A dragon platebody is the product of combining a dragon chainbody, dragon metal lump, and dragon metal shard at the Dragon Forge. This process requires 90 Smithing and grants 2,000 Smithing experience.
The dragon platebody requires the completion of Dragon Slayer and level 60 Defence to wear. It offers some of the highest bonuses of any non-degradable armour in the game, providing higher slash and stab defence than the Bandos chestplate.
Players can attach a dragon platebody ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to create a gold-trimmed dragon platebody (g). This is only cosmetic, and does not affect the platebody's stat bonuses. It can be dismantled, returning the platebody and ornament kit.
