Armor & Weaponry

The best Armor and Weaponry in Old School Runescape can be gained through membership, otherwise you are not playing the game on its highest potential. If you stick to the F2P content, then the highest gear you will be able to use is the Rune equipment. The Rune gear gives very low defense compared to the likes of P2P gears such as the Bandos armor which is the best melee gear in the game. Without a membership, your gear progress will simply cap in a very short time.
