Well everyone i should be a mem by either tomarrow or tuesday. I found a good  money making thing that i like to do. So i was wondering should I buy Full dragon armor or One of the barrows sets, or what should I use?
My combat lvl is 84
70-hp
70-att
70-str
62-def but willing to train if need for barrows.

So my real question is what armor do you think is the best, if I have the money to spend? :aware:

barrows:
-cheaper
-better stats

Dragon is really too expensive to have much use besides just looking good

Barrows is better than dragon the only thing is you have to pay to fix it everytime it degrades to 0. Dragon doesn't degrade, but prices are dropping, and isn't as good.


Go for barrows.

Technically... Its barrows all the way. But I'm pro-dragon! Death to the RS melee status quo!

It depends on how much money you have and what you're planning on killing.

barrows is better

Costs me around 200k +/- a few 10's of thousands, since I gained a few smithing levels. Just use at a POH with an armour repair stand. I am also not sure if assiting someone works, since my friends was assiting me, and he had 90 or so smithing. Also, the guthans paltebody is the same as torags, the legs are only 10 def points weaker then torags too.

Are you freaking serious? :aware:

Like everyone else, I think Barrows is way better than Dragon since it's way cheaper and the stats are overall better.

I find dragon better, because I think it is easier to deal with, no degrading no worrying plus, I think it's more well known plus I don't have to think about each separate one. Though i could argue pros and cons for each side.

Don't talk to me unless your willing to have injuries and bruises that will remain with you for the rest of your life!!! Actually you know what talk to me I feel like hurting someone!!!

Yes
3a is ftw :aware:
Unless you have loads of xash dragon is a waste, with that 8m or so you could but a ton of decent stuff
Barrows, well I have never really liked it Bad colours :), IMO fighter torso, rune legs with neit and other is way better then barowsm even if you can't get torso then granite works well and its less thn barrows

barrows all the way home mate
-cheaper

-cooler
-Guthan the Infested or Verac the Defiled for melee (Dhorak is okay), the others aren't worth it

barrows cost 330k to repair if it is totally degraded
bob the axe seller in lumby is the closest repair man
