Platelegs are a type of armour worn mainly by warriors in the leg slot. Among melee attack types, platelegs provide good life point bonuses and armour rating, but is more vulnerable towards Magic attacks. However, platelegs have very good defence against ranged attacks.

Platelegs are made with the Smithing skill or purchased at the plate legs shop identified by the Platelegs shop map icon icon on the map. One such location is Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar in Al Kharid. Horvik's Armour Shop offers iron platelegs.

They are more popular and consequently cost more than the plateskirt, even though they share the same stats and weigh 1 kg more, and they are not gender-locked, i.e. male characters can wear plateskirts and female characters can wear platelegs. In RuneScape Classic, the NPC Thrander could transform platelegs into plateskirts and vice versa for free.


Temple platelegs

These platelegs are unique in that while they might not offer a large amount of physical protection, they offer an increase in prayer points.
