Tetsu armour is a set of degradable melee armour unlocked via Player-owned ports. 85 Defence and Constitution are required to wear it. It can be made at 90 Smithing in the port's workshop which is not boostable. Plate is the trade good required for its production.

Before the armour can be made, the ability to make the pieces must be unlocked.  This is done by collecting 4 forgotten scrolls per armour piece. A total of 12 scroll pieces are required to be able to craft all 3 pieces of the armour.

The armour comes in two versions, tradeable and untradeable ('Superior'). The Superior version has higher stats than the tradeable one and lasts 12 hours of combat, compared to the regular version's 10 hours. The Superior version can be repaired, but the tradeable version cannot and will degrade to nothing. The repair cost of the Superior armour set is Coins 1000 2,100,000 at level 99 Smithing.

Upon death from PvP, the Superior versions will be converted to the following regardless of charge:

Item Convert
Tetsu helm Coins 1000 750,000
Tetsu body Coins 1000 1,800,000
Tetsu platelegs Coins 1000 1,200,000

Dying to an NPC simply drops it to the ground (or gravestone if outside the Wilderness) with 10% of its charge lost.

TriviaEdit

  • The name Tetsu is based on the Japanese word "鉄" (pronounced Tetsu), meaning "Iron".
  • Given its relation to Player-Owned Ports the Tetsu armour may also be derived from Guillaume Le Testu, 16th century French privateer, explorer and cartographer.
  • Tetsu, along with Sea Singer armour, received a graphical change on 14 January 2013. It has now a golden colour scheme, recoloured from the original teal.
  • Before the update on 7 January 2014, the Tetsu body and legs were known as the 'Tetsu Laminar' and 'Tetsu Legplates' in the Ports Management scrolls interface.
