Dragon platebody detail.png

A dragon platebody is the product of combining a dragon chainbody, dragon metal lump, and dragon metal shard at the Dragon Forge. This process requires 90 Smithing and grants 2,000 Smithing experience.

The dragon platebody requires the completion of Dragon Slayer I and level 60 Defence to wear. It offers some of the highest bonuses of any non-degradable armour in the game, providing higher slash and stab defence than the Bandos chestplate. For melee use it is a direct upgrade to the dragon chainbody in every stat except crush, with the chainbody having +1 crush defence more than the platebody. Despite its high defensive bonuses however, the dragon platebody lacks a strength bonus, making the platebody less commonly used for general melee training.

Players can attach a dragon platebody ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to create a gold-trimmed dragon platebody (g). This is only cosmetic, and does not affect the platebody's stat bonuses. It can be dismantled, returning the platebody and ornament kit.
