But having to do hard wave atleast once = Wait a month for your cape.


not really, you can do it immediatly after, you just don't get exp reward

You get a new music track for doing it, and you need every track unlocked for the completionist cape. Jagex just missed it.

Did the easy wave since I couldn't do the hard one the first time.
Got 101'144 Dungeoneering EXP (Level 113).

Did both modes (no reward for the 7-wave hard mode until next month) I pray switched on cliff alll the way same method as Jad but I hear you can no pray him and he doesn't hit so.

Easy D&D.



Yeah cliff is rather easy.

He has a ranged attack (throwing 3 rocks); but it matches the ranger trolls big rock throw so dodge the rocks = no damage and if your in melee range they land in a triangle around you without hitting.
His mage attack that actually does damage seems very rare, he only used it on me once where he double stunned me so I was out of melee range for agggggggeeees and I had mage prayer on anyway.
His melee attack is shcokingly inaccurate, took maybe 400 damage for the whole fight from it and I'm hardly a pro combat person (torags and whip with dfs and netiz)

I'm very mildly cheesed off that the server reboot countdown started shortly after I started trying it out, and kicked me out at wave 16. Oh well, still got 39k prayer experience. It's all nearly free xp anyway.

Easy was a joke :P only used 2 doses of ext atk/str, brought 4 sup rests and 18 brews, didn't use any of them, only used like 15 uni scrolls and 1 eee spec. Never used the supply table either, didn't realize it was there till after i was done, rofl.

Hopefully next month will be harder :)

Just did the 7 hard waves. Really easy. I could probably do it without using food or prayer potions for the most part, thanks to that supply table that allows you to fully heal a few times per wave. It was quite fun, though. Certainly looking forward to doing this again for more rewards next month!

Seems his ranged attack is more "dangerous" in ahrd as the 3 rocks bounce in to the centre (eg where u were when he fired) opposed to just landing in the triangle as they do on easy

Jagex, if you're going to have more custom interfaces, please think about them, reuse them, and make some standards instead of making them from scratch each time. It saves development time and lets you get on with putting out bigger, better, and smoother updates. This is becoming a pattern and a problem.

That little screen that gives you 'information' on trolls you select doesn't give you anything that their appearance, name, examine info and what you're told by the Captain doesn't give you already, so it was useless. Everyone knows what wizards, rangers, summoners, warriors and troll generals are, Dynamite, the Troll Father, and Poorly Cooked Karambwan are all thankfully obvious, and Cliff is a boss you're supposed to figure out (answer: think Jad). Jagex really should trust in their talented model designers more.

The wave counter could have been a reskin of the Fight Caves one, but in troll grey. In fact, make it the standard for 'wave counters'.

This was a solid update, but I can't help but get annoyed when other updates this month have suffered due to inefficient use of development time.

I did the "repair the castle" version of the game instead.

Killed 750 trolls, put my reward into a lvl97 skill and got 37,260xp for it. Not bad for 10 minutes work, though not as lucrative as the circus.

I messed up, started the repair thing instead of the fight thing and quit. I'm annoyed I lost that xp but I guess more people did so I'll just pretend I got kicked out on a server restart and try again next month. I got 507 rc xp for not doing anything for 30 seconds, by the way.

First did the 20 wave fight up to wave 19 then had dinner, then did the 7 wave hard after which was faster and just as hard really. With the supply table you have 10 claw specs per wave and they all have really low health and defence. Iron titan chewed them all up, even on Cliff.

In short, really boring D&D I'll be doing for xp only.

Unlike other exp rewarding things you get, these reward books can be banked:

Start saving up for a few years, then have one day of tons of exp?


Edit: Btw, completed all 20 waves, got 55904 exp for a level 84 skill (which leveled me up to 85 (yay agility)).
99 HP, Attack, Strength, Defence, Summoning, Ranged, Herblore, Prayer, Agility, Magic, Slayer, Fletching, Fishing, Woodcutting, Mining, and Thieving.

Jagex'd out of my untrimmed hp cape on 6/14/2011.

If claws looked like this, I would wear them a hell of a lot more often. Please change them jagex, please. If you throw in a pair of duel-wielded nunchuks for £2 on my credit card...no way I won't buy.

I'm not an efficienado.
