Optimal PvM Perk Setup/Advanced weapon perks

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to: navigation, search

The placement of the perks on the weapons are placed in such a way so as to maintain Aftershock stacks while also giving high damage output for certain abilities that can make use the Flanking and Lunging perks. Certain perks, such as Ruthless, are placed on weapons for situations where it would make sense to have (such as the Elite Dungeons).

Certain weapons, such as the Seren godbow, are perked in such a way to make use of their special attack. Because the Seren godbow in this setup is primarily used for the special attack, it is considered a switch and therefore only Aftershock 1 is placed on it in order to not lose stacks (and is also why the highest ranks of Precise and Equilibrium are on the weapon).

Precise.pngPerk rank 6.pngPrecise 6
Ruthless.pngPerk rank 1.pngRuthless 1
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 56.39%
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 4.pngAftershock 4
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 2.pngEquilibrium 2
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 29.55%
Chance of getting at least Aftershock 4 is 85.26%. Alternative combos for Precise 6, Ruthless 1 could involve:


If Invigorating 4 is not used on an Armour gizmo, a slightly better (but harder to obtain) combination, without Ruthless, would be:


An alternative combination involving Equilibrium 1 using failed Aftershock 4, Equilibrium 2 rolls:

Precise.pngPerk rank 6.pngPrecise 6
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 1.pngAftershock 1
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 59.93%
N/A This setup allows one to get Precise 6 on all Flank/Defender/Shield damage, while also maintaining Aftershock stacks even when using a switch.
Allows for effective Precise 6 + Equilibrium 2 + Aftershock 4 and is considerably cheaper than attempting to get Precise 6, Equilibrium 2 on one gizmo.
Off-hand

Aftershock.pngPerk rank 4.pngAftershock 4
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 2.pngEquilibrium 2

N/A Chance of getting at least Aftershock 4 is 85.26%.

Alternative combos could involve (Kalphite defender):


Alternative combos could involve (Kalphite repriser):

Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 4.pngEquilibrium 4
Ruthless.pngPerk rank 3.pngRuthless 3
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 5.198%
N/A For situations where Ruthless is beneficial.

Alternative combos could involve (Kalphite rebounder):

Flanking

Flanking.pngPerk rank 4.pngFlanking 4
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 1.pngEquilibrium 1
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 4.801%
N/A Flanking 4 by itself has the highest chance (81.56%) at levels 52/53.

Flanking 4, Equilibrium 2 exists (0.3057%), but is about 16 times rarer than Flanking 4, Equilibrium 1.

Lunging

Precise.pngPerk rank 6.pngPrecise 6
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 1.pngAftershock 1
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 59.93%
Lunging.pngPerk rank 4.pngLunging 4
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 2.pngEquilibrium 2
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 30.65%
For bleeds (Dismember, Slaughter, Blood Tendrils) as well as two-handed autos and Cleave. If only used for bleeds, an alternative combo would be:
Planted Feet

Planted Feet.pngPlanted Feet
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 1.pngAftershock 1
Weapon gizmo.png Probability: 100%
N/A The Ancient lantern only needs:


If one's Plantet Feet switch does not need get rid of Aftershock stacks and one is in a situation where Caroming is beneficial, an alternative combination is:

Seren godbow
Augmented Seren godbow.png: RS3 Inventory image of Augmented Seren godbow
Precise.pngPerk rank 6.pngPrecise 6
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 1.pngAftershock 1
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 59.93%
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 4.pngEquilibrium 4
Ruthless.pngPerk rank 3.pngRuthless 3
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 5.198%
Ruthless is not necessarily needed.
Chance of getting at least Equibrium 4 is 98.16%.

Because the Seren godbow in this setup is primarily used for its special attack, it is considered a switch and therefore only Aftershock 1 is placed on it in order to not lose stacks. For this same reasoning, the highest ranks of Precise and Equilibrium are placed on the weapon.

Noxious scythe
Augmented noxious scythe.png: RS3 Inventory image of Augmented noxious scythe
Aftershock.pngPerk rank 4.pngAftershock 4
Precise.pngPerk rank 2.pngPrecise 2
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 54.51%
Equilibrium.pngPerk rank 4.pngEquilibrium 4
Ruthless.pngPerk rank 3.pngRuthless 3
Ancient weapon gizmo.png Probability: 5.198%
For a cheaper combination and comparable (though less) damage in place of Aftershock 4, Precise 2:


If the Noxious scythe is used in situations where one cannot make as much use of Ruthless stacks, then a better combination would be:

Dark bow
