Animated Runite Armour is found at the Warriors' Guild and is the most powerful Animated Armour in the Animated Armour activity. In order to summon it, you must put a Rune full helm, a Rune platebody and Rune platelegs on the Magical Animator. This is one of the quickest ways to get tokens.

Low-levelled players are advised to bring food and wear stab-resistant armour. It is the Highest level Animated armour. The player may not get all of their Rune armour parts back when it is defeated; however, the better defensive bonuses the armour provides, the lower the chances of losing 1 or more parts. You cannot use magic or ranged to kill the armour as they will always hit zero.

When you place the armour on the Magical Animator this text appears:

You place your armour on the platform where it disappears....

The animator hums, something appears to be working. You stand back...

When you lose a piece of armour you recieve this text:

A piece of the armour crumbles to dust.


Players are advised to use a strong weapon with the Crush style attack, such as the Saradomin Sword on crush, as the Animated Rune Armour is weak to Crush type attacks. Lower levelled players might opt for a Dragon battleaxe or mace.

Another good way to fight the Animated Rune Armour is by using a halberd, preferably a dragon halberd. You can use any type of halberd (as long as you have the required stats). After the armour spawns, run to the opposite side of the platform it spawned from, and then to the side you have not run past already. The Animated Armour will be trapped next to the platform, which you can stand on the opposite side of and attack the armour without taking any damage.

Non-crush weapons such as the Abyssal whip will work fine if your attack level is high enough (85 or higher), but will not provide as fast a kill rate as crush-based attacks.

Note: There is a chance that you will lose 1 or more pieces of armour that you put in. The higher level the animated armour, the less likely it is that you will lose (a) piece(s). Still, chances are you will get your armour back most of the time after fighting.


  • Even though players put in the needed pieces to create the animated armour, it is unknown where it got the rune longsword from.
