The black chainbody is a body armour that has better defence than a steel chainbody, and can be worn by a player with 25 Defence. This item has the same bonuses as a white chainbody, except for the +1 prayer bonus.
Following a graphical update to the equipment on 6 March2012, the player's torso appears transparent whilst wearing a black chainbody. This was fixed a day later. Because of this glitch the price of the body was being sold at extremely high prices but quickly dropped.
