Karils only used for mage def, not the set effect, but the bow actually hits pretty well but bolt racks are expensive.




I agree. :thumbup:

You sir, are hilarious and ignorant.



Karil's effect has always been horrible, but the body and skirt's magic defenses are what make it valuable. Also, the bow is not bad, as it has good accuracy with mid-range hits, and can shoot almost as far as the crystal bow. Also, ti is considered one of the best tools to kill the KQ's second form with.

Karil's has good mage defence, good range attack, and a good weapon. The set effect is just a bonus. Don't cry over something extra. I suppose it's better than nothing, as Karil's is good enough as it is without the effect.

Karil's crossbow is an improved mage short bow. Same speed, better damage, higher cost. It's nice but not game breaking.



The mage set's effect has always sucked as well. The staff already forced you to lose a shield, as well as completely prohibiting god spells (so useless to modern magic) and no autocast for ancients. The strength drain is nice, but the cost in everything else has always been too high, so it never got used.

lol. every mage uses arhims lol they just swich out the staff for autocasting purposes.



karil's is definatly the rarest barrows armour you will see anyone in. especially full karils lol

karils is the least usefull barrows in my opinion.

Meant the set effect never got used, everybody has a set of Ahrim.



I see Karil top and body out a lot, it's like required Castle Wars gear. I've had my set for ages and I don't plan on selling it anytime soon.

Neither do I.



My ranged is my only non-max combat skill and even with a measly 79 range I'll beat any mage in a 1v1.

Using obstacles and ice, you can effectively freeze any ranger so that you can attack them, but they cannot attack you. If you need proof, PM me, I'll fight you in Clan Wars, or, better yet, secluded place in PvP worlds (I can't stand PJ'ers)

Karil's skirt/body is great for slayer. It's basically cheap mage defense making loads of tasks easier, including Waterfiends, Bloodveld, Infernal Mages, Abby Spectres, Scrabites and Mithril Dragons.



The coif and set effect is junk yes, and the bow is only semi-usful with the introduction of crossbows.



Like someone said the only decent part of the set effect was to trap noobs in the Wildy agilty course for an easy kill. However nowadays most Wildy agility trainers use a non-PvP world and all they ever carried back in the day was an inven full of cakes.

Trust the Gene Genie!

1) As I explained but you plainly ignored, I can attack you without you attacking me, and I can also prove this if you like.

2) Magic has a longer range than EVERY range weapon except 1.

3) We have gotten off topic. If you want proof, PM me ingame. If not, then stop saying ignorant things that just aren't true about Magicians.
