|Examine||Torag the Corrupted's plate body armour.|
Being part of Torag's barrows set, if Torag's platebody is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Torag's barrows set the player receives a special attack. Damaging melee attacks have a chance of lowering the victim's run energy by 20%. However, most players will wear the armour and use a weapon other than Torag's hammers since the set effect is not normally considered useful. This piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
- Torag's platebody is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
- If you drop this item it will degrade to "0".

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again. Barrows armour degrades even if the player is using protection prayers or not taking damage. Like the Crystal ward and crystal bow, Barrows equipment does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. Fully repaired Barrows items start out with no numbers in their names, e.g. Torag's platebody. It will become Torag's platebody 100 the first time it's used in combat. Eventually it will degrade to Torag's platebody 75, then 50, then 25 and finally 0 at which point the armour will be unusable until repaired. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded.
When dropped or lost on death (even when placed under a gravestone), any piece of Barrows equipment will automatically degrade to 0. Players who attempt to drop Barrows equipment will receive a warning message about this.
There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.
The following NPCs can repair the armour:
- Bob - the axe seller in Lumbridge
- Tindel Marchant - the weapon and armour repairman at Port Khazard
- Dunstan - the smith in Burthorpe
- Squire - in the workshop area of the Void Knights' Outpost

- Before the Evolution of Combat, Torag's platebody had different bonuses from Verac's Brassard, Dharok's platebody and Guthan's platebody. As of now, all four melee chest armour pieces are equal.
- Before the graphical update, Torag's Platebody had regular spikes on the shoulder - Much like Dharoks armour. After the update the platebody better resembles Jagex's depiction of the brother. It seems to have a brassard like attachment across the front.
- With various armour updates, the sprite of Torag's platebody is almost similar to the sprite of an Iron platebody.
