    • Ores mined from concentrated gold deposits whilst wearing the Varrock armour platebody will now count towards the relevant Mining challenge.

    • Smithing with the Varrock Tasks reward armour now takes coal from a coal bag when the double bars effect takes place.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before the Personalised Shops update, this armour gave better prices in stores throughout Varrock. This was replaced with the benefits affecting the skull sceptre.
  • Some players often wear this armour along with bronze hasta, Tyras helm, and Fremennik or mirror shield in order to look like Spartan warriors.
  • None of the Varrock Armour will affect the speed of smelting cannonballs.
  • When using the coal trucks if you get double coal one will go to truck and the other will go into your backpack.
  • The armour appears to lack sleeves. When equipped, however, the player's arms become tan. This is likely a bug defaulting to white skintones.
