Virtus gloves detail

Virtus gloves are part of the Virtus armour set, obtainable by killing Nex. They require 80 Defence and 80 Constitution to be worn.

Wearing these gloves or any other piece of the ancient armour will make all factions in the God Wars Dungeon unaggressive.

When received with CoinShare active, the Virtus gloves will be dropped as 120 Virtus gloves shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

Ancient armour degrades as it is used. Equipment received from Nex is fully repaired and can be used for 60,000 charges of combat (though it degrades by 2 charges per hit, making the minimum time 5 hours) 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 Ancient armour can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Ancient armour 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 Ancient 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:
