General Graardor

This guide is mostly based on soloing Bandos, teamining is basically the same equipment, but you can stay there longer.

To get there, use a Games Necklance(8) (bought from Giles in Edgeville) Rub Games Necklace>Dungeon Teleports 2> Godwars Dungeon. At the teleport spot there will be a person named Bailey. Talk to him and a screen will come up showing all the GWD bosses (Bandos, Armadyl, Saradomin, Zamorak). Choose which GWD you would like to fight and he will teleport you to whichever god you picked. Run North until you hit a what looks like a stick on the minimap and then run left.

To enter you need a 5 kill count, but it is advisable to get at least 10 incase you die and need to come back. The fastest way to obtain this kill count is to kill Level 15 Goblins.


Heres the basic armor set-up you should have. This mostly depends on how rich you are and what you are willing to risk as there is a huge chance you will die. Keep in mind that you can exchange pieces of armor for others (I.E. Rune Platebody instead of a Proselyte Platebody)
