General 1t Boss Tips


This channel will cover general tips, tricks and mechanics that are used throughout the 1 tick boss kill guides. It is recommended you read over this before attempting advanced 1t boss kills, however you will still be fine to attempt more basic 1t kills with very little info from this channel.

1 tick boss kills are defined and graded here, and you can submit your 1t kills to PvM Records to fill in your profile!

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• While we will often refer to these as 1t kills, they are actually tick perfect. Due to phase transition and spawning animations these can often be more than 1 tick long.

⬥ A lot of these 1t boss kills can be very RNG reliant, or difficult to execute. Try not to get disheartened if a certain kill is taking a long time, but do submit attempts to #vod-reviews if you are not sure if you are doing the kill correctly. This will allow more experienced 1t killers to help you find your mistakes.

General Recommendations

⬥ Always use a Kal'gerion Demon kalgscroll, you want as much crit chance as possible.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• If using Dragon Battleaxe dba spec you can use your Kalg spec at any point after this, and it will last long enough

⬥ If meleeing try to input an extra Gmaul gmaul eofspec or two if you are comfortable to take advantage of relentless procs.

⬥ Using the Berserker's Fury berserkersfury and lowering your HP using onsl or shadowtend initially, and then zamorakbrew or dwarvenrockcake to get it lower. Sitting at the lowest HP you are comfortable at provides a noticeable damage increase.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• To increase safety ensure to always have disruption shield disrupt up.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Maintaining low health is easier while NOT having the constitution skillcape perk active.

⬥ For more complex builds avoid clicking items out of your inventory as this will cancel charging adrenaline from the crystals

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• The items can either be keybound or clicked off a bar


To effectively go for 1 tick kills you will most likely have to mess up some of your bars and ability bindings. It is highly recommended to take a screenshot of your bars and binds before and after doing this for reference.

⬥ Changing binds allows you to set inputs that need to be done rapidly close together (e.g. qwert or asdfghj) so that you can click them easier or run your finger across the keyboard to click them.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This can make the inputs required for a kill significantly easier.

Berserker Blood Essence

Berserker blood essence berserkerbloodess is very good for short speed kills as it allows for higher strength level boosts than an overload

⬥ +36 strength level bonus for 20s compared to +31 from elderovl and berserker

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• As you are not overloaded, you will want to use the berserker prayer to extend these stat boost.


To get the largest boosts from berserkerbloodess for melee, you will need to pair it with Super Warmaster Potion supremewarmasters, an extreme attack potion, and DBA dba spec

The order of actions to get these boosts is as follows

⬥ Drink the Super Warmaster Potion supremewarmasters just before you DBA dba spec

⬥ DBA spec dba spec

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This drains your non strength combat stats

⬥ Drink Extreme Attack to boost your hitchance (This is not always needed depending on the boss)

⬥ Activate berserkerbloodess just before your kill, then equip and activate Grimoire grim

Note: if on berserker drink restore before supremewarmasters


To get the largest boosts from berserkerbloodess for ranged, you will need to pair it with a Supreme Ranging Potion supremeranging

The order of actions to get these boosts is as follows

⬥ Drink the Supreme Ranging Potion supremeranging

⬥ Activate berserkerbloodess just before your kill, then equip and activate Grimoire grim

If you need to go through an area where you may get attacked, it is beneficial to equip a different pocket slot to stop the passive effect of the Blood essence activating as this stops you using the active. When needing to use the essence you should equip and use it in 1 tick to ensure it activates.

Examples of this include

⬥ GWD1

⬥ GWD2

⬥ ED2

Note: Berserker blood essence is not needed for lower end 1t kills (such as NM Graardor, NM K'ril, NM Zilyana and KBD) however it will still help

General GWD1 Tips

⬥ Ensure you have the Stone of Jas buff active if you have it unlocked

⬥ Equip shard of zaros to stop the portal warning screen and stop yourself getting attacked

⬥ When doing K'ril your prayer will be drained upon portal entry. Drink some form of prayer potion and reactivate your prayers

⬥ Minions spawn 1 tick after the bosses. If you end up targeting a minion you will have target cycled at least 1 tick late

⬥ If doing the no prep Kree 1 tick method you will need to use backwards tc to avoid going onto your dummy
