Disclaimer

Before looking here, check #Free Upgrades.

Priorities can of course change depending on the content being done by the player. You should note that when you upgrade weapons, you can sell the weapon being upgraded to deduct cost from the new weapon.

If an item is not in the order it was deemed not worth buying.

As prices change, updates occur, and knowledge expands, the order is subject to change at any time.

Feel free to ask in #pvm-help for a tailored list for the content that you do!

Early Money Making

To make money to fund your first style early on, it is recommended to do either Croesus or easy clue scrolls.

Magic Upgrade Order

This is a generalised order which assumes a starting point of T70 weapons and armour.

For further information on each upgrade check the relevant section in #armour-and-weapons, #perks and #perk-information, #permanent-unlocks, or #eof-specs.

If you would like specialised advice, ask in #pvm-help.
