Animated rune armour is found at the Warriors' Guild and is the most powerful animated armour in the Animated Armour activity. In order to summon it, you must place a rune full helm, a rune platebody and rune platelegs on the magical animator. This is one of the quickest ways to earn tokens overall, and depending on the player's accuracy, defeating Animated Rune is the fastest way to obtain them.

Low-levelled players are advised to bring food and wear stab-resistant armour, since this is the highest level animated armour. The player will get all of their rune armour parts back when it is defeated; however, any armour below black will have a chance to lose pieces. Like all other animated armour variants, it is immune to ranged and magic attacks.

When the armour is placed on the magical animator, this text appears via a dialogue box:

You place your armour on the platform where it disappears....

The animator hums, something appears to be working. You stand back...

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Players are advised to use a strong weapon with the crush style attack, as the animated rune armour is weak to crush type attacks. The Viggora's chainmace (u), Sarachnis cudgel, Saradomin sword, and abyssal bludgeon feature substantial crush bonuses with a 4 tick attack speed. The dragon hasta and leaf-bladed battleaxe are good budget options, although the latter is slightly slower. Lower levelled players might opt for a dragon battleaxe or mace. Non-crush weapons such as the abyssal whip, dragon longsword or dragon scimitar will work fine if your Attack level is high enough (85 or higher is recommended), but will not provide as fast a kill rate as crush-based attacks due to the armour's high stab and slash defence.

You could also safespot the animated rune armour by using a halberd, preferably a crystal halberd. You can use any type of halberd, as long as you have the required stats. After the armour spawns, run to the spot shown in the image to the left. The animated armour will be trapped next to the platform, allowing you to attack it without taking any damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Even though players only used the needed pieces to create the animated armour, it wields a rune longsword. It is unknown where this came from.
  • Despite wielding a rune longsword, its offensive bonuses and attack speed are equivalent to a bronze sword.
