Oldschool Runescape Ironman guide By OzirisRS Old version: http://pastebin.com/u5engCfu This version is mostly copy pasted from the old, with improved quest order and new methods, just in case you're wondering why it looks the exact same at first. If you want to donate to me for making this guide, here's a link you can use: paypal.me/ozirisrs This is completely optional, all donations are very much appreciated. Please read this first bit before starting with the actual guide. If there's a mistake in this guide somewhere then feel free to tweet me @ozirislol but don't tell me to update this as soon as some new update comes, these take a very long time to make. Also I rarely reply to questions that can easily be answered by using ctrl+F on this guide OR by googling. There is no single right way to play this game, everything in this guide is just what I would recommend. If you don't want to follow a step by step guide then feel free to do your own thing. It might still be worth reading this to pick up some ideas on what goals you could go for. Thank you for reading and enjoy the guide! Good luck & have fun. Contents 1.

I will mention to bring gp regardless most of the time, but if I don't then keep it on you anyway Use every book and lamp on Herblore if possible. Use Authenticator AND 2-step verification on registered e-mail 1.1 Early quests, wintertodt and ardy cloak 1 Lumby Talk to Duke Horacio and Father Aereck to start quests Rune mysteries and Restless ghost Pick up every item spawn in the castle, including the ones in cellar, don't forget the cabbage Fill a jug with water Go to the top of the castle and light the logs until 15 Firemaking After that fletch the same logs into 1000 arrow shafts Pick up 4 ashes Pick up 1 log for later Take out 25gp from the bank Thieve men until 270gp, buy a steel axe (make sure the world is full stock, it should cost 200gp) HCIM, quickhop some cabbages in the cellar for hp, normals can just suicide for hp. Lumby swamp Kill a rat (safespot with ranged) for its meat Safespot: https://i.imgur.com/2KoC4xe.png Take a spade from the swamp shed that takes you to Zanaris. Talk to Father Urhney to get the ghostspeak amulet, equip it Take the air talisman to wizard tower Pick up 2 cheese at Aggie in Draynor village Walk to rimmington, pick up 1 snape grass near crafting guild at the hobgoblins. Make sure you have ~10 run energy for this so you can just quickly grab one and get out. Walk to Falador Start The Knight's sword quest by talking to the squire Minigame tele to Clan wars Inv: Steel axe, 70gp, Tinderbox, Jug of water, 1 normal log Recharge run energy using the FFA portal, then use the green portal north of the bank to teleport to Castle wars. Walk to yanille Check hunter store for ardy easy diary Buy a pie dish at Yanille cooking shop Walk to port Khazard Buy 1 swamp paste in the general store It's possible that the store is bought out and you can't afford it, try hopping a few times but if you can't get one then it's fine, you can get one later. Do Monk's friend Get 35 woodcutting at oak trees and firemake the logs as you cut them. 2 Oaks just south of ardy zoo http://i.imgur.com/EN5Jpdb.png Ardy Get 20 thieving with cake Bank 15 bread and ALL the cakes you get. Steal silk until 25 thieving Do Sheep herder, sell 6 cakes to the general store for the 100gp Take out GP and small fishing net Go buy swamp paste if you didn't manage to buy it earlier. Do Sea slug, fish shrimp while doing quest for diary After the quest, buy however many sardine you can fit in your inventory from the fish shop in Witchaven Sell your silk for 60gp each, keep 10 in bank for quests You should have 10k GP at this point Buy a Player-owned house. Buy rope, 5 vials, 30balls of wool and 7 papyrus from ardy general store Inv: rope, spade, gp, few cakes Dig up clue hunter gloves and boots north of Ardy, http://i.imgur.com/sOD5Zhz.png Buy greenman's ale from Rasolo Do Dwarf cannon until the part where you have to go to Ice mountain Pick up planks at BA until the log-in limit. If there happen to be no bots taking them, then you might not log out at all. Not sure how many you need in total but just get like 150 max for now. Try to get minimum of 100 planks unless there are literally no planks in any world. Do BA tutorial for minigame tele I think you can skip the tutorial nowadays but just make sure you have the teleport unlocked Start Barcrawl Do Waterfall quest until the part where you have to go to the gnome maze, remember to read the book Walk to Gnome stronghold Buy a drink from Blurberry for the Barcrawl miniquest. Buy these items from heckel funch(east of Blurberry); 1 pineapple, 1 orange, 2 lemons, 1 cocktail shaker, 1 cocktail glass 1 Dwellberries, 1 bucket of milk, 1 chocolate dust Buy 1000 bronze arrowheads(100/world for 1gp ea) The weapon shop is on 3rd floor south of the ladder Make the hangover cure for plague city quest Inv: Rope, dwellberries, hangover cure Walk to Ardy Do Plague city Minigame teleport to Clan wars, recharge energy and use the portal to Castle wars Take steel axe and a tinderbox Run south-west of castle wars Cut and firemake teak logs until 50 Firemaking Location http://i.imgur.com/cOzCs3x.png Minigame tele to Clan wars and run north to Varrock Equip ghostspeak amulet if you've banked it at some point Buy 1 saw, 500 bronze nails and 400 steel nails. If steel nails aren't in stock then buy them later Home tele, Lumby Talk to the ghost for Restless ghost quest Inv: Gp, bronze nails, hammer, saw, noted planks, 1k arrow shafts, 1k bronze arrowheads Leave 10 planks in the bank for questing. It doesn't really matter how many you were able to pick up earlier, our goal is just to get a few construction levels before wintertodt Buy a chronicle and 5 teleport cards from Diango Walk to port sarim Buy 1000 feathers Go to rimmington and use your planks, make chairs until level 4 and then bookcases until you run out of planks. Use phials to un-note planks Take the boat to Great Kourend Make your way to Wintertodt Fletch all 1k bronze arrows while you walk If you see wolves near wintertodt, you went the wrong way. Shouldn't get hit by anything on the way. Should now have 15 fletching and hopefully 15+ construction as well, this will increase the xp you get in these skills from wintertodt. Do Wintertodt until 60 Woodcutting, should get this at 89 firemaking if you don't fletch You really shouldn't be in any danger of dying with 10hp, but pay attention anyway, it's a long walk back if you die. 10HP accounts start taking 1 damage at 56FM even without warm clothing, but if you dug up the clue hunter boots and gloves earlier then you might as well use them. Keep opening the crates until you have 200k gp in bank, after that just keep them until later for better rewards. Ideally you should keep the crates until you run out of bank space, but if you don't get 12 mage logs from the initial crates, then you'll be opening them before Desert Treasure. Fletching the logs in my opinion isn't worth it but if you want to then go ahead. Personally I just fletch one when running from the roots to the brazier. If you want, feel free to get 99 firemaking in one go. Make sure to still keep the crates in the bank after 200k gp for better loot Inv: GP, few cakes, chronicle, bronze sword Home tele, Lumby Buy 3 buckets and 1 bucket pack from the general store Walk north to Fred's farm Get raw chicken at Fred's Pick up egg north of Fred Kill 1 cow calf for meat Fill 3 buckets with milk Dairy cow is north of the windmill Walk to Barbarian village (you can walk east of draynor manor by the river, don't walk around through falador or something like that) Get ammo mould and the notes for Dwarf cannon Use chronicle tele Varrock Start Gertrude's cat, pick up doogle leaves, use the leaves on a sardine Inv: bucket, barcrawl card, Rune mysteries package and GP Continue gertrude's cat, talk to the kids at Varrock centre.

Equip gloves Taverly Do Witch's house Tank the first 2 phases on the north side of the shed and run to safespot when you need to eat It's possible to safespot the first 2, but with fire strike you are in no real danger of dying with cakes. Do Druidic ritual Buy 1 PACK of eyes of newt and pestle and mortar in Taverly Falador Inv: pickaxe, eye of newt, 2 iron bars, bucket of water, pie dish, redberries, some food Make redberry pie You can buy flour and redberries at port sarim food shop. From the food shop, buy 1 raw meat also and burn it (cook twice) Do Witch's potion quest Finish the Knight's sword quest Mine 2 blurites, 1 is for diary Home tele and go to al-kharid Buy 50 thread, 3 needles and all of the moulds from the crafting shop. Start prince ali rescue and talk to Osman Buy 1 inv of bronze bars for questing from shantay pass. Do the tourist trap Safespot for the captain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFxB4zWqrd8 PUT BOTH XP REWARDS ON AGILITY, HOLD SPACE SO YOU DON'T ACCIDENTALLY PUT ONE ON THIEVING Minigame tele to fish trawler Buy 2 buckets of slime Buy 10 flour from general store Buy buckets of sand and soda ash until you hit the log-in limit. You only need to buy around 1200 buckets of sand and soda ash in total, rest of crafting will be done with other methods I recommend buying these supplies when you're gonna go afk for more than 10mins, this way you can buy them again when u log in Mine 15 clay south of Khazard Inv: Fire strike, barcrawl card, cakes, axe Fire strike imps west of the tower of life for all 4 beads Do Fight arena Do Tree gnome village, get Glarial's pebble on the way for Waterfall Safespot the khazard warlord, either by using another account to block him or just by walking in and out of his aggro range. Use the spirit tree and go to battlefield of khazard. Run to ZMI bank and safespot the zamorak warrior until you get a rune scimitar Getting the scim is optional but it's not too rare and you're still getting mage xp. You can also buy a rune sword from champion's guild if you don't want to camp for the scimitar. Get a drink from Ardy bar for the barcrawl. Buy 4 compost pack from the Ardy farming shop. Train 42 magic at Moss giants near fishing guild. Bury the bones From this point on, use teleports if it saves time/run energy. I'm not going to write every teleport to this guide.

Be careful in the last multicombat dungeon, it's probably the most dangerous area for a long time.

Don't bother with the blackjack miniquest, all of them have the same chance to knock out so just use the willow blackjack Blackjack until 50 thieving, you can buy wines from the bar to use as food. IF you're planning on 3-tick fishing then home tele to lumby and pick up 15 swamp tar now. If you think you're gonna keep messing up and making the tar multiple times, it might be worth your time getting 23 hunter and using kebbit claws with leather vambs instead. 23 hunter should take just less than 1 hour. Ardy cloak tele and take the boat from Ardy to brimhaven Take the cart to Shilo Village Use the furnace to make molten glass until level 32 crafting Buy 25k feathers from shilo village fishing shop If you can't afford them then open some of your wintertodt crates Get 58 fishing with trout and salmon You can pretty easily grow cats while doing this fishing grind since you can just feed it the fish you fish. I recommend raising 10 cats for death runes in total, after that it's up to you if you can be bothered. Minigame tele to Burthrope games' room Cook all of your trout, don't cook salmon yet Minigame tele to Barb assault Get 50 agility from barb fishing, should be at 74 fishing. You can feed caviar and roe to kitten, bring a knife to cut the fish I honestly can't recommend any other way to train to 50 agi than fishing, it doesn't take that long and you'll need the fish levels eventually anyway. After 50 agility Minigame tele to Burthrope Do the rogue's den minigame for full rogue outfit. Guide by Lelador, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5tQewEZPe4 Cook the salmon to regen run energy after every time you finish 1 attempt of the minigame Buy 50 lockpicks while you're here Equip the set and go back to blackjacking until you have 2.5m GP (around 84 thieving) Carpet back to Shantay pass Inv: teleport runes, all the golem quest items If you got any cosmic runes from moss giants, or unlocked Ali's rune shop then make 1 or 2 dueling rings now to speed up next 2 quests. Start the Golem START ELEMENTAL WORKSHOP 2 BY READING THE BOOK WHILE AT DIGSITE, keep the 2 items in bank Finish The Golem, get the gems with chisel and hammer Do Shadow of the storm(should have priest gown and black wizard hat in bank as your black items) 10K REWARD ON RANGED ALWAYS Flinch the demon with rune scimitar, just switch to darklight for the last hit. If you didn't get r scim while training mage, go buy a rune sword from champions guild Make an attack potion for the fight, speeds it up slightly Use the west torch as your safespot, https://i.imgur.com/kvn6Mf5.png Go to Edgeville and talk to Oziach to continue Dragon slayer Go to mage bank and buy 6k nats, all of the cosmics you can get while buying nats and 10 law runes each world up to 300 laws This might take more than 1 trip. HCIM can buy them from ali morrisane if you don't wanna risk mage bank, although they're more expensive. Teleport to Falador Get 2 buckets of sap from this tree near falador east bank, http://i.imgur.com/YoH5z70.png Buy addy and rune picks from the pickaxe shop in the mines. Complete Varrock easy diary for the armour, makes next step a bit faster You can get the kudos requirement by talking to historian Minas on the 2nd floor use the museum lamps on herblore Still not 30 herb, use diary lamp on agility Mine 3000 iron ore at ardy monastery, superheat them while walking to Ardy bank and tele back with ardy cloak. 3 ticking makes this a lot faster if you can be bothered Do medium clues if you get them from mining, might get a yew bow from reward (Comp bow works too, it's for temple of ikov) There are plenty of ways to get your magic up, i just like this since you get mining, smithing and later fletching xp as well. Don't smith the bars into anything yet 1.3 Fairy rings, 43 prayer, kingdom, 99 thieving Varrock Smith 3 bronze wire Buy oak longbow Start Priest in peril If you didn't manage to buy 400 steel nails at the start, check sawmill now. Do priest in peril Start Rag and bone man on the way to the temple Do Nature spirit Buy 1 raw shark from Canifis food shop Do Creature of Fenkenstrain Use port Phasmatys furnace, you should have slime in bank, use it to get 5 ecto-tokens Inv: Tele runes, gp, rune scim Use Chronicle tele Go champion's guild and continue Dragon slayer, ask every question Buy a coif, green dhide chaps and vambs Kill the nearby ram, bear and unicorn for their bones (Rag and bone man quest) Camelot tele Camelot Kill a giant bat (Rag and bone man) south west of Catherby Do Elemental workshop 2 Lumby Inv: axe, rope, lit candle, hammer, stake(vampire slayer), spade Get anti-dragon shield from the duke Kill a goblin for the bone for rag and bone man Lumby swamp Get big frog leg(you need to go in to the caves), giant rat bone(both for rag and bone man) Start Lost city Go to Draynor manor Do Ernest the chicken, finish vampire slayer Dig up the skull for fairytale part 1 while you're in the area to save some time later Entrana Talk to the high priest for Holy grail Get at least 5 Dramen branches, make 2 staffs Finish Lost city Draynor Start Fairytale part 1. The quest guide on os.rs.wiki lists where to get the 3 random items. If you get nature tally req, go to abyss with inv of food and kill leeches. Make sure you trap them so only 1 attacks Flinch Tanglefoot in this spot: https://i.imgur.com/2Ejgx0h.png Finish Fairytale1 Talk to martin to start Fairytale2 Buy 35 jugs of vinegar Buy 1 marigold seed, 3 cabbage seeds, 3 onion seeds from Draynor seed market Rescue prince ali from the jail While you wait for Martin's crops for FT2 Tele to Lumby Start Evil Dave subquest for RFD If you don't have a cat then raise one now. Kill 2 cows and make 1 soft, 1 hard leather Smelt 1 inv of gold, should have from wintertodt if you didn't get any gold then go mine some from the alkharid mine Make 1 recoil ring, 10 games necks and the rest into dueling rings From this point just use clan wars tele as your energy recharge before teleporting to a new location Draynor Speak to Martin for Fairytale 2 Go unlock fairy rings at Zanaris Bring gp, Maze key, 90steel nails, 3 planks, hammer, food, runes Tele to POH and do Melzar's maze (Dragon slayer quest) Walk to port Sarim jail and telegrab 2nd map piece Buy and repair the ship (dragon slayer) Tele to Fally Falador Bring gp, runes, soft clay, wizard mind bomb, lobster pot, silk Equip your anti-dragon shield and recoil ring now so you don't forget it later Make unfired bowl at barb village Talk to the oracle Get the 3rd map piece for dragon slayer Tele to Lumby get Ned as your captain for dragon slayer MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE ANTI-DRAGON SHIELD AND RECOIL RING EQUIPPED Go to Crandor and open the shortcut to Karamja volcano Bring swordfish/karambwans as your food As soon as you go climb down from Crandor, climb back up for karamja medium diary task Kill Elvarg, you can do as many trips as you want There are flinch spots in the room, but honestly you shouldn't have any trouble with this fight. Step under Elvarg when eating Finish dragon slayer and buy a green d'hide top from Oziach Wear gloves and pick up 5 nettles at the yews Make the stew for Evil Dave while you're at Edgeville If you don't have a cat then just leave for later, don't bother doing this with a kitten Tele to Lumby Fill a bowl with water, put nettles in it and use it on a range.(This is for ghosts ahoy quest) Finish Evil Dave subquest Do Death to the Dorgeshuun. While getting the robes, keep buttons(If you didn't get them while getting the rusty sword) Buy dorgeshuun crossbow and 4000 bone bolts Thieve Bullseye lantern from dorg chests Need a lockpick for the chests Finish Holy grail Do Horror from the deep quest Just mage the dagannoth and hide when it's weak to melee and range. Turn your run off so you don't get meleed, it's not difficult with blast spells. Use proper food like swordfish and karambwans. Do Turael slayer with dorg cbow until 37 Range We'll be using Turael until 50 tasks completed, every 10th task should be done with the highest level slayer master you can use. Even though we are using Turael, the goal is to get slayer xp so you should always kill monsters with higher hp, for example on bat tasks kill giant bats. Vannaka has too many bad tasks so I think this is overall better. Get 100% hosidius favour, should have 300 compost in bank at 45% do mess hall until 100% and don't forget to lock the favour by talking to Hosa Buy mithril and rune axe from the woodcutting guild Do Animal magnetism Buy mithril platebody from Horvik in Varrock Buy mithril platelegs from al-kharid Do Spirits of the Elid quest You can use the mithril armor for tanking the golems, or flinch them if you're taking too much damage. Do the Underground pass quest Use the mithril armour for this quest, don't really need anything better at this point and you'll need to buy it later anyway HCIM; While this quest might seem like a dangerous one without overheads, it's honestly not. Check out the video. Here's a video of me completing the quest with same combat stats you'd have: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI2SYhpwIh8 You can trap the paladins behind each other same way as the captain from the tourist trap quest. For the spider, there are 2 skeletons on the east wall, stand between them and then mage the big one with earth blast. Sometimes the little ones attack you but just run a bit north and then back to the same spot, they'll get stuck. Upgrade the iban staff Get 50 attack doing more Turael slayer, remember to get every 10th task from Vannaka If you get a task from Vannaka that you really can't do without melee protect then go kill sand crabs until 50 attack Make an amulet of magic Kill blue dragons with iban's blast for 43 prayer We don't have the agility level for shortcut yet so don't bother banking the hides, not worth doing twice as many trips. Add 2400 xp to your current prayer xp and calculate how many bones you need, level 43 requires 50339xp and 1 bone is 288xp with ectofuntus (2.4k pray xp is from ghosts ahoy quest which will be completed before using the bones) Regular ironmen can use the wildy altar if you want to, but either way it's only around 85 bones with ecto so do whichever method. Keep 1 dragon bone in your bank for the Watchtower quest Minigame tele to khazard Buy however many buckets of slime you need for the bones Equip Ghostspeak amulet If you didn't prepare the nettle water earlier, do it now Make sure you have all ghosts ahoy items bring GP stack, 9 d bones, 9 pot, 9 slime, general store sells pots if you don't have Charter to port Phasmatys Phasmatys/Canifis Start ghosts ahoy Grind 9 d bones and offer them, get ecto tokens Finish ghosts ahoy Grind the rest of your bones to get 43 prayer Do Monkey madness, focus the reward on attack and defense Do Wanted! quest Get 40 slayer Reminder once again, every 10th task from Vannaka (or from chaeldar if you're already 70cb) Prayer flicking is recommended, but Turael tasks are pretty easy so it's not mandatory Train range to 40 first and then start training Attack Do Shades of morton quest IF there's no one else to help you then this quest can be left until later assuming you used the museum lamps on herblore earlier. Take the book to the apothecary in Varrock for some free herb xp Get 25 herblore if you don't have yet Do Heroes' quest Do Fremennik trials Do Throne of miscellania Do Royal Trouble Put at least 750k gp to kingdom, set it on 10 herbs and 5 maples Always keep it on 10 herbs, but you can switch to 5 teaks at some point if you want to. Maples are good for afk fletching and birdhouses. If you want the absolute maximum yield then you have to get your favour back to 100% EVERYDAY rather than just when you collect, however it doesn't really make too big of a difference if you don't. Personally I do it every 3 days or so. Go back to blackjacking for a few hours and put more money to kingdom so that it doesn't drop below 750k Clean finds at the museum until you've found all 5 of the items you can get for kudos AND the ruby necklace Do Bone Voyage quest Set up your first bird houses Video by Alkan showing you how to start if you've never done them before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tf02JEqkUcA Birdhouses were nerfed but they're still by far the best method to train most of your hunter xp. I'm not gonna remind you to do a birdhouse run, do them every 50mins Don't bother waking up every 50mins to do a run, but while playing you should at least try to be consistent with them. AFTER your first birdhouse run, RC should be your lowest skill Do Tears of guthix quest, do the minigame weekly it's very worth it RC should always be your lowest skill when you do this Start The Giant Dwarf quest to unlock Keldagrim Buy 2 inventories of gold ore from the blast furnace shop Go Edgeville furnace and make plenty of digsite pendants and games necklaces Make molten glass until 45 crafting, assuming you have the supplies. You'll need 45 for maple birdhouse when you get the 44 hunter. 45 is around 1k buckets of sand and soda ash Move your house to Pollnivneach so you can do a birdhouse run and quickly get back to blackjacking. Get 99 thieving :) In all honesty it's not absolutely necessary to get 99 in one go, however it's recommended just for the gp you get from it. 99 thieving with the cape also means you never fail to pickpocket master farmers, so if you don't get 99 then you'll have to get your bird house seeds from Olivia, or do master farmers without 100% success rate. It's possible to do ardy knights instead if you prefer those, you'll have to do Ardy medium diary for them though. Ardy medium requires a mithril grapple, you can get it as a drop from barbarian spirits if you don't want to do smithing and fletching at this point. Iban's blast with protect from melee is probably your best bet there. This guide assumes you have the gp from 99 thieving, however most of it is spent after barrows gloves so you can still follow this without 99. Buy a thieving cape Thieve master farmers for a few hours to get a decent amount of seeds for farming and bird houses. Don't forget to wear rogues and the 99cape whenever you do master farmers Never farm guams, marrentill or tarromins. (unless you're hcim and need marrentills for training prayer, then farm some later) Guide by Lelador, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMCM-tOxCJ0 1.4 Various skilling, agility for graceful Now that we have kingdom AND birdhouses going it's time to go back to fishing There are a few options on when to stop barb fishing depending on your goals: If you don't want to fish at all and you're happy with 74 fishing, skip to the next step. Getting 84 fishing will get you 60 agility which is a decent enough level since the seers course is actually pretty good one to train on. 84 fishing also unlocks anglerfish and minnows for PVM 94 fishing is 70 agility and 70 str. Gets you access to Poll course and by the time you get graceful you'll be around 80 agility. Also means you can get defenders very quickly since you only need to get to 60 attack 97 fishing is 72 agi and str. Stopping here is recommended if you're going to do some PVM but your goal is also maxing, the last 2m xp will come from karams/minnows/anglers for PVM 99 fishing if you're rushing max. Pick whichever option seems best for you. If you're gonna do minnows, get Angler's outfit at 81 fishing so you get manta rays instead of some crap fish like swordfish. Keep doing bird houses while fishing. After fishing (or during if you want a small break) Buy pinapples for supercompost from charter ships Put 15 pineapples into each of the compost bins at the allotment patches Don't do Hosidius patch yet, we'll be doing construction soon which requires house in Rimmington so it's not worth switching house to Kourend for 1 compost run and then switching back Mine Volcanic ash for ultra compost, get like 2k so you don't have to constantly come back to mine more Do a "compost run" meaning that you just get the compost from the bin and put another set of pineapples in them Store 15 supercompost in leprechaun for a quest, make the rest into ultras Use volcanic ash on the full bin rather than individual buckets of supercompost Buy ~200 chocolate from the grand tree food shop, don't buy too much since it's faster later from the RFD chest Make energy pots, plenty of harralanders from kingdom Camelot tele Plant barley seeds at the hops patch northwest of seers, pay the farmer 3 normal compost to look after them Minigame tele to blast furnace Do the Giant Dwarf quest if you need more rubies or emeralds, the gem stall in keldagrim is usually stocked. These next 2 quests have times where you have to wait for stuff to happen, smith iron dart tips while you wait Forgettable tale of a drunken dwarf quest There's an anvil near the bank in keldagrim Your barley will be ready when you need it, use it on a range to get the barley malt Garden of tranquility quest Enlightened journey quest While waiting for the willow tree to grow; Do Eyes of glouphrie and Tower of life Smith the rest of your iron dart tips, leave 20 bars for quests Do a farm run of limpwurts, harralanders and more compost I'm not gonna be mentioning farm runs anymore, just do them whenever. Always use ultra compost on herbs, for limps i'd just use normal compost because the seeds are so easy to get. Go to the woodcutting guild Cut and make 1500 oak planks There's a deposit box inside the axe shop which is faster to use than the bank Get 50 construction lvl 22-33, oak dining table in the dining room lvl 33-50, oak larder in the kitchen Do Temple of Ikov quest Start fletching iron darts while you run around doing quests If you didn't get a yew bow from medium clues that you got from skilling, catching eclectics is probably the best option Do the Regicide quest Pick up a few whiteberries just north of the elf tracker Finish Enlightened journey if you didn't already Unlock Castle wars and Varrock balloons for diaries Go to the small island at fossil island with the bank, where you dive to seaweed patches Make 2 lantern lenses before using all of your molten glass Dive down and blow all of your molten glass into unpowered orbs The goal here is to pick up the seaweed spores that spawn every now and then Like this: https://i.imgur.com/ecDT2Az.png The spores can spawn north of the anchor so make sure you're checking the minimap and not just your item overlay I was getting around 25 spores/h while doing this, it's not much but it'll get you started. Plant seaweed after you get your first 2 spores. Do Hand in the sand quest, get daily sand every day Do these quests while fletching darts: Big chompy bird hunt Rag and bone man (first part, should have all bones in bank already) Family crest Start Legend's quest (Get vanilla pod for RFD) Death plateau Troll Stronghold I'll assume you have fletched all of the darts now. Go back to the seaweed patches to pick up the random seaweed spores. Fletch maple shortbows (u) until 55 fletching Fletch all of your maple logs into maple longbows (u) You will get a weight warning but you can just ignore that, it makes no difference unless you go to the deep water Make sure to leave some maple logs for birdhouses Buy 2300 gold ore from blast furnace ore shop, 2 invs per world Get goldsmith gauntlets Get 60 smithing Go to Edgeville Craft the gold bars into gold BRACELETS, leave like 30 bars for teleport jewellery if you need to make more Reminder to buy rubies from either keldagrim or kourend castle gem stalls if you run out The reason we are doing bracelets instead of amulets is the extra 120gp per high alch, which is worth more than 5xp Get mage arena cape while you're here anyway Buy another ~6k nats (from mage bank, get some cosmics too) HCIM; if scared, you should still have enough nats to get 63mage with alching, and then you can boost to get into wizard guild. Do agility until full graceful Alch your gold bracelets and maple bows while doing agility Loot kingdom and fletch more longbows to alch if you run out. Finish graceful even if you don't have enough alchs. Should get to around 70 mage by the time you're done with agility for now Do all of the RFD subquests Get 70 cooking at the Hosidius mess hall if you didn't get it from 3tick fishing Buy a bunch of chocolate dust from the chest and make energy pots Do A soul's bane quest Complete Varrock medium diary About daily bstaffs, I personally don't bother with them nowadays since you get so much gp anyway. If you want to do them then i'd recommend to at least wait until 59rc so you can rc double cosmics Get crafting supplies for 61 crafting, make molten glass at Edgeville Burn your giant seaweed into soda ash Put house into Yanille and fill your buckets with sand, bank at G.E using varrock tele after medium diary I don't have exact number on how many sand and ash you need, you can calculate it like so: (303000-Current xp) / 72.5 Should be just less than 1500 Get 61 craft, might as well do it underwater again for some seaweed spores 1.5 Diaries and finishing RFD Plant some Toadflax seeds, agility potion is needed soon for a quest Make a mithril grapple Do these quests for QP and diaries: Another slice of H.A.M Icthlarin's little helper Eagles' peak Enakhra's lament Rat catchers Olaf's quest Between a rock Tai bwo wannai trio Zogre flesh eater Rum deal & Cabin fever (Req 42 slayer, you should be close to it. Get a task from Mazchna for Mory diary if you don't have one) For the 47 prayer req, you can use the ancient mace spec to boost One small favour Watchtower quest Do all easy and medium diaries Wildy and fremmy mediums require higher slayer, leave those for when you go back to slayer. You probably don't have a crystal key for fally medium diary yet so leave that for later as well. For Lumby 50 range req I'd recommend ranging at pest control with bone cbow If you're not 70cb for intermediate boat then go do slayer now, train attack to 60 then defense until 70cb May as well stay until you get 250pts for void bottoms, good mage def. Need 55 range eventually anyway for red chins. Do Slayer until 60 attack Buy Dragon scim and Dragon battleaxe Do Eadgar's ruse Do My arm's big adventure Do Desert Treasure Get as much herb xp you can get from banked herbs and then open wintertodt crates for the mage logs if you didn't get them early. If you didn't get any mage logs from the crates then your best option would probably be nature implings in puro puro Could also do more wintertodt, even at 55hp and 90fm you're only taking 3dmg from the regular hits Training woodcutting is of course also an option Finish RFD, buy B gloves Here's a video of me killing the bosses with stats from following this guide, not too difficult: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv1h-4grhks 2. Goals after Barrows gloves Thieve master farmers every time you're out of seeds, slayer doesn't give that many herb seeds until higher levels. Get 70 mining and do Lunar's diplomacy 60 is needed for now, but i'd recommend 70 to complete fremmy hard diary very early for the shortcut Do Magic training arena for bones to peaches (diary req) and infinity boots. Should get you 77 magic if you've been alching maples Can also get master wand if you want, mage's book i'd say isn't really worth especially if you got tome of fire from WT. Get 80 crafting Might not have quite enough giant seaweed yet, just get whatever level you can for now. You can also do the old chartership method, which is actually still more xp/h, not sure how crowded it's nowadays though. Make at least 2 glories, put one in your house. Make a ring of wealth to use during slayer This is of course if you've gotten crystal keys or dragonstone drops yet, which you very well might not have. Get a helm of neitiznot Get a fighter torso from BA Get a dragon defender If you didn't fish for str levels then you're gonna have to do some slayer before defenders to get access to warrior's guild. Train defense to 60 while getting defenders Read the rest of the guide so you'll know what's coming Start slaying. Plenty of garbage tasks early on, but just gotta deal with them. Should have plenty of ranarrs from master farmers if you don't want to pray flick. Prioritize slayer points on; Blocks* > Superior slayer > Slayer ring unlock > Blocks* > Herb sack/Slayer helm > Broads/Garg finisher > Extensions *Read the block list vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv How you slay doesn't really make a difference nowadays as long as you melee nechryals in slayer tower, this is just how I like to slay ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Use Nieve until 100 combat Nieve Block/Skip list Block: Suqah (Block these asap) Black demon (Trash, skip if no points to block) Kalphite (Block after superiors and rings, you can kill the low lvls for fast points) Hellhound (Block after superiors and rings, do them if you don't have 100pts, not worth skipping) Skip: Iron dragon Steel dragon Scabarites Brine rats Turoth (Not terrible but I wouldn't do these, definitely skip before herb sack) Mutated zygomites (you can do these for points if you want, i cba) Waterfiends Some additional notes: The only task I ever extend is nechryals I use the expeditious bracelets on all short tasks like ankou, black dragon The only tasks I use slaughter bracelets are: Blue dragon lizardman shaman(flick it for kill) before DWH Abby demons before whip if I don't bother boosting for it Krakens before trident. Get 58 slayer and camp for a black mask, do clues for black dhide Do Slayer until level 70 If you're fletching maples for some afk time, stop making longbows at around 75 fletching and make arrow shafts instead Need around 700k arrow shafts(11.6k maple logs) if you're going for 99 fletching The whole process of making broad arrows is roughly 180k xp/h even if you just bankstand, so a lot better than maple longs Broad arrows instead of bolts is because arrows are only 5.8gp/xp compared to bolts which are like 20gp/xp Regular ironman: Kill green dragons for 70 prayer, use them at wildy altar Use loot bag and bank hides also, make dhide bodies Unlock piety Next few goals: 100% all zeah favours 100 combat via slayer hunt 2500 red chins, start MM2, chin 70 range Western provinces hard diary Get 60 construction with this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFH6-oJrJ0o ~92 hunter, get +90 range with the chins Fire cape Quest cape HCIM: Myth's guild green dragons for 70 prayer, use gilded altar Switch to Duradel, karamja gloves 3 or npc contact for new tasks Unlock lizardman tasks, msb(i) and rune arrows or rcbow and runite bolts are still very decent at 90+ range against shamans Unblock black demons until 4 zenytes I just leave the shards in bank until i get a trident, then i go get chaos runes from barrows Slayer until trident complete hard diaries at some point during that grind to mix it up a little Duradel block/skip list (once again, this is just my preference) Block: Abyssal demon (after maybe 5 whip drops, keep suqah blocked until then) Black demon (after zenytes) Kalphite Hellhound (unblock temporarily when you wanna do cerb) Cave Kraken (after trident and tentacle) Greater demon Skip: Suqah (Do 1 task if you need teeth for spirit tree payment) Spiritual creatures Trolls Fire giant Iron dragon Steel dragon Scabarites Brine rats Turoth Kurask (I think they're garbage even if you get a leaf baxe) Mutated zygomites (you can do these for points if you want, i cba) Waterfiends Some additional notes: The only task I ever extend is nechryals I use the expeditious bracelets on all short tasks like ankou, black dragon The only tasks I use slaughter bracelets are: Blue dragon lizardman shaman(flick it for kill) before DWH Abby demons before whip if I don't bother boosting for it Krakens before trident. 3. PVM preparation, Barrows, Zulrah After trident: Get 83 or higher herblore, boost with botanical pie to anti venoms Get 82 construction with teaks, make the mounted myth cape for higher xp/plank You could go get a dragon axe from dks before this but even with rune axe it's not that much slower Boost +8 const for the highest tier pool Get 93 crafting Do barrows for 120k chaos runes and buy 4 onyxes for the zenytes If you get lucky with all the good items first then just buy the rest of the runes fury is kinda useless so i'd just wait until onyx drop from zulrah Kill Zulrah for the uniques I'll be ending the guide here, you can pretty much do anything you want now that you have trident, blowpipe, barrows, zenytes etc. Unlike the last 2 versions of this guide, i'm not going to list like exact boss kc's for max total, because rushing max is not my playstyle anymore so I honestly have no clue. Instead I will write some notes on a couple of things: Zulrah: Was once the answer to everything when it came to ironman, but with direct and especially indirect nerfs, Zulrah has become less important. It's still definitely worth doing zulrah for scales for other activities. Vorkath: Not 100% on this since I haven't done too many vorkath kills, but i'd probably do a couple thousand kills after DHCB and rigour. Vorkath is mostly GP that you get which isn't too important, but it's still something a bit different than just camping green dragons for all of your bones. That's about it I guess, if there's something else you want me to write to this ending bit then feel free to tweet me. Hope you enjoyed this guide.
