    Money Making: In Order of Difficulty and combat levels.

    High Level combat:
    -God Wars Dungeon is another massive cash collector for some players who do not like PVP as much as others. The beasts within the Godwars can hit tremendously high, but if you know the tricks to beat them in a team or possibly by yourself you can obtain great wealth from this.

    High Level combat:
    -Corporal Beast is a good way to make cash, but is risky. Most players choose to "3 item" which is often good because if you die with an expensive item, you will not get a grave for it. The Spirit Sigils they drop are one of the most expensive items you can buy that are a drop currently.

    High Level to Low Level combat:
    -Currently at the moment Player Vs Player is one of the top money makers. The one bad side, if you die A LOT you will lose money. But you can get a statue that you trade for 5 million GP!

    Any Level:
    -Resource Skilling has been a good way to make cash for ages since Runescape has come about =o. If you don't have the skillers you can't make anything at all really that everyone uses unless it is a monster drop of course. You would have no food, no potions, or practically anything you make and use! Currently Runecrafting is the best skill to do usually

    Any Level:
    -Although it is recommended to be higher level up with this, you can do what I call "spawn camping" which is waiting for an item to spawn and then you collect that item, when you get a full inventory you bank it all . Do this repeatedly and depending on what item you can possibly make millions in a few hours.

    ~~~Combat Skills~~~

    ~Melees (attack/strength/defence)~

    *F2P: For the first few levels, train on something weak like seagulls to 40 attack and 30 strength to get access to a rune scim and half-decent damage. Then work on getting defence up to 20ish as well for mith. Move on to flesh crawlers in the second floor of the stronghold of security, move onto giant spiders once your stats are half decent (60-70+), stay there to 99. Strength pots are recommended.

    P2P: Rock crabs. experiments, or yaks until your melees are 60ish. Get a d scim and either stay there longer or start slaying. Get 70 attack and a whip, and continue slaying to 99 (using saradomin sword or d scim for strength exp, godswords suck). Other training methods include pest control (up to 75k/hour, wouldn't use before the 90s and only for hp), dharoking apes or undeads with 1hp (up to 110k-120k/hour with apes, more with undeads due to salve), training on undeads with salve (e) and whip (up to 110k/hour), or just sticking to a single grind monster (varies, 60k-80k/hour in most cases). Also, bandits suck. It'd recommended to use super sets and either 10% strength prayer or piety for faster exp. Bunyips are also amazing if you can summon them.

    ~Ranged~

    *F2P: Chickens, seagulls, or whatever until you get through the first 20-30 levels. Move onto ghosts and zombies in Varrock sewer from there to 40ish, switch over to guards or white knights to about 50-55, head over to ice giants and warriors from there (get warriors stuck on corners and giants on walls), and move to lesser demons at around 70. Stay there to 99. Addy arrows are recommended if you can afford them, but mith or lower work too.

    P2P: There's lots of options here. The most popular seems to be bronze knives with void range on yaks until 99. Higher level things like black demons are doable at 70+ as well. Pest control remains an option, being quite fast. Cannoning to 70ish (on dagannoths) and using red chinchompas to 99 (3x3 area damage up to 9 monsters, use on monkey skeletons or mummies) is the fastest (albeit the most expensive). Slaying is fairly effective as well, since a lot of tasks allow you to wear void and others can be tanked. Personally, I recommend voiding on everything you possibly can though since it gives you a huge bonus (10% accuracy and defence) at the cost of some defence. The biggest tip I can give here is to get to learn monster movements. Get large monsters stuck on every object possible and small ones on corners of walls or other objects. Range over any object you can hide behind. See this little vid here for a bit of inspiration to the extent of which you can safespot (please ignore the music, and yes I realize the text stays there a little too long, skip through it if you have to):


    Also, it's recommended to use range pots and 10 or 15% range prayer.


    F2P: Whatever to 19, splash curse to 55 (-65 or lower magic bonus via a full armour set and green vambs with an earth staff), alch or superheat to 99. If you can't afford that, continue to curse. Fist of Guthix is also a decent free way to train magic, but I recommend splashing with your strongest combat spell if you're doing that so that you can get more exp per game. If your opponent is running/hiding, just quit and fight the next guy.

    P2P: More options here, a lot will involve watching prices of items for profits/losses. Alching remains an option, as does superheating, but there's a little more to go along with it. Pest control can be used while enchanting bolts (though if you're in a clan you'll get banned, and people will hate you no matter where you are) for a good bit of bonus exp/hour. Ice burst and barrage are similar to ranging's chinchompas (3x3 area damage, up to 9 monsters) and give TONS of exp... For a lot of money. Enchanting in the mage training area also gives a nice chunk of experience from what I've heard. Humidify, plank make, etc on the lunar spellbook can also be looked at for getting some quick/cheap exp.

    Familiarsation tips (members only)

    First Tip. Join the chat Obelisk Chat, they will help you find a world usually

    Second Tip.
    If the first tip is unsuccessful try looking at the forums by searching "Obelisk on...." or something along those lines

    Third Tip. If you have done the quest As a First Resort (may be wrong on it but w/e) use the salt-water spring to give you INFINITE RUN! in game, make sure you found the obelisk you wish to go to first though.

    Fourth Tip. Well this is pretty obvious but GO AROUND your enemies not through them because then they can hit anywhere from 1-6 times on you =o.

    Fifth Tip. Use your points on the triple charm drops then go to waterfiends if you are high enough level. if you are low combat however of course your going to get the summoning ingredients.

    Moneymaking tips for F2P

    Woodcutting
    This is pretty simple.
    You buy an axe, you find a tree and you get a log boom! magic =o
    This skill can be trained almost anywhere in Runescape!
    However, I would refer back to a skill training guide to help you with this.
    F2P can cut yews behind Varrock castle which is East of the Grand Exchange which enabled you to make quick banking. You can also go to the 3 yew trees south of falador. doing yews you can make anywhere from 60k-100k per hour.

    Fishing Lobsters
    Lobsters, you can sell them cooked or raw.
    You need at least level 40 fishing for lobsters.
    You can make anywhere from 60k-80k cash an hour saying that you can get atleast 200 lobbies an hour.

    Making Steel Bars
    This is pretty simple, find a furnace and smelt 2 coal and 1 iron together to make a bar. you will get about 60k-100k profit per hour. best furnace on f2p to use is falador and bank at west bank.

    Mining
    You can pretty much mine anything from clay at the varrock southwest mines, you can also do iron ores, coal, mithril, adamantite and even runite. of course it will be a little slower but i suggest doing coal and mithril in the mining guild at 60 mining for money making. you can average about 100k+ an hour doing this.

    Mining Essence
    This is a little different from mining because it include much more banking. Mining Rune essence can be used to make runes, the best probably being the main elemental runes (water earth air and fire) because you can usually make multiple runes using the Runecrafting Skill.

    Moneymaking Tips for P2P

    Mining Concentrated Gold
    For this you need 80 mining or higher, it is recommended to buy a dragon pickaxe for this will pay itself off fairly quickly. you can make about 400k per hour or more depending how attentive you are to your inventory filling up so fast =p.

    Making Nature Runes
    Probably the best form of money you can get, up to 2.2M per hour usually.
    Although getting the big amounts of money per hour are at 91+ Runecrafting (double natures) you can still make about 1M per hour if you are in between the levels of 43 (base level to make a nature rune) and 91 (double). I find myself making about 1M per hour at 80 runecrafting. It is Best to Kyatt these or go through the abyss

    Cleaning Herbs/Making Unfinished Potions
    Doing this requires you to have trained the Herblore skill a little. today it is harder to find an herb that is grimy to clean it and find it that it sells better. but you can almost always add a clean herb to a vial of water to make profit. usually the best herb to do this to make unfinished potions with is either Snapdragons, Ranarrs, or Toadflax. you can make anywhere from 100k-2m per hour doing this depending on the herb you do.

    Farming Herbs
    Pretty Damn Straight forward on what it says, you plant a seed in an herb patch and boom! herbs. try to avoid farming snapdragons, ranarrs, and other high priced herb seeds unless they were a drop. Usually you want to farm toadflax or spirit weed. You will get herblore exp (if you have the herb level to clean it) and farming exp from farming herbs and cleaning them off. There are a total of 5 herb patches, 1 requires a quest. you have to do my arm's big adventure to gain access to this. and Eadgar's ruse is recommended for teleporting to trollheim. Per trip you can make about 250k in 5 minutes or less.

    Spinning Flax
    Probably the first thing somebody will do when they play runescape to make cash other than resource skilling. Most people go to seers village to do this because you can pick the flax and then spin it into bowstring. some people just buy the flax on the grand exchange and spin it, which works equally well. THIS IS HIGHLY recommended for low level crafters.

    - Making money using runecrafting : this works for boh f2p and p2p providing you use rune essence. At level 38 crafting water runes gives a small profit per essense (can be done at level 19 but there is a chance of market price lowering and causing a loss of money or just bad luck, see tip below). the same can be done with earth runes at level 52 (or 26 if the market is good).

    - Cheaper than the G.E. : Many items are cheaper in npc shops than they are in the grand exchange. Alternatively many shops will buy items for higher than the grand exchange. its always worth checking before you buy or sell

    - Multiple rune crafting : you can actually craft more runes than you'd expect to craft at an alter. this is due to an update in runecrafting that means you have a chance of crafting 1 extra run per essence depending upon how close you are to the next level of being able to craft multiple runes.

    - Close enough: if you don't quite meet the requirements in a skill for an activity you can boost the stat using potion or various bevarage, this doesn't work for everything but is useful, especially on dungeoneering doors.

    - Burning Food:
    After a certain level when making a food it will never become burnt no matter what kind of fire you cook it on. this is not true for all food as there non-burning level would exceed 99, however with the cooking gauntlets the non-burning level of fish from tuna to rocktail is reduced to an attainable level (max is level 95 on rocktail).

    Quick Cash for Noobs (New Players)

    Picking Flax and Turning it into bowstring-MEMBERS
    Go to Seer's Village and pick flax south of the bank. Go Northwest and climb a ladder into a house after you have a full inventory of flax. Use the spinning wheel to turn flax into bowstring.

    Mort Myre Fungi-MEMBERS
    This cash method requires that you either use someone's kharyll teleport in their house/your house. It also requires that you have done Nature Spirit quest and have a silver sickle (b). You go into the swamp and "Cast Bloom" areas with 2 or more logs surrounding you.
    [][][]
    []X[]
    [][][]
    There is a quick "diagram" of what I mean.

    White Berries-MEMBERS
    This cash method requires that you have a teleport crystal to lleyta and a decent agility level to navigate around lletya. In Isafdar, north-west of the mining area and west of Lletya, the berries respawn every 4–5 seconds.

    Woodcutting-MEM/NONMEM
    For members I suggest that you cut yews/mage trees which can be located at gnome stronghold(yew+mage), south of seer's village (yew), southwest of seers village(yew, further sw is mages). For non members I suggest 3 trees south of falador wall. Please note woodcutting these may require a lot of banking. You can also use tree patches on a member's server and regrow them with a hydra familiar's scroll special

    Fishing-MEM/NONMEM
    members pretty much look up where you fish these. main place is catherby for a few that or living rock caverns. Sharks, Lobsters, Swordfish, Tuna, Rocktails. On nonmembers it is recommended that you go to karamja and fish swordfish, tuna, and/or lobsters. On nonmem this might not be the fastest cash ever due to the banking speed, but it can be some of the better-off experience.

    Quick cash tips (f2p):

    - Planks spawn in the wilderness, graveyard of shadows. its extremely close to a bank so a good way to make money but it is mildly dangerous.

    - From explorer ring 2, you get 30 low alchs, this gives magic xp and doesn't use runes and due to its low requirements its very easy to get. if you upgrade it to explorer ring 4 later you also get an an addition 15 high alcs (and 27 superheats if your interested in magic xp)

    - if you find you are always low on money you should try only focusing on 1 skill. for example, if you use the fish you fished for cooking you will find you make less money than if you sold them straight away.

    - if you get good at minigames in runescape you can usually find that there is a reward that can be sold at a high price on the grand exchange, for example the beserker shield in the fist of guthix minigame.

    - collecting resources yourself cost you nothing and gives you xp in another skill. 90% of the time this is more cost effective than buying off another player.

    Runescape: Dungeoneering Guide part:1 How to get started

    Basic Dungeoneering Guide Part:1 (getting started)


    hello guys today ive got a dung guide for you all, as you probably all know by now if you have been playing runescape for a bit when dung came out it wasnt realy taken into rs that well but hopefully this guide will help you understand it a bit :)

    Part:1
    Starting Dung for the first time:

    When you want to start dung for time you will need to get to a place called daemonheim.

    Picture of daemonhiem.

    [​IMG]


    When you get to this place, make your way to the middle and talk to the dungeoneering tutor who will give you a "ring of kinship", after you have this you can get started :)

    Ring of Kinship.

    [​IMG]


    Part:2
    Getting a Team and starting a party.

    When you have your ring start buy right clicking it and clicking open party interface, or if you are being invited by another player you will see the opion in your trade box so make sure you have trade on! when dunging for the first time you will need to do complex 1-6 which will go up automaticly unlike when you do the floors again on for example you will stay on that complex.. but carrying on when you do these for the first time you will get bonus xp.

    Party interface.

    [​IMG]

    Sizes, floors and prestiage.

    when you go to go to do a floors you will get these settings

    1st you will be asked for what complex you want
    2nd you will be asked your floors
    3rd the size (small,med,large)

    when doing large or mediums it isnt advised you do for example f1 large complex 6 because you will get rubish exp.

    Now im going to talk to you about the reason people hate dung so much in your party interface you will see at the bottom a button which says reset, you only click this after doing all the floors you can thats all im going to say simple and so useful because once you have done a floor dont go it again because you will not get prestiage for that floor which means you will get rubish exp.

    Floor plan:
    when you do dungeoneering it is adviced from me you only do large floors for floors 28+ for f2p and floors 30+ and higher if wanted for p2p, now im going to show you a simple plan for floors members and f2p



    This is considering you have 69+ dungeoneering level.

    p2p

    1-29 complex 1 5:5 if wanted

    30+ Large 5:5 complex 6 or you can do whatever you want even for you last 7 floors


    f2p

    1-19 small complex 6 5:5
    20-27 or 28 medium complex 6 5:5
    28 or 29- 35

    you can also do floors 1-28 small complex 1 if you want aswell but this isnt advised in f2p because dungeoneering is alot harder because of weapons and teams.

    Well guys this is it for part:1 join me next time for bosses and pres.. for dungs.

    ------------------------------------------

    Overview on floors:

    Floors 1-11 frozen

    Floors 12-17 abandoned 1

    Floors 18- 29 furnished

    Floors 30-35 abandoned 2

    Floors 36- 47 occult (p2p)

    Floors 48- 60 warped (p2p)

    MM Since I am 85 dung I could recommend a better strategy for P2P Leveling

    When Lower level dungeoneering (below 80s)
    I recommend you do this:

    Duo floors 1-25 small on Complexity 6
    (solo if you must, but i recommend duoing or you will get bored extremely fast...)
    Floors 26+ you want to large 5:5 on Complexity 6.

    When you get higher levels (80+)
    you may want to use the following methods:
    Complexity 1 small Solo Floors 1-10
    Floors 11-30 small Duo Complexity 6
    Floors 31+ Large 5:5 Complexity 6


    Now...depending on the size and levels of your group, you may want to adjust how often you do larges since they can be deadly ;o.

    As you get even higher level (Dungeoneering 100+)
    You will probably only want to large floors 37-40+

    Larges are very time consuming but provide the most experience! Finding a team that will stay even through death is difficult so bear with the deaths. One death may take anywhere from 7%-15% your experience!

    Effigy Obtaining Guide (138 cave crawlers)

    This Guide is only for levels with high combat aswell as summoning, also this will cost about 1m+ an hour and is only advisted to do with a good flow of cash. I will release for guides in the future were you can make money but with a lower effigy rate. Hope You Enjoy :)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Time per effigy: 1:00 Hour
    Kill Rate: 600-700/Hour (cannon Only)
    Estimated Drop Rate: 1/650

    The Cave Crawlers you will be killing are located in the Pollinivineach slayer dungeon (down the well). There are several methods to kill these, however since the cannon does so much work, choosing between them is personal preference as it will not effect kills/hr drastically.

    Gear needed for long trips (safe):

    Invent:
    10-14 SUPER Prayer Pots (Normal will mean shorter trips)
    2-3 Extreme def and str pots
    Cannon with 6000 cannon balls to be safe
    Ring of slaying or house in Pollivinieach then just bring teleport to house tab
    Steel Titan with scrolls or pak yak with scrolls if wanting to bank herbs
    Special items (not needed if want):Herbicide to burn herbs if not using yak or
    Bonecrusher to burry bones for u so you can see drops eaiser.

    100% needed: SLAYER HELM OR MASKED EARMUFFS

    ---------------------------------------
    Gear: try to bring gear like this so that you can stay alot longer prayer gear is very good

    Proselyte Body and legs
    Dragon boots
    Barrows Gloves
    Fury ammy
    Rune defender
    Chaotic Rapier or longsword (opion)
    Soul Wars cape of Fire Cape
    Berk Ring or Berk Ring (e)
    ALSO
    SLAYER HELM OR MASKED EARMUFFS

    Picture of gear and Invent:




    [​IMG]





    ----------------------------------------
    Teleport to Pollivinieach via slayer ring, move your house here OR the chipped house teleport after love story.
    (By moving your house here you will gain 1 inventory space)
    Go down the well and take the stairs down in the south-east corner. Note if you do NOT have a slayer helmet on OR earmuffs - the banshees will reduce your stats and they are aggressive.
    Run north east past the aberrants then you will get to another red barrier. You will see a room full of cave crawlers, head through this circular room and into the second chamber.

    IMPORTANT FACT:

    Note: On your first visit here you will have to fight a "boss" cave crawler, just give him a quick pwning - bank then come back with desired gear and inventory :)

    XP Rates and other facts:


    That's pretty much it, go to town, you will be killing a lot so constant checking of loot piles is needed. Herbicide is highly recommended due to clearing the ground of quite a few herbs (You will also gain 3-5k herblore xp per hour).

    The Figures:
    75k Melee Xp an Hour
    25K Constitution Xp an Hour
    30k Defence/Range xp an Hour (Iron/Steel titan)
    130k Range Xp an Hour (Cannon)
    45k Summoning Xp an Hour (All charms)
    ~4k Herblore Xp an Hour(Herbicide)
    140k Random Xp an Hour(Effigy + Lamp)

    Total Xp/Hr gained here. 415k with yak, ~450k with familiar.
    Total Cost: 1.4m with Yak, 2m with Titan

    This method is aimed at extremely rich people & people who do not care for slayer xp. (They are not assigned by Kuradel)



    HOPE YOU ENJOYED :)

    1.0 - Introduction

    With the introduction of Runescape's newest threat, players from all over the land have been seeking the riches of this wretched beast. This monster is designed to be virtually impossible to solo, not to say that it can't be, but extremely difficult. To reap the rewards, you can't do it alone. Call upon your friends and even your enemies as defeating this beast will certainly put you and your companions to the test.


    ================


    2.0 - Requirements

    First off, to even think of killing this beast, I recommend the following:
    85+ Hitpoints - you can get KO'ed easily if you're not careful
    85+ Attack - for melee
    85+ Strength - for melee
    80+ Defense - for overall tanking
    80+ Range (without ranging potion) - for range [Ruby bolts (e) and Diamond bolts (e)]
    80+ Mage - increase your defense against mage attacks and spell-casting abilities
    37+ Prayer - protect from magic
    These stat recommendations are important as your chance of surviving is much greater with higher defense and hitpoints.


    You MUST have completed Spirit of Summer and Summer's End.



    ================


    3.0 - Monster stats and general information







    Weaknesses:
    Stab attacks (melee)
    - Zamorakian Spear (highest stab bonus)
    - Guthan's Warspear
    - Verac's Flail
    - Dragon Halberd
    - Leaf-Bladed sword + Rune Defender
    - Dragon Longsword
    - Dragon Spear

    Ranged attacks
    - Ruby Bolts (e)
    - Diamond Bolts (e)

    Magic attacks
    - Slayer Dart
    - Saradomin Strike
    - Ancient Magicks (Ice/Blood)

    Other Information:
    The Beast resides in a Multi-Combat area. In order to achieve 3-5 kills on average before having to restock, it is wise to go in a group of 8-14 as it is much more effective and profitable. Of course the more people, the faster and potentially longer you will stay before having to restock on supplies. The Beast heals itself when it eats a familiar.

    Do remember that some people will last longer per trip as its random in regards to who the Beast targets, although when someone hits high or often on it, it tends to target that player.


    Rumours: (NOT PROVEN)
    - Wearing Jennica's Ring increases the chance of getting a unique/rare drop.
    - Wielding a Spirit Shield or Blessed Spirit Shield can reduce damage dealt by the beast.



    ================


    4.0 - Monster Drops





    Do note that the Unique Drops are extremely rare hence their value in G.E. and do not come by easily. Even in large masses for several hours to days will not guarantee a Unique Drop.


    Holy Elixir + Sigil + Spirit Shield gives you: (Reference: RuneScape - MMORPG - The No.1 Free Online Multiplayer Game website)



    ================


    5.0 - Inventory and Equipment


    Since it is fairly easy to be killed and it's constant high hitting capacity through armour bonus, its not advisable to take defensive gear. Hybrids and Rangers are the exception as armour attributes to offensive bonuses. Furthermore, a '1-click' teleport such as Ectophial/Teleport Tablet is vital for a quick way out of danger. Lastly, do be sure to check the items kept on death before going to battle just in case you aren't prepared to lose items of great value.


    Welfare Gear:
    Cheap and effective. Shark can be substituted with Monkfish.
    5.1 - Hybrid set-up:
    This is the most efficient template. Begin with Ruby Bolts (e) and crossbow until the beast reaches 50% health and then switch to melee. This build can potentially increase the speed of kills.

    > There is a Zamorakian spear in the inventory - it can be substituted for a Dragon Halberd or Dragon Spear.
    > Archer Helm -> Helm of Neitiznot
    > Ring of Life
    > Phoenix Necklace/Amulet of Fury -> Amulet of Glory
    > Rune Crossbow -> Crystal Bow
    > Black D'hide Body + Chaps
    > RFD Gloves (Barrow's) -> Black D'hide Vambs
    > God Book (Zamorak)
    > Snakeskin Boots
    > Prayer Potion (4)
    > Saradomin Brew (4)
    > Super Restore Potion (4)

    5.2 - Range set-up:
    More expensive, but to some degrees safer and more efficient especially with Ruby Bolts (e) - requires less running/moving. First begin with Ruby Bolts (e) till the Beast reaches 50% health and then switch to Diamond Bolts (e).

    > Similar to the Hybrid set-up except no melee weapon and no super set.
    > Refer to Hybrid-set up
    > Recommended: Ranging potion

    5.3 - Melee set-up (1):
    Another set-up although less variable, requires a lot more running around to avoid attacks.

    > Zamorakian Spear -> Dragon Halberd -> Dragon Spear
    > RFD Gloves (Barrow's)
    > Ring of Life
    > Amulet of Fury -> Amulet of Glory -> Amulet of Strength -> Phoenix Necklace
    > Prayer potion (4)
    > Super Set (Attack/Strength)
    > Recommended: Robes that increase prayer bonus (i.e. Zamorak Robes)

    5.4 - Melee set-up (2):
    Proselyte Armour set - prayer lasts much longer.

    > Proselyte Armour set (L/Sk)
    > Helm of Neitiznot -> Proselyte Sallet
    > Zamorakian Spear -> Dragon Halberd -> Dragon Spear
    > RFD Gloves (Barrow's)
    > Ring of Life
    > Amulet of Fury -> Amulet of Glory -> Amulet of Power - > Phoenix Necklace
    > Dragon Boots -> Climbing Boots
    > Prayer Potion (4)
    > Super Set (Attack/Strength)

    Wealth Gear:
    Expensive, riskier but quite useful.
    5.5 - Melee set-up (3):
    Guthan's Armour set - self heals and high stab attack bonus.

    > Guthan's Armour set
    > Dragon Boots -> Climbing Boots
    > RFD Gloves (Barrow's)
    > Ring of Life
    > Phoenix Necklace -> Amulet of Fury -> Amulet of Glory
    > Fire Cape -> Skill Cape -> Cape of Legendz
    > Prayer Potion (4)
    > Saradomin Brew (4)
    > Super Restore (4)
    > Super Set (Attack/Strength)

    5.6 - Melee set-up (4):
    Verac's Armour set - ignores defensive bonuses on enemy.

    > Verac's Armour set
    > Refer to Melee set-up (3)

    You may choose to bring a cannon along as it kills the Dark Core easily, it is quite useless on the Beast though. Make sure you prioritise setting it up before doing anything else when you enter into battle and minimise the amount of cannonballs you take to about 150-200 for a small group of 10-15 people.


    Note:
    Only take items you are willing to lose, there is no guarantee that you will survive. You will only keep your best 3 or 4 items (with protect item prayer) on death.

    Ring of Life is a MUST as it can save you from dying. I recommend taking a Phoenix Necklace (enchanted diamond necklace) - it restores your HP if it reaches below 20%, restoring 30% of your maximum HP. It has only 1 use but is extremely useful and activates before the Ring of Life if your HP reaches below 10%. It is also recommended that you only take food that heals 20+ HP (sharks and above) as the beast can hit you multiple times and deal insane amounts of damage in a short period of time.



    ================


    6.0 - Getting there

    6.1 - How to get to the Beast's Lair:
    The best way is by using a Gaming Necklace to teleport to Bounty Hunter, from there you can set yourself up and then go straight to the lair (green path). It's also very convenient as the lair isn't far and you can keep restocking supplies quickly before re-entering especially when you're in a large group. Then continue through the lair till you reach the last entrance to where you finally defeat the Beast in the quest.




    Oh Dear! You are dead!
    In case of death, teleport to the nearest bank, withdraw a Gaming Necklace, Energy Potions and/or a Spirit Terrorbird/Bull Ant pouch with 'run' scrolls and some decent food (Monkfish+) and then teleport to Clan Wars. From there, use the red path and run back to the lair - you should be able to retrieve several items just as they begin disappearing. The purple dots are the teleport spawn locations of the Gaming Necklace (Bounty Hunter and Clan Wars respectively - from left to right of the map).


    6.2 - Meeting Spot:
    Gather your team at this location and check to see whether the room is empty by using the "Peek-in" option when right-clicking on the entrance.



    6.3 - Peek-in Option:
    When in this mode, you can view the room completely by moving your arrow keys to further investigate "whats inside".




    ================


    7.0 - Procedure

    7.1 - Before entering:
    At the meeting spot, make sure your team mates are ready - check that LootShare/CoinShare is activated, pot up (brews, super sets), turn magic prayer on then enter the room where the beast is and spread out with your team.



    7.2 - Luring:
    To save a player(s) from wasting food and/or potentially dying while everyone 'rushes' towards the Beast (which is not recommended anymore as Jagex have update the beasts abilities), you can lure the Beast by entering the room with Pray from Mage on (potentially reducing any damage dealt) and grabbing it's attention - when it starts attacking, you will know that it has your attention. Meanwhile, your teammates wait on the other side. Then the player can leave the room and the Beast will eventually walk up to the the barrier that seperates you from it, which discontinues its stream of attacks.

    Do note that if the Beast has discharged an attack that targets you (not a Unique Attack), even if you leave the room, it will deal damage to you.





    At this point, anyone besides the person that lured the Beast can enter the room without fear of being attacked. When someone starts attacking it, it will change targets after a short delay.

    7.3 - During battle:
    Rangers should be spread around the room surrounding the beast, while warriors should be circling the beast nearby.




    ================


    8.0 - Beast Attacks

    Due to an update on the 15th of October to the Beasts abilities, the strategy of running under the Beast when targeted is for the most part useless.



    Its magic and ranged attacks can hit high and often. When the beast targets you (regardless of whether you are melee, mage or range), it will start attacking you with either magic, range and/or unique attack(s). As soon as you realise you are its target, run back through the barrier, heal up and wait till it changes target. Meanwhile, your teammates are able to deal damage while it focuses its attention on you.

    Once it stops targeting you, go back into the room and continue attacking it. Repeat the process when you are targeted again.

    If the beast faces towards you, you should attempt to face its backside regardless of whether you are its target or not. This can potentially save you from getting hit by its Unique Attack. Furthermore, mage protection can substantially reduce the amount of damage inflicted by the Beast.


    8.1 - Mage Attack:
    This deals mass damage up to 65 but acts as a warning sign when you are being targeted as it gives you time to react.



    8.2 - Range Attack:
    This attack drains several stats, including magic and prayer and deals up to 55 damage.



    8.3 - Stomp Attack:
    This attack style is the Beast's defensive mechanism for when players attempt to hide under it so that it cannot focus on them. The Beast unleashes this attack which deals a substantial amount of damage preventing you from utilising its huge size as an 'escape' method from damage.

    (picture soon to be added)

    8.4 - Unique Attack:
    Claw-like attack which does not directly follow a target.



    As soon as you see this style of attack going towards your direction, run away from it to avoid its multiple damage effect.

    8.5 - Unique Attack (2):
    When the claw hits the ground, it splits into several smaller claws that spawn from its origin dealing damage in its surrounding radius of 3 x 3 squares to 6 x 6 squares.




    This attack can deal multiple amounts of damage sufficient enough to KO anyone even from 99 HP. It is important to keep your HP above 80 at all times.


    8.6 - Stomp
    This attack is triggered whenever there is someone underneath the boss, it will act like a shockwave and deal damage to anyone who is under it. This amount of damage can critically kill someone.

    8.7 - Dark Core:
    The Beast will shoot out a Dark Core (Level-75) which drains your health and heals the Beast, it bounces from place to place. When you see it moving towards your location or to where you are currently standing, run away from it. . Even if you are a square next to it, it will deal damage to you and heal its master. Be alert at all times. It has 25 HP so is easily killable with a cannon or a high hit.



    When you are near the Dark Core, you will start taking damage anywhere from 5-13 damage per hit. You will also receive information in your chat screen telling you that:

    ya im only a lvl 33 dungeoneering dude and im a f2p guy. so for all the f2p people out there i got an easy way for you to lvl up. i got to 33 in 2 weeks so trust me this is easy and really simple. if you are famiiar with daemonheim then just go to world 1 (really populated) and start saying something like "lvl 3 dungeon floor 3 need party" and within 5 minutes you would have got an invite. its really useful and ive already tried it out. so trust me it works, u just need a bit of patience and a decent combat.:wacky:

    crafting guide 1-40 in runescape

    :D:Dya this is a simple guid for one of the most boring but essential skils for f2p players in runescape, crafting. now my crafting was 3 for a really long time and i had no idea how to level it up. but now i got a foolproof way to get it all the way to 40(the lvl u can enter the crafting guild). it gets really hard after 40 and trust me crafting is a boring skill anywayz.

    1-12: mine clay from the varrock mines. go to the general store and get a jug. make all the clay into soft clay. go to barbarian village and make all the soft clay into unfired pottery and then heat it in the oven.
    its boring but as i said crafting on a whole is boring. if u dont like crafting u can alwayz look at my other guide for f2p on combat.

    13-40: guess what! it now gets more boring. u need to have a mining of atleast 20 and smithing 20 too. go to alkharid and mine silver or i reccomend just buying some. make it into bars and buy a tiara mould or holy symbol mould in the crafting shop in akharid. then click on the bar and use it on the furnace. chhose the tiara or holy mould. make everything into tiaras and keep going all the way to 40.

    thats my way and i would appreciate any suggestions or better ways because this took me only 6 days.!!!:wacky::D
