- This armour has a golden variant.
Verac the Defiled's equipment is obtainable from the Barrows minigame. Completing the Barrows minigame does not guarantee players will get a Barrows item. The set requires 70 Defence to wear the armour and 70 Attack to wield the weapon. Verac's set used to be the only set of Barrows equipment to give a prayer bonus with each piece until the release of the Akrisae's set, which also gives a higher prayer bonus than Verac's set.
Along with Dharok's set and Guthan's set, Verac's is one of the more popular Barrows equipment. Apart from the usual defence and attack bonuses that Barrows sets confer, the Verac's set also provides a small prayer bonus.
Defiler: Successful melee attacks have a chance of dealing increased damage.Current testing shows an increase of approximately 33% more damage when the damage effect is activated (this was tested on training dummies in Lumbridge, using only the full set and no additional prayers, potions, boots, gloves, etc. with level 99 in combat stats and on Legacy combat on 7 May 2015).[source needed]

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Barrows equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.
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 for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. 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
| Costs to repair|

- Before the Evolution of Combat update, Verac's set was a very popular choice when fighting the Kalphite Queen, because it could breach through her Protect from Melee prayer in her second form. However, this is no longer the case, as Verac's lost the ability to hit through armour and prayer.
- The prayer bonuses the set offers were significantly reduced after the Evolution of Combat update.
