Dharok's platebody: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Dharok's platebody is melee armour worn in the body slot that is part of Dharok the Wretched's set of barrows equipment. To wear Dharok's platebody, a player must have 70 Defence. It is currently tied with Guthan's platebody and Torag's platebody for being the strongest in the game.

Being part of Dharok's barrows set, if Dharok's platebody is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Dharok's barrows set the player receives a special effect. Attacks do more damage as the player's Hitpoints decrease, up to double damage at 10% hitpoints. Although the degrading deters many poorer players, it takes around 5 hours to degrade from 100 to 75, and is relatively cheap to repair. The cheapest yet is to simply sell it to Grand Exchange and use that money to buy a new one.

It can be bought either as individual item or as part of the "Barrows - dharok's set" item, in both case this can happen either on the Grand Exchange or via player-to-player trading.

Recent Price History

As with many items that closely relate to combat, Dharok's Platebody experienced a sharp rise in price in the lead up to the PvP worlds update, with its daily average price rising above 235K. Roughly 3-4 days after the update had been released, once the hype had passed, the price sharply fell back to around 208k where it was for all of 2008 until January 2009, where the price rose sharply over the month at a stunningly fast rate to a market price of 339k. These days, the platebody's market price is among 600k


As with all Barrows equipment, this item cannot be made using the Smithing skill.

Like all Barrows armour, Dharok's platebody can be fixed at Bob's Axes in Lumbridge. For this item it costs 90k when fully broken and can also be fixed at a Player-owned house workshop on the armour stand for a cheaper price depending on the player's smithing level. The following table summarises the repair costs for Barrow's items.
