The granite body is a piece of body armour that requires 50 Defence and 50 Strength to wear. Players who have killed the Penance Queen and have 95,000 coins can purchase the armour from Commander Connad, located on the ground floor of the Barbarian Outpost. It is the only item from the Barbarian Assault minigame that cannot be obtained with honour points.
The Granite body is the most commonly used piece of the granite armour set as it is the only one that provides higher bonuses in every stat over its rune equivalent, the rune platebody.
Even though it is seen as low-level armour, the granite body has superior defensive bonuses to a Fighter torso by a good margin, except the slash defence, which is 1 lower. The granite body is a good choice for players who do not want to spend millions on Bandos armour or Barrows armour. Compared to the dragon chainbody, the granite body provides better range defence and stab defence but weaker by 9 and 19 points in slash and crush respectively. It should be noted that the granite body is far heavier than its alternatives, which may make it impractical for situations such as quests which require prolonged travel.
It is required to purchase and equip this item as part of the hard tasks of the Kandarin achievement diary. It cannot be purchased from anywhere except Commander Connad to meet the requirement for the task, requiring the Penance Queen be killed at least once by the player to be completed.
