Rune platebody (Ancient) detail.png

The rune platebody (ancient) or ancient platebody is a decorated rune platebody that is affiliated with the god Zaros. Sharing the same stats as the rune platebody (apart from the +1 prayer bonus which is present in all god armour), the rune platebody (ancient) also looks visually similar. Its appearance differs in that the plate features an ornamental purple trim around the symbol of Zaros. The platebody requires 50 Defence to wear and cannot be made using the Smithing skill. Like the rune platebody, the rune platebody (ancient) also requires the completion of the Dragon Slayer quest to equip. Players can obtain an rune platebody (ancient) as a reward from completing a level 4 treasure trail, or from burning a vyre corpse in the Columbarium.

This platebody is a constituent of the Ancient armour set which consists of the following items: Rune full helm (Ancient), Rune platebody (Ancient), Rune platelegs (Ancient) or Rune plateskirt (Ancient), and Rune kiteshield (Ancient) — all of which are decorative versions of their respective rune armour counterparts.
