In terms of Profit:



Cockroach Soldiers (Death, Law, Addy ore noted, 2 rune items)> Ankous (Addy Arrows, Law, Ess, Mith ore noted) > Lessers (Death, Chaos, Fire, 1 rune item)



In terms of Efficiency:



Lessers (Low def) > Ankous (medium def) > Cockroach Soldiers (High def)



P.S.



If you range, ankous and lessers are both great, cockroach soldiers is a no-no.



If you mage, lessers are definetly the best, while ankous are slightly slower, and cockroach soldier is impossible.



In terms of Competition, both ankous and lessers are in non-multi area, which means more waiting if crowded but no interference in looting; cockroach soldier is in a multi-combat area, which means no waiting but there could be noobish looting interference.



In conclusion, if I were you, I'd go for Lessers in less crowded hours, and ankous in crowded hours.
I am back.

You forgot to put death runes and adamant arrows that ankou seem to drop a ton of. Lessers really are bad money, i could go for 200 kills before i get a rune med helmet. Same with cockroaches, i was f2p and it was a pain, they hit hard too even when you have full rune. Theres also a room in the SoS purely with ankou, no ghosts and theres about 7? respawns.



EDIT: And if you choose ankou, attack the level 75 ones, the 80s don't drop death runes.

okay in the first place BAd911 ankous dont drop deaths, they drop laws and secondly you must have really bad lukc because i get 35k+ with each trip back to the bank by fighting raoches. i get a rune item atleast once every trip and once i even got 1 scimi and 2 sq's...

i dont know about cockroaches but they should be plenty of them, but between ankous and lesser demons, never ever do lessers if ur going for xp. theres plenty of ankous but the lowest lvs ones are always busy, same thing if not worst for lessers

Your attacking the wrong ones. the 82s and 86s don't drop them, but the 75s do.

Thank you very much. Yeah, I missed addy arrows from ankous. Edited.



As for Death Rune, I don't know. I trained Range at ankous a lot (that's how I got my current range level of 94), and I didn't get even 1 Death Rune from them. Maybe I just trained at the wrong ankous? :shock:
I am back.
