I like the choice of songs in the vids. Other than that, one of the best guides that I have seen so far!

Excellent guide, your explanation is as clear as it can be and the videos enlighten me even more =D> now off-topic for a second: what piano compositions did you use in those videos? I absolutely loved the background music.

Chuck Norris doesn't ever need a compass; he randomly points somewhere and north goes there in order not to anger him.

The only flax I could find: In the melee inventory you bring a summoning potion, it would be more efficient to bring a super restore instead of one prayer potion, super restores restore summoning points too.



Otherwise, amazing guide. :thumbup:

Very nice guide. However, if you're seeking efficiency then slayer is best for raising total xp as slayer and summoning xp comes along with it - I guess this is if you want 200m xp as quickly as possible. :P



For those skeletons with dharoks, wouldn't a rock cake be useful? It allows you to get onto exactly 2hp and doesn't interrupt combat I believe. Or would this be too much hassle?

Amazing. I really never thought of picking up bones and moving them to a certain spot as I thought they wouldn't work.



Congratulations on the achievements and superb guide.

Pretty nice.



I usually bring a super restore as it restores summong instead of a summ pot

Dungeoneering isn't a skill.

Thanks, I'll add that



Do you have any info on how void melee and a whip compares to dharoks there?



Nice guide.


Not really, but I wouldn't expect it to be nearly as effective. The whole point of using the spot is so that the falling rocks and [bleep]e traps can keep your health low for Dharoking, so if you are using other setups there are other undead monsters you can kill that are much more accessible and perhaps more efficient as well.



Very nice guide. However, if you're seeking efficiency then slayer is best for raising total xp as slayer and summoning xp comes along with it - I guess this is if you want 200m xp as quickly as possible. :P



For those skeletons with dharoks, wouldn't a rock cake be useful? It allows you to get onto exactly 2hp and doesn't interrupt combat I believe. Or would this be too much hassle?


I don't think it would be needed at all since your health would be kept low permanently and effortlessly by the falling rocks. Using the spot frees you from the need to do anything special to keep your health low.

Great guide, do you have any idea how much it costs per hour? I'm just wondering, it'd be great if you could mention it.

good guide but i dont think the melee one is good. why?

well i think since the area is multi and when i usually go to the god war dungeon with my full guthan's/karil's/etc as soon as i go pass the trolls it reads:

"your karil's leatherbody has degraded to 100%" or something like that, and that's because of the trolls. so that leads me to believe that its not the amount of time YOU hit them but the other way round(i think).



now in the dungeon you will be attacked my lots of monkeys hence wouldn't that make your armour degrade very very quickly?



im quiet sure what i said is right but you can confirm it if you'd like.
signature your as this use backwards this read to enough smart were you if

Since I'm on dial-up I cannot view your video, so if you answer my question I apologize. Anyway, do you use Eagle eye while chinning, or Piety while dharoking Monkey skeletons? I'm curious if you have found the extra expense to be worth it.



Great guide, I hope to use it to get 99 range when I get lucky at God Wars.
