The profit rate assumes 11 kills per hour at 100% enrage with no streak. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed, enrage, and streak.

Any combat style can be used, as Telos is equally weak to all forms of combat. Telos has very high accuracy, capable of hitting through tier 92 armour quite frequently. For beginners and high enrage kills, magic is the best combat style against Telos. For experienced players, melee and ranged can be used instead, although magic is still the most dominant combat style.

The most prioritised auras should be the berserker auras (Reckless, Berserker and Maniacal), as they provide the most accuracy bonus against Telos in addition to increased damage. Despite the increased damage, it is vital to defeat Telos as quickly as possible. Most damage incurred can be countered with Soul Split and protection curse flicking, and any severe damage can be negated by using Resonance on his double tap attack. However, it is dangerous to use it on high enrage kills outside the player's comfort zone.

Behind these auras should be accuracy auras (Sharpshooter, Runic and Brawler). These auras add accuracy (3-10% depending on level) and do not reduce the player's defence nor make them incur more damage. However, these auras do not apply a bonus like the Berserker auras and do not deal extra damage, meaning that the player's accuracy and damage output will be significantly lower. These auras are best used when climbing enrage and practicing on those levels until the player is comfortable with using a berserker aura.

Do not fight Telos without either of these auras, as doing so results in significantly slower kills and far higher difficulty due to Telos' defence level of 80 with 40 affinity, often resulting in numerous missed attacks. Even with a berserker aura, it's still possible to miss with a tier 92 weapon, tier 99 curse, overload and nihil.
