This guide is meant to help people who want to start tanking at Aviansies. For more information and more advanced tips please go to Aviansie section of God Wars Dungeon Guide.

 

 

What are Aviansies?

 

Aviansies are monsters that can be found in God Wars Dungeon and are Armadyl's followers. People kill them for increasing their Armadyl kill count so they can fight the Armadyl boss. They also kill them for the good income and range/hitpoints experience. Income mostly comes from noted Adamant Bars (4), which they drop. These creatures are non-aggressive towards you if you're wearing an Armadyl item (More on that later).

 

Getting Ready to Fight

 

So if you decided that you want to fight these monsters, it's time to get ready!

Don’t forget to complete the Troll Stronghold Quest or you can’t get to the dungeon.

 

Levels: 70 Range which is highly recommended

60 Strength or 60 Agility – To get past the boulder/crack - Required

70 Defence - Highly recommended

43+ Prayer if using way from Burthorpe - Needed for this way

61 Mage for Trollheim Teleport (Eadgar's Ruse Quest needed) - Recommended and needed for this way.

 

 

Equipment

zlsnd2.png

 

This equipment is recommended. It is suggested that you keep your range attack and defence bonuses around the numbers circled in blue.

 

Don’t forget climbing boots, unless you're using Trollheim Teleport. You need to climb rocks on your way to the dungeon from Burthorpe.

 

Ring of Wealth/Ring of Life – On your first trip it's better to bring a Ring of Life just in case, but a Ring of Wealth will increase your drop of rune items. This might be bad, because those rune drops might replace the adamant bars. Your choice.

 

Armadyl Pendant - If you don’t know what it is, then look at the necklace around my neck; it’s not a Pendant of Lucian! You will need this if you’re not wearing anything else from Armadyl. If you don't wear one the Aviansies will be aggressive towards you. To get it you have to complete the Temple of Ikov Quest. If you chose a good way, you should already have it. If you chose a bad way, go back to the room where you got the staff and kill Guardians of Armadyl until they drop a Pendant. This is also what you do if you lost yours.

 

Ava's Accumulator - You can replace it with a god cape for protection from certain gods followers, but this is recommended because it picks up your bolts.

 

Saradomin Vambraces - Not needed but highly recommended because sometimes a Saradomin follower may attack you. The slot could be replaced with Black Vambraces and you could wear another Saradomin item like chaps or d’hide. You could also replace these vambraces with Zamorak ones, but you'd also need Sara D'hide top.

 

Bolts - Broad-tipped bolts work the best; they are cheaper and better than mithril and sometimes better than adamant (Depending on range level and luck). You need 55 Slayer, and if you don't have 55 slayer, then use adamant bolts.

 

Guthan Helm – Could be replaced with a Torag Helm.

 

Torag Legs - If you wish to have less ranged defence and more ranged attack, than Torag Legs could be replaced with black d hide chaps. Most people pick this so they can eat less food.

 

Helm/D'hide/Chaps - This can be replaced with Armadyl armour, which gives you an advantage by giving you the option to wear a different kind of amulet and having a bigger range attack stat. When you pick this kind of equipment, you should check again if you still have Zamorak and Saradomin items equipped. You could also use a holy/unholy book or Zamorak or Saradomin braces, but they give even less range defence.

 

Zamorak D'hide - This is very expensive for people with little amount of money, but this will give you good stats with protection from Zamorak followers. You could replace it with Saradomin D'hide, but you will need Zamorak vambraces (Unless you use your own combo).

 

Summary - You can pick your own equipment, although items such as Ava's Accumulator are highly recommended. You need an item from every god except Bandos since you won't be going near his followers.

 

Inventory

NOTE:If it's your first time, you must bring a rope.

 

Food - Other food like sharks also work fine but since you don't get into extreme situations at aviansies, pineapple pizzas are the best because they heal 22 life in 2 bites for only 500-600gp.

 

Coins - It's always good to bring a couple of coins, because you will use that spot for money anyways. If you decide not to take any, leave that spot blank or replace it with a small fish like tuna.

 

Bones to Peaches Tabs - More on them later, but that’s what you need if you don’t want to bank and earn more money faster.

 

High Alching - You will need these if you want to spend the most time without banking. You could replace the lava staff shown in the picture with fire runes or a fire staff.

 

Mithril Grapple - Not needed, but is recommended if you’re not scared of bigger level aviansies and if you have 70+ range. It is less crowded at those spots which is the point of fighting higher levels.

 

Getting There

 

light.png

 

After you move the boulder/climb through the crack your running energy will drain and your stats will slowly be draining. Put protect from melee on and walk fast to the dungeon. If it’s your first time, quickly speak with the dying soldier near the dungeon and use your rope on the hole. GO INSIDE!

 

Inside the Dungeon

 

gwdmap1-1.png

(Thanks a lot to nonickname for this map)

 

Avianses are at the south part of the dungeon. After you walk in, walk to the south. There will be level 68+ aviansies there.

 

The black rectangle on the map is where you need to grapple pillar if you want to enter the higher level aviansies.

 

There are level 73+ aviansies in here. There usually aren't a lot of people here either, so there's always space for you. Pick one of the areas (A red circle on the map) and run around killing aviansies. It's better to pick just one area rather than running around the whole dungeon.

 

More on killing them

 

There is nothing special to know about killing them. The only important thing is never to let yourself have 11 hitpoints or less because 11 is their max hit. They also drop bones. If you lose 20 hitpoints (Example: your hitpoints is 80, and you have 58 or less) eat a pizza/shark and replace it with a bone they drop. You will never have to heal more then once per kill. If you heal right away when you lose hitpoints and when you have that kind of defence bonus, it will be almost impossible for you to die.

 

After you have no pizzas/sharks left and full inventory of bones use bones to peaches tab. One tab turns all bones into peaches. You could drop some of your stuff for a second, pick up some bones, and turn them all in peaches, eat the peaches, pick up your stuff and you just got extra hitpoints for the same cost.

 

untitled-5.png

 

It may sound like peaches are not good, but one peach gives 8 hitpoints which is enough for 1 aviansies kill.

 

Also, notice that there 4 law runes and 105 air runes that weren't there before. Aviansies will drop them, and I recommend you pick them up so you can have a Varrock teleport which you can use when you are done and ready to leave. This will get you to the Grand Exchange more quickly.

 

Rewards

 

They have a lot of good ones but here are the ones you want:

 

opwz8j.png - Rune limbs – Sold to Grand Exchange or High Alched for 9,600gp; Rare drop

 

2it1opx.gif - Rune dagger(p+) – High Alched for 4,800gp

 

107w9y9.gif - Adamant bar noted (4) – This is the main source of income, they drop them often and 4 at a time. It’s not rare at all. And it’s noted, letting you spend more time without banking. Price at GE - 2,325gp (March 07, 2009). To check for current price click here.

 

2agj8et.png - Sometimes they will drop 5 swordfish (Not noted); it’s a rare drop. If you get it, replace all the bones with this fish.

 

untitledss-1.png - Level 3 Clue Scrolls; value is unknown until you solve it. Great way of relaxing from aviansies and maybe earning some cash.

 

There are other drops like chaos, blood, and water runes, some nice herbs, and some other small/unimportant items. It’s your choice if you want to pick them up but they are not that popular to get at aviansies.

 

Interesting Facts

  • One of the most efficient locations to train range.
     
  • One of the most profitable monsters in RuneScape.
     
  • After dividing amount of money earned by amount of kills it ends up being 3,000 gp (3k) per Aviansie, unless you're unlucky.
     
  • If you are still having any doubts just try one trip, They really aren't as hard as they sound!
     
  • Please take note that these do become quite repetitive and therefore boring; This also proves that this monster is easy!
     
  • This is a tanking guide. There is also short summary of prayer guide and some other tips in Aviansie section of God Wars Dungeon Guide.
     
  • Just a reminder, you can't melee them and mage is too expensive, so range is the best choice.

Good Luck on Aviansie Hunting!

Lvls: At least 65 Range, 70 highly recommended - REQUIRED

43+ Prayer if using way from Buthorpe - REQUIRED

60 Strength – to move the boulder - REQUIRED

 

None of those are required. You could have 60 agility for boulder, and food for running past.

Firstly, this is in the wrong section. It should be in the "Guides in Progress" forum.

Also, where did you get the "Inside the Dungeon" map from? It looks like it is from another site - if it is, then it isn't allowed.

Apart from these slight mistakes, this is a good guide, and I hope to see you expand/spell and grammar check it. :wub:

Looks like a mod moved the topic, which is good. Also, nothing has happened with the map - so it should be ok. I think your main priority right now is to spell check the whole guide - loads of simple errors.

Take out every "I" bit. Gudies should not be in first person.

 

I would say one of the best places to train range

 

Should become:

One of the best places to train range

And stuff like that. Makes the guide a lot better.

I don't think this is going to be accepted because the precious aviansie slaying guide was closed because it's already covered in the GWD guide.

 

This topic was closed by Salmoneus on Oct 13 2008, 12:26 AM: Abandoned. Aviansie training is also covered in the GWD guide.

 

Btw you get rid of white stuff by making it transparent or cropping it (making it smaller so that the white isn't on the picture anymore).

How to make something transparent:

Again this is an addition to it, i dotn care if its not saparate from the GWD guide but i think is will be a good addition to that guide for lower lvl people.

You'd be correct - images shouldn't be taken from the KB.

 

 

Looking at the guide itself, there is basic information there although a lot that is missing and the current form is confusing, so would need uite a few improvements if it was to replace what is currently in the GWD guide (which is actually quite good).

I understand what your saying but can you be more spacific and tell me what to fix and how to fix it?

Images must be in png format, if they're transparent in gif so you need to retake a few images and they can't be taken from a site (not even the official). For the map you could ask nonickname to use his.

Another member made an anvansies guide. Sal declined it as it was already covered in the God Wars Dungeone Guide, which is actually quite good :wub:

Shocking... Usually the guides on this site are the equivalent of a random member stating random ways of doing random things... O wait....

People like me? What's that supposed to mean? I've been there with lower stats than that, except prayer, and higher than that too :wub:

 

 

You need to make your own map, or ask someone to. There's a guide at the top of this forum.

I made the Aviansie transparent :wub:

 

Remember to save in Png next time, not Jpeg, it makes the picture bad quality and takes longer time to make transparent.

Pineapple Pizzas are way better for aviansies, they cost way less, and heal you 2 more. It doesn't really matter that they are 2 click, you never get in tough situations at aviansies.

 

It may sound like peaches are noobs, but one peach gives 8 life which is enought for 1 aviansies kill.

Should be enough.

 

They will drop them, and I recommend to pick them up to get a varrock teleport you will use when you’re done and ready to leave.

You can just do Home Teleport aswell.

 

Aviansies are monsters that could be found in God Wars Dungeon and are Armadyls followers.

Should be Armadyl's.

 

They drop 5 swordfishes sometimes, it’s a rare drop. If you get it replace all the bones with this fish.

Should be swordfish.

 

One of the best monsters to earn money at in whole RunesCape.

Should be RuneScape.

Thanks for editing and i need some mroe help on it. Also they heal to more than what? sharks or peaches, because if peaches then how are you gonna make pineapple pizza in GWD?

 

You should take Pineapple pizzas in inventory to begin with, then start picking up bones and using tabs when you have bones in inventory.

 

Pineapple pizza heals 22 Health, and peaches 8.

 

Also i made transparent for you, which you could put me on the thanks to list..!
