Theatre of Blood Full Guide
This guide is subject to change because Theatre of Blood isn't done at the moment.
Multiple mechanics will be improved, adjusted or added. When it does, this guide will be updated as well.
Section 1) Gear and inventory.
There are no real hard requirements for TOB. I'd personally suggest to at least have Elite void for all three styles.
For all styles it is suggested to just bring the strongest ones you've got.
At least have the following: Melee --> Abyssal Whip. Ranged --> Rune crossbow, it is however suggested to have at least an Armadyl Crossbow. Magic --> Ancient staff. You only use magic on one boss so no hard requirements.
I however do suggest to at least have 94/95 magic. Fire surge is the best option since this has the highest DPS.
Section 2) Strategy.
Like I said before, Theatre of blood is pretty simple at the moment because it's incomplete.
I'm gonna give a good description on what to do on each boss and what to expect.
Something nice to know is that you will earn "Theatre of blood" points that will increase the % of getting a drop at the end.
But you can also spend these at the chests at the end of every boss fight, it is suggested to go in each fight with enough food because when you die you can't re-enter.
1. The Maiden of Sugadinti (Level-940)
Prayer: Protect from magic Style: Your strongest.
If you've ever raided on OSRS or another RSPS, forget that. On this boss you basically just AFK attack her with your best style while praying protect from magic.
There are spiders that spawn and heal her when they get close to The Maiden, but you ignore those.
It's not worth it to stop the spiders that heal her because they don't get freezed properly. Just keep attacking her and she'll die eventually. On average it takes 8 minutes in a group of 5.
2. Pestilent Bloat (Level-870)
Prayer: None Style: Your strongest
You walk circles around the middle pillar, making sure that the Pestilent Bloat doesn't see you.
It might happen that he does see you, but make sure to move back ASAP otherwise the boss will kill you.
When he is recharging, attack him. When you see him get up again, just walk back behind the pillar again.
Repeat till he is dead.
I've added a gif down here so you can catch an idea of how to stand and when you can attack.
3. Nylocas Vasilias (Level-800)
Prayer and style: Depends on her form.
When she is blue --> Protect from magic and use magic on her.
When she is green --> Protect from range and use range on her.
When she is white --> Protect from melee and use melee on her.
This boss is really simple. You just have to make sure to pray the correct prayer at each form and use the correct style.
If you use range on her melee form, she will heal the damage you deal on her. So avoid that.
4. Sotetseg (Level-995)
Prayer: Protect from magic from a distance
Protect from Melee when you stand close to Sotetseg. Style: Range/magic is the best style. I'll tell you why in just a second.
For this boss it is important to use range or magic (whichever is your strongest one), why?
When Sotetseg shoots the big red ball, it is required for the team to stand in a 3x3 area to spread it's damage.
It will deal 120(?) damage to a single player if he is spread out, making him get one-shotted and disabled from the fight.
Besides that, just keep an eye out for your health since Sotetseg attacks in both Magic and Range and you'll be fine.

5. Xarpus (Level-960)
Prayer: None Style: Magic (suggested: Fire surge)
In this fight it is important to have magic because in Xarpus his first stage you can only damage him by single-casting magic spells at him.
Make sure to block the green portal that shoots him the green orbs, these will heal him and make the boss fight in general a lot longer than it should be.
I will post a GIF below so you can get a quick taste of how this boss fight is intended to be.
6. Verzik Vitur (Level-1040, final boss)
Prayer: Protect from magic in the entire fight. Style: Suggested style is range. Will tell you in-depth why range is best.
In her first phase it is suggested to use range because this is more of a hit & run boss fight.
Verzik Vitur will shoot blue projectiles which you can dodge. It is suggest to shoot, run & repeat.
In her second phase the same style is continued, you use range and you hit and run.
She still shoots projectiles that you can dodge, but the color of these projectiles are now green.
In her last phase she stops shooting these dodge-able projectiles, so you can just stand in one spot and AFK attack her,
keep an eye out for your health.
When you've finished Verzik Vitur her last phase a room will appear under her throne.
Enter it and receive your loot.
