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 (:*

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 :' />
