Verac's plateskirt is melee armour worn in the legwear slot that is part of Verac the Defiled's set of Barrows equipment. To wear Verac's plateskirt, a player must have 70 Defence.

Verac's plateskirt provides the same amount of melee protection as Dharok and Torag's platelegs with a marginally lower amount of ranged protection. However, it does not penalise the wearer's magic defence, provides a substantial prayer bonus (+4) and weighs less than most leg armour.

If Verac's plateskirt is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Verac's set, the player receives the Defiler set effect. With this set effect active, player attacks have a chance (averaging 1/4) of hitting through an opponent's defence and prayer entirely. This effect can be devastating towards tank opponents who rely on high defence. With this set effect, Verac's flail can be considered one of the best weapons for certain PvM situations.

For more details on the mechanics and strategies for this equipment, see the set page.

Degradation[edit | edit source]

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again. Barrows armour degrades even if the player is using protection prayers or not taking damage. Barrows equipment does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. Fully repaired Barrows items start out with no numbers in their names, e.g. Verac's plateskirt. It will become Verac's plateskirt 100 the first time it's used in combat. Eventually it will degrade to Verac's plateskirt 75, then 50, then 25 and finally 0 at which point the armour will be unusable until repaired. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded.

When dropped or lost on death, any piece of Barrows equipment will automatically degrade to 0. Players who attempt to drop Barrows equipment will receive a warning message about this.

There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.

The following NPCs can repair the armour:
