In Topic: Daemonheim Task Set- 10/9/13

18 September 2013 - 01:11 AM

 

 

I'm really liking the idea of HHB with Sag coif, body, and chaps now. Desperado + Sniper or Tank, as well as shield abilities and having about equal DPS to other Ranged weapons I think as well as the LP and almost the Def of a Sag shield?
Only considerable now of course since HHB can be effectively hunted for on hard mode floors...

Hex is about 1.25 units of dps, with one-handed weapons at 1 unit and two-handed/dual-wield weapons at 1.5. So you will definitely be giving up a lot of dps (about 1/6th down from a 2h weapon). In my experience with solo hard mode, the main thing is that you have a hood, body and two attack styles, because ranging everything is going to suck bad.

 

Ah... Good to know about HHB I suppose. Related, but I saw someone with the "of Daemonheim" title today, and asked what binds he used for hard mode. He said SSH, Primal Platebody, 2H, and on- and off-hand Knives. Apparently Knives are better than they should be, but I haven't investigated.

 

How does hard mode even work? As in, how do you activate it? Someone on the RSOF insinuated that only the party leader needs to have access to hard mode for the entire party to enter it. Being no where close to the Divination level required and with no intention of grinding Div soon, I doubt I'll be finishing Elite in the near future.

 

Knives are better than the hexhunter bow, and slightly worse than the sagittarian shortbow. Knives also force you to give up either the blood necklace or hood, both of which are far more useful than knives. 

 

You're prompted to select hard mode when you first attempt to start a floor. Only the party leader needs to have access - anyone can do a hard mode floor so long as the party leader has the elite diary done.

I absolutely love the rewards to the Daemonheim task set, especially the extra PGT, potion bind, and free laws/cosmics. I like that we've been given options in terms of opening doors in the form of portents (divination) and free potions. We'll be updating our requirements in DGS for October, likely requiring only the medium task set complete, but heavily suggesting the elite set, too.

 

The tasks themselves are mostly easy, and the level requirements are far easier than most other task sets. The two tasks that are difficult, though, are practically unbearable: the frost dragon and the sagas. It took me around 40 small and medium floors to find my frost dragon, and the sagas are a pain in the ass without a detailed guide and a lot of patience for clunky controls.

 

All in all, I'm very happy with the set. Hard mode is also interesting because it forces the team to be very careful with gate placement such that they don't get stuck in any unnecessary rooms, and it definitely tests their ability to deal out damage as efficiently as possible. I don't see it becoming too popular, but we'll be adding a hard mode section to the official dungeoneering records sheet nonetheless. 

 

10/10, but I'm still waiting for my dungeoneering finale, Jagex.

Well, my Runescape career has been odd for the past five months or so. I haven't been DGing much at all, but I have been actively running DGS behind the scenes (doing maybe 90% of the administrative work). Recently I've been helping out with our EoC research and doing a lot of solo meds to train myself. Luckily, EoC isn't very different from any other MMO that uses abilities and global cooldowns, etc, so I'm pretty good at it now. In about three weeks I'll have a lot more spare time to DG, so there's that.

Oh, I have a girlfriend. :) Pretty much every DGS rank is very aware of her by now since I talk about her incessantly on Skype (Yang and Bobby might be aware if you guys read anything in the Skype group :P). We met online, through our blogs, and we live on opposite sides of the country. We've been dating for four months, Skyping every single night for hours on end. In four days she'll be flying here to California to spend two weeks with me. :)

So between my girlfriend, school, two jobs, and having to take care of the administrative ends in DGS, I just don't have much time to actually play Runescape. I'm okay with that, though - I enjoy running DGS and I don't necessarily need to play to do that. In case anyone is curious, DGS is nearly two years old (February 1st). I'm planning on releasing a full history of the clan on its second birthday, so lookout for that on xp-waste.com.
