Pernix cowl detail
Pernix cowl chathead

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

The cowl 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 cowl does not degrade in increments, and its stats stay the same until the 10 hours is up. It costs 500,000 coins to have the cowl repaired at Bob's Brilliant Axes, or 250,000 coins at an armour stand with 100 Smithing.

Wearing this cowl or any other piece of ancient armour will make all factions in the God Wars Dungeon unaggressive.

When received with CoinShare active, the Pernix cowl will be dropped as 120 Pernix cowl 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 or worn. This has since been fixed.
  • 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 cowl increased a player's maximum life points by 66.
