Obby shield has become obsolete now. Ha, get it? OBsolete. :D

 

 

 

But, yeah, go with a dragon defender.

Dragon Defender hands down.

 

 

Definitely go with a dragon defender

 

 

Why? does the attack bonuses even out the low defence stats?

 

 

The attack bonus is huge and the defence is alright I guess, considering it isn't too far behind the obby shield

The obsidian shield only beats the dragon defender by an average of 15 in meelee defence stats. The dragon defender beats the obsidian shield by an average of 25 in the meelee attack stats and an extra strength bonus. The dragon defender always beats it in training combat, and training slayer. But, if you want to be a very high defence person, then try to get full torag's with abby whip and an obsidian shield. That's probably the most cost efficient armor for people who want defence stats over 300.

Dragon Defender for sure.

 

Also i'd try to get Barrows Gloves and probably a helmet of neitiznot. Barrows armour would also be much better than rune.

Dragonfire Shield > Obby Shield and generally Dragon Defender is considered better than Dfs, so it definitely beats Obby Shield.

Dragon Defender provides a slightly higher strength bonus, and a lot of accuracy (offensive) bonus (along with some decent, yet lower defence). Obby shield is lower strengh, no offensive, and mainly defensive stats.

 

Generally the accuracy far outweighs the defence.
