Shattered Relics League/Guide
|Shattered Relics League|
Shattered Relics League presents unique decisions and challenges unlike most content in Old School RuneScape and previous leagues. Since players are restricted to the skills and bosses they have unlocked, there are many strategic options. This guide provides information about the league mechanics, different training methods, and money making guides based on the constraints within the league.
Getting started[edit | edit source]
When players first begin the league, The Sage will lead them through the River of Souls to the starting spawn of Catherby. After a tutorial, all areas of the game will be accessible as normal. Most bosses and skills will be locked at the start and can be unlocked with Sage's Renown, obtained by completing league tasks. All players will start with Defence, Thieving, and Fishing unlocked, with a choice of one more combat skill (not including Hitpoints, Prayer or Strength).
Getting around[edit | edit source]
- Al Kharid
- Ferox Enclave
This is the order in which they appear in the menu, and can be selected with the corresponding key (substituting A-C for 10-12).
Restricted content[edit | edit source]
Skills[edit | edit source]
Locked skills can be trained, but no experience will be granted. For example, players can chop a log without woodcutting unlocked due to it being a level 1 action. Locked skills can also be boosted to beyond level 1. The cost to unlock all skills is 190 Sage's Renown.
Bosses[edit | edit source]
With the exception of the Wilderness, most bosses are locked, requiring Sage's Renown to unlock their content.
|King Black Dragon||10|
|Thermonuclear smoke devil||20|
|Chambers of Xeric||35|
|Theatre of Blood||35|
Quests[edit | edit source]
Quests may either be completed in the conventional manner, or auto-completed for Sage's Renown.
Relics and fragments[edit | edit source]
Boosted Drops[edit | edit source]
As fragment slots are unlocked, passive bonuses will activate. Specific items will received boosted drop rates. Rates begin at 1x, increase to 2x when Tier IV is unlocked, and continue to 3x when Tier VI is unlocked.
Skill training[edit | edit source]
Other than the starting skills, Defence, Thieving, and Fishing, skills must be unlocked before they can be trained. Once unlocked, training skills may be very similar to regular ironman methods. Fragments can be found for specific skills by gaining experience in that skill.
See the following unlock costs and guide for each skill:
Money making[edit | edit source]
|Stealing from H.A.M. storeroom||20 , food, completed at least half of Death to the Dorgeshuun||Skilling||After completing half of Death to the Dorgeshuun, players have access to the H.A.M. storerooms. There, one is able to pickpocket guards that commonly give keys to chests which provide fairly good jewellery. Bank or high alch the loot obtained and make sure to save some of the emerald rings and sapphire necklaces for personal use. This is considered the best low level method for ironmen and is highly recommended.
(wearing full H.A.M. robes helps reduce the chance of being kicked out when in the H.A.M. Hideout, but players will never be kicked out in the storeroom area so Rogue's equipment is recommended to potentially double the rate of keys).
|Stealing silk||20||Skilling||Silk can be stolen from the stalls in the Ardougne market. After waiting 20 minutes the stolen silk can be sold to the Silk merchant (located in the market) for 60 coins each.|
|Agility Pyramid|| 30
|Minigame||The Agility Pyramid can be unlocked at 30 Agility, however, 70 is recommended as obstacle fail rates are drastically reduced. Players can make up to around 200,000 coins per hour.
Because most of the activity involves running around, you may want to bring supplies to train other skills, such as high alching noted items or fletching darts. To avoid alching your pyramid tops, surround the items you want to alch with waterskins or choc-ices.
This method requires no banking and does not suffer greatly from not having an empty inventory. It is one of the most reliable methods for early game.
|Pickpocketing Knights of Ardougne|| 55 (95+ Recommended)
Completion of the medium tasks of the Ardougne Diary
Full rogue equipment
|Skilling||Pickpocketing Knights of Ardougne is an easier and slightly more profitable alternative to blackjacking, but it also has higher requirements. From level 95 onwards, players can make up to around 270,000–280,000 coins per hour.
More information about pickpocketing Knights of Ardougne can be found here.
|Killing Lava Dragons with Fire Strike||13||Combat||Lava dragons can be killed easily and early on with combat magic spells. They commonly drop a variety of rune and adamant equipment which can be alched or sold to a general store.|
