OSRS Woodcutting Guide 1-99

OSRS Woodcutting Guide 1-99

Wood is an important of a resource in Gielinor as it is in the real world, so it’s important to learn how to gather it. Aside from that, it’s also a great way to earn gold. For all those reasons, here’s a guide on how to get to level 99 and earn real quick.

Lumberjacked Up

Before anything else, let’s first discuss the tools of the trade. Specifically the most important tool among them: axes. While you can cut down trees without one, it should go without saying that it’s better if you do.

Axes are made with different metals, and which ones you can equip depends on your Attack levels. This means it’s highly recommended that you level up in Attack first, but it’s also fine if you haven’t, although it’s better to do so. Here are the metals they’re made with and the Attack level required before you can cut that use them.

  • • Bronze (level 1)
  • • Steel (level 6)
  • • Mithril (level 21)
  • • Adamant (level 31)
  • • Rune (level 41)
  • • Dragon (level 61)

Among these axes, Dragon Axe gives you a +3 level boost in Woodcutting.

There’s also the Infernal Axe, which grants you EXP in Firemaking, but using this has a 1/3 chance of burning the logs as they’re being chopped. The Infernal Axe is created by using a smouldering stone on a dragon axe. It can burn 5000 logs before being depleted, which you can then restore by using a smouldering stone or dragon axe on it.

Another equipment you might want to have is the Lumberjack set. It’s more of a recommendation than a must, but every piece gives a small boost to EXP, so it’s better that you get it before starting on your woodcutter grind.

The Trees and Where to Find Them

Now that we’ve enumerated what items you should first have, it’s time to discuss how you’ll be leveling up to 99. In the beginning, you can choose between questing and cutting wood.

If you choose the former, completing the quests Monk's Friend, Enlightened Journey, Icthlarin's Little Helper, and the Skrach Uglogwee subquest of Recipe for Disaster will earn you up to 9000 EXP.

On the other hand, if you go with the latter, it’s best to know where the trees you’re looking can be found. For that, here’s a list of tree locations:

  • • Normal Tree – anywhere in Gielinor
  • • Oak Tree – Varrock/Fally
  • • Willow Tree – Draynor (F2P)/Catherby (member)
  • • Teak Tree (members only) – Ape Atoll, behind Varrock Castle, Fossil Island
  • • Redwood Tree – Woodcutting Guild
  • • Yew Tree – Varrock Castle/Falador
  • • Magic Tree (members only) – Woodcutting Guild, Sorcerer’s Tower, Mage Training Area, Lleyta, Seers’ Village
  • • Arctic Pine – Neitiznot
  • • Hollow tree – Haunted Woods
  • • Mahogany – Ape Atoll, Kharazi Jungle, and Mos Le’Harmless
  • • Achey – Feldip Hills and near Castle Wars

from levels 1-15. This should take you around 97 logs to do. You can then move to Oak Trees, which you can do until level 30. This will take around 293 logs.

After level 30, it’s all logging from there. For levels 30-35, it’s Willow Trees, which requires 134 logs. Once you reach level 35, your options open up.

Branching Level-Up Paths

If you’re F2P, you’ll be sticking to Willow trees until level 60, and then move on to Yew trees until you finally hit the cap.

As for members, they get to have more options, starting with teak trees. With it, you can grind from level 35 to 65, and even 99. This can take you up to 99 really fast if you use tick manipulation. To do this, you need to be on Ape Atoll and be attacked by birds. With Auto Retaliate, it’s possible to get a log every two ticks if you’re being attacked two ticks.

You can also do 1.5-ticking on Fossil Island. For this, you need to set up a 3-tick cycles and run 2 squares beside the hardwood patch corners. It should be obvious that it’s harder to pull off, and there’s also the fact that you’ll need stamina potions for this, but at the same it yields more EXP at a shorter time period.

Late-Game Logging

If you’re not using tick manipulation, you’re better off moving to sulliusceps once you hit level 65. This will take you around 98000 sulliceps to get to level 99. For this method, you need to have a minimum of 12HP, as you’ll be taking damage from monsters.

Also, while grinding, you have the chance to obtain a sulliuscep cap, numulite, and unidentified fossil. The first two can help you earn a lot while leveling up, and the unidentified fossil can be turned in at the Varrock Museum so that the fossil exhibit can be completed, which in turn will garner you EXP.

You can either stick with sulliusceps until 99, or move on to redwoods once you hit 90 and stay there until you reach the cap. It doesn’t have a lot of requirements and attention, and it gives good experience. In order to gain access to these trees, you need to have 75% Hosidius house favor, as they can only be found in the Woodcutting Guild.

Old School RuneScape - From Wood to Gold

Once you’re done grinding, it’s time to make money out of woodcutting. Thankfully, compared to other skills, profiting out of this one is much simpler – just sell the logs you’ve obtained and you’re good to go.

Here’s a short list of profitable logs:

  • • Arctic pine – 213,000 Gold
  • • Hollow bark – 207,000 Gold
  • • Teak – 193,000 Gold
  • • Achey – 162,000 Gold
  • • Mahogany – 139,000 Gold

So there you have it – our Woodcutting Guide. Hopefully with this, you were able to reach level 99 and make a fortune out of this simple yet rather useful skill.
