A Defence Pure maintains a low Combat level and has high Defence. Most Defence pures train at monks or seagulls depending on whether they want to AFK or gain fast experience. When player-killing, other players have a large window of opportunity to escape from a Defence pure due to their weak attacks. Other players also find it difficult to kill Defence pures due to their ability to tank hits. Defence pures excel at staking but most players know not to stake them. They are usually created for vanity.
Additional sources of damage for Defence pures are poisoned daggers, such as the iron and bone daggers, and the Dragonfire shield. The poison deals six damage every 15 seconds, and the Dragonfire shield special attack deals up to 25 damage and can be used every two minutes.
It is recommended to use an Event rpg for early defence levels as it is the fastest attacking melee weapon in the entire game. Use this coupled with the recommended Amulet of strength for maximum strength bonus. Buy (if possible) and equip any other items (such as the pricey Berserker ring) to increase strength bonus, many of these items require quite a few levels beforehand. For an early setup, the Maple blackjack (d) will give you a +20 Strength bonus with the only requirement being 30 Thieving and 30 Defence.
Types of Defence PuresEdit
The Gadderhammer Defence Pure deals the most damage. It can be used in more training areas than the usual monks and seagulls. The pure is five combat levels above a standard Defence Pure because the quests required raise your Attack and Strength levels to 6 and your Prayer level to 15.
The Dwarven helmet from the quest Grim Tales gives a +6 bonus to crush. The quest requires you to have 45 Farming, 52 Herblore, 58 Thieving (boostable), 59 Agility, 71 Woodcutting (boostable), and you must have completed Witch's House.
