In Topic: Just the opposite

Where were you when manipulation clans were pushing stuff up several times over? I lost a ton of will to play seeing myself miss item after item, meanwhile many of the items I picked did nothing or went down.

In Topic: Is the Zaryte Bow the best at anything?

Hand cannon is best at tds so the bow is only really useful for those with low firemaking.

I strongly prefer ccbow with rune arrows, having used both for many trips. Handcannon is MUCH less accurate, which means it takes longer to get the shield off, which means less time spent using your good weapon. That could be partly that I use void, though, which favors ranged bonus from the weapon a lot more than dhide. Ccbow also has the advantage of not blowing up though, one time I got unlucky and lost my handcannon and spare within 3 kills, at 95 fm.


I prefer D Hide as hitting a 250 or so, then my Steel Titan specing 200+ is better than me hitting 320 and my steel titan specing 0 due to Protect Range.

I can definitely see it being a convenient alternative to ccbow and rune bolts at TDs used alongside a 2h melee weapon like the maul, since you don't have to pick up ammo. Depends on how expensive it is per shot, though.


I always liked CLS at TDs due to being able to use a Defender. Rune Crossbow also allows for a Defender. I like Defender so much at TDs because it really helps with Darklight. I'm also like 55k tokens away from CCbow. According to RSwiki, it's about 85 coins per shot, given our high Smithing Levels.

In Topic: Nex Strategy Discussion

Verac or Range, which would be better for an FFA? And if Verac, should I use Piety over Turmoil since I read that Curses heal Nex or something.

In Topic: How are you preparing for Nex?

08 January 2011 - 10:18 PM



I have a strong feeling Dragon Defenders will be better than Divines for FFA Nex, which is what I intend to do once Nex is released. If it's a boss you Mage, then I bought an Arcane. I might DG to 200k tokens and then get the Chaotic that's best for Nex if it's not Longsword/Rapier.

I have a strong feeling that at least some of the time Nex will be flying and therefore be immune to melee. Based on the teaser pics, it definitely looks like he is on the ground in one picture and flying in the other.


Also it is a decent chance he will be using some sort of ancient curses or magicks. He may leech stats, he might freeze, ect.. Bosses typically drop items that are useful for killing them, so its possible range might be a primary offense against him with melee and mage being secondaries at times.

Question is, are a 2h melee/ranged/mage weapon going to be most effective, or will a shield and 1h weapons be the better option.


Hence the Arcane and my DGing for a 3rd Chaotic. And if it's weak to the Bow it drops or anything else it drops, expect CRAZY prices if that item is required for serious FFAing or for pro teams.
