Mod edit: This thread has been split from the Elf City update thread to discuss the recent trend of incorporating PvM into the Comp Cape requirements, etc., notably including the Rush of Blood challenge.
PVM skills in RS are basically non existent.
I got a lot of crystal weapon seeds from pickpocketing.
Also, I really can't kill the 20 waves at Blood Rush, tried alot, but I still fail. 30 seconds per wave is way too few. I'm not that 1% with lvl 90 gear and a lot of PVM experience. I really don't understand why these reqs lately are added to the normal comp.
Rush of blood comes down to "can you time thresholds and sunshine and not fail to tds/glacors or mispull jadinkos/ganos"
As someone who struggles with bossing in Runescape, I'd say there are definitely PvM skills.
Perhaps not as much as other games, but honestly that's why I like Runescape; I only miss out on a small portion of the game's content by being bad at PvM instead of missing out on the majority of it.
I mean, RS PvM skills are like, can I eat enough or can I time a click away.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy RS PvM. But there is comparatively very little skill involved.
