Corrupt Banker Guide
You can fight the Corrupt Banker with Melee or Range. The following Setups are ranked from least to most effective. The weapon is the most important as such if you dont have any of the following weapons: Blowpipe, Twisted Bow, or Scythe of Vitur then you should get one of the three then fight the Corrupt Banker. I only list the minimum and recommended. The Twisted Bow falls in the middle and obviously you can work with different gear for melee if you do not have samurai (barrows, magma helm etc.).
The boots, helm, and necklace do not matter as much so they are not listed. Most importantly have a.Blowpipe, Assembler, and karils or better with barrows gloves and a row (i). This is what I consider to be the minimum setup for the corrupt banker.
Fighting the Corrupt Banker is fairly straight forward. He only has 2 attacks: a melee attack if you are within ~4 squares of him, and an unblockable magic attack where he shoots 3 lightning bolts in a 3x3 area where you are standing at the time.
Note: It is HIGHLY recommended to use a double damage pot even in the best set up. he has very high hp and defenses and without it kills can take 3-6 minutes each.
If using Melee: Pray melee and attack Dodge his lightning bolts (reference below)
If using Range: Pray rigour/best + range pray you have and dodge his lightning bolts (reference below)
As you can see I got hit by the corrupt banker’s lightning attack. he shoots 3 bolts in a 3x3 square wherever you are standing at the time. It is unblockable and unless you move on his windup you will get hit. He uses this very quick, about every 3 seconds, but is easy to dodge if you have the know how.
Dodging the attack (GENERAL INFO)
Looking at the image the Corrupt Banker’s Windup in blue is easy to spot if you pay attention. As he does so take note of where you are standing (in red) and use the round and square tiles to figure out the 3x3 area his lightning bolts will target.
Then run one square outside the 3x3 square attack radius AS SOON as you see his windup. Then resume attacking. It is quite the process to do this over and over but as you fight him more it will get easier and easier.
simply repeat this dodging the whole fight until he is dead and hope you get lucky on the pet drop :)
NOTE: After killing him, he will respawn around 10 seconds later and IMMEDIATELY attack with a lightning attack so be prepared to dodge or take the damage.
