Set items[edit | edit source]

Leather[edit | edit source]

Leather armour is good for beginning rangers. They are very cheap and can also be crafted. It comes in three types:

Frog-leather armour[edit | edit source]

Frog-leather armour is only available to members. Players must have level 25 Ranged and level 25 Defence to wear this armour. Frog-leather armour is made by the Dorgeshuun goblins. This armour is bought from Reldak in Dorgesh-Kaan.

Snakeskin[edit | edit source]

Snakeskin armour is only available to members. Players must have level 30 Ranged and level 30 Defence to wear this armour. Snakeskin armour can be made through the Crafting skill from snakeskin, which can be obtained by killing snakes that appear in the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup, Temple Trekking minigames or by killing snakes at Mos Le'Harmless Island.

The whole snakeskin set is hardly worn by rangers due to the huge amount of snakeskin hides needed. However, the Snakeskin boots and bandana offer most rangers a much cheaper alternative to the highly-priced Ranger boots and Robin hood hat.

Spined armour[edit | edit source]

Spined armour is only available for members and is Fremennik armour for rangers. Players must complete The Fremennik Trials in order to equip the body, legs, and helm. The helm, body, and chaps provide a slight Ranged attack bonus, and have an equip requirement of level 40 Ranged and Defence. Spined armour cannot be bought from stores and instead has to be earned from drops by the Dagannoths under Waterbirth Island. Alternatively, the raw materials can be traded to Sigli the Huntsman, who will create the armour for the player.

Ranger kit[edit | edit source]

Obtained through only completing medium, hard, and elite clue scrolls. 40 Ranged is required to wear them, with no Defence requirement. Aside from the Ranger boots, these are generally unused among players as there are better alternatives. However the Rangers' tunic and Robin hood hat are popular among 1 Defence pures as they provide the highest Ranged bonus without requiring a Defence level.

Dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Dragonhide armour is the most popular and the recommended armour players wear when ranging. Free players can only wear green dragonhide armour, and must complete the Dragon Slayer I quest to wear the body. Blue, red, and black dragonhides are only available to members. Members can also craft dragonhide armour. Trimmed and gold-trimmed versions on green and blue dragonhide armour have the same stats as normal. Trimmed versions cannot be crafted. They can only be obtained through clue scrolls.

Green dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Players must have level 40 Ranged to wear this armour, along with an additional 40 Defence to wear the body and shield.

Blue dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Players must have level 50 Ranged to wear this armour, along with an additional 40 Defence to wear the body and shield.

Red dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Players must have level 60 Ranged to wear this armour, along with an additional 40 Defence to wear the body and shield.

Black dragonhide[edit | edit source]

Players must have level 70 Ranged to wear this armour, along with an additional 40 Defence to wear the body and shield.

Blessed dragonhide[edit | edit source]

There are six types of Blessed d'hide armour, each representing the six gods - Guthix (green), Saradomin (blue), Zamorak (red), Armadyl (white), Bandos (brown), and Ancient (purple). The armour has a +1 Prayer bonus on each piece, and offers improved bonuses over black dragonhide armour. All pieces require 70 Ranged and level 40 Defence except for blessed bracers and blessed chaps, which only require 70 Ranged.

Void Knight equipment[edit | edit source]

Void Knight equipment is obtained from playing the Pest Control minigame. It requires 42 Attack, Strength, Defence, Hitpoints, Ranged, and Magic along with 22 Prayer to buy and wear, for a total of 850 Void Knight commendation points points. When the full set is worn with a Void ranger helm, it increases Ranged accuracy and damage by 10%.

Some players find it more effective to wear other Ranged armour such as Karil's or Armadyl armour due to the superior accuracy and defence bonuses. However where accuracy is not an issue, Void knight equipment performs better due to the increase of damage.

The set effect bonus also stacks with the salve amulet(i)/salve amulet(ei) and Dragon hunter crossbow damage bonuses, making it a popular choice for fighting Vorkath.

Additionally, it classes as a hybrid set, and as such gives equal Magic, Ranged and Melee Defence, thus making it an alternative choice when needing to use multiple combat styles.

Elite Void Knight equipment[edit | edit source]

After completion of the Hard Western Provinces Diary, players can upgrade their Void knight top and robe for 200 Pest Control points each, totalling 400 points. This enhances the set effect by 2.5% in accuracy and damage, totalling 12.5%. The elite pieces also provide a Prayer bonus; the other bonuses remain unchanged.

Crystal[edit | edit source]

Crystal armour can be obtained by combining crystal armour seeds with crystal shards. after completing Song of the Elves. It degrades, requiring more crystal shards to recharge. Each piece provides a damage and accuracy bonus to the crystal bow and bow of Faerdhinen; equipping the full set confers an even greater buff. It requires 70 Defence to wear; 60 Ranged is also required to complete Mourning's End Part I, a prerequisite quest for Song of the Elves.

3rd age[edit | edit source]

3rd age range equipment is high level Ranged armour, and currently the second best non-degradable Ranged armour (just like its Melee and Magic counterparts). 3rd age range armour can be obtained as a very rare reward from hard, elite and master clue scrolls. 3rd age range armour is supposedly made from white dragonhide. It requires 65 Ranged and 45 Defence to wear.

Karil's set[edit | edit source]

Karil the Tainted's set is high level degradable Ranged equipment, obtained as a possible reward from the Barrows minigame. When a player equips the entire set (including Karil's crossbow), attacks have a chance of reducing the opponent's Agility level during PvP combat. If an amulet of the damned is worn alongside the set, when the effect activates, it inflicts an extra hitsplat, dealing more damage. It requires level 70 Ranged and Defence to wear.

Armadyl[edit | edit source]

Armadyl armour is high level Ranged armour, offering some of the best attack and defence bonuses available to Ranged users. It is dropped by Kree'arra and his three bodyguards in the God Wars Dungeon. It requires level 70 Ranged and Defence to wear.

Masori[edit | edit source]

Masori armour is high level Ranged armour, offering the best Ranged attack and Ranged Strength bonuses. It is obtained as a rare loot from Tombs of Amascut. In addition to the normal version, the Masori armour can be fortified, increasing its defensive bonuses to be higher then the Armadyl armour, fortifying requires Armadylean plates and level 90 Crafting. It requires level 80 Ranged and level 30 Defence to wear the normal version but requires level 80 in both Ranged and Defence to wear the fortified version.
