Platelegs are a type of armour worn mainly by warriors in the leg slot. Among melee attack types, platelegs provides good defence against the slash attack type but is more vulnerable to the crush attack type. Platelegs gives a player penalties towards ranged attacks and penalties towards magic defence. However, platelegs have very good defence against ranged attacks.
Platelegs are made with the Smithing skill or purchased at the plate legs shop identified by the icon on the map. One such location is Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar in Al Kharid. Horvik's Armour Shop offers iron platelegs.
They are more popular and consequently more expensive than the plateskirt, despite having identical stats and weighing 1 kg more, and they are not gender-locked, (i.e. male characters can wear plateskirts and female characters can wear platelegs).
