Tectonic armour equipped.png

Tectonic armour is tier 90 degradable magic power armour, made with materials dropped by Vorago (tectonic energy) and purchased from the Wizard's guild or Bandit Duty Free (stones of binding), requiring level 90 Defence to wear. A high Runecrafting level is required to craft this from the raw materials (91-93 Runecrafting, in order of mask, bottom, and robe top, though assists and boosts can be used). It is the magic equivalent to malevolent and sirenic armour.

Tectonic armour degrades for 100,000 charges of combat before falling apart and vanishing completely ('degrades to dust'). It cannot be repaired normally, but two Tectonic armour pieces can be combined to consolidate the charges. The armour is tradeable until it is first worn, and partially worn parts are not tradeable. Once it is worn it is no longer augmentable even if not used. Augmentation dissolvers cannot be used on these items.

Dyed equipment instead turns into a broken state when fully degraded - simply adding tectonic energy to the broken piece will repair it.

Retrieving unprotected parts from a gravestone will cause the part to lose 10% of its charges. Dying in dangerous PvP will drop a fraction of the tectonic energy used to create the part, based on how degraded it was, rounded down - e.g. a mask with 52% charges remaining will drop 7 tectonic energy.

The armour set may be paired with celestial handwraps, which are level 90 magic power gloves, and with hailfire boots, which are level 90 magic power boots.

Tectonic armour that is above 95% charge can be upgraded into Elite tectonic armour through combining the equipment with draconic energies. This applies to dyed tectonic armour as well.

Normal armour[edit | edit source]

Unaugmented Tectonic armour cannot be repaired and degrades to dust, and is automatically destroyed when it reaches 0% charge.

Other players can assist you to craft these items if you don't have the Runecrafting levels.

Augmented armour[edit | edit source]

Creation[edit | edit source]

Augmented Tectonic armour does not lose its perks when it runs out of charge. In order to create it, players must:

  1. Buy or craft a new set of Tectonic armour pieces
  2. Augment the body and legs at an invention workbench with additional materials (listed below)

Repair[edit | edit source]

In order to repair it, players must:

  1. Buy or craft a new set of Tectonic armour pieces
  2. Augment the new body and legs at an invention workbench with additional materials (listed above)
  3. Combine the new body and legs with their existing perked armour. Doing so consumes the new armour pieces and retains all perks of the augmented version.

Dyed[edit | edit source]

Creation[edit | edit source]

Tectonic armour can be recoloured using dyes from Treasure Trails.

It can also be augmented, either by taking the dyed armour pieces to a workbench with additional materials, or by dyeing augmented armour pieces.

Repair[edit | edit source]

Dyed tectonic armour also has 100,000 charges of combat, but degrades to a broken state instead. It can be repaired using tectonic energy.

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!
* update 29 June 2020 (Update):
    • T90 Tectonic armour can be upgraded to T92 Elite tectonic armour if they are at 95% degradation or above. This includes dyed armour.
    • To upgrade augmented armours, right-click/long-press on ancient scales or draconic energy and 'use' them on the armours.
