First you must understand the best setup is debatable. The armor you use to enhance your players offense and defense, can vary depending on what you need it for. Armor has to be stronger against crush, slash or stab. Depending on what a player is wearing or what a monsters weakness is. Below we will show you the best osrs armor setup for defense purposes. This will give you the overall highest defense stats possible.

We will review the best armor for slash. It’s the most popular attack method in Runescape. Making this armor setup the most useful when doing PvM or PVP.

You will need at least 75 defense in RS to use everything.

Helmet: Torag’s, Guthan’s or Verac’s Helmet.

These gloves are the toughest part of the best osrs armor setup. You need a whopping 175 Quest points. Plus you need to complete Recipe for Disaster. These gloves are no joke and provide incredible bonuses. Really only for hardcore RuneScape players though. +12 slash defense bonus.
