Animated Runite Armour is found at the Warriors' Guild and is the most powerful Animated Armour in the Animated Armour activity. In order to summon it, you must put a Rune full helm, a Rune platebody and Rune platelegs on the Magical Animator. This is one of the quickest ways to get tokens. Low-levelled players are advised to bring food and wear stab-resistant armour. It is the Highest level Animated armour. The player may not get all of their Rune armour parts back when it is defeated; however, the better defensive bonuses the armour provides, the lower the chances of losing 1 or more parts. You cannot use magic or ranged to kill the armour as they will always hit zero.
Even though you get 80 Warrior Guild Tokens for fighting Animated Rune Armour, it is not recommended as some parts may break during fighting. If you are wealthy, and capable of buying more Rune armour, you can then fight it with smaller fear of losing a part.
Players are advised to use a strong weapon with the Crush style attack, such as the Chaotic maul, Goliath gloves, or the Saradomin Sword on crush, as the Animated Rune Armour is weak to Crush type attacks. Lower levelled players might opt for a Dragon battleaxe or mace.
Another good way to fight the Animated Rune Armour is by using a halberd, preferably a dragon halberd. You can use any type of halberd (as long as you have the required stats). After the armour spawns, run to the opposite side of the platform it spawned from, and then to the side you have not run past already. The Animated Armour will be trapped next to the platform, which you can stand on the opposite side of and attack the armour without taking any damage.
Item Quantity Rarity GE Market Price Rune full helm 1 Always 20,681 Rune platebody 1 Always 38,924 Rune platelegs 1 Always 37,947
Note: You will almost always get all three armour pieces back. Very rarely will you lose a piece of armour.
- Even though players put in the needed pieces to create the animated armour, it is unknown where it got the rune longsword from.
- Despite wielding a longsword, its attack speed is the same as scimitars and other 'fastest' speed weapons. It also uses its longsword as a stabbing weapon even though players can only use longswords as slashing weapons (since weapons were given singular impact types after the Evolution of Combat).
- Oddly, this armour and the other Animated Armour Sets were not graphically updated along with player-worn armour sets.
- As the combat level is so high, and the Animated Rune Armour is so easy to kill after the EoC update. It can be used to easily achieve high level Daily Tasks without having to do much work.
