Alternative Methods



Instead of camping a monster till you get a specific level, you can choose to do Slayer all the way up to 99. It is recommended that you start this method starting at level 60 Ranged. You can use a Slayer helmet when you are killing a monster on task, which greatly boosts your damage and accuracy, increasing your experience rates.

AFK Waterfiends

This is a high level method which requires level 92 Prayer for Soul Split and level 96 Herblore for overloads. You will need at least tier 70 armour and tier 80 weapons and if possible the use of a Geyser titan is quite useful. Here is what you need to bring per trip:

  • 20 Prayer potions
  • 4 Overloads
  • 2 Geyser titan pouches
  • 2 Sharks

You can AFK these monsters at Ghorrock. Monster aggression timer is 10 minutes so when they become unagressive towards you run away from them and come back to reset the timer.

EXP/H: 450K - Not AFKing
EXP/H: 350K - Total AFKing

Abyssal Training

This is the best way to gain AFK Ranged experience in the game. The south-west and south-east corners of the abyss have 15+ creatures that are aggressive. 

For items, use red chincompas alongside an off hand Armadyl crossbow, blood amulet, power armour and a grand ranging potion or better.

To gain the full benefits use Revolution++ with the following bar:

  1. Corruption Shot
  2. Death's Swiftness
  3. Bombardment
  4. Deadshot
  5. Fragmentation Shot
  6. Needle Strike
  7. Binding Shot
EXP/H: 700K
