All The Preparation You Need To Get Into PVM In RuneScape 3

In recent years, the information available to players who want to learn PVM has improved dramatically. The increase in information makes PVM more accessible to players. But meanwhile, Combat system itself and the bosses released have become increasingly complex.

For players who want to get into PVM, this can be extremely difficult. Because the amount of information to learn can be daunting, and it's hard to understand where to start. So in this guide, I want to share my advice on how to get started with PVM.

All The Preparation You Need To Get Into PVM In RuneScape 3

Before Entering

Before getting into the specific steps, I want you to remember three things.

First, you don’t need the best gear to get started. As with most bosses you’ll face, there’s a lot of leeway in the equipment you can use. You can often take on the same bosses with much lower gear, especially if you’re taking on “novice” or “intermediate” bosses.

High-level PVM players are looking for the fastest, most efficient kills, but you don’t have to do that when you first start learning. Your goal is just to improve your PVM skills and get kills. If you try to wait until you have all the best gear, you’ll never start PVM.

Second, don’t worry about death. As a PVM player, you need to accept death. The penalty for death is no longer as harsh as it once was, and all you have to do is pay a few RS3 Gold

Third, don’t be overwhelmed. Actions speak louder than thoughts. From boss mechanics to ability rotations, there’s going to be a lot of information here. But sometimes, things don’t make sense unless you’re in the fight. Similar to gear, if you wait until you know everything about bosses and PVM, you’ll never get started.

PvM Tips & Tricks for Runescape 3

With these general suggestions out of the way, let’s talk about how to actually get into PVM.

Combat Styles

First, we need to decide which Combat Style to use. You should eventually learn all Combat Styles, but which starting Combat Style you choose will help you become familiar with the combat mechanics.

While the game has reached the point where most bosses can be completed with any style, certain Combat Styles will make certain bosses easier.

I’m assuming here that you don’t have a specific boss goal in mind. Here, I would recommend Necromancy as your starting style. Compared with other styles, Necromancy is relatively simple and the equipment is easier to get. Plus, its damage output is currently insane. This means you’ll have a better time learning PVM using Necromancy.

If you don’t want to use Necromancy, my second choice would be Magic because of its versatility and utility in many bosses.

The style I don’t recommend you learn is Melee. While Melee is powerful in certain situations, it lacks range and must be right next to a boss to attack, making it a hard style for beginners.

Not to mention that Melee’s ultimate ability, Berserk, requires you to take more damage in order to deal more damage. While this is great for experienced PVM players, for beginners, the extra damage you take can be downright scary.

Runescape 3 PVM Meta: Which Combat Style Should You Pick?


Now that we have selected Combat Style, we need to prepare ourselves. Having decent gear will change your PVM experience.

While you don’t need to have the best gear here, you shouldn’t skip getting decent gear and go straight to the boss. Having the right gear will make your experience much easier.

Weapons have the greatest impact on your combat experience, as the differences between each weapon class are usually more noticeable than armor. For Necromancy, this means we should go for the highest level Death Guard and Skull Lantern.

Once you have your weapons, you’ll also need some armor. While Power Armor is usually preferred, at this point either Power or Tank Armor will do, it just depends on what you can get. Of course, make sure the armor you get is the same style as your weapon, as there are severe penalties for using the wrong armor style.

Finally, you can use invention and enhance your equipment with some beginner perks. Again, similar to upgrade priority, if you need a choice, choose to upgrade your weapons first.

Boss Tips

Once we had our gear sorted, we moved on to the hardest part, the actual PVM.

Now I will divide the boss’ learning into two parts, learning the combat mechanism and the boss mechanism. Combat mechanics include what abilities to use, your key bindings, managing your potions and food, and more. Boss mechanics include understanding and responding to boss attacks.

You need to learn both, but you’ll have a hard time learning both at the same time. Therefore, we first need to decide what we want to learn.

I think it makes the most sense to improve the combat mechanics first. Being slightly familiar with the combat mechanics can make the boss’ learning process faster and easier.

Runescape 3: How to Learn Any Boss Tips & Tricks?

Combat Mechanics

For combat mechanics, I recommend arranging the keys in order first. The keys you need to bind are your Prayer, Food and Saradomin Brew, and Shield Switch.

If you set up key bindings from the start, it also means you don’t need to rebind and forget your PVM habits later. However, I would like to point out that this step is completely optional.

Once you have a combat setup, you could take that setup to something as simple as Slayer to test it out. After a few Slayer missions, you should be happy with your setup, which you can then apply to the actual boss.

Boss Mechanic

For boss mechanics, my suggestion is to start with a simple solo boss. I think Zamorak boss in God Wars Dungeon, K’ril Tsutsaroth, is a good choice.

K’ril is a fairly simple boss with a special attack that drains a lot of your health. Use K’ril to continue practicing your combat mechanics while also tackling boss fights more easily.

If you think K’ril is too easy, you can challenge God Wars Dungeon 2 boss, Vindicta. Vindicta has quite a few mechanics that require you to react and move when needed.

Once you’re familiar with killing Vindicta, you can further refine your combat mechanics. The first thing you need to do is add an Adrenaline Potion to your inventory, and learn ultimate rotation. Using ultimate rotation is key in all PVM fights to maximize the damage you do in that time frame.

Once you’re satisfied with ultimate rotation and killing Vindicta, you can move on to challenge Helwyr. Helwyr requires you to use some defensive measures, as well as bind a shield.

Once you’re able to consistently kill Helwyr and Vindicta, you could start to feel more comfortable with your combat abilities. At this point, you should also be able to make some money with these two bosses, so you can consider upgrading your gear.

At this stage, you should be able to deal with decent damage while also being able to deal with the boss’ mechanics effectively.

The Ultimate Runescape 3 PvM Guide

If you do wish to continue improving your abilities, I suggest the next steps are to kill Araxxor, then Telos. Both bosses will teach you how to better use defenses, how to prayer flick, and how to deal with multiple boss stages with different and more complex mechanics.

Note that Araxxor is a pretty big step up from Helwyr. If you get stuck, you can use Arch-Glacor and Kerapac as an intermediate step to get more PVM experience. Both bosses are available in normal and hard modes, so you can start off easy and increase the difficulty as needed.

I believe that if you can kill Araxxor and Telos, you can kill every boss in the game. If you’re starting over, here’s everything you need to know about starting PVM in 2024. I hope this PVM guide is helpful to you.
