Way to the godwars dungeon and killcount spots

How to get to the godwars dungeon and killcount

1 kc spot
2 kc spot (one of the best)
3 kc spot
4 here u will need ur hammer
5 bandos room


Switch off auto attack
Drink your stat boosting potions. If you have an overload, then use food to get back to undamaged hp
Switch on prayers
Normal prayer: piety, item protect, and melee protect
Ancient prayers: Turmoil, item protect, melee protect
Go in and attack the Bandos boss
After finishing the Bandos boss, kill first the ranger, then the magician and in the end, the meeler. Use split soul prayer if needed in order to heal yourself
EXTRA: Should you get a good drop, then use the pack yak’s winter storage scroll in order to teleport this to your bank and have it safely there.

Good Drops of Bandos

Bandos pl8
Bandos tassets
Bandos hilt
Bandos boots
Ancient effigies
Level 3 and 4 clue scrolls
Godsword shards

In case you die

Always think in advance what you need in case you die. With a 15 minutes grave, it should be no problem to get your stuff back. Otherwise, your friends can bless your grave (if you are not doing solo bandos). THE KILLCOUNT HAS TO BE REDONE!!!
I would take 6 prayer potions with me, the best stats boosting potions so the killcount takes up less time, a Varrock tele tab, a summoning monster, which can hold more items like food or a fighting summon monster, which will help to get the killcount faster. Of course, you shouldn’t forget your food and the hammer in your inventory. At the godwars dungeon, drink all your potions to get your 40 kills faster and activate piety prayer or turmoil to get the kills even faster. Then go to bandos’ room, get your stuff back and then you can either use your teleport tab or continue killing him.

Tips and Tricks

Switch your prayers on auto prayer.
Summoning monster should be on auto-click.
Have several hammers on your bank, in case you die.
Alternatives to your plate body can also be a black d’hide, virtus top, or karil’s top.
Zamorack arrows count as a Zamorack item.
Also in the lower setups, flask pots are very advisable.
If you are killing bandos in a team, then you should pay attention to your summoning familiar. Should your summon monster attack bandos, then the bandos boss will stop attacking the tanker and attack you (the master of the summon monster) instead. This can be very deathly, because you have range protect on and no meele protect and the bandos boss can hit over 600!
