Batwing robes are magical robes that require 30 Defence to wear. They are accompanied by a matching wand and book which both require 30 Magic to equip. All items in this set are made from batwing, which is an uncommon drop from bats (as well as giant bats, albino bats, and warped bats). The equipment set can be crafted by members with a needle and some thread. In total a player will need 17 batwings and a Crafting level of 61 in order to create a full set (with the choice of book or shield).
These robes can be traded and equipped by all players but created only by members, since their raw material, batwing, can only be obtained on a members world.
This robe set was controversial when it was added to the combat beta due to how much of the female avatar's chest was visible.
After an update on 23 November2015, Batwing robes had their level requirements swapped with the Mystic robes, making them require 30 Defence instead of 50. The bat wand, book and shield did not have their requirements changed until a later update on 30 November.
