Super antifire[edit source]

Shouldn't this have been added to "Inputs", rather than the "Other benefits"/"Experience" section? The cost of making them should probably also be part of the gp/hour calculations, to be fully correct. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:49, June 18, 2013 (UTC)

Beast of burden[edit source]

I don't think it's possible to make 250 kills with the recomended war tortoise pouch. The gp/hour should be lower, or the recomended beast of burden should be a pack yak.

With the tortoise, you can only get 23 kills per trip, after that you have to spend at least a minute banking. I think 200 kills is the most you can get using a tortoise pouch, with high level gear. 200.198.220.27 19:42, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

Not possible to get 250 kills per hour with tortoise, please change to at most 200.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.245.140.242 (talk) on 04:04, April 9, 2014 (UTC).

This is correct, 250 kills is only doable with Porters and Yak banking bones. I did a bit of testing the other day. I'm maxed combat and was using Yak and Porter V (25 items). I could could kill around 25-25 black dragons within 6mins (1 dose of super antifire). this equates to roughly 250 kills/hr. I only used Super Antis, full Armadyl, dual CCBs at the Evil Chicken Lair. Unless the Porters are add to the guide, this method is not 250 kills/hr with just War tortoise. ~ Shoyrukon (talk) 16:46, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Done, thank you for the correction. Bluefire2Talk edit my sigOil4 I made this 16:49, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Realistically, lower levels should achieve around 20-25kills within that 1 dose of super anti. IF they are only using war tortoise, they can carry at most 22 kills within their inventory/BoB. This should mean roughly 220 kills/hr if you can kill 22 within 5mins, and take 1min for a bank run. ~ Shoyrukon (talk) 16:53, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Are you sure it's 220? Because if I change it again, I don't want to have to revert it. Bluefire2Talk edit my sigOil4 I made this 16:55, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
This is theoritical. 200 seems more reasonable and realistic. I was going off theoretical numbers based on my kills/expereience. Since this is for mid level players, 200 is more realistic. Like I said, unless someone can do better without Porters and only with a BoB; 220 is ONLY doable if you can kill 22 within 5mins, bank and return within 1 minute. ~ Shoyrukon (talk) 17:00, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Sure. I'm guessing not many people will be grinding them without any distractions. Bluefire2Talk edit my sigOil4 I made this 17:19, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
