Am i ready for this? ~

Recommended Posts

Hi there, i am now very close to my goal of a bandos godsword (17m/17.3m) And i was wondering, is it worth buying? As in the aspect of, are my combat skills high enough to make it worth buying?

 

 

 

Another option would be a dfs + whip. Please give me your thoughts on this.

 

 

 

My combat skills are: 83 attack, 83 stength, 73 defence (i would obviously train it for a dfs) 82 hitpoints, 58 prayer.

 

 

 

i'd be greatful for any advice given, thanks. ::'

Not much point tbh. DFS+whip is better in most cases.


Many believe that the 1980 eruption of Mt. Saint Helens was a catostrophic geological event, in reality it was the day that Jimi Hendrix returned to Earth from the next world and actually stood up next to a mountain and chopped it down with the edge of his hand.

I don't have much experience with them but most of the time, people with whip and dfs get more kills per trip.

Thanks for the advice, but does any one who's had them both and tested them for different things, (Eg: GWD, Pvm ect..)

I've never actually tested it, but from what I've heard, whip + dfs is better in almost any case. The extra defense is great for bosses and the dfs is great for pking and boss monsters. The only time a godsword would be better that I can think of is 1 item pking, but if you're going to do that, you'd be better off with d claws for only a couple million more.

If you are planning on doing slayer, a BGS is more useful than whip + DFS. Instead use whip + defender, and then for monsters with higher defence (Abyssal demons, Gargoyles, and also Waterfiends), you can use the Godsword. Also when you are doing prayer tasks (Black demons, Dark beasts etc) the prayer bonus on the GS is useful. At higher def levels, the bonus from the DFS isn't actually needed, but you might find that you do need it until you get to about 90 defence.

Whip and defender is best for slayer, i would argue Saradomin Godsword is the only other alternative for a primary slayer weapon. BGS is slow, and the spec is useless for slayer.

 

Whip and defender is fast, and most slayer monsters have low defence.

 

 

 

Use a BGS for monster hunting or minigames like castle wars.

 

 

 

And when was the last time Gargoyles had high defence? I take them down so easily with just a whip.

I'd save those money, as BGS wouldn't do any good at your stats. And tbh, don't bother with DFS, the old boring defender are and will be the best shield for melee.

Dagannoth kings drops: 73

Barrows item count: 51

GWD drops: 54 (5 hilts: 1x bandos, 3x saradomin, 1x zamorak)

Whips: 4

For [bleep] sake does every [bleep]ing person who wants a [bleep]ing bgs [bleep]ing underrate defence all the [bleep]ing time? What you want 75 for a [bleep]ing dfs and you're done with it til you want 138 combat? Kudos.

Dunno, just wanted to see someones reaction.

 

Seriously though, why do people think "Omg strength is SO awesome because PURES have high strength, and defence sucks because they have 1!"?

You could buy it and then go to GWD or something to gain some more cash back.

 

That's what I was thinking.

You're also close to maxed melee stats and have no need for the def boost of the dfs, whereas someone with 75 def will probably need it a lot more no matter if he decides to go boss hunting or if he gets a mildly difficult slayer task.

I have almost 79 defence and I havent found one spot other than Bosses or possibly hard quest monsters to use a DFS over a Defender to be honest.

 

But DFS is so sexy. Defenders just a little blue butterknife.

That was uncalled for.

 

Dfs=Whip is better, if you get the BGS im sure you'll get bored with it quickly, as with everyone I know with a BGS had done.

well get a guy of 60 str, 60 def, 60 def fight a pure with 1 def... i know who i'll be voting for -.-

 

pures is good for low level. at high level they suck bc of the lack of defence.

 

 

 

ot go with dfs and whip, faster kills means more money... on the other hand you should take what you like more! (a whip is good but i get bored with the weapon quickly)
