Do you remember when we had trains and had soul wars e.g.? It's too much of a race today. The only real discussion would be one on religion. This was subsequently dismissed by a mod once the discussion became emotional (if they had been there).
The people are so mean today. It seems like you have to be 99 to get respect. I use to get grats on any level. Today, I require at least a 90+. Also, I'm just mean to people who at a distance from me (which was not the case previously). A lot of people have become mean nowadays.
I'm very angry as I attempted to pay back the amount I was given(only time) but was kicked out of the room for it. The CC is now completely unfriendly without any human contact. You have this entire forum and yet you're not able to pick your moderators who will do their work. It's impossible to say what it really is however I can explain what it's like. The Numinous.
If you're at 90+ attack and strength, then melee could be the better option. Setup for ranged would however go around this... Equip yourself with the following items: Neitiznot (for prayers as well as defense bonus), any boots you'd like (ranger or snakeskin would have the greatest benefit they are followed by bandos or black for prayers),
Method - stand directly in front of them, protect the melee area and employ eagle-eye. They will hopefully melee most of the time but your d'hide / armour will take care of most of their magical strikes. The only damage you'll sustain mostly is their ranged attacks.
