The superior tetsu body is a melee platebody made in the Player-owned port minigame. They require 85 Defence to wear, and 90 Smithing to make in the port's workshop, using 100 plate and giving 30,000 Smithing experience. Superior tetsu bodies do not stack in a player's bank, even if they have the same charge.

Wearing any four or more pieces of a superior tetsu armour set (including augmented parts, but not weapons) grants a passive ability, Iron Fist, which gives a chance to obtain a ports resource crate when defeating an opponent.

The Superior tetsu body lasts for 72,000 charges of combat (a minimum of 12 hours) before degrading and requiring repair. It can be repaired by a Repair NPC or at a player-owned house armour stand for coins, or at the port workbench using plates. A full recharge costs:

Upon death, this item will appear under your gravestone and if killed in the Wilderness it will turn into 1,800,000 coins for the killing player regardless of charge.

Repair cost

The base repair cost of the Superior tetsu body when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 2,400,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
