I am an experienced Armadyl Soloer, and after getting my second solo armadyl hilt two days ago, i have decided to write a guide.



Table of contents:

1) About Armadyl Solo

2) Reccomended stats, gear, and inventory

3) Kill count

4) Tips, Tricks, Brewing, and advice.

5) Inside the room

6) Video guide

7) The Ring of Wealth?

8) Why you should solo.





About Armadyl Solo



Armadyl Solo is my favorite way to make money. It is fun, and the rewards are great. Solo is a bit risky, so only go if you dont mind risking some money. Armadyl solo used to be very hard. The truth is, in Karils top, v helm, and v skirt, your offense/defensive bonuses flat out suck. But with more and more people having access to better gear, it becomes a far better way to make money. One thing you must remember about armadyl solo, is that practice makes perfect. Your first trip is normally half the kills, or even 1/3 the kills, that you will normally be getting, after you practice a bit. If you give up since you only got 2 kills on your first trip, then you are missing out. Most people have their trips cut short, since they get hit by Kree's melee attack alot. The key to this is brewing in between attacks, which i will explain in more depth later. That is a bit about armadyl solo, just keep in mind that never take a first impression of armadyl, since the first impression is always a failure.



Reccomended Stats, Gear, and inventory



Armadyl solo isnt for the noobs. High stats are needef to do it efficiently. I have decided to make 3 inventory and gear set ups. The first one is cheap, you can do it on a 5m budget, reccomended 87+ range, and 80+ def, with 67 summoning, and will get you between 2 and 3 kills per trip. The second one requires 85+ defense, 93+ range, and 79+ summoning. It is the setup i use, and with practice should yield 5-6 kills per trip, on average. The third setup is for the experts, requires 95+ range, 90+ defense, and 96+ summoning. I dont have access to the pack yak, but my friend has taken the pictures for me. This setup, with practice, should yield 7-10 kills a trip.



Setup one



87+ Range

80+ Defense

67+ summoning

65+ prayer




Gear

Inventory

Method: Get kill count outside of Erie, using range protection and mithril bolts. Note: Switch out any brew in that picture for a zamorak item. When 40 kc, run through the erie praying range, pot up and go in. This method should result in between 2 and 3 kills, with practice.



Setup Two



93+ range

70+ prayer

79+ summon

85+ defense

I used to solo Kree'arra fairly often, and am rather experienced, so if you need ideas, please ask. I would mind telling some of my secrets.

I'm looking forward to this guide to be honest. Good Armadyl guides are a rarity and a good solo guide (written) is out of the question, so yeah, good luck writing & I hope you finish the guide soon!

My only complaint is the colored text. It is really obnoxious. I can't wait until this gets finished though! :D

Needs a lot of work :/.



I don't suggest using ranged potions, with that much brews they'll only last like 1 shot lol...Or just use at minions

Been doing Armadyl solo too occasionally. If you don't mind me posting my inventory and my equipment here are them:

Inventory:

Posted Image

Equipment:

Posted Image

Borrowed armadyl chest, karil' skirt, snakeskin boots, imbued dragonstone ring, spectral spirit shield, amulet of fury, barrows gloves and verac's helm. With that setup I'm keeping chest, shield, fury and helm. And if running out of prayer and protect item then won't keep verac's helm so can switch it for cheaper alternative too if afraid. Ring can be switched too. I enjoy playing Mobilizing armies so I'm not afraid of losing it. I don't use imbued onyx ring because it protects over almost everything else and dragonstone ring is almost as good.



My best solo loot

Looks great so far I can't wait until you have the next section up though. I want to go solo armadyl but I'm thinking about getting 90+ range first.

Looks great!
I know this is a WIP, but just to make a suggestion...
Could you briefly mention how to get the KC outside the Eyrie for noobs like me who always get it inside?

I also recommend you pick lighter colors to better contrast the dark background of the default forum skin.

Spelt eyrie wrong, and the colour kind of hurts.

Anyways, it's nice to finally see a arma guide that I could possibly follow, as this guide dosen't have the insanely high stat reqs that most of the others do.

Sig by me, in MS paint, but I'm still working on it.
Suggestions appreciated

This guide is as concise as a gourmet's handbook with the guidelines of "Pick up fork, stab food, insert into your mouth, then chew".
