Pernix armour is a set of degradable high-level Ranged power armour that requires 80 Range, 80 Defence, and 80 Constitution to wear. It was first mentioned on 3 January 2011[1] and released into the game on 10 January 2011[2]. Pernix armour pieces may only be obtained as rare drops from Nex, the boss of the Zarosian stronghold of the God Wars Dungeon, the Ancient Prison. It is the Ranged counterpart to Virtus armour and Torva armour, which are respectively Magic and Melee sets.

As tier 80 equipment, Pernix armour is currently the third highest-level Ranged armour in the game (behind sirenic and death lotus), and the second-best Ranged power armour.

Wearing any piece of Pernix, Torva, or Virtus armours, or wielding a Zaryte bow, Virtus wand, Virtus book or ascension crossbow, will cause all factions of monsters in the God Wars Dungeon (aside from bosses or the Ancient Prison) to be unaggressive.

Degrading and repairEdit

Pernix armour fully degrades after 10 hours of combat. Its bonuses are not lost as it degrades; they remain constant throughout the ten hours. The percentage of an item's charge can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Each individual item in the set can be repaired either at Bob's Brilliant Axes or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. Repair costs at an armour stand decrease linearly based on the player's Smithing level, which can be boosted, but not assisted.

Item shards are obtained from certain monsters while having CoinShare on. When a rare drop is given by the monster, 120 item shards are divided up among the involved players and sent to their banks. 120 shards can then be combined to give the original item.
