Onyx

  • If you're an Onyx player, you can 100% get your cape as a mid to late-midgame player.
  • This guide is meant to teach you how to complete the Inferno on BOTH Onyx and OSRS.
  • If you prepare for OSRS seriously, you'll shred Onyx. Simple as that.
  • You, I'm not worried about.

 

OSRS

  • Now, onto the OSRS player.
  • TRIGGER WARNING -- SPOILER IS NOT FOR THE MILLENNIAL-MINDED:
Spoiler

 

  • The Inferno is the most challenging content on Old School RuneScape.
  • Only the most dedicated, most skilled players have this cape. Unless it was bought.
  • For me, it was dedicationI assure you. I'm almost 30. My mechanics are mediocre.
  • Some players are so mechanically skilled, they can just do it.
  • Boy, that wasn't my path. I sweated my ass off, getting murked.

 

  • But if you come to our server then say, "LOL I CBA to spend 2-3 hours to get the stats/gear required for Onyx".
  • If 2-3 hours bothers you, keep in mind that this is the amount of time PER ATTEMPT on OSRS (for a beginner).
  • If that's your mentality, then you've adopted a loser's mentality.
  • Good news for me, who doesn't want to see lots of undeserved capes, you'll be a loser until you get your mind right.

 

  • That's why people who've caped enjoy hearing "I made it to Zuk a few times" from people without capes.
  • Translation: You died in the early waves. You weren't disciplined enough to learn mechanics.

 

  • Funny how your career and the real world are the same: A GRIND.
  • Put in the time or be put on the floor.
  • Sorry if that wasn't taught to you in school; I swear to you that it's true.

  • SET KEYBINDS! (Personally, I use the ones shown above).
  • SWITCH TO ANCIENT SPELLBOOK & PRAYERS (CURSES DISABLED HERE!).
  • Ensure that your Rune Pouch has enough runes!

 

  • Stats: Max them if possible. MINIMUM: 90+ in Ranged, Defence, Prayer.
  • Gear: Written below in "Gear" Section. 

 

  • Access:
  • In order to access the Inferno, players must have 1 Fight Caves "KC". 
  • This is a 5 minute commitment, if even that. Type ::fightcaves in game.
  • Test Mode DOES count for the KC you would need to access Inferno (Wave 62 spawn, Wave 63 Jad).

  • SET KEYBINDS! (Personally, I use the ones shown above).
  • SWITCH TO ANCIENT SPELLBOOK!
  • Ensure that your Rune Pouch has enough runes! (Rune Pouch interface different on OSRS).

 

  • Stats: Max them if possible. MINIMUM: 90+ in Ranged, Defence, Prayer.
  • Gear: Written below in "Gear" Section.

 

  • Access:
  • In order to access the Inferno, players must give TzHaar-Ket-Keh a Fire Cape for access to Mor Ul Rek.
  • This is a one-time fee, so after giving a fire cape to him, TzHaar-Ket-Keh will allow players to enter as much as they want. 
  • See Mor Ul Rek city map below.

  • Type ::inferno.
  • There is a banker directly outside.
  • You can bonfire here, pre-pot, etc.

  • Mor Ul Rek:
  • You start in the purple location (Fairy Ring code = BLP).
  • Run to Green in order to pre-pot, etc.
  • Run to Blue in order to enter.

This is the meta. You DO NOT need this gear!

  • Midgame Players: Arma / Subjugation + CCB / Chaotic Staff = FINE!
  • Enhanced Excalibur: 
  • STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! Heal 60 every 3 minutes! Absolutely INSANE slot efficiency!
  • Complete all Elite Tasks to acquire this BEAST of a spec weapon.
  • Here's a How-To on getting your hands on it:

 

 

 

 

OSRS

  • Max it if possible.  MINIMUM: Karil's/Ahrim's/Verac's (tier 2, above). BIS unless you are GOOD.
  • This is the only PvM challenge that, in my opinion, is worth grinding up to get Gear for.
  • Inferno's not like the rest of the game. You'll get owned if ungeared.

Soulgazer, what's your credibility? And what's this video?

Spoiler

 

  • I currently have the inferno KC record on Onyx. Haven't failed an attempt in weeks.
  • Know that Onyx Inferno is easier than OSRS Inferno.
  • That being said, if you learn OSRS mechanics, you'll be in a much, much stronger position.
  • This is over-preparation. Translation: How you'll get your cape.

 

 

Watch this video and THEN read the Onyx-Specific Mechanics

 

Onyx-Specific Mechanics -- READ THIS

Spoiler

 

  • [Caption Obvious] On Onyx, you have access to more powerful gear.
  • This needs to be explicitly stated. The Twisted Bow Mk 2, even post-nerf, is monsterously strong.
  • You can shred Magers, Jads, Zuk with this weapon of mass destruction.
  • Furthermore, as mentioned in Gear section, enhanced excalibur = OP!

 

  • On Onyx, you have the luxury of switching to the correct prayer before the enemy projectile lands!
  • This means that it is much easier to protect against, say, Ranger / Magers.
  • Additionally, blobs are much easier to pray against.

image.png.a6ba2d6f8663b71c812ecca9b8f5b9c2.png

 

  • On Onyx, Meleers do NOT dig! They are also easily safespotted.
  • Due to this, the desirable starting position that Xzact mentions in the video is slightly modified.
  • I usually start waves by running from the Blue square to either of the Red Squares.
  • The further back Red Square can be used to attack the Safespotted Meleers.
  • This is EXTREMELY helpful for waves with Meleers.

 

  • On Onyx, Magers do NOT revive other monsters!
  • This is HUGE, cutting down the total amount of time needed to complete The Inferno.

 

  • On Onyx, Zuk Healers do NO damage to you!
  • This is HUGE, as those little devils usually end runs and require the player to use Redemption Prayer!

 

  • On Onyx, Inferno Monster Spawn Aggression is more forgiving.
  • This is HUGE, as monsters do NOT necessarily attack at the same time upon spawning.
  • This gives you ample seconds to run accordingly behind the pillar.

 

 

 

OSRS

Spoiler

 

What does Onyx provide you?

Spoiler

 

  • Onyx is nice in that it has the ability to skip to the latter-most waves.
  • Usually, you will need to fight your way up to the Triple Jads (Wave 68).
  • However, you can skip DIRECTLY to Wave 66 (2x Magers).
  • This gives you the opportunity to get accustomed to Zuk.
  • Personally, I wouldn't gear up all the way. Make it harder on yourself. More beneficial that way.

 

  • Onyx cannot fully prepare you for OSRS.
  • But if you did 3x Jads, Zuk, say, 10 times in a row flawlessly...
  • While remembering to prayer switch appropriately for OSRS...
  • This would give you an idea of how to pace yourself during that fight -- the cadence of it.
  • I think that it would be useful for a beginner to use Onyx to get their feet wet.

 

 

Soulgazer, what's your credibility? And what's this video?

Spoiler

 

  • The inferno cape in the header of this guide is my own. Plucked it out of a screenie walking at the GE.
  • I've personally done 30+ infernos to ultimately complete it. It was painful, I'll admit.
  • I assure you, this video that I've posted below cannot be beaten.
  • Xzact, the author, holds the record for the lowest inferno cape at combat level 40.
