Because changing from Drygore off hand to EE shaves something like 0.3% off your dps (assuming abilities use) and gives 33% discount on your Drygore upkeep.

Ignore the combat triangle on almost everything.

You don't use drygores on most tasks - you barrage them. It is far faster. E.g. abyssal demons in the slayer tower with a contract and Morytania Legs 4 are over 300k slay xp/hr. Anything that is highly resistant to magic (read: weak to ranged) you should use drygores on with the sole exception of Waterfiends.

Use momentum when barraging, but use abilities with drygores.

Also make sure to do Kalphite tasks at KK.


Unless of course you value exp in range or melee then this is true. Also aviansie tasks can be done at kree, greater demon tasks at Kril and black dragon tasks at the QBD if you need or want cash.

Drygore really is the best just about everywhere. Even on glakkers they're almost as effective as fire surge/bloodfire barrage.


You get magic and defence by barraging. Attack and strength come from the drygore tasks and training pure combat after 99 slayer. The increase in slayer xp/hr from barraging over using drygores is so significant that even if you still need att/str xp, you should still barrage most tasks. Referring to slayer only of course. In PVM you should use drygores in almost every situation.

Can you elaborate with Calculations please? Cause I think you miss the Accuracy bit...

Accuracy when using abilities is only based off your mainhand weapon, meaning you don't lose any accuracy by using an eee.

This. Untrusting people like myself are expecting a nerf either to the way abilities count accuracy or to the EE itself eventually and thus go with drygore anyways.

The way I see it, even if EE gets nerfed right now, I doubt anyone will notice (or even know about the nerf). So it's a safe bet that, unless the nerf comes very far down the line, I don't see Drygore Off hand prices will be significantly affected by the nerf. It might shoot up initially, then fall back down to 'normal' prices again.

So until EE do indeed get nerfed (I am still inclined to believe they will than they won't), I find no reason to even own a Drygore off hand, much less using it.

Let them not notice. All of us with drygore off hands will get all the drops and be more than happy to stay silent about it.
