Trading sticks detail.png

Trading sticks are the main currency of the jungle village of Tai Bwo Wannai on Karamja. They can be received by participating in the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, selling items to Gabooty's Tai Bwo Wannai Cooperative, or killing Karamja-related monsters such as jogres.

Acquiring trading sticks[edit | edit source]

Players receive favour with the villagers of Tai Bwo Wannai by participating in the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. If players talk to the villagers and tell them they've done some work, they will give the player some trading sticks in exchange for some of the player's favour. Wearing pieces of the villager clothing set will cause the villagers to give you more trading sticks exchanged to favour. This is the most efficient way to get trading sticks since players can also train several skills while playing the minigame.

Note: Players need to have repaired the fence in the village and then spoken to Murcaily before the villagers will have the option to give them trading sticks.

Players can buy or mine semi-precious gems such as Opal, Jade and Red Topaz from the Grand Exchange and sell it to Gabooty for trading sticks if one doesn't want to do Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup. Mining the Shilo Village Gem rocks for semi-precious gems and selling them to Gabooty is the fastest way to obtain trading sticks for Ironmen.

Uses[edit | edit source]

The Village Shop[edit | edit source]

Gabooty's shop is located within the fenced area of Tai Bwo Wannai. Players can trade for premade gnome cocktails, villager clothes, gem machetes, semi-precious gems (opal, jade, red topaz), and gout tubers, which are normally out of stock.

Hardwood Grove[edit | edit source]

Players can pay 100 trading sticks to access the Hardwood Grove, an enclosed area near the eastern end of the village containing mahogany and teak trees.

Rionasta's Parcel Service[edit | edit source]

Players can, for a fee of 10 trading sticks per item, ship items from their inventory to their bank via Rionasta. This is particularly handy when cutting wood in the Hardwood grove, playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame or banking loot obtained from Brimhaven Dungeon via Banisoch's entrance.

No forms of currency can be shipped using this method.

Banisoch[edit | edit source]

5000 trading sticks can be used as a one-time payment to Banisoch to access a shortcut to the metal dragon area of the Brimhaven Dungeon.
