Amulet of water breathing ( ' )
Item Type Amulet
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 15
Material Iron

While wearing an amulet of water breathing, the player receives no drowning damage thanks to having the water breathing intrinsic. It is believed that wearing an amulet of water breathing also decreases the damage from monsters' water breath attacks, however this has not been confirmed.

They are rustproof.


They are extremely useful when visiting the Water Dragon Cave or attempting to cross rivers without the Swimming skill.

For players who choose not to visit the water dragon lair or have already been there, and who have 100 Swimming for crossing rivers, this item not quite useless, since even with 100 Swimming you will occasionally receive drowning damage, which can make a fair difference in the Water Temple.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be found in same way as any generic loot.

There is also around a 50% chance of finding one on the bottom level of the Rift. If the amulet is not created, you might still find a helm of water breathing.
