AFK Training Methods[edit | edit source]

Here you'll find some of the AFK training methods I've used to level up skills while at work. There's a balance between XP rates, cost, and amount of attention required. Keep in mind that most of these are definitely not the fastest or most efficient ways to level a skill, just the most brainless. Use these when you would have not been playing otherwise.

A good tool for AFK training is Chrome Remote Desktop. You can let Runescape run on your home PC or laptop and every so often remote into your machine to click on the game and make sure you don't log out (or to freshen up if in NMZ). The benefit of this over Runescape Mobile is it doesn't take up your phone battery and won't log you out if you leave the app or lock your phone for an extended amount of time.

Attack, Defense, Strength[edit | edit source]

Nightmare Zone[edit | edit source]

The Nightmare Zone is the best place to AFK train any melee skill. I used an Abyssal whip on Controlled stance to max out my Attack, Defense, and Strength in one go. You could use Dharok's set if you want to only train Strength and achieve better results. All you'll need is a Dwarven rock cake, the best melee equipment you can use, and the best weapon you have with the Controlled style. First, rack up enough points to purchase around 110 Absorption potions (110,000 points). Then, start a Normal Custom Rumble and enable only the following bosses (minimum of 5 required, listed in order of preference):

  1. Trapped Soul
  2. Count Draynor
  3. Sand Snake
  4. King Roald
  5. The Kendal
  6. Tree spirit
  7. Khazard warlord

If you don't have at least 5 of these bosses, you'll have to go do their respective quests to unlock them first.

Once you are in the dream, guzzle or eat the Rock cake until you are at 1HP. Then drink Absorption potions until you have 1000 absorption points. Enemies will now damage your absorption points instead of your HP and damage will be capped at whatever your HP value is. Stand in the middle of the room and let the enemies attack you (make sure Auto Retaliate is on). You will need to lower your HP and top off you absorption points every 20 minutes or so. Set up an alarm to go off every 20 minutes to remind you and you are well on your way to maxed melee stats.

Ranged[edit | edit source]

Nightmare Zone[edit | edit source]

The Nightmare Zone again! Use the same NMZ setup as for melee training above, except bring the best ranged equipment you can use and a cheap to use ranged weapon (Bone crossbow or Mithril darts). It should still be around 20 minutes before you have to lower HP and top off absorption points again, but keep an eye on it at first to get the exact timing down for your Defense level.

Magic[edit | edit source]

Nightmare Zone[edit | edit source]

Good old NMZ! Use the same NMZ setup as for melee training above, except bring a chest and pants with decent defenses and not too much negative Magic bonuses (Black d'hide or Void armour), your best magic equipment for the rest of the slots, a Smoke staff, and tons of Mind runes. You will be casting Fire strike over and over. It should still be around 20 minutes before you have to lower HP and top off absorption points again, but keep an eye on it at first to get the exact timing down for your Defense level. An issue with this method is you will most likely lose more NMZ points than you gain, so you might have to replenish points in Hard mode using another method every now and then to afford more Absorption potions.

Plank Make[edit | edit source]

Plank Make was just recently made into a spell that can be autocast. It provides good XP and even profit if you cast it on Mahogany logs. The issue is you will need at least 86 Magic to cast it and a fair amount of capital to start. If you have those, you can just live at the GE making planks until 99.

Fishing[edit | edit source]

Barbarian Fishing[edit | edit source]

For AFK Fishing, Barbarian fishing is the way to go. Not only will you train Fishing, but Agility and Strength as well! You will need at least 45 Fishing, 15 Agility, and 15 Strength to unlock this method of fishing. You'll also need a Barbarian fishing rod and tons of Feathers. Head over to the lake near Otto's Grotto and get to work on a fishing spot there. Fish until your inventory is full, drop all the fish, repeat until 99.

Mining[edit | edit source]

Motherlode Mine[edit | edit source]

The Motherlode Mine is the ideal place for AFK Mining training. It requires at least 30 Mining to start, though 54 Agility and the completion of the Easy and Medium Falador Achievement Diaries to unlock the shortcut near the bank will greatly increase XP gains. You'll also make some money training this way, as well as making progress towards the Prospector kit and some other cool unlocks. At 72 Mining you can access the top level and this method becomes even more AFK.
