Ice Giant/warrior Slaying Guide

Recommended Posts

This guide could be a bit bigger... It's crowded with revs the wilderness doesn't seem that bad and there are more locations where you can kill ice giants/warriors (chaos tunnels (members), white wolf mountain (also members) and maybe more).

I think Roy's right. Maybe Add "F2P" in the title, so that you don't have to add all the members areas. I mean, that would be impossible for you, seeing that you're F2P :aware:. I'd glady help you, so you should decide whether to keep it this long or add a few more locations.

Roy your a member. If you could just get some screenshots of you at some members places with Ice Giants/Warriors that would be great. (I'm not going to the wilderness! I GET SCARED :)

 

 

EDIT: But then again this guide was meant for medium level non-members but I guess adding a members area wouldn't hurt. I have never been to a members place with Ice Giants/Warriors so someone else would have to write it. If I WAS a member I would GLADLY WRITE IT :aware:

That's the one near White Wolf Mountain.

That's what it looks like when you're facing that.

 

I WILL get better pics. I swear :aware:.

 

EDIT: Got another picture. You need to mine the rocks to get to the Ice Warriors.

There were some spelling mistakes and the images at the wilderness are in jpg...

[center][b][size=4]Ice Giant Slaying[/size][/b]
Written By: Yankeeboy254
EXTRA Special Thanks To: Roy, Poke and Sp0rtsrule [/center]


[b]Ice Cavern[/b]
Ice warriors and giants are great NPC's to train on, especially if you are limited on cash. They can drop items such as armor (Up to Mithril!), law and other runes and gems. I wouldn't recommend going to the wilderness because it is a multi-combat zone. You can begin slaying ice monsters near Thurgo's house. 

[img=http://i26.tinypic.com/20koqie.png]


When slaying Ice Giants and Warriors, make sure that you wear any armor that's Adamant or better. Ice monsters can be dangerous if you are unprepared.

Warrior:
[img=http://i25.tinypic.com/1z4g5k9.png]

[b]What to Wear:[/b]
At least full adamant armor
Wear anything else you want that doesn't give a negative stat bonus. Fist of Guthix Gauntlets are recommended.

[b]Mage:[/b]
[img=http://i28.tinypic.com/9leczm.png]

[b]What to wear:[/b]
Magic Robes
Amulet of Magic
Fire Staff
Have about 1-2k air runes and half that body runes.

[b]Range:[/b]
[img=http://i27.tinypic.com/i1hc9u.png]

[b]What to Wear:[/b]
Studded Leather Armor (If you can wear it green dragonhide is also suggested.)
Any bow will do. Shortbow is recommended because it is faster
About 1.5-2k arrows; Iron is the recommended arrow.

These pictures are just for visual aid. You don't need to have the exact amounts; it's just to give you an idea.
Now your inventory should look something like this if your combat is about 60:

[img=http://i27.tinypic.com/118f287.gif]

This is what your inventory should look like if your combat is about 50

[img=http://i27.tinypic.com/5aric3.gif]

This is what your inventory should look like if your combat is below 50:

[img=http://i29.tinypic.com/2heexar.gif]


[b]Inventory:[/b]
Your inventory should only consist of food. These guys aren't too tough, so even if you are a member I wouldn't recommend bringing potions. This is just what I bring. You shouldn't even bring that much unless you are lower than their combat level.
If you have a lower combat level then you should have better food like lobsters. If your combat is over the ice warriors then tuna or Salmon should be okay. If you are lower than their combat level then you should bring lobsters or even swordfish. You don't even need to bring that much food, unless you are a lower level (Below their combat level). When doing this, your combat should be 40 at the bare minimum, but I would recommend at least 50 combat before trying this. The entrance to the cave should look like this. You may remember it from the [url="http://runescape.salmoneus.net/quests/KnightSword.html"]Knight's Sword Quest.[/url]. 

[img=http://i26.tinypic.com/15rcnki.png]

Run past the muggers and pirates and take the east route to the Ice Giants. There is a safe zone just past the hob-goblins and right before you see the Ice Warriors and Ice Giants! 

[img=http://i29.tinypic.com/2s84e93.png]

Make sure you are at full health and go teach those Ice Warriors and Ice Giants a lesson! If you are a lower level you would probably want to use 'Block' instead of training attack because they can hit pretty high! Ice Giants are actually a lower level than the Ice Warriors but they have a higher defense level. I would recommend starting with the Ice Warriors first, then trying the Ice Giants. The ice warriors may be easier because they have a lower defense level but they do have a higher attack level. If you are above 60 combat, you can go right to killing Ice Giants. If you are low on food just re-stock. It is okay if you have some food left over; you might die on the way back!
When you run out of food, go back the way you came and go to the [url="http://runescape.salmoneus.net/cities/falador.html"]Falador[/url] Bank to re-stock on food and store your treasure. 

[b]White Wolf Mountain[/b]
Okay now although this guide isn't exactly meant for members; it might get their attention. First go to Ice Mountain. There are Ice Warriors up there, but I would recommend going into the mountain itself. [b]WARNING! IF YOU ARE BELOW LEVEL 60 COMBAT THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED! TRY THE WILDERNESS OR ICE CAVERN![/b]

[img=http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff94/LIZARD1616/IceWarrior2.png]


[img=http://i27.tinypic.com/2my2m8n.png]

That is what it will look like; as you can see, Ice Warriors! 

You need to mine to get to the ice warriors below. This is what the rocks will look like; look above to see what kind of food and armor you should have!

[img=http://i28.tinypic.com/2lxaywj.png]

When you get inside white wolf mountain, there should be many ice warriors. The Ice warriors are vicious. Try and get them into a line, so you can attack them one by one, and avoid using precious food. 


[img=http://i25.tinypic.com/2u4pxe9.png]

[b]Wilderness[/b]
You can start by going to Bounty Hunter to re-stock food and get ready for battle. But watch out for revenants; they lurk outside of Bounty Hunter waiting for the right time to strike....


[img=http://i26.tinypic.com/31684yo.jpg]

When you do get to the Ice Warriors and giants, It looks like winter. If you are a member it will look similar to the entrance of the God Wars Dungeon. 


[img=http://i32.tinypic.com/153a5ns.jpg]


Your tactic should be the same you would use in the Ice Cavern, except it's a bit more dangerous around here, so make sure you watch out for passing revenants. It's recommended that you try and get in the middle of the area, and when you only have about 4 pieces of food left, go back for more! As you might need them if a revenant attacks you. When escaping head directly south. Watch out for revenants though, although it is unlikely you will encounter any. Although, you will want to run to bounty hunter and teleport from there, it is not recommended because there are revenants along that route. 

[img=http://i31.tinypic.com/2zofyv4.jpg]

Red Escape Route: This is the recommended route because there aren't any revenants.
Blue Escape Route: This is also good because you can cut through the Bandit Camp, but there might be a few revenants.
Green Escape Route: This isn't recommended, but it is faster. You can teleport from Bounty Hunter. Several revenants.


[img=http://i29.tinypic.com/f2pl3a.jpg]


You should end up near the mysterious ruins if you continued south, just above Goblin Village. Again, going to Bounty Hunter is not recommended, due to revenants. 

[img=http://i32.tinypic.com/1zp4obk.jpg]

[b]Fighting Tips:[/b] 
1. When you are fighting them, don't run away if they hit high on you. Just have some of your food and continue fighting. If they continually hit high on you, get better food, or your defense level/armor is not good enough. 
2. If you are on a member’s server, you don't need to pray. If you are a member your combat should be pretty high and you probably won't even need member armor. Remember, this guide is meant for medium-level non-members.
3. If you die, don't get your head down. Train on other monsters for now and get those levels up! 
4. They look pretty scary! But don't be intimidated - You have food and armor; they got a sword. 
5. Most importantly, don't give up. If you give up as soon as you kill one and are almost out of food, bring better food, get your levels up and eventually you will be training on lessers! 

Thanks for Reading!

I don't know how I could have done this guide without you guys! I got the Wilderness part and Ice Cavern, but you guys got the members part, and did all the spellcheck. But then again it is easier to spellcheck when it isn't your guide, because you like to think it is perfect :aware:

Ah so that's the problem, when uploading an image in that 24bits thing (bmp I think). Tinypic, imageshack, picoodle, ... converts it to jpg. change them from bmp to png, upload them and they'll look much better in the guide.

I know, it's not different :o. I forgot, I had already edited my first post, then I went out, then came back and made that post :wizard:.

I had a different map the first time. Good luck again :ph34r:.

 

EDIT: WAIIIIT! I found a few mistakes:

 

Blue Line - From Falador to White Wolf Mountain.

Red Line - From White Wolf Mountain to Cantherbury bank

Black Line - From White Wolf Mountain to Seer's Vilage bank. Not recommended because it is further than Cantherbury.

You spelled Catherby wrong, and you said From Falador to White Wolf Mountain, when it should be From White Wolf Mountain to Falador. Here:

 

 

Blue Line - From White Wolf Mountain to Falador

Red Line - From White Wolf Mountain to Catherby Bank

Black Line - From White Wolf Mountain to Seer's Village Bank (Not recommended because it is farther away than Catherby)

1. Don't wear (T) or (G) armour in pictures, it throws the reader off and could cause him/she to think these are better.

2. Green d'hide vambraces are fine instead of FOG gauntlets.

3. Lobsters are a much better than tuna

4. Add the option of taking a Strength potion(4).

5. Get a picture of a ranger wearing green d'hide... there's no point in trying to range if you can't wear it yet. Also add pictures of possible safespots.

6. Like Serendipity said, add a piece about the wilderness.

7. Taking a fire staff and a couple of nature runes is useful to alch any high-valued possible drops (make a list of these).
