What form of combat does Zaros specialise in? Is this documented anywhere?

As the item could be; Zaros x-bow or something?

Also, it doesn't state there is a Zaros godsword, but I don't see why there wouldn't be.

But finally, if it took 4 full armies to beat this guy, it better not just take 4 Level 138's to beat him, it better take at least 15 people to beat him or they're not really sticking to their story, unless we (5th age) are actually almost an equivalent to god power of the 3rd age?

Wow, about time. When I suggested the God Wars dungeon back in Oct 2006, I originally said it should be five or more generals. Then again, I suggested it be in the wilderness with no limit PvP, which I'm glad they didn't do.

Looking forward to see how the mechanics of Life Point Boosting Armor works. Great way to balance the offensive side of things and reduce or remove the 1 hit chance.

Ummm....profitable SKILLING update pl0x?

Quite honestly, unless the boss turns out to be as easy as barrows I have nothing to look forward to this month. Jagex needs to acknowledge the existence of skillers and make a high level skilling update wth profits comparable to god wars. I mean, is 99 str/def/att really harder than 99 wc or farm or fishing or crafting...



TT rewards: 2 ranger boots, Zamorak page 1 (2x), Guthix page 1, Ancient page 2

You must construct additional oak larders doors... I mean pylons

Barrows: 10. Total value~22.3 mil. Ahrim Robeskirt is currently the item I have received the most.

There've been how many skilling updates since Corp came out? It's been a long time since we got a boss skillers aren't getting shafted.

Anyone wanna bet the new bow breaks after so many shots or something similar?

Put me down for $100. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Hmm, let me get this right, Nex isn't Zaros's right hand man, that's Azzandra (the guy who brought us Anicent Magicks) so that means Azzandra is way, way more stronger than we initially thought.

A brand new ’ammo-free’ bow, as fast and accurate as a chaotic crossbow and as powerful as dragonstone-tipped rune bolts. :ohnoes:

EDIT: 5 gp says it's gonna be 2handed; which means using it in High-Lvl safe PvP will coe at a risk (No shield)

The new bow for rangers sounds interesting, maybe the dps on the bow will finally make range slaying awesome. Though on the other hand its prbly going to cost a arm and a leg to get.

I hope they bring back the Hati wolf every January. Because if they don't, they've just wasted a bunch of development time on more one off content. As if the lame holiday events weren't bad enough.

The new boss sounds really exciting though. You notice how they plan to release that right after the quest that will give us a (better?) gravestone? We're going to need it until someone develops a foolproof method of taking him down.

I'm hoping this boss will be truly hard to take down - not like the other weak generals. I'd much rather have a combination of very difficult/uncommon drops than easy/rare as hell drops.

That x-bow will work in the same way that Crystal Bow does in my opinion; no ammo but limited usage.

What form of combat does Zaros specialise in? Is this documented anywhere?


Magic (Ancient Magic specifically)...

And yeah I agree that this new bow will break much like Chaotic crap does atm...

Anywho; 15 combat moves:
I'm thinking Poison, Disease or other stat draining thing, Melee, Range, Magic, Stomping if you run under him, something teleport-ish related (or knock-back), unequip your armor and such, Freezing you, Dragon-Breath-like thing, can heal itself + leuitenants, Turns off your prayer, Prays himself, drops mines out of his ass, summons critters to help him, and rots your food...

Oh and on top of that, most of these attacks will be multi-target attacks :D

From the sound of it, the new bow won't even be as good as hand cannon, so it might not be that great. The new armor will be interesting, but if it won't have great offensive stats(it may very well be great defensive/ life boosting) it will not be that great. Ofcource, as we will be getting a new boss, all this matters little. Sounds like a great month.

Is this jagex trolling or something:
zaros is supposed to specialize in magic combat..

However this boss again drops no magic equipment?

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.
