Ice Barrage/blitz Training Gear

Question

I'm planning to train magic by barraging/blitzing monkey skeletons on ape atoll during the BXP

 

But I wasn't certain about gear

I have trained range there a few times already but I now remembered that my range gear also gives a prayer boost and that my mage gear doesn't...

 

So I was wondering what would be the best combo

 

at the moment I'm thinking about using the following

 

Gear:

Full ahrims

Staff of light

zammy prayer book

infinity boots

fury

barrows gloves

reverence aura

explorers ring

or getting a zammy stole and trimmed cape of achievement instead for extra prayer bonus

Prayer wise I'm thinking of just using deflect melee and nothing else

 

 

 

edit: no i don't have or want to go get any dungeoneering items or other untradeables but 100m cash is doable on stoof

I'd say use the first setup and switch your explorer's ring for a seer's ring.

You could buy an arcane spirit shield for 47M, you gain 15 mage bonus for the cost of 2 prayer.

3rd age mage hat or virtus mask? Small bonus I think. You could get a virtus mask+arcane for ~100M? (I know mask is 50M, not sure what arcane is at). But ehh, what you have is probably good enough.

 

I know you said no dung items, but, Tome of frost/ASN are really worth it though, you could knock out 30k tokens for ASN probably before 2x.

 

I've used leech defense a few times while maging metals, kinda speeds stuff up a tiny bit, dunno if it'd help for skeletons though, but, perhaps worth a try?

 

Also, if you want prayer, sw over skillcape

Wot about the erm... the Mystic Might aura thing?

I know thats 15% boost of magic on PvM...

BTW, why blitz? People like barrage/BURST because it does damage to everything within 3x3 area, blitz is only 1 person

Otherwise, I'd recommend zamorak stole and the mage cape, +10 magic bonus is a good bit, everything else looks good (except, tbh, you really should go for ASN).

confused burst with blitz it seems :P

and no I DON'T DO DUNG! :(

 

and I don't think that mystic might aura stacks with SOL which already gives that 15% bonus

The Mystic Might prayer should work, prayers aren't affected by Staff boosts. They're two separate buffing types, as far as I know.

They aren't, because I can get Eagle and void ranged in the same boost.
