Helpful Tips: How to Get Better at Fortnite

Fortnite has great players in abundance. Chances are, you’ve already squared up against them in a game or two. If you still haven’t seen significant improvements despite pouring in dozens of hours playing the game or watching popular streamers/pro players, you’re probably frustrated. We understand this completely. Fortnite isn’t just some battle royale game where you can only shoot down your opponents; you also have to take your building skills into account. So without further ado, we’ll be showing you some useful tips to make you better at playing Fortnite and using certain Fortnite items. If you want to buy or sell a Fortnite account instead, you can have a look at our Fortnite Account Calculator.

Don’t Land in Usually Populated Areas

Most players rush to known areas such as Tilted Towers since it’s filled with items and weapons. While you can land there during the start of the game, chances are you’ll be dead after a few minutes since are so many opponents to fend off. As you get off the battle bus, you should take the opportunity to scan your surroundings to see how many players are within your vicinity. If there are too many people, you can simply change the direction and avoid them altogether. This increases your chances to survive until late in the game, and it also gives you ample time to scavenge good weapons.

Farm Mats Early Game

The worst thing that can happen while you’re in the thick of a fight is running out of materials. Building is what makes Fortnite so special, and to not be able to fully utilize it is a shame. To avoid this, farm the materials that you need as early as you can. We recommend whipping out your pickaxe as soon as you land in the area of your choice and start mowing things down. Whether it’s inside a house/building or the trees/rocks outside, get as many materials as you can. Don’t overdo it though, you don’t want it to take too much of your time. You’ll be able to collect the materials of enemies as well once you kill them, so your mats will increase over time until they max out.

Lower Your DPI

This is the tip that people often overlook. Lowering your sensitivity (whether you’re playing using a keyboard and mouse combo or a controller) will help you steady your aim for better accuracy during sniping sessions. Sometimes, this simple yet effective tweak is the answer to most players’ problems. It may take some getting used to if you normally play on a high DPI level, but trust us on this, it’ll level up your skills significantly once you grow accustomed to it.

Listen Carefully

Listening carefully can save your life multiple times. We recommend using headphones while playing, but the audio in Fortnite is already great even without using one, so it’s fine if you don’t have a headset lying around. Sounds such as footsteps, gunshots, and more should be treated as valuable info in a game such as Fortnite. This will minimize instances where opponents can get the jump on you and catch you off-guard.

Conclusion

While all of these tips can certainly help you, what will really make them effective is to have the willingness to learn. There are powerful Fortnite items that can be found all over the map, but they won’t be effective if you can’t use them well. We hope our tips and tricks will help you get better and will ultimately help you turn pro! Are there any tips that you’d like to pass on to budding Fortnite players?

A Brief Introduction to Path of Exile’s Item Mechanics

PoE Items

Path of Exile’s item mechanics almost looks like they require a doctorate to understand. From categorizing to item crafting, you have many factors to study to master it. Knowing how the mechanics work, however, is essential for your PoE currency hoarding or leveling up progress.

As you fight, items gather. Defeated enemies drop rates all kinds of PoE items. The more you kill, the more items you get. With a limited inventory space, you can’t collect all of them to sort later. How are you able to figure out which ones to leave and which to take?

Don’t fret! This guide will help you figure that out, among other things.

The Basics

Items have characteristics. Specifically, they have Rarity, Item Levels, and Affixes. PoE orbs don’t have the latter, but some can manipulate the characteristics of other magic items.

Rarity indicates the potential of a base item. There are four rarities, Normal, Magic, Rare, and Unique. Normal rarity items can be considered the ‘base’ and rawest form of that item type. It lacks any modifications higher rarities may have. As this characteristic increases, the amount of modifications the currency item can have also increased.

Unique items are a bit of an anomaly. As its name implies, each unique item has different sets of modifications from each other.

Item Levels determine how strong the modifiers on an item can be. Higher levels mean better modifications. These modifications are the Affixes, which manipulate the effects of the item. There are eight tiers for these modifications. The highest and most effective affixes are tier 1 ones.

With chaos orbs and lucky rolls, even normal rarity items can become valuable. How will you be able to judge though?

Judging Items

Generally, you’d want either Life modifying prefixes or Energy Shield modifying affixes on your equipment. The former modifies Maximum Life or Innate Defense (Armor or Evasion). The latter is more focused on Innate Defense and/or Stun and Block Recovery. You might find hybrid items, though they aren’t as valuable as pure ones.

Suffixes are a more complicated affair. What determines synthesized items possible suffixes is its type. Helmets may gain a bonus to Intelligence, while boots have increased Movement Speed. Something you can look at and instantly know to be valuable is a high-tier Elemental Resistance boost when you get elemental damage and elemental hit. If an item quantity has a 110% resistance to any element, you know it’s valuable. Chaos resistance less so, but some players would absolutely need it.

So, in summary, you need to figure out if it’s a Hybrid or not, then figure out if the modifier tiers are high enough. You can adjust these goals according to what you need. The last advice to give would be to research more and practice. Research the best modifier values for each item type. Then you should go and play to practice identifying the loot you get.

The more you play, the better you will get active skills at judging what’s valuable skill gem and what isn’t. This isn’t a race, so you don’t need to rush. Take your time to understand everything you need to. Most importantly, don’t forget to have fun as you go along.

Keep on enjoying Path of Exile!

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Revealed at Blizzcon

World of Warcraft Shadowlands

The recent Blizzcon 2019 event saw the announcement of a brand new expansion for World of Warcraft, titled Shadowlands. The new expansion is set for release next year, and sees newly converted-antagonist Sylvanas Windrunner showcasing his power across the whole of Azeroth. The next entry will have players setting aside their WoW Classic Gold from a brand new extension, as a follow-up to the Battle of Azeroth edges ever closer.

A new campaign in the afterlife

Blizzard took to the main stage of BlizzCon to show off a brand new cinematic trailer for the upcoming title, in wish we see Lich King Bolvar Fordragon, who you may remember from previous WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King. The King is thwarted by Sylvanas in Icecrown, and what happens next seems to set the foundations of what fans can expect from Shadowlands. The aspect of the afterlife will play a key role in the expansion, which is caused by the destruction of the Lich King’s crown.

As for the Shadowlands itself, it is revealed to be an infinite realm where players will have to align themselves with Shephards of the Dead, which will serve as the covenants in the game. The full covenant campaign will take you across new zones known as Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, Revendreth, and the Maw, and players will be offered new abilities that can be earned via leveling. These will be determined by the class that you choose, which offers bonuses depending on which ones that you choose.

Tower of the Damned

One of the most enticing aspects of the Shadowlands is the Tower of the Damned. Within the ghastly Maw, players will come across Torghast, Tower of the Damned, which provides one of the most re-playable segments of the entire expansion. The cursed prison is inhabited with unspeakable evil, in which rooms will chop and change to make a fresh experience. Awaiting the victor is the spoils of treasure after setting the spirits within free.

New Leveling System

What fans will be interested to know is that Shadowlands will bring in a brand new leveling system. If you are already at the max-level available, then you will begin the expansion at level 50, with a new level cap of 60. You will be able to use this new system to your advantage, as you take on the Army of the Dead into a brand new experience. The idea of the level cap being altered in such has way has been rumored for some time now and is something that fans had expected to happen at some point within the last few expansions. This system will be familiar to players who have been running through World of Warcraft Classic, so if you have managed to reach level 120, you will be scaled down to level 50 when Shadowlands releases next year.

As far as your character goes, there is a variety of new customization options at your disposal, regardless of what race you choose. So if you are looking to mix up your appearance, then this feature is definitely worth looking forward to. If you are looking at how alts will work, which are characters made by existing players who already have a character already, then these will have the option to level up as they would previously from the beginning or start completely anew. Past expansions will also be available to players, so you have the choice of doing so in Classic WoW, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor or Legion. Whichever you choose, the content will scale to a point where the leveling process works to cater to which expansion you select.

So, those who are enjoying spending their hard-earned WoW Classic Gold in the Vanilla WoW title of the game, prepare to take on a brand new expansion next year when the follow up to the critically acclaimed Battle of Azeroth lands. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is set for release in 2020!

Run Elder City Square for Path of Exile Orbs

Path of Exile Elder City Square

When you’re looking for Path of Exile maps to run for PoE currency farming, look no further than the Elder City Square. We’ll be listing why it’s a good map to run as well as some key notes for you to look at.

Why Elder City Square?

First off, you can loop its layout. Sure, it has alleys that branch off the main square, but at its most basic, it’s a loop. You can go around killing the mobs, only going to the center when facing off the bosses. This makes clearing the map easier. In turn, that lets you run it more times in a single sitting. That results in more PoE Chaos Orbs, Exalted Orbs, Jewellers Orb, Orb of Alchemy, Orbs of Alterations, Blessed Orbs, and Orb of Fusing for you in the long run.

Second, it has a good mob density. Loot piles up quickly, so you have to decide which to keep and which to throw. Keeping everything will make you less efficient if you have to go back and forth to your hideout just to unload your inventory. Using stricter filters to get the most valuable PoE Item and stuff can go a long way to keeping your efficiency up.

Lastly, the loot you can get from this map is quite valuable. With several runs, you’ll get back your investment and more. Sell all these magic items in bulk, which is more satisfying than selling small things after runs.

Additional Notes

Corrupt your maps with Vaal orbs. In addition to making your runs a little more challenging, it increases your potential for profit with a bigger or more valuable unique item loot pool.

Save up your awakened sextant by running maps with bad mods. Just try again in the next run. Since you’re not constantly rerolling, you get profit and spend less on your resources (simple sextant and Orbs of Scouring, for example).

Do your missions for bonus loot or resources. Otherwise, just keep them in mind. The chaos of battle sometimes makes it hard to keep track of what you want to do. Missions from Jun, Alva, Einhar, and Niko should be your priorities. Jun, Alva, and Einhar missions reward more loot. Niko awards more sulfate to use in Delves.

You, as an individual, have your own preference in running maps. The saying goes ‘there’s more than one way to skin a cat’ and that certainly applies here. You don’t have to follow Path of Exile guides or do what others are doing. They might be more efficient than you, but you have your own interpretation of ‘efficiency’. As long as you enjoy the game, you can play and run the map in any way you want.

Conclusion

Elder City Square is not the best farming map, per se. It is, however, still a good map to grind in, especially for Harbinger’s Shards. Rack up those Harbingers Orb, Ancient Orb, PoE orbs and PoE currency guides by running this map. You can just go round and round killing mobs, until the time comes to fight the bosses. Even then, they’re not much of a challenge. Runs finish quicker, you do more runs, you get more profit.

Enjoy Path of Exile!

Elder City Square FAQ

  1. What are the best maps for Elder Orb 3.8?   

    Alleyways Map and Armoury Map are the best options overall due to layout, monster count, and density. Choose Alleyways Map if you plan on using your Elder orb on Armoury Map, otherwise, we prefer Armoury. An alternative option is Mesa Map, which has a great layout but poor density and monster count.

  2. How does Elder influence work?     Elder Influence will always take over a node (map) if a node has Shaper Influence, it is adjacent to Elder Influence, and you run that map. Running a map here means clearing around 60% of monsters on it OR killing the boss. … Running an Elder Influenced map results in it losing Elder Influence.
  3. How is elder influence spreading?

  4. What are shaper influenced maps?                                                                                              Shaper influenced areas can contain additional enemies or hazards or enhances the map boss by the Shaper, making them more difficult. These areas have a chance to drop a rare Shaper item with at least one Shaper affix. Once a Shaper-influenced map is cleared, it will disappear

 

5 Tips You Should Be Aware of In OSRS

OSRS tips

Regardless of whether you are a newcomer to Old School RuneScape or a seasoned veteran, there is never a bad time to learn some new tricks to take with you along the way. Whether your objective is to collect as much OSRS Gold as possible or simply to traverse the many dungeons in the game, there are still some things that you should take on board.

Here are a few handy tips for you to use during your time in Gielinor.

Farm Running

Herb and Farm run can be an effective method for you to use during the game. Herb runs can be done around every hour or so and farming is something that will also be time-consuming; it takes a lot of dedication. The great thing about herb running is that it does not take that much time and can prove to be very profitable if you are willing to put the effort into it.

Once you are familiar with the process, these runs will become a very useful way for you to make a profit. If you do choose to put the time in, then you can make up to 10 times the amount you pay for seeds just by using this simple method. So with that in mind, be sure to read up on all things herb and farming before putting in the required time.

Achievement Diaries

Something that you could already be familiar with in OSRS is Achievement Diaries. Your Achievement Diary offers a set of one-time tasks that can bring a number of unique rewards. It is worth mentioning that this particular feature is only available to members, so free-to-play players will be out of luck here.

But if you are looking to get the most out of your game, then these diaries are certainly worth it. Not only will they increase your skills and rewards set, but they will also test your knowledge of the game and take you to different areas, offering a rather unique experience compared to other areas of OSRS. What’s more, there is a variety of difficulty levels ranging from Easy, to Medium, Hard, and Elite. Predictably, easier diaries have far lesser requirements for you to take on, while harder tasks will test your skills and prowess, but the rewards that you will reap will most definitely be worth the investment.

Cash Investment

Now, upon hearing that sub-title you may be thinking that this has real-world applications. Whether the premise does or doesn’t depend entirely on you as a person, but when it comes to OSRS, then investing your in-game cash is a complete no-brainer in certain under the right circumstance.

This is because if you are literally in possession of stacks of cash, and not doing anything with it, it is ultimately serving no real purpose. There is a multitude of ways for you to earn money in OSRS, and therefore there are many different ways for you to spend it too. Rather than just having it sit around doing nothing for you, it may be worth investing in ways that would cater to you. Not only can it be used to buy a staggeringly high amount of items in the game, but it can also help you invest in your character’s different skill areas. Spending your hard-earned cash on supplies to take on bosses and dungeons, or those that will enhance your skills is most certainly more of effective use of your money than having it just idle away.

Use Your Downtime Efficiently

There are a variety of tasks throughout OSRS that will require you to do some grinding. This includes what many refer to as AFK (away from keyboard) for a bit of downtime from the game while your task completes. Tasks that range from cooking to washing dishes can become rather time-consuming and not much fun to sit through or look at.

However, while these tasks are taking place, it doesn’t mean you can’t use your time effectively to complete other key tasks that you may have to do in the meantime. Ultimately, it’s best to continue to focus on the task at hand so you will reap the rewards of more XP gain, since you are unlikely to do so if you do AFK. If there are any other duties that you can take on as opposed to simply setting the game down, then you’ll save yourself more time in the long run.

The Tears of Guthix Minigame

Earlier, we discussed how achievement diaries propose a duty that is separate from many other features of the game, sort of like a typical form of side quest. In a similar vein, there are mini-games within OSRS that you should set aside a few minutes for. One of these mini-games is known as Tears of Guthix, and it should only take you a few minutes to overcome.

This game gives you the opportunity once-a-week to not only gain XP, but also work on any skills that you may not have been focusing on. This could be because you simply have not prioritized that skill set or you haven’t had the means to enhance it. Either way, Tears of Guthix can prove quite useful. You can find this mini-game in the Chasm of Tears, and you will have to have completed the Tears of Guthix quest to access it. You will also have to have earned at least 100,000 XP or a single quest point since last attempting it. This, of course, doesn’t apply if it is your first time to try it.

Once you have taken these five tips on board, you will certainly have a better understanding of how the game works and how you can make the most of it. Tasks such as grinding for OSRS Gold or doing the game’s equivalent of side quests can be time-consuming, but these methods are some of the most effective ones that you will find, so be sure to keep them in mind as you venture out into the wide world of Gielinor.

Top 5 Most Useful OSRS Items

Top 5 Most Useful OSRS Items

Just because certain items are great doesn’t mean you should break the bank just to purchase them. While expensive items in the game are oftentimes the ones being highlighted, we decided to do the exact opposite. We’ll be showing you the most useful items in OSRS; the ones that you don’t have to shell out a lot of Old School RuneScape Gold (OSRS gold) for. What with Old School RuneScape being one of the oldest MMORPGs around, it can be tough to find actual items that give the most bang for your buck considering there’s a lot to sift through. With that being said, let’s get started!

  1. Fire Cape

The Fire Cape is by far one of the most useful items in OSRS, and with good reason. This cape can be obtained as a reward when you complete the TzHaar Fight Cave. Not to be outclassed by the more powerful (and more expensive) Infernal Cape, the Fire Cape is considered to be the second-best melee cape in all of Old School RuneScape. Why is it so popular you ask? Well, it’s because of the bonuses it gives. By giving a +1 Attack bonus on all types of weapons and +11 Defense bonuses for all armor, you really can’t go wrong. The Fire Cape isn’t tradeable, though, so you won’t find it in the Grand Exchange. The good news is it’s easily obtainable by surviving all of the waves of monsters inside the Fight Cave.

  1. Rune Equipment

Rune items such as Rune axes, Rune platelegs, and Rune swords are highly-sought items in the free-to-play version of OSRS. While these are considered to be the best equipment in free-to-play worlds, they’re also great for members. Originally, they were deemed as expensive for F2P players. But things took a turn for the better after a while as prices began to drop rapidly due to the mini-game “Treasure Trails” gaining popularity. The surge in popularity resulted in these items being sold at low prices since there was suddenly too much of them. So, if you’re low on cash and in need of some good equipment, then you can easily find these in the Grand Exchange for just less than 500 OSRS gold each!

  1. Super Restore Potions

Potions are a staple in not just MMO games, but in other genres as well. In Old School RuneScape, there are tons of variations for this beloved item, but the one that you should go for is the Super Restore potion. This type of potion is incredibly useful as it can restore all of your stats that have been lowered either through combat or whatnot. Although it doesn’t restore Hitpoints or run energy, it’s a handy item to always have in your inventory during dire situations. At a price margin of 100-300 gold, it’s hard to NOT have this item under your belt at all times.

  1. Dragon Scimitar

The Dragon Scimitar is known to be one of the strongest scimitars in OSRS. While it can look expensive at about 100,000 gold if you purchase it from Daga of Ape Atoli, you can score it cheaper by buying one from the Grand Exchange instead. This weapon is great for pking (player killing), so if you’re into that, then we highly recommend that you include it in your must-buy list.

  1. Barrows Gloves

You’ve probably heard about Barrows Gloves from other people while surfing on the OSRS reddit page. The reason these gloves are always being recommended to players is that they offer the best offensive bonuses compared to any other gloves, period. This item isn’t something that you can easily get your hands on, though, as they require you to have at least 41 Defense before you can even equip them.

So, what do you think of our top 5 picks? Do you have any other items that you want to let us know about? To let other players save some Old School RuneScape Gold (OSRS gold), comment down below and let us know what you think might be better picked!

Gold Farming in OSRS Gold (2019 Edition)

OSRS Gold Farming

There are lots of ways to get filthy rich in OSRS, but some, if not most methods, are already outdated. Usual tips such as mowing down trees and selling the logs just won’t cut it anymore. To help newbies and oldies alike rake in the gold, we’ll be highlighting low level and high-level money-making methods so that there’s a method for everyone to employ. With that, here are five new refreshing ways of farming Old School Runescape Gold (OSRS gold). That can not only get you rich, but will also let you improve in other aspects of the game!

  1. Killing Chickens (For everyone)

If there’s one that hasn’t changed in OSRS, it’s the popular activity of killing chickens to farm gold. While we’ve stated that most ways to farm OSRS gold are outdated, this is an exception and is one of the most long-standing methods still relevant today. The people that can benefit from this the most are low-leveled players since killing chickens is a great way to train in combat all the while earning some dough. If you’re new around here, don’t worry, it’s legitimately impossible to get killed by a chicken! Whether you’re already clad in armor or you’re out of stock on food and have no means of defending yourself except with your fists, this suggestion is open for everyone. Chickens drop raw chicken meat, feathers, and bones. It doesn’t look like much, but all of these items are still worth money. For example, feathers are popular among players for fly-fishing and can stack in one inventory slot, making them easy to carry. As for bones and raw chicken meat, bones are used to level up a player’s Prayer stat, while raw chicken can be used to cook food. Nothing goes to waste here! This option can yield up to 50k per hour.

  1. Barging in the Stronghold (For low to mid-level players)

It’s pretty weird to see a company actually help players learn about account security by going inside a dungeon, but that’s exactly what the Stronghold of Security is for. This option is for players that are mid to high-level, but you can also run through this dungeon at level 3. Be wary though, as there might be some high-level monsters at the end of the stronghold that can one-shot you. To avoid this scenario, we recommend you to level up first and have 49-51 Combat. To go along with that, bring as much food as possible. There’s little doubt that you’ll be severely damaged by the monsters in the stronghold, since their combat skills increase as the levels progress, making them somewhat difficult for you to beat. Completing the Stronghold of Security will bank you 10k gold per run, along with some boots and a few emotes thrown in.

  1. Hunt and Trap Black Chinchompas (For high-level players)

To start this off, you’ll need 73 Hunter and 6 or more box traps. Note that this method isn’t something that anyone can do, so we listed this one for high-level players only. To start the hunt, you’ll have to go to level 32 tier Wilderness areas. Upon arrival, check where these Black Chincompasrespawn in the area and set your traps there. Simply wait for the Chinchompas to get shackled and harvest the loot that they drop. Big risks mean big rewards, so this hunt-and-trap method can net you up to 750k OSRS gold an hour.

Conclusion

Whether you’re a long-time OSRS player or a newbie looking to get by in the game, we hope that our 2019 money-making guide for Old School Runescape Gold(OSRS gold) has helped you. Are there any other effective ways to farm gold in OSRS? Let us know by leaving a comment down below!

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE GUIDE: HOW TO KILL THE MOLE

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE

Do not fear the Giant Mole in OSRS Mobile. It may seem like an intimidating creature at level 230, but with the proper equipment and the knowledge you’ll be getting from this guide, we dare say anyone can slay it and promptly lay it to rest! Killing the Giant Mole can earn you your fair share of OSRS Gold, and you can even gain more depending on your speed and luck. With our OSRS Giant Mole Guide, we’ll show you some tips when hunting this mid-level boss and how to prepare for it.

What is the Giant Mole (Talpidae Wysonian)?

The Giant Mole is a mid-level mole boss found in the caves under Falador Mole Lair Park. The Giant Mole is possibly one of the easiest bosses in Old School RuneScape to date. In fact, other than chasing the Mole around the caves as it burrows, there aren’t any more advanced mechanics than that. The main reason players kill the Giant Mole (most notably Ironmen) is to gather Mole Skins and Mole Claws, which can be traded to Wyson the gardener in Falador Shield Park for Birdsnests. Bird nests are always in demand because they’re the secondary Herblore ingredient to make Saradomin brews. As bird nests are quite difficult to get by through another method of killing, the Giant or Talpidae Wysonian is the fastest and most popular way in RuneScape, making it a great mid-level boss to farm up-on.

How to Find the Giant Mole(Talpidae Wysonian)

This Talpidae Wysonian monster can be found by using a spade on the mole holes in Falador Park  Garden. The mole lair is a rather dark place, so you will need to bring a light source with you. A bullseye lantern should be your first choice when it comes to that, as you save inventory space with, but a candle or a tinderbox will work just as well. The Talpidae Wysonian tends to respawn in the middle of the large center area of the dungeon.

Gearing Up

While there are no requirements to kill the Monster, we highly recommend adventurers like yourself to complete the Falador Hard Diary beforehand. To take on the mole, we also have stats that we recommend you should have. The Giant Mole has high defense against Magic and Ranged gear, so it’s best to go on Melee gear.

Requirements:

70 Attack speed & Strength/Range

45 Defense (Or 70+ with good armor without Prayer)

43 Prayer

50 Agility (Useful for exploring the caves)

When it comes to facing the Giant Mole, patience is the most important thing. It can sometimes take up to 10 minutes to find it after it has burrowed into the ground. Thankfully, the fight against the Talpidae wysonian is an easy one–just use the Dharok method. With the Dharok method, you’ll need to wear Dharok the Wretched’s equipment with low Hitpoints to utilize its set effect of higher damage at lower hitpoints. Use your Dwarven Rock Cake to bring your HP down to 1 in order to maximize your damage out. But keep in mind that when camping low health hitpoints the Giant can easily kill you, so the prayer “Protect from Melee” should be enabled.

Have the lightest inventory possible, just less than 1kg. Since you need to do a lot of running, a light inventory with some energy potions and an agility level of 50+ is recommended. It may also be beneficial for you to bring teleport runes if you’re at a much lower level, but if you’re a high-level player, you should be alright by simply operating your jewelry right from your combat stats menu to change items or drop tables to whatever you prefer.

Rewards

The average loot per kill of the Giant Mole is 19,599 OSRS Gold. Most of the loot (rare drops), namely 80.9% of it comes from the mole claws and mole skins. Giving these mole parts to Wysonin exchange for bird nests makes it profitable; however, due to the constantly changing prices on the Grand Exchange, the price will dwindle. Luckily, since bird nests are continuously in high demand for people who are into Herblore, it’s an item that’ll never go super cheap.

OSRS – WHAT IS THE BLAST FURNACE?

OSRS Blast Furnace Guide

While playing Old School Runescape, you will come across various methods which you can use to farm RuneScape Gold. One such method is the use of the OSRS Blast Furnace, which is an effective way for players to rack up OSRS Gold and the currency that they will require on their journey. Thankfully, the Blast Furnace is a low-level requirement way of doing so, but you’ll need to know a number of things before using it. This includes knowing exactly what the furnace is, how it works, and ultimately what you will need in order to use it.

What is the Blast Furnace?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Blast Furnace Old School Runescape, fear not as you are in the right place. Available as a members-only minigame, the Blast Furnace can be found in Keldagrim, and is used for players to smelt bars with. You can find 15 Blast Furnace worlds within OSRS, which are operated by dwarves known as Dumpty, Numpty, Pumpy, Stumpy, and Thumpy.

Essentially, all a player has to do is allow the dwarves to operate the furnace for them, so the player can use this time to place the ores back and forth onto the conveyor belt within. However, in order to use the furnace effectively, there are a number of requirements that you should keep in mind.

Requirements for the Blast Furnace

For you to be able to use the Blast Furnace, there are a few requirements that you will have to meet. First thing you will want to do is complete a particular quest, known as the Giant Dwarf quest. This will give you access to dwarven city of Keldagrim, also referred to as the home of the Blast Furnace. The second thing you’ll need is a Coal Bag, which will come in particularly handy on your quest. It is reusable, non-degradable and holds up to 27 pieces of coal, and can be accessed as a reward item from Prosepector Percy’s Nugget Shop for 100 Nuggets.

Since you’ll be doing a lot of running around in this area, it would be prudent to make sure that you take Stamina Potions with you, and considering wearing Graceful Clothing which will reduce your weight. There are a couple of other items that could speed up the process of using the furnace when you get round to it, so you should definitely keep in mind the use of the Ice Gloves and the Goldsmith Gauntlets to not just speed things up, but mainly to cover all bases depending on what kind of smithing you want to do.

When you arrive at the Blast Furnace, be sure to have level 60 Smithing, or you will need to pay a 2500-coin fee to smelt bars for 10 minutes. The Ice Gloves previously mentioned will also speed up the cooldown process, and you can reduce your initial entrance fee with the Ring of Charos. You can also choose to pay the foreman to help you along if you are below level 60 Smithing, which is worth considering. The foreman will also let you use the Blast Furnace Anvil in OSRS if you have reached level 60 Smithing, so that you can smith your bars.

How Does it Work?

To get started on the furnace, simply place your coal/ore onto the conveyor belt as previously mentioned. From there, you can use the Ice Gloves to cool them down or use a bucket of water on your smelted bars. You can then collect your bars from the dispenser and repeat the process as many times as you require with the resources that you have. The task will be completed by the assigned dwarf to that world, which costs 72,000 coins per hour.

In terms of what you can place on the belt, you are restricted to 56 primary ore and 28 gold ore. Be sure not to disconnect your game during this process as you will lose the ores that you have placed on the conveyor belt. If you want to gain some additional experience for the gold that you have smelted, then be sure to pick up the Goldsmith Gauntlets that we mentioned earlier on.

Using tools like the OSRS Account Value Calculator will give you an idea of what everything is worth, and with that in mind, there is a great money-making method at your service when it comes to the Blast Furnace. For example, Mithral Bars can fetch a profit of 708,585, making 3,600 per hour gaining XP of 108,000 per hour. If you want to go one step further, Adamantite Bars and Runite Bars will bring in profits of 1,259,385 and 1,429,335 respectively.

Conclusively, the Blast Furnace is a great way of leveling up your skills and gaining OSRS Gold in the process. So, if getting your Runescape Gold up and improving a particular set of skills along the way is something that appeals to you, then be sure to make your way to Keldagrim and get started!
