guthan's versus other barrows armour What is better

Post by naphtaly on Tue May 26, 2015 6:24 pm

All the barrows armours have the same stats, Why is  guthan's considered better ?
Do you have to wear all the pieces?  When you slay, does it matter if  you use slayer helm?
It would help if someone explained this to me.

Okay, so each barrows set has unique abilities.

Guthans has a chance to heal you.
Veracs can hit through defence and prayer.
Dharoks allows you to hit much higher, the lower your health is.
Torags drains run energy.
Ahrims can drain strength.
Karils can drain agility.

The reason that Guthans is the most sought after is because of its healing ability. This can use less food per slayer task. It also allows you to AFK in Nightmare Zone for Six Hours, because the creatures don't hit hard enough and often enough, while Guthans keeps you healed.

Dharoks is used for strength training, or can be; because you hit so much higher (I've hit max so far of high 70s), you kill things quicker and it boosts your xp/hr.

Veracs is used for many bosses, because of their high defence, it can hit through it. Veracs skirt and Helm also have prayer bonus.

There are some differences between defence bonus I believe, such as Torags pieces (some of them) being slightly higher. But you can look at the actual stat differences on the OSRS Wiki, I won't list them all here.

In order to get their effects, yes you need to wear the full set. When you slay, say with Guthans, you need to wear the Helm/Body/Legs/Spear, but you can just slay with the Slayer Helm/Chest/Legs/Whip/Defender, and the switch into the Spear and Helm when you need to top off your health.

If you have any other questions, PM me and let me know Smile

Also, Ahrims is used by Pkers, since it's some of the best Mage Armor in the game.

Karils is used instead of Dhide, because it has better magic defence.
