A female player wearing the elite black armour set
Elite black armour is a set of equipment worn by the elite members of the Kinshra. Parts of the set are dropped by the Elite Black Knights that are encountered during the quest While Guthix Sleeps. Level 40 Defence is required to wear this armour, which is the lowest-level melee Power armour set.
Elite black armour can be used in place of normal black armour when attacking the tormented wraith.
The quest While Guthix Sleeps does not need to be completed or even started to wear this armour. Buying the armour set costs more than the total cost of each individual part, so most players buy each piece separately.
This set can be stored in the armour case to free up space in the bank.
