Hello and welcome to my F2P: Best in Slot guide!


Although the F2P section of the game is rather limited, there's still a decent amount of gear to be found in there. This guide is made to list the best items usable per combat class, per slot.

For each slot per combat class, including hybrid + all-type, I will list items that are well worth to wear. Note that this does not only imply the best item only, but also near best items that may be used as substitute, down to items with good stats and are easily obtainable. It will also include items offering a certain bonus the most. The best gear for F2P Ironman is also included.

This guide will be updated as content is released and indeed introduce new items worthy on the list.

V1.11: Updated up to content of 21 January 2019; Added rune throwing axes due damage correction.

If an item is exclusive to a monster drop it will be noted who drops it, otherwise it will be noted as a drop and you can use the wiki or something to find out who all drops it.

Armour types and damage explanation:


If you’re not familiar what exactly an armour type does, or how the dps is handled for weapons, it is briefly summarized in this section.

Armour comes in 4 different types:
Tank
: Provides the highest amount of armour. Also provides damage reduction in both PvM and PvP.

Power
: Provides less armour (-5 tiers compared to tank type armour), but provides a damage bonus. Also has no PvM damage reduction and only half PvP damage reduction compared to tank type armour.

Hybrid + all-type
: Provides even less armour (-15 tiers compared to tank type armour), but allows one to make use of different attack styles without suffering a penalty. Also provides no style weakness. Has no PvM damage reduction and only half PvP damage reduction compared to tank type armour.

PvP
: Optimal combination of tank type and power type. Provides the highest amount of armour, carrying a damage bonus and full damage reduction in PvP. Provides no damage reduction in PvM.

The damage a weapon deals is dependent on both its level and whether it is a main-hand or a 2H weapon.
2H weapons and dual wielding have 50% more dps than its main-hand counterpart at the same level.
Different weapons of the same level, such as the rune main-hand weapons, have an equal dps. Slower weapons have a higher damage output while faster weapons have a lower one, but the dps remains the same. This explains why a rune dagger has an equal dps compared to a rune battleaxe.
Abilities also deal equivalent damage based on the weapons dps. Again, abilities used with a rune dagger deal equivalent damage as using them with a rune battleaxe.
