Bandos equipment is a full set of melee power armour and shield that requires 70 Defence to wear. The armour pieces are rare drops from General Graardor and his bodyguards in the God Wars Dungeon. Bandos equipment is non-degradable, and it is the melee equivalent to Armadyl armour and the robes of subjugation, which are Ranged and Magic sets respectively. It is also the highest-level non-degradable melee armour in the game.
Because Bandos equipment is strong, does not degrade, and has a Strength bonus, it is in demand and considerably more expensive than Barrows equipment, which has higher defensive bonuses. Bandos equipment is most often used for training combat and Slayer, and for fighting bosses at medium to high levels.
