Nex armor or Port Armor for soloing GWD Bosses?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on soloing some GWD bosses (specifically Arma and Bandos). So my question is whether there is a big difference between Torva Vs Tetsu and Pernix Vs Death Lotus. If you can comment on Sea Singer robes that would be helpful too. Thanks :)

Always use Nex equipment. Faster kills, less runes used per kill :).

This. The only time I ever heard of any cause to use defensive armour over nex/gwd is being the tank of Nex and for KK. Even then I suspect someone good at it could probably do it with nex gear (especially for nex).

Doing it in nex gear is a complete [bleep].

Just went to Arma for the first time (solo).

I wore an arma top and dl legs.

Had to tele out after the 3rd kill. Only brought 5 rocktail soups.

I'll try again in full dl next time.

Might not have all the mechanics down - Im pretty noob at bossing.

You have to use a lot of AoE attacks (for extra healing with SS) and stand in one of the corners so that the knockback doesn't interrupt your rapid fires (and also to cluster Kree and the minis a bit so you can bombard them).

I personally stand in the NW corner. You will get the mage minion in AoE of Kree and Kree has to move to be able to attack you when he spawns so you can open with the DoT that triples damage if the target moves about 90% of the time.

My understanding with kree is that it is more effective to pray range than to soulsplit, but I'm not sure at this point. Also, cruelty scrimshaw
