Tempest equipment

Tempest equipment is untradeable, degradable, level 90 ranged tank armour, available from Raids. It comes in normal and superior (Achto) versions. Note that although degradable, the armour doesn't degrade in Raids. Both sets can trigger the ability to reset all Defensive ability cooldowns.

Normal version[edit | edit source]

The normal version is purchasable from the armoursmith with teci. It has 100,000 charges of combat, and will degrade to dust when those charges are depleted.

Achto version[edit | edit source]

The superior version is available as a rare reward from Beastmaster Durzag and Yakamaru that gives bonus damage if a shield or shieldbow is wielded. The base drop chance is doubled if pieces of the normal set are owned. The normal piece does not have to be worn for the increased chance.[1]

Armour gained from Beastmaster Durzag goes in the following part order: Boots > Gloves > Helm > Legs > Body.

Armour gained from Yakamaru goes in the following part order: Gloves > Boots > Helm > Legs > Body.[2]

The first achto equipment gained of each armour part is based on the combat style the player dealt the most damage with during the kill. In order to receive other achto parts, players must collect all three of the previous achto equipment in order to collect (If a player wanted an Achto Primeval robe top, they would have to get all Achto Tempest, Primeval and Teralith gloves, boots, helm and legs).

Durzag's boot drop chance is higher than Yakamaru's[3], while Yakamaru's gloves drop chance is higher than Durzag's.[3]

Degradation and repair[edit | edit source]

Raids equipment degrades as it is used outside of raids. Equipment received from the raids is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat (minimum time around 17 hours) 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. The remaining charges of raids equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.

There are two ways to repair raids armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price in coins, or they can repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. (While the newspost states that teci can be used, this is not the case.) 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
raids equipment
NPC POH Armour Stand
Level 1 Smithing Level 99 Smithing
Helm 1,600,000 1,592,000 808,000
Body 3,200,000 3,184,000 1,616,000
Legs 2,400,000 2,388,000 1,212,000
Boots 400,000 398,000 202,000
Gloves 400,000 398,000 202,000
Total 8,000,000 7,960,000 4,040,000
The price is exactly 50% when operating a Smithing cape.
