Elysian

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted an Elsyian Sprit Shield and after staking for a little bit I was able to afford one. I'm just curious what the best places to use it at are. I'm maxed combat, 99 summon, 99 prayer, 99 range, and 99 mage. I have a Chaotic Rapier, Fury, Zerker (i), full armadyl, and the money to buy bcp and tassets if I sell the armadyl gear.


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.

Ummm...

 

Nex.

Arma.

Corp. (If you solo, goliath first 1/3rd of kill)

 

That's pretty much it, you really want a d defender or arcane or deflector for almost anything else.

Works well at all GWD and Nex.

Better off selling it for a pbody and Nexing with an eeks, though it works with full armadyl, you'll just get forced into tanking. :(

Or you could just stake it and buy full pernix

It's 'decent' anywhere and 'optimal' nowhere (maybe dks).

You could use it in Castle Wars to help you tank. And Jad/Nomad/other one-off boss fights. Might be good in Fight Kiln too, I dunno. Also, I guess it's one of the best shields for when you need a shield to use your special shield abilities.

 

Of course, anywhere Elysian is good, Divine is probably just better. Especially since you can use Penance to offset the prayer drain.

Offensive bonuses generally trump it. Only place where you really need help with tanking is Nex.

When I had an elysian and divine for a while (around a year ago) I didn't find either of them very useful. I tried both at most bosses (gwd, nex, even tds) but it didn't help much. I didn't even notice the damage reductions. Not to trash the shields, they're good, just not very useful.


Come support my max total goal here.

 

Briobe122's 10-step guide to staking:

1. Get cleaned

2. Vow to never stake ever again! (very important)

3. welfare tds and get claws

4. kill glacors til i get boots

5. bandos ffa or more tds til i have around 50m

6. realize that it is far too hard to rebuild using steps 3, 4, and 5

7. give up the vow to never stake again

8. go back staking and make your bank back

9. if you failed at step #8, Go back to step #1

10. if you succeed at step #8, you will eventually feel the need to make money for rich people stuff, have a bad day of staking, then get cleaned anyways

Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

because you "not noticing" is significant :rolleyes:

 

DKs is the only place I can think of where its the 'best' (although elysian vs. arcane might be debatable)

 

everywhere else it's basically just a worse divine or is beaten by defender/deflector.


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
...
It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).
