The Black platebody (g) is a gold-trimmed version of a black platebody. It has the same defence stats as a normal black platebody and thus is purely ornamental in purpose. It is a possible reward from level 1 Treasure trails, or a rare chance at one from the Columbarium by killing and cremating vyre corpses. It requires 25 defence to equip. Players buy it for its unique design.
This platebody was once used as a scam. A player would claim to be able to trim a piece of armour. The victim then would give the player the piece of armour and a charged fee. The scammer would then sell/keep the item(s). (With the return of Update:The Wilderness and Free Trade Return! this scam can still be attempted.)
