Tzhaar-ket-om detail

An obsidian tank is a type of special build. They train their defence and strength levels extremely high and maintain one attack. They get the name "Obsidian Tank" from the fact they use the Tzhaar-ket-om in PVP to achieve high hits at low levels. They also have high defence usually (75 or higher) for the ability to use the Serpentine helm and the Dragonfire shield along with the Bandos chestplate and Bandos tassets. This builds combat level can range anywhere from mid 40s, all the way up to the mid 80s.


Where they trainEdit

Giant Rock Crab
Slayer's staff equipped
Training a obsidian pure is a pretty lengthy progress since they only have level one attack. They usually use weapons such as the Red topaz machete, a poisoned Bone dagger, the Event rpg, or the slayer staff. The Slayer Staff is the preferred weapon to use because is has the highest crush bonus and strength bonus, provides the fastest attack speed, and the highest damage per minute for any one attack weapon. This make this a ideal training weapon, because, it's crush based and rock crabs (arguably the best training spot for these accounts to train) are weak to crush based attacks. The downside to the slayer staff is the amount of time it takes to obtain. In order to wield it you need to have level 55 slayer along with level 50 magic.
