Dharok beats Bandos so bad *Revamped Again*

Recommended Posts

IF you re fighting in a place where you are constantly taking damage, (Bosses etc...) then DH is better. But standard training, where you are not getting hit, BANDOS and its +2 str wins.

 

 

 

In places where you won't really be getting hit much Bandos beats Barrows. Just because you have 5 less pray doesn't mean that you can't piety. The 7 strength bonus for top and bottom raises your max by almost 2 over dharok.

 

 

 

Yeah over all Dharok is better to have, and really Bandos probably isn't worth it, but it can be helpful. You can't say that Bandos isn't better in places like Dusties or Greaters where that little extra strength bonus can speed it up a bit.

 

+13 prayer vs. +6 strength. Not really a contest, your prayer will drain WAY faster with bandos. That 'little extra' +10% or piety prayer can speed it up a lot.

 

 

 

Sure it would drain faster, but I said, in places where you are constantly training. Using P pots and banking every once on a while is not idea. Sure, your prayer WOULD last longer, but in the LONG run, Bandos wins. Its like the story of the tortois and the hare. The hare is abviously "better" at first, but eventually, the turtle wins.

 

+10% strength = 1 point every 12 seconds. 24 points per dose @ 84 prayer + 84 inital. Each prayer pot is 20 minutes of prayer, plus the initial 17 minutues. So a typical slayer invo (for me) of 15 prayer pots = over 5 hours of killing. Quite handy, considering that the 'good' camping spot (armored zombies) doesn't need this, leaving slayer as the main use. And most of my tasks take less then 5 hours, I can usually get by with 1-2 prayer pots. Point invalidated.

true monster hunters would use bandos plate because it has a decent str bonus and a pray bonus, with not to shabby defense. Plus it looks nice, giving you everything you usualy look for. Then combine that with verac skirt as it has amazing, alot more than tassets and gives an amazing +4 pray bonus compared to +2 str of tassets. verac skirt is pure win.

 

 

 

bandos top with verac skirt doesnt look to bad either.

Kinda official how any barrows melee armour owns bandos for slayer, or normal monster hunting, and some bosses too.

 

 

 

And btw, a stole + verac skirt + torag/guthan/dharok body is better than a proselyte + fury + verac skirt. :P


I dont need a siggy no moar.

i went and figured that with a firecape,bandos, a neitiznot, barrows gloves, d boots, a salve ammy (e)*against undead*, zerker ring and an ags*with the special* you will hit more or less 84.

 

 

 

 

 

with full dharoks plus the gloves,boots and ammy you will hit *assuming you have 1 hp* you will hit 97...

 

those are both large numbers... but they have thier uses

 

 

 

dharoks is good for pest controll,training at yaks/ghouls.

 

 

 

bandos is perfect for impressing noobs,lending,some bosses *mostly bandos,kbd,mole and others*.

 

 

 

so the point is!!! they have thier places... dharok for training at things that dont really hit.

 

Bandos for prettymuch every thing else

And he was referring to dharoks and a whip and defender. Best defence, best offense. Bandos has crappy defence, DH has crappy offense. Bandos is useless, use veracs skirt + helm and DH top with whip + defender for the best possible monster hunting outfit.

i wasn't referring to the set effect of dharoks, i was referring to the defense bonuses.

 

 

 

and dharok doesn't have crappy defense bonuses. in fact, it has one of the best in the game. if you want to go into the price range of about, 50 million i don't think you can get any better defense. for less than 1.5m you can get a lot of bang for your buck.

 

 

 

i didn't expect this thread to come back but either way i think this is a good argument. :D

I think dharoks > 3rd age. I may be wrong but i think it is.

i've checked and 3rd infact isn't the best armor in the game- thanks pureprayer.

 

 

 

torag's helmet is better than dharoks (and ironically cheaper. odd how the best armor in the game is also of the cheapest) however. don't know if i said that yet but i'm throwing it out there.

 

 

 

verac's plateskirt has better range protection than dharok's platelegs by 8 points, as well as a +4 prayer bonus (it's 200k more expensive which, among other armors, makes sense).

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

i researched all of those items and they have the best defense bonuses in the game. they can't be beaten by any single piece of armor as of now. you're welcome.

It would be nice if Jagex gave us a slot in the equipment interface to show our current max hit and dps, but sadly, that seems "too good".

 

 

 

The simple argument of if the chest/tassets are worth it is a simple plug of numbers into the max hit formula.

 

I'm sure this isn't the case with everyone, but as of right now, it takes 13 equipment strength points to raise my max hit by +2 (7 for the first +1 and then an additional 6 for the next +1). It is quite possible that despite the fact that I may have the maximum strength bonus, I could have up to 6 less strength bonus points (and trade in bandos for dh) and hit EXACTLY the same.

 

 

 

I actually lol every time I see someone in bandos and be a lower level. It just makes me feel sad that quite possibly they spent their money for absolutely no gain.

 

 

 

On the plus side, Bandos does offer better ranged defense than dharok, which makes it better suited for anti-range warriors. Then again, everyone hybrids, so who cares? :wall:

you only have +2 points range defense points for bandos so it's very insignificant.

 

 

 

what's wrong with being a hybrid?.... i prefer that i'm not a result from inbreeding *that's a genetics pun by the way :thumbup: *
