Description: Smithing elder rune + 5 items
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

Elder rune equipment consists of tier 80 to 85 armour and weapons made from smithing elder rune metal. Elder rune equipment is not augmentable and degrades to broken. Creating the base armour pieces and upgrading them to + 5 is a requirement to make masterwork equipment, and is a requirement for the completionist cape.

A total of 384 Elder rune bars is required to fully upgrade a complete set of elder rune armour, or 448 if also upgrading the shield.

Upgrading[edit | edit source]

Each piece of elder rune equipment can be upgraded to +1, +2, +3, +4, and +5. Each level requires extra bars equal to the number of bars already used for the previous level. For example, a platebody (5 bars) can be upgraded to +1 using an additional 5 elder rune bars. The platebody+1 can be upgraded to a platebody+2 using 10 additional bars (because the platebody+1 needed a total of 10 bars), etc. The amount of experience gained scales up in the same way.
