Magic armours provide very little Ranged defence bonuses, but are used instead to harness the magic attacking ability of a mage and to provide melee and some magic defence bonuses. Some magic armours can be made by players. None of the following armour bonuses include bonuses from the related staff. Click on the links to see the main articles for more information. Wearing magic armour will hinder a player's accuracy with the other combat styles, ranged being affected more than melee.

Elemental body detail.png

Helmet, Body, Gloves, Boots, Shield

In order to make elemental equipment, elemental ore must be smelted with coal into an elemental bar and smithed into armour on one of the workshop's anvils. The base for the elemental armours is a primed bar, which is created by operating machines to modify an elemental bar, on the level below the workshop. To do this, Elemental Workshop I must be completed.

Wizard robes

Wizard robe top detail.png
Wizard hat chathead.png

Hat, Top, Skirt, Gloves, Boots

Wizards robes are the most basic robes in free-to-play. Wizard robes consist of a hat, a robe top, a robe bottom, and gloves. Wizard boots can be obtained from Treasure Trails, for members.

Mind equipment (m)

Mind helmet chathead.png
Mind body detail.png

Helmet, Body, Gloves, Boots, Shield

Hexcrest chathead.png
Hexcrest detail.png

The hexcrest is a ring worn around the head and may be received as a drop from Jungle strykewyrms. Although it offers poor bonuses, people often prefer to wear it when using magic on a slayer task, or attaching it to a full slayer helmet and wear that, as it gives a 20% bonus to magic damage, akin to the black mask and focus sight. When not on a slayer task, the hexcrest yields no additional effects.

Combat robes - level 20

Combat hood chathead.png
Combat robe top detail.png

Hood, Top, Bottom

Combat robes are obtained as a reward from the Fist of Guthix minigame. They cost 300 Fist of Guthix tokens to buy, and 30 to repair all three components. The robes, while equipped, occasionally increase the damage of combat spells. Combat robes degrade after 100 uses, from full charge.

Body body detail.png

Helmet, Body, Gloves, Boots, Shield

In order to make body equipment, an elemental bar must be first modified into a primed bar, by operating machines on the level below the workshop.

Healer hat (m)

Healer hat chathead.png
Healer hat detail.png

The Healer hat is a piece of member's only armour. To wear the hat the player must have at least 40 Defence. The healer hat can be obtained by exchanging 275 Honour Points in each role and defeating the Penance Queen from the Barbarian Assault minigame.

Battle robes

Battle hood chathead.png
Battle robe top detail.png

Hood, Top, Bottom

Enchanted robes may only be received from Treasure Trails, or bought from other people or the Grand Exchange.

Dagon'hai hat chathead.png
Dagon'hai robe top detail.png

Hat, Top, Bottom

Dagon'hai robes are the robes worn by the Zamorakian Dagon'hai order. They are superior to mystic robes in terms of stats, but having killed Bork at least once in the Chaos Tunnels is a requirement to wear them. A set is obtained for free during While Guthix Sleeps, while searching Dark Squall's desk. Surok Magis and other members of the order wear these robes.

Necromancer gear (m) - level 40

Necromancer hood chathead.png
Necromancer robe top detail.png

Hood, Top, Bottom

The necromancer robes are upgraded Dagon'hai robes. The upgrade is in the prayer bonus, which is +10. Any of the three pieces of Dagon'hai robes can be turned into necromancer robes by using a necromancer kit on them, along with ten pieces of fine cloth and level 85 Crafting.

All of these items can be obtained from opening various chests in the Shade Catacombs under Mort'ton, but the necromancer kit itself is untradeable and can only be received from opening a chest with a gold key, effectively making level 80 Firemaking a requirement. Even so, the chances to get one are quite small, but they are increased if wearing a ring of wealth when opening the chest. In addition, gold keys become much more common if wearing Morytania legs 3 during the cremation of fiyr corpses.

Splitbark armour - level 40

Splitbark body detail.png
Splitbark helm chathead.png

Helmet, Body, Legs, Gauntlets, Boots

Splitbark armour is a medium-level magic armour. They give better defence bonuses than batwing robes. They are not very common, as they are hard to make, and many players prefer other robes.

Farseer helm (m) - level 45

A Farseer helm.
Farseer helm chathead.png

A Farseer helm is an upper-medium-level magic helmet. The Farseer helm is relatively popular, as it is cheaper than the Infinity hat and Third-age mage hat, is easier to obtain than the Healer hat, and does not degrade like Ahrim's hood. It is extremely popular due to the hybrid PvP.

Chaos equipment (m)

Chaos helmet chathead.png
Chaos body detail.png

Helmet, Body, Gloves, Boots, Shield

In order to make chaos equipment, an elemental bar must be first modified into a primed bar, by operating machines on the level below the workshop.

Sacred clay hat chathead.png

Hat, Top, Bottom

Sacred clay armour can be bought from the rewards mystic with Stealing Creation points. As long as it has charges - the clay degrades. The armour and weapons may be changed into pieces of magic, ranged or melee armour and weapons at will. A more expensive shield may also be bought. The magic variant offers decent bonuses, but most players prefer to use mystic or batwing robes as they are cheaper.

Infinity robes (m) - level 55

Infinity top detail.png
Infinity hat chathead.png

Hat, Top, Bottoms, Gloves, Boots

Infinity robes are a reward purchasable from the Mage Training Arena minigame. Infinity robes give a higher defence bonuses than Mystic equipment.

Dragonbone mage hat chathead.png
Dragonbone mage top detail.png

Hat, Top, Bottoms, Gloves, Boots

Grifolic poncho detail.png
Grifolic visor chathead.png

Visor, Poncho, Leggings, Gloves, Shield

Grifolic armour is a medium-level, upgraded version of the mycelium web armour. Using the Crafting skill, grifolic flakes are added to the visor, poncho and leggings of their web armour counterparts; a total of 5100 grifolic flakes are required for the three parts. The gloves and shields are dropped by grifolaroos and grifolapines respectively. The armour is rarely used as it is comparatively less cost-effective; the mystic equipment have lower stats but are significantly cheaper and also available to free-to-play players.

Any armour made from flakes from the Polypore Dungeon degrades with combat, and can be reconstructed by using the relevant flakes on it.

God capes (m) - level 60

Guthix cape detail.png

Saradomin cape (blue/white), Guthix cape (green/teal), Zamorak cape (black/red)

The God capes are the best capes available for magic critical, and moderate in defence. They can be earned from the Mage Arena minigame. Many players use them for their high magic critical and ease of recovering them if lost.

Lunar torso detail.png
Lunar helm chathead.png

Helmet, Torso, Legs, Gloves, Boots, Amulet, Cape

Lunar equipment is made during the Lunar Diplomacy quest. Despite being level 60 power armour, it only requires 40 defence to equip, making it great for players with lower defence levels.

Third-age robe top detail.png
Third-age mage hat chathead.png

Hat, Top, Bottom

Third-age mage robes are a high-level magic armour. Third-age mage robes are extremely rare, and therefore very expensive. Third-age mage robes are mainly used as a status symbol, rather than a practical set of robes. Third-age mage robes can be obtained from Treasure Trails, or by trading with another player.

High level equipment

Robes of Subjugation (m) - level 70

Hood of subjugation chathead.png
Garb of subjugation detail.png

Hood, Garb, Gown, Gloves, Boots, Ward

Robes of subjugation are a high-levelled armour, popular amongst players who can afford them. The robes were once made by the demon Razulei for Zamorak when he returned after Zaros' banishment. They possess special powers, so that the mages wearing them who are not loyal to Zamorak are tortured, leaving only his true followers. These robes may be acquired as drops from K'ril Tsutsaroth and his lackeys in the God Wars Dungeon.

Ahrim the Blighted's robes (m) - level 70

Ahrim's hood chathead.png
Ahrim's robe top detail.png

Hood, Robetop, Ahrim's robe skirt

Ahrim's robes are high-level magic armour. Ahrim's robetop and robeskirt give the second highest defence bonuses available concerning torso and legs, respectively. Ahrim's robes are very popular, especially amongst more advanced participants in Player-versus-Player activities, particularly Fist of Guthix. They are comparatively cheap, but require repairing every 15 hours of combat and require a moderately high magic and defence level. When wielding all of Ahrim's robes, including the staff, spells have a chance of reducing their target's strength. This power is called 'Blighted Aura'. Ahrim's robetop and robeskirt are often combined with other pieces of armour to form a high magic defence set of armour.

Ganodermic armour (m) - level 75

Ganodermic poncho detail.png
Ganodermic visor chathead.png

Visor, Poncho, Leggings, Gloves, Boots

Ganodermic armour is a high-level, upgraded version of the mycelium web armour. Using the Crafting skill, ganodermic flakes are added to the visor, poncho and leggings of their web armour counterparts; a total of 7000 ganodermic flakes are required for the three parts. The gloves and boots are dropped by ganodermic beasts and ganodermic runts.

Any armour made from flakes from the Polypore Dungeon degrades with combat, and can be reconstructed by using the relevant flakes on it.

Zuriel's equipment (m) - level 78

Corrupt zuriel's robe top detail.png
Zuriel's hood chathead.png

Hood, Top, Bottom

Zuriel's robes are one of the four sets of Ancient Warriors' equipment. While it has good stats, the disadvantage is that is it degrades while using it. Moreover, it is quite expensive. Previously, parts of any of the sets could only be received (with much luck) from player-versus-player or Bounty Hunter worlds, but now they are dropped by all revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon as well as the Chaos Elemental.

Virtus armour (m) - level 80

Virtus robe top detail.png
Virtus mask chathead.png

Mask, Top, Legs

Virtus armour is a high level set of equipment obtainable from the Zarosian boss, Nex. It requires level 80 in Magic, Defence, and Constitution. It is currently the third most expensive set of magic armour in the game, after Tectonic and Third-age armour.

Anima Core of Seren (m) - level 80

Anima Core body of Seren detail.png
Anima Core helm of Seren chathead.png

Helm, Body, Legs, Refined Helm, Refined Body, Refined Legs

Anima Core of Seren is a high level set of equipment obtainable from the Heart of Gielinor. It requires 80 Defence to wear. It has stats similar to virtus equipment and does not degrade, but it provides no bonuses to Prayer or life points. It is currently the best non-degrading set of magic equipment in the game.

Hybrid armour (m) - level 85

Trickster helm chathead.png
Battle-mage helm chathead.png

Trickster armour, Vanguard armour, Battlemage armour

Although "hybrid" armour offers even better bonuses than Nex armour, these only apply inside a number of safe player-versus-player minigames and otherwise they are purely cosmetic.

The special thing about the armours is that they focus on not one, but two combat classes at once. Trickster armour offers great bonuses for mages who like to first freeze their target and then kill them off with a bow (or of course bowsmen who prefer to finish off their opponent with a blast of magic) and battlemage armour is designed for battlemages who use spell alongside sword.

The armours are received in pieces (helm, body, leggings, gloves and boots) and at the end of several minigames, there is rare chance of receiving a piece. Each minigame offers a piece for a specific slot and, should one be lucky enough to get one, a screen opens up offering the choice between that piece of vanguard, trickster or battlemage armour.

Seasinger's robes (m) - level 85

Seasinger's hood chathead.png
Seasinger's robe top detail.png

Hood, Top, Bottom - Superior Hood, Superior Top, Superior Bottom

Seasinger's robes offer the third-best defensive bonuses, behind Primeval equipment and it's Achto counterpart. They require 85 Defence and 85 Constitution to wear and are made with Chi globes obtained in the Player-owned port minigame. There are two versions of the armour; a standard tradeable version, and a 'superior' untradeable version with slightly better stats.

To make the armour, you will need 90 Runecrafting and a total of 200 Chi globes for the superior version or 160 for the normal version.

The inferior armour will degrade to dust after 10 hours of combat stance, while the superior armour will degrade after 12 hours. However, the superior set can be repaired by Bob, an armour stand, or at the Ports workbench. Repairing at an armour stand takes into account your Runecrafting level instead of your Smithing level.

Tectonic armour (m) - level 90

Tectonic mask chathead.png
Tectonic robe top detail.png

Mask, Top, Bottom

Tectonic robes are the strongest power magic armour available. They require level 90 Magic and Defence to equip and last for 100,000 hits before degrading. This armour cannot be repaired once degraded and will simply disappear after fully degrading. Tectonic robes are made by combining a stone of binding with tectonic energy, the latter being a common drop from the boss monster Vorago. Level 93 Runecrafting is required to make all 3 parts. Once this armour has been equipped it cannot be traded.

Primeval equipment (m) - level 90

Primeval Mask chathead.png
Primeval robe top detail.png

Mask, Top, Bottom, Boots, Gloves- Superior Mask, Superior Top, Superior Bottom, Superior Boots, Superior Gloves

Primeval equipment is untradeable, degradable, level 90 magic tank armour, available from Raids. It comes in normal and superior (achto) versions. Although degradable, the armour doesn't degrade in Raids. Both sets can trigger the ability to reset all Defensive ability cooldowns. The superior Achto version has a secondary effect - if you equip a weapon and shield of matching combat styles, each Achto armour piece will boost your strength bonus for that style by 10%, or 5% if you equip a defender instead.

The normal version is purchasable from the armoursmith with teci. It has 100,000 charges of combat, and will degrade to dust when those charges are depleted. The superior version is available as a rare reward from Beastmaster Durzag and Yakamaru that gives bonus damage if a shield is wielded.
