Thanks Timmy. Unfortunately my only real combat stat is magic so it is what I have been using.

I just got a t80 weapon and am using t75 armor, my stats are also low to mid level so those may contribute to why I have been struggling.
Definitely will be studying the mechanics more and looking into improving my action bar.

Magic honestly isn't bad either, you just have a bit slower kills. Also, if you're using Ganodermic armor for mage, swap it for Subjugation. Although Gano is 5 lvls higher it's classified as tank gear and doesn't give you any DPS bonus while Subjugation does. You miss out on defensive bonuses but because QBD's main damage isn't affected by it like I mentioned earlier, it's more beneficial to take the DPS increase to speed up kills; in turn lowering the amount of damage you take overall as well.

Another thing I forgot to mention is the fire wall and cursed souls can be dodged by walking properly. It's much easier to understand when you see it done, but because Runescape is on a tick system it essentially means that you can avoid damage from environmental things like the things I mentioned by stepping through/over them as they leave the square you're stepping onto. Essentially you're walking through them without them actually hitting you. Youtube probably has a ton of guides for this mechanic specifically on QBD because it's the most common place to do it.

I have a slight mix of subjugation and ganodermic, might end up splurging for the full subjugation set. I have been practicing the fire wall and the tortured souls dodges, hopefully I wont have to die too many more times before I get it down.

I've been playing OSRS on my phone when I can't sleep. Something about chopping willow logs and banking them on repeat gets me pretty drowsy hahaha

I'm telling you, I feel like it could be marketed as a sleep aid.

Its exactly like it was on the PC. Not a total battery killer, so it performs fine. Clicking can be a little less precise, but overall it's really well done.
