Lets look at the matchups of the combat triangle.
Melee vs. Range: These fights are usually pretty close, and in my experience the melee does usually win. The reason is probably because the fact that rangers are forced to wear items with lower def. But according to the combat triangle the Melee should own the ranger, not win like 55% of the time. How is that fair?
Range vs. Mage: No contest really. Mage will have to put on some barrows and get some more def, causing their maging to be less accurate on the already mage def crazy range. Even with that little def, they will still get owned. This is what is supposed to happen with the combat triangle.
Mage vs. Melee: This one depends on how good the mage is. Unfortunately a majority of mages are not very good at all. They'll get owned by meleers in Karils left and right. But theoretically a good mage should be able to beat a meleer, with the use of the new Miasmic spells. I'm pretty sure these are kinda pricey, but I don't actually know how much the staff costs. I don't know much aabout combos, but I know you can combo some smoke spell with smoke or blood. Basically poisoning them while lowering their attack simultaneously.
Mage won 1 matchup
Melee kinda won so we'll give them .6
Range won 1.4
The fact is is that at similar levels range does hit higher than melee. D bow's max is 96, and Dh's max is close to that. But D bow maxes are so much more common since no sane person would try to get a hit off during pvp while at 1 hp, nor would they have many chances.
The only way that I see that Jagex does favor melee is their selection of weapons(not counting spec weapons). There are so many more choices, Dh, Verac, Whip, all four different Gs's, even d scim works fine. While Range really only has Rune c'bow, and mage short (even though it kind of sucks and could be considered partially a spec weapon). Don't get me wrong, not saying that Range doesn't get the job done with a variety of different bolts, just some variety would be nice.
And regarding whether or not dds/d claws are overpowered compared to d bow. I don't have great melee stats, but still I've only had a handful of good DDS specs ever. But then again, d bow isn't so great either. It may be better than dds, but it also can be very very inaccurate on def. I've only borrowed d claws for a couple hours so I may be wrong on this, but I did find that my hits were consistently better than I usually hit with d bow.
I'm not going to be cannoning any tasks, so keep that in mind.
I'm also going to be ranging basically all of my tasks, but I don't think that will make any difference.
When well people learn? There is no such thing as a drop rate. There never was. Someone who's killed 1 vs someone who's killed 1000 has no less chance of getting a visage. There is no kill counter that decides "oh, you've killed X ammount, better give you a drop."
There is a drop rate, your just misunderstanding what it represents. Sure someone at their 200,000th kill is just as likely to get one in their next kill as someone killing one for the first time, but if that doesn't mean there is no drop rate. If there were no drop rates for any items, then wouldn't Visages be dropping just as often as Rune Limbs? And plus, Jagex said when talking about Rings of Wealth, that wheels are spun in order to determine drops, meaning that there is a certain chance of getting a drop each time you get a kill.
But on topic, yeah, I've heard the drop rate is anywhere from like 2k - 4k.
If you aren't a member, all I can suggest is take a break for a month, without logging in for any reason whatsoever.
Don't listen to all these flamers, you wanted the item and you achieved that goal therefore well done. Some people just don't realise that 15m in cash is alot harder to make for some people than it is themselves and they need to start realising that.
^ What he said...
Yeah, making that money can be tough, so why not expand on it and explain what you did and how you got it. Just showing us a picture of 15m isn't likely to get very good rates. Well anyway, congratulation on getting an item that you have probably been saving up for for a while.
Dragon Pick would be pretty useful, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were the next dragon item released because honestly no one really expected Dragon Claws to be released anytime soon either.
I tried getting the startup money and it was too slow.
If 400-500k an hour is too slow for you, then you have a problem. At your lvl thats very decent.
Too slow buying the harpoons. Aviansies are crap.
If you think 400k - 500k/hr is slow, then you're never going to get that much cash.
And you think Aviansies are crap because your range level is junk.
I'd say get your range level up and slave yourself at Aviansies, or do harpoons.
If you complain about how everything doesn't make enough money/is boring, stop asking for advice here.
Seriously, just train your range up at Aviansies and watch the money pile up. Why exactly do you need all that money anyway? Maybe we can figure out a way for you do what ever your trying to do faster or more efficiently.
If there was a fast and fun way to get millions then everyone would have done it.
Claws are much more accurate then d claws... and dds only has the ko ability after you've already damaged the other player, the d claws have that instant ko ability like ags does.
I'm guessing that you meant to type dds instead of d claws. A dragon dagger+ defender= 60 stab attack. Dragon claws= 56 slash. Not to mention the fact that barrows and bandos both have lower stab defence than slash.
D claws is better, for both PvP and PvE. Yes, four DDS specs will typically do more than two d claw specs, but you have to subtract what you would have done with a whip. Let's say that an average dds spec is 20-20, an average whip hit is 25, and an average d claw spec is 15-15-15-15. You can use the DDS 48 times an hour, and d claws 24. 48*(40-25)= 720. 24*(60-25)=840. DDS will do 720 extra damage an hour, d claws 840. And that's with a fairly conservative estimate for how much a whip can do.
Yeah, but for Claws all you need to do is have your first hit be nice, then the rest follow. It's much harder to hit two high hits with DDS. Maybe DDS will hit more 40's more often, but I think Claws will still be doing more damage.
