While there are many ways to beat the Volcanic Cave, the simplest way to idle stuff is with a melee build.

Given a melee build, and assuming the player has Smithing (skill).svg Smithing level 99 already, a player could use something like the following depending on their HP.

Item Slot DR%
(G) Dragon Helmet (item).svg (G) Dragon Helmet Head 6%
(G) Dragon Platebody (item).svg (G) Dragon Platebody Body 6%
(G) Dragon Platelegs (item).svg (G) Dragon Platelegs Leggings 6%
(G) Dragon Boots (item).svg (G) Dragon Boots Boots 6%
(U) Black D-hide Vambraces (item).svg (U) Black D-hide Vambraces Hands 5%
Subtotal 29%
Elite Amulet of Defence (item).svg Elite Amulet of Defence Neck 2%
Aorpheat's Signet Ring (item).svg Aorpheat's Signet Ring Ring 0%
(G) Dragon Shield (item).svg (G) Dragon Shield Off-hand 6%
Total 37%

For your weapon, you'd want to use a Ancient Claw (item).svg Ancient Claw, but in the lack of something better you could reasonably use a Sunset Rapier (item).svg Sunset Rapier instead, since it takes a bit less time to get your hands on.

By using a Skull Cape (item).svg Skull Cape from the Slayer shop, and a Silver Diamond Ring (item).svg Silver Diamond Ring on top of this gear you can reduce the HP requirement even more.

Note that many of these items can be swapped out for better items, and there's some variance between what the player will have access to, and what levels they have.
