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.
