Black d'hide body detail.png

Black dragonhide body is a part of the black dragonhide armour set. It requires at least level 70 Ranged and 40 Defence to be worn.

It is the strongest standard dragonhide body and is among the most resilient armours against Magic damage. However, Blessed dragonhide armour provides higher defensive stats while maintaining the same offensive stats.

Due to its effectiveness relative to its low cost, it is a very commonly used piece of armour in the Wilderness, however not as ubiquitous as it used to be since the stats were reduced.

Although players must complete Dragon Slayer I in order to wear the green d'hide body, completion of this quest is not required to equip the blue, red or black dragonhide bodies.
