This talk page is for discussing the Rune dragon/Strategies page.

This page needs some updates on gear. Neitiznot helm is considered BiS when off-task.

Infernal cape > Ardougne 3/4 > Fire cape

Fighter torso should be better than obsidian platebody.

Ring of suffering > Treasonous < Berserker

Infernal cape has lower stab (+4) than Ardougne cloak 4 (+6) though.

More information should be presented on a few things.[edit source]

The gear setups often depend if one is alting or not, the current display doesn't account for this at all.

For on task - Neiz/Bandos/Lance/DFS (or avernic defender) are acceptable BiS. However, alting there are two views - justicar is used by some due to it's increased afkness despite slower kills (allows for more more focused main activities) but bandos will always pull out ahead in kills p/h - however one has to be able to monitor the alt a fair bit since it takes much more damage.

Better presentation of these points would be ideal.

Puzzling sentence choice[edit source]

"With base 90 Melee stats and a ghrazi rapier, which is the second best stab weapon, using melee against rune dragons is a viable option."

The DHL is presented as best-in-slot yet the sentence specifically mentions only the 2nd best option. Is there a reason for this? Is it to indicate that from 3rd best option (Zamorakian hasta) onwards, using melee is NOT a viable option? In that case it is pointless to include unviable options in the table at all.

The sentence "ghrazi rapier, which is the second best stab weapon" is factually incorrect. It is the best stab weapon in the game, and is the 2nd best only in the niche of dragon slaying equipment.

I have fixed the grammer, and there are plenty of cases where gear is shown that it wouldn't be viable to use, but it is available should someone really want to use melee. However I have added a recomendation that they may be more successful using ranged or mage if they have worse melee weapons. Luna Lana probaly mispelt this 16:43, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
