Weakness to crush you say? Time to take this down with my fists! Goliath gloves ftw!
Can someone do the recommended armour thing? like this
Ganodermic visor > Full slayer helmet (just an example)
Ganodermic poncho > Pernix body
"Since there is a "no power-ups" handicap, weapons that are able to lower target defense will not work."
Is that above statement correct? I have been seeing guides telling players to use goliath gloves. Since it drains targets stats, so by the end of the fight Sunfreet will rarely hit you, and will have nearly no defense left. Again I have not tested this yet since I do not have access to rs right now. Can anyone confirm whether or not goliath are the best option?
Flying Attack[edit source]
When the Sunfreet is getting ready to fly up to do its fireball attack, it will look in a certain direction before taking off. The direction it looks at (N,S,E,or W) is where it will appear after the fireballs have stopped. Also, you should not run to where he will appear, as I am pretty sure if you are underneath where he lands, he will kill you instantly. It happened to me and he hit for over 800 damage, so I am pretty sure its an instant kill. This needs confirming though.Lord Drakan 02:16, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Ganodermic Tomfoolery[edit source]
Ive seen so many players attempt the hit-and-run tactic with ganodermic thinking it is better to only fail terribly. As long as you can get back into melee distance immediately after it lands you should be fine with torags (stab defense). Also since you are using goliath gloves, its stats are dropped significantly by the end of the fight so you will find that you are hitting nearly 100% of the time and it can rarely hit you (as long as you dodge the special attacks). Mage I do not believe is drained by the gloves so you get hit just as often, so its alot harder this way. Even if it is, which I am pretty sure it isnt. Mage seems to hit more often even when drained anyways. Just soem tips from someoen who did it, I mean im sure it is easily possible with ganodermic but it seems harder to pull off and takes alot more effort.
Just some tips!
"Once Sunfreet reaches 1/6 of its health, it will become berserk."
The strategy guide says that the monster has no weaknesses so any high leveled weapon will do. Later in the special attacks section it says it has strong defence against magic and ranges and weak agaisnt crush... Is this true? and if so why is it not also in the strategies section?05:49, January 3, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah that would be something that was carried over from Pre-EoC. I've removed that sentence entirely as it no longer applies. Feel free to use any combat style you want! Sir Veylantz (talk) 18:35, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
Ranged effectiveness[edit source]
Using a Royal crossbow, Royal bolts and Royal d'hide armour, I was killed pretty quickly, even with dodging all the fire rain attacks successfully. I got some good hits in, but Sunfreet seems to do roughly 1000 lp of magic damage with each hit even though I was in the full Royal d'hide set. I don't know if it's an oversight by the original writer or myself, but I don't see myself beating Sunfreet using the Royal outfit method as outlined in the article anytime soon. I'm rather hoping that I'm the one in error with this tactic, as ranged is my preferred attack style. 126.96.36.199 07:42, March 23, 2013 (UTC)
