Armor is worn to help protect oneself from attacks. Different kinds of armor provide different amounts of protection, but no armor can protect you completely. Most armour has disadvantages. For example, metal armor conducts magical energy and makes magic based attacks hit more often.

To learn more about combat, see the combat guide. Also please note in this guide I have considered Full Armour to be 1 Full Helmet, 1 Platebody, 1 Platelegs and 1 Square Shield.

Quest Armor[edit]

KHAZARD ARMOR - This armor is used in Fight Arena. In order to get into the Khazard Battlefield, you must be wearing this armor. However, change into better armor once you begin to fight the Khazard Ogre...

Member only Armor[edit]


The second most expensive armor in the game. Most of the dragon pieces can be obtained from drops from monsters, the med. helmet, chain, legs, and the two handed sword dragon full helm can be obtained from drops. Although as of the release of barbarian assault the chain dragon full helm can be obtained there. The scimitar needs the completion of the Monkey Madness quest, and the longsword needs the Lost City quest (they can both be bought from stores in the unlocked areas). The mace requires the Heroes Quest.

You can also get the left half of the dragon square shield from drops from monsters, you need to buy the other half at the legends guild for 750k. You need 60 smithing to put them both together.
