  1. You could still use try one of the barrows weapons I mentioned then? You could always put on your sgs to do its special and restore health, then switch back as needed.




    I also have an "issue" when it comes to degradable weapons !


    I been reading some more and found this http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Augmentation#Disassembling_and_siphoning - there is a table where it looks like that from level 60 it doesn't matter any longer whether I dissemble or siphon a weapon as the experience is the same (540,000 exp).


    I'm currently level 27 in Invention and there is approximately 4,2m to level 60. So I have thought about getting there by using black salamanders, which are cheap and lets me train my range (a skill I don't train that much !) in combination with slayer assignments (I'll get my ammo from Abberrant Spectres as they both drop Harralander and Swamp tar.

  2. 1. With the augmented black salamander in your inventory, drag it down to the icon of your invention pouch at the bottom of your inventory. A confirmation prompt will appear, telling you that your item will be destroyed and some other information. Accept it and you will disassemble it, awarding you invention xp and some parts.


    2. I'm not sure if you can use it at level 5, but there is an equipment siphon to siphon off the xp and keep the item, resetting it to level 0 in the process. You won't get very much xp though, so it's I would recommend you just destroy cheap weapons (like the salamander) until you unlock the upgrade to go up to level 15, and then siphon at 12 each time. Siphoning will be half the training speed of disassembling and use up more charge in the process.


    3. You lose the gizmo when you destroy the item. At higher levels you can unlock an item to destroy the item and retain the gizmo, but receive no invention xp. At low level invention there's probably no reason to cannibalize your item.


    4. Assuming you mean 2h melee weapons, there is Balmung (requires Blood Runs Deep, 300k), Akraise's war mace, Verac's flail, Torag's hammers (100k/140k/150k), or an upgraded sunspear (600k, requires River of Blood). I'm not sure how many quests you've done but hopefully one of those will work out for you.

    Thank you for your thorough reply


    Regarding my question #4 then your assumption is correct - your answer was not what I wanted to hear ! as I haven't done any of those quests (and probably won't as I'm no good when it comes to boss fighting :( ) - I would have intended to use my augmented Saradomin Godsword for my slayer assignments, however, as a Saradomin is about +11m gp then it not viable for me, however, maybe a dragon 2h is (currently: 143,767gp )

  3. Hi


    I'm a little confused about what to do once I get my Augmented Black Salamander to level 5 as the guide I'm following on runescape wikia is not quite clear (or maybe i'm just thick skulled): http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/Augmented_black_salamander


    1. How do I get the invention experience ?


    2. Will I have to destroy my Augmented Black Salamander


    3. What about the gizmo; can it be re-used ? - (assuming I will loose my Augmented Black Salamander)


    ---- an additional question ---


    4. I have augmented a Saradomin Godsword - what is a cheap 2-hand alternative is/are there if I have to destroy the Godsword in order to get the invention exp ?


    Well, that was all - thank you in advance for helping me.



  4. Yes, it is possible, but you need a combat staff (or magic weapon) to do any of the combat spells. So a staff of light, staff of armadyl, noxious staff, etc. will work. This was a change they implemented at some point in EoC. The exception is that you can do teleport spells without necessarily wielding a staff, as you saw when you unequipped it.



    Thank you for explaining, I wasn't aware of this as I prefer to use melee in combat and I NEVER use Ancient Magicks !


    I'm currently doing the Do No Evil quest and the video guide I was watching to do the quest, I could see the guy ( the narrator) were using Ancient Magicks ice spells to prevent the choc ice for king Awoogi from melting away, but the guy (the narrator) didn't seem to have any staff equipped !


    Please have a look: https://youtu.be/4T1ESa7-980?t=17m30s (in full screen HD resolution it is very clear to see that he hasn't weapon equipped)


    This update must have been very recent as the video is from 24. of June 2015


    Anyway, I'm glad that you took your time to explaining it to me :)

  5. Hi


    Is it possible to cast a spell from the Ancient Magicks spellbook without using the Ancient Staff ?


    I'm asking this because if I un-equip my Ancient Staff then all the spells in my Ancient Magicks spellbook becomes sorta grey-ish and i'm unable to cast them eventhough I have the proper runes to do so.


    however, i'm still able to cast the teleport spells !


    Is this normal or have I encountered some sort of a bug ?

  6. Basically, the broad tipped bolts is what is reducing your damage on Armadyl Crossbow. Those bolts are T55 ammunition and thus provide T55 damage, whiles Blisterwood Stake provide T70 damage and accuracy.


    What you need to do is get Royal Bolts, they are quite cheap and will provide the full damage that is capable by your highest tier of either Weapon or Ammunition. In this case that would be T75 based on your Weapon.




    Thank you for the advice - I had forgotten all about royal bolts :oops:

  7. Hi


    I would like to know your opinion on this setup for my ranging:


    Armadyl Crossbow with Broad-tipped bolts


    Damage: 480


    Accuracy: 1694


    Prayer bonus: 1 (not important)




    Blisterwood stake


    Damage: 672


    Accuracy: 1486


    As you probably notice: armadyl setup has higher accuracy and Blisterwoodstake has higher damage


    What is best ?


  8. Hi


    I'm currently doing lots of slaying to get points for upgrading the toolbelt 


    I'm using the "standard" method for quickly getting point by doing 9 tasks for Mazchna and then doing the 10th. for Duradel or the highest slayer master


    However, I sometimes forget how many task I have done in a row, so I would like to know if it is possible to look it up somewhere ?


  9. Hi


    I have just done the quest Demon slayer and I noticed that the name of the main NPC is wrong !


    His name is not Grüfeld Bach


    His name is: Gideon Bede


    Why is this important ? - because he is the starting point of the quest !



  10. Hi


    When I search in the Sort By Stats part of the Item Database I often find it a bit troublesome simply because I'm not able to sort the table the way I want !


    The search options I'm seeking are for example.


    1. exclude armour/weapons which are degradable


    2. only show 1h weapons or only show 2h weapons


    I don't know if it will be too cumbersome for the tip.it crew to add

  11. Hi


    I have just noticed that the roofs on buildings have come back - well, it is not like they weren't there before, but I had chosen not to see them ! (you all know what I'm talking about)


    anyway, since they have come back on with out my interaction, then I would like to know if I can make them not display again ? - I have been look in the setup to find a checkbox I could tick on/off, but I haven't found any !


    So, can anyone help me ?


    Thank you in advance

  12. Hi


    From reading through this thread and seeing the times you guy take to clear a floor then I must be doing something seriously wrong !


    I usually take well over an hour - roughly 1 hour and 20 min. to clear a floor :eek:


    However, I also do a bit of skilling while I'm there so I guess this has something to do with it...


    I can clear a floor on complexity 1 and size small in about 8 - 15 minutes and I'll guesstimate that if I rush a floor with complexity 6 and size medium this would take me at least 30 minutes.


    In regards to experience I get from completing a floor then I must that the screenshot provided by @Tui puzzles me a little, because I simply can't recall that I have ever recieved this much experience for a floor, so I must be doing something wrong.


    - just my 2c -

  13. Right-Click the staff I believe.


    Hi Sy


    As always you're right !


    However, I'm a 100% sure that I was only able to select 'Cast plank make' and, because the ''Charge-staff plank make' option wasn't there when I posted yesterday, but strangely enough it all worked when I tried today ! - even when I removed the charges and did it all over one more time to be sure.


    Anyway, now it seems to be working again so I won't worry about it (until it happens again, that is !)
