The profit rate assumes 1000 kills per hour but its possible to get 1200 kills per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed.

Members of the Order of Ascension are killed for their ascension keystone drops. Capsarii are even easier to kill than the Rorarii with even lower health and damage, so players may obtain higher kill rates compared to Rorarii. Death is also extremely unlikely compared to Rorarii given their extremely low damage.

Unfortunately, compared to the other two members, Capsarii are barely found in large numbers and fairly spread apart across the dungeon. At most, there are only two areas with three spawns of Capsarii; the chamber south of Legio Primus' laboratory, and the area north of the ascended Guthix, both of which are surrounded by other members, which would make this money making method unviable.

For this reason, Capsarii souls are placed in the Sunken Pyramid for farming purposes; any room works, but the small room is the most optimal for collecting drops. The Sunken Pyramid allows the player to camp Capsarii without any competition, and provides access to five spawns. In order to access the Sunken Pyramid, the player must have 99 Slayer. If the player does not have the five Capsarii souls needed, then they can use another player's dungeon which has them as long as that person's private settings allow them to enter and both players are on the same world. However, as other players may also be using the dungeon, it's generally better to get the Capsarii souls yourself. The most ideal location to farm them is to continually sweep the south-western area of the Monastery, which contains seven fairly spaced Capsarii spawns but should be enough for any player to loop through them without world hopping.

When the Capsarii souls are collected (or if the player is using another player's dungeon), farming Capsarii is extremely simple. It is highly recommended to go into Legacy Mode while using a bow with no ammunition - such as a Zaryte bow, Decimation or Seren godbow and drink an aggression potion of any type. Legacy Mode increases the strength of your auto-attacks, and Capsarii will often die in a single hit to these weapons. Though a hexhunter bow provides a damage bonus against Capsarii, it is ill-advised due to its somewhat low damage output in Legacy Mode along with the cost of arrows. Using EoC mode allows for any ranged weapon to be used, but forces the player to pay more attention.

Augmented gear can be used with Precise 6, Equilibrium 4 and Ruthless 3 will ensure 1-hitting Capsarii most of the time. Damage-increasing armour perks generally do not increase the kill rate with higher-levelled weapons, but Scavenging can be used to collect components, Enhanced efficient can be used to lower charge drain rate, or Efficient can be used to increase XP Capacitor 5000 level rate.

A steel titan is recommended to speed up kills in the event that an attack does not kill a Capsarii in a single hit - scrolls are optional. The steel titan takes higher priority over other ranged familiars, as it possesses a Ranged level of 90, and any other familiar such as a shadow nihil can miss their hit. Make sure the titan is far from Capsarii so that it does not use its melee attack; recall the titan if necessary to move it out of melee range. The titan should also focus on capsarii with low health so a player auto-attack is not wasted on them. Note that the titan may focus on another target when attempting to change its target acquisition.

Players can easily keep their health high with the Vampyrism aura. If it is on cooldown, the blood amulet of fury also helps in keeping the player's health high. An enhanced excalibur can also be brought along for additional healing if the blood amulet is unable to keep the player's health high. Soul Split should be used if neither of these two options work, and simply flicking it ensures very little prayer points are used. If not using overloads, then standard range potions should be supplemented with the Berserker curse to slightly prolong its duration.

As little to no prayer is used, an ancient elven ritual shard may be brought along to restore any depleted prayer points.

Capsarii frequently drop various elemental battlestaves, medium adamant plated salvage and tiny spiky rune salvages, which often account for roughly 25-33% of the profit made. If a spring cleaner is taken, ensure it alchemises the aforementioned salvages, and toggle battlestaves off, as the alchemy value of the elemental battlestaff is 9,300 coins, while disassembly to base components will reduce the value of the battlestaff by almost 55%, as the spring cleaner will convert the resulting elemental orb into the respective elemental runes, cosmic runes and an unpowered orb, which yields very little money. A gold accumulator can also be taken to auto-collect coin drops, but is not mandatory. The remaining profit comes from the keystone drops. Pure essence, coal stone spirits, yew logs and unpowered orbs can be picked up but is generally not recommended as it slows kill rates.
