this thread used to be about how bandos tassets is worse than dharok legs. this was edited after my post on the 3rd page. some one mentioned bandos plate and i got mad at his post for getting off topic so instead of getting mad i made this thread about all bandos armor and dharok armor (there's dragon boots thrown in there)



ok basically bandos is the root of all evil. it's expensive dumb and just not usefull. godsword territory is not to be entered!

these are the stats for bandos: plate, boots, tassets. all of which pale in comparison to dharok.



now the only argument that can be made is the argument that bandos plate has a +4 strength bonus over dharok plate. fighter torso has a +4 strength bonus as well an can easily be used in place. however. fighter torso doesn't have as good defense bonuses as bandos does. then you can make the argument about how if you want defense bonuses then you should just use dharok plate. it's a triangle argument /_\ *that's a triangle (:*

. . . . . . . . . . . .stab slsh crush mage rng str

Bandos Plate +98 +93. . .+105. . -6 +133 +4

dharok plate +122 +120 +107 . . -6 +132 0

result:

bandos plate: 11.7m

Dharok Plate: 189.0k



. . . . . .stab slsh crush mage rng str

tassets +71 +63 +66. . .-4 +93 +2

dh legs +85 +82 +83. . .-4 +92 0

result:

dharok legs are 304.1k

tassets are 9m



. . . . . . . . . . . .stab slsh crush str

bandos boots +17 +18 +19. . +0

Dragon boots +16 +17 +18. . +4

result:

Dragon boots: 293.4k

Bandos boots: 1.1m



here are the previous thread contents so you're not completely lost.







so here's the best defense in the game setup right here: dfs, verac's plateskirt, torag/verac/guthan helmet, dragon boots, dragon gaunlets, fire cape, some stupid ring, obby staff, fury.

after all's said and done, you have 21.094m







the most expensive thing there is the dfs and if you eliminate that, you're left with that 200m shield. then crystal full shield. after all of that you've spent 4819k (4.8m) (with crystal shield instead of dfs).



if this gets to be a hot topic i'd be rather pleased :<img src=:' />

This thread is probably better than pro wrestling because the fights here are real (And the boobs).

oh yeah and it has a +2 str and +1 prayer, but honestly is that worth 8m?




Yes.



I agree that for the poorer people, they're not worth it. But for those of us with a decent amount of money, they're great.



And you are really immature if you are actually critizing them because it's a skirt. Rofl. :thumbdown:

I see what you're saying, but seriously, Tassets absolutely OWN Dharok's Legs in looks.

I thought it was the other way around.



Tassets aren't great, nothing new.

But two str bonus? Thats junk. Unless you can prove that having two extra strength bonus really will have affects on how you kill them, then, I see no reason to blow 8M on it.

65 def requirement, no decay < 70 Def requirement balanced with decay usually.

Though they ARE the only legwear with Strength of any kind, are far harder to get than Dharok's stuff, and last as long as you have them for.

But with price drops on the tasset, and the barrows legs barely fluctuating, at low prices anyway, when your done with a tasset you could have lost 500k just from price drops, where barrows is only 90k at max?

The argument on stats is all dependent on playing style. While Verac's offers little in the way of actual defense, it is the only Barrows set which includes bonus to Prayer. When you run low on food and health, your protection prayers can last a lot longer with Verac's. On the other hand, outright defense might be what most people go for and in that case, dharok's would be an advantage. As far as Bandos, it might not entirely be about the defense properties, so much as the bragging rights and show-off aspect. After all, it's one of those expensive items that actually serve a purpose, unlike party hats or Halloween masks. Or even better, shows off their ability to take on the God Wars Dungeon.



Keep in mind, pride is one of the ever-present factors in RuneScape, and sometimes can be the cause of many an argument.

I've always preferred Barrows over all other armor. The Defense bonus is insane for how much it costs.

''there's no set bonus''



I can see the points of the rest of your rant, but that ^ is just utter rubbish. There is no set bonus on dh legs either, and certain set ups with tassets will certainly out perform full dh, making that point completely irrelevent.



Yea bro i see people with full veracs and i'm all like pfffft just get dharoks its got higher def.




The set effect of veracs is more usefull, in more areas that dh.

Seriously for people who have money tassets is a good option because of the str bonus..I mean if you have the money

Why not spend it..I can understand where the people who do not have mills to spend

are coming from. Dh legs are beast def but tassets are worthwile for the richer player in my opinion.

And the thing about looks? thats just rubbish...skirts are cool these days brah

if you didn't look at the stats before buying it, there just is no help for you. tassets are for people who want the strength bonus, and perhaps don't want to have to be repairing equipment at all.

Coming from the man who says "brah".



And your richness thing, thats not always true. Iv got 32M in the bank, yet Im wearing my trusty dharoks top and legs. Way better armor bonus than bandos, and I hate price drops.

you people are officially excessively concerned with your clothes, grooming, and manners

I am.



Tassets don't degrade, look much nicer, and when you add in the factor of conspicuous consumption these are a much better choice for me than Dharok's legs.
I love to meet people; send me a pm if you see me on RuneScape! :)
