requiring a minimum of 75 Magic, 60 Strength, and 50 Attack for effective wielding. This elevated skill threshold reflects the increased potential and complexity brought forth by the quartz upgrades.
