|Examine||A shiny, vicious-looking defensive weapon that can parry attacks, reducing damage and increases the accuracy of your next hit.|
The crystal defender is the strongest defender available, alongside the barrows defender. It is used for its attack bonus and is held in the off-hand slot, in place of a shield. It requires 70 Attack, 70 Defence and 50 Agility to wield. The crystal defender can be obtained as a drop from the Crystal dragon or Crystal strykewyrms, only after obtaining a Dragon defender. Players have to show their Dragon defender to Kamfreena to obtain this as a drop. Ring of wealth does not affect the chances of getting it as a drop.
Like all other Crystalline items and unlike other defenders, this defender has 10 Charges. For ever 100 attacks or defecting, it will degrade by 1 so it would become Crystal defender 9/10, 8/10 and so on. Once it has been completely been used up, it will turn into a Crystal seed. Unlike other defenders and other crystal items, if this becomes a seed, Kamfreena will recharge it for you at no cost.
