In Old School RuneScape, you may have come across the term Void, which represents an armour set within the game. Void gear can be upgraded up to Elite Void in OSRS, which this guide aims to help you obtain. We’ll also be outlining the main differences between Void gear as it gets upgraded.
This guide will be looking into the following:
- What is Void?
- How do you get Void in OSRS?
- Difference Between Regular and Elite Void
- How to Upgrade to Elite Void
So let’s begin with discussing what Void actually is, and what it is best used for.
What is Void Gear in OSRS?
Void is an armour set that is very often used for player killing, bosses, and even as a welfare ranged setup. Many players opt to use it for raids, since it has the option for you to simply switch your helmet to completely alter your combat style.
Speaking of combat style, in order for you to use Void, you will need to be at level 42 in all combat skills, which includes Attack, Defence, Strength, Range, Hitpoints, and Mage. The exception is Prayer, which only requires you to be at level 22. The Void Knight armour offers defence bonuses to all of your stats at an equal measure, without worrying about sacrificing attack bonuses.
How do You Get Void Gear?
If you would like to get your hands on the Void Knight equipment, then you can do so by purchasing it from the Void Knights. To be able to do this, you will need to rack up Void Knight commendation points. This can be done by playing through the Pest Control minigame, with a full set of the armour costing you 850 points, not including the mace. To break it down, the full set includes the Helmet, Top, Robe, and Gloves, with the mace costing an additional 250.
There are a number of uses as previously mentioned for the set. It can also be used in order to make Slayer tasks go by faster, as long as the Slayer helm isn’t a priority. It is a very popular choice when out in the Wilderness, where PvP situations take place. Since you don’t have to switch helms with this set to alter your combat style, it can be of great use here.
Differences Between Regular and Elite Void
There are similarities of sorts between regular and Elite void. For example, you will need to have the same combat skill levels to progress. Elite void also has the same defence bonuses compared to regular Void Knight equipment, however, it does differ in some ways also. For example, you can expect it to have a different appearance to the regular Void outfit. It also offers a +3 Prayer bonus, and gives extra damage boosts to mage and range sets if that’s something that would interest you.
However, now that we have an idea as to how to unlock the Void gear, and what the differences are between regular and Elite, we still need to know how we can get our hands on the Elite gear itself.
How to Upgrade to Elite Void OSRS
As expected, the Elite Void Knight equipment is an upgrade of the typical void set. You can get the Elite Void Top and Elite Void Robe once you have completed the Hard Western Province Diary. It will cost you 200 Void Knight commendation points for every piece of the Void set that you wish to upgrade. Given the advantages that we have previously discussed, it definitely worth considering upgrading to.
It is going to cost you a grand total of 400 points to upgrade your Void Knight equipment to Elite. If you want to upgrade your Void pieces, then you need to head over to the Void Knights’ Outpost. Then, you will need to talk to the Elite Void Knight. You can find this character near the bank, often found pottering around the entrance of the Void Knights’ Outpost. If you have finished the Hard Western Provinces Diary, then you will have the ability to speak to her. So once you have done so, make sure you have the commendation points your require handy.
If you need to find the Void Knights’ Outpost, then it is located to the south of the map. Where you find Ape Atoll, search to the south-west, and you should find a small island. There are a few ways to reach this location, first of which is via Port Sarim, where you can speak to the Squire. Alternatively, you can get yourself a charged Amulet of glory, and then teleport to Karamja. Then, pay the 30gp to the customs officer, unless you have finished the first part of the Garden of Tranquillity quest, in which you should have the Ring of Charos to get you there for free. There is a third route too, in which you can reach the outpost by using the Minigame teleport system, then choosing Pest Control, and then using Teleport.
Overall, you will find a lot of uses for the Void armour setup in general. It is effective in a number of different situations that you will find yourself in during your time in Old School Runescape, regardless of how you approach the game. If you are more of a PvE sort of player, then you will find the set beneficial when going up against low defence level monsters, and is often favoured over high-level armours by many players. Meanwhile, its adaptability by being able to switch between combat styles makes for great use in PvP battles too.
So once you have the Elite Void OSRS setup, you will be more than ready to take on anything that stands in your way. So whether you are planning to slay monsters, take on raids, or fight your fellow players, make sure you rack up some commendation coins and head out to Void Knights’ Outpost to grab your coveted Elite Void gear.
