Magic logs detail animated.gif

Magic logs are logs that can be acquired using the Woodcutting skill from magic trees. Cutting magic trees requires a Woodcutting level of 75 or higher and yields 250 Woodcutting experience per log cut. Due to the slow speed at which magic trees are cut at this level, it is advised that players wait until they have a Woodcutting level of at least 85 before chopping magic trees. Players can expect to gain up to 130 magic logs per hour using a dragon axe.

Magic logs can be fletched into unstrung magic shortbows with a Fletching level of 80, granting 83.3 Fletching experience, or into unstrung magic longbows with a Fletching level of 85, granting 91.5 Fletching experience.

Magic logs can also be burnt with a Firemaking level of 75, granting 303.8 Firemaking experience.

Magic logs are needed for three quests: twelve for Desert Treasure, one for Mourning's End Part I, and three for unlocking the Gnome Stronghold balloon route (requirement for Monkey Madness II), requiring sixteen magic logs in total.

Obtaining magic logs[edit | edit source]

Aside from chopping magic trees, there are other ways to obtain magic logs, which is particularly useful for ironmen accounts.

They are available as a rare drop from the supply crates obtained at the Wintertodt minigame. This requires a minimum of level 50 Firemaking and the probability of receiving magic logs scales up with Woodcutting level.

They can also be obtained from Brimstone chest (1/30 chance) by completing Slayer tasks for Konar quo Maten if you have 75 combat and get a Brimstone key, and Larran's big chest (1/30 chance) if you are doing Wilderness Slayer and obtain a Larran's key. Magic logs can also be obtained from taking High Gambles with points from the Barbarian Assault mini game.

Towards the end of the Legends' Quest, it is possible to obtain them by allowing Yommi saplings to die and chopping them down, which seems to yield magic logs about 25% of the time. This cannot be done once the quest is complete! This is a slow and tedious process (~2–4 hours depending on luck), but is a viable alternative for those who do not have 75 Woodcutting, 58 Hunter to catch nature implings, or melee stats to do slayer. Approximately 200 seeds are required for 16 magic logs to complete Desert Treasure, Mourning's End Part 1 and the Gnome Stronghold Balloon Route.

Magic Logs can be obtained from Ent trunks left behind by Ents with 75 woodcutting.

In addition, there are several NPCs from whom players can receive magic logs, found in the list below.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Magic logs animated.gif
  • There is a glitch which can sometimes occur when opening your bank, or scrolling too quickly within your bank where the inventory icon may become animated. This also affects other animated items such as the Fire cape and Dramen branch.

  • The animated texture that covers Magic logs and Magic trees contains two purple pixels, which can occasionally be seen ingame.
