While the guide is ok, it is still missing alot of information. One thing that you should be sure to add, is recommended starting stats, quests to be completed and also items (not armour and weapons, but things like glories, tablets and such).
Something else that is vital that you are missing is the experience rates. Only then can you truly compare efficiency. Saying that this guide is based on being efficient and that you aren't basing it solely on preferance contradicts the information given. One example is with the Gargoyles.
Eh, I hate these. Not because of anything besides they're tendency to fly around all jittery making it hard to use the Rock hammer, and it takes a LOT of attention to finish this task at a reasonable speed. Anyways, there are two locations to kill them.
Wether you decide to kill them, it's straight up annoying. If you kill them in Chaos tunnels (recommended) you can use a combat familiar. If not, just go to the Slayer tower. Try to be fast when clicking these, and have the hammer already on the Gargoyle before it's hp bar goes down. It move around so much it takes a while before you can actually click it, it's so annoying.
Wear standard melee equipment.
Using the Rock Hammer on them isn't as hard as you make it out to be. Personally when I kill them, I have the Hammer selected and I right-click on the gargoyle ready to use it. So no matter how much it moves, I have the ability to use the Hammer without delay. It is also helpful to predict when the gargoyle will be able to be hit with the hammer, even if it wasn't vulnerable, just reclick attack, no time is lost. Also, Gargoyles are weak to Crush attacks, making the Saradomin Sword, or a Godsword more efficient for this task. Finally, you said there are two spots to kill these, but you never mentioned how to get to either (although most may already know, you should add this anyway). As Morningrise333 also said on page 3, however unlike what was said, Whip is still better than the Zamorakian Spear for these.
In the kalphite section you said "They drop blue charms, which is a bad thing.
" and I think that is a mistake
:' /> . Also, there is no need for a combat familiar here, with the cannon in the right spot, you barely have to do any work. The majority of your time is spent waiting for them to respawn.
In the Nechryael section you said "To get there, go to the Zamorak mage (entrance to abyss) and go down the ropes next to him. You are now in the Chaos tunnels. There should be 4 gargoyles, and head northwest.
" I think you meant the entrance to the west of the the Zamorak mage, not the one near it.
Also for Fire Giants, you should should mention using Melee+Cannon in the waterfall dungeon. It is faster than using Range+Cannon.

- I don't think your range level affects how good your cannon works. If this is true, drinking a range pot while using a cannon would be useless.You can if you use Spellbook swap... I thought I mentioned that, again, I guess I forgot.... and a range pot does affect a cannon's range bonus.
Your range level does not affect how often or high a cannon hits. Neither does your range bonus either.
Zamorak Cloak (From Treasure Trails) + Rune Defender is much better than Fire Cape + Unholy Book for spiritual mages. Because you are praying, the defense on the fire cape means nothing.
The most common combination people seem to use is with the unholy book, which isn't the most efficient option either. Using a Zamorak Cloak and Rune Defender isn't the best either. The best option is a Fire Cape and Rune Defender, the Zamorak item you wear is Zamorak Robe Bottoms for 1 less prayer bonus than Proselyte. (Just saw that Morningrise333 has mentioned this on page 3, but this reinforces what was said
:' /> ).
You really don't need to pray mage on Suqahs, you can do a task on 10 monks.
In the North section the Suqahs have a magic attack that looks like Ice Barrage (doesn't hit as high, freezes - but not for as long). That is the place ideal to use the cannon, and praying magic is definately advised.
There is alot of errors in the guide still such as spelling, but that can be fixed. Sorry for the long post, but if you really want a guide based on efficiency you need to actually say what is most efficient.
