Proselyte armour can be obtained after completing the Slug Menace quest from Sir Tiffy Cashien in Falador. The quest is a requirement for wearing the set, along with 30 Defence and 20 Prayer. It has the same stats as its mithril armour counterpart (except for the Prayer bonus).
The armour consists of only three pieces of plate armour, offering either legs (cuisse) or a skirt (tasset). Proselyte armour, when combined with Dragon rider gloves, Dragon rider boots, Illuminated god books, Explorer's ring, Demon horn necklace, and Completionist cape, will give the highest Prayer bonus amongst melee armour. This is due to the fact that a set of full Verac's armour (+18) gives a higher Prayer bonus in total, but includes a two-handed weapon. Akrisae's armour (+24) is also higher, and has a Prayer regenerate effect similar to Guthans Lifepoints regeneration.
Proselyte armour is also a popular substitute for more expensive armour as it provides reasonably good Defence bonuses and offers a notable Prayer bonus.

Components and BonusesEdit

- When Proselyte armour first came out, Jagex made the mistake of making it a free-to-play item. Free players could obtain Proselyte armour from another player through trade, but not wear it.
- Unlike most melee armours with the typical 'metallic' model, wearing Proselyte armour has no effect on the arrow-gathering ability of Ava's Attractor, suggesting that it may not be made out of metal.
- The in-game Prayer guide includes 'Proselyte plateskirt' instead of 'Proselyte tasset', but for the Defence skill guide it says 'Proselyte tasset'. The RuneScape Grand Exchange guide on the website also says 'Proselyte tasset', not 'Proselyte plateskirt'.
- The biblical term Proselyte refers to a convert from Paganism to Judaism in the New Testament.
