Quick Start Main Page

Introduction

This channel is intended as a guide for newer and returning players looking to jumpstart their way into RS3 PvM and Bossing. This page links to a host of pages, each dedicated to cover important subjects that help you on your PvM journey.

General tips like setting up your game interface and basic money making to get started.

New to PvM to get you to level 70 in every combat style! There are:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Example upgrade orders and ability bars

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Guides on the important non-combat skills for PvM and some training methods

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Important quests to work towards

New to Bossing assumes you already have most of the PvM knowledge and skill from New to PvM, and helps you set progression goals for bossing. This includes prayer flicking, good bosses for learning, how to learn PvM, and how to transition to full manual combat.

⬥ Note that the discord links in here will refer to either of two Runescape Discord servers. If you have not joined these, the links won't work.

General Tips

Before you begin, it can be helpful to get a few things out of the way:

⬥ Setting up a good interface - see #interface-guide.

Help and Guidance

If you ever feel stuck, confused, in need of teamforming, or wanting personal input on your PvM situation; there are several resources you can jump to.

⬥ Joining a Clan (RS discord recruitment page: #unknown-channel) or dedicated discord servers (PvMe Discord affiliates: #unknown-channel) can be great for getting (PvM) help or finding people to PvM with.

⬥ You can ask Mentors in the RS Discord server for help #unknown-channel or look for groups in #unknown-channel

⬥ You can ask for advice in the pvm-help channel of the PvMe Discord server for all your PvM inquiries! #pvm-help

Skilling Goals

⬥ There are many Skills in Runescape that are not direct combat skills, but that greatly impact your combat prowess through prayers, potions, perks, familiars, and relics. We covered these in #noncombat-skilling-guide. This page is relevant for New to PvM as well as New to Bossing readers.

Early Money making coins

Training buyable skills and upgrading your gear can be expensive, but there are money making methods that are effective even as a lower-level player. These are just a few methods you can try out - there are a lot more methods in the game for you to explore.
