You really ought to be using barrage.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I would expect you to be fine. However, if you are not, some pointers just in case:
1) Try upgrading to Armadyl battlestaff, subjugation robetop/skirt/boots/gloves, Saradomin's Hiss and mage arena cape. That's just general gear upgrades.
2) As JC said, barrage. You can boost your magic level by 16, to 103, with overloads, so you should be fine using ice barrage.
3) If you get one more ranged level, you can bring a royal crossbow switch, which is a pretty good weapon on Ket-zeks (the old 360s) as they are arrow weak.

i used water surge to kill it and it was kinda easy,although i had more crit bonus and arma staff plus ganodermic.
try to leech its defence a bit,although if you pay attention it isnt that hard,take care of hte healers fast and watch the attack as you run for the safespot and you'll be fine.

You don't need barrage by any means. I got to Jad this week using the Polypore staff's spell and only used 8 sharks in the process. Having said that, barrage would make things soooooo easy and would be especially useful for reducing damage when being teamed by multiple melee guys. My setup was as below:
Ahrim's Hood
Ahrim's Body
Ahrim's Skirt
Ganodermic Boots
Ganodermic Gloves
Seers Ring
Polypore Staff
Amulet of Glory
Skillcape (fletch specifically since my mage cape looks awful with Ahrim's :P)
Blessed shield (switched to this to use rejuvenate to heal)
No aura as I can't afford any (vampirism would be ridiculously useful though)

I didn't use prayer until Jad so just took 2 prayer flasks. I also had 2 extreme magic + 2 extreme defence flasks that I kept forgetting to use. The rest of my inventory was runes for blood barrage (which I didn't use), my shield as mentioned and then sharks. My stats are in my signature (most notably 77 def and 99 mage).

(I still haven't beaten Jad yet though, need to working on my prayer switching whilst concentrating on other things...)

Prayer switching is something you should first do without anything else. That is, don't bother attacking Jad or using abilities at first, just switch until you are bored, that'll provide motivation to get on with it.

That's really good advice quyneax (as always from you :))

On my next run I am going to take extra prayer flasks so that I can do exactly that. Thanks!
