Guthan's chainskirt is a piece of melee armour that is part of Guthan The Infested's set of barrows equipment and is worn in the legwear slot. To equip Guthan's chainskirt, a player must have 70 Defence. Previously, Guthan's chainskirt was transparent. However, this has since been changed to make the chainskirt completely opaque.
Being part of Guthan's barrows set, if Guthan's chainskirt is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Guthan's barrows set, the player receives its set effect; successful attacks have a chance of replenishing one life point for each life point of damage the player deals to an opponent. This piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
Despite Guthan's having more than average combat stats, it is mostly used by players to heal (and save space that would have been used by bringing food), after which they revert back to their regular melee armour. This method saves money and ultimately puts off having to repair the armour regularly.
- Guthan's chainskirt is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Barrows equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.
There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.
The following NPCs can repair the armour:
|Costs to repair
||POH armour stand
|Level 1 Smithing
||Level 99 Smithing
|The price is exactly 50% when operating a Smithing cape.
