Time limit?[edit source]

Hi, I was wondering, does any1 know if the time limit is for while worn, or while used in combat, like barrows. I want to know cos if it's whilst worn at any time, then the price had bvetter go VERY low. Also, does any1 know if u can wear it on non pvp worlds, or just pvp 1s?????ty --SmithingZilenserztalk!

You can wear for 15 minutes of combat if your defence level is between 20 and 77 (i.e. 20≤def≤77) or one hour if your defence is over level 78 (78≤def), while in combat. Like barrows equipment, wearing/wielding only does not count toward this limit (e.g. you wear it for 10 minutes, have a five minute battle with someone, then wear in GE for an hour - you will have used only 5 minutes of your time). As for non-PvP worlds... I'm not sure. I don't see why not. However, I have not used these items, so don't take my word as law until it is proved by someone else.

I stand corrected - there are two versions of the items - one corrupt version lasting 20 minutes and one "normal version lasting 1 hour. Clarified in article. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:51, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Merges[edit source]

I propose that the corrupt and normal versions of the armour/weaponry are merged. The only difference between the two is the time you can use it for and it's price on the GE. That could easily be put as a note or infobar into one article. The same with Vesta's Equipment, Statius's Equipment, Zuriel's Equipment and Morrigan's Equipment - all the information is listed on this page, quite possibily in a better way. Just make those pages into redirects. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:51, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

  • I was able to buy Corrupted Morrigan’s Javelins and Throwing Axe and I can confirm they have no special attack, at least last I looked. This may only be for these corrupted ones, since for corrupted thrown weapons would only save money if both have special attack. Bio 15:07, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Help[edit source]

the corrupts weapons dont have spec att? Or it is a exception to morrigan's javelin?? Thanks :D

Pictures of the armour being worn[edit source]

To be honest, they will be difficult to get. Not everyone wants to waste several million coins just to take a picture of themselves wearing the equipment. Even getting a picture of someone else wearing the armour will be hard, unless you come across a player who just happens to be wearing full Statius for the heck of it.  Tien  14:35, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

Does anyone know if the weapons still degrade if they're in your INVENTORY. Like, if you've already used it in combat, will they still degrade if you're not wearing it?  Tien  22:42, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

No, they will not degrade while in your inventory. Tydude187 04:06, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Corrupt Vs. Normal[edit source]

Just wondering if anyone has tested this, the examine info for the corrupt version of each item states that "This item decays while worn, and will turn to dust." while the non-corrupt version examine info reads "This item degrades in combat, and will turn to dust." So does the non-corrupt version not decay while worn and only in combat? (Like barrows armour) Tydude187 04:20, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

armour for looks?[edit source]

can you wear the armour, but never use it for combat; will it still degrade? Firemaking cape (t).png rida81 Quest point cape.png 15:46, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

You can. It only degrades while you are in combat, not while standing around [[File:]] User talk Evil Yanks Contribs [[File:]] 09:35, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Once you are hit with the armor on, it will start to degrade,even if you got hit once and it did 0 damage.Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 09:59, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

30seconds[edit source]

30 seconds is a bit steep, are you sure it's not 30 MINUTES? --Ringmaster hat.png Celtic-Creations Talk to me Dragon hatchet.png 11:12, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

30 seconds what? Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 11:17, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

"Warning!: Once you use or wear/wield any of these items for longer than 30 seconds, they will have the word (deg) added to their name and they become untradeable." --Ringmaster hat.png Celtic-Creations Talk to me Dragon hatchet.png 13:18, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it's 30 seconds, to prevent players from buying the equipment, using it for the safe time period (in your example, 30 minutes) and then sell the armour back before it's too late, then buy it again... the limit is 30 seconds because that prevents players from using it in combat without degrading.--Runerune239 19:22, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

corrupt statius[edit source]

I was wondering does corrupt statius degrade while you're just wearing it or does it degrade when you're fighting with it? And do you have to be in the wilderness to equip it?

I don't know about it degrading, but you can use/equip it outside the wilderness (some sets are used fighting the corporal beast). --Slayer-icon.pngJohnGlaveSlayer helmet.png 20:13, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

It degrades while worn - so even if u never fight with it, it will only last for 15mins!

Wrong bonusses[edit source]

Could someone who owns the sets have a look at the bonusses? The totals are definitely wrong for Statius, and the bonusses for the individual pieces are not the same as stated in their respective articles. Dimchord 11:17, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Why would it be DEFINITELY wrong? That's their real bonuses... My 1337 b0w1337rng3r|Talk Har har, my wikia bird, T-Hawk! 11:20, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
All I meant is that the bonuses of the complete sets were not the same as the sum of the pieces. I have fixed it, assuming the bonuses for the individual pieces are correct. Herblore-icon.pngDimchordtalkSlayer-icon.png 15:45, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

Information about degradation of PVP items[edit source]

I was always curious about the way Ancient Warriors' equipment degraded, and I noticed that this article, and anything else I ever looked into, is not at all clear about the actual way in which it degrades. I just recently got really into the topic because I had degraded two SWH's (one seriously degraded, the other brand new), and they ended up stacking in my bank, leaving me confused as to which one was which. So, I took it upon myself to do some in-depth testing on it, and I recorded my process on the official RS forums. (QFC: 17-18-667-63457813)

I ended up figuring out just how degradation affected the items if you have more than one, and I was wondering how my results could be worked into this article, as I'm sure others have the same curiosities that I do. The final results are on the third post of the second page of that forum post, if anyone experienced in editing articles could take a look at it, that'd be great, thanks.
