As everyone knows, godswords are one of the best weapons in runescape, not only because of thier accuracy and strength bonus, but because of there special abilities. Whether it be freezing an opponent, lowering thier defence, adding to your maximum hit, or regenerating prayer and hitpoints, there is a wide variety of uses and scenarios in which they are favorable.

What other specials or abilities or changes in existing ones would be favorable in similar scenarios in there own unique way?

Ummm, what are you asking? What would make them better? Making them 1-handed and giving them a faster attack speed, and balance it by lowering their stats somewhat...oh wait...

You should be able to put godswords in your quiver and be able to shoot them with the handcannon, every shot, their special automatically activates.

Oh, you are insinuating chaotic weapons, aren't you ? :P

Now that was subtle.

In case you didn't notice, godswords fell horribly in price because Chaotic weaponry is way better.

Whip, CR, CLS; all of them are better in almost any situation because the faster attack speed means more dps and the use of the offhand slot gives even more bonuses. Really the only situation I can think of where gs are useful is pking with an ags as both the primary and spec weapon, but that's pretty limited.

Actually, Godswords can be useful to lower levels, as when your attacking stuff with high defense, the higher accuracy and strength bonus makes it more useful then a whip. But yeah, godswords really aren't that useful, and are definitely NOT the preferred weapon of choice for high levels.

Chaotics made Godswords obsolete sadly. Although I would buy up a BGS or two since they are fairly cheap atm, great spec weapon for Corp so I hear.

The chaotic maul is superior to godswords in comparison so for any serious players, the maul would be the best choice
for high hits which belonged to the godswords prior to dungeoneering.

Maul reins supreme at Saradomin, CLS at Bandos, Rapier at Daggonth Kings, and CCBow and Rapier/CLS at TDs. I really can't think of a place that godswords are needed anymore other than specing corp.

To be honest, everyone should buy a BGS.

Nex is going to be harder than Corp. That means there is a fair chance he will have MORE DEFENCE than corp, and maybe even a damage reducer for certain weaponry LIKE CORP, to render D Claws useless to prevent massing.

I don't understand WHY THEN that no one is buying up BGS's to use as a cheap non-degrading defence lowering spec wep to take on Nex.

BGS - Corp, poor man's godsword (newbs think it's good)
ZGS - no use anymore; price held up by Bandos to avoid becoming cheapest godsword; no supply but no demand
SGS - a slayer spec weapon, but not even that good so declining in use
AGS - Outdated KO weapon, claws ruined it. Used for +1 worlds because rushers don't want to lose anything

Isn't ZGS still useful at Zammy GW for the spec?

But frankly yeah, for high level players they're obsolete. Interesting idea about the new boss... however, I know with corp if you have more money to spend it's recommended that you use statius warhammer.

Incidentally, I think there's a small possibility that weapon and the other PVP weapons and armour will stop being degradeable. At least the armour; think about it, this new armour is supposed to surpass pretty much every other defensive item in the game, right? Including PVP. So, gear that degrades in an hour vs.... depends on the catch on the new boss armour tbh. Probably a catch of some sort, positive there'll be one for the bow.

Woops, sorry for the random tangent there. Yes, it is possible the BGS will rise in price due to the new boss, but I doubt it'll be effective. Maybe the boss will restore it's defense, in say switching from different modes if it has any, or maybe damaging it won't be much of an issue when your actually in a position to damage it; rather, the boss mechanics will play a larger defensive role.

I think you mean saradomin GW? And no, a high damaging spec is better...running away isn't that hard, it's not worth loosing that much damage for a few clicks saving spec.

The bgs special is relative to how much you hit. Most of the time, you won't be hitting at all. The 10% strength is hardly significant that it shouldn't even be
mentioned. The 100% reduction is a huge disadvantage for a special that relies entirely on luck. It's a very terrible weapon for pretty much anywhere and
serious corp'ers would want to use a Statius warhammer spec instead. I could see the bgs having some merit towards mid levels who are too lazy to
get 80 dungeoning and attack. Other then that, it's just a signature noob weapon that nobody really uses.

Yep bgs is most useful godsword (the only useful one)

And no, the swh isn't cost-effective for 4-6 man corp.

If there is a damage reducer like the corp (No non-spear weapons,) then all offensive specs fail. Then, really, the best thing to do would be to try and use a defence reducing spec, instead of just clawing and failing most of the time.

And also I never suggested to ONLY use the BGS. When you go to the corp, you spec with BGS then switch to a spear.

Plus, if every person who wants to do Nex wanted to get a SWH, then they would be unbuyable and have a street of like 50m.
