Assuming an average of roughly between five-minute and 10-minute trips and five deaths per hour, killing revenants (also assuming 40 kills per hour) in the Revenant Caves can generate profits ranging from hundreds of thousands to millions of GP, depending on luck, skill and PVP activity. Always keeping minimal risk in the Wilderness, players' main gear setup should consist of only three items (or four with Protect Item), such as a helm, black dragonhide body, legs and Ranged weapon, in addition to the necessary items: a bracelet of ethereum, burning amulet and a means of teleportation.

The royal seed pod and any charged dragonstone jewellery are capable of teleporting non-teleblocked players to safety at level 30 Wilderness or below, and the former can be easily re-obtained. Since death is inevitable, spare bracelets, amulets, and ether are recommended to have in the bank. 50 ether for the bracelet will suffice as adding more results in greater costs, and the bracelet has the ability to absorb ether automatically from defeated revenants, which is recommended.

Craw's bow requires 1,000 ether to charge plus additional ether for usage; no more than 200 is necessary per trip for a total of 1,200 ether, assuming no deaths. Otherwise, the bow will have to be recharged and reloaded. A cheaper alternative is using a toxic blowpipe loaded with adamant darts, albeit less kills and less profit.

Although this activity can be one of the most lucrative sources of income for all players who survive being intercepted and interrupted by player killers, it is more beneficial for higher-level players. Dinh's bulwark provides huge defensive bonuses for tanking while escaping player killers, and having all protection prayers available at 43 Prayer and accessing the level 89 shortcut increase the chances of survival. Since they usually start attacking with Magic, it is strongly advised to set Protect from Magic and Protect Item as quick prayers before heading to the caves and switch overheads according to their attacks. Also, Augury or Mystic Might could help boost up defences further. With that said, it is not recommended to exhaust all prayer points; reserving some prayer and a few extra doses of prayer restore could save players from being smited.

Furthermore, at 89 Agility, players can teleport to Bandit Camp and use the shortcut, leading directly to the revenants rather than taking the more dangerous Lava Maze path. Nonetheless, as players using burning amulets will encounter green dragons, an anti-dragon shield is strongly recommended, especially for lower-level players.
