Mahogany Homes

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mahogany Homes is a construction company led by Amy, the company's founder, and has four offices throughout Gielinor: Falador (where their main office is), Varrock, East Ardougne, and Hosidius. The construction offices are all located in or near the Estate Agent offices in each city.

Players who have a player-owned house can talk to Amy in Falador to sign up and afterwards talk to her or Marlo, Ellie or Angelo in the aforementioned cities, where they can be given various tiers of construction jobs depending on the player's Construction level. Each tier will require a different type of plank.

Construction contracts[edit | edit source]

Players can choose to take on any of the following four tiers of Construction Contracts by speaking to a Contractor, assuming they meet the level requirement:

Example inventory for contract runs is shown to the right: teleport tablets, plank sack, rune pouch for NPC Contact, hammer, saw, steel bars, and planks. A Ring of Wealth can be used instead of Falador teleport tablets to get a teleport closer to jobs and save on inventory space. It is recommended to use a staff of air or equivalent to save on air runes, though this may be substituted for Amy's saw or the Imcando hammer if additional inventory space is preferred. (If you have a high enough magic level and teleports in your POH you can use Spellbook Swap along with an air staff and law runes in your rune pouch to give yourself another 4 inventory spaces)

All jobs, regardless of tier, will assign players to a random NPC out of twelve in any of the four cities. Once players arrive at the client's home, they will be informed of what their job is, which can involve building furniture or repairing existing ones. They do not have to speak with the client before building.

The player will need a hammer and a saw to build and repair furniture (Note: Nails are never needed). They will also need a decent amount of planks corresponding to the tier of contract, and often one steel bar as well. (Note: Bob, Jeff and Noella never need steel bars).

Players will use their own supplies to complete the jobs, and once the job is complete, they will receive carpenter points and Construction experience, they will also be offered a cup of tea from their client before they leave. Accepting the cup of tea restores the player's run energy to 100%. Players can then return to an Estate Agent's office or use the NPC Contact spell to save travel time. Teleports to each city are recommended to reduce travel time. Additionally, some players may find moving their house to Hosidius helpful to easily reach Barbara's house. If a player does not wish to move their house Xeric's talisman and Hosidius teleport tabs are both good ways to reach her.

The contract level requirements are boostable, and the furniture level requirements can also be boosted with a crystal saw (repairs do not require boosts). Boosts should be used with caution however, as construction contracts cannot be cancelled.

Below lists the cities and clients players may enter a contract in, as well as the materials required.

Experience costs[edit | edit source]

Each plank gives a specific amount of experience depending on whether it is used to build or repair something. They give less than if used in a player-owned house, however the player is awarded a substantial amount of construction experience once they complete the contract. Pieces needing repairs typically include a hat stand, mirror, or range. These pieces only require one plank or bar per repair. Pieces that need to be built typically include tables, beds, dressers, cupboards, etc. Higher tier contracts will typically require more furniture to be repaired or replaced, resulting in more materials being used per contract on average.

Item XP/Material (Build) XP/Material (Repair) GP/XP (Build) GP/XP (Repair) Completion XP Total average XP per plank

With high focus and efficient use of teleports, as well as the NPC Contact Spell from the Lunar Spellbook, one can expect higher rates (~20%) than mentioned above.

Experience rates per hour can increase when using a plank sack due to less time spent banking. In conjunction with the NPC Contact spell it can also increase the chance of being able to do two consecutive contracts located very close to each other without having to go back to an office or bank, which significantly decreases travel time. When using the carpenter's outfit, players may be able to achieve up to 240,000 experience per hour depending on their efficiency.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Once a job is complete, players will receive carpenter points dependent on their job tier and Construction experience. When using a plank sack alongside efficient teleports and the NPC Contact spell, players can expect to complete around 40-45 contracts per hour. Experience awards do not stack with carpenter's outfit.

The cost per point can be found from the average cost per contract mentioned above. For instance, using mahogany planks would cost an estimated 10,193,444 in materials to obtain the full Carpenter set.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
10 September 2020
(update)

  • Added furniture to Noella's house in Ardougne and cleaned the mirror.
  • Fixed a grammatical error in the Mahogany Homes messages.
  • Mahogany Homes' offices now leave their doors open for easier access.
  • The Mahogany Homes Reward Shop now highlights items players cannot afford in grey instead of red, and display points differently.
2 September 2020
(update)

The amount of carpenter points given for completing a contract has been increased by one for each tier. For contracts that were completed prior to this update, players will be given the extra points they would have gained once they log in.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Furniture in need of construction will be "zoned" on their tile, similar to how projects are zoned with ground markings before being started.
  • When an Old Bookshelf is replaced with a new one by the player, the bookcase will still be called an Old Bookshelf. Unlike this, when the teak tables in Bob's house are replaced, the name will change to reflect that.
  • It appears that the hotspots in the houses are somehow linked. Removing furniture in the house you're renovating causes a furniture piece in other houses to also become hotspots. This is most obvious in Norman's house in Falador: removing the northern-most dresser on the upper floor causes the table in Larry's house (farther north) on the upper floor to turn into a hotspot as well, and is fully visible when zoomed out all the way.
  • In Runescape, Construction Contracts were released on 16 November 2020. They are the same premise as Mahogany Homes.
