You can use gear like:

 

Verac's helmet (full slayer helmet if on task)

Fury/arcstream switch

Bandos chestplate

Tassets

Infinity boots

Barrows gloves

Imbued dstone or imbued onyx or wealth

Soul wars cape

Staff of light/chaotic rapier switch

Arcane spirit shield or dragonfire shield or blessed spirit shield

 

Then have a dwarf cannon in your inventory, superantipoison, overloads, a few brews & super prays/restores (more brew & restore in yak), yak scrolls, sol + arcstream switch, either ice barrage or fire surge runes, hometab or similar (can use ROW tele but it's not as good as safety).

 

You go in, pray mage with fury/rapier equipped, kill Supreme iirc, then set up the cannon.

 

Freeze Rex with ice barrage to avoid having to safespot, though fire surge works well too (depends on what you like really).

 

Prime will be killed by the cannon (it's a 3x3 monster so if it spawns right on the cannon you get very quick kills). You'll be hybdriding Supreme and Rex while the cannon does its job. Keep your ranged defence over 350.

 

Since you can't soul split you'll need a brew:restore ratio of about 1:1.

 

I'm afraid that's all I know here :???:. Not even sure on the kill order.

You should also use dclaws for specials to down supreme faster or eee special to time your overloads.

 

There is also a problem with killing them TOO FAST and messing up the timing but that all depends on your ability as well as the world population for spawn times. I'm not sure how much of an issue that is though...

Replace chaotic kiteshield with dfs, chaotic staff with sol, ccbow with rune crossbow.

Put 1 superantipoison++ in the yak in place of a super restore 2nd row, and take 1 extra super prayer in inventory. Can do the same with the yak pouch.

Replace runes with fire surge runes, taking out rune thrownaxes.

Yak should have first 3 items as brews, but same amount of potions overall.

 

This setup works very nicely at your stats, once you get turm you can stay about 7 overloads instead. D claws are only at option once you have soulsplit.

 

You enter, kill supreme with chaotic rapier + piety + overloads, then setup cannon at prime's respawn point and loot, then go safespot mage rex, then back to meleeing supreme and let your cannon kill prime. If prime has wandered far from it's spawn point you may want to range it to death with eagle eye + rune crossbow or setup your cannon to where it has wandered temporarily.

You can time prime's death to let you range pray on supreme if you wish, but you don't have to always, especially after getting food drops.

Get turmoil asap though, even if you have to welfare a bit, since soulsplit helps a huge amount at dag kings, easily healing back up each rex kill since prime is usually killed by the cannon after each supreme kill.

Wear high range defense armour. Pray mage.

Kill supreme, lure rex, kill rex, kill supreme.

Cannon is optional for killing prime.

Same gear for solo tribriding, except get fremy elite. That gives you noted dag bones. Meaning you can use yak for more potions or a uni for more healing

You're wasting inventory space by collecting noted bones and hides when the yak already has banking scrolls.

If you kill them faster then your special recovers, then you are either going to have a backup of bones, or are not going to bank all bones.

Noted bones + 5% damage + healing from uni > more inv space from yak + limited bone banking

Considering the banking time at dks & the value of hides I'd say yak > unicorn no matter what, but I agree that considering the amount of items dropped at dks (over 150/hr) means you'd rather note the bones.

Noted bones + 5% damage + healing from uni > more inv space from yak + limited bone banking

Once you have maxed gear and levels you really do not need the healing from uni, assuming you cannon prime, which you should because it means more profit/h and saves a lot of supplies.

Yak on it's own cannot bank all bones + hides, so yes, fremmy boots are obviously worth it. It has some steep requirements though. I usually get all bones and about 70% of hides (at the end of the trip my yak has 30 hides in it which helps).

The only reason to bring uni is for after yak supplies run out. But that means your inventory will be very strained with overloads etc.

And would not let you survive much longer, but you may wish to try it out.

 

I have no idea why you think you shouldn't use yak.

Couple questions,

 

Is arcane stream worth it? How much of a benefit would it give? (Im only using Earth Surge btw. No one noticed I dont have 94/95 mage lol)

 

Can anyone link me to a video/pic? Need a location for the cannon.

 

 

No where close to getting Fremmy elite diary btw

Arcane stream is most certainly worth it at 30k tokens. Set up your cannon directly under where prime spawns.

If you're solo cannoning, you should use ice barrage

 

Don't put the cannon RIGHT on prime's spot, put it roughly 1 diagonal space north east of it. That way, you'll still hit him three times per shot, and if for some reason supreme is out while prime and rex are out, your cannon won't shoot supreme as prime is in the way. Cannons don't shoot through npcs.

 

But on second thought, if you use fremy boots for noted bones and a yak to bank hides, then yes it would be much better then no yak. I said that under the impression of NOT banking the hides

I did notice you are 94/95 mage, but overload boosts your magic to 101/94 mage, however, that means you cannot brew during rex, which is generally not needed, but can be a little annoying occasionally. 94 is close to 95 anyway, so you shouldn't have to deal with it too long. Yes arcane stream is worth it. You could bring earth runes too if you can't make it work.

 

@ Wkw, do not use ice barrage for efficiency. You may use it to make dag kings easier at first, but it is about -700k gp/h or something, which is not needed.

About the cannon spawn point - it depends on what you want your cannon to hit. I set my cannon up W / N W / S W of prime's spawn point. This way it shoots at prime within a couple cannonballs and hits supreme to speed up his death. My cannon is never loaded when finishing off rex anyway. If ice barraging you probably want to do the opposite, and kill prime while killing rex so you can range pray during supreme. However, ice barrage is still too expensive to be worth it.
