Old School RuneScape: What New Content And Change Will The Final Forestry Update Bring?

Today I will discuss the final planned Forestry update. If you haven’t updated in the past few months and know nothing about Forestry, you can’t miss this guide!

A few weeks ago, OSRS team posted a blog about wrapping up Forestry with some last changes and tweaks. But they will definitely clarify that this is not Forestry Part 3. These are just some of the quality of life changes.

Old School RuneScape: What New Content And Change Will The Final Forestry Update Bring?

Event Items

First, let’s get into event items. They mentioned that they have added new event items to the game to provide a new way to earn OSRS Gold through woodcutting.

But the ultimate feedback on these items is that they make a very simple skill unnecessarily complex, making players feel like they have to do a lot of preparation to effectively train the skill.

As a result, all Forestry event items will be removed from the game. This means you only need Forestry Kit and Axe to spawn any event items. This does not affect any actual forestry rewards, only event items, namely Clover Insignia, Powdered Pollen, Smoker Fuel, Trap Disarmer Blueprint, Crystal Charm, and Egg Cushion.

They note at the end of this section that when this update launches, any event items left in the game will be converted to OSRS Gold, equal to the average price of removed items moved to event generation.

Event Spawns

The blog points out how the current Forestry meta is about staying in a world and running around a taking part in events, even getting summoned in clan chat for the best XP and chances of getting unique items. The problem is that this leads to exactly the situation they wanted to avoid with Forestry: people gathering in small areas instead of being dispersed around Gielinor.

To address this issue, they will change the way the event operates. With this update, event spawn chances will be based on the last two trees you felled within three minutes. In particular, what you cut down isn’t necessarily what you get the logs from, so don’t worry if you’re at a lower level.

Each tree you cut down has a 20 tile radius within which events you can take part can occur.

If you’re within that range, you’ll get the standard full XP, Anima-infused Bark, and the unique roll chance you normally get from Forestry events.

However, if you’re outside of this given range, you can technically still take part in these events, but you won’t gain as much. You will only earn 10% XP and are not eligible for Anima-infused Bark or unique items.

Hopefully with this change, people will be more dispersed among the different trees to keep Forestry being a broad skill approach. There will also be longer downtime between Forestry events. But in exchange for the extra wait, you’ll be more likely to collect unique items.

OSRS Final Forestry Update: What's New and What's Changing?

Twitcher’s Gloves

Next they discussed Twitcher’s Gloves. Twitcher’s Gloves are single-use items purchased from Forestry Store. Whenever they get a nest from Woodcutting, your chance of getting a specific Bird Nest increases by 10%. These gloves have 250 charges, and each log you receive consumes one charge.

Overall, the feedback for Twitcher’s Gloves hasn’t been the most positive. In particular, players don’t like that you need to constantly recharge the gloves to benefit from them.

Starting with the next update, Twitcher’s Gloves will be completely redesigned as a single item with no cost, and it will increase their Bird Nest buff to 20%.

Since this is a large buff, the price of Twitcher’s Gloves will increase to 5,000 Anima-infused Bark as well as 500 Willow logs.

It will remove all old gloves from the game, and you will receive a refund for any gloves you may have in your bank at the time of removal.

Arctic Pine Trees

The last change the team hopes to make is Arctic Pine Trees. Players need logs from these trees to receive some rewards, but they spawn in few locations and some restricted accounts don’t have access to them.

Since it’s really just a tree, the team felt the trees shouldn’t be locked behind the mission. So the developers will add a new grove of Arctic Pine Trees around Rellekka.

That sums up Forestry! What changes are you most excited to see from the upcoming Forestry update?
