The scythe was the first rare item introduced into Old School RuneScape. They are cosmetic items which can be found all over RuneScape from June 3, 2013 until June 10, 2013. After the initial event, you will be able to get the scythe later in one of the holiday events. Scythes are untradable items.

Basic Information

The following is a list of necessary information you'll need to know about the scythes and how they're spawned:

  • One scythe is spawned in a random location per world. Once that scythe is picked up, it will spawn in another one of its locations. This means that in each world, there is always one scythe spawned in a random location.
  • There are 100 locations the scythe can spawn in (listed below).
  • Scythes do not show up as red dots on the minimap.
  • Scythes can also spawn in the Wilderness.

Share a Scythe Location

Found a scythe but don't want it? Go to our forum thread here and post the scythe's location so that another player can pick it up!

Since you cannot have more than one scythe per account, there are many players out there who still want to get a scythe. If you already own a scythe or simply don't want it, please post the location of it in the thread above so that other players can get it.
