Hello! I am here to help those wishing to start as Ironman learn how to get started as a iron, without further to do here we go!
-you can choose to either do the tutorial or not up to you.-
The main focus you are gonna want to do is Baron or King as they provide the best benefits since we are to be self efficient cant use most shops and cant loot other player loot, use auction house or pvp kill for gear.
SIR 250X Combat xp 150x Skilling xp
LORD 125x Combat xp and 75x Skilling xp with a 1% drop rate bonus
BARON 50x combat xp 25x Skilling xp with a 2.5% drop rate bonus, a 5% hit rate increase and a extra 250 prayer points
KING 10X combat exp 5x skilling xp a 5% drop rate increase, a 10% hitrate increase a extra 500 prayer points and the beginner set lasts longer
once you have decided on what game mode you would like it will ask you if u want to be a Iron or even a HARCORE IRON Hell yeah we do
So we have are starting gear and now is where you decide whether you want to do skills or combat first, first lets know what there is that can help us in IRONMAN.
As a Ironman there are a few Shops that we are ALLOWED to use in the skilling and home areas
The major one being the ironman shop which is found by teleporting to the skilling zone and running north
This npc sells are basic tools for starting skills
and also the cullimancer's gloves (barrow gloves)
Another store we are allowed to use in the Skilling zone is the herblore shop which is found south of the skillzone bank and it sells the secondary ingrediants and vials of water
Now for the Misc. shop which is found at home!
this stores sell us a few odds in ends like rune arrows which are great with a Featherfall Bow! and the unidentified glove, necklace, and ring for the best in slots.
now the next shop you can use as a iron is the magic shop at home for runes!
Personally I would start with skills that are required for the easy-medium achievements, these reward with CASH, EXO points and ACHIEVEMENTS POINTS and LAMPS! depending on their difficulty as we can get the EXO sword from the EXO store which is 25k EXO points and will be our best in slot melee for a while.
EXO POINT STORE
And the ACHIEVEMENT STORE
Now if you want to Choose combat first I recommend immediately Grabbing a slayer task as we can get started on leveling up our combat stats for better tasks and also getting some cash built up and also getting our prayer to 43 is VERY IMPORTANT as then we can use the PROTECT FROM MAGIC AND MELEE which is useful for farming
DARK CELESTIALS(Pray magic)
CELESTIAL FOXES(pray melee)
for the Featherfall bow which will be our main range for awhile and also the celestial staff and scimitar (if u don't buy the exo sword) @ the celestial cave teleport.
NOW IMPORTANT TIPS I CAME ACROSS WITH MY KNOWLEDGE AND THE HELP OF OTHERS
PRAYER- DO NOT BURY THEM USE THEM ON THE ALTAR AT HOME NORTH RIGHT OUTSIDE THE BANK!
HERBLORE -PRAYER POTS ARE OUR LIFE! requires 38 herblore and a ranarr weed and snape grass!
the best quantity for herbs I have found is killing the bronze and steel scorpions for all herbs 1-20 NOTED!
Fishing and Cooking- self explanatory fish the best fish and cook that fish to help not dwindle down your prayer pots!
And as you have been Killing monsters around Exora you will notice you have come across parts that look like these these parts are used at
these Parts are used at the monster table found northeast of the home bank between the slayer camp and the dicezone
these boxes give various items some lack luster then others but also contains some major upgrades for us iron the main ones being the
Monster hunter shield (can be upgraded to Titanite Shield)
Monster Handaxes (little bit weaker then the Dark Matter Sword)
Ancient amulet (same stats as a fury)
ShadowStone ring (same stats as berserker I)
the amulet and the ring also give a better chance for The monster parts
as for Armour progression i'm not very experienced as I skipped a lot with grinding out the biggest baddies I could do in low tier gear, but here is how I progressed so far in my time playing as a iron
starter gear<Rune Armour<Bandos<barrows<Dravonic<????
Now what drops this gear?
Rune armour almost any monster drops rune armour
Bandos is Dropped by general Graador
Barrows/Guthans/Dharoks, is dropped by the boss sunfreet
Dravonic Demons 85 slayer required drop the dravonic @ Dravonic lair
Green dragonhide<Black Dragonhide<Armadyl<ShadowScale<???
Green dragonhide is dropped by the celestials
Black dragonhide is dropped commonly by hellhounds and skeletal wyverns
Mystic is droped by various slayer monsters
Ahrims I got randomly from a event that is no longer here ( 😞 )
Now for tips on how to train certain skills that you may be struggling with this is what I did if u find a easier method More Power to you 😄
Fishing and cooking
Monkfish require 62 fishing and 62 cooking they burn a lot but once u hit the 92-94 you hardly-never burn a inv
what I did was Bowstrings until I was able to cut sapphires and carried a chisel with me everywhere and picked up the higher lvl uncuts as well to stock pile them for when I could craft them. Also
Thieving This skill benefits your crafting to a multitude of xp if you didn't happen to get a gemstone hatchet to chop gemstone trees at lvl 75 you can steal from the gem stall in the thieving area of the skillzone
Recently they added a new Feature THE TITAN FORGE!
here you can make Upgrades to Certain weapons at a cost and fee
as you can see this one requires a feather fall bow+10m+10 elemental dust and has a 15% to forge
YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR ITEMS BACK IF YOU FAIL TO FORGE IT IS BEST TO HAVE EXTRAS BEFORE DOING THIS!!!!!
Easiest bosses/npc i have found to kill for titanite shards
GEMSTONE HATCHET TREES
OPAL HOME EAST OF SHOPS
SAPPHIRE BLURITE MINES
EMERALD CELSTIAL CAVE WEST OF ENTRANCE
RUBY SUNFREETS LAIR NEAR WHERE U SPAWN
