1.0 [ Introduction ]

Posted Image

While The Bandos Stronghold is arguably the easiest Godwars section, It still requires skill, and decent stats.
Coming in at the 4th highest attackable NPC in RuneScape, General Graardor is a formidable foe. Many dare not to face the level 624 Ourg alone,
instead preferring to take him on in teams of 3-6+ members. This method makes it easier, but you get a smaller split of the rewards.
This guide will hopefully give enough information to consider taking on the General by yourself and let you reap the high rewards from killing the
last of the Ourgs.

======================


2.0 [ Gear And Requirements ]

While the Requirements are extremely low (70 strength and a hammer), you will not be able to pull off a successful solo attempt without decent stats.
Recommendations:
-80+ Attack & Strength (if Meleeing)
-70+ Defence (Barrows/Bandos is a MUST!)
-85+ Hp (Graardor maxes 350 with Ranged, and his minions 200. Always stay above 600 lp.)
-85+ Ranged (if Ranging)
-70+ Magic
-60+ Prayer
-Access to Trollheim teleport*
-Decent equipment

These stats should hopefully get you at least one kill, I do not recommend trying to solo with stats below these.
You do not have to have 70+ magic, but it is advised, as the majority of the damage you take will be from Sargent Steelwill, the Magic
bodyguard.

*Don't bother trying to solo Graardor without being able to teleport to Trollheim.

~~~Inventory~~~

For those without overloads:
    1x 1-click teleport
    1x Hammer
    3-4x Super Prayer / Prayer Potion(4)
    1x Extreme Attack / Super attack(4)
    1x Extreme Strength / Super Strength(4)
    1x Extreme Defence / Super Defence(4)

Dragon Claws advised as spec-weapon.

Fill the rest of your inventory with Sharks or better food.
I have been using Rocktails lately. They work wonders here.
You can also swap the Super def pot for a Saradomin Brew, but remember to take a Super Restore as well.

    1x 1-click teleport
    1x Hammer
    3-4x Overload (4)
    12-14x Saradomin brew (4)
    7-8x Super restore (4)

    2x Fire Rune
    2x Law Rune
Dragon Claws advised as spec-weapon.

Summon the highest level Beast of burden you can (Terrorbird, War Tortoise or Pack Yak recommended), and fill its inventory with Sharks or better food for non overloaders, Saradomin brews for overloaders.

2.2 [ Ranged Setup ]

~~~Equipment~~~

    Helmet: Pernix > Armadyl > Verac's > Torag's > Archer's Helm > Neitiznot
    Amulet: Fury > Glory > Ranging > Unholy Symbol
    Chest: Pernix >Armadyl > Karil's > Black Dragonhide
    Legs: Pernix > Torva > Verac's > Karil's > Black Dragonhide
    Boots: Ranger > Dragon > Snakeskin > Bandos
    Ring: Wealth > Life > Archer
    Weapon: Chaotic Crossbow > Rune Crossbow
    Shield: Divine > Elysian > Dragonfire > Spectral > Crystal Shield/Blessed Spirit shield > Spirit Shield > Obsidian
    Cape: Soul Wars Cape > Ava's Accumulator > Fire Cape > God Cape (mage arena) > God Cloak (Treasure Trail) > Skill cape (t) > Skill Cape > Obsidian > Legends
    Gloves: Barrows > Black D'hide
    Bolts: Dragon(e) > Diamond(e) > Ruby(e)
    Spec Weapon: Dragon Claws > Saradomin Godsword > Zamorak Godsword > Bandos Godsword > Armadyl Godsword > Dragon Halberd > Dragon Dagger (p++)
Maybe bring some cheaper bolts, or a melee weapon for the kill count.
A Zamorak Godsword can freeze Graardor for up to 25 seconds. This will give you time to take a couple of steps away, heal up and attack again.

If you do not wear any Bandos Items, I strongly suggest using the Bandos Pool at Ooglog

Personally, I take a zamorak arrow for kill count, and use claws to kill goblins/hobgoblins.

======================



3.0 [ Getting There and the Kill Count ]


Teleport to Trollheim, drop 2 food, teleport back to Varrock, go to the bank and withdraw 3 food, then teleport back to Trollheim once
more and pick your food back up. From there, follow the map below.

[Image blocked; please upload it at an approved host.]

Protect From Range along the red line and Protect from Melee along the green.
Once your inside the Godwars Dungeon, run north past the hobgoblins, to the small goblins (levels 3-14), and kill them to get your 40 kill count.
If you don't have a Zamorak Item, follow the red line, and kill hobgoblins there.

[Image blocked; please upload it at an approved host.]

When you have the 40 kills required, follow the blue line into the Bandos Stronghold (make sure you have a hammer, otherwise you will not be able
to get past the door). Once you are in, run to the door that leads into General Graardor's Chamber, but DO NOT go in yet.

[Image blocked; please upload it at an approved host.]





======================



4.0 [ Killing General Graardor ]

Now comes the fun bit. Are you ready to take on General Graardor and his 3 mighty minions?


4.1 [ Killing Graardor with Melee ]

Once you are at the door, sip a dose of your super set. Set your quick prayers to;
~Protect from melee,
~Protect Item,
~Piety/Chivalry

Or if you are on Ancient Curses;
~Deflect melee
~Protect Item
~Berserker (If not using overloads)
~Leech Attack/Defence (both recomended)
or
~Turmoil

Also take auto-retaliate OFF! (This will save you having to run back to Graardor all the time)

Activate your quick prayers, and enter the chamber.
From here on, it gets hard. Attack General Graardor, using the Special Attack(s) up first, but only if you are using an AGS or BGS. Should you be using a SGS, use the Special Attacks up when your hitpoints go below 600, and your prayer drops below 40.
If you used a BGS, the spec should hopefully have lowered the General's defence, allowing you to hit harder, and more often.

Try to keep your lifepoints above 600 at ALL times. Graardor's Max hit with range is 35, and it either hits high, or doesn't hit at all. You can quite easily be dealt a 350 from Graardor,
and a 200 from either one of 3 minions, which often leads to death, and the loss of items. Remember to keep your prayer up at all times.
REMEMBER TO ATTACK GRAARDOR EVERY TIME YOU EAT.
Seeing as Auto-retaliate is off, you need to click on Graardor every time you eat/drink a potion, otherwise you will just stand there, being pummeled
by the General.
Also, If you are using Whip/DFS setup, dont forget that you can use the Dragonfire Shield's special attack. It can deal an extra 200-250 damage, and may help you finish Graardor off that little bit faster.
But remember, this isn't an ordinary special attack, you sacrifice a small portion of the shields' defensive stats to deal damage. Use it wisely.

[Image blocked; please upload it at an approved host.]

Once Graardor is dead, pick up the drop, and either;
A)Stay and kill the 3 minions, starting with Steelwill (Magic), then Grimspike (Range) and lastly Strongstack (Melee).
Pray Protect (deflect) from Magic until Steelwill is history, then switch to Protect (deflect) from Ranged while you kill Grimspike and Melee afterward. I highly suggest leaving Protect (deflect) from melee on if you are staying for another kill.
If you have enough food for another kill, use the altar, then activate your boost and protect item prayers and get ready.

B) Teleport out to a safe spot, preferably your house (you don't lose any items on death there).




4.2 [ Killing Graardor with Ranged ]

Range is quite similar to Melee, when killing General Graardor.
Drink a dose of Super Defence, and Ranging Potion once at the chamber door, set your quick prayers to;
~Protect from melee,
~Protect Item,
~Eagle Eye


Or if you are on Ancient Curses;
~Deflect melee
~Protect Item
~Berserker (If not using overload)
~Leech Defence
~Leech Range

Again, take auto-retaliate OFF!
Activate your quick prayers, equip your best bolts, enter the chamber and attack General Graardor. Dragon Bolts(e), with a high ranged level will take Graardor down unbelievably quick. The special attack (which occurs randomly) can deal very high damage on
the General! Once again, try to keep your HP above 600 (Graardor doesn't care if you safe), and your prayers on at all times.

Should you be using a DFS, dont forget that you can use its special attack, which can deal an extra 200-250 damage and may help you finish Graardor off that little bit faster.
But remember, this isn't an ordinary special attack, you sacrifice a small portion of the shields' defensive stats to deal damage. Use it wisely.

Again,
REMEMBER TO ATTACK GRAARDOR EVERY TIME YOU EAT.
You don't want to just stand there, getting hammered by those gigantic fists do you?

[Image blocked; please upload it at an approved host.]

When Graardor dies, pick up the drop, and either;
A)Stay and kill the 3 minions, starting with Steelwill (Magic), then Grimspike (Range) and lastly Strongstack (Melee).
Pray Protect from Magic until Steelwill is history, then switch to Protect from Ranged while you kill Grimspike and Melee afterward. I highly suggest leaving Protect from melee on if you are staying for another kill.
If you have enough food for another kill, use the altar, then activate your boost and protect item prayers and get ready.

B) Teleport out to a safe spot, preferably your house (you don't lose any items on death there)



======================


4.3 [ Magic at Bandos ]

Certain magic spells can work wonders while soloing Bandos. Vengeance and Ice barrage are the most commonly used spells, and are extremely useful.

Freezing Graardor with Ice Barrage helps a great deal when ranging Graardor. The spell, which comes from the Ancient Magicks spell book, can deal up to 300 damage on General Graardor, as well as freezing him for up to 20 seconds.
While this may not seem like much, it is enough to get a couple of decent hits in on him.
It requires 94 magic, Ancient Magicks spell book (Desert Treasure completed), 4 death runes, 2 blood runes and 6 water runes per cast.
Also, instead of using Ice Barrage, you can use a Zamorak Godsword. This has the same effect as Ice Barrage, yet it can deal higher damage.

Vengeance is by far the better spell to against Graardor. The spell comes from the Lunar Magicks and will deal 75% of the damage dealt to you in one hit.
Whilst it can only be used once ever 30 seconds, it has the potential to hit mid 20's on Graardor if used correctly, just before he attacks with ranged.
If you get the timing right, you will deal back 75% of Graardors' ranged attack every time you use the spell. Get the timing wrong, and you will deal lower damage on one of the minions.
It also requires 94 magic, Lunar Spells (Lunar Diplomacy AND Dream Mentor completed), 4 astral, 10 earth and 2 death runes.


======================



5.0 [ Rewards ]

The main 3 Rewards you come here to solo for are;
~Bandos Hilt (1/150)
~Bandos Chestplate (1/80)
~Bandos Tassets (1/70)
These items vary in price from 13-25mil, and are highly unstable on the
market. If you do get one of these items as a drop, I suggest waiting for the item to peak before selling.

======================



6.0 [ Frequently Asked Questions ]

Q: Why Solo Bandos?

A: So you can get a Hilt, Chestplate or Tassets and wont have to split it, of course! Free 20m anyone?


Q: How many kills per trip do you get?

A: Myself? I get 2-3 (with 86 attack, 85 Strength, 85 Defence), but it is possible to get 7+ if you are maxed, and 10+ if using the best possible armor + weapons (this includes ancient PvP warriors' armor)


Q: What are the drop rates for Bandos?

A: Hilt: 1/150
Chestplate: 1/80
Tassets: 1/70
Boots: 1/70

Keep in mind these are AVERAGES. You are highly unlikely to get one hilt per 150 kills. You might get 0, you might get 4. This is an average drop rate.

Q: Ring of Life or Ring of Wealth?

A: I prefer to take a Ring of Wealth. It (apparently) increases the rate of valuable items. Hilt, Chestplate and Tassets are considered to be valuable, therefore it should increase the drop rate of these items.
If you do not wish to lose your items (upwards of 4m with the Verac's/Karil's setup), wear a ring of life. Be reminded that ring of life may not always work, especially if you get K.Oed (I've been hit 34-18-22 (74dmg in total) stacking together, which K.oed me, for a loss of 4m).

8.0 [ Last Words ]

If you plan on going to solo General Graardor, dont steal someone else's world. There are plenty of non-lootshare worlds to solo in, no
need to resort to stealing other peoples. If you are the victim of being crashed by some stuck-up noob, by all means, leach off them (damage
the minions to just under half hp while the other person is attacking Graardor).

Also, don't think just because you have the recommended stats, that you will be guaranteed a kill every time you go. Sometimes you'll have a fast
kill, and be able to do several more, or sometimes you might get hammered by the range attack (believe me, when he does it 10+ times in
a row, you'll use tones of food) and not even get 1 kill.

And lastly, DON'T blame me if you die and lose any items here. Its your choice to go, and the responsibility of those items is on you.

Thanks for reading my guide!

found an error:
in section 2.0 you say that sargent strongstack uses magic, while at the ends of 4.1 and 4.2 you say that strongstack uses melee

also: should you protect pray against his minions after graardor is dead?

Some corrections are needed here. You neglect mage defence too much here.

Nezzy is not better than V helm, with about 30 less def bonus, just for its +3 str.
Fury is far better than a god stole. You trade attack, defence, and str bonuses for 5 more pray.
Ring of life is as a precaution, and ring of wealth should should only be used if soloing.
Bgs will only allow you to spec once, which is not ideal if you have multiple kills.
Sgs is possibly better than Ags.
In no case would I ever use defender. Negative range def, and with a whip, you need all the def you can get.
You forget about god cloaks for pray bonus, and god capes for mage def.

Sara brews can take the place of def pots. Just drink a dose of brew, then super restore, then super att, super str.
They also help prolong runs, as they are food. Heal up between kills using them in the method described below.
They reduce your att/str/ranged/mage however, so super restore after drinking them, then pot back up.

Equipment
Helmet: Veracs > Neitiznot > Torag
Amulet: Fury > Glory > God Stole > Unholy/holy symbol
Chest: Karil top > Black d'hide body
Legs: Bandos Tassets > Verac Skirt > Torag/Dh legs
Boots: Dragon/Infinity Boots > Climbing Boots
Ring: Berserker Ring > Ring of Wealth(only if soloing)/Ring of Life/Explorer Ring
Weapon: Sgs > Ags > Bgs > Zgs > Whip & D Mace
Shield: Dragonfire > Obsidian
Cape: Fire Cape > Skillcape (t) > God Cloak > God Cape (Mage arena)
Gloves: Barrows > Other RFD gloves

Inventory:
-Hammer
-1 click teleport (ectophial, teleport tab; home teleport/lumbridge recommended)
-1 Super attack(4)
-1 Super strength(4)
-2 Saradomin brews(4)
-2 Super restores(4)
-20 Sharks

Tbird inv:
12 Sharks

Tortoise inv:
18 Sharks

Yak inv:
2 Saradomin brews(4)
2 Super restores(4)
26 Sharks

For Minions:
Pray Magic the whole time.
Kill in this order: Ranger, Meleer, Mager.
When the mage is almost dead (don't finish him!), heal up with Sara brews, drink a dose of super restore, and pot up again.
When Graardor respawns, finish off the mage so you don't have to deal with him for the rest of the kill.

Recommended Stats:
80+ Attack & Strength (if Meleeing)
70+ Defence Barrows/Bandos is a MUST
85+ Hp Graardor maxes 35 with Ranged, and his minions 20. Always stay above 60 hp.
85+ Ranged (if Ranging)
70+ Magic
60+ Prayer

I get at least 2 kills a trip with these stats:
83 atk 95 str 75 def 87 hp 87 magic 64 pray

Thanks Shurukins, ill do some more experimenting today, with your setup.
The reason i have a god stole in there is for protection against the zamorak minions, so you can get the kill count more efficiently.
Also, you say ring of wealth is only good for soloing, well we are soloing here aren't we? ^_^
Should your method world well with me, I'll place it in the guide asap.

Thanks everyone for your inputs.
I aspire to make this guide as good and complete as possible, so dont be afraid to post any tips you might have. They have a good chance of getting into the guide, and your name on the shiny credits section :ph34r:

Shurukins covered most of the errors I found but there are a few other things (some of which he was wrong about) that I'd like to mention. Simplest way to explain is just to say what I do. I've found a very good setup to be: Verac's helm, Zamorak Dragonhide body, Amulet of Fury, Bandos Tassets, Dragon boots, "Barrows" RFD Gloves, and Saradomin Godsword (I've used an Armadyl Godsword some and they are about the same performance wise there). I take one super attack (4) one super strength (4) one saradomin brew (4) and one super restore (4) and pot in the order of brew -> restore -> super attack -> super strength. The rest of my inventory is sharks, hammer and teletab. Then I take a yak full of sharks. I get 4-6 kills per trip doing this easily.

Lol, it's not so hard as long as you stay calm and focused.
Summoning? If it's 52/67/97(lol) then take a tbird/tortoise/yak.
You should be fine, as long as you have decent gear.

Also, Kicky, I wouldn't take armadyl since it has negative melee attack.

One of the pictures you took looks like this:

Also I dont think that a person that goes there first time should bring wealth.
Id say DEFFINTLY NOT, Not until you get experience.
Its not worth dieng in there, So Ring of life until your experienced when your sure you are ready to risk what you got, bring a ring of wealth[row]
I never tryed solo bandos but il deffintly will thank to your guide.
Good job.

Chestplate 1/80
Tassets 1/70
Hilt 1/150

Add those odds up, every 30 runs you get one of those.
I don't know drop rate for GS blade shards tho.

I seriously doubt anyone would take your range setup. You are risking full armadyl. That is, unless they feel fine risking 30m+. On top of that, your range defense is small and you won't last very long.

I've been there with full Armadyl, and it works great.
The gear is in order of best to worst. You dont HAVE to follow my guide word for word, its a guide.

Well I was thinking about going while ranging, and I can't afford full armydal so I was looking at the other options and noticed that you wearing snakeskin boots, while it doesn't have that on you list.

Just a lil more def.

Thanks for pointing these out, I'll update with the next major upgrade, which hopefully will include the Minion's drops, and the usefulness of Lunar Magics.
