Godsword or whip at barrows?

Recommended Posts

Whip is definately much better for attacking the brothers (much faster attack, so higher DPS I think). I assume you're maging the 4 melee brothers and meleeing the other two? You could always swap the BGS out for the dds, but if you have a bad spec with bgs thats a waste. I would just say whip+defender+dds.

Why would you melee them all?

With high melees and a lower mage, meleeing all can be more effective.

 

OT: Whip, the speed advantage over the godsword is better than the small advantage of slightly higher hits.

Except he has 86 magic which is more than sufficient.

The reason why I melee them all, is because it's cheaper (saves runes), and it means my inventory is more spacious for more supplies.

 

At your levels, it'd actually be cheaper to use ice spells and a black salamander.

 

It's not how much money you save on supplies - it's how fast you can do chests in one trip. At your stats, melee will be slow and tedious. You should only melee with full void, chaotic rapier, overloads, and turmoil.

I've probably done 500+ chests with just melee, so I know what it's like. Melee is just less work, and I'm lazy to be honest.

Which is the only proper reason to melee barrows, after all, as it's slower than magic 99% of the time. Use a whip.

Whip will do more damage for you and spending 8 mil for an activity that doesn't pay very much isn't ideal tbh.

This. There's no reason to own a SGS and every reason to use d claws at barrows.

I thought he was being sarcastic... Are claws actually useful for barrows?

They're the best spec weapon for barrows. Use them on Ahrim and Karil with spec restores.
