Techniques

In the south-west and south-east corners there are 15+ creatures that are aggressive and will attack the player upon respawn. There is a world-hopping safespot in the far south-west corner behind a tendril the player can use to easily find free worlds. The creatures become non-aggressive after 10 minutes. To reset the aggression timer simply run away and come back. To siphon your equipment for Invention, players can also run to the far south-west corner behind a tendril and siphon without being interrupted.

  • To prevent other players from crashing your world, players may also bring an Oldak coil to place that will use AoE damage on the creatures.
  • Corruption shot and Corruption blast are critical for mage and range training. It increases exp/hour by 28%.
  • Blood Amulet of Fury or Bunyip is enough to heal for a complete AFK experience.
  • Bring a charming imp. Have him eat the abyssal, gold, green charms for easy summoning exp. The monsters drop ludicrous amounts of charms due to the sheer volume of kills per hour.

A quick method of banking is to run to the safe spot to the south-west corner and teleport to Edgeville, or players with a Max cape or Completionist cape may teleport to the Max Guild. It is recommended to have a bank preset already created for your inventory, as well as having your weapons bound to actionbars in order to gear quickly.
