SGS used to be quite nice for slayer. I have used it extensively in the past. But Soul split made it all pointless. That includes EE.

Better to use the spec on claws.

I'd rather get the guaranteed 200-400 lps that the EEE heals (not to mention the nice def bonus) rather then to rely on the SGSs blind luck to get some extra lp
and prayer points you don't really need. :thumbup:

That's why I dubbed the godswords "junk". The specials just focuses too much on how well you hit and it doesn't compromise any sort of extra accuracy to
make the special bar worth it. I went off well enough with 10 duel arena matches with just a BGS spec without any decent hits. Instead, I could
of used something like the EEE spec where I get some extra def boost and the 10 sec healing, not to mention that the korasi sword also
gives a guaranteed hit when using the special. With a dds P++, Using 4 specs would at least poison the opponent and maybe get a few hits in.
Theres just so many other alternatives that work just as well or even better than godswords in most scenarios.

I thought all GS specs gave an attack and strength bonus for that hit?

all of what you said is true according to the kb

however empirically it has been shown that all the godsword specials do increase damage.

I have never used the EEE. I don't even have one.

For most slayer tasks you don't even need a bunyip. It's just convenience. I sometimes forget a bunyip pouch, like for abby demons, and don't go back to get one. Because they hardly ever hit. I once had to finish 60 for a task and didn't even use SS. Just used the lobbies they drop for the meager damage they hand out.


EEE is a huge waste of spec in most cases. Defense is not needed because I have a big stash of extremes. It's not as if I can sell extreme defense pots.

So i just fill up with special restores and claw my way throw a slayer task.

healing is so 2010.

I think the trend of the godsword prices says enough. I was pretty amused seeing a BGS is a measly 13m, ZGS 16, SGS 34 and AGS 55. The GS times are over, chaotic is in the house. GS's are so 2009

I don't bosshunt. My current stack of overloads is large enough. Too large in fact.

Use them for slayer. :)


As for the whole gs debate...I think they're useless. When I was 80 combat stats I laughed at people using them (especially to train...they'd say they're training str, but if thats the case get a ss), and now that I'm 99's I laugh even more.
And reading the "gs's are better at bandos for lower levels" argument...really? If your lower leveled you shouldn't even be considering bandos. Paying 55M (might as well get ags for the spec) to fight a boss where you'll be crashed all the time and hardly get any kills is not a good allocation of your resources/time.
