Guthan's platebody detail.png

Guthan's platebody is melee armour worn in the torso slot that is part of Guthan the Infested's set of barrows equipment. To wear Guthan's platebody, a player must have 70 Defence. It is currently tied with Torag's platebody and Dharok's platebody as being the third strongest platebody in the game, behind Statius's platebody and the Torva platebody.

Being part of the Guthan's set, if Guthan's platebody is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in the set, the player receives a special effect. Successful attacks have a chance of replenishing one life point for each point of damage the player deals. As with all Barrows equipment, this item cannot be made using the Smithing skill.

Guthan's armour is often used by players to heal (thus saving inventory space on food) and then switch to non-degradable melee armour afterwards. This method saves money and ultimately puts off having to repair the armour as regularly. The healing set effect also proves useful for training Slayer.

In the past, due to the resemblance, scammers have been known to offer studded bodies or hardleather bodies instead of Guthan's platebodies in hopes that the other player does not notice the difference. Due to the armour graphical update, however, this scam became non-existent.

  • Guthan's platebody is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Barrows equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.

There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.

The following NPCs can repair the armour:
