For the armour type, see platebody.

Plate is a trade good obtained from the Player-owned port minigame. It is a reward from completing voyages upon reaching the Hook region. It is used to create Tetsu armour and their respective weapons. Players can gain plate from The Missionary and The Convict storylines, special voyages offered by The Whaler and the Memory, and some standard voyages. If a player wishes to 'farm' plate, it is recommended to build two Whaler and one Biologist statue, and use their joint mission.

The maximum number of Plates a player can store at one time is 250. Any successful voyages after this will not increase the total.

Players may also buy individual units in the form of ports plate packs from Boni on Waiko after the miniquest Impressing the Locals. These cost 2 taijitu and 1,000 chimes each, and are the only way to earn plate outside of Player-Owned Ports.

Assuming GE price, each plate unit can be valued at 39,828.
