Since the EoC is coming and Glaiven boots will require 85 defence (which I don't yet have) I'm considering putting them on with the help of a defence potion. When my defence falls below 85, what will happen with the item? Will it be unequipped or lose its stats?

  • If you need a defense potion to put them on now, can't you simply test this yourself for when the defense potion wears off? – Raven Dreamer Nov 10 '12 at 17:30

    I'm nearly positive that you ability to wear items depends on natural stats, not modified stats. I know that if your defense falls arbitrarily far, your armor stays on. – murgatroid99 Nov 11 '12 at 4:19
  • @ Raven: I can't test it now because I do have the stats for them on live RS, but I found out that this would be impossible, so thanks for your replies. – AM- Nov 12 '12 at 20:13

I think the same thing happens with P2P items when you hop to an F2P world, i.e. it not only loses its stats but "vanishes". For example, if you equip an abyssal whip, then hop to a free server and attack something, you will be attacking it unarmed, but the whip will still appear in your equipped items menu.


I dont think youll be able to wear them at all. Like @murgatroid99 said, it depends on your natural stat, not the modified one you will have from drinking a defense potion.
