Here we are the first starter guide to get you on your way. *Some methods are due to change, as many patches are coming into the game. The Pre-game. Welcome to DarkScape. DarkScape has 3 Area's Low/Mid/Dangerous Low Threat- Tons of Guards, They patrol the streets of the cities, Banks and everywhere inbetween! Combat restrictions apply here, its like the wilderness system. Medium Threat- Guards are getting limited.. They're only in the banks and Major city areas. No combat restrictions are here BEWARE. Dangerous Area - NO GUARDS, NO COMBAT RESTRICTIONS ANYTHING GOES. CHAPTER 1: RIGHT OFF THE BAT Pick a world, and ignore everyone fighting, run into the Lumby swamp and start doing the prayer minigame Nexus. Take advantage of this. PROTECT ITEM IS YOUR FRIEND. Takes an hour and some to get 43 prayer, and the minigame caps your total exp gained at around lvl 50 [If you are members]. These are FREE prayer levels and will help you a ton from pesky raggers! CHAPTER 2:Where do I start? So, you're 25/43/50 prayer now and you don't know what to do. Recently the stronghold has been updated so its a (moderate safe area, ESPECIALLY AT LOW LEVELS) Run to Barb village and complete both of the security strongholds, this will start you with 20K! (If you make it out alive ) CHAPTER 3:Using the Wealth You now have 20,000 gold pieces, the thing you now need to do is *A- Test your luck at GE and snipe an Addy 2h for 5-7k *B- Home tele to burthorpe, take out 8k from the bank, and run northeast into the 2h shop buy it quick and book it back to the bank! You might be thinking why addy 2h? whats so special about that... You are in for a rude awakening. While you have the extra cash pick up a black/Steel 2h aswell from either the GE or 2h Shop. ( it will help you level faster) CHAPTER 4: Addy GodYou have hands down one of the best weapons in the game (for the time being) but you cant use it.... So start training, i'm gonna say with the exp boost this flies by! Use the training sword, and hopefully you picked up a steel/black 2h from the previous chapter to increase your DPS for faster training. The best training spots are Chickens, Seagulls, Rats, Cows. ~You can also get a training buddy and take turns killing eachother for amazing exp every 30 seconds Go flat attack. You do not need strength at this level to hit HARD all damage is based off of the stats of your weapon. Rush 40 attack (the level for addy weapons) and be amazed at how hard you hit! CHAPTER 5: UNSTOPPABLEDue to the recent update its hard to successfully destroy everyone in towns as GUARDS NOW SMITE So it's not worth it to PK in the Green Zone. It's time to have some fun. Head into the Red Zones (Karamja/Tzhaar/Seers/Ardy/Catherby) These area's only have guards in the banks, and city. THE OUTSKIRTS ARE WHERE YOU STAY. You can successfully 2-3hit pretty much everyone with the Addy 2h but don't get too close to the towns and WATCH YOUR PRAYER. CHAPTER 6: SMUGGLERS You have 3 combined banks in DarkScape, GREEN Threat/RED Threat/SKULL Threat (All 3 area's have their own economy and prices) THE TWO MAIN PLACES TO SUCCESSFULLY TRANSFER BETWEEN ECONOMIES. Transferring from Dangerous to Low Run from the wild down to edge Transferring from Medium to Low Al-Kharid to Lumby! These are the two main ways to go. Possibly the fastest to get your things into the Low area! CHAPTER 7: TzHaar Overlord Head over to Draynor, grab your Addy 2h and 30gp. Take the boat from Port Sarim over to Karamja, run up the Volcano and go into the Tzhaar city. Now its time to start farming Tzhaars and start training your Strength! Press Esc, go into game settings click Death Respawn Settings and convert your Mid Area Respawn to Tzhaar City. Now everytime you die here, you spawn here. Which is the best way to suicide farm these. TzHaars have about 300hp, and are easily 2 hittable (with some good RNG ) PICK UP ALL TOKKUL. Depending on the tokkul drops you will have enough tokkul to buy an obby maul within 1-2 hours. Only 75,000 tokkul is needed to buy the maul, and who knows you might even get one as a drop in the process! THIS MAUL IS CRAZY and requires 60 strength, hands down the best weapon for low levels. CHAPTER 8: A Week in So its now officially one week into darkscape, you have some decent stats, but are still lost on what to do.. Here are some answers of moneymaking and things you can do to have fun playing. -Warbands, Join "Darkscape" cc and look for people adverting warbands starting soon, hop to the world they say and meet at edgeville bridge. Warbands is an amazing moneymaker or exp (if you make it back alive) You can average up to 100k a trip in a matter of 2 mins! -Fishing -Lobsters have a high demand and are a low level fishing required to start getting them, If you fish on Karamja there is an NPC south of the volcano that notes all your fish FOR FREE! So if you want to take the risk and speed up your fishing this is the way to do it without banking! -Magic,(high alch) -Because the economy hasn't fully been developed in all three areas, you can find some good things to alch and make 1k+ profit per alch on most items! So try out some items and see what you can find! (i might release these items at a later date) -Merching -Merching is simple, because there are 3 different areas with 3 different prices you can buy things, don't be shy try and buy items for low prices! Sometimes you can get an easy snipe and flip it for a lot more than what you bought it for. Just because it doesn't buy for that price in the Low risk area doesn't mean it wont in the medium or high risk! Some people are just trying to dump their items for a quick buck. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS. -Zaros/Zammy Demon Flash Mobs -You might notice a world announcement of demons spawning in (edgeville, duel arena, toxic waste, ect) Get a bunch of your friends and GO TO THIS. Most people are friendly here as it's a level 200 boss with 31k hp! You are always given loot if you deal atleast 75 damage to it! JUST STAY ALIVE. AND DO NOT USE ANY PRAYERS AGAINST THIS. NONE! I can't stress this enough, the demon will lifesteal off your prayers and do AOE damage to all of the tanks/melee people attacking it! The loot from the flash mob is pretty good too, it drops d longs, noted yew logs, Demon Slayer range armour, rare Titles and alot more! Will add more soon!
