Quests that give Attack Xp & required for Zerkers
Spoiler

These are not skill guides, simply recommendations. There are probably better ways to train these skills. I have left out combat skills and skills with low requirements, such as fletching since these do not need much explanation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

vi. -Getting Started


Okay, so you’ve just arrived in Lumbridge after Tutorial Island, but now what?
You’re going to need some money, so I recommend you begin training a skill that can get you a little bit. Don’t fret, you don’t need too much money so this won’t take too long. Some good money makers are things like:
Thieving, either pick pocketing or stealing from stalls (Biohazard Quest)
Woodcutting, you might get a lucky birds nest seed, but if not the logs are still worth a pretty penny. (Monk's Friend Quest)
Mining, everyone needs some raw materials. (Doric's Quest)
Or Fishing, we gotta eat, don’t we? (Fishing Contest - requires 10 fishing ~ Sea Slug - requires 30 firemaking)
I recommend you avoid training skills starting at level 1 like the plague, this will speed up your training a lot, and overall, I find this is more enjoyable. So I have put links to good beginner quests, with very low requirements by each skill.

Moving On –
Now that we’ve got some cash we have a choice to make, we can either begin training our combat or continue skilling toward the requirements we’ll need, all the while doing quests along the way that’ll benefit us and knock off some of the required quests.

Combat –
So you chose to start training combat? Well hold on for a second, all that hard earned Gp wasn’t necessary for an iron scimmy. Let’s kick-start this a little with some quests.
I recommend you start off with Waterfall Quest, this will get you to level 30 attack & strength.
Ok, now that we’re done with Waterfall Quest we have some attack and strength levels, but still only 10 hitpoints. We should probably start off easy. I recommend either training up magic and safe spotting creatures or some easy melee.

Magic.
The Varrock Guards are an unsuspecting foe, you can easily safe spot them behind a fence or rock.
Posted Image

A great place to buy some runes is at the Void Knight Outpost.
Posted Image

And make sure to pick up a staff from Zaff!
Posted Image

Melee.
It’s your first time, so make sure to bring lots of food and bank your coins. We can either try the Chaos druids north of Ardy (req 46 thieving to get in), or in the Taverly dungeon. Alternatively, we could just kill some dark wizards in Draynor.

Posted Image

Once we’ve got some HP levels, we can move on to.. you guessed it, more questing! But this time we can look at quests where we might have to do a little combat to get our reward.
Posted Image

Now we should be getting pretty close to 40 attack, so we might need more money for a rune scim. That’s no problem because we’ll be making money while we train, at flesh crawlers. Just pick up the herb and essence drops, bank and repeat.
Once we can afford a rune scim, why not upgrade?
We can even try out harder training spots, like hobgoblins, and fire giants.

Alternatively, a lot of players choose to train with Slayer for some great Gp once they reach higher levels.

What you want to do is start at the end goal of what a berserker should have then double back from there. For example, you may only need 107 qp for Legends Quest, but 125 is needed for the gloves I think. Double back through all the prerequisite quests and take the highest stats. Like Fremmy Trials needs 25 fletching, etc. And ya, I realize it's a WIP. Just focus one one quest line at a time to make sure you've got everything.

There are so many variations on what you could do, so I'm just going to use this guide as what you need to do, as far as quests go (besides the ones I recommend for training).

Thanks, I plan on adding a training section once I actually train my own account (starting only now :-P).
If you've got any of those super secret great training locations I'd love to hear of them.

Great guide.

I think it would be useful to tell us which skills can be boosted, and from which level. As in, I believe you can boost to 70 cooking from only level 66? That would save a decent amount of training.

Good idea, I'll add that in for the final quests that require it because it would take too long to do it on a by-quest basis and you would have to continue training anyways for the next quest that requires it.

Thank you for this, I was waiting for a proper guide and for prices to fall before I started playing but now I will start playing!!!

What gear do you recommend wearing and what stats do you recommend maxing out?

Attack/Pray are basically personal preference, but other then that 45 defence, 99 everything else :-P.
For gear, I believe void is pretty good although it gives little defence. They have not activated barbarian assault as of yet, but when they do the fighter torso paired with some rune legs, barrows gloves and berserker helm tends to be the most common. In both those set-ups you can get climbing boots or rune boots, and a fire cape.

Well how do you feel about 60 attack, 99 str, and 52 prayer?

Sounds good, since nobody will be PK'ing (in the capacity they used to) for awhile I wouldn't make any solid statements until we see how that all unravels. The key point I'm waiting to see is how many people bring a +1 like whip that is actually worth smiting, as opposed to something like a fighter torso or fire cape, since from what I've read a lot of people are just going for 60 attack.

Ah thats smart. Yeah 60 attack definitely cuts down on the training a little bit. I just watched an 8 stealth 8 video and it inspired me to try the 60 attack route. I will most definitely have to try 31 prayer for a while if I don't see any whips .Thanks. You should make an achievement thread and show your rune pure progress if you have time..or add it as an aside to this guide =).

I'd like to, but my time is stretched pretty thin as is, even though I still post here regularily, I haven't gotten nearly as much accomplished as I'd like to.
I did however upload one progress video on my [removed] so far, I plan to make more 07 videos on it, I have a few hours tomorrow to record :-P.

great guide... here is the one i've been using if you need ideas for your own: http://forums.zybez....fect-rune-pure/
i suggest you add the combat skills to your quest and training methods section.. and making sure people know not to train defence besides quests (Attack is also handy for those who want 60 attack zerkers)

also adding green dragons to your money making methods

I'll be adding a few places to train combat, once I get info on them such as Xp/Hr.
I wouldn't add many money-making tips because that doesn't apply to being a zerker, anyone can go green dragons so it doesn't really fit in with a zerker guide - also it's pretty common knowledge.
