  • slide 1 of 16

    Godwars Dungeon   The God Wars Dungeon (GWD) is one of the most difficult minigames in Runescape. With the God Wars boss levels being some of the highest in Runescape and also being some of the hardest beasts to kill, extra time should be taken to make sure you have the requirements to succeed, correct items with you, and the perfect strategy in order to beat whichever God Wars boss you want to fight.

    This Runescape Armadyl guide will explain all the requirements, items needed, and a good strategy in order to team or solo Armadyl and hopefully get an Armadyl Hilt drop.

    Armdayl God Wars Minimum Requirements

    09-03-18 23.01.11   God Wars is one of the most difficult clan activities in Runescape. It is especially hard to get a hilt drop from the beasts at God Wars, let alone an Armadyl hilt drop from Karee in the Armadyl GWD. Here is a list of the basic requirements one should have before even thinking about heading out to participate in this difficult activity and following this Armdayl God Wars guide.

    1) Combat level 100+

    2) 90+ Hitpoints

    3) 90+ Range: 99 Range is recommended to kill the Armadyl boss fast.

    4) 70+ Defense

    5) High Prayer Level: 70+ Prayer is recommended.

    Having 99 Prayer is a great advantage!

    6) 1-5 million GB to buy armor and supplies.

    (Need fast Runescape money? Check out the Runescape Fishing Guide and Runescape Fletching Guide to learn how to make quick Runescape money for this Armadyl Guide.)

    7) A clan of 3-5 people, unless you try to solo Armadyl

    The Armadyl Solo Guide is on Page 5.

    With these requirements, or better, you should be able to follow this Runescape Armadyl guide and beat the Armadyl boss, Karee, many times during your Armadyl trip.

    Now that you know what requirements you should have in order to continue through this Armadyl guide, the next page, Page 2, will explain the armor requirements to protect yourself against the Armadyl boss and what weapon you should use when fighting the Armadyl boss. Page 3 will go through what items you will need in your inventory and how to get kill count at the Armadyl GWD. Page 4 will then explain one of the best ways to kill the Armadyl boss with a team. Page 5 is the Armadyl Solo Guide, which will explain everything there is to know about how to solo Armadyl. Finally, on Page 6 we will explain a few tips everyone should know before soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl Godwars Dungeon.

    Armadyl Trip Armor Requirements

    Proper armor is one of the most important requirements of any Armadyl guide to fight the Armdayl boss, Kree'arra.

    There are several different types of armour you can take, but the best setup would start with a Verac's plateskirt, Karil's leather top, and either an Armadyl Helmet or a Dhorak's helmet. (Hint: the reason you need 70 defence is to wear the Barrows items just mentioned.) The helmet you need to take depends on if you have an Armadyl pendant or not. An Armadyl pendant can be obtained from a quest, but most likely you will need to get an Armadyl helmet as the quest is very difficult to finish.

    Note: A piece of Armadyl is needed to get into the Armadyl GWD. This is why you need the helmet or the pendant. You can also choose to wear any other piece of Armadyl armor, or even full Armadyl armor if you have the money to purchase all the pieces of Armadyl armor.

    09-03-18 23.01.48   For this Armadyl guide, you will need two sets of boots: climbing boots and dragon boots. The climbing boots are used to travel over the obstacles which you need to cross while getting to the Armadyl GWD. The dragon boots are necessary to fight the Armadyl boss, Kree'arra, as they give you much more defense.

    You also need a Zamarock item. If you have a full Zamarock book from the Lighthouse quest, then that will do just fine. If you don't, just buy a Zamarock helmet. This Zamarock item is needed for when you are obtaining the necessary kill count to get into the arena, which will prevent many of the Zamarcok monsters from attacking you. When you are done fulfilling the kill count, have a Obby shield or Dragon shield for extra protection.

    For a cape, use the Ava's accumulator, which will automatically retrieve your bolts. Finally, grab a Fury amulet for your necklace and a ring of life, just in case you end up having a near death experience.

    Your weapon of choice is the rune crossbow with Ruby (e) and Diamond (e) bolts. (I will explain why you need both later; however these are both used to kill the Armadyl boss.) Grab about 100 Emerald (e) bolts to get kill count with. You can use your Diamond (e) bolts to get your kill count, but using Emerald (e) bolts will save you some money.

    What Weapon to Use at Armadyl God Wars

    Rune Crossbow   Your weapon of choice is the rune crossbow with Ruby (e) and Diamond (e) bolts. (I will explain why you need both later; however these are both used to kill the Armadyl boss.) Grab about 100 Emerald (e) bolts to get kill count with. You can use your Diamond (e) bolts to get your kill count, but using Emerald (e) bolts will save you some money.

    Now that you know what the level requirements and armor requirements are for killing the Armadyl boss at the Armadyl GWD, continue onto Page 3 where we will explain the item requirements needed to go to the Armadyl GWD and fight Karee, along with how to get kill count for the Armadyl God Wars Dungeon. After you learn what items are needed for the Armadyl GWD, you can continue onto the two Runescape Armadyl guides: The Armadyl Team Guide on Page 4 and the Armadyl Solo Guide to soloing Armadyl on Page 5. Finally, on Page 6 we will explain a few tips everyone should know before soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl Godwars Dungeon.

    Item Requirements for the Armadyl GWD

    Armadyl Chestplate!!   When you are working your way to the Armadyl GWD, you will need to have a mithril grapple, and DON'T FORGET ONE! This is needed to get across to the GWD into the Armadyl GWD area, where you can then get your kill count and later enter the Armadyl God Wars Dungeon. Without a mithril grapple, you will not be able to get across to the Armadyl GWD. You will have to teleport back to a bank and return back to the Armadyl GWD once you have a mithril grapple with you.

    You will need to have about 10-12 Saradomin brews, 7-9 super restores, and the armor items mentioned in the previous section of this Runescape Armadyl guide. Also remember to bring a teleport tab so you can leave the arena once you are done fighting. Having a teleport tab is much better than teleport runes because it takes up less inventory space and you can simply click the tab to teleport, instead of switching to your magic spells and then teleporting.

    If you have a high Summoning level, bring a Summoning familair with you that will carry extra items. Inside the familiar, bring extra Saradomin brews, super restores, and also another familiar pouch, just in case your first familiar disappears and you don't have enough room to carry the items it drops once it disappears.

    How to Get Kill Count for Armadyl GWD

    Aviansie   The easiest part of this Runescape Armadyl guide is getting kill count. To take the least amount of damage while you are getting kill count, head across the large hole in the Earth with your mithril grapple to enter the Armadyl GWD area and kill 40 of the level 70-95 Aviansies. Don't attack the higher level 100+ ones! They will only waste food, prayer, and time for your familiar, if you have one.

    Remember to pick up the drops from the Aviansies. Runescape Aviansies drop Adamant bars, which will help take care of most of the money you will spend on going to the Armadyl GWD.

    Before you enter the Armadyl GWD to kill the Armadyl boss, Kree'arra, make sure your clan meets up in a lootshare world, joins someones clan chat, and everyone has lootshare on. This will automatically sell your larger drops, split it up into even shares, and drop coins for each person to pick up, so everyone gets an equal share of the more expensive drops, such as an Armadyl Hilt drop.

    Now that you know the level requirements, armor requirements, item requirements and how to get kill count for the Armadyl GWD, you can continue onto Page 4 where we will go through how to kill the Armadyl boss with a team. Then, Page 5 is the Armadyl Solo Guide, where we will explain all the information needed for soloing Armadyl. Finally, on Page 6 we will explain a few tips everyone should know before soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl Godwars Dungeon.

    The Armadyl Team Guide to Kill Armadyl with a Team

    Armadyl Hilt!!!!   Fighting Karee to get an Armadyl hilt drop isn't very hard, but it can be very risky. Before you head in, you need to realize you are taking a large amount of money into the Armadyl GWD and you need to make sure you are full protected from getting hit with 40+ hits from Armadyl's range attacks. To make sure you are protected, make sure you always pray range, beginning before you enter into the Armadyl God Wars Dungeon, until all the monsters in the Armadyl GWD are dead. Once they are all dead, you can take off your prayer, but make sure you have your prayer on before the Armadyl boss and all of its protectors reappear.

    Although it is sometimes funny to see your friends make this mistake, don't mistakenly pray magic or melee, because you will be hit with a 40+ range attack and you could easily face death. (I have seen it happen plenty of times! If it happens to you or to someone else, get someone with 70+ prayer to bless the grave, so the stuff doesn't disappear and they can return to the dungeon to get their items.)

    When you are in the Armadyl GWD, if you take a left from the entrance door and run to the far wall, you will find an altar you can use to restore pray every once in a while. When you begin attacking Karee, don't worry about attacking the three smaller monsters! You will deal with them later.

    Begin by using Ruby (e) bolts on the Armadyl boss until it gets to half health. Once it is at half, switch to Diamond (e) bolts to finish it off. Killing Karee, the Armadyl boss, should not take longer than a couple minutes.

    Once the Armadyl boss is dead, it will drop items. Hopefully, you will get an Armadyl Hilt drop; however, remember Armadyl Hilts are rare, so don't be discouraged if you don't get one for many trips in a row. Sooner or later, your team will strike it rich with an Armadyl Hilt drop.

    Afterward, have everyone split up and kill the remaining 3 monsters which consist of one mager, ranger and meleer. Pray from the specific attacks and then repeat the process once Kree'arra respawns. Your clan should be able to stay anywhere from 6-25 kills, depending on your team's strength, and you can keep track of how many you have by looking in the top right corner of your screen at your kill count.

    Once everyone's out of supplies or you get a goo drop, teleport with your teletab.

    Good luck, and don't give up if you don't get one right away, or even in your first couple trips. You will eventually get one and the millions just keep adding up after that.

    What to do After Your Team Kills the Armadyl Boss

    Armadyl Boss - Kree'arra   After you kill the Armadyl boss, have your team split up and kill the remaining 3 monsters, which consist of one mager, one ranger and one meleer. Pray from the specific attacks and then repeat the process once Karee, the Armadyl boss, respawns. Your clan should be able to stay anywhere from 6-25 kills, depending on your team's strength, and you can keep track of how many monsters you have killed by looking at your kill count, in the top right corner of your screen.

    Once everyone runs out of supplies or you get a good drop, simply teleport with your teletab.

    Now that you know how to kill the Armadyl boss with a team, you may feel like the Armadyl boss has gotten easy to kill. If you feel like you may be able to try soloing Armadyl yourself, continue onto Page 5 for the Armadyl Solo Guide, in order to find out everything you need to solo Armadyl for Armadyl Hilt Drops. Finally, on Page 6 we will explain a few tips everyone should know before soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl Godwars Dungeon.

    The Armadyl Solo Guide: Soloing Armadyl for Armadyl Hilt Drops

    Armadyl Solo Guide   Once you have 40 kill count and you are ready to begin soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl GWD, stop at the entrance door and drink your potions. Remember to turn your range pray on before you walk into the door, or Kree'arra will hit some crazy 60+ hit on you, putting you in a very vulnerable position to die fast. When you are ready, walk into the door and begin your first time soloing Kree'arra.

    Don't be worried or nervous. Just stay calm and concentrate on what you are doing. The worst thing to do is get nervous and all worked up, since you will then make mistakes and most likely lose a bunch of money.

    As you solo Armadyl and follow this Armadyl solo guide, always remember to stay away from Kree'arra but keep attacking her. If you get too close or stop attacking her, she will come and start melee attacking you. Although she may not hit high with melee attacks, she will definitely drain your health if you don't get away and start attacking her back.

    Also, don't worry about the Armadyl guards as you solo Armadyl, since they will most likely not hit you or hit you with very little damage and you will take care of them once you finish soloing the Armadyl boss.

    What to do After You Solo the Armadyl Boss

    Kree'arra - Armadyl GWD   When you kill the Armadyl boss, you have to now solo Armadyl guards. There are three Armadyl guards: the mager, meleer, and ranger.

    Right after you solo kill the Armadyl boss, keep your pray on the protect from range pray and run to a corner. The mage Armadyl guard will probably be attacking you, but your range armor will help protect you from him. Since you have good armor, high skill levels, and shield on, you should be protected from the meeler for a few minutes. The only one who is really a nucense is the melee Armadyl guard, especially if you do not have a very good defense level.

    Begin soloing the Armadyl guards by attacking the meleer. Once you get him out of the way, attack the mager and, finally, kill the ranger.

    Once everyone is dead, you have a few seconds to fill up on health and prayer. If you need to, run over to the alter and pray before the Armadyl boss and guards appear again, so you can be ready to solo the Armadyl boss right away.

    The next and final page, Page 6, will explain a few tips everyone should know before soloing Armadyl at the Armadyl Godwars Dungeon.

    Tips to Lasting More Armadyl Trips and Getting Armadyl Hilt Drops

    Armadyl Hilt Drop Tips   When soloing the Armadyl boss and the Armadyl guards, you will probably last only 2-3 rounds per trip, the first couple of times through this Armadyl solo guide. Once you get more comfortable soloing in the Armadyl GWD, you should begin to last more and more rounds per trip, possibly doing 5-30 rounds per trip, or more, depending on how good your amour is, how good your combat levels are, and how much supplies you end up using throughout the trip.

    One tip to soloing Karee and soloing the Armadyl guards is to not be discouraged if you go through over 20 trips without getting good Armadyl drops while soloing Kree'arra, which are called dry trips. Also, don't expect every drop to be an Armadyl Hilt drop because it could anywhere from 1-30+ trips to the Armadyl GWD until you see an Armadyl Hilt drop. However, once you get the Armadyl Hilt drop, you shure will be rewarded for all your efforts!

    Now that you've read the Runescape Armadyl guide, with tips to Armadyl Hilt drops, what armor to wear to Armadyl, what items to bring to Armadyl, what to do to kill Armadyl, and the Armadyl solo guide to soloing the Armadyl boss and soloing the Armadyl guards, you should be able to make quick Runescape money in the Armdyl GWD.
