Old School RuneScape (OSRS) is renowned for its challenging bosses and thrilling encounters, and the Grotesque Guardians are no exception. These formidable foes reside atop the Slayer Tower and are known for their unique mechanics. For those seeking an adrenaline rush and the chance to reap valuable rewards, speed running the Grotesque Guardians can be an exhilarating endeavor. In this guide, we will delve into the strategies and techniques required to efficiently tackle this boss duo.
Gear and Inventory Setup
Begin by donning your best gear. Melee setups with strong defense and damage output are favored. Recommended items include Verac’s armor, Bandos gear, and a Dragon Warhammer. A Super Combat potion, Prayer potions, and Sharks should suffice for your inventory.
Executing the Speed Run
Now that you’re prepared, let’s dive into the actual speed running process
- Begin by attacking Dawn and flicking between Protect from Missiles and Protect from Melee as necessary. When Dawn takes flight, switch to Dusk and prepare for its special attack.
- As Dusk, stay grounded and continue the prayer flicking routine. When Dusk’s special attack animation begins, quickly click on the summoning obelisk to mitigate damage.
- The key to a successful speed run is efficient phase transitions. As soon as Dusk returns to the ground, switch back to Dawn. This rapid switching minimizes downtime.
- To achieve the best time, focus on optimizing your damage per second (DPS). Use special attacks and abilities strategically to maximize your damage output.
- Keep an eye on your Prayer and health levels. Conserve your resources to avoid running out during the fight.
