Plus, dharoks maintenance isnt really that much of a hassle, less than 70k every 15 hours of combat isnt a big ask, considering it's easily possible to make 150k+ in 2 hours of combat.




It's not the money, it's the hassle. Believe me, I've been using barrows since the day it came out. I've repaired my set of guthans probably 50 times. Sure, it only takes a couple minutes to repair, but after too many repairs it gets just plain annoying, like a bad random event. Hell, before the GWD I would train in rune or dragon at times to save the repairs.



Bandos is a solid piece of armor with more than sufficient defense stats, a tiny str bonus, and it's completely no hassle. A full set of bandos looks better than a generic set of barrows and it requires no annoying trips to the POH for repairs.



Not everything has to be based off pure logic, you know.

Sorry, but your argument is still weak, 5 minutes of your time every 15 hours is still not a big ask, even if you're not useing the modern spellbook, you can just buy a home-tab from the ge, there's no excuse really.



By no means I'm I telling you not to use Bandos, go for it, I don't really care, I'm just saying that Dharoks (or torags) is the smarter option. There are plenty of people who agree Bandos looks better, but there are also plenty of people who think it looks like a [kitty] skirt.

10 seconds of your time every 10 minutes isn't bad either, but that doesn't make me love Niles or the Sandwich lady.

ah yes, but you see, that's different, because random have NO POINT, whereas repairing barrows is preparation, just like restocking food or potions. Not to mention that 10 seconds is 1.6% of 10 minutes compared to 5 minutes which is 0.5% of 15 hours, but hey, I recognise that you were just taking figures off the top of your head.

Preparation that is totally optional.



Remember, money is no object. The extra +10 def or whatever it is is completely useless when training. Look at it this way;

Marginal strength bonus (why not?)

Asthetics (Bandos plate with DH legs...no thanks)

No hassle



No reason not to use it.

Ok... lets take a different perspective.



You have ~20mil and the choice to buy either:



Dharoks plate and legs for ~500k with most of your money left over.



Or the Bandos Plate and tasstes for all of the money you possess.



Both sets of armor are almost equivilant in terms of effectivness in combat, but if you had chosen the Dharoks set, you could have easily invested that ~19mil you had left over into something else that would benefit you, either combat or non-combat.



So who's better off?



One could argue that the bandos choice would look much "cooler" and more appealing, but really the dharok choice is by far, economically, the superior option.



19mil can go a long way, alot further than a set of bandos.



But, if you have money to spare, good for you.

Never said it was for everybody. It's a toy for people that can afford it. If it breaks your bank, don't buy it, it's definitely not an essential, but if you can good for you.

huh :-s? first off.... we're talking about tassets.... not plate... 2nd off... you're spelling is horrendous. third- i'd prefer dharok plate over bandos plate if i was to be going somewhere that has powerful monsters. if i was going to kill like greater demons then i'd bring myself bandos plate. right now i bring fighter torso which has +4 strength bonus (which is the same as bandos plate anyway) so right not your response seems rather bleak.



and you know what?! dragon boots are better than bandos boots!! they have a +4 strength bonus and bandos has none! bandos boots are 1.1m and dragon boots are 230k and falling.

god damn it jagex! you made quite possibly the dumbest armor ever and introduced it to the dumbest crowd i've ever seen!



oh this topic is getting revamped to how stupid bandos armor is in a whole....

Lol...you do know the entire reason bandos boots have value is because of the GWD, right?



Drama queen.



Look up zammy or sara bracers sometime, they're inferior to barrows gloves and barely noticable when worn, but they still have value for the same reason. There's a reason the sara and zammy bracers are at 270k and 370k ea when guthix sell for 11.5..

point= invalid.



cacmypants= bandos boots and bandos pool have nothing to do with each other. at all. not even relevant. not even close. not even in the same ballpark. or country.

Im P2P, 90 defence and i use Runite for my armor. i Win. :<img src=:' />



personally, it all depends on what the USER prefers. i personally want full bandos because i've never been a fan of repairing and who knows? barrows "Might" break on you at the worst possible moment, bandos you wont need to even think of it. plus depending on your Defence Level, (Me for Example) i can compensate the Difference in defensive stats with my defence level so the Str Bonus is a Bonus to me, even if its slight.

I don't know wtf you're on about, but this comment invalidates your opinions completely.



cacmypants= bandos boots and bandos pool have nothing to do with each other. at all. not even relevant. not even close. not even in the same ballpark. or country.




They have everything to do with each other. You were [bleep]ing about bandos boot's price, when the entire reason they are worth something (along with the sara and zammy bracers) is because people wear them when doing the GWD to protect themselves from that god's minions. I have a pair myself, even though I hate the look, for slayering in the Bandos encampment. He was mentioning that he doesn't wear the boots because he uses the Bandos pool instead, but a lot of people including myself prefer to just use the boots because it doesn't wear off in one hour and doesn't force you to travel halfway around the map.



Nobody is so deluded to think that Bandos boots are better than dragon, they wear them for one reason and one alone; for use in the GWD. If it were not for the GWD, I could easily see the price on those boots dropping to the 400k range.



Not to mention your comment that bandos armor is just not useful is about as far fetched as it comes. Bandos plate is the perfect combination between defense and strength bonus for training in most cases, and honestly, when training, the +6 strength you are losing by wearing dh will affect you much more than the 30ish defense. On a max strength player, that's an xp increase on average of around 2-3k more xp per hour at the cost of nothing you will miss.



Honestly, the impression I'm getting from your thread is of somebody who is jealous that he can't afford the latest status armor and so is dissing everybody else that can.

I say they both suck. Get a proselyte plate with a verac's skirt and use piety. Beats both of them rather easily. And let's not forget that the bandos plate gives a prayer bonus. I don't see dharok's plate doing that.

Not in the least. +23% strength and +20% attack is quite an immense boost. And there's that +25% defence boost that makes up for the pathetic defence of proselyte.
