Corrupt dragon chainbody detail.png

The corrupt dragon chainbody was released on 15 October 2008 along with the PvP worlds. It is the strongest chainbody available to non-members, but it crumbles to dust after 30 minutes of wearing. It requires 60 Defence to wear.

Most free players choose not to use corrupt dragon armour due to its degradation and high cost. However, in a player vs. player situation, it is the best armour for countering the commonly used gravite 2h sword.

Warning: Once equipped for longer than a few seconds, it will have the word (deg) added to its name and it becomes untradeable. Using this item in combat adds the (deg) to its name almost instantly, also rendering it untradeable. If allowed to degrade to dust, it costs 140,900 per hour to use.

Once it starts degrading, its alchemy value is immediately reduced to 60%. By using an external timer, players can keep track of how long the item has been used (pausing the timer when it is unequipped). Assuming use of staff of fire or equivalent, high alching it right before it degrades to dust would cost 55,652 per hour of use (slightly higher in practice, as it would be wise to err on the side of caution and leave a bit of spare usage time remaining). Explorer's ring 4 is helpful as it can cast High Level Alchemy for free 15 times per day and is also the strongest F2P ring in combat.
