Gonna attempt fight caves with 72 range, 43 prayer, and 70 def. Gonna equip black d'hide body, chaps, verac helm, snakeskin boots, glory, accumulator, rune xbow/shield with diamond bolts (e).
Is this setup going to work? Should I try broad bolts instead of diamond (e)? And perhaps should I use dragon boots instead of snakeskin?


use plain runite instead of diamond (e). never use dragon boots in the fight caves, they lower your ranged att. it'll be difficult with a prayer level that low, you'll probably run out of prayer potions :\


I'd like to mention how awesome it is that muggiwhplar is still responding to posts after four years.

:/ died within like 10 seconds of fighting Jad just now, didn't even hit him wtf. Last time I tried for a fire cape was 5 years ago and now I remember why...
I switched to the correct prayers but he still hit me, maybe switching in time is the problem?
Also, I just realized I miscounted and took too many super restores. I had 10 left over and had 0 brews when I got to Jad.


Anyways, this is an awesome guide, one of the best I've read so far. Goes into great detail and describes each strategy. The only thing is that some of the images don't show up.

Thanks so much!
200.

If I can deflect ranged and magic with ancient curses, would you recommend using the ancient curses spellbook?

I think it may be a bad idea for prayer being drained faster (higher level), but I do not know how fast prayer is drained when using ancient curses.

Thanks.

I just did the Caves and died after getting Jad down by about 1/3 of his health. I had plenty of potions left.

Things to note:

  • I used Enhanced Excalibur for healing and defense raising; it was very useful for saving brews and not lowering stats.
  • Reason I died: Jad's flinch/getting hit animation looks a lot like his magic attack "rolling" animation. Be careful to not switch to magic protection when he is just flinching.
  • His attack speed was slower than I was ready to guard against - my adrenaline may have been the death of me.
  • Ancient curses work very well for deflecting attacks (and have the same drain rate as normal prayers).

I will try again, this time ready for focus.

Should be noted that a) this guide is very out-of-date and b) using only deflect curses and vengeance for the last 60% health or so will kill Jad without the healers.

I just tried again and killed Jad.

I did not use ranged once, nor did I ever have to worry about healers.

I used completely deflection curses. The healers do not spawn if you do not hit him with an actual attack!

Here is a video I used as a guide.

86 ranged
86 hitpoitpoints
71 prayer (with ancient curses on)
84 defense

Helm: Neitiznot
Neck: Fury
Cape: Accumulator
Chest: Black d'hide body or equivalent
Legs: Proselyte
Gloves: Barrows
Boots: Snakeskin
Weapon: Rune crossbow with broad-tipped bolts

Inventory:
3 Ranged potions
8 Saradomin Brews (although I only used 3 the entire run)
16 Super Restore Potions
1 Enhanced Excalibur <---- This was a huge help. Instead of blowing through potions to heal, I used this for a quick 200 hitpoints and defense boost. Then, I did not need to use potions really until the very end (except a few for prayer)

During the Jad fight I used a full brew to heal myself after he hit me (misclick on my prayer switching) and maybe 3-4 super restores. It was pretty easy without the healers.

Got my cape. This guide was awesome.
Used
Head: Full Slayer helm (on task)
Neck: Fury
Body: ACP
Legs: Verac's Plateskirt
Boots: Snakeskin
Cape: Ava's alerter
Gloves: Barrows
Weapon: Rune Crossbow with Diamond bolts (used around 800)

Inventory is the same as Zoov's.

I used deflects. They are really awesome for anyone who can access curses. Deflects also make 360s less of a chore (although you sacrifice Eagle Eye so I'm not sure how much the tradeoff is).
