If you're taking too much damage, get a Zamorak trimmed rune skirt, see how that fairs out. Doesnt cost too much and no need to leave to fix it if you plan on staying a long time.



If you have the money, go for a DFS like Death said. If you dont, honestly, dont bother. But a fury would help more than a DFS would :|
I dont need a siggy no moar.

I think you should keep your granite shield over having the unholy book. You're losing a whopping 65 ranged defence.

Keep Granite Shield and get a Fury, then maybe if you are getting hit too much, use verac skirt. Training your defence would mean that you could eventually swap Granite shield for Unholy book, although DFS beats everything else.

Why veraks skirt? I dont think tanking involves prayer.

10%.



To OP: Get Verac's helm+skirt and unholy book.

Ah, this reminds me about the noob on the Runescape forums who was upset with the quest "Cold War" because apparently his grandparents died in the war. :wall:

With your stats you'll get hit too much to justify that setup. At 81 defense with a bunyip I have a similar setup which just about works (ok I don't use any tabs, but tabs are a hassle).

Try replacing the legs or body with a barrows piece.



At your levels do not use unholy book for tanking.

Fury is amazing all round if you can afford it.

Bandos boots.... well personally I use these on/off. On weeknights and busy times they allow you to get 2/3 extra re-spawns which you would normally get hit using, but the rest of the time there an overkill.

the equipment i use now works perfectly fine (it's the one above) i get hit sometimes, but the extra +10 that the helm gives to ranged attack gives faster kills.



if i use unholy book i could replace the zammy d'hide chaps with torag legs giving more defense.
