Training melee skills 82-86

Recommended Posts

I have been planning on training all of my melee combat skills (Attack, Strength, Defense, Constitution) to 86 in order to use the new combat abilities made available after The World Wakes Quest. The last time I trained combat, it was all of those skills from 78-82, and I did it at fire giants. It went pretty fast, and I thought that was probably the best way to go. I just had a couple of questions though:

 

Armor

I'm pretty broke, and can't really afford incredible armor. I've got pretty much a 1m budget for armor. I was wondering if I would be fine in my penance armor, or something like dragon platelegs (I already have those) and some cheap top.

 

Monsters

Are Fire Giants my best bet? Like I said, I don't have a huge budget, so I don't want to be training against anything that takes a whole ton of food. Ideally, I want to take little to no damage, with Vampyrism active.

 

Order

Out of those skills, is there a particular order I should train them in? Obviously Constitution will be trained as I train the other skills. I was thinking I would start with Strength, then Attack, then Defense, but I don't know. Is there a particular order that is best?

 

Weapon

The ideal weapon of choice is, of course, determined by what monsters I end up fighting. I just remember that while I was training on fire giants, the other people in the room had very diverse opinions in what was best. Some said a quick weapon witha shield or defenders, while others said it was by far best to use heavy, 2-handed weapons. Just wondering which is best for whichever you guys suggest.

 

Thanks in advance!

This intrigues me. When was the last time you trained combat? There are a few phases:

1) Pre-EoC: Fast weapon, defender, max strength bonus.

2) Early EoC, pre-dw update: Highest level two-handed weapon.

3) Current EoC, post-dw update: Highest level dual wield weapon, ee off-hand.

 

So yeah, use the current best, which is main hand chaotic claw (requires dragon claw and 100k tokens) with enhanced Excalibur as off-hand weapon. Void armour is fine. As always, super potions, boosting prayers etc. are very good.

 

I don't know about fire giants for good xp, currently AoE attacks have advantages, so you'll want to fight stuff that's agressive and tightly packed. Familiars are sadly not very useful at the moment.

for pure melee xp/hr orks in GWD are a good option (upwards of 450k/hr with maxed stats+drygores). AoE effects are very good there, so bring a 2h to take advantage of it's AoE attacks as well as DWs

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).

Is there a particular spot for killing the Orks?

I haven't done much extensive testing, I was just south (? straight away from it in the main section) of the door to the bandos area, but their might be a better spot.
