How To Slay Ice Strykewyrms Post EOC

November 15, 2013 By: BRT Cj Category: Runescape Monsters, Runescape skills, Runescape Tips 1 Comment →

This will be the first of many slayer guides to be revamped into post EOC condition. (Please bare in mind I don’t have the runescape bank balance to afford maxed gear, but these guides will include most items that people can afford on an average bank balance.)

Ice Strykewyrms require 93 slayer to kill, as well as having obtained a fire cape or paying the 2k slayer points to do damage to them. They have 15,000 health, and are extremely weak to fire spells. I used the fairy rings to get to them, the code for it is DKS then go in the tunnel north of there, you may have to unblock the passages to gain access to the right side of the cave.

Below is a picture of the inventory I used, I forgot to add a yak pouch and scrolls until halfway through the task, you can use any Beast of Burden to store loot as I used the food up to pick up loot.

Each dose of prayer renewal and overload lasted around 12-13 kills with the chaotic staff or the wand of treachery and ahrim’s book combination. Bare in mind that all my guides will be based on using the momentum ability.

This is the equipment I wore, you have to have a fire cape or kiln cape to do damage to ice strykewyrms unless you paid the 2k slayer points. The aura is penance, you can swap that for vampyrism if you don’t have access to soul split.

You can get a staff of light drop from these monsters, I’ve always had bad luck getting them though. Here is the loot I collected from 166 Ice strykewyrms.

In total the loot valued at 670k at medium price, I haven’t done the hard clue scroll as of yet. The task took about an hour with minimal focus.

That’s pretty much about it for the guide, if you have any questions, suggestions, or if you think I have missed anything in the guide or even just comments about the guide feel free to comment in the box below, happy slaying. 🙂

I have also opened up my personal friends chat “BRT Cj” so that people can hang out and chat in there about slayer or anything else, please know that trolling or flaming other people in the chat will not be tolerated.

Tips To Get Multiple Enhanced Excaliburs

December 23, 2011 By: BRT Cj Category: Bestruntips Tips & Secrets, Runescape Items, Runescape Tips No Comments →

I recently got told by a friend about a method to get more then one enhanced Excaliburs, as I died at Armadyl God Wars Dungeon and lost my only one I had.

You need to have completed the hard Seers diary for this to work.

For those that don’t know what an enhanced Excalibur does, it gives a special attack that requires 100% special, or 90% with ring of vigour that gives 15% defence bonus, the same as a super defence potion, heals 20hp per 2 seconds for 10 seconds, or 20 seconds if you have done the elite Seers diary. You can swap weapons and still have the healing and defence effect active, however if you log out you will lose the healing effect. This is a cheap replacement for Saradomin Godsword, and is often used at Armadyl God Wars Dungeon.

It is a simple and often not used method for multiple items, talk to the lady of the lake in Taverly, just south of the tree patch and ask about getting your Excalibur back, (it will cost 500gp per excalibur) then drop it and ask for another one, repeat as many times as required then pick them up and ask her to enchant them, she will enchant them all in one go.

Hope this mini tip helped, more coming in the future. 🙂

Nomad Killing Guide Video

October 09, 2010 By: BRT Cj Category: Runescape Tips 1 Comment →

Hello all,

I have made a video about killing nomad in the quest nomad’s requiem, as I have noticed so many people have trouble with this fight, here is the information about the fight.

Aj used armadyl chestplate, plateskirt, helm of neitznoit, fury amulet, rune crossbow with diamond bolts (e), dragon boots, blessed spirit shield, defence cape, barrows gloves, whip and dragon dagger p++ in inventory for specials.

The familiars Aj used were war tortoise, and spirit kyatt. You can substitute these for pak yak and steel titan if you have them.

When preparing inventory and Beast of Burden, make sure you keep saradomin brews and super restores at a ratio of 3:1 brew:res. Take a couple rocktails for emergencys, boost pots don’t seem to be worth the effort, apart from overloads if you have them. Use soulsplit instead of deflect magic if you have it, have drain mage,range and melee ones on, Aj only had sap drains in this video.

After your beast of burden has ran out of inventory dismiss it and summon an attacking familiar, spirit kyatt seems to do a good job for low levels.

Avoid stepping on the orange things he drops as they do 400 damage as you might be able to see in this vid when Aj made that mistake.

When Nomad teleports you and freezes you to the spot, that’s when he will do a special attack that will do your constitution level minus 1, so heal up over your health limit with brews/rocktails.

When he talks about wrath, that is when he will do 750 damage attack.
He will talk about how your senses will serve you, that is when he will split up into 4, attack the one that attacks first if you can, also your familiar will probably pick him out first.

Nomad will heal when you get him to 1/3 health, then will go into melee rage mode when you get him back down to 1/4 health, when he does that make sure you turn deflect/protect melee on or he will down you quickly.

Some tips about spirit kyatt scrolls, it seems that it can backfire and attack you, and hit pretty accurately, make sure to call it if it turns on you.

At the end of the video, you speak to the imp and go back to see nomad’s dead body. After the quest complete scroll, you can talk to the imp and ask him about rewards and you can pick your colour cape.

Here is the video, hope you enjoy it. 🙂

Buying Battlestaffs Is Now Easier

March 18, 2009 By: crowlion Category: Misc Runescape Guides, Runescape Items, Runescape skills, Runescape Tips No Comments →

It looks as though there was another improvement to Runescape during its latest upgrade. You now get all of the battlestaffs from Zaff (in Varrock) in noted form. This means that there is no repeat trips needed that waste your energy. Nice update Jagex.. keep them coming.

For those that do not know already, buying battlestaffs from Zaff for 7000 each, then selling them in the Grand Exchange is very profitable. Currently the price in the Grand Exchange is 8284 per battlestaff. So that is 1284 profit per staff.

The problem is that without any Varrock Achievement diary completions, you can only get 8 battlestaffs a day (that is still over 10k profit per day though). If you finish the 1st level of Varrock Achievement Diary, then you can buy 16 per day (over 20k profit per day). 2nd level give the ability of buying 32 in a day (over 40k profit in a day) and 3rd level lets you buy 64 battlestaffs per day (over 80k profit per day).

So you can see that this is a profitable system. I buy the full 64 every day that I play.  Having them noted saves having to do 3 trips.

Also, you can buy air orbs from the GE (currently 1093) and make air battlestaffs (as long as you have over 66 crafting). This will then give you some handy crafting experience (137.5 each). Cost is 8093 and you can alch them for 9300 for the cost of 1 nature rune.  This is what I do with my battlestaffs. Profit is over 64K minus the nature runes, and 8800 crafting experience.

All the best. 🙂

Evil Tree Event

February 28, 2009 By: crowlion Category: Misc Runescape Guides, runescape mini games, Runescape skills, Runescape Tips 5 Comments →

The evil tree event from Runescape came out a few days ago and Delarue64 and I tried it recently. Amazingly we had 2 Elder trees in a row. They are the toughest trees to kill.

You find out about the evil trees by talking to a spirit tree. They 1st tell you about a sappling and then give a clue to the whereabouts. For the 1st tree the clue was something like “the southern coast of a tropical island”. This turned out to be on Ape Atoll. The 2nd tree gave a clue something like “near a runecrafting altar”. This tree was near the body altar.

Here are some pictures Delarue64 took when a sapling was being nurtured at McGrubor’s woods, the sapling ended up being a willow tree. They show all the stages of a sapling. He didn’t nurture the sapling as he didn’t want to take the risk of getting a low tree, nurturing trees counts as one of your daily trees. 🙁

This is the first stage of the sapling, when you first find it.

This is the second stage of the sapling, before it turns into a young tree.

This is the final stage for the sapling before it turns into an evil tree, this is the 2nd stage of a young tree.

This is the final stage for the sapling before it turns into an evil tree, this is the 2nd stage of a young tree.

After a couple of minutes or so, the sappling develops into an evil tree and the spirit tree then gives and option to teleport to it. Below is a picture of us at the Elder Evil tree at Ape Atoll.  In fact I was the 1st person to find it on this occasion. I was hoping for a reward similar to shooting stars, but that did not happen, lol.

If you try to cut the tree near the roots, then the roots will knock you away from it. So you either have to move away or chop the roots.

One thing to note about this location is that poisonous spiders possibly attack you if you do not wear the monkey gree gree. Delarue64 got attacked and had to come back with some anti-poison pots.  So one must be careful what you bring to an evil tree. It could possibly take you to a dangerous location.

This was the 1st Evil Tree that we found, which was located at Ape Atoll. It was an Elder Tree.

This was the 1st Evil Tree that we found, which was located at Ape Atoll. It was an Elder Tree.

An Elder Tree requires 85 wood cutting and/or 85 firemaking.  That meant that I could not burn the tree, because I had less than 85 fire making, but Delarue64 could. Below is a picture of Delarue64 burning the tree at the 2nd location (near the mind altar).  In order to burn the tree, you need to have some kindling from chopping down one of the roots. You then click on “light fire” as shown below.  You can have up to 8 fires per Elder Tree and it gave Delarue64 about 16,000 fire experience for all 8 fires. I also got about 14,000 woodcutting xp from chopping the tree.

When the tree is dead, you can claim your rewards. The rewards differ for everyone, but I got 74 mahogany logs, 1 maple tree seed and some coins for the 1st tree and below is a picture of the rewards from the second tree.

Here is the rewards that I got from the Evil Elder Tree

On top of those rewards the leprechaun gives you a great bonus that can be seen below.

This bonus is pretty cool. You can keep cutting trees without having to bank.

Below is a picture of delarue64 and me cutting willows and taking advantage of the free banking time.

You can see stars above my bald head after a willow log gets sent directly to my bank. In the meantime, the bottom right hand side shows a burning log from Delarue64's inferno adze.

It seems like this is good experience and worth while. I got a further 21k xp from cutting willows in the 21 minutes. The bad news is that only 2 trees can be cut in a day. It might be worth joining a evil tree clan chat to alert you about upcoming evil trees. I did notice that there was a clan “tree find” that seemed to be active. Happy evil tree hunting. 🙂

Updates:

The spirit trees now give more information on the timing of the evil tree sprouting. The spirit tree now tells you the time it will take to sprout… over 1 hour, over half an hour, under half an hour, less than 15 minutes, about to sprout, a sappling has sprouted and the evil tree is ready to dispatch. The 2 most popular evil tree clans are “eviltreechat” and “treehunters”.

When  there a sappling has sprouted, the spirit tree will give you a clue to its whereabouts. After a while you will get used to the locations, although I tend to wait at the spirit tree for a free teleport most of the time.

Lost Cannon In Runescape

February 19, 2009 By: crowlion Category: Runescape Items, Runescape Tips 11 Comments →

Have you ever lost your dwarven cannon before on Runescape? Well last night I lost mine for the 1st time when my Internet connection was lost for several minutes.

Although I know that it was only pixels and only a game, it was still a bit sad to know that I had lost about 600k due to a faulty Internet connection.  However, after telling Delarue64 about me losing the cannon, he told me how to get it back… and for free. 🙂 Below is how you too can get your cannon back for free.

It is actually quite simple to get your cannon back. First you have to find Nulodion, who can be found in the western building to the north of the Dwarven Mines. He will then give you some options.

Here are the 1st questions that Nulodion asks
