I can't solo at the moment because I don't have decent gear.

But if I did it would be Bandos because it's the easiest, and considering I haven't solo'd much before, I'd be able to for a lot longer without dying.

I know you say not to post Nex since it has the best loot, but honestly I'd no life it simply because Nex is the most interesting and challenging boss. Most of RS bosses are activate prayer, click attack, wait, eat if low health, etc. Nex is more complex and therefore enjoyable and satisfying to kill. Loots are also good.

Yeah but you truly can't no life Nex. You can do it majority of the day if you find a good team but you can't just sit in the layer rebank and go solo it 50-100 times a day. I agree nex is the most fun to fight and rewarding but its not no life-able persay lol

Ah, okay in that more realistic sense, I'd say TDs. Not a lot of cost for gear, decent drops, not as grindy, + effigies.

If I can also ask for a permanent Dagannoth task as well, even better :thumbsup:

Please define no-lifing then. Obviously you can't maintain constant killing of any boss, but you have drawn an (in my opinion,) arbitrary distinction here. Am I not aloud to say tormented demons simply because it takes a few minutes to run back to them? And bandos has an associated kill count, you wouldn't be killing him during that.

You took my response on a word for word basis instead of interpreting it with a little bit of common sense. My definition of no lifing: Being able to do continuous runs without having to stop to find teams or groups.
The whole point of this question was based on which boss would you no life SOLOING. As far as I am aware - Nex can't be solo'd with the current gear in game. Getting kill counts and banking is part of any bossing, so obviously that would not exclude TD's from the options. Please do not try to come up with witty remarks in responses to this as it will only be interpreted as another person lacking attention.

So yeah... my answer would be Nex.

However... apparently no-lifing has been re-defined to mean something that can be done solo (??), then probably dagannoth kings because there are many different ways to kill them and it might keep me more entertained.
Alternately, I think it would be fun to get better at soloing corp - people can do it very easily now, but I've only done it once.

I don't see what soloing has to do with it. Fighting Nex all day every day is still no lifing. Finding teams is also a part of every boss, it's just that most don't require teams.

Although if soloing is the only option my pick would be tds, even though they're [cabbage] money now and I've killed so many of them already, I can't stand even stepping into any godwars dungeon boss room besides Nex.

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

Corp. I've never been there, but it looks like fun.

However, I have actually no lifed at Armadyl (I consider doing 6-8 solo trips a day, that all lasted an hour to an hour and a half each, for about a week straight to be no lifing) and I ended up making like 80M that week.
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.

The only reason why I excluded Nex was for the obvious reason. Majority of players would automatically say nex every time but I wanted diversity in the responses so that was my reasoning of excluding Nex from a response :)

I'm sorry that my tersely worded post could have seemed like an attack, but there is no need to insult me. I was not trying to be witty, and I was not attempting to belittle you (I assume what I interpret to be hostility in your post was in response to what you assumed to be hostility on my part). My post was in fact genuine, I wanted to know your reason for classing Nex differently than other bosses.


Edit: wording seemed accusatory

Barrows. I think of them as boss monsters when appropriated to my level, in the same way that TDs are for some people. Of course, I'd need to get a few extra levels before then.

I'm not an efficienado.
