RuneScape 3: How To Use Archeology Skills To Earn Massive Gold During Bonus XP Weekend?
Welcome to our in-depth guide to RuneScape 3. This guide is designed to help you understand the intricacies of Archeology skill, especially during the exciting Bonus XP Weekend.
Our focus is on maximizing your profits while providing an AFK-specific approach to enhancing your characters. With our wonderful experience with skills like Construction and Herblore, it’s time to dive into Archeology mechanics.
Archeology had a unique performance during Bonus XP Weekend. Archeology mechanics will change during Bonus XP event. Instead of receiving double experience points from Artefacts, players get Artefacts back at twice the normal speed.
This effectively doubles your XP gain, since most Archeology XP comes from Artefacts. However, this rapid acquisition of Artefacts means that materials are collected at a normal pace, resulting in material shortages.
This material shortage also brings us the opportunity to earn RS3 Gold. Players in need will turn to Grand Exchange to purchase materials to restore their Artefacts and continue to earn experience points. This surge in demand allows savvy players to sell their stored materials at high prices.
Advantages Of AFK
Archeology is one of the most AFK-friendly skills in RuneScape 3, allowing players to perform multiple tasks efficiently. Whether you’re studying, working from home, or enjoying other games, Archaeology fits seamlessly into your daily life. Our guide ensures you can get the most out of this skill, no matter your concentration level.
Before delving further into Archeology, consider selling all stored materials in Material Warehouse. Prices for some materials will peak during Bonus XP Weekend, which could translate into substantial profits.
Also, don’t forget to keep track of the materials you sell, as buying them back after Bonus XP Weekend could net you plenty of extra RS3 Gold profits.
Items & Strategies
To maximize AFK potential and effectiveness, certain items and strategies are crucial. Auto Screener is an invaluable tool that can simplify Archeology process.
Also, Grace of the Elves and Premier Artefact can significantly enhance your AFK capabilities, reduce porter charges and increase your profits.
Flexibility is key when choosing a dig site. While we’ve provided examples of profitable Zamorak excavation sites, choose one that matches your level of Archaeology. Thanks to Artefacts, all materials have varying levels of demand, ensuring there’s a market no matter where you mine.
At each excavation site, you will see a material storage container. Not only does this allow you to store materials without using up valuable bank space, but it also provides direct access to Artifacts as they occur. This improves the efficiency of Archeology.
Not only does Archeology provide us with a large amount of RS3 Gold every hour, but it also ensures steady progress.
Depending on where you choose to mine, the profit you can make per hour ranges from 2-3 million gold to a staggering 9-10 million gold.
But as you know, focusing our efforts on a few lucrative items often brings us the greatest returns. Some of the colorful dyes and specific materials like Hellfire Metal and Blood of Orcus always bring us high profits.
As you indulge in Archaeology’s AFK nature, keep in mind that material prices fluctuate based on demand. Staying informed and adjusting your sales strategy accordingly can maximize your profits.
With Archeology, you not only unlock skills that are highly suited to AFK but also provide you with a reliable way to accumulate enough funds. In any case, Archaeology is definitely one of the best money-making tools during Bonus XP Weekend, so hurry up and give it a try!
Old School RuneScape: How Does Magic Combat Work? - Basic Mechanics Guide
Welcome to another F2P OSRS guide. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the mechanics behind OSRS Magic Combat and how Magic works!
It is important to note that this guide is intended to establish a basic understanding of the mechanics, so I will use approximations and simplifications to make things easier to understand. Without further ado, let’s get started!
Magic Attack, Strength And Defense
First, we have a Magic Attack, which is Magic Accuracy. This affects how often you hit your target. This is a combination of your Magic level and any Magic equipment bonuses provided by your armor, weapons, or other items.
Magic Strength or rather Magic Damage. This isn’t actually very useful early on, as very few items actually increase Magic Strength. Ancient Sceptre, Black Mask and Slayer Masks are some of the more easily obtained items that provide a percentage-based bonus to spell damage. But these items belong to mid-range games and are beyond this guide.
Magic Damage is determined by the spell you use. For example, Wind Strike has base damage of 2 and Wind Blast has base damage of 13. These maximum hits have nothing to do with your Magic level, as it cast them from a spell book. Therefore, even at level 99, Magic Wind Strike still has base damage of 2.
Usually spells based on Spellbook have a fixed maximum hit, such as Trident of the Seas. They use your Magic level as the basis for damage output. But again, these are mid-range gaming level items, a bit out of scope.
For now, just know that the spells you choose to cast usually set your Max Hits, so we can look up the handy OSRS Wiki table to find our Magic Max Hits.
Finally, we have Magic Defense. Unlike Melee and Ranged, which are entirely dependent on your defense level and equipment bonus. Magic Defense is a combination of your actual Magic level (70%), base Defense level (30%), and any equipment bonuses.
As you can see, it’s similar to the defense calculation we used before. We should note here that for monsters, this is not their base Defense level, but their Magic level and Magic Defense bonus.
Magic Equipment is very similar to Melee and Ranged equipment. Rewards are provided by Armor, Weapons, Necklaces and other equipment items. However, there are two key differences.
First, like Ranged, spells usually require ammunition in rune form. For example, a Wind Strike requires Mind Rune and a Wind Rune. These need to be farmed from drops, Runecrafted, or purchased from Magic Store and GE.
Next, you can only auto-cast magic by equipping a staff or similar item. These staffs often also provide other magic bonuses, such as an unlimited supply of certain runes. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you get a set of staff before training magic. Because auto-cast magic is necessary, and it also saves OSRS Gold and inventory slots.
Magic Attack, Styles, Speed & Range
Base level magic attacks award XP based on spells cast, with additional magic HP and XP added based on any damage dealt.
Unlike Melee and Ranged attacks, which require a weapon, Spellbook manual clicking can cast Magic and has no attack style. You can access Magic Attack option by equipping a Magic staff weapon.
Once equipped, you can choose which spells you want to auto-cast. But this doesn’t provide any additional benefits other than allowing you to auto-attack or auto-retaliate using spells from your equipped Spellbook. Therefore, as with manual spellcasting, XP is awarded based on base spell XP, plus additional magic HP and XP based on any damage dealt.
The last option for equipping staff is Defensive Casting. This is the same as the previous auto-cast option. In addition to damage, it divided XP into Magic, HP, and Defense. There is no invisible bonus to magic casting unless using a Powered staff.
Powered staff allow players to throw in Accurate or Long-range styles. Accurate provides invisibility +3 magic level, while Long-range provides +1 magic and +3 defense level and is also invisible. In addition, Long-range can also increase the magic attack range by +2.
All magic attacks have a cast speed of 5 ticks. There are some exceptions, including Powered staff with a cast speed of 4 ticks. It also fixed the range of magic attacks at 10 ticks, which obviously applies mainly to combat spells.
Some Powered staffs have lower range, you can also enhance it with Long-range, the maximum range is 10. If the weapon or attack already has a range of 10, Long-range provides no additional range bonus.
As with these guides, high DPS is the end goal, as this gives us the most XP/hour.
Unlike Melee and Ranged, spells tend to have a fixed speed and maximum hit, so DPS is more dependent on spell and enemy selection.
As Magic level increases and higher damaging spells are unlocked, figuring out the exact DPS is a little troublesome. The equation here will show you how to do this. There’s another handy OSRS Wiki table that will give you the maximum DPS for each spell.
Unfortunately, my XP trick works with Melee and Ranged, so we can’t use it in this case. So if you want actual DPS you can either take the best-case scenario and assume the maximum number of hits in the table, or you have to calculate it the old-fashioned way.
At the end of this guide, I hope this OSRS Magic combat mechanics guide has been useful. Hopefully, it helps shed some light on what’s going on behind the scenes and how to maximize your character’s performance.
RuneScape 3: How To Achieve High Profits Through AFK Training? - Comprehensive Crafting Guide
If you’re an avid RuneScape 3 fan looking to make the most of your crafting skills. Then you might be looking for a profitable yet relaxing way to craft while offline to take advantage of the bonus XP from the last day of XP Week.
So, in this guide, we’re going to share some highly profitable crafting methods for AFK training in RuneScape 3.
We will first describe a wonderful craft method involving the making of Dragonstone Necklace. This method is very versatile and allows you to earn a decent amount of RS3 Gold by crafting these valuable Necklaces with Dragonstone and Gold Bar.
Also, you can choose to create Combat Bracelet, Ring of Wealth, and other Dragonstone jewelry to generate profits. However, Dragonstone Necklace is one of the most popular items.
Players of RuneScape 3 often choose Dragonstone Necklace. This is mainly because it meets market demand. It not only guarantees players’ profits but also circulates in the market. Especially for Porters, which is a must-have for many players, Dragonstone Necklace has become popular.
Players can also choose to sell these Necklaces directly at Grand Exchange or enchant them for extra profit. This method is a good option if you want to gain crafting experience while farming gold.
How To Use It?
There are many ways you can use Dragonstone Necklace. You can use it with Alchemy, use machines or sell them directly. The choice depends on the build in your account and your own preferences.
Notably, it can also profit from caching. Especially if you wait for the right moment, such as a bonus XP event, when the price will usually increase.
It is important to note that if you have not completed Family Crest mission, you cannot use Gold Bar storage feature in Furnace.
Still, you can craft Dragonstone Necklace efficiently if you place it near a bank, such as Prifddinas’ Workshop. After completing the mission, you can craft a total of 28 Necklaces in your inventory. This will bring you greater convenience.
Also, if you plan to enchant Dragonstone Necklace, you will also need to reach a certain level of magic. If you’re not there yet, consider using Extreme Magic Potions to increase your level temporarily. This will allow you to perform enchantment spells that you wouldn’t normally be able to perform.
Finally, make sure to use bonus XP tokens wisely. If you’re planning to get into Slayer soon, Slayer Masks are a priority, as they offer significant advantages. Using tokens to unlock Slayer Masks makes Slayer easier.
In addition to Dragonstone crafting, Lever crafting can also help you gain experience points quickly. But unlike gem crafting, which can usually be AFK, Lever crafting requires more effort and provides excellent experience points. Also, you’ll want to focus on Lever prices, as they tend to drop at the end of bonus XP events.
Royal Dragonhide Body
You may also consider crafting Royal Dragonhide Body for high crafting experience points and substantial profits. Since Royal Dragonhide Body has high alchemy value and they are in high demand, there is no risk of price falling.
Players should preset 18 threads and fill the remaining inventory with Royal Dragon Leather and Beast of Burden. It takes 36 seconds to make 18 Royal Dragonhide Bodies. You should be able to craft 1800 Royal Dragonhide Bodies per hour. But you don’t need all 1800 lines, as 1 line can be used to make multiple Royal Dragonhide Bodies.
The process involves combining it with Royal Dragon Leather, which nets you around 350k XP per hour.
As you complete your bonus XP and prepare for regular play, consider these crafting methods to get the most profit while training your RuneScape 3 skills.
These methods of making Dragonstone Necklace, Lever, and Royal Dragonhide Body are both suitable for AFK and profitable at the same time. Following this guide can help you strategically use bonus XP tokens and maximize your profits!
Old School RuneScape: Tips And Tricks You Need To Know About Forestry
The new version of Forestry comes with a series of exciting additions to Woodcutting, making it even more fun. The community gathers in designated worlds to complete Events, Pet Hunting, and XP collection. This is what I have honed into 99 Woodcutting on my maxing journey.
So here I want to share some Forestry tips. These tips have really enriched my experience and I hope it helps you too.
We’ll start with a very basic one. You probably already know this. In order to turn your Beaver Pet into a Fox or Pheasant, you must have rare items that drop from events.
In order to have a chance of dropping, you must have a Trap Disarmer and Padded Spoon equipped in your Forestry toolbox. Alternatively, you can spend OSRS Gold from Grand Exchange to purchase inventory or trade with Freaky Forester.
Tips & Tricks
Here are some of my tips to make the event easier and more efficient so you can gain more experience.
For example, when each event resets at the end, you can just pick a set of flowers so you still get the full experience drops for the entire event.
This also applies to Haircut Events. But it depends on how much you interact with it.
Therefore, I recommend you return to Woodcutting after completing Haircut Event and make sure to stock up on some items. For example, Padded Spoon, Bee on a stick and all the items that make the event happen. This will enhance your experience. They will pop up more depending on how many items you have in your inventory or Forestry toolbox.
For some of them, you do get more rewards just by having the item in your Forestry kit.
When Leprechaun comes out, you’ll pop up a Rainbow. When you stand under Rainbow for about 2 game ticks, it will give you enhanced experience points, regardless of how many experience points the wood you are cutting has dropped.
I recommend tagging all Rainbows as they appear. Because of their IDs, you must tag them individually. But once you have all Rainbows, they’re easier to catch, and you won’t miss out on the boosting experience.
During Poacher event, you will place traps on the ground, which last approximately 7 game cycles. I recommend you keep chopping wood until the last possible moment, and be sure to consider run times, so that you hit the trap at the best time. This way you get more experience points and don’t waste woodcutting experience points disarming traps.
The same applies to Ritual Circle. You’ll have approximately 27 game minutes to reach Ritual Circle, stand on it and receive 300 experience points at the end of the event.
You will need to get around 3000 full experience points. So when you're woodcutting, it’s definitely worth doing it efficiently. Please don’t just stand on the circle unless you just want to AFK.
During a Mulch event, be aware of other people calling the rotation. For example, if someone said RRG, they would say first is red, second is red, and third is green. If you’re the one calling the rotation, be a team player.
If you want to farm Fox Whistle, remember that it doesn’t matter how many traps you disarm, but how long you were there from the start of the campaign to the end.
Old School RuneScape: How To Earn Slayer Points Quickly?
Today I wanted to do a quick guide and Slayer Points boosting example to show you the quick and easy way I could get tons of Slayer Points instantly.
In this guide, I will only cover Regular Slayer, not Wildy Slayer, as I have no experience going to Krystilia yet. If you want to unlock any rewards or missions or if you are like me and always run out of points for skipping during PVM Bingo events. Then you must not miss these great ways to increase your Slayer Points quickly.
In fact, this method is very simple. If you want to increase your Slayer Points, you can go to Turael in Burthorpe. Or you can even go to Spria in Draynor Village and complete 9 Slayer tasks in a row for them. These missions require dealing with fast, low-level monsters, and you can usually complete them in a few minutes.
Note that you won’t get any rewards from these missions, but don’t worry about what happens next. Another important thing to note is that you may not necessarily need to perform the exact 9 tasks. But make sure to right-click on your Slayer Helmet or Enchanted Gem to inspect your missions and see which mission number you are performing.
The target for Slayer Points boosting will always be these low-level Slayer Masters while performing any mission except the 10th mission.
What Do We Need To Bring?
As for what to bring, that depends on you personally and on the assignment you're given. But I’ll check out things in my inventory that I like, so I’m ready for anything.
I have a full set of gear, from Runes to High Alchemy, Teleportation to Varrock Diary, Falador Diary, Lumby Chest, and my Ardougne Cloak and Desert Amulet, just in case.
I also need to spend OSRS Gold to get some extra Teleportation, Superantipoison, Light Sources, my Herb Sack, some food, or prayer pots. You can also choose to carry an Expeditious Bracelet to further speed up the mission. The bearer of Soul Bearer can pick up any Ensouled Heads, as well as Ash Sanctifier and Bonecrusher, to gain Slayer experience.
The 9 missions it gave me while making this guide were: Cows, Monkeys, Dwarves, Kalphite, Cave Slimes, Jackals, Sourhog, Scorpions, and finally Bears to give you an idea of the types of missions you may be assigned. On average, each monster only took me 3 minutes.
After completing the 9th mission, you will next need to go to any high-level Slayer Masters you have access to get the 10th mission. If you can, you need to seek out Konar quo Maten. Because she rewards the most Slayer Points for every 10 completed tasks outside of Wilderness.
She’ll even give you 10 extra points if you complete Elite Kourend & Kebos Diary. Once you complete this mission, you will receive additional Slayer Points. The amount will vary depending on which Slayer Masters you go to.
When I completed Diary and went to Konar quo Maten again, I gained 100 points for every 10 tasks completed through her. My Bloodveld mission only took me about 30 minutes, and combined with my first 9 missions, I earned 100 Slayer Points in about an hour!
This is how to earn Slayer Points quickly. It’s quick and easy. You’ll have all the rewards and unlocked block slots worth 9,580 Slayer Points before you know it.
That’s it for this guide. If you found this helpful and who your favorite Slayer Masters are, feel free to share. Good luck!
