Introduction

Recently as a clan we voted to hold ToB as the "Boss of The Week". In the following days many people in chat commented: "How many of us even know how to ToB"? I also saw many of the existing "tobbers" looking for ToB partners, many times without much luck. In the weeks preceding this BoTW I noticed many players, myself included, asking to be taught how to ToB, and were usually met with silence. Among us there seems to a few issues around players finding ToB partners, and wannabe tobbers learning ToB, thus, I bring to you a thread dedicated to OSRS Advice ToB Mentorship.

TLDR: Tobbers want more ToB partners, wannabe tobbers wanna be those tobber's partners, lets fix both with one solution!


What problems does OSRS Advice ToB Mentorship solve?

1. Existing tobbers sometimes have a hard time finding reliable & trusted partners.
2. Wannabe tobbers always have a hard nearly impossible time finding a team to teach them ToB, exacerbating problem 1.
3. It's often hard for existing tobbers to know which wannabe tobbers are serious, committed, capable, and prepared and worthy of their time spent mentoring.


How does this thread solve these issues?


  1. Experienced tobbers apply to be mentors.
  2. Wannabe tobbers apply to learn from mentors.
  3. When a ToB mentor is available, they can announce in cc they are taking qualified wannabe tobbers on a learner raid.
  4. The ToB mentor can then vet qualified wannabe tobbers from the "List 'O Wannabe Tobbers".

What is the Theatre of Blood (ToB)?

It is OSRS's 2nd and most recent raid. It is the 2nd most challenging PVM content in the game behind the Inferno. Skilled tobbers make 9-11M/hr at the time of this thread being written. However, it takes less gear than CoX (raids 1), requires no skilling, is faster to run, and more profitable.

OSRS Advice ToB Mentorship

The idea here is for OSRS Advice tobbers who already know what they're doing to be incentivized to teach OSRS Advice wannabe tobbers how to tob through not only just endless gratitude, but also because then they will have more clannies to rely on in their future ToB conquests.

Who qualifies to be a ToB Mentor?

ToB Mentors are players with mastery over the ToB raid, with plenty of experience, who also possess the desire to help others achieve greatness. They must not only be able to reliably complete 0 death raids, but also keep an eye out for the wannabe tobbers, and give instructions while doing so. On top of this they must also have discord and a microphone.

Mentor Requirements:

  • 100+ ToB KC
  • Discord
  • A microphone

Who qualifies to be a wannabe tobber?

Wannabe tobbers are players who have achieved a solid understanding of OSRS's mechanics. They have vanquished many of Gielinor's foes and are thirsty for a bigger challenge. Not only are they thirsty, but they have taken the steps necessary for a mentor to take them under their wing and show them the ways. Not just anybody will qualify for ToB Mentorship, here is what it takes:

Wannabe tobber General Requirements:

  • Discord with working sound settings
  • Stable internet


PVM Achievement Requirements:


  • A Jad kill
  • 50+ Olm KC
  • 25+ Zulrah KC (Because Iron Kingo says it shows you hate yourself enough)


Stats Requirements:


  • 90+ attack, strength, defense, hp, and range
  • 94+ magic
  • 77+ prayer (Rigour and Augury unlocked)


Minimum gear Required:


  • Full elite void with all helms
  • Firecape
  • Ava's Assembler (Dragon slayer 2 required)
  • Imbued god cloak
  • Trident of the swamp
  • Blowpipe
  • Tentacle whip
  • Crystal halberd or Dragon claws
  • Rune crossbow or better
  • Ruby bolts (e)
  • Bandos Godsword or Dragon Warhammer
  • Dragon defender
  • Salve amulet (e) (NOT (ei), you will want a bunch of salve (e) and you will drop after bloat fight)
  • Amulet of torture
  • Amulet of anguish
  • Occult necklace

ToB Mentor Wisdom


Advice for wannabe tobbers:
TM 19: "Crystal Hally and Dragon Claws are used differently. If you have dragon claws, you should bring both and if you do not - as a learner you can decide if you'd like to bring a dds + chally or just chally although dds would be a slightly better option."
TM 19: "Cant stress enough - Please watch guides before jumping in to be mentored"
TM 19: "Be patient, you will die. Its part of learning"

Advice for mentors:
TM 19: "For maiden, should have one mentor freeze all south, one freeze all north, and one potshare/veng. The person being mentored should also be freezing, but for the sake of learning more so than actually freezing since they will have room to mess up without the team being punished as the crabs are already frozen by a mentor."
TM 19: "Only one mentor should instruct the rooms. This helped a lot in a tob boosting discord"

Conclusion

Thank you for taking the time to check out this thread.
Please feel free to leave any feedback. I am a wannabe tobber myself, eagerly looking to learn. I am sure there are ways I can improve this thread or even make it into a discord channel on our OSRS Advice discord, so if you see any ways this can be improved please let me know.

Awesome thread!! Thanks for putting this together.  I'll gladly help mentor.

I would highly suggest learners watch PurpleGod's ToB Walkthrough.  It's pretty in depth but worth watching.  Xzact's 1-minute guides are great refreshers before each room.

Great feedback. I made the change. Only 50+ COX KC and 1 Jad kill are new PVM requirements. Pray upgraded to 77 and rig/aug unlocked as you recommended. Thanks! Happy to have you as our first official mentor Docquan!
