A player with black armour equipped.

Black equipment are items made from black metal. Black equipment is stronger than steel equipment, yet weaker than mithril equipment. As the name suggests, the equipment is black in colour. Black armour requires 10 Defence to wield, melee weapons require 10 Attack to wield and ranged weapons 10 Ranged. Black equipment is almost identical to white equipment, unlocked after the Wanted! quest, however, white equipment is member's only and has a slight Prayer bonus.

A set of black armour is used in the King's Ransom quest and in Heroes' Quest (helmet, platebody and platelegs). In Heroes' Quest, you will only need the black armour if you're part of the Black Arm Gang. For King's Ransom, a black plateskirt will also suffice instead of the platelegs.

Black items cannot be smithed.

Other[edit | edit source]

Ornamental black armour, such as heraldic and trimmed, have the same bonuses as standard black armour. These can be obtained from the member's only Treasure Trails minigame.

Note: Other players cannot trim or bless armour. Players claiming to do so are scammers.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A number of monsters drop black armour. Regular Black Knights, however, do not drop any black items at all.
  • Black armour is an occasional reward from Level 1 Treasure Trails.
