|Examine||A Penance Fighter torso armour.|
The fighter torso (called the Penance torso in the Barbarian Assault rewards shop) is a piece of armour that requires 40 Defence to wear and is rewarded from the Barbarian Assault minigame. It can be purchased from Commander Connad in exchange for 375 honour points in all four roles and one Penance Queen kill. Players who do not want it may sell it back to Commander Connad for 300 honour points in all four roles by using it on him.
If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory but will be unusable and must be repaired with 50,000 coins by using it on Perdu or on an Armour stand in a PvP world.
Please note that while this item is obtainable by any player, lower-levelled characters may struggle to fulfil the Barbarian Assault attacker role, as they must be more closely monitored by healers. Thus, attempting to obtain this item with a low Combat level should be done with caution.
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The fighter torso is one of the most popular and frequently used armour pieces for melee training.
Compared to a rune platebody, the fighter torso has slightly lower defence bonuses and greater magic penalties, but has slightly higher slash defence and no negative ranged bonus. However, its primary appeal is that it is tied with both the Bandos chestplate and Inquisitor's hauberk for the highest strength bonus (+4) in the body equipment slot. Due to its strength bonus, it is frequently used for general melee training, where maximising one's damage output takes precedence over defensive bonuses.
Like the other Penance equipment, the fighter torso weighs significantly less than regular armour. This makes it useful for situations such as quests where the player must travel a lot but may be required to fend off some enemies.
Because of its unusually high negative magic attack bonus, it is highly effective for splashing.
Furthermore, the fighter torso is also a good choice of armour for players who wish to avoid completing Dragon Slayer. The fighter torso requires no quests to equip whereas the rune platebody requires the completion of Dragon Slayer.
Because it never degrades, the fighter torso is ideal for melee training and slayer tasks.
Treasure Trails[edit | edit source]
The fighter torso is the item Falo requires players to show him when he sings about: Penance healers runners and more, obtaining this body often gives much deplore.
