Hi all,

Recently I started getting into pvm and want to learn some bosses now. After learning Rax I started trying to kill Telos. I have killed him around 10 times now but have not reached high enrages yet. I have a few questions however;

-Regarding the loot mechanism, I noticed you receive loot from the ''golden droptable'' (or something like that?) when you kill Telos on 100% enrage or higher, does this mean I should not kill him 0-99% and start at 100%?

-Why do people not just kill Telos at a high enrage and take the loot after 1 kill? Does the chance on receiving a rare drop increase when you are on a killstreak?

-So currently I'm learning p1-p4, but in p4 I sometimes get a massive hit after the anima bomb, when Telos says ''so much power''. This does not always happen though, is there a way to avoid him using this mechanic?

-I am killing Telos with magic, is it in general recommended to use the maniacal or the supreme runic accuracy aura?

Thank you so much in advance! :D

Hey Synxya,

I will try my best to answer your questions, but please keep in mind I'm not the best PvM'er!

I think this depends on what you want, really. If you kill him at a higher enrage, then you will also have a higher chance to earn more valuable items. So if you are able to defeat him at the higher enrage, then you should definitely do that. It depends on how good you are at PvM

You answered your own question there. ;)

The formula (credit to the RuneScape Wiki) is as follows:

Quoted from the wiki: "Where e is the enrage of Telos, s is the number of total kills done in the streak (so Streak+1 if using the Streak value in the loot interface), and l is either 25 or 0, depending on whether the chest was looted with Luck of the Dwarves worn or not"

Killing Telos multiple times therefore gives you a higher chance of getting good/unique items.

The "So. Much. Power." attack only happens when the anima bar is full. You can stun him to delay this attack. You can protect yourself by using barricade. There are some guides on YouTube showing how to do this exactly, so I would advise you to check them out (Just search "So much power Telos" and you should find some) :)

The berserker auras (for example Maniacal) are mostly preferred, as Telos will be killed quicker with them due to the increased accuracy. They should not be used during high enrage kills though, as the increased damage taken can be fatal during these fights.

Supreme runic accuracy is best used when Maniacal is on cooldown. The reason that Maniacal is preferred above runic is that it provides extra bonuses to the damage output. Runic doesn't have these extra bonuses and therefore has a decreased accuracy and damage output.

I hope that I have managed to answer most of your questions, but perhaps you can also check with a PvM'ing FC to see what they think. You can find some FCs in the "Teamwork" section. I'm sure they are happy to answer your questions in-game if you ask them nicely. :)

Please be sure to ask these players in-game, however, as these threads are not there for discussions about the best strategies.
