Black equipment consists of weapons and armour stronger than steel equipment, yet weaker than mithril equipment. As with all things black, they have a black colour. Black, along with its counterpart White, is a coloured form of Steel as a result from specialised forging techniques which also slightly increase its defensive capability.
Black armour requires 10 defense to equip while weapons and tools such as pickaxes, axes, or swords require 10 attack. No quests are required in order to wear black armour.
The Black KnightsEdit
Black armour is famously worn by The Kinshra or, "The Black Knights". The Black Knights are an enemy group to the famous White Knights of Falador.
