Kebos lowlands update hit OSRS, and as predicted, the alchemical hydra boss has very high magic level and okay range defense = twisted bow meta. Price jumped by almost 100m from before release, and scythe dropped in price, so the two ultimate weapons are now almost equally priced! > )

On the other hand, dragon hunter crossbow dipped by about 50m since it wasn't as good.

I figured that meta means most effective tactic available! Cheers!

Have you tried the new boss and did you get anything good?

Did 30 kills yesterday, got nothing special yet though. :P

It's similar to Zulrah, where you constantly move around the arena and switch prayers, and its drop table seems similar to Zulrah's too (we don't have drop rates yet but the rare drops would seem to be 1/512 like with Zulrah, excluding pet of course). It requires more concentration than Zulrah and Vorkath though, and it sucks that you have to use the new mid-tier slayer master to be able to get a task for it and so be able to kill it. I was lucky to get it as my second task, it's roughly 4% chance to be assigned with no block list.

EDIT: Well I guess I got lucky:



It's only worth ~3.7m as an individual piece though, assuming that the ring it's used to make with (https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Brimstone_ring) has roughly stabilized in its price. In comparison, hydra's leather is worth 16m and is used to make new BiS melee gloves that surpass previous BiS barrows gloves, and hydra's claw is worth 80m, which is used to make dragon hunter lance (with zamorakian hasta).

I see how it is Jagex...



The price of the ring has started dropping again, at the time I'm typing this those pieces are now worth ~3.4m each. I guess Jagex's ultimate plan is to troll me by giving me 2/3 of the pieces needed and then deny the last part, so that I can only watch the price drop whilst desperately trying to get the last piece. > )

Is it possible to get duplicate pieces before getting all three? That would be the troll plan.

No, you always get a new piece.

And the ring is now bouncing between 8m and 10m... people found out that the ring's magic defense reduction proc stacked and it could be used to drain the target's magic level down to pretty much zero without any extra effort. Then Jagex hotfixed it so that the proc only works for the attack that it procs on, rather than permanently reducing the magic level, so now the ring is back to being mostly useless for the time being. :P

Heh, ironmen are very grateful to Zamorak now though, because it's easier to obtain the lance on your own and it's more efficient for them to use dragon hunter lance than crossbow. > )

This guy... what the actual ****?



Getting 2 pets in the first task would already be insane, and that's just the cherry on top here... Time to make conspiracy theories about Jagex & favoritism, it's too unreal! > )
