White armour set (lg) equipped.png

White equipment or White Knight equipment is a group of members only weapons and armour. They can be purchased from the White Knight Master Armoury, run by Sir Vyvin in the White Knights' Castle. As their name suggests, the equipment is the same equipment used by White Knights. White metal, along with black metal, is a coloured form of steel made by different forging techniques which slightly increases the defensive capability[1]. These techniques produce equipment of equivalent strength.

To wield White Knight equipment the player must have completed the Wanted! quest, and have at least 25 Attack to wield weapons, 25 Defence to wear armour, and 25 Magic to wield the magic staff. It is uncommon to see players wearing White equipment because all players who have completed Wanted! have already completed Recruitment Drive, which provides a superior set of armour, Initiate armour.

Ranks and equipment[edit | edit source]

Having the master rank is one of the requirements needed to get a trimmed completionist cape and the master quest cape.

In order to increase ranking and unlock equipment items, players must kill Black Knights. Black knights killed as a non-member character that has completed Wanted! still count toward the kill count. Each player begins credited with 100 kills at the rank of Novice. Players that have begun While Guthix Sleeps can choose to slay the Elite Black Knights over regular Black Knights. Each one slain counts for 12 regular Black Knights slain. If players kill White Knights, their ranking will decrease. Each White Knight killed removes one Black Knight kill from a player's ranking. Players can check their rank by viewing the entry for Wanted! under their quest journal, or by Quick Chat entry 'FS8'.

A number of White equipment consisting of:

  • White full helm
  • White platebody
  • White platelegs
  • White kiteshield
  • White gauntlets
  • White boots

can be stored in the armour case of player-owned house. However, white armour cannot be packed into set objects.

Method for obtaining ranks[edit | edit source]

Location to stand behind cannon.

A good method to kill lots of Black knights is to go to the Black Knights' Base in the far south of Taverley Dungeon. If possible players can use a Dwarven multicannon to speed up the kills as well as prayers/ancient curses to boost skills or pray for melee. In that case it is also advised to use a Demon horn necklace with a Bonecrusher to keep replenishing prayer points at high rates (this can virtually remove the need for prayer potions). Bringing a Demon executioner summoning familiar with Ring of fire scrolls will speed up kills even more. When in the dungeon, place the cannon 8 squares from the front of the northern entrance, and two squares west of the eastern pillar. Stand 1 square East and 2 squares South of the base of the cannon. Never leave this position.

For high levels

Turn on Torment and Auto Retaliate, and don't move. Let the cannon bring the knights toward the cannon. Fire the cannon and drink potions when needed, occasionally use Soul Split if needed. This method is possible to give 800 kills an hour.

For maxed players, stand at the cannon centre with auto-retaliate on, no need for any prayer, potions or food. Double drygores or chaotic rapiers allow players to Flurry a few times a minute, good for 2-8 kills each time. Using Sacrifice every now and then recovers what little health is lost. Also using the special move Ring of fire of the Demon executioner summoning familiar for 2-20 kills per scroll. Bandos armour or equivalent is more than enough. This method yields 2,000 kills an hour and costs approximately 2,000 cannonballs.

For high levels: Elite Black Knight

By accessing the Black Knights' Catacombs or Lucien's camp, players can kill Elite Black Knights to achieve master rank. This requires at least two attack styles since these Knights can nullify damage from an attack style unless they take damage from another style or prayer wears out after a number of hits. Therefore, a high level combat summoning familiar (that uses attack style you are not using), very high-hitting weapons and spells along with some supply of food are recommended. Equipment and abilities that provide hybrid capacity are recommended. Although high-hitting can possibly one-shot the knights it could waste time if they are not quickly finished, so alternatively fast-hitting weapons and abilities like Corruption Blast can deplete their prayer quickly.

The other monsters although named "Elite" are not counted as knights if killed. Although they do not hit high they also have prayer that make them resilient and pile damage steadly onto the character. Player should focus on killing knights as soon as they respawn.

An example setup would be:

  • Vanquish or Sunspear or ranged and magic weapon
  • Runes for Barrage or Surge spells
  • Lava Titan or similar
This adds up to all three attack styles.
  • Hybrid armour like Armour of Trials or House Drakan outfit
  • Food healing at least 1,000 are recommended
  • Using Revolution, with ability bar with universal and multi-hitting but no combo ability, may add in several abilities from other attack style
    • For example, putting Ricochet and Corruption Shot into active Magic ability bar will be useful here if you switch to ranged weapon for a few hits.
    • Tuska's Wrath and Devotion can deal damage and be used by any attack style.

Achievement[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The number of kills required to achieve each White Knight rank corresponds to the third to eighth numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence multiplied by 100.
  • Although there is no white crossbow, there are crossbows hanging on the wall in the archery store on the Void Knights' Outpost that appear to have white limbs.
  • In RuneScape Classic, White Knights wore steel armour.
  • Sir Amik Varze mentions that the armour can be rebought by the armoury for the same price it is sold; this used to be the case, but since the Personalised Shop Update, it is not, and is bought at a reduced price like other shops.
  • At one point in time, players had to search through dialogue in order to access the White Knight Armoury. This was changed on 6 March 2012, along with several graphical updates - there is now a trade option when right clicking Sir Amik Varze.
  • The Zamorakian black knight and Saradominst white knight kills at the Battle of Lumbridge did not count towards the White Knight ranking system of the Wanted! quest rewards.
