Overview[edit | edit source]

The purpose of this page is to provide the player with multiple tiers of effective PvM perks which can be used for both slayer and bossing. The tiers are organised based on the total cost, as higher end perks like Aftershock.png: RS3 Inventory image of AftershockAftershock and Biting.png: RS3 Inventory image of BitingBiting have a much larger cost and therefore approachable only at higher levels of investment. Augmented and perked gear greatly increase the damage dealt and thus increase overall profit per hour for any combat activity.

This page intentionally does not list the "best in slot" perks, which can be found at Optimal PvM perk setup.
