Concept art of the master archaeologist's outfit.

The master archaeologist's outfit is an Archaeology elite skilling outfit obtained as a reward from the Archaeology Guild Shop. Accessing the section of the shop requires completion of the Qualification - Guildmaster achievement. Thus, it requires level 99 Archaeology to obtain and use. Outfit pieces can be purchased for 50,000 chronotes each for a total of 250,000 chronotes. The full outfit has an equivalent cost of 45,250,000 coins. The full set is required to complete the Writings on the Walls mystery.

If lost, the outfit can be retrieved from Diango's Item Retrieval at no cost.

Set effects[edit | edit source]

When the full set is worn, it has the following effects:

  • 1% base Archaeology experience boost
  • An additional 1% experience boost for each piece of the regular archaeologist's outfit owned
  • 7% increase to excavation success rate
  • 7% increase to screening success rate
  • 7% increase to mattock base precision
  • Increased speed when restoring artefacts (4.8 seconds taken per artefact, down from 6)
  • Increased speed when screening soil (1.2 seconds taken per soil, down from 1.8)
  • Increased durations by 50% for material manuals, hi-spec monocles, tarpaulin sheets, and archaeologist's tea (30 minutes up from 20 minutes)
  • 3 uses per day of the Fixate spell which guarantees an artefact of the player's choice from an excavation (this resets with the daily reset)
  • Unlimited teleports to archaeological dig sites and collectors
  • Ability to see strange writings
