Proselyte armour is a set of armour associated with the Temple Knights. It can be obtained from Sir Tiffy Cashien in Falador after completing The Slug Menace. The quest is a requirement for wearing the set, along with 30 Defence and 20 Prayer. It has the same stats as its mithril armour counterpart (except for the Prayer bonus).
The armour consists of only three pieces of plate armour, offering either legs (cuisse) or a skirt (tasset). Proselyte armour, when combined with Dragon Rider gloves, Dragon Rider boots, illuminated god books, explorer's ring, dragon rider amulet, and completionist cape, will give the highest Prayer bonus amongst melee armour.
Proselyte armour is also a popular substitute for more expensive armour as it provides reasonably good Defence bonuses and offers a notable Prayer bonus.
A full set of the armour can be stored in the armour case of a player-owned house.
- A Knight in the Darkness ( 15) – Ascend the Dark Wizards' Tower while wearing full proselyte armour.
- Traitorous ( 30) – Defeat Commander Zilyana whilst wearing a full set of Proselyte Armour. Can only be completed in a solo instance.
- When Proselyte armour first came out, it was mistakenly made a free-to-play item. Free players could obtain Proselyte armour from another player through trade, but not wear it.
- Unlike most melee armours with the typical 'metallic' model, wearing Proselyte armour has no effect on the arrow-gathering ability of Ava's Attractor, suggesting that it may not be made out of metal.
- The biblical term Proselyte refers to a convert from Paganism to Judaism in the New Testament.
