This talk page is for discussing the Alchemical Hydra/Strategies page.

I don't think crystal halberd is a superior weapon at all when fighting hydra. I tried it myself and was only able to land double hit specs on very rare ocassions. My kill time was also a lot slower on average with the c hally compared to BGS or DWH. I think lowering its defense is overall more important to kill speed by comparison.

Can we get a gear set up for melee[edit source]

I have done 2k+ kills with melee(lance) and i highly rate it over the blowpipe setup. Can we get a melee gear setup put in aswell as the range so people dont have to trawl youtube to find answers. Would love to help set it up but i have no idea how. Empty Goonbag  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Empty Goonbag (talk) on 05:49, 22 April, 2020 (UTC).

Inquisitor gear is not bis for Alchemical Hydra.[edit source]

xyborg#8810, Luna Lana#6873, and I (UltimatePotato#3969) used fruitdeeps dps calc to find (assuming all the other gear listed on the wiki is bis) that bandos had a higher dps on hydra than inquisitor source. We didn't preform a dps comparison assuming damage reductions, which may change the outcome, but we figured this wasn't significant enough to merit further evaluation. Users are obviously more than welcome to preform further testing.
