Unlocking masterwork[edit | edit source]

Masterwork armour can only be made after completing the achievement It Should Have Been Called Aetherium - making a full set of elder rune equipment + 5. Upgrading a single piece of armour to + 5 will not unlock the masterwork equivalent. The achievement is a requirement for the completionist cape.

Alloy bars[edit | edit source]

The first step in the creation of masterwork armour is smithing concentrated alloy bars. It takes one bronze, iron, steel, mithril, adamant, rune, orikalkum, necronium, bane and elder rune bar to produce one concentrated alloy bar. A total of 600 of each are required to make a set of masterwork armour. If smithing bars from scratch, 1200 rune bars are needed as 600 of those are a required ingredient for elder rune bars.

The next step is creating enriched alloy bars. Five concentrated alloy bars are required to produce one enriched alloy bar. Once ten enriched alloy bars are made, they can be used to forge an immaculate alloy bar. Twelve immaculate alloy bars are required to make the masterwork armour set.

After smithing an immaculate alloy bar, it must be folded at any anvil to start a partially folded alloy bar which must be folded 1001 times. The bar appears in the inventory and may be stored in the bank or dropped; it cannot be deposited in the metal bank. Moving the mouse pointer over the bar shows the Folding progress: number/1001. The next few steps are the longest parts of smithing masterwork equipment. The smithing process does only 60 folds at a time at 2 game ticks per fold.  Once the alloy bar has been folded 1001 times, it turns into a glorious bar.

Total2,00420.04 (minutes)
Total for set24,0484.008 (hours)

Glorious bars then go through five more long smithing processes:

The first three processes take 10,000 steps or a total of 30,000 steps. The fourth process of tempering the piece takes 1,000 steps, and last process of lining is an instant action if the leather piece is in the inventory. If the unfinished smithing item is at full heat, each hammer strike uses 20 steps, otherwise at no heat, each strike uses 5 steps.

Unfinished masterwork[edit | edit source]

One or more lined masterwork armour pieces are needed to make any single piece of masterwork armour. Once the process is started, an unfinished masterwork armour piece is made for the respective slot. Once an unfinished masterwork armour piece is made, it must be riveted with masterwork rivets (requiring 120 rivets for a full set), made from steel bars. Once riveted, it can be made into the final masterwork armour piece.

Trimmed masterwork[edit | edit source]

Masterwork armour can be upgraded into trimmed masterwork armour, which is tier 92 power armour. This is done by combining masterwork armour parts with masterwork trim, made from elder rune bars, malevolent essence (made from malevolent armour) and praesulic essence (made from Torva armour).

A full set of trimmed masterwork consumes 12 trim, which requires the equivalent of a set of torva and a set of malevolent.

Trimmed masterwork is repaired using a piece of untrimmed masterwork. It additionally has a set effect (turning some incoming damage into a damage-over-time effect instead of a lump sum) and the ability to custom-fit (making the armour permanently untradeable but degrade much more slowly).

Degradation and repair[edit | edit source]

Masterwork armour degrades as it is used. Equipment smithed 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. Additionally, Masterwork armour 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 Masterwork 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

Helm 800,000 796,000 404,000

Boots 400,000 398,000 202,000
Total 4,800,000 4,776,000 2,424,000
The price is exactly 50% when boosted to 100 Smithing

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress - not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 11 March 2019 (Update):
    • A +2 Prayer bonus has been added to the Masterwork gloves and boots.
  • patch 7 January 2019 (Update):
    • At level 99 smithing, smiths can make masterwork armour. This is level 90 power armour which only requires materials from mining to make.
