This purpose of this page is to provide the player with optimized relic powers for PvM such as bossing and Slayer. This covers the following cases of maximum monolith energy:

Details about how to unlock any specific relic power can be found on their respective pages.

PvM[edit | edit source]

These combinations will include up to at most 500 Relic power.png: RS3 Inventory image of Relic power monolith energy.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ The Conservation of Energy relic power has a similar effect to Heightened Senses (and has the same monolith energy cost of 350); its description is "After using an ultimate ability, you will regain 10% adrenaline". This effect stacks with the ring of vigour for ultimate abilities (but unlike the ring of vigour, it does not work with special attacks). This relic power may be useful for situations where one wants to start with more adrenaline after using an ultimate without having the option or the time to reach the 110% adrenaline that Heightened Senses allows for to achieve the same result.
