A race has been going on for years to find out how low combat level is needed to complete the Battle Caves. Now the question has finally been answered. You can complete the mini-game and get the Fire Cape straight from Tutorial Island! Of course, you'll need OSRS gold to collect all the Recoil Rings you need in the pursuit. There are also some prayer and even onion recovery potions that need to be dealt with. Anyway, here are some of the strategies Rendi used during his run to get the 3 Combat Fire Coat.
Island Manipulation Tutorial
From the very beginning, he only made the bare minimum to avoid the island. He even used alternate accounts to minimize the amount of XP he earned. He also did the One Little Favor quest until he could put Guthix to sleep.
Select the food
Tick ??Eating is how he got through the entire mini-game at the lowest possible level. For the uninitiated, the measure of game time is a checkmark. This is approximately one-sixth of a second, and all in-game actions follow this measure. This includes attacking, consuming food or drink, and even crafting items and catching fish!
A popular method of manipulating ticks is Prayer Flicking. Prayers do not start counting down until they are active for a full tick. By deactivating them and then reactivating them before being fully checked, you get the full benefits of prayer without spending a single point!
Tick ??Eating manipulates the damage calculation for ranged and magic attacks. Since they are calculated before the attack, you can replenish your health as soon as you get hit. This will allow you to survive otherwise fatal injuries.
Suppose you have one more HP and you are attacked by a mage. The moment their spell hits you, you eat healthy food. The attack will hit you for the one point you have left, but you have refilled your health so you will survive the hit.
This strategy (as with all character manipulation methods) is very click intensive. You are dealing with fractions of a second here (enter or take a few hundredths of a millisecond). It's an incredibly short time - and it requires focus and persistence.
While eating the ticks, the Ring of Torment charged with Knockback Rings is triggered. Although the damage is minor, Rendi never lost his concentration and made it to the end.
Shut down your shield!
Now has had trouble spawning melee enemies at level 180 in some waves. Melee hits are harder to tap because they have no delay. He also only has 10 hit points, while creatures go to 25. If he doesn't survive the attacks, Recoil attacks won't be made.
He then devised a way to strike melee blows by creating a delay. It jumps away from the enemy and then stacks the two interfaces on top of each other as they had to be closed before being hit by the attack. This is enough to slow down the attack of the tick by giving it a method.
However, this is still a problem as these enemies can heal themselves. Recoil damage is not high enough to overcome this skill. Poisoning them will give you XP, which runs counter to his goal of getting the Cloak as low as possible.
Thanks to a friend, he found a viable method. By luring and damaging another enemy, she can redirect healing to another enemy. Thus, both of the recoil loads shrink so slowly.
In fact, the method is more complicated. You should find a spot where you can safely spot both ranged enemies and 180 melee enemies. You'll then need to be within range of both enemies for attacks to continue while keeping enemy health at a low distance to redirect healing. It's a complicated dance where you have to eat ticks all the time.
For the remaining 180 enemies of the Melee Healer, Rendi uses Poison Spear to deal with them. He also uses the known Recoil Rings to charge the Ring of Suffering. In doing so, it also charges any other Recoil Rings in its inventory, even the ones listed. This gives him an almost infinite recoil loading loop that can help him in the mini-game.
He also uses slightly lower healing items so as not to increase the potential damage of his enemies. His favorite is fried onions, which can be made in combat caves. At cooking level 76, you will definitely fry them. For this you need to bring a knife and a pan.
It was work with passion and dedication as it was his dream conceived about 10 years ago. Each attempt at it took hours of testing and experimentation. He found out what worked and what didn’t, and competition from a friend helped him persevere. If you want to try it yourself, you’ve got all you need to know. What’s left is to practice the methods and strategies.
