    Don't add defence?
    Kinda made a mistake on that one.
    Go level up to 80 strength with 1 defence.
    Go level up to 80 strength with 10 defence - Takes less time cause your spending less time replacing food.

    • TheEdB0ys
      TheEdB0ys   1 weeks back

      @tyler maloney I only say 10 or so levels at a time. And for most of these methods you shouldn't need much food in the first place. Slower xp rates are not more efficient, and when you have lower att and str your xp rates are slower. I understand you don't want to bank every 5 minutes, but that shouldn't be happening with you defense being only 10 levels lower than the others

    • tyler maloney

      @TheEdB0ys I guess what I'm trying to say is you suggest str or attack then defence?
      80 str 80 attack then work on defence.
      Your food will last longer with defence, = more / efficient training.

    • TheEdB0ys
      TheEdB0ys   2 weeks back

      What? I never suggested going to 80 str and attack without training defense. I just said for each of the sections do defense last. Am I misunderstanding you?

    The ratio is 3:1 Atk/Str/Def to HP xp

    EDIT: 4 xp per hit on a monster, but 1.33 hp xp, not 1.

          @Martyn Borthwick 1) I said you "seem" like an angry person. Never said you actually were. Just seemed like it, and now you've kind of proven it

          2) I'm not American. But that's ok.

          3) You're still talking about shit that has nothing to do with the point. Just because you typed a whole paragraph (kind of a mountain out of a molehill yeah?) doesn't make you right. You should stay off the internet for a day or 2, and stop us "idiots" from angering you so much with our observations.

        • Martyn Borthwick
          Martyn Borthwick  1 months back

          Yeah, yous keep pretending you can identify emotions from text while prolonging arguments for your own amusement.


          Anger had nothing to do with the subject, yes - until yous opened the door to the subject change making me feel the need to elaborate further to dispel the misunderstanding, you're the ones prolonging the misunderstanding, and you're the one claiming someone else is toxic while trying to bait me into further arguments.
          thats why i clarified it, to move past the misunderstanding, for thats what it was. If you're both incapable of realising this, I'm wasting my time. Misunderstandings will happen on these large scale platforms but people should at least be open minded enough to understand the misunderstanding lol
          if a person has Tourettes, do you just assume hes hostile because he swears? If a person has Autism would you just assume hes angry because he can't communicate properly? Walking to the shop and back must be a fucking adventure, commando rolling down the street to avoid the guy furiously trying to light a cigarette with a box of matchsticks(Last sentence is a joke, obviously) this is what i mean by not being open minded, and it applies to other cultures and nationalities as well.

          Damn bitches, seeing problems and hostility where none exist. Too much rs, not enough real world, lads. Need to open that mind and toughen up snowflake
          Now I'm angry, see the difference?
          the thing that triggers me is stupidity, so there ya go. Mystery solved.
          The rs content creator isn't stupid, but your gaslighting attempts are pathetic, and I'm 90% sure if you do indeed reply it'd be another gaslighting statement anyway.
          Making mountains out of molehills due to ignorance, could you be anymore american?
          I did respond to his points until realised there was a misunderstanding and tried to avoid conflict. I never ignored the points. The rs content creator also tried to avoid conflict, meaning the only hypocrite is you. Next time don't jump into situations assuming shit(like peoples emotions). It just causes problems and makes you look foolish.

          @Martyn Borthwick This had nothing to do with cultural differences. You're being very hypocritical by ignoring the points made here. Instead of responding to the topic, you're just trying to turn it into something wayyy different than not being willing to quest on OSRS

        • Martyn Borthwick
          Martyn Borthwick  1 months back

          "Best of luck, take care and all that" Is proof of anger? Ok.
          Ironic indeed.
          Best of luck to you and all that as well.

          I just don't mince words or sugar coat anything, there is a difference. Scottish people are very blunt, and straight to the point.
          If text was a great assumption of feelings, platforms like Facebook wouldn't be fight organiser central - literally why all those fucked up 'misunderstanding' situations happen.

          Perhaps learning about other cultures is something we can all benefit from here, including myself. I forget other nationalities aren't used to such bluntness, and you nice assuming people should give things the benefit of positive intent, (or at least in this case!) a non-negative intent.

                    The absorption options that are discussed in the video basically work as a shield. So if you have 200 absorption points and 1 hp, you basically have 201 hp

                              People always tell me dh is the best for training melee stats to 99. I'm 99 hp, str, and 98 attack and I still get better exp an hour (potted and unpotted) with obby gear, and bis str bonus. So idk if I'm doing something wrong with dh or if these people just dont pay attention but if someone could offer some insight itd be helpful.

                                I leveled my combat stats with slayer and had good tasks most most of the time, so the xp/h rate was decent. And i made alot of money from the drops.

                                      11:15 is hill Giants a decent farm as well since you also gain good prayer at the same time. Plus if you collect some of the drops you can make alot of gold

                                        Not really. The prayer xp you get is extremely minimal, and so is gp/hr you make there. It's far better to grind out faster xp and make up the money later.

                                        As F2P only Hill Giants aren't a terrible option though

                                        As mentioned in the video Crabs have high health and very low defense. Making them good xp overall since you can hit accurately and you don't have to switch monsters as often with the higher health

                                        Question: with a budget of 10m I bought obsidian shield, helm, body and legs along with the obby sword. I have dragon boots, amulet of glory and combat bracelet. my atk is 70 str/def is 65. How does this seem? Is there a better alternative to this set choice? I do have a whip as well but with the obby set bonus IDK if i should use it or sell it and use the GP for berserker necklace? (yes im grinding dragon defender now.) thanks in advance

                                          With the full Obby set you'd be better off with using the longsword and having the berserker necklace, than using a whip. Seems like you're doing fine at your budget though

                                          Climbing boots give a str bonus, which increases your max hit.

                                          This effects strength xp just as much as attack and defense it all depends on what you're training.

                                            @Albos Ks I would stick with sand crabs. Experiments aren't as afk but not very crowded. Bandits aren't crowded either but just overall not as good as crabs

                                            Stick to sand crabs. Experiments and Bandits aren't bad either

                                            Trevor Rivenburgh no it’s not. The offensive bonuses are better on defender. Offensive stats is what you want when training combat

                                            It's also better than the dragon defender

                                            Not sure how people get 100k+ hour exp with dharoks at 70 atk/str. I was capping at maybe 45k with overloads. Switched to abby dagger and d defender and getting 52k/hour. I've been reading that dharoks isn't really beneficial until lvl 80 atk and 80+ hp. Even the various calculators I saw had abby dagger outperforming dharoks for many levels

                                              Dharok's doesn't do 100k+ until higher levels. Like I mentioned I have a more in depth NMZ guide linked in the description

                                            Is it common to let your health restore at NMZ while using absorbs? I thought the strat was to interrupt it using the rapid heal prayer.

                                              @TheEdB0ys ahh my bad. Its been a while since I've used the Dharoks method, and I thought that once your absorbs were active the rock cake wouldn't hit through it. Much nicer than having to flick prayers every 45 seconds!

                                              Lots of players do use rapid heal to help stay at 1 health. Doesn't matter much to do that or use a rock cake. I've got a NMZ guide linked in the description that goes deeper on NMZ strategy as mentioned
