Fairly straight forward question.

I enjoy slayer, and I enjoy metal dragons cause they are fairly relaxed mage xp.
I got claws of guthix from the mage arena, and I can also cast water surge.

When mageing I always pray mage as well. SO which is more efficient in terms of killing speed, mage xp and cost?

Also bonus question - if it is claws of guthix, how often should I recharge?

Claws of guthix with the mace is = to fire surge with the SoL. So then CoG with the mace would be better then water sure with the SoL. As for the charge I think you just charge as often as possible.

PM me in game anytime

It's a reward from pest control/conquest. It gives 10% more magic damage over the regular Guthix staff. 150 tokens I think?

It's 250, but it doesn't take that long if you're good at conquest.

Use flames of zamorak, it lowers the dragons magic level. Unless your leeching, accuracy should be your main concern when maging metal dragons. And don't pray mage, use antifire potions and an antidragon shield.

CoG lowers the dragons defense level, and is more worth it. Also the to get the staff a good PC clan is faster points than conquest.

Magic level=Magic defence

70% of it in fact.

And seeing as dragons don't have a high magic level but do have a high defense level CoG is better. That and the fact that the max hit is greater.
