This page ranks the various armour sets in the combat beta. Items of the same tier have the same stats, but of different armour classes. For example, a dragon platebody has the same stats as a black dragonhide top and a grifolic poncho, but they are melee, Ranged, and Magic armors respectively.

Armour tiers[edit | edit source]

Hover your mouse cursor over the tier numbers on the left to see the level requirements for that tier's equipment. Additionally, you can hover your mouse cursor over each item in the table to see its armour and lifepoint bonuses.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n There is currently a bug on some tier 9 equipment in the beta that causes its stats to display differently depending on whether you view its stats in the equipment screen or in the tooltip. For example, Armadyl helmets have 296 armour according to the equipment screen and 300 armour according to the tooltip. This table assumes the round number to be correct.
  2. ^ a b c The arcane, divine, and elysian spirit shields have a special effect that reduces damage received at the expense of prayer points. However, their stats are the same as other shield(s) of their tier, other than that these shields also carry a small prayer bonus.
  3. ^ a b c Dharok's, Guthan's, Torag's, and Verac's armour all give the same defensive stats. However, Verac's armour also gives a prayer bonus.
  4. ^ a b c d e f g The gloves available from the Culinaromancer's chest after Recipe for Disaster are cross-class gloves with slightly lower stats than class-specific gloves of equivalent tiers. Currently there are no melee-specific gloves for tiers 1 through 8 in the beta, so Culinaromancer's gloves are the closest thing to melee gloves.
  5. ^ a b c As all Barrows sets have two-handed weapons, it wouldn't make sense to include a shield. The exception is Ahrim's wand, but the existence of Ahrim's book of magic rectifies this.
  6. ^ a b c Akrisae's robes give the same defensive stats as well as a prayer bonus.
  7. ^ a b c d e Currently, neither blue nor red dragonhide armour fits on tier 6. Blue dragonhide is too weak and red dragonhide is too strong. As I do not know their equipment requirements, I cannot include either in tier 6.
  8. ^ a b c Proselyte armour gives the same defensive bonuses as mithril, but also confers a substantial Prayer bonus.

Items which haven't been tested[edit | edit source]

  • Royal dragonhide armour (tested, equal to third-age)
  • Granite armor (tested, equal to red dragonhide)
  • Fremennik armor: Rockshell, skeletal, spined, etc
    • Also, the Fremennik helms (warrior, berserker, archer, seers')
  • Third-age armour (need stat confirmation on range and mage sets)
  • PvP hybrid armor (tested)
  • TokTz-Ket-Xil (tested, equivalent to dragon kiteshield)
  • Alternative melee armor items (namely med helms, sq shields, chainbodies, plateskirts)
  • Snakeskin armour (tested, equivalent to carapace)
  • Mercenary's gloves
  • Clue scroll boots (wizard, ranger)
  • Ghostly robes (tested, currently have NO stats)
  • All Elemental Workshop equipment
  • Fist of Guthix robes
  • Infinity robes (tested, equal to batwing)
  • Lunar armour (tested, equal to grifolic)

Items which exist outside the standard tier system[edit | edit source]

  • Ancient Warriors' equipment is on its own tier between 9 and 10, presumably requiring level 78, but it doesn't have gloves/boots/shields so I haven't included it in the table.
  • Blue and red dragonhide do not correspond with existing tiers; red dragonhide is too strong to be included in tier 6, whereas blue dragonhide is too weak.
  • It appears that Third Age equipment is level 65 equipment, which places it between tiers 7 and 8 in stats.
  • Granite armour is equivalent to red dragonhide, at (theoretically) level 55. However, there is no Magic equivalent.
  • Steadfast, glaiven, and ragefire boots are level 85 equipment, which ought to place them on such a tier. However, no other level 85 armour currently exists to fill the tier.
