Graardor by far,

Yes it would be, but with your stats I don't think you can effectively boss hunt. :thumbdown:

With your levels, you shouldn't even consider boss monsters. Not even the mole.

I would have to go with Graardor.

Giant mole is consistant drops, but I don't see making a ton of money there.

KBD is fun, but his best drop is a Draconic Visage; quite rare if I remember correctly.

Chaos Elemental....drops a dragon 2h and thats about it?

K'ril is hard to solo in my opinion due to his special attack hitting through prayer. Only notable drop is a Zamorak hilt and spear, with Graardor you'll have 3 drops worth a lot compared to just 1.

At your stats, mole would probably be best.

The problem isn't that you can't kill Graardor. The problem is the competition from level 130+, ags, yak, overload people who like to kill him too. You will have difficulty finding a team and difficulty soloing.

PM me in game anytime

I've killed all of them before, they're not that hard if you have the correct gear and equipment.
I dont really mind the difficulty, i just want to know the best, most efficiant one.
So apparently it's graardor?
What should i bring there?
I have a 7 mil budget and torag's body and legs and whip and slayer helm and obsidian cape, dragon boots, ring of wealth, glory amulet and combat brace already in my bank.

It's not about being able to kill them; it's about being able to kill them effectively. Meaning the ability to kill a good number before needing to leave - because you'll need to bank, restock, get back to GWD and re-aquire the kill count.

You don't want to be spending a while getting the 40 kill count and then barely managing a kill. Also, never forgot that you will almost always be crashed when someone see's your level and decides they could easily beat you to the kill, and that's considering you find a empty world in the first place.

Have fun! :thumbup:

P.S. I've camped at the kbd before, got 3 kills and had competition, but they got bored and left becuase i got all the rewards :P

Probably because most high levels go to GWD for boss hunting and the KBD is more of a 'Boss-Monster-for-lower-levels', so I bet your 'competition' were fairly low leveled.

Nonetheless, onto the mole:

# Gold: 3000
# 100%: Big bones, Mole skin(1-3), Mole claw
# Weapon: Adamant longsword, Mithril battleaxe, Mithril hatchet, Rune spear, Rune 2h sword, Adamant javelin(20), Rune javelin(5), Rune battleaxe, Dragon spear
# Armour: Rune med helm, Mithril platebody, Mithril chainbody, Dragon med helm, Rune kiteshield, Rune sq shield
# Runes/Arrows: Air(105), Fire(105), Death(7-45), Law(15-45), Blood(15), Nature(62,67), Iron(690), Steel(150), Rune(42)
# Misc: Shark(1,4), Bass, Iron ore(100 noted), Silver Ore(100 noted), Mithril bar, Runite bar, Yew logs(100 noted), Amulet of strength, Amulet of glory, Amulet of power, Oyster pearls, Uncut gems, Cut dragonstone, Loop half of a key, Tooth half of a key, Shield left half(dragon), Long bone, Curved bone, Nature Talisman

If you think those drops are worth the time spent killing the mole, then go ahead. At the end of the day, do what you enjoy. :wink:

Is the mole often crowded?
I think i'll go there and have a look to see how much profit i make and how many kills i can get.

Three kills is not good. You're much better off camping chaos druids. You're not going to have much luck at the mole, either.

My advice would be to train skills until you get 95+ stats, 88/96/99 summ, 88/91 herb, 70/95 prayer. Then go monster hunt.

If you want to do an activity for fun, go play soul wars. It's decent prayer xp :thumbsup: If you get even 1 zeal point a game, that's like 2K xp at your level, which is worth about 50K gp. If you get 3 zeal points a game, that's 150K!

That's a bit uncalled for. I agree he doesn't have Boss stats yet, but don't try to belittle him :shame:

Sounds quite rude in context.
Yet, ironically, not a bad idea at current prices.

Or moss giants with lunar.
Or castlewars ogres.
Or any of the other fast bone droppers, if you can find a good bank method.

When people say monster hunting, they usually discuss bosses, but plenty of nonboss monsters give really good drops.

Anyway, bone collecting is really profitable right now, with curses being so desirable.
Whether you should go for dragons or babydragons or big bones depends not only on your ability to fight, but possibly more importantly, your ability to bank.
There's some really close big bones to banks/teleports.
Disclaimer: The above is probably inaccurate.

Next time read the numerous posts already made before you make your own.

Jad, really? The original poster wanted to boss hunt for profit.

As others have said, I wouldn't really bother doing GWD until you're maxed with good gear/stats/herblore/prayer etc.

However, if you can muster 88 Summoning and do WGS, I'd recommend doing Tormented Demons, as your stats are good enough for that and it's not terribly crowded. It's more profitable than GWD imo.

How much are furies these days? 10m?
Depending on how much you spend to kill it, could very well be profitable.
