Chaotics?

Recommended Posts

I'm about to get 200k tokens and I was wondering if chaotics are any good anymore. If so, rapier or longsword? I heard it doesn't matter anymore, but I'm just making sure.

They're still quite decent from what I can tell.  Drygores/noxious scythe are the only things that really outclass them (as t90 of course), but they do require more money :P.

Claws are you best option. It only costs 200k tokens for the pair of them.

“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.”

Claws are considered the melee most worthwhile, they have a minute edge stats wise; plus the start out at full charge; but the 4 melee options don't have a lot between them.

 

With t80 weapons you can afford to ignore the smaller weakness (e.g. focus on melee or ranged or mage opposed to stab or slash or crush) so one set will suffice.

@Sy Minute edge? Did they actually change them, then? AFAIK, they removed the cit bonus when things changed to strength bonuses and never gave Claws or korasi's anything to compensate.

 

Claws are better if you ever intend to boss or upgrade to drygores. Spear and Maul also cost the same amount of tokens as well.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I would just be using it for slayer and quests since I'm not a big boss hunter.

You're 96 attack so chaotics aren't good. You're better off not getting chaotics and buying drygores instead. Put your dungeoneering tokens into the smaller items, like the scrolls, charming imp, etc. and then into dungeoneering xp when you run out of things to buy.

Unfortunately, I can't afford that right now. I've been using a whip for as long as I can remember so I figured this would be a nice improvement over a level 70 weapon.

Rule 1 of playing runescape if your not an efficiency obsessed metagame nutcase:

Get any useful upgrade you can, it'll make things run smoother and you can worry about getting the super duper pricey stuff later on.

If that is the case, then I would actually get Chaotic Xbow, because that, along with Dragonbane bolts, helps immensely with QBD, which, once you get used to it, allows you to get other higher end gear.

 

But getting more than 1 Chaotic probably isn't worth the tokens, but if I had to buy a chaotic, it'd be Xbow.

Not to hi-jack the thread, but I have a similar general question to this so I thought i'd add my thoughts. I'm slowly getting closer to 200k tokens too, so am considering which to buy also.

 

I doubt i'll get a melee item as I haven't used melee properly in about 3-4 years and also still have a whip.. 

 

Is there much difference between Royal Crossbow and chaotic crossbows? Both are t80.. and RCB is cheap.

I was planning on getting the staff out of the 3 options, simply because I don't know of another t80 staff?

 

I have 99 in both mage and range and really don't care about exp. And I don't have much money as I probably play 5-10 hours a month, so my thinking was RCB for range, staff for mage as all I ever seem to do when I play is a couple hours of PVM here and there.

 

It's unlikely i'm ever going to get more than one chaotic, I hate dungeoneering :)

Because MH Xbow is only weapon that has a tangible use that isn't out classed by something that exist in the game elsewhere: doing QBD.

 

Chaotic Xbow MH functions pretty much identically to Asc xbow when you use Dragonbane bolts with it. Your off hand should ideally be Death Lotus darts in that case.

 

However this is the only case where Chaotic Weapon is a joint BIS. Every other chaotic weapon has something else that beats them in every other way.
