The Virtus mask is a part of the Virtus robes set that is worn in the head slot, requiring level 80 in Magic and 75 Defence to wear. It is available to use on a beta world as part of the DT2 Rewards Beta after having passed the relevant consultation poll, where players can playtest it in various content before a second poll is brought forward to ask players whether they'd like the item to be implemented in the live game as a reward from completing the quest Desert Treasure II.

Each piece of Virtus robes give a 4% magic damage bonus towards Ancient Magicks spells, while wearing the full set grants buffs to each of the four spell types:

  • Smoke spells reduce the target's healing by 30% whilst poisoned.
  • Shadow spells lowers the target's Strength, Ranged, Magic, and Defence levels (in addition to Attack).
  • Blood spells can heal up to 20% over the user's base Hitpoints.
  • Ice spells have a 10% accuracy bonus towards an immobilised target.

Historical[edit | edit source]

Virtus robes was one of the original rewards from Nex upon its release in RuneScape. Compared to Old School RuneScape's version of the Virtus mask, the original had several differences:

  • Having the robes equipped made all factions in the God Wars Dungeon unaggressive, rather than just Zarosian NPCs.
  • The robes did not have a magic damage bonus for Ancient Magicks spells, nor did it have a passive effect.
  • The robes required level 80 Hitpoints in addition to Magic and Defence.
  • The mask boosted Hitpoints by a 66 life points, equal to 6.6 Hitpoints.
  • The robes degraded, lasting for 15 hours of combat. When fully degraded, the base repair costs for the mask was 500,000 coins.
  • The mask had the following bonuses:
