Woodcutting Guild

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Woodcutting Guild is a members-only guild located in the south-western corner of Hosidius. In order to enter the guild, players must have at least level 60 in Woodcutting (which can be boosted), as well as 75% Hosidius favour .

While inside the guild, players will receive an invisible +7 level boost to their Woodcutting. This boost will stack with any existing boosts the player already has[1], such as the visible +3 boost from using the dragon axe's special attack. However, the invisible boost will not allow a player to perform actions above their base level.

In addition, although boosting above 99 in Woodcutting normally would have no effect on gathering rates, an exception is made while in the guild, which allows players to gather logs at a faster rate with a boosted Woodcutting level (both visible and invisible) above 99 by either the dragon axe or woodcutting cape[2].

Entering the Woodcutting Guild is a task in the hard Kourend & Kebos Diary.

Within the guild players can find the following types of trees:

Ent dungeon[edit | edit source]

The Woodcutting Guild dungeon found below the guild can be accessed through the cave entrance near the sawmill. There are 22 Ents that resides within the dungeon. It is the only place outside the Wilderness where players can kill and woodcut the Ent remains. Unlike the Wilderness Ents, the Ents in the dungeon will only reward one noted log instead of two for every successful chop. Players can also find a bank in the south-west section of the dungeon. The dungeon requires woodcutting level 60 to enter, so if you entered the guild using a boost and want to enter the dungeon, you must either hurry, boost again or level up.

Sawmill[edit | edit source]

There is a sawmill available for use, which is much closer to the bank compared to the main sawmill in the Lumber Yard north-east of Varrock.

Perry's Chop-chop Shop[edit | edit source]

Perry's Chop-chop Shop can be found by the entrance inside the guild. This is the only shop in Old School RuneScape that sells rune axes.

Within the shop, there is a bank deposit box that is not shown on the minimap, which is convenient for the 3 yew trees directly north of the shop and the 1 yew tree and several maple trees west of the shop.

Shrine[edit | edit source]

A player offers bird's eggs to the shrine.

The shrine is a large bird's nest located outside the entrance to the Ent dungeon. It is marked by the Altar icon.png on the minimap. Players can offer bird eggs to this shrine to receive 100 Prayer experience and a bird nest containing tree or fruit tree seeds. There is also a 1/300 chance of receiving a piece of the evil chicken outfit for each egg offered.

Personalities[edit | edit source]

Soundtrack[edit | edit source]

The music played in the woodcutting guild has changed several times throughout its history. In 2016 Country Jig, the main theme of house Hosidius, was played, but after complaints that it didn't really suit the guild, this theme was changed to The Forlorn Homestead.

In 2019, the theme changed again to A walk in the Woods.
