Drygores - worth it?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm sure this topic has been brought up before, but was just wondering I'll ask it in a context to how I play runescape.

 

So currently, dual drygore maces have come down far enough in price for me to afford it.

 

I mainly use melee for casual slaying, I'm in no rush really and not obsessed about efficiency. I will occasionally do PVM. I have bones banked for 92 pray. Have 96 summ and 99 herb, 91 in melee skills.

 

I currently have chaotic claws and full bandos. Is it financially worth getting the maces, or should I spend my money elsewhere? E.g saving for 95 pray. I have other tier 80 weapons in the other classes, should I save for nex equip? The only other thing I can think of upgrading is wand of treachery to abyssal wand + orb. 

 

Thanks

With t85 or t80 weapons you might still need some food and would notice a dip in dps using the wrong class (eg meleeing and mage weak monster)

 

With T90 you decimate pretty much everything so fast food will be a non-issue regardless of their weakness (obv a couple of exceptions like ascensions and ganos)

 

I wouldn't bother with Nex sets for slayer either, the GWD sets are more than enough to decimate monsters and they reduce your costs due to no degrade.

Someone did the math a while back, I want to say I remember it being ~12.5% better on anything where your accuracy is the same as with chaotics, and better still on anything that the extra accuracy is needed. Seeing as melee are your lowest combat stats I would say get the drygores and go do some pvm for more cash for 95 prayer.

Let's consider chaotic & drygore rapiers.

 

Accuracy

Make sure to wear melee body + melee legs. Only these items affect accuracy!

 

 

100% accuracy for chaotics is when your enemy got <161 cmb (class ranged)

100% for drygores raise the enemy's combat to <173  (class ranged)

 

And when we fight against the 198 cmb, there's 75% hit chance for drygores and 64% for rapiers. So in overall when you fight bosses (let's say they are 198 cmb) then drygores are better in accuracy by 17%.

 

Damage

Drygore: 

Damage 1102
Accuracy 2458

 

Chaotic:

 

Damage 980
Accuracy 1924

 

Let's say, we got:

99 str,

overloads,

no prayers,

full torva armour,

chaotic rapiers, drygore rapiers. (doesn't matter,can be longs too)

 

 

After some math it looks like this:

warrior ability damage for chaotics is: 

1.5*116+980*0.7875+490*0.7875+81.4 = 174+771.75+385.875+81.4 = 1413,025

 

and for drygore rapiers:

1.5*116+1102*0.7875+551*0.7875+81.4 = 1557,1375

 

Difference between them is 10.2% in dps

 

 

 

So, in overall, when we consider fighting bosses (198cmb), our accuracy raises from 64% (chaotic) to 75% (drygore), and damage raises by 10.2%.

 

It means, that drygores are better. From 10.2% (161cmb and less) to 29.2% (198cmb)

Thank you :) I'll keep this in my back pocket next time the question comes up.
