Hello and welcome to my Cockroach Soldier Extermination guide. This is a Free to Play Guide as I am currently Free to Play, but the techniques can be carried across to Pay to Play, Just swap to the best possible armour and weapons available to you :) .



Roach Soldiers are probably the most rewarding and profitable thing to kill in the Free to Play game. Although I haven’t spent much time comparing, I have been assured that they are a lot more profit and help gain more XP then Lesser Demons and because of their relative closeness to Edgeville Bank and the Grand Exchange, they make life easier.

I started killing Roaches when I needed cash because I was down to a set of rune and 200k cash. I've logged all of the trips I've made so you can see how profitable, and unprofitable at times, Roaches can be :) one run takes me around 20 minutes.

Nice Guide Needs a lil bit more content tho i personaly used Cockraoches as a source of money when i was FTP and this is a decent guide but i would show several diferent inventory choices and also diferent gear choices for diferent types of players (pures,rangers) also you can range them quite efectivly jsut stand next to them while you do with full green d hide and rune full helm.

At 85 range with mith arrows in f2p, I always beat meleer's to the kill on these. Good guide never the less.



Also, change 'skimmy' to 'scimitar' and anything like it because it looks more professional.

Also, for your gear, change the amulet of strength to amulet of power. Hitting more often is better then hitting 1 damage higher.

You said to use green d'hide vambraces to boost the defence bonus, shouldn't these, therefore, be replaced by rune gauntlets which give a higher defensive bonus?



Good guide though :thumbup:

Good guide but in the killing section you put 45 prayer, instead of 43

A couple tips on these...



#1 rune gauntlets from fog their charge doesn't go away so they are great f2p gloves



#2 a cornucopia(sp?) from the thanksgiving event can effectively turn a cake into a lobster so its cheaper and better than tunas. (and using the cake on it doesn't take a combat turn(so I'm told))



#3 I think power amulets +6 to attack style is better than the str amulets



#4 And this place can be a nice fun place for medium levels to lootshare on.

Great guide, but I have a few questions.

How do you enter the Roach chambers? I tried to enter the crevasse, but it wouldn't let me.
Also, what levels is this recommended for?

You need to do the tutorial for player safety before you can go down the crevasse.

To do this, I think you need to enter a basement door just south of the crevasse.

Unfortunately, I can't see the images due to imageshack being down. Can you upload in Tinypic or Photobucket or something else?

Anyways, you should also add at what recommended stats you should have to kill Cockroach Soldiers. Something like 70 Melee stats or something like that.

Fix the spacing on your guide btw.

Hey i've killed a hundred or more of these suckers and your food is somewhat overrated and you need nowheres near that much armor. On my main bonez899 i can kill a good profit solo only using green d'hide as the armor and a rune scimitar while eating only salmon. Now my main only haves all combat stats just over 60 and i think you overrate.
Anyway the most of my comment is to say you dont need tuna or lobsters just use salmon and you can camp there if you want.

i've been training there for the past year or so, and for what its worth, at 115+ combat I've been getting 150k to 400k worth of drops each trip, using full rune, power ammy, and cakes.

if you're higher combat, try to find a world where you know you will out-damage other players, then encourage them to attack your roach.
you'll get faster kills and faster drops (even if you manage to lose a couple kills).
you wouldn't get as much exp, but i assume since youre training on roaches, youre not there for really fast exp anyway.

good guide, but you might want to put tele runes in their as well, they can be useful if you're 1 hit away from dying. And you seem to be having really good luck with you drops, are you a pretty high level (combat 80+)? Wish i was that lucky. Overall good guide.

Uhmm nice guide to start off with..

Suggestions: 1.Maybe you should show what Different equipments you can bring.
2.You should include needed levels for fighting them(Ex. At least 55 Def is a MUST but 60 is highly recommended AND at least 60 Str is a MUST but 70 is highly recommended) So people know not to go at 40 def, 40 att, and 40 str.

Just work on those for now a 6/10

Pretty good. I recomend this for low level members too. With 71 atk 68 atr and 61 def I can manage on cheese potatoes(2hour trip) with full rune.
