Hi. I'd like to know what the best defense bonus is in game for non-degradable armour (Ex: Barrows)

Money isn't an issue, however if something is very high priced (Bandos?), cheaper alternatives would be appreciated.

There's not much to choose from armour goes- rune-dragon-bandos/barrows and since you don't want barrows it's either dragon or bandos. You could go with a rune plate and d skirt/legs. It's all about the d skirt to me but that's a whole different matter. You could make up for the def bonus lost from not wearing barrows with an obby shield or granite shield. They give the same def bouns stats but the obby shield gives a +5 str bonus. An obby shield is around 200k and a granite shield is around 50k.

Yeah, X dun I think you've hit the target with your post..
I'm almost certain Bandos is more an offense piece of Armour.
Going by your post, 3rd Age is an issue >_<
Buy D Legs imo :D

3rd age isn't better than Bandos
I think the best non degradable armour would be netiznot helm, dragonfire shield, bandos plate, bandos tassets, dragon boots.

Dragon has more defense while bandos has more offense bonus

Id use dragon with a god platebody to b nice looking but cheap, unlike the d chain that I cant afford at the moment.

Remember, if the bandos chest is out of your price range, you can use a torso for the same str bonus(good if you have high defence and a bunyip)

Best for defense bonuses would be Third Age, cheaper alternative would be Dragon Armour.

For offensive bonuses, go with Bandos.

Well, it really dpends on how much money you have. A dragon chainbody alone costs 20 times more than a full rune set. (Check it if you don't believe me. Rune set(l)=about 200k. D chainbody=about 4mil. 200000 X 20 = 4000000.) Sure, 3rd Age is best, but who has that kind of money?

Believe it or not, there's quite a few people who have that kind of money.

This is basically what I use... I use dragon legs (you can use dragon plate skirt if you want to save money), I use abyssal whip or dragon scimitar, combat bracelet or dragon gauntlets, amulet of glory, dragon defender, bandos boots, warriors ring or berserker ring, helm of neitiznot or berserker helm, and I know you said no barrows but it's what I use for chest slot i use verac's brassard which is better than any platebody I have ever used and a lot cheaper than bandos dragon chain and dragon plate.
Also some people may say barrows is bad because it degrades but tbh it really takes a Lon tome for it to degrade I believe it takes 15 hours for it to degrade fully.
