Just wondering, for ranging nex and arma, what would be better? Or are they roughly the same? Wondering if I should free up 50m to put into other supplies, as the tokens aren't a problem. I know spectral is around 5 or less better in all defensive categories, and has 3 prayer over the eek. Though the eek has +4 range attack, which isn't much but is it enough to make it a good alternative?

I think they're generally considered to be the same thing. If you can get one more easily than the other, use that.

But if I can get both just as easily, is there a clear favourite?

honestly no

At nex, the extra defense doesn't help much because she's too accurate anyways, some same goes for the extra +4 range, as you're range should already be spiked up anyways, and if you need the accuracy, you'd just use an Unholy book.

For Armadyl, it's mage isn't strong nor accurate enough for either the extra def from spectral, or the soak from EEKS to even matter
Kree's def also isn't really high enough to contemplate over +4 more range.

Personally, I got an EEKS, just because I like dunging enough that I had the tokens sitting around anyways.

I would say go for it if u dont have issues with the tokens, that 50m could be used to get 99 magic and supplies.

Alright, I guess eagle eye kite it is, I already have all the chaotics/rewards I want so it gives me something else to aim for as well.

You don't lose the price of the item when you buy it, so the only money you lose buying a spectral is the potential of which you can make while flipping that money, so if you don't flip or have 1b+, you lose nothing having a spectral, thus it's then a better option(you can't resell eeks for 200k tokens).

Spectral is probably better at Kree'arra due to the low prayer bonus of armadyl + fury & prayer being quite crucial there. Spectral is also better for Graardor and probably quite good for Kril as well.

I would agree with the bit on Kree and K'ril, although for Graardor wouldn't dragonfire shield be better than spectral? Or did you mean out of EEK and spectral?
