OSRS has its own take on the hugely popular Battle Royale game genre. Accessible by Lisa somewhere west of the Clan Wars area, this is an island where you face 23 other players. Your prayer points will be severely depleted and you will have to loot other players if you want to survive. Participants will have to disburse a payment of 100,000 or 1,000,000 OSRS Gold join. It may be a steep price, but considering the rewards, it is well worth it!
Last man standing: the basics
There are three game modes to choose from: Casual, Competitive, and High Stakes.
The former is sort of a convenient mode as it doesn’t offer any points or rewards. It costs at least 100,000 gold to join competitive mode. Rewards like Gold and Runescape Points are available and there is a requirement of at least 150 combat levels.
The last mode, High Stakes, is available at the option of the developer.
You have to pay a million gold to join. However, you stand to earn 15 million gold if you come out on top. Of course, you could also win a free ticket to the next High-Stakes match (3rd to 5th place) or nothing at all (6th and under). It is up to you to weigh that risk.
Last Man Standing can only be played on certain worlds.
They are 317, 384, 425 and 492. The middle ones (384 and 425) are available for free-to-play members. There is no difference between free and members-only games. This is because the equipment you use in the mini-game is the same and cannot be taken out of the instance.
Rewards include unique armor, weapon, crafting item, research scroll, and halos. Halos, in particular, have the effect of “lining up” with a faction in the God Wars dungeon. Wearing one will make those of that faction non-hostile towards you.
Once on the island, all combat stats and agility are increased to 99 (except defense which is capped at 75) for the duration of the game. All available prayers can be used (except redemption and preservation). It also replaces your current spellbook with that of Ancient Magicks. It doesn’t matter whether you have completed the corresponding quest or not. Finally, players benefit from infinite racing energy.
There is a default preset for items received on arrival.
It includes a runic pouch with runes for Blood Blitz, Blood Barrage, Ice Blitz and Ice Barrage. Players must loot dead players or randomly appearing chests to get more powerful gear. Bloody and bloody keys are needed for the latter if anyone has arrived in the area first. A key appears in your inventory when you defeat another.
After one minute into the lap, there will be an announcement on the fog.
Staying in it will damage you and the effects will get stronger the longer you stay there. Along with the fog, the safe zone will also appear. The fog doesn’t really close for 5 minutes after you start the game, but you should get closer to the limit so you don’t have to rush into it.
Selling shrines are scattered around the island, and you can buy and sell loot with them. They provide consumables, materials and other miscellaneous items. If you aren’t having too much luck with the looting, sell what you don’t need and buy what you do to survive.
Potential gear includes various member-only gear such as Elder Maul, Rapier Ghrazi, as well as the Ahrim Top and Skirt. You’re going to need better gear if you’re going to survive!
There are two main ways to play Last Man Standing: offensive and defensive. The first requires you to be an active participant, looking for other players or places to loot. Still, that doesn’t mean you randomly attack everyone you see.
You must always choose your battles and observe your opponents. Sometimes you can speculate on how many areas they’ve looted. Towards the start, you can expect others to have fewer consumables but better weapons. The reverse can also be true, as they might have a lot of consumables but weak weapons. As the round progresses you will have a hard time not upgrading your gear.
In real combat, the best weapon you’ll be able to find is the Abyss Whip, followed by the Ice Barrage. Try to defeat as many as you can near the start of the turn, as this is when you are most vulnerable. You can even use the Smite prayer. Remember that all of your combat stats are increased to 99, so normal magic is useless.
For defensive strategy, this is where you avoid direct combat and rely on knowledge of crates or dogs. You will camp in a safe place on the outskirts of the safe zone. Buy some rope so you can use them to cross the river in a pinch. This last trick can be a bit ‘cheat’, but you can use ladders to dodge the attacks.
Buy consumables from vending machines, not armor, as you’ll be getting equipment from other players anyway. You can also sell your starting spear for a survival token. If you see others dropping their spears, you may be able to buy and sell them too! Towards the end of the Thu, you must deny other players essential loot. Examples of these include props you may or may not have, arrows, or runes. If your opponent has a bow or uses spells, all you need to do is deny them more ammo, increasing your chances of survival!
Finally, praying is a good skill to learn. As prayer points are scarce, it helps you save them and continue your prayers for longer. It activates prayers for half a tick, benefiting from the effects but not using a point. The process requires constant vigilance, so practice this skill.
Last Man Standing is a fun minigame as long as you don’t take the competition too seriously. You’re going to win and lose, and you could usually be in the middle somewhere. Much of what you can do to survive is based on luck, because what you can get is random.
Plus, you don’t have to use just one of the strategies to survive. You can change depending on your situation and what you have on hand. Anyway, I hope this will help you in your future Games. Happy hunting and survival!
