[view] •[talk] The Shadow sword is a two-handed sword obtained as a reward from the Shadow Sword miniquest, which was released on 12 February 2007. The sword matches the Ghostly Robes set and is translucent. As it is a two-handed sword, it causes capes to become animated.

Like most two-handed swords, this sword is slower than most one-handed weapons. Its stats are the same as aBlack two-handed sword. However, it provides bonuses for Magic Attack and Magic Defence, which makes it a useful weapon for combining melee and magic.
If you happen to lose it, return to the room in the cave where you fought Bouncer. There will be a new, friendly ghost that is willing to give you back your lost sword. Remember your Ghostspeak Amulet otherwise you won't be able to talk to the ghost.
