Assuming none of the rings work for spears, does this make Flame Defender and Hailstorm Dagger best combo? Accuracy put with zerker ring sounds good doesn't it... Apparently Mod Emilee and Mod Mark said different things on rsof, so what's the deal? If spears really work like this then they are garbage and I'd think flame defender and hailstorm dagger really might be best...

Berserk ring info ONLY mentioned on forums, [bleep] you JaGeX?

"If you upgrade the 'Tactician' part of the ring, can you only make use of this class by fighting in an 'accurate style'?"

Yes, you have to be in accurate. You have to be in aggressive stance to utilise the berserker class.

Wow. Fail. I just spend 60k tokens - got tier 8 berserker amongst other things - and now I can't even use it? I really wish you could 'unspend' tokens.

A 15-20% increase in strength or attack does not alone jusify losing the ability to hit weak points on all the monsters.

My thoughts exactly, so I'm little upset as well.

I was already disappointed that the first two classes were anti spear. I will be very disappointed if I wasted tokens to get berserker tier 5 and then can't even use it with my spear. Why can't Jagex not be difficult.... Just let us have a general accuracy bonus, a general defensive bonus, and a general strength bonus.

Now you actually have to choose between a weapon.. Not simply follow the crowd..

I'm all for a great range of equally strong weapons so we finally get to see some DIFFERENCES in set ups :).

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Yeah, I havn't seen any difference in my damage after upgrading my ring to berserker tier 5. Right now I'm rushing through the ice floors trying to get a hailstorm dagger.... Whats the best floors to do to get a flameburst defender? Also, which is going to be the best ring to use with that combo? Berserker or the Accuracy one?

You can poison a spear and it can hit most monsters weaknesses. Why limit yourself to specific attack styles when you can have a broad range? The poison damage also helps you out a lot. What other weapons, besides daggers, can be poisoned? There's a good reason why spears were the most popular.

That would be the Furnished floors, I believe. But really? You'd rather give up your defensive for whatever power the Flameburst and Hailstorm provide together? It's an average of an extra 20 damage per combat round...

Indeed I would. I've always played games in the role of offensive rather than defensive.

That's what I said! Even a J Mod stated you don't have to be on aggressive to use it! J Mod's and their wrong info -.-

Because often if you choose a "role" you get more variety in a game.

Ie someone plays a tank and takes the stufff for that.. Another person plays as DPS, another as nuke, and someone as support..

Would give much more tactic to dungeoneering and runescape as a whole

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
