Bandos tassets detail

Bandos tassets are a part of the Bandos armour set, requiring 65 Defence to wear. They are dropped by General Graardor and his bodyguards in the God Wars Dungeon. Bandos tassets are widely coveted among melee users as they provide a strength bonus along with substantial defensive bonuses.

Bandos armour is arguably the most powerful non-degradable melee armour in Old School RuneScape. For this reason, it is a common selection for melee training, Slayer tasks, and other prolonged combat encounters. Its excellent ranged protection along with its strength and prayer bonus makes it popular for some boss hunting scenarios. Stat-wise, it is comparable to barrows platelegs, which provide almost identical ranged protection and significantly higher melee protection. However, most barrows armour does not provide any strength or prayer bonus and degrades.

The most comparable piece of barrows armour is Verac's plateskirt; its +4 prayer bonus, higher melee defensive bonuses and lack of negative magic defence bonus makes it a very feasible substitute given its lower cost.

In comparison to other non-degradable options, Obsidian platelegs have -1 less Strength bonus and worse defensive stats, but are significantly cheaper. Dragon platelegs are also much cheaper and offer similar melee protection, however have notably worse ranged defence (-28) and no strength bonus.
