Overload advice

Recommended Posts

Hi. I've finally got round to actually making overloads (well will do shortly care of a curry or two) but just wondered how extensively people use them. Any views on when they're worth using and when they're not? Thanks!

worth using for most slay tasks if you have alot of em, worth using for just about any bossing, and worth using before dungeons(if your on a good team)

I value the herblore exp a lot (just for a maxing out stance) so I tend to use them on most slayer tasks.

You never really use that much on slayer (maybe a few doses every task) and a majority of the time, you'll break even/make profit (including the costs of the overloads)

 

Obviously, use them for any type of bossing and for monsters where there's lots of competition or people trying to crash you.

 

Another good idea is to use it before a dungeon to speed up GD's/help open >99 str doors/get a little healing in 5 minutes.

Thank you both - never even thought about Totally genius idea. Anything where using them is a waste/bad idea? Any times they don't stack?

I don't use them on multicombat cannon tasks and low-def slayer enemies.

This is more or less relevant - the higher level boost translates to higher dps, but the attack level boost doesn't matter terribly much on low defence enemies and when cannoning maybe 30% of the total damage is your own, so the strength level boost isn't huge either.

 

Overloads are worth using anywhere you do not already have a good level boost, which means everywhere but While Guthix Sleeps and Ritual of the Mahjarrat with the Stone of Jas boost. If you are maging ice strykewyrms, you can use a wolpertinger and scroll every minute instead of overloading, which is cheaper (but requires more attention of course).

Use them everywhere, chances are you'll make far too many anyway.

Those with a little bit of knowledge are more dangerous than those with none.
