Runescape Armadyl and Solo Guide

How to solo armadyl boss on runescape.


This guide is designed for people who only think they could handle one or two kills a trip. There are many different tatics, stats, gear, pets etc people can use and i’m only expressing MY OPINION. So if you disagree with any of it please tell me and if I agree with you i’ll adjust things :)

Recommended Gear

There are several things to take into account when deciding what items to take. These include -

What items will you lose when you die

  • Mage defence
  • Melee defence
  • Range attack
  • Prayer bonus

Obviously the more + range you have the faster he’s going to die but then again the less defence you have the faster your going to die so it’s nice to try and get a nice balance.

The following equipment will NOT give you the best stats for this but it will save you ALOT of money if you die and will be able to get you through atleast 1 or 2 kills.

Helm: For the helm slot I would suggest either an archer helm, robin hat or a zammy/sara coif. All add + range, have pretty ok mage defence and don’t give to much when you high alch. You could always take a barrows helmet like torag or verac. However these do cost alot to alch and if you die you will be keeping one and therefore losing another item. However they have VERY good melee defence stats and verac gives a very nice + 3 prayer bonus.

Amulet: You have a couple choices here… if you are going for a couple kills at most I would suggest armadyl pendany. It gives no stats but it does stop you being attacked by the amaadyl monsters while getting the kill count. Another option is the glory. You wont keep it on death so you can keep other expencive items and it does give a nice + range attack bonus and mage/melee defencive bonuses. Also gives a small + prayer bonus. You could always take both and have your glory in your inv while your getting the kc.

Cape: Accumulator, picks up your arrows and gives a nice range attack bonus.

Arrow slot: This will have your mit

graple, ruby bolts and diamond bolts.

Weapon slot: Rune crossbow.

Shield slot: Few choices here. Granite shield is very cheap to buy and if you lose it you are only going to have to pay 70-80 k for a new one. It’s defencive stats aren’t great however and it does add a massive – 8 range attack. Other choice is a dragon square, it is the most expencive and you will keep it on death over another item it’s – range is only 3 which is even better than a dragonfire shield. It’s defencive stats also beat obby and granite. I would NOT suggest a god book because the melee guardian will rip you to pieces solo.

    taking bolts pouch saves you some inv space, and using b2p tabs save inv space to :P

    and if you run under kree, he will be “dancing” on top of you and he can’t attack you. so you heal and attack again :P

    and you could use ranging potions for higher hits and if you use them you can use 4 brews on 1 sup restore :D
