Guide for RuneScape – Combat progression: Boss list, weapons, and Armor

This is a brief combat progression guide I put together a while ago; the goal of the guide is to help out newcomers and veterans alike; I hope it proves useful πŸ™‚

 

Introduction

RuneScape - Combat progression: Boss list, weapons and armour guide - Introduction


You’ll find more information in the always useful RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Optimal_PvM_Perk_Setup from the Wiki the discordapp.com – https://discordapp.com/invite/6djqFVN two of the essential resources for all your PVM & Slayer needs.

I’ll start this guide with my “Boss Progression list,”Β but keep in mind it is always good to experience these bosses yourself and measuring how easily/efficiently you can kill them. The following are just guidelines πŸ™‚

For all my boss, I use a “Standard Revolution Bar” with a size of 6, Whilst also trying to maximize my DPS, as shown in the following video playlist.

“For more info about your revolution action bar, check the PVM Encyclopedia “DPM Section” about your combat style.”

It’s also important to note that, while using the revolution combat mode, it’s better to manually trigger your threshold abilities and properly cancel your channeled abilities (shown in this other example).

Gear and weapons (Melee)

RuneScape - Combat progression: Boss list, weapons and armour guide - Gear and weapons (Melee)


The following list is a recommended progression for your Melee gear; there are other kinds of armor like Runite, Orikalkum, Necronium, Banite, Etc. However, those are considered as “Tank Armour,” which only provide a defensive bonus instead of a damage bonus; for that end, RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Armour#Power helps you by dealing more damage, while RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Armour#Tank only increases your defense, but not the damage you deal with the bosses. Therefore, we’ll disregard tank armor for the rest of the guide.

Melee Armour

The following list is a recommended progression for your weapons; on this part, there are a few considerations to take note of; for instance, Melee has 2H Weapons and Dual Wield weapons, each with their own unique abilities; there’s also RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Shield that allow the use of Defensive Abilities, and RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Defender who allows the use of both defensive and offensive abilities, but, to keep things simple, we will focus on 2H and Dual Wield Weapons for each style.


Melee 2H Weapons

Melee Dual Wield Weapons

Gear and weapons (Ranged)


The following list is a recommended progression for your Ranged gear; similar to the Melee Armour section; we will disregard tank armor and focus on power armor. As a side note, you can also use shields for ranged and “defenders.” However, for this particular style, the defenders are known as RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Repriser instead, these also allow the use of defensive and offensive abilities.

Ranged Armour

The following list is a recommended progression for your weapons; on this part, there are a few considerations to note; for instance, Bows only use RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Arrows, and they cannot use any other type of ammo. Likewise, Crossbows and Dual Wield Crossbows only use RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Bolts, the only weapons that do not require ammunition, however, are the RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Chargebow_(bow_type)(like the Decimation, Zaryte Bow, and Seren God bow on this list).

Gear and weapons (Mage)


The following list is a recommended progression for your Mage gear; similar to the previous sections; we will disregard tank armor and focus on power armor. As a side note, you can also use shields for ranged and “defenders.” However, for this particular style, the defenders are known as RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Rebounder instead, these also allow the use of defensive and offensive abilities.

Mage Armour

img 5fab8fd0291b1 wpgameplay com


The following list is a recommended progression for your weapons; on this part, there are a few considerations to take note of; for instance, all spells need RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Runes to be cast from their respective RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Spellbook, the runes required vary depending on each of the spell being cast.

Final preparations and setup

I’ll list the bosses below from “easiest to hardest,”Β with their respective video guide and wiki article. Assuming you’re using at least Barrows Armour, Tier 80 Weapons, and the appropriate protection potions like:

img 5fab8fea31694 wpgameplay com

Or, if you have access to them

RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Elder_overload_salve#(6)
RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Spiritual_prayer_potion#(6)
RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Adrenaline_renewal_potion#(4)(like Protect from Melee, Ranged, Mage) or RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Ancient_Curses(like Deflect Melee, Ranged, Mage, Soul Split). Additionally, you could also bring a familiar like the following ones:

img 5fab8ff1aae98 wpgameplay com

img 5fab8ff7216de wpgameplay com

And, if you have access to it, Invention Perks also help out a lot. Runescape .wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Optimal_PvM_Perk_Setup#Entry%20weapon%20perks should do just fine until you can afford Best in Slot perks.

  • Additional notes:

This post’s unlisted bosses require you to be inside a team/group to kill, so I’ll skip those for the time being. As you get progressively better, your encounters should become faster and more consistent, but don’t forget always to be ready for everything like Disconnections, lag spikes, misplaced abilities, forgotten gear/runes/weapons, but most importantly, do not panic and always be wary of your limits. For that end, a RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Ring_of_death is always a life-saver; for the aforementioned reasons, so buy one when you have the opportunity.

Finally, make sure you have unlocked the RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/War%27s_Retreat_Teleport,as this is the place you want to visit to prepare for the upcoming fights.

All bosses listed above can net you some good uniques and expensive loot; from a simple RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Armadyl_crossbow to a RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Mutated_Barge_ability_codex, of course, group bosses can give you even more expensive loot (RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Nex:_Angel_of_Death, RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Solak, RuneScape.wiki – https://runescape.wiki/w/Vorago). Still, assuming you’re killing bosses outside a group (Solo), these are some of the best bosses, in my opinion and personal experience, for good money.

Bosses by profit

In no particular order and varying in difficulty, we have:

Boss nameProfitability
Queen Black Dragonβ˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†
Vindicta & Gorvekβ˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

QBD is in here because she gives you excellent resources (Rocktails, Sara Brews), she’s very easy to kill (even on mobile), and really fun.
