Warpriest armour are sets of hybrid armour introduced with World events. The sets all have three tiers - requiring level 25, 50, and 75 Defence - and will automatically adjust up to the highest level available to the wearer. Each set also has a set effect. The highest level sets are members only. The level 25 and 50 sets are usable in free-to-play, though there is currently no way to obtain any of the sets in free-to-play.
The Saradomin and Zamorak sets were introduced with the first world event, the Battle of Lumbridge, and have a chance of reducing incoming damage. The Armadyl and Bandos sets were introduced with the second world event, The Bird and the Beast, and have a chance of reducing ability cooldown. The Tuska set was introduced with the third world event, Tuska Comes, and has a chance to increase damage.
The chance of the effect activating varies with the number of parts worn (the parts can be mixed as long as the set effect is the same e.g. Saradomin and Zamorak parts can be mixed) - though at least three parts of the same set effect must be worn.
All warpriest armours can be stored in the armour case in a player-owned house. If the option doesn't show up when trying to store all 6 pieces of one of the armour sets, then make sure they all are set into the same level. If, per example, 5 pieces are set to level 75 and the sixth piece is set to level 25, then it is not possible to store the set. To change the level the piece of armour needs to be equipped.
All sets have the same equipped bonuses; the difference is the set effects and the place to obtain the sets.
Tier 1 (Defence 25–49)
Tier 2 (Defence 50–74)
Tier 3 (Defence 75+) (m)
Saradomin and Zamorak warpriest
Saradomin and Zamorak warpriest sets were first available during the Battle of Lumbridge world event. They can now be obtained as drops from Saradomin or Zamorak aligned monsters in the God Wars Dungeon. They were also purchasable during the Tuska Comes world event. If lost, they must be re-obtained from the God Wars Dungeon. Players that bought them during the Battle of Lumbridge have a significantly higher drop chance of the parts that they bought.
The set effect of Saradomin and Zamorak warpriest grants a 1% chance per piece worn to reduce damage to (10 - number of parts)%. For example, when wearing 6 parts, there is a 6% chance that damage will be reduced to 4% of its initial damage - a hit of 10,000 would be reduced to 400. At least three parts must be worn for the set effect to activate.
Armadyl and Bandos warpriest
Armadyl and Bandos warpriest sets were first available during The Bird and the Beast world event. They can now be obtained as drops from Armadyl or Bandos aligned monsters in the God Wars Dungeon. They were also purchasable during the Tuska Comes world event. If lost, they must be re-obtained from the God Wars Dungeon. Players that bought them during the world event have a significantly higher drop chance of the parts that they bought.
The set effect of Armadyl and Bandos warpriest grants a chance to reduce the cooldown of an ability by 15%. This only applies to abilities with a cooldown of 30 seconds or longer. The activation chance is 5% when wearing 3 pieces, 10% when wearing 5 pieces, and 20% when wearing 6 pieces.
The set effect of Tuska warpriest grants a 1% chance per piece worn to force a critical hit (95–100% of maximum hit for that attack). At least three parts must be worn for the set effect to activate. This does not stack with the Biting perk, and will override its effects, regardless of which one is stronger.
The Saradomin, Zamorak, Armadyl, and Bandos warpriest sets all have golden variants. They were available as prizes in Balthazar's Big Raffle in September 2014, September 2017 and September 2018. Outside of the raffle they cannot be obtained and cannot be reclaimed if lost. They function identically to their normal variants, but they only exist in the tier 75 variant.
