A player wearing fully charged battle robes.

Battle robes are a set of robes from the Fist of Guthix minigame, made up of a hood, top, and bottom. While the complete set of battle robes is worn, there is a good chance that the robes will supply Mind, Chaos, Death or Blood runes when casting a combat spell.

The robes degrade over time similar to the Barrows equipment, and may only be traded when completely degraded. The Battle robes require 60 magic and 50 defence to wear. The Battle robes are available for members only.

Although they do give a better chance of producing you mind/chaos/death/blood runes, in a single cast it will only produce one type of these runes, such as only the chaos/death runes in an ancient combat cast. Also, it may not provide all of that type used, but when activated, will provide at least 1 of these runes. When they do activate, they give the message "Your spell draws some of its destructive power from your robes."

From a test involving 114 spell casts including Ice Rush, Ice Burst, Wind Bolt, Wind Blast, Wind Wave and Fire Wave, casted on a variety of monsters from Guards to Suqahs to Ice warriors, only 15% of these spell were supplemented with runes. The monster and spell cast had no effect on when the set effect activated or to what extent (except of course how many runes could be supplied maximum). With regards to token cost then, these robes are much more inefficient that the Combat robes. However, they do have better defensive stats than Combat robes and Druidic mage robes.

Trivia

  • On the back of the Battle robe top there appears to be a Guthixian symbol. However, the same symbol can be seen in enchanted robe top, and could also refer to Sliske, a Zarosian mahjarrat. Purple has been identified as the colour of Zaros, whose items in the game (Ancient hymnal, Ancient staff) are combat related.
