So which is better, bronze knives, or the bone bolts. Muggi said that the bronze knives were best, but I have seen the majority people using bone bolts.

its up to you, bronze knives are faster but more expensive. 3 times and then some more expensive. they also max out around 14's for me where bone bolts do 20+

Yeah but if you're gonna be using them for a long amount of time, and save for example 50 hours of training, it'll only take 25 hours of earning 300k an hour to make your money back so you ultimately save 25 hours

well at ur range lvl, and the fact that blue dragons have a nice def id use bone xbow...cuz of the extra accuracy



once ur lvl 90 i dont think it matters and u can go bronze knifes easily



but then again its hard to say, test it out urself. \<img src=/' />

I'm level 70 ranged, coming on 71, and I've always (up until now) used a rune c'bow with iron bolts (1k iron built up in bank, made 4k iron bolts for free) or mage bow with bronze arrows. I find that fast enough. However I think I will try bronze knives at bandits.

the thing is, even the bone xbow with bone bolts is faster and stronger than rune c bow and irons, give it a try..

the number..are 'hidden' you need to click the title of the ...bar, hard to explain... like where it says "bronze knifes!" click that..

At what point (defense-wise) do the increased accuracy of bone bolts and black d hide overtake void knight and bronze knives (which assume your target has very low defense)



I'm asking primarily in terms of slayer creatures (fever spiders, bloodvelds, blue drags, nechs, gargoyles...)

Nah, crossbows are still better on dragons than knives, even in the 90s <.<

If I remember correctly, you only get 2xp per hit in PC not 4. So if you got about 330 hits there is no way you could get over 1k xp in game.

yes i know, but i also factored in the points that you get from winning a game. Obviously you didn't read thoroughly or simply didnt understand. #-o
