Early training: Quests[edit | edit source]
Early levels can be skipped by completing Monk's Friend, which has no requirements, is extremely short, and rewards 2,000xp, enough to go from level 1 to 13. There are a few other notable quests that grant experience, but not available early enough to be necessary before Wintertodt.
- Monk's Friend rewards 2,000xp
- Icthlarin's Little Helper requires Gertrude's Cat, rewards 4,000xp
- Enlightened Journey requires 20 , 20 , 30 , 36 , rewards 1,500xp
- The Eyes of Glouphrie requires The Grand Tree, 5 , 46 , rewards 2,500xp
Equipment[edit | edit source]
Finding axe upgrades at each Woodcutting milestone is the largest challenge of training the skill. Players who have access to the fairy rings can use code bkq and safespot tree spirits for axe drops up to and including rune. Alternatively, players can use a steel axe until level 60 Woodcutting and then purchase a rune axe from the Woodcutting Guild, assuming they have at least 75% Hosidius favour. A dragon axe can only be obtained as a rare drop from one of the Dagannoth Kings, or as a very rare reward from a Wintertodt supply crate.
Recommended methods[edit | edit source]
Levels 1-45~: Training Firemaking[edit | edit source]
At level 15, players can chop and burn oak trees until level 35. Burning teak logs only requires 35 , but it's best to stick with oaks until chopping teaks becomes available.
At level 35, teak trees can be chopped and burned until players are eligible for Wintertodt at 50 Firemaking. An easy to find teak tree can be found south-west of Castle Wars, which is fast to get to with the minigame teleport.
Levels ~45-60: Wintertodt[edit | edit source]
Getting at least level 60 Woodcutting from Wintertodt is recommended, as players can simply buy a better axe from the Woodcutting Guild and do not have to spend time killing monsters.
Levels 35-99: Teak trees[edit | edit source]
With tick manipulation, chopping teak trees is the best Woodcutting experience in the game. Without manipulation, Sulliusceps becomes better experience at 65. Since large quantities of teak planks are useful for construction training, it's recommended to make the logs into planks immediately.
The most efficient route for this is to teleport to a player-owned house and use a servant to make the planks. After sending him off, a mounted digsite pendant can be used to quickly get back to the teak trees on Fossil Island.
Ape Atoll is another option for teak trees since it's a shorter run, however there may be competition for the trees. Monkey Madness II makes the monsters unaggressive there, otherwise a greegree is necessary. The Ape Atoll Teleport on the Arceuus spellbook can be used to get there quickly, or a house portal.
Levels 65-99: Sulliusceps[edit | edit source]
Sulliusceps on Fossil Island are a good source of non-tick manipulated experience, around 100-110k experience per hour. They're also a source of unidentified fossils, which are useful for the displays on the bottom floor of the Varrock Museum.
Being in the Tar Swamp, players training here will have to contend with Tar Monsters. Equipment with ranged defence is recommended, since prayers will be ineffective against these monsters. The route is fixed and different for each person, there is no competition for resources. It's recommended to bring 10 mushrooms to fill the mud pit at the start, which allows safe passage to the beginning of the swamp. Without, the mud pit can deal upwards of 50 damage.
Levels 90-99: Redwood trees[edit | edit source]
Chopping redwood trees is the best passive method of training. Players can expect 60k+ experience per hour. Natural spawns can be found in the Woodcutting Guild, and redwood saplings can be grown in the Farming Guild, though it's slightly less efficient since there's no invisible boost from being in the woodcutting guild.
