Power levelling

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Power levelling or grinding is the term used when a player is trying to raise their level in a certain skill in as short a time as possible, without worrying about making a loss or gaining other resources. This may involve using almost every possible resource available, making up for the loss when the target level has been achieved.

A good example is when a player trains Mining, dropping ores instead of banking or selling them. This saves travelling time, which makes levelling faster, but no monetary profit is gained. Gaining a cash pile from training won't matter during power-levelling, because your main goal is the fastest experience possible.

Cost of power levelling[edit | edit source]

Because power levelling is focused on speed rather than profit, it can be fairly expensive to power level, or may forgo potential profit, depending on the method. Power levelling often sees items being dropped in favour of saving time to bank them. However, in some cases (such as cutting maple trees at Seers' Village), it might be more efficient to bank the logs instead of dropping them as it can be faster as the bank is fairly close, and therefore, more profitable.
