the bonuses are in the rs manual, not one beats zammy in any way.

DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.

It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).

Doesn't look particularly great. The Zamorak book still has the highest offense, and the defense of them is...not very high :P

 

Still, I intend to fill them all up. Eventually, once the prices crash - a day after they come out is NOT the time to buy them....

 

Might use the ancient book for maging though - just 'cause of it's color. Maybe :P

my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

The problem is pretty simple... If i want defense in my SHIELD slot. I'll use a SHIELD. If i want offense I might use zammy. The only other use for any of the others is prayer. But 99% of the time if I'm using prayer i need no defense so attack is what I want...

agreed. i was expecting these books to stand out in some way. bandos could have had atleast a small str bonus, and arma is a missed chance to give a good range boosting shield. none of them beat zammy book, and sara book is still a good magic def shield on the cheap. does well on magic based melee such as bloodvelds too.

There's so much ranting going on about the stats of those books so I wouldn't be surprised if they'll tweak the stats a little :wink:

 

I've actually kind of thought that aswell to be honest :/

Let's hope they do...

This.

 

The bonuses on the new books don't make much sense, when you compare them to an unholy book. They're basically just guthix books, with stats slightly tweaked towards each gods theme. The arma/ancient books should have higher range/magic bonuses then an unholy book, and the bandos one should include strength.

 

I actually think it's pretty likely they'll be changed.

The bandos book in particular is outclassed in every single way (but prayer) by the rune defender, in a way that leaves gods to shame. Armadyl and Zaros could up their respective "standout" stats to +12 and bandos shoud be given +8 str bonus.

 

Otherwise i don't see much change for rescue for these items.

+8 Str? I doubt it. Thats more Str then the DFS, and more then bcp+tassies.

Think it'd be kinda nice if they were given more useful stats. Still, I intend to collect them all sooner or later, regardless of stats. Wonder if Jagex will change the stats though?

That would give the book some usefullness. That and +8 isn't really that much when you see the difference. It's only a +2 witha possibility of a +3

8 strength is not overdoing it for a bandos book. DFS provides significant defence, and that's really the only reason to use one, people really overvalue the strength.

 

A rune defender meanwhile would still retain incredible attack bonuses.

 

Edit: too slow!

IMO, +10 to ranged attack and defense for law book, +10 to magic attack and defense for ancient book, and +10 to all melees and +2 strength for bandos book would be good. Unholy book would still be useful for using multiple combat styles, and the new books would have niche uses. We need a non-chaotic, ranged-specific shield, and the book of law should've been it.

still too little for bandos book, paying 3m for a mith defender :[ maybe like +7 str and +6 accuracy, still not better than rune defender but good enough for people debate about it and buy anyway
