The fighter torso, or Penance torso, is a piece of armour that requires 40 Defence to wear and is rewarded from the Barbarian Assault minigame. Fighter torsos can be purchased from Commander Connad in exchange for 375 honour points in all four roles and having killed the Penance Queen. You can use the Fighter torso on Commander Connad to sell it back for 300 honour points in all four roles.
If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 50,000 coins by using the item on Perdu or an Armour stand in a PvP world.
Please note that while this item is obtainable by any player, lower-levelled characters may struggle to fulfill the attacker role within the Barbarian Assault minigame and must be more closely monitored by healers. Thus, obtaining this item on a character of below level 65 combat should only be attempted by experienced users.
Compared to a rune platebody, the fighter torso has generally inferior defence bonuses and a greater magic penalty, but has slightly higher slash defence, and no negative ranged bonus. Also, it is tied with the Bandos chestplate for having the highest strength bonus (+4) for the body equipment slot.
Due to its strength bonus, it is a good choice for general training, where maximising one's damage output will often take precedence over defensive bonuses.
Like the other Penance equipment, the fighter torso weighs significantly less than regular armour. This makes it useful for situations such as quests where the player must travel a lot but may be required to fend off some enemies.
Because its unusually high negative magic attack bonus it is highly effective for splashing.
Furthermore, the fighter torso is also a good choice of armour for players who wish to avoid completing Dragon Slayer for any reason.
