Good guide, but shouldn't you include Enhanced Excalibur? :D

Good guide, but shouldn't you include Enhanced Excalibur? :D




There's been a ton of new items released since I last updated the guide, but people have been doing a good job of using their own judgment when it comes to those things, w/o my consultation. For things like the Fally shield 3 and the enhanced excalibur, I usually just think that if people have enough experience to have obtained those items, chances are they've already got good enough stats and/or equipment to get to Jad w/o too much trouble. Also the new items make it easier and easier to get to Jad - most people make it to Jad on their first try. As long as they do that, they don't need to reconfigure their setups... Rather, they usually just need to practice controlling their nerves and mastering prayer-switching.

I'd also bring Enchanted Excalibur: transforms spec into hp and def boost.

Just a tip that I noticed today when I got my fire cape.... I have 50 defence and so the level 90's tend to hit me quite often. In the later waves, I began to run a bit low on saradomin brews. I found that if you press the logout button and finish the wave , nothing will spawn until you logout. If you are running low on brews/food you can use the rest function and rapid restore(to save time if you can spare the prayer points) to replenish your hp all the way back up, leaving you more prepared for the next wave. It will take longer, but if you have made it into the 50's wavewise, it can really be worth it! :thumbsup:



Great guide btw! Helped me tremendously when getting a firecape on my main account! :D

Well, I had an attempt today. I was doing extremely well until I accidentally got my hp to 10 against a Ket-Zek. I tried to get it behind a wall to "rest" for 30 min to regain my hp, but he had too long of a range for me to do it. He just shot me across the whole cave and didn't walk to me. Is there a way to do what I am talking about?

There is a way to block him from ranging you, but you'll have to put a big rock in between you 2. Once he's blocked, you can turn off pray and rest, but don't forget to put it back on, once you come out of your safespot.

I just tried Caves with your guide. The potions were perfect, and I had 7 s restores + 2 brews left when I got to him. But jad's mage attack got me before i even got to the healers. :wall: :wall: :wall: I'll try again when I have the time.

Hey, great guide but you reccomend a dfs or granite/obby shield if I have 85+ defense, and prayer book if I have 52+ prayer. What If I have both lol? (I have 85 defense and 72 prayer)

I have a question about a long time quest idem that saves usage on prayer points, and also restores more points with pray pots then restores do...



-The Holy Wrench



Do you recommend this idem, and what idem would you advise to substitute for this idem? for both methods, Guthans and Ranger??



I have spent countless mills on this damn thing last year, before giving up. i always seemed to mess up a combination of supplies and die @ the (get this) wave before jad (the 2 360's) :evil:



well i have come a ways since last fall, so any advise for me for this last time, would be much appriciated, as I'm getting older, and might just quit once and for all, but this cape has always been a goal for me...



Sincerely,

The Holy Wrench isn't worth it, unless you are sure you can manage which much less prayer (good at safespotting). If you are, replace a pot with a wrench. If you still have pots left, swap the sup restores for prayer pots (they're a little cheaper).



Also, how do you die at the 360s? Don't you pray? And if you run out of pots too soon, try to safespot some more, especially against the 180s.





Finally, I just wanna add that going to Tormented Demons is a good way of training prayer switching. It forces you to keep a constant eye at their attacks and even their pray. They are harder than Jad, but without the 62 waves.

One more reason to finish my last 40 qp's for wgs lol



I didn't die on accident from them, i drank my last sup restore and knew i was done for before i even died... (jad was coming next round, and time is money, so wasn't worth it imo 30 p points left and jad to go.) just bad luck i guess..



oo and this was with the pure range method, looking @ my stats, do you think guth/with either karils or crystal bow Hybrid would be better for me then if i was to range?



Thanx,

ohrty

My first 4 attempts today:

#1 - Lost Connection (not my internet, my brother continued to play fine, so it must have been server lag) around Wave 25

#2 - Lost Connection again, Wave 35 ~

#3 Got to jad for my first time ever. Stuffed up prayer switch.

#4 Repeat. He did range attack, i was already on ranged, i clicked ranged protection and i got smacked for 93. :(

I'll try again after I get some sleeps.

I've heard from a few people that you could use rune throwing axe's special to simultaneously hit all healers and get them on you. It seems like this would save a lot a trouble, has anyone tried this or recommend it? (Sorry if its been brought up already)

I just did my first fire cape attempt earlier today and i nailed jad! Luck was on my side because he spawned nicely and the healers were stuck, i'm still shakin from the battle though. :D Great guide! I will make sure to recommend it to anyone trying for fire cape.

(And btw, the trick where u always switch to mage pray after every attack worked great, it lets you focus on just watchin jad if you aren't good with the sounds) Gl!
