The corrupt dragon plateskirt was released on 15 October 2008 along with PvP worlds. It is the strongest plateskirt available to non-members, but it crumbles to dust after 30 minutes of wearing. Because of this, the skirt (along with most other corrupt dragon armour) is often sold as soon as a player obtains it. It requires 60 Defence to wear. For free players however, this is a marginally better choice of leg armour, as it is as strong as the dragon plateskirt, corrupt dragon platelegs, and non-corrupt dragon platelegs, except slightly cheaper.
Players can obtain this item either by trading with another player, or by receiving it as a very rare drop from killing Revenants or the Chaos Elemental.
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 136,494 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 50,688 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.
