Introduction

The Tier 90 weapons Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge, Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave & Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song are Best-in-Slot for most situations. But to obtain these items, you'll have to kill some of the strongest monsters in the game, and a lot of them too.


For the Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge, you'll need to kill (with Magic) Umbora (monster).svg Umbora for 100 Tidal Edge Fragment (item).svg Tidal Edge Fragments.

For the Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave, you'll need to kill (with Melee) Rokken (monster).svg Rokken for 100 Shockwave Fragment (item).svg Shockwave Fragments.

For the Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song, you'll need to kill (with Ranged) Ku-tul (monster).svg Ku-tul for 100 Ocean Song Fragment (item).svg Ocean Song Fragments.


Because you will end up killing on average 5000 of each, taking items with double droprate should be a priority if possible.


There are a couple of different orders in which these weapons are normally obtained.

Basically, a Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge is heavily suggested for Rokken (monster).svg Rokken.

The most standard orders are:

- Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge => Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave => Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song

- Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song => Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge => Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave


Below are some gear suggestions. Of course, depending on other factors (such as Prayer (skill).svg Prayer, Herblore (skill).svg Potions and Agility (skill).svg Agility buffs) your optimal gear can change.

This whole guide assumes you either use Semi to pick up items, or are active enough to pick up all pieces.

A lot of people also combine the grinding of these weapons with the grind for master slayer gear unlocks. An added benefit is the increased damage given by the slayer cape on task.

Tidal Edge

To be able to idle Umbora (monster).svg Umbora with Magic (skill).svg Magic, you'll need 46 DR assuming you have 1000 HP.

Umbora (monster).svg Umbora can be killed either with Ancient Magicks or with Normal Magic if you have an Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song.

With Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song, use Fire Surge (reference), Water Surge (+2% kill time) or Water Blast (+9% kill time, strongly reduced rune cost).

With an Imbued Wand, use Gust (+40% kill time) or Incinerate (+45% kill time).

Use the appropriate Elemental Imbued Wand for Ancients, and the Ocean Song (item).svg Ocean Song for Normal magic. The Slayer Skillcape (item).svg Slayer Skillcape can be replaced with a Max Skillcape (item).svg Max Skillcape or Skull Cape (item).svg Skull Cape. The Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs (item).svg Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs can be replaced with a Warlock Amulet (item).svg Warlock Amulet. If you hit the DR goal, you can opt for a Elder Crown (item).svg Elder Crown, Slayer Wizard Hat (Master) (item).svg Slayer Wizard Hat (Master), Slayer Wizard Robes (Master) (item).svg Slayer Wizard Robes (Master)...

Shockwave

Whilst the other two weapons are pretty straight-forward in terms of gear, the Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave is not.

You need to use Melee for this grind, and as said before, it is highly suggested that you have a Tidal Edge (item).svg Tidal Edge before you start the Rokken (monster).svg Rokken hunt.

Standard method

This method will require the highest DR, as you need to be able to tank the special hit of Rokken (monster).svg Rokken. At 1000 hp, this will require 55 DR.

Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield Off-hand 8%
Chapeau Noir (item).svg Chapeau Noir Passive 0%
Total 50%

Besides this tank gear set-up, you will need extra DR. This can be achieved by using a Fire Cape (item).svg Fire Cape, Infernal Cape (item).svg Infernal Cape, DR potions/prayers... The use of DR potions should be avoided if possible, so that DL potions can be used.

Stun method

This method will use the stun feature of the Fighter Amulet (item).svg Fighter Amulet to negate the effect of the Rokken (monster).svg Rokken special attack, effectively reducing the Max Hit (and thus the DR requirement). At 1000 hp, this method requires 47 DR, but with extra gear requirements relating to Attack Speed (required < 2.24).

To obtain the missing 4 DR, Prayer (skill).svg Prayer and Agility (skill).svg Agility can be used. Another possibilities is to use 4 Terran gear pieces.

Ocean Song

To be able to idle Ku-tul (monster).svg Ku-tul with Ranged (skill).svg Ranged, you'll need 48 DR assuming you have 1000 HP.

Depending on your chosen route, you'll be killing Ku-tul (monster).svg Ku-tul with either a Shockwave (item).svg Shockwave, Ancient Crossbow (item).svg Ancient Crossbow/Slayer's Crossbow (item).svg Slayer's Crossbow or Stormsnap (item).svg Stormsnap. Use Jadestone Bolts (item).svg Jadestone Bolts, Emerald Bolts (item).svg Emerald Bolts or Ancient Arrows (item).svg Ancient Arrows respectively.

As you can't use a shield whilst using a Stormsnap (item).svg Stormsnap, the DR has to be compensated with Agility (skill).svg Agility buffs, DR potions or Prayer (skill).svg Prayer.

If you hit the DR goal, you can opt for a Elder Crown (item).svg Elder Crown, Slayer Cowl (Master) (item).svg Slayer Cowl (Master), Slayer Leather Body (Master) (item).svg Slayer Leather Body (Master)...
