A pernix body is an item of high-level ranged armour that requires level-80 Defence to wear. It is a possible drop from Nex, located in the Ancient Prison beneath the God Wars Dungeon.

Pernix armour degrades when it is used in combat, and lasts for 10 hours of combat before breaking. A pernix body can be repaired by certain NPCs, such as Bob in Lumbridge, for the cost of 2,000,000 coins. It can also be repaired on an armour stand for a reduced cost based on the user's Smithing level - at level-99 Smithing the cost is reduced to 1,000,000 coins.

Wearing the body, or any piece of torva, pernix or virtus armour, offers protection against all factions (except Zariosians) in the God Wars Dungeon, making these monsters passive towards the wearer.

The pernix body is more powerful than the armadyl chestplate, but it is considerably more expensive and has the disadvantage of degrading in combat.

Pernix body shard If acquired when CoinShare is active, the player will be given an equal share of 120 pernix body shards, 120 of which combine to make a pernix body.
