Black Ibis outfit equipped
Black ibis outfit female equipped

The black ibis outfit is a reward that can be obtained in the Pyramid Plunder minigame. The full set gives a 5% boost to the player's Thieving experience, up to a maximum of 700 experience per action when worn. This boost can stack with other Thieving experience boosts.

Searching the urns or sarcophagi within Pyramid Plunder will yield a chance of finding a piece of the black ibis set. The base drop rate is 1/2,300. If the player is equipped with the sceptre of the gods (doubling the odds), the master camouflage outfit (10% increase), a luck enhancer of tier 3 or above (3% increase), or any combination of the three, the chance is increased. Thus the maximal chance to obtain a piece is 1/1,003.[1] Unlike the sceptre drop, the player is not expelled from the pyramid when they find a piece of the outfit. Instead, a dialogue box will pop up notifying the player of what they found. If the player's inventory is full, the outfit piece will replace an artefact in a similar manner to receiving a strange rock piece.

The complete set may be placed in the armour case in the costume room of a player-owned house.

The black ibis outfit is difficult to obtain as it generally takes at least a few million Thieving experience per one piece of the set, although there is an unlikely chance of getting more than one piece in a single run of Pyramid Plunder. Additionally, pieces of the set cannot be obtained at all without a Thieving level of 78.[1]

  • Previously, no experience was gained whilst wearing the black ibis outfit at Pyramid Plunder, however opening the doors to enter the Jalsavrah Pyramid would award multiplied experience.
  • On 26 September 2012, the experience boost provided by this outfit (and all the other experience-boosting sets) was increased from 2.5% to 5% in an update that went official on 28 September to coincide with the release of four new experience-boosting sets.
  • After a player has looted a part of the black ibis outfit, their Adventurer's Log will say: "Whilst plundering the Pyramids I looted a Black ibis (part's name)".
