    General PvM guide
    Hello everybody, i wanted to share with you some tips that imo are the best option while PvMing, hopefully they will help you with your DPS.

    General:

    Potions:
    • Stat boosting potions: Using boosting potions is always recommended, even for lower level bosses, you use either combat potions (to save up some inventory), super sets (cheap option), extreme sets (a little more expensive than super set but for higher level bosses they are recommended over super sets), overloads (expensive but its the best option).
    • Prayer restoring potions: Here we gotta choose what is our preferred potion, we can chose between prayer potions, super restore potions (besides restoring your prayer points, they can restor your lowered stats, these are a must if you are using saradomin brews for healing), super prayer restore potions (they restore some more points per sip than the others), also you can combine the on u chose with prayer renewal potions (will restore prayer points over time, lasting 5 minutes).
    • Special attack recover: this potion is very useful for players using a spec weapon, it will recover 25% of your special attack bar per sip. Extreme+ players can ignore these as they can restore their spec bar at ::ez
    Food:
    • Fishes: i will just list the food you can use: Rocktail - Mantaray - Shark - Monkfish.
    • Saradomin brew: these will allow you to have more life points available per inventory slot, but they will lower all of your stats exept defence. These are in general combined with overloads and super restores to make you last longer while Pvming, also used in PvP.
    Summoning: Always that you are in a multi combat area, its recommended to make use of summoning, such as a beast of burden to bring more supplies, or an attacking follower.
    Gear:
    depending on what you are doing you can pick between some setups, for tanking gear nex is always the best, because of the hp boost and its high defence stats, i will list a setup for melee and one for ranged, which i think is the best DPS gear you can get in the game right now.

    Melee:

    In my opinion this is the best melee setup you can get, when solo i just use ring of wealth as i cba switching rings.
    Head: vanguard helm - serpentine helm
    Torso: vanguard body - vesta's chainbody
    Legs: vanguard legs - vesta's plateskirt
    Boots: steadfast boots - dragon boots
    Gloves: barrow gloves
    Cape: completionist cape - tokhaar kal
    Amulet: amulet of fury - glory
    Ring: berserker ring (i) - warriors ring (i)
    Shield: dragon defender
    Weapon: sir owen's longsword - chaotic rapier - tentacle whip
    Spec weapon: vesta's longsword - armadyl godsword - saradomin godsword - dragon dagger

    Ranged:
    [​IMG]
    This is the best ranged DPS setup that you can get ingame right now, a combination of void and trickster.
    Head: void ranger helm
    Body: trickster robe
    Legs: void knight robe
    Boots: glaiven boots
    Gloves: void knight gloves
    Cape: completionist cape
    Amulet: amulet of ranging
    Ring: archer's ring (i)
    Ammo: dragon bolts
    Shield: void knight deflector
    Weapon: armadyl crossbow

    Slayer: if you are on a boss slayer task, slayer helm is always your best option, full slayer helm in the case you are using ranged/mage.

    General offhand tips: always use the best DPS offhand you can, dragon defender for melee, and if not using the ranged setup above, then your best option is twisted buckler, only use divine if you need to tank. For mage your best option is arcane spirit shield.
    DFS is a melee shield, its a bad idea to use it if you are ranging or maging as it has negative bonuses for both of this styles.

    Bolts:
    • Dragon bolts (e): Powerful spec, on low lvl targets its the best option.
    • Diamond bolts (e): Their spec will lower targets, they are more accuarate than dragon, but have lower hits.
    • Ruby bolts (e): Their spec will hit very high on high hp bosses, but theres a problem with these, the spec hit doesnt count as damage done by the player, so someone with diamonds or dragon bolts can crash you, i recommend using them only when you are solo.
    • Onyx bolts (e): they hit pretty nice, their spec heals you.

    You can inbox me on forums or join the chat "supergirl" ingame and ill answer anything you need PvM related.
    Thanks to Bon jovi :)

    Nice guide!! Just few tips:
    - twisted buckler > odium ward
    - Void with top and twisted buckler is same dps as the trickster top and deflector I think
    - for high hp npc's use ruby bolts e, for high defence npc's use diamond bolts e. Dragon bolts e have the highest spec while onyx bolts e are the best regular damage where their spec heals hp.

    You sure about that 2nd point? I don't think that's right, it's higher accuracy with top then the shield

    @Supergirl
    You can also mention that mage is shit for pvm and should never be used XD. Nice guide I was going to make one very similar but have been too busy with testing stuff for Julius.

    The truth is that mage was pretty good at Nex, and due to its retarded high def no style is good there now. I think we should wait till it gets fixed and try mage there.
    Also i use mage a lot in Zulrah, find it better than using ranged only.
    But for other bosses it kinda sucks yeah.

    If you're a donor I believe donor shop may still have them. If not I think it's from slayer but I may be wrong.
