2. Armadyl Armour Set

The Armadyl Armour set is the second best in slot ranged gear for OSRS. However, it is still significantly worse than the Masori set. So, its worth upgrading as soon as you can. As the Arma set does not provide any boost to ranged strength. Although, the set does benefit from high defensive bonuses and the second highest ranged accuracy.

How to get Armadyl?

Individual pieces of the Armadyl set can be obtained as a unique reward from killing Kree’arra. You will need to have collected the required follower kill count to enter her arena, located in the God Wars Dungeon.

3. Karil’s Ranged Gear

The Karil’s armour is a set of powerful ranged gear that requires a minimum of 70 ranged and defence to use. The armour is strong but is also degradable, meaning it can be expensive to use in the long run. For this reason there may be better options available.

How to get Karil’s?

Individual pieces of the Karil’s set can be obtained from completing the Barrows minigame. Looting the chest will give you the chance to receive Karil’s pieces, but only if you have killed Karil during the minigame.

The Crystal Armour is an elven set that requires a minimum of 60 ranged and 70 defence to use. The armour is degradable and requires charges to be used to full effect. It can be charged with the use of crystal shards.

Each individual armour piece from the set, has a bonus effect when equipped to give a accuracy and damage boost to the Crystal Bow and Bow of Faerdhinen. Adding up to a total 30% accuracy and 15% damage bonus when the full set is worn.

How to get Crystal Armour?

Crystal Armour seeds must be obtained from completing the Gauntlet or Corrupted Gauntlet. Players can then take these to the singing bowls in Priffindas to create them, with the additional crystal shard fee. You can also go to Reese or Conwenna if you don’t have the required crafting or smithing level.
