Rune Defenders aren't impossible to get, but there are a few things you can do to get one faster/more effeciently. If you just go in there and camp a cyclops you're never going to get anything.



The absolute best thing to do is bring a super set, whip/dragon scim, good food depending on how long you're going to stay in the room, wear a ring of wealth(a must) and to circulate through the room either in a clockwise or counter clockwise fashion killing cyclopses. It will do little good to sit and kill the same cyclopse over and over, or even kill them in a random pattern. I have done this many times, and always when I circulate through the room in a cirlce I get a defender MUCH faster.




Yeah, doing that, has nothing to do with chances of getting a defender...

I've spent around 3000 tokens and still cannot get a bronze. Fortunately, I haven't had any need for a defender.

It seems to be much faster after you get your first one. I think after getting the bronze defender I got the next 3 within 5 minutes. You'll probably get it quite soon, just keep at it.

50 Hours (3k tokens) seems like quite a long dry steak. Most likely, they're droppping and you're ignoring them :-P Don't forget: Defenders have no cash value, and as such appear UNDER the big bones and are quite hard to see. Always right-click cyclops drop piles, you might be surprised whats lurking under the bones! As for gear, Sacred Clay Platebody and Legs + Warrior/Zerker/Nieznot Helm and whip with your current defender adds up really, really fast xp even if you arent getting the drops.



The most annoying part is that I can't get back my stupid Black Defender without surrendering my rune one! Why should I have to work my way up to rune again just so I can go retrieve my black defender!

I currently going for a Rune Defender as I write this (Currently on black, and used around 1.5k tokens)



I agree/respect the fact for you being annoyed, having killed so much and not seen any reward would be annoying.

But I don't think they should change it, having it as one of those random/hard to obtain items makes it more fun and enjoyable for when you actually succeed with the task :P



Happy Christmas BTW :)

I just remember it took me the longest to get bronze and rune, but everything in between was a pretty speedy process. I think it took me 5k tokens in all to get my first rune defender.



Also ring of wealth my help? I think I remember a topic about it a year ago if it helps or not, but always worth a try.

Considering his avatar, I think we should listen to Smapla.



I think I'll go back for another round and get a second rune defender. Those cyclops are rather easy to kill, drop a good number of black knives, and hey, why risk losing my only one and starting from scratch again?



But anyway, I suggest you get into the mindset not to get a rune defender, but to get XP, bones, etc. They are pretty weak and offer up some tasty XP, though not the fastest. Think of the defenders as a surprise. And make sure you always keep your second highest defender in the bank or when you get to rune, 2 rune defenders. You surely don't want to have to restart the process all over again :lol:

No such thing as luck on a computer. I program (not an expert, to be sure :P ), and you cannot create or do anything random on a computer. There is a SET drop rate somewhere in Jagex servers, if you kill a googolplex of them, you'll get exactly that many kills, on average, between defenders. I'd write out a googolplex to show you it, but even if each numeral was the size of an atom there wouldn't be enough space in the universe (by a factor of 24+) to write it. And that's writing the digits, not the number itself. (Yeah, I like numbers). Still, it's not random, it's precise and accurate. Just because you can only view a tiny sample range doesn't make it 'luck', it's like saying that rolling a dice is 'luck' - a machine designed to roll a die exactly the same way every time will get exactly the same number every time.
