#3476726 I need to make 20m+

Posted by bogwaga on 22 March 2009 - 08:25 AM in Help and Advice

You could try melee at sara gwd like suggested, or you could just get like 80 boots at mages?

#3464090 Multiple tasks in a row >_<

Posted by bogwaga on 17 March 2009 - 05:34 AM in Rants

Yeah those really are the worse. A while ago had 3 steels then an iron, and now like 2 tasks later, 2 black demons.

#3462821 A new approach to Alchemy

Posted by bogwaga on 16 March 2009 - 07:57 PM in General Guides

Good guide, seems like a very econonomical way to alch, even if you loose 2 seconds a load. I'll probably end up trying it soon, thanks! :<img src=:' />

#3455869 jagex favors melee

Posted by bogwaga on 14 March 2009 - 04:25 AM in Rants

Saying that Jagex favors melee is silly, because they don't.

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.

#3446826 Rate me, I guess. (138 Cmb - more intresting now?)

Posted by bogwaga on 10 March 2009 - 06:13 AM in Achievements (Drops, Bank Pictures and Levels)

Holy Cow! :ohnoes: Those are really nice stats and nice bank too! 10/10

It looks like you could have a maxed out total relatively soon, seeing as the only tough ones you got left are RC and Agility.

#3436340 Slayer Master with fastest Exp.

Posted by bogwaga on 05 March 2009 - 06:43 AM in Help and Advice

I've been going Duradel for a while, and I was just wondering if Sumona or Chaledar are faster than him.

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.

#3304154 Rune Javelin.....

Posted by bogwaga on 12 January 2009 - 12:29 AM in Help and Advice

YEah, just alch them, you'll make a bit, on each, and get some magic exp.

#3298646 Draconic Visage..

Posted by bogwaga on 10 January 2009 - 12:31 AM in Help and Advice

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.

#3289702 No Subject

Posted by bogwaga on 06 January 2009 - 03:54 AM in Help and Advice

If you have a subscription then Cancel it right away. F2p is alot less tempting and that's what I usually do like a month before finals and other important times. You'll miss it for like half a day, then you'll forget about it all. This same thing happened to me, and ending my subscription got me back on the right path. It's silly to think that you will be able to stop yourself from playing games completely. What's important is that you plan out your time. Finish all your work with at least 1 hour at night for computer / Xbox or whatever.

If you aren't a member, all I can suggest is take a break for a month, without logging in for any reason whatsoever.

#3276026 Should i get 70 Prayer

Posted by bogwaga on 01 January 2009 - 08:30 AM in Help and Advice

Well I would atleast get 60 for now, which is still relatively helpful, and a whole lot cheaper. If you have the extra money and your not expecting to be needing it in the near future, I would just go for 70, you won't regret it.

#3243343 Should I fire cape?

Posted by bogwaga on 19 December 2008 - 06:23 AM in Help and Advice

The only thing I would recommend is maybe getting 60 pray, and maybe like 75 def. But really if you read a couple guides and watch a couple videos on Youtube, you'll be fine.

#3242917 Dragon Slayer Gloves Stacking with Slayer Helm

Posted by bogwaga on 19 December 2008 - 02:22 AM in Help and Advice

That's what I was thinking, but I was told they didn't. Well thanks guys, someone can close this thread. :<img src=:' />

#3242875 Dragon Slayer Gloves Stacking with Slayer Helm

Posted by bogwaga on 19 December 2008 - 02:09 AM in Help and Advice

I thought they do, but then some people told me that they don't stack so can someone please clarify this?

#3241062 Kent's guide to Slayer mastery! NEW SECTION!!!

Posted by bogwaga on 18 December 2008 - 06:22 AM in General Guides

Overall, a very nice guide, and I read almost all of the sections. The only question I have is about the Fog Dragon Slayer gloves. Would these be better than combat bracelet for Irons and either Baby Blacks or KBD?

#3241028 dfs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by bogwaga on 18 December 2008 - 05:56 AM in Achievements (Drops, Bank Pictures and Levels)


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.

#3238563 Dragon: Whats next?

Posted by bogwaga on 17 December 2008 - 05:03 AM in General Discussion

D Crossbow would be ridiculously powerful, and I think that a dragon defender would be too good also.

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.

#3233040 jagex favors melee

Posted by bogwaga on 14 December 2008 - 10:21 PM in Rants

Jagex does favor melee in the fact that they do get more updates if thats what your ranting about, but in terms of power Melee and Range are pretty much equal. I don't agree with anyone who says that mage is just as powerful if used correctly. And they can beat meleers if they stay out of their melee range so they can refreeze them without taking damage. But mages get into real trouble ones their opponents put on some Karils. And what about when they fight Range? Then their freezing doesn't do anything and they'll be hardly getting hit while they get ripped apart because of their robes.

#3230402 How To Make 60-70m

Posted by bogwaga on 13 December 2008 - 10:02 PM in Help and Advice

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.

#3229980 Wanted: Mass Murder

Posted by bogwaga on 13 December 2008 - 07:11 PM in Achievements (Drops, Bank Pictures and Levels)

You killed alot of poor mages :shock: 9/10

How long did it take?

#3219919 where is the "best" melee xp?

Posted by bogwaga on 09 December 2008 - 03:46 AM in Help and Advice

Probably Zombie Monkies while blocking all tasks from the lowest slayer master other than monkies so you can use Slayer helm / Black mask. That might even get you some decent slayer exp, but for some reason I doubt it'll work.

#3213050 Where to hunt Waterfiends

Posted by bogwaga on 06 December 2008 - 07:14 AM in Help and Advice

Pretty much only ancient cavern. I hear Chaos tunnels is death, since you'll get piled and owned. Barbarian training shouldn't take more than 10 mins.

#3213048 Crimson Charms

Posted by bogwaga on 06 December 2008 - 07:11 AM in Help and Advice

I'd range Black demons in the Chaos tunnels if I were you, tons of crims there. Greaters aren't horrible, but I think blacks are much better.

#3210282 DRAGON PLATE!!!! :@

Posted by bogwaga on 04 December 2008 - 11:38 PM in Rants

No point in looking at it for it's stats. Bandos or Barrows are easily better. Honestly the looks aren't that bad, what were you expecting? Got ideas of what they could do to make it look nice?

#3210192 How To Make 60-70m

Posted by bogwaga on 04 December 2008 - 10:58 PM in Help and Advice

You can't expect to make that much money fast, much better than the farming you've been doing. The harpoon method is great, and use it for at least more than 2 loads to get some start up cash. Then get your skills up till you can go to Sara or Arma GWD or other boss hunting.

If there was a fast and fun way to get millions then everyone would have done it.

#3206816 Dragon Dagger V.S. Dragon Claws

Posted by bogwaga on 03 December 2008 - 06:18 AM in General Discussion

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.
