What is Arclight?

Arclight, a celestial weapon requiring a formidable 75 Attack to wield, stands as a superior version of Darklight. Its celestial glow isn't merely aesthetic; it harbors enhanced attack capabilities and a divine passive effect designed to vanquish demons.


Where Can You Acquire Arclight?

To obtain the Arclight you must first complete the Shadow of the Storm quest to obtain the Darklight and collect it with 3 ancient shards in the Altar in the center of the Catacombs of Kourend to be able to have the unspeakable for demons "Arclight" in your hands.

Stats that Illuminate the Shadows

Arclight's stats elevate it above its predecessor, Darklight. With improved attack bonuses and swifter strikes, it becomes a formidable choice against demonic adversaries. However, its true power lies in its passive effect, which we'll explore next.

Passive Effect and Special Attack

Passive Effect:

Arclight illuminates its surroundings with a 70% increase in accuracy and damage when wielded against demonic monsters. This celestial boost makes it a potent weapon in specific scenarios, outshining even renowned weapons like the blade of saeldor or scythe of Vitur against foes like K'ril Tsutsaroth or demonic gorillas.

Special Attack - Weaken:

Retaining the Weaken special attack from Darklight, Arclight strikes a blow against the strength, attack, and defense of your opponents. A formidable ability, it consumes 50% of your special attack energy. Weaken not only weakens your adversaries' physical prowess but also showcases the radiant power of Arclight in combat.



Charges are added by using 3 Ancient shards on Arclight. Beginning with 1,000 charges after creation, it gains an additional 1,000 charges for every 3 shards added, with a maximum capacity of 10,000 charges. One charge is consumed for each successful attack when using Arclight, with the exception of special attacks. If all charges are consumed, it will revert to Darklight.

Avoid recharging Arclight when it is above 9,000 charges since it will still cap at 10,000, wasting some charges.

The rarity of ancient shards is likely to prevent prolonged use of Arclight without it running out of charges. If Arclight is lost, it can only be replaced by paying Sir Prysin 1,000 coins for Darklight and enhancing it with ancient shards again.


Arclight, a celestial force against the abyss, is your key to triumph in the darkest corners of Gielinor. As you harness its radiant power, demons will tremble, and victory will be your constant companion. May the celestial glow guide you through the shadows, adventurer.

In the tapestry of OSRS adventures, Arclight is the golden thread that pierces through darkness. Equip it with pride, for you now possess the knowledge to wield its celestial radiance. As you step into the unknown, let Arclight be your guiding star. Illuminate the shadows and emerge victorious, for the world of Gielinor awaits your legend. Safe travels, brave soul!
