Why Clear Water 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 Cloudburst Staff (item).svg Cloudburst Staff, then it's 277 times for 75% and 576 times for 95%.

Gear

Due to the Combat Triangle, it is recommended to beat the Water God Dungeon with Ranged (skill).svg Ranged style, since enemies use Magic (skill).svg Magic and Combat.svg Melee.

Check your own setup with Can I Idle or Combat Simulator to see if you meet the Hitpoints (skill).svg HP requirements.

Ring of Wealth (item).png Ring of Wealth or Aorpheat's Signet Ring (item).svg Aorpheat's Signet Ring are preferred for the chance of double loot, but you can use Silver Diamond Ring (item).svg Silver Diamond Ring for 1% DR if necessary.

If you have Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs (item).svg FEZ then use it, but it's not mandatory to have it.

Because later monsters in the dungeon are quite evasive, Ancient Crossbow (item).svg Ancient Crossbow boosts the clear time by a significant amount because it lowers the enemy's evasion until the end of the fight.

Scaled Shield (item).png Scaled Shield is important because the poison damages in percentage, meaning that Glacia (monster).svg Glacia will suffer. A lot.
With Scaled Shield (item).png Scaled Shield, you will clear the dungeon at least 10% faster when compared to its unupgraded version, (U) Ancient D-hide Shield (item).svg (U) Ancient D-hide Shield.

Use Emerald Bolts (item).svg Emerald Bolts to save your Diamond (item).svg Diamonds for Diamond Luck Potion IV (item).svg Diamond Luck Potion IV.

You'd want to get prayer points, ideally by Blessed Offering (spell).svg Blessed Offering, and use the top two prayers for accuracy or max hit, depending on your situation. Check with Combat Simulator to see which is better for your clear time.

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

Ranged

Cape of Prat (item).svg Cape of Prat is marginally faster than Maximum Skillcape (item).svg Maximum Skillcape, but as it more than doubles your ammo expenditure, it is not recommended.

This clocks in around 19 to 21 scrolls per hour, depending slightly on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses

Consumables:

Magic

This build uses Fire Surge (spell).svg Fire Surge, Anguish III (curse).svg Anguish III, and Surge II (aurora).svg Surge II.

To use this method, you need to have 1090 HP and 57 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 Glacia's damage is usable, but going to cost you more than 3% damage.

This clocks in around 19 to 21 scrolls per hour, depending on your access to Shield of Magic Power (item).png Shield of Magic Power, and depending slightly on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses. Worth noting that it will take longer overall to run this build, as the time to create all of the necessary runes will likely take longer than the time to collect the bolts. This build also requires the Power Shield to be able to survive and keep up in dps. Therefore, it is a fair bit less effective overall than the ranged counterpart.
