Complete rune with RuneScape gold gaunts and serker shield. Full d'hide (d'hide coif optional, never really noticed a difference) and also anti-dragonbreath shield. Maple longbow (sighted) and rune scim are the chief weapons, with a shortbow for unarmoured or lightly armoured targets. Kayle's sling and crossbow with bolts for idiots attempting to pull dumb tricks on me. I soundly beat every staker my level (and always beat people up to 10 levels higher than me) unless they are rune-wearing mages or assembles like mine, both cases in which I give them a run for their money.
Yes I know magic level can be higher, but I can't say I really care, at the present time. I've heard a rumor that high magic levels generally lower the amount of magic damage taken, though, thus training it greater (without leveling hp) through high alchs or teleports will probably be helpful in the long term. My main concern are three factors: the extent I should train stove, attack, and defense.
I will not be leveling up strength anymore; strength is unecessary in staking and that I believe I have trained this up too much already. At present, I'm training strike to keep up with range only enough in order to not affect combat level, which is fairly straightforward. I had optimally like a staker at about level 80-85, where rangers reach their prime relative to meleers going crazy out on att, str, and def. However I'm unsure what my shield level should be from the time I get to cb 80-85 (and keep in mind, the further defence I train the attack/range I'll have compared ). Anybody want to throw a couple of suggestions regarding this and some other facets of my staking build?
Major shifts in Runescape's paradigm have happened
I've been studying the discussion, and I can say I'm amused at all the members that can think that simply because we don't want to squander 6 bucks to article on the forum implies we're noobs that don't deserve to live. I laugh my butt off with the members that impersonate f2pers that attempt to ask for free stuff if their trying to make us look bad, and honestly, they shouldn't be allowed to post. I will destroy their main points. F2pers only want more things. In the time we receive level 72 in all skills, we start to buy RS3 gold realise that won't happen. All the posts that come from that stage are just members wanting to make f2pers appear bad.
