Help needed: Defence reset guide

Recommended Posts

Defence Reset Guide

KbVQ1KN.png

 

I am attempting to write a guide listing all the effects associated with resetting your Defence to level 1 at nastroth.

So far I've already found 3 errors in RS Wiki's list - they don't have Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf, Nature Spirit, or Throne of Miscellania listed.

 

 

What I need help with:

 

Please brainstorm a list of ALL things that you think may be affected by resetting defence. There's no such thing as a stupid idea here. Anything that you remotely suspect may be affected by a defence reset should be listed so that I can test it.

 

If you are interested in giving further help beyond just listing ideas, pm me to ask what stuff there is to do.

 

 

 

Confirmed to be reset/destroyed:

As you mention that there is no stupid answers and people will overlook this no matter how obvious it is, Armors will be reset so no rune armor etc.

It could cause you to lose access to the Warriors guild, if your other stats aren't high enough.

Off-topic but it's interesting to see what lengths they went to in order to prevent people from abusing this.

 

This reminds me of the 1 magic Dragon Slayer account on Runescape Classic. On RSC, you need 31(?) magic for telekinetic grab to grab the map piece of the goblin. But on RS2 this was no longer necessary because you could buy the map piece for 10k. So people would convert their account to RS2, complete the quest with 1 magic by buying off the map piece from the goblin, and then convert their accounts back to RSC.

but any rune armour in your bank stays in your bank. It's not like you need a defence level to buy a tradable piece of armour. It seems too obvious to mention.

Warrior guild requires Att and Str. If you're thinking of combat level locked things like Smoking Kills quest, maybe that would be reset.
