Short Nightmare Zone Guide

Recommended Posts

It was via an afk melee account with no demon, 25k rounds.  Also, I edited in black knight titan info into the previous posts.

 

 

I have tried selling the 1x1 mage account, but few people have the quest reqs, and not a lot are interested in it.  I advertise it sometimes on my other acc, and on forums, and sometimes I'll get pms where I can sell rounds for 50k.  If I made a titan account, I could probably bump that to 75k with no loss in profitability.

Nice guide.

 

From what level in att/str would this become a viable method for training?

I'd say it's viable at pretty much any level, however you'd want to stick with normals instead of hard modes until probably around 60-70 att/str.

 

 

 

I did some tests on using absorption potions instead of prayer potions, and at 76/77 all melees, I found that 3 four dose overloads, 1 gmaul, and the rest (96 doses I think) absorption pots works out best.  It should cost somewhere around 112k NMZ points for that, and I was getting an average of around 175k points in return, which took about an hour to utilize.  I wouldn't suggest doing absorptions until at least 70 defence though.

 

XP/hr of absorptions appears to be about the same, around 75k melee xp/hr and 25k hp xp/hr at 77 att/str.

 

 

This should make you profit assuming you buy herb boxes, since you should be able to buy ~6 herb boxes which'll average to at least 10k ea, which should cover barrows repairs, the 25k for the boost, and the 6k for getting in.

Yeah, black knight titan is the best 5th monster - there are a few accounts with it on it, though they're rare.  I haven't played much lately since I kinda got annoyed at RS after dumb deaths.  Eventually I'll come back and overhaul this.

If you don't know yet, world 369 is the world for maging at nmz with 1x1 monster hosts. I don't know if you remember me, but last time I saw you at nmz, you were the only host with all 1x1 monsters (even though you had treus dayth instead of bkt). I just think it's funny that one day we were searching for 1x1 hosts and then, out of nowhere people made them.

 

The exp per hour using a not so hard to master 'lure method' where in a group of 3, 2 people dd while another person runs east to west 2 spaces at a time is higher than alching by far. From a bad to good team, you can come out with anywhere between 160-180k mage exp, as well as 120k hp exp per hour. I like to train my defence with this method so I come out with usually 80k defence and 120k hp & mage exp per hour.

 

Also, looking back at your monk vs. ahrims test, I find this interesting because when maging in a group with 2 other people using the 'lure method', the amount of points you attain using ahrims compared with using monks is a lot higher. So I think you would get more exp/hour with ahrims. I easily come out a game with max points before everyone else.

 

It's funny because all this time I was scared for a nerf before 94 mage, and here I am with 97 mage and 97 defence and an untrim hp cape. I have earned and spent well over 50 million points from this game, allowing me to have 99 range banked. I hope to get 99 mage very soon and probably will earn it before mod mat k looks at the exp rates from nmz a little more carefully. Expect a nerf soon since people are complaining on the forums quite a bit.

Yeah, mystic or infinity robes with farseer helm, inf boots, fury or glory, god cape

Just thought about this but I guess you could also use void, but I think void is only good when you have a good mage level

Yeah I went ahead and used mystic and it worked fine. Used mitre instead of my farseer though just because the massive prayer boost justifies the small loss in mage attack IMO.

Yeah, I apologize for kinda abandoning this thread, I kinda got busy with school and real life stuff.  I might have to go back into maging NMZ, I do want 94 pre-nerf.  No promises this time though about updating the guide quite yet - though eventually I will, since this was one of the more popular NMZ guides a few months back according to google.

Question, how do you ensure that runes spawn for maging? Is it only with certain bosses unlocked?

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Make sure that you're the one hosting the NMZ, and that you've done a quest that requires the use of magic - like family crest or the lighthouse quest.

 

 

Also, holy crap NMZ maging in it's current iteration is so stupidly OP it's crazy.  AFK 150k magic xp/hr for free.  Crazzzyyy good.  If I ever get free time where I'm not doing homework, I'll add a short section on it, though in the meantime, just youtube "nightmare zone maging" and look for a result within the past month for how it's currently being done.

Its worth noting that at 70-70-70 whip is still better xp than dhing by 7k xp/h

Good to know - I'm guessing Dh starts being better xp when you're around 75-80 att/str, or if you have abnormally high hp (ie you already did 99 mage/range so you're 70-70 with like 95 HP).   I'm going to wait until this poll finishes up and see what Jagex does with NMZ, then I'll go ahead and edit the guide I think, since I'm finally getting some more free time that isn't taken up by work or school.

To whom it may concern...

 

At 74-76 magic, a 1 hour (3 ovl trip) with someone else luring:

+663,191 NMZ points

+161,586 Magic XP

+107,836 HP XP

-162k GP for luring/boosting

-10.5 prayer potions (4)

 

Smoke barrage, protect from melee only, +101 magic attack, +14 prayer

 

 

At 61-66 range, a 1 hour (3 ovl trip) with someone else luring.*

+233,987 NMZ points

+203,381 Ranged XP

+67,636 HP XP

-162k GP for luring/boosting

-22.75 prayer potions (4)

-1,292 red chinchompas

 

157.42xp/chin

 

Short fuse, protect from melee and eagle eye, +103 range attack (void), +10 prayer

 

*The lurer was really bad at luring. AFK'd very often and didn't know how to lure properly, so these figures could be much higher.

Probably would want higher ranged before starting since your partner mustve been outhitting you each time for the final hits, giving you less pts. Also Id like to note that blood bursting is a viable method should anyone want to google it or add me.

No way, Jose. It would've taken 20 hours to go from 61-70 range with knives. With chins, it only took 2 hours.

 

Not sure what ranged lvl is needed to out-DPS smoke barrage. With medium fuse it shouldn't be very high. I didn't realize medium is better than short when I did that trip.

NMZ mage just got updated-- it no longer provides free runes.

 

Guess I'll just slip back into retirement now since I have neither the time nor the patience to train magic traditionally :P

I think if boosters got chronozon then it would still be possible

Chronozon is not a 1x1 sized monster and blood runes don't spawn with him. Chinning still works in NMZ though.

Some people have been saying demon is better xp than mtd at higher atk (90 ish) and it gives around 30% more pts

Demon is definitely better if you're Dharoking and/or have high attack since it has higher defense, but more HP and more points. I'm only 60 attack though so MTD is much better for me.

 

BTW I get about 5% more xp/hr with DDS instead of Gmaul for power surge.

 

 

For those of you using Dharoks, you might find this Reddit thread helpful. The only concern I see with using absorb pots instead of prayer pots is that you can't use strength prayers if you don't bring prayer potions. Unless the ancient mace + power surge is consistent enough to maintain the boosts.

Lol mat k read that thread and replyd, so he is 100% aware that 1. rapid renewal can stun hp gain and 2. at 1 hp your absorptions only take 1 dmg/hit. However dont expect a nerf until next year

I'm still waiting for them to consider boosting a bug and make it so once the booster leaves, the monsters are updated accordingly
