Why clear Air God Dungeon?

According to the simulator:

  • If you want the full Armour set, then you need to clear the dungeon 91 times for 75% of that happening or 192 times for 95%.
  • If you want the full set and Stormsnap (item).svg Stormsnap, then it's 277 times for 75% and 576 times for 95%.

Gear to Idle

Due to the Combat Triangle, it's recommended to beat the Air God Dungeon with Combat.svg Melee because the enemies here are Ranged (skill).svg Ranged and Combat.svg Melee.

The following build can idle the dungeon with Hitpoints Level 90 (+30 HP from Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield for 930 HP total), and is suitable for Standard, Hardcore.svg Hardcore, and Adventure.png Adventure Game Modes. Check your own setup with the Combat Simulator or Can I Idle to be sure that you won't die.

Elite Amulet of Defence (item).svg Elite Amulet of Defence Neck 2%
Sandstorm Ring (item).svg Sandstorm Ring Ring 0%
Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield Off-hand 8%
Total 47%

It is heavily suggested to use the Sandstorm Ring (item).svg Sandstorm Ring because it boosts your clear time by 20%. Other rings don't come even relatively close.

If you have Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs (item).svg FEZ (3% DR) use it instead of the Elite Amulet of Defence (item).svg Elite Amulet of Defence (2% DR). If you don't have any of them, use Gold Sapphire Necklace (item).svg Gold Sapphire Necklace, but you really want at least Elite Amulet of Defence (item).svg Elite Defence to idle this dungeon.

Weapon choice

The simulation was done with the given build. All combat levels are equal to 85 aside from Hitpoints (skill).svg Hitpoints. No prayers, no potions, no any other buffs.

The intermediate steps can be checked with this spreadsheet. (link)

Weapon Adjusted clears per hour Buff compared to previous
Dragon Sword (item).svg Dragon Sword 0.91 0%
Dragon Claw (item).svg Dragon Claw 0.99 8%
Sunset Rapier (item).svg Sunset Rapier 1.1 9.5%
Ancient Claw (item).svg Ancient Claw 1.13 2.6%
Infernal Claw (item).svg Infernal Claw 1.19 5.1%

The usual food expenditure is 384 Whale (Perfect) (item).png Whale (Perfect) per hour.

You want to get at least the Ancient Claw (item).svg Ancient Claw because it is a good time to farm it after unlocking Ancient Magicks.

Ideally, you want to get 10 Infernal Core (item).png Infernal Cores from the Infernal Stronghold (dungeon).svg Infernal Stronghold and farm the Dragon Claw (item).svg Dragon Claw to make the Infernal Claw (item).svg Infernal Claw.
Check the Infernal Stronghold (dungeon).svg Infernal Stronghold/Guide to farm it most efficiently. You should be able to idle everything aside from Malcs, the Leader of Dragons (monster).svg Malcs.

Maximized Farming

The rest of this guide is NOT for your first clear, your average clear, or even your first 100 clears. This is purely to maximize scrolls for any missing items. This will assume 99 in all skills, access to nearly all weapons and items in the game, and access to all DR and HP pets. This assumes you are (unless otherwise noted) using an optimal Agility setup, are using your best dps prayers, your best summoning synergy, and are using Diamond Luck Potion IV (item).svg Diamond Luck Potions

Melee

This build is the simplest to accomplish, and what most players will lean towards.

This clocks in roughly 20-21 scrolls per hour, depending on if you have access to Shield of Melee Power (item).png Shield of Melee Power, and depending on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses

Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge, and/or Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs (item).svg FEZ paired with Fighter Amulet (item).svg Fighter Amulet in passive slot, may be slightly faster depending, again, on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses. This should be checked for yourself in Combat Sim

Magic

Standard Mode only, the Hardcore/Adventure combat triangle advantages make this build unusable.

This build uses Water Surge (spell).svg Water Surge or Water Wave (spell).svg Water Wave (reduced rune cost), Anguish III (curse).svg Anguish III, and Fury II (aurora).svg Fury II.

To use this method, you need to have 1090 HP and 48 DR. This is achieved by using Agility (skill).svg Rocky Waters instead of Agility (skill).svg Lake Swim. Any other method to get you to survive Aeris's stun is usable, but going to cost you more than 3% damage.

This clocks in around 26 scrolls per hour, depending slightly on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses
