Pernix body detail

The Pernix body is part of the Pernix armour set, obtainable by killing Nex. It requires 80 Defence and 80 Constitution to be worn.

The body lasts for a duration of 10 hours of combat before degrading completely, and then may be repaired by Bob in Lumbridge or at a Player-owned house armour stand. It should be noted that the body does not degrade in increments, and its stats stay the same until the 10 hours are up. It costs 2 million coins to have the body repaired at Bob's Brilliant Axes, or 1 million coins at an armour stand with 99 Smithing.

Wearing this body or any other piece of ancient armour will make all factions (Except Zarosians) in the God Wars Dungeon unaggressive.

When received with CoinShare active, the Pernix body will be dropped as 120 Pernix body shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

  • This item, along with the other Torva, Pernix, and Virtus pieces, originally had a glitch which did not allow them to be traded even after being repaired. This has since been fixed.
  • In Latin, Pernix means 'quick,' 'nimble,' 'brisk,' 'agile,' 'active,' or 'light.'
  • Whenever Nex drops a piece of Torva, Pernix, or Virtus armour, a server wide announcement is broadcast to all players currently logged into that particular world.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, when worn, the body increased a player's maximum life points by 200. This, alongside all other Nex armours, was the only piece of equipment to do so.
