The Fire Cape is one of the most sought after items in Old School RuneScape. To get this coveted cape, players must defeat the legendary boss Jad. Before taking on this task, you must collect OSRS gold to pass the levels necessary to defeat the rising waves of enemies.
Reaching the Fight Caves
Venom and waves of enemies await you in the Tz-Haar battle caves. The area you need to reach is Karamja, which you can reach with the charged Amulet of Glory. From here you can rub to teleport to the desired area.
After reaching this place, you can turn left to find the volcano. There you will find a rope that goes down, so take it down to reach the depths of the volcano. Once you find the entrance to the cave you can head west until you reach the bank that serves as the entrance to Fight Caves.
Items, stats and equipment
Remember that before going to Fight Caves you need to prepare properly. Make sure you have at least 70 ranged and at least 45 prayers and defenses before starting this task. Since you have a high level of distance for this, you need to pack at least two ranged potions. I'd also recommend having around 20 Super-Restore drinks. Saradomin is steaming and even Purple Sweets can come in handy too.
The equipment you bring depends on the level your character has reached. It also depends on how much OSRS Gold you have earned at that point in the game. The most effective method is to use the best shield possible to adjust the level of defense. As mentioned earlier, you should be wearing the Amulet of Glory. If you want to upgrade your ranged skills even further, I recommend Amulet of Ranging. Your range can also be increased by equipping ranged armor, if available.
Earlier, we also mentioned where the prayer level should be. You can get prayer bonuses with Dragonhide, especially from Blessed Dragon Hide. This is because it provides a prayer bonus by slowing down the rate at which you lose prayer points. Finally, your favorite weapon should be the Rune Crossbow. This weapon can be very effective when combined with a Diamond or Ruby Bullet.
The Battle Against Jad
When you break through several waves of enemies, you'll have a chance to face Venom. This boss has a deadly mix of magic and ranged attacks that can be devastating if you're not careful. Fortunately, there are some tips you can pay attention to to avoid the full burden of such attacks. Make sure you don't hear the crackle as it means Venom is going to use a ranged attack. If you hear a more sweeping sound, Jad prepares a magical attack.
There are also visual cues that you should pay attention to. When he leans back, Jad intends to use a ranged attack. Adjust your defense strategy accordingly. As for Magic, Jad will tilt his head back before he shoots a giant fireball at you. As with distance, you'll want to switch to protect yourself from magic.
Unfortunately, Jad has healers to help. Adjust your tactics to eliminate his healers as well. This can be done by closing them behind you so that they are focused on your player and not by healing Jad himself. Be sure to monitor your health and consume drinks when needed. With this method, you can get rid of Venom quickly!
Cape of fire
The Fire Cape itself is a melee item that will be your reward for defeating Jad and Fight Caves. You can sacrifice it to TzHaar-Ket-Keh if you want to access Inferno. You can also hang it on a cape hanger in the Player Achievement Gallery.
If you prefer to sell the cape, you can do so at TzHaar-Mej-Jal. This gives the player the choice between getting the Jad pet or the 8,000 Tokkul pet. Warning: If you decide to sell the cape, you will have to defeat Jad again in order to get another one.
Follow this short guide and you'll be safely given your first fire cape. Just make sure you collect enough OSRS Gold to reach the levels necessary to beat Jad. Be careful not to underestimate Fight Caves in any way - or Jad herself. Thanks to the tactics mentioned above, you should defeat Jad quite easily. Good luck and enjoy your first Fire Cape!
