25 Jan 2020, 08:16
There is nothing more relaxing than getting home from school or work, making yourself a cup of tea or coffee, and logging in to your Old School RuneScape account.
But sometimes you might not know where to start the adventure of the day: maybe some PKing? Or PvMing? Nah, these are relatively intense. Let's go with OSRS woodcutting training instead.
Complete OSRS Woodcutting Training Guide
In order to relax properly and still progress through the game, you can opt to level a profession that can earn you some extra money. Woodcutting is a great choice because raw materials are always in demand and the skill itself is not that difficult to level up.
Fast Woodcutting Leveling
In this OSRS Woodcutting guide, we will cover both the fastest way to gain Woodcutting experience and also a way to level up Woodcutting and make OSRS gold at the same time.
We highly recommend that you always use the best axe as much as you can since it will help you to level up your Woodcutting skill quickly.
Level 1 – 15 Woodcutting
Starting at level 1 to 15 you have no other option but to swing your axe at SImple Trees. They are abundant in Gielinor and you can choose whatever spot you prefer, it really does not make much difference as you will get to level 15 Woodcutting fast. You can use the Iron axe, but it does not add much in value, so don’t go out of your way to get it if you already have a Bronze axe.
Level 15 – 30 Woodcutting
Just like the simple trees, Oak trees are also widely scattered throughout the world. The recommended location for cutting them is Draynor or Varrock, due to proximity to a bank. If you are short on gold, consider banking Oak logs because they can be sold for a decent amount of gold.
Level 30 – 35 Woodcutting
So, you have not yet been bored by all this axe swinging and decided that the lumberjack’s way of life suits you? Good. This Woodcutting level bracket is where we begin to see some differences in free-to-play and pay-to-play methods. RuneScape members will want to chop Willow trees until they reach level 35 Woodcutting.
Level 35 – 99 Woodcutting
F2P players will have to settle for Willow trees for the rest of the game until they reach 99 Woodcutting. Willow Logs are near worthless and you should not bother banking them.
As for locations, F2P players should chop Willow trees at Draynor village and P2P at Catherby.
If you plan on buying a RuneScape membership soon, you can so with our help by heading to our RuneScape Membership for Sale page. Instead of paying the full amount at the RuneScape official website, you can become a member for a fraction of its original cost here at Probemas.
Level 35 – 99 Woodcutting (Fastest Way)
P2P players will want to level up 99 Woodcutting by chopping Teak trees. This is the fastest way to level up your Woodcutting if you’re using one of the tick manipulation methods.
3-tick, 2-tick and 1.5-tick methods are click-intensive, but perfect for leveling up Woodcutting. Your XP per hour will go through the roof!
You can check this YouTube guide on how these methods are executed. Teak trees can be found south-west of Castle Wars, in Ape Atoll, Khazari Jungle, and Hardwood Grove.
Level 90 – 99 Woodcutting (Easiest Way)
From level 90 Woodcutting you can start chopping Redwood trees. This method is not the most efficient one, however, it is very AFKable and is perfect for people running OSRS in the background while doing something else. Redwood trees can be found in the Woodcutting guild and you will also need to have 75%, Hosidius Favour.
Money Making With Woodcutting
Woodcutting in OSRS can be profitable once you reach the higher levels. Improving your RuneScape woodcutting skills over time can get you a good payday, but don't expect that much compared to other high-paying RS skills.
Level 60+ Woodcutting
Achieving level 60 Woodcutting allows us to chop down Yew trees. Good spots for F2P players are Varrock Castle and the woods south of Falador.
P2P players, as usual, have more options and can go to Catherby or Tree Gnome Village. Both locations are close to a bank.
Yew logs are not really that expensive, thus if you’re not in desperate need to make gold, we suggest you stick only to leveling Woodcutting for a while. And if you really want to get your hands on billions of gold fast, you can simply buy OSRS gold from us.
Level 75+ Woodcutting
Now once you reach level 75 Woodcutting you can start making some serious cash. P2P players unlock the ability to chop down Magic trees. This money-making method is also convenient due to it basically being AFK.
Unfortunately, for F2P players chopping Yew logs is as good as it gets. No need to fret, you can become a RuneScape member at the most affordable price by acquiring our RuneScape membership keys.
When leveling Woodcutting, make sure to acquire a Lumberjack outfit. The complete four-piece set gives a 2.5% increase in Woodcutting XP rates and is easy to obtain. You will only spend around an hour getting the whole set.
This, in turn, will save you tens of hours in the long run. Pieces of the outfit drop from Undead Lumberjacks’ in Temple Trekking minigame.
A notable OSRS item for any dedicated skiller is the Infernal axe which has a 1/3 chance to burn the chopped logs. It requires 61 Woodcutting and 85 Firemaking.
While it gives only half the experience for the logs it burns you would get using the conventional methods, it saves time by both clearing your inventory and giving you Firemaking XP at the same time.
