Okay, i'm a bit of a PVM noob, prefer skilling and just relaxing in the game, so never really been to GWD properly (saved for Aviansies, which got really boring quickly!)

So i was a bit surprised when my daily challenge was to go a kill a GWD boss. As i've never done this before, who would be best with my stats etc?

Att 71
Str 70
Def 79
Range 73
Mage 99 + Ancients
Pray 99 - No Curses.

I have access to Ovls/Extremes, and War Tort or Bunyip. In terms of gear, i have Bandos/Arma/Subj, can get Barrows if better.


So are there any bosses i could possibly solo? If so, what would be my best tactics?

Mage at bandos will be your best bet, since you don't have curses and a fairly low defense don't expect a trip too last long. Having said that I expect you would still be able to get several kills if you load your tort up rocktails while using ovls.

I've only used blood barrage at bandos since coming back which is quite useful since it will kill two of the minions at the same time allowing you to recoup your health, although I also had SS on.

Since you have 99 prayer I would highly suggest getting curse so that you may use Soul Split and Anguish, if you can do the quest. If not then you should do fine with a tort of the best healing food for you HP and the level 70 stats boost prayers on normal prayer book at Bandos (provided you did the quest and Knight Wave). I doubt it is Rocktails given your stats and I am not quite sure if it is Sharks either. But since you only need 1 kill for a challenge you should be fine with blood barrage. If you feel you need the extra LP or the DPS buy Ahrim's, but Subj robes should be fine. Wear at least a Bandos item at all times, until you get ready to fight General Graador himself (or take a dip in the Bandos Pool at Oo'glog for an hour of bandos protection). Unless your slayer level is higher enough, don't bother with the spiritual mages, ranger, or warrior. Focus on the goblins or other magic weak monsters there.

While fighting Graador use AOE abilities and your thresholds as much as possible. To aid you you can take 1 OVL, 1 Prayer Renewal, 1 Adrenaline, 1 or 2 Prayer potions, 1 emergency 1 click teleport, runes, and the rest food (all either pots or flask). if you plan to do more of a trip than just finishing the challenge then your inventory may need to be adjusted.

Get curses for sure. The quests are all very easy and they are extremely useful!

In the middle of getting curses, only got a few quests left to go.

Thanks for the advice guys, took down Graador 3 times before i bailed out. Happy with that for a first attempt, just need to get them curses and up my def/constitution levels, then crack on and try to get better at GWD.
