Decorative armour

Decorative armour is obtainable from Castle Wars with silver and gold Castle wars tickets. There are four types available: Basic decorative equipment, Detailed decorative equipment, Intricate decorative equipment, and Profound decorative equipment. They are all different colours and offer different stats, with Basic armour being the lowest-levelled and Profound the highest.

Previously, there were only three sets of armour available. On 27 May 2010, they were upgraded to their current appearance and a fourth set, Profound, was added. Each complete set includes a helm, platebody, platelegs, shield, and sword.

Assuming you win Castle Wars 50% of the time, including the 5 minutes of waiting per round in the waiting room, it would take roughly 72 days of non-stop playing to achieve a full Profound set.
