Armadyl armour is a set of armour consisting of the Armadyl helmet, the Armadyl chestplate, the Armadyl chainskirt.

It is dropped by General Kree'arra and his three minions, (Wingman Skree, Flockleader Geerin, and Flight Kilisa) in the God Wars Dungeon. The pieces require 70 Ranged and 70 Defence to wear. The set provides defence bonuses that are only slightly better than those of black d'hide armour, with the exception of the magic defence bonus, which is 38 points higher.

Armadyl armour has high Ranged accuracy bonus and does not degrade. This accuracy makes it better than Void Knight equipment against high defence monsters. It is also preferrable over the degradable Karil's equipment which has lower defensive and offensive stats than Armadyl armour, however Armadyl armour has large negative melee attack bonuses. Therefore, in situations where meleeing in ranged armour to increase Magic Defence, Karil's or black d'hide are the preferrable.

Armadyl armour is most often used for training Ranged, Slayer, and for fighting high-defence bosses. Its Prayer bonus makes it desirable for the Fight Caves and other situations where conserving Prayer points is important. Armadyl armour is also popular for Castle Wars flag running due to its Magic Defence bonus making it more difficult for the opposing team to freeze you with ice spells or Entangle.
