Some bosses are recommended to almost always be disabled based on their mechanics: Good, Elgar, Corrupt Lizard man, Chronology, and Barrel chest. Dream Mentor, Recipe for Disaster, and Desert Treasure should always be enabled when trying to maximize points per hour.

Moss Guardian, Dad, Ice Troll King, and ARR provide increased experience per damage dealt: 7.5%(4.3x), 10%(4.4x), 12.5%(4.5x) and 17.5%(4.7x) respectively. With Power Surge, use a special attack weapon such as dragon claws or granite maul with an ornate handle.

Pets can be useful in the arena because they can block and reduce the number of enemies in melee range, saving absorption potion points. Playing on normal difficulty is also an option, however the amount of time and money it takes to earn a sustainable amount of points will increase as well as some bosses like Ice Troll King and Jungle Demon using more attack styles than just melee making it harder to survive.

For hard endurance dreams, the following bosses require special mechanics or extra items brought with you, making it far less AFK: This setup uses a mix of strength and prayer bonus and is a fairly AFK strategy for experience and Nightmare points.

Activate Zapper and Recurrent Damage to increase points per hour, this may slightly affect experience gained.

Dark the Wretched's equipment with absorptions requires more attention than the other setups, but offers the fastest Attack and Strength experience of up to 180,000 experience per hour using dragon claws for special attacks during Power Surge, or up to 155,000 with a granite maul with an ornate handle. Drink prayer potions as needed, flick Rapid Heal on and off once every 50-60 seconds to avoid regenerating to 2 Hit points.

If your Hit points goes above 1, feel the locator orb or guzzle the dwarves rock cake, if it is not working run away temporarily. Activate Zapper and Recurrent Damage to increase points per hour, this may slightly affect experience gained only if you normally kill the bosses before new ones take their place.

Activate Power Surge, switch equipment and use your special attack weapon, it lasts 45 seconds.

Count Dray nor, Sand Snake, King Roald, The Kendal, and Me are the usual selection because they have lower defense but not extremely low Hit points. Using a locator orb or a dwarves rock cake is optional but allows for longer sessions, minimizing the amount of absorption points used to tank damage (especially using obsidian armor).

The toxic blowpipe is the best weapon use, but this is not recommended due to its significantly higher cost compared to other options. Players who need more defense can use a one-handed Ranged weapon (such as crossbow with broad bolts, or Mikhail darts) along with a tank shield, although this offers slightly less experience per hour.

The following bosses have long killed times and are recommended to be disabled unless you bring a Magic switch: I will show you how to get the maximum points, how to get the fastest XP, and how to AFK the longest.

Once you have done any of these 5, you unlock the Mini-game Teleport to the Nightmare, which is the fastest way there. The Mini-game takes you into dreams, where you are faced against Quest Bosses that you have already killed in the real game.

Easy gives the standard amount of points, and the Bosses are the same level as they were in the Quest. You need to store money in the coffin nearby in order to enter a dream.

The most expensive dream is a customizable Hard Rumble, which is the only game mode I really recommend playing. You should only ever choose Easy Rumble if you want to see what the Nightmare is like at a lower level.

You need to set a customized Hard Rumble by right-clicking and starting a dream, There is the White Ultimate Force, which should only ever be used if there is a Boss you simply cannot kill.

Then, there is Power Surge, which is extremely useful for fast XP, because it regenerates your Special Attack constantly for 45 seconds. Depending on your Combat level, it should take you around 30 minutes to one hour to get enough points for Absorption Potions.

You should aim to get at least around 70 000 points using Prayer Potions, and be sure to make good use of Zapper, Recurrent Damage and Power Surge. By using a Dwarves Rock Cake or a Locator Orb, you can lower your Hit points down to 1 so that the monsters attacking you can only ever hit a 1 on your absorption, making the damage last very, very long.

Even when you are trying to get the maximum points, you should deactivate the Corrupt Lizard man, which hits through absorption. In terms of gear for the maximum points, I recommend taking full Dark.

Your inventory should consist of your Special Attack weapon, a Rock cake or a Locator Orb, 4 Overloads, 4 – 8 Prayer Potions and the rest should be Absorptions. Upon entering, you will want to drink your Overload Potion and wait until it lowers you down.

Proceed to Rock Cake and Locator Orb down to 1 Hotpoint. To stay at 1 Hotpoint, you should be double-clicking the Rapid Heal Prayer every 40 – 50 seconds.

It is good to use Zapper and Recurrent Damage again to speed up your kills, as well as Power Surge with your Special Attack weapon. If you see Bosses like the Gelatinous Mother, or Fareed, you should try to use an Ultimate Force power-up to clear them out.

So, if you can, take a look at the list of Nightmare Quests that I showed before, and try to complete more Bosses. For the best XP rates, you will be using Prayer all the time, as well as Absorptions and Overloads.

Bands or Obsidian works for a lower level with Melee, or Ranged through Chinning or using a Blowpipe is very effective. Chinning, however, is a lot more expensive here compared to doing it at the Monkey Madness Caves.

To get the maximum XP, you should not get the Zapper, Recurrent Damage or the Ultimate Force power-up. With Ranged, Dragon Knives are now extremely OP in the Nightmare, as well as the Magic Short bow Special Attack.

Choosing the correct Bosses and using Dragon Claws, you can get over 150 000 Melee Combat XP per hour. With Ranged, you can reach similar XP rates with a Blowpipe and Chins.

Since you are healed 50 Hit points when the Overload runs out, you will get damaged a lot by the monsters around you since their max hit is no longer 1 or low. You can AFK far longer if you take Super Combat Potions instead of Overloads because you will not get that 50 Hotpoint boost after 5 minutes.

Although, over time, you will gain your Hit points back, you will still be able to AFK around 10 minutes before you should lower your health again, and re-drink Super Combat. Lastly, you can AFK for up to 20 minutes before stopping attacking with Nathans.

Honestly, if you are choosing to do Nathans, you are much better off going to Bandit Camp with a Sardonic or Zamora item for much cheaper and much more AFK training. You can imbue every Frederik and Wilderness Ring, and that doubles the stats of them.

You can imbue the Black Mask and Slayer Helmet as well, which adds a 15% damage and accuracy boost for Magic and Ranged as well. Lastly, you can imbue Crystal items to keep their stats at maximum, even as they are degrading.

Each day, you can collect a maximum of 15 Herb Boxes, costing 9 500 points each. That means that each day, you can profit almost 150 000 coins just by buying and opening the 15 herb Boxes.
