Don't be concerned about the RS gold minerals. It can be a time-consuming process, and I believe, it's not worth the experience lost. Ugh. Hellhounds. I'd like to block them. Only useful in clue scrolls. Gold charms, that is... They can be fired, but.. I wouldn't block bloodvelds. They're fantastic and extremely fast. They do not drop, however.

I'm almost done with The Void Stares Back quest However, there's a single issue: The Pest Queen... I've tried four times, and so far this is a quick summary. Attempt 1: D platelegs, d'hide top, neitz helm, d def, korasi sword. Inv: 5 pray pots, rest rock tails. I got the Pest Queen halfway but before I was out of spec and was forced to port. Two attempts: Same armour. Inv: 5 pray pot, super str pot, ambush scrolls, spirit Kyatt, rocktails.
It was able to bring the Pest Queen down to half once more, however, I had difficulty using Kyatt, didn't seem to want to pounce when specified bar was clicked. Died due to lagg. Third attempt: D'hide legs/top with other armour of the buy OSRS GP same. Inv: 5 sara brews, 4 super restores, ambush scrolls, Kyatt.
