If you play Oldschool Runescape, you've probably heard of the Seasonal Deadman Invitational Tournament. The top 2000 players from each season of Deadman Mode will be placed in a winner-takes-all fight to Dagannoth Mother , where the last man standing wins $10,000. Players have devised all sorts of methods and plans to win the tournament, but of course only at the end will we find out which methods are effective. Aside from the obviously advantageous ideas like being in a clan, I've come up with some strategies that I think will give you a fair chance at overcoming the odds and winning the whole thing.
If you're a solo player, it's safe to say that near the end of the tournament you'll run into some trouble with clans. How does one fight a clan? To put it shortly, you can't. However, you don't need to fight them to win. As the Deadman Tournament comes to a close, the entire map will be filled with a deadly gas which presumably constantly damages players like an incurable poison. Depending on how strong the gas is, you may not even need to attack other players to win. Just outfit yourself in full tank gear with a full inventory of brews, and try to avoid conflict as much as possible. You'll still get attacked, but your attackers will have a full inventory of equipment which will limit their ability to tank the gas for as long as you. This is all highly speculative, but it certainly gives you a better chance than deciding to fight an entire clan by yourself.
Another option is to turn your account into a blood barrage mage-tank. You'll want to get 92 magic and some Ahrim's robes, or at the very least mystic. You'll also want to train your defense as high as possible. The idea here is to last as long as possible by using blood barrage to heal yourself off of other players and monsters. As long as you don't get KOed, you should be able to last for a while. Blood barrage will also help you outlast the poison gas by healing off of miscellaneous monsters, if you're able to avoid other players.
Our last method for extreme Deadman Mode survival is to outfit yourself in full tank gear with brews, but also bring along some fishing supplies. What you'll be doing is, as your food begins to run out, fishing sharks and cooking them on the range in Catherby. Depending on how fast you're able to fish these, this could be a useful method for surviving prolonged damage; maybe even long enough to win the entire contest?
All these methods are speculative of course, and it's hard to predict who will end up winning the Seasonal Deadman Tournament. However, we know one thing for certain: if you go in without a gameplan, you'll bound to rs 07 gold. Those who think outside the box have the highest chance of success, especially in an unpredictable and novel event such as the Deadman Tournament. Best of luck to all of you!
