Hi! and welcome to my aviansie tanking guide.
i saw some of DIY’ers going to aviansie using Gas’s guide and thats nice. but with tanking, you don’t use prayer potions, thus making ALOT more money per trip, not mentioning how long you can stay there! In fact, if you got friends to bring you full armor once yours is breaking, or if you don’t use barrow items, you can probaly stay there forever!
So, here is my guide! woo!
you need either 60 str\60 agil to enter gwd.
70 range is needed to enter kree’s area, 75+ is recommended for the aviansie.
70 defence is needed to wear the torag, 75 to wear dfs. 80+ def is recommended to tank aviansie.
GEAR AND INVY
(the amulat is ARMADYL pendant. you can get it after completing “temple of ikov” quest. if you sided with lucien, go kill armadyl guards back where the staff is. if you sided with armadyl, just talk to them. the drop is common)
i kinda like this gear\invy…
here are some changes to the gear:
sara dhide + zammy bracers can be swap with zammy dhide and sara bracers. no stat changes, but it might be cheaper.
dfs can be swap with obby shield. DO NOT use crystal shield, it will degrade fast and you will lose valuable defence points.
if you can afford it, use rangers boots.
if you can afford it, swap the torag helm with armadyl, and the pendant with a fury.
you can use granite shield instead of an obby shield, seeing they got same stats and granite is cheaper.
you can also use excalibur’s special for some defence boost.
if you want, you can add mithril grapple to the inventory and enter armadyl’s area for more kc. good for busy hours. if you want to take the risk, enter the camp, wait till a team will show up (teams there 90% of the time), wait for them to kill ALL monsters, run in, recharge prayer, right click-teleport on the altar. can be risky if kree’arra decides to respawn while you are inside tho… inside the camp you can also kill spiritual warriors, they hit low and can drop rune hallies\kites (alch)
familiars are allowed in GWD, so why not using them?
If you got 16 summoning or lower, use a granite crab. his scrolls will give defence bonus (won’t stack with excalibur)
If you got 52 summoning or lower, use a terrorbird. feel her up with food.
If you got 67 summoning or lower, use a war tortoise. he is like a combination of a terrorbird (with more burden spots) and a granite crab (with more defence boost). feel him with food.
If you got 68 summoning and you don’t want to use a tortoise, a bunyip is pretty good here. he will heal you up 8hp per minute. peach heals 8hp. bunyip is like having an extra peach once a minute, without the use of an inventory spot! you should take a summoning potion and 1-2 extra bunyip pouches with you, since he won’t last forever
If you can summon a titan\hydra and wanna go offensive, bring a opuch and kill faster.
If you got 96 summoning, a yak is the best burden in the game (30 spots).
if you got 99 summoning, you really shouldn’t tank aviansie
HOW TO GET THERE
Cyan: Trollheim’s teleport.
Yellow: Games neckalce\combat bracelet teleport (games room\warriors guild)
Purple: PUT RANGE PROTECT ON HERE
use the agility shortcut (60 agility)
Brown: Wolfs here, melee protect is recommended.
WHERE TO KILL?
thats by far the BEST spawn, there are about 5 spawns here highest lvl is 83. in the western part you can attack aviansie that are being attacked by goraks as well.
well, besides ~30k range exp\hr, you also get many addy bars and runes. I will post my invy after 1 run once i’m out.
Thats all, enjoy!
Special thanks for johri on the excalibur and granite shield ideas.
