Rune equipment

From Old School RuneScape Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
A player with rune armour equipped.

Rune equipment are items made from runite metal and is the best equipment in free-to-play worlds. It is stronger than adamant equipment, but weaker than dragon equipment. Rune equipment can be distinguished by the metal's cyan colour. Rune armour requires 40 Defence to wield; weapons require 40 Attack.

Originally, rune equipment was widely criticised as being "too expensive", especially to free players. However, in recent times, due to rapidly falling prices, the vast majority of players can afford a full set of rune by the time they meet the equip requirements. Variations of rune armour, such as trimmed, gold-trimmed, gilded, heraldic, or armour in the colour of the gods are awarded completing clue scrolls. These were originally incredibly rare, but developer expansions and the increased popularity of the Treasure Trails minigame have led to an abundance of these items.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

Rune weapons require an Attack level of 40 to wield. They are the best weapons available to free players.

Armour[edit | edit source]

Rune armour is the highest-quality non-degradable armour that free-to-play players can wear, and the second-highest quality armour on the standard metallic armour spectrum (bronze to dragon). Rune armour requires 40 Defence to wear and Dragon Slayer I to wear the rune platebody, but only 40 Defence to wear all other pieces (thus, Dragon Slayer I need not be completed). With a full set costing around 129,911 coins, the armour provides excellent Defence for its price, making it the best choice for warriors with level 40 Defence.

Other[edit | edit source]

Ornamental rune armour, such as heraldic, trimmed, god armour, and gilded armour have the same bonuses as standard rune armour, with the addition of a +1 prayer bonus on god armour. These can be obtained from the member's only Treasure Trails minigame. These armour sets are often worn by more wealthy players due to their looks and price.

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

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All the god, trimmed, heraldic, and gilded versions of rune have the same exact stats as regular rune; it is only a different colour. God armour, however, has a +1 Prayer bonus per piece.
  • Rune claws and throwing axes are the only rune weapons to have a special attack.
  • When the concept of Rune armour was first developed, the initial colour was supposed to be purple, however this was later changed.
