Introduction

This channel lists the general list of free and skilling upgrades.

Disclaimer

These are worth looking at before looking at style specific upgrade orders.

As prices change, updates occur, and knowledge expands, other unlocks may be added to this list at any time.

Feel free to ask in #pvm-help if unsure where upgrades are relevent for content that you do!

Early Money Making

To make money to fund your skilling early on, it is recommended to do either Croesus or easy clue scrolls. However it is worth noting many of the skills listed here can be trained for a profit.
