Anyway, it turns out the first 62 waves are cake. Which wasn't surprising, I guess, since there are hella safespots and I have overpowered prayers and I basically rip through guys of a comparable power level on any ordinary slayer task. It was really just a time sink--I hardly used any resources. I took Overload doses just to make it go faster.
So I got to Jad, right, piece of cake. But I died because I couldn't switch my prayers right. It's those new animations--he holds his feet up longer on the ranged attack now, and sometimes he does a fire breath thing too, so I got confused and mixed up the prayers and that was that. I say it's bull.
Well I had all these supplies left because the first 62 waves were so easy, so I figured may as well give it another go. This time I watched a YouTube video of someone fighting the new Jad so that I could practice the prayer switching. Ha! Went through the prologue, got to Jad, and switched my prayers just fine. Messed up a little luring the healers, but I recovered okay. But then I ran out of prayer because I hadn't been watching my prayer points. Whoops. Got hit, died. TzTok-Jad: 2. Troacctid: 0.
I started to go in for another try, but I checked my Polypore Staff and it turned out I was low on charges, so I ducked back out and called it a day. Oh well, no fire cape yet. Next time.
Afterwards, I checked the price of the Arcane Spirit Shield and noticed that it had majorly tanked and was like 30m lower than I remembered it being. Works for me! So I bought one for 40m. Probably should have done that beforehand.
