if you dont kill minions its just more kills and a longer trip because of less prayer and stams. Zerks can just use blowpipe,sgs and b2p tabs. you will heal more then enough. I am a tank but I only bring 1 brew in case of dcing or some shit. I also only bring guthans and b2p tabs. can last around 7 hours 3 man
Not really sure what some of what you're saying is. Hopefully I understand the majority of it. The not killing minions is a bad idea, that's more food used and the zerker (If applicable) will be hit harder when hitting zilyana, while he's on the minion he doesn't get attacked at all. I also don't understand how that's a longer trip. Berserker pures using sgs and B2P won't suffice the healing if they aren't attacking minions, assuming a 25 sgs hit and 2 bones per rotation that's only 41hp. The ranger alone will hit more than that and you have to assume the melee hits sometimes as well.
A single brew as a tank, I can see that working. However, guthans has a ton of weight to it and although that's fine in a trio, you won't do very well like that in a duo and I know this from experience so that's a no-go. You might last 7 hours in a 3 man, but that's a threeman I'm talking about duoing.
You might think a trio will get a lot more kills but they won't. Majority of the time we're both hitting the boss, whereas in a trio I assume you're doing the southwall method so one guy isn't hitting the boss so it's always two people attacking for either of our methods.
Durability also isn't an issue, I use a mule outside so we can last 48 hours if we really want, although that isn't practical.
They got fixed the wall method a long time ago. Trio everyone is always hitting. You are spending 30 secs on the minion when the boss could be half health.
