Go the Distance: OSRS Range Training Guide

 

OSRS Range Training GuideIn OSRS, aside from the fact that bows look cool, Ranged is a good skill to grind because it grants you considerable accuracy compared to other combat-related skills. However, it can be quite difficult to level up. If you’re clueless about how you can go about going from 1 to 99, here’s an invaluable guide.

Shooting With Style

Before you go off and start shooting, you need to know that there are three styles for Ranged, namely:

  • Accurate – With this style, you receive 3 unwritten bonus levels in ranged, making your shots more accurate. This boost makes it a recommended choice for those who have only recently taken up the skill. And for even more perks, every point of damage earns you 4 EXP in Ranged and 33 EXP in hit points.
  • Rapid – This style gives you the same EXP rates for every point of damage. It also allows you to shoot more often. Be warned, however, because your shots will be less likely to hit their marks.
  • Longrange– What makes this particular style unique is that it splits EXP bonuses to Ranged and Defence, with each receiving 2 per hit. Although it has a significantly slower rate of fire than the other two, it more than makes up for it with the 3 unwritten bonus Defence levels. Aside from utility purposes, this is for players who want to shoot two birds in one stone and level up their Defence as they grind for Ranged.

Cannon Law and its Alternatives

Now we move on to the weapons. The Ranged arsenal is a wide one, but if you want to rake in the most EXP in the shortest amount of time, here are your best options:

  • OSRS Cannon – Also known as the Dwarf Multicannon, you can use this to grind Ranged from level 1 to 80 simply by shooting caged ogres in the Combat Training Camp. It’s not only cheap, but also a fast and convenient way to grind because you no longer have to move elsewhere for a long time.
  • Throwing Knives– You throw these things to rock crabs in order to gain a steady stream of EXP. While the iron throwing knives used to be popular and are still a viable way to grind, it’s been superseded by steel and mithril knives as they offer the same attack speed and better range for less OSRS gold.
  • Mithril Darts – Upon reaching level 20, you’ll unlock Mithril Darts. Aside from their great speed and coveted bonuses, they’re also quite affordable.

Definitely Not Cannon

Once you get past level 20, here are the weapons you should use if you’re not going to stick with the OSRS Cannon.

  • Bow and Crossbow – If you want to a cheap way to level up in your early twenties, you can start with the Shortbow and Bronze Arrows. Once you reach level 28, get yourself a Dorgeshuun Crossbow. It’s a cost-effective option, as the bone bolts are only worth three coins each. Plus, with crossbows, you don’t need to finish any quests just to unlock and equip them.
  • Karil’s Crossbow – at level 70, Karil’s Crossbow is a highly underrated weapon. It fires bolt racks and is more like a shortbow, which means it has a slower rate of fire but higher damage. Also, you won’t be able to equip a shield while wielding it, but the fact that it deals so much damage more than makes up for it. Besides, you’re a Ranged user anyway so you’ll be at a safe distance.
  • Chincompas and Blowpipes – after level 80, you can then move on to Ape Atoll Dungeon and shoot chincompas and red skeletons. A blowpipe is also a good alternative.

So there you have it–the styles and tools of the trade! Now that you know them, what are you waiting for? Aim to be a master marksman in Gielinor! It’s one of the best things you can be.

Every Little Thing You Do: OSRS Magic Training Guide

OSRS Magic Training GuideOne of the most useful skills in RuneScape–and of course, also in Old-School RuneScape–is magic. While it’s chiefly a combat skill, it has also a wide variety of utility-related applications, making it one of the more practical skills for players to level up. You can even use it to farm OSRS gold! Plus, it’s not exactly a difficult skill to level up in the first place, and this is true even for non-member players. Nevertheless, it’s pretty understandable to ask for help every so often.

So for your reading pleasure, here is a (not-so)short guide to efficiently raise your Magic skill level.

From 1 to 19, Then to 25

For levels 1 to 19, simply casting magic on weak monsters like goblins, cows, and monks at Edgeville Monastery would be enough. As an alternative, you can splash, which doesn’t require much attention at all. In fact, some would even do it at high levels because of the same reasons.

Once you get past level 19, use the best strike, bolt, or blast spells in your arsenal. Putting on Magic gear such as Wizard Hat, Amulet of Magic, Wizard Robes or Zamorak Robe, and Magic or Elemental Staff will make the process more efficient.

Good targets would be Hill Giants and Hobgoblins in Edgeville Dungeon, as they drop limpwurt roots; lesser demons in Wizard Tower, which drop runes and other important items, and Al Kharid Warriors.

You can also finish the Imp Catcher and Witch’s Potion quests respectively for 875 and 325 Magic experience.

From Level 25 to 55

Upon reaching level 25, you have two methods to choose from: cheap and expensive.

For the former, you can repeatedly Splash curse to gain Magic experience. Do not cast it directly at an enemy, as it will trigger the spell’s cooldown–something that won’t happen if you just splash it. Recommended gear for this would be the Staff of Earth and armor that provides negative magic bonuses, preferably up to -65 or even lower. Skeletons at level 1 Wilderness, the caged Monk of Zamorak at Varrock Place, or the caged Lesser Demon in Wizards’ Tower.

Each cast gives 29 experience; that would approximately be at 33,000 experience per hour.

As for the expensive method, start with Varrock Teleport at level 25, Lumbridge Teleport at level 31, and finally, Falador Teleport at 37. It’s recommended that you have a staff of air equipped, as using teleport costs 3 air runes.

You don’t have to commit to one particular method; you can even switch up from time to time if you think that would be better for you. Either way, regardless of which method you choose, just continue doing so until you reach level 55.

From 55 Onwards

At level 55, you’ll be doing the same thing until level 99: casting High-Level Alchemy on different items. Those who stick to this method usually go for Gold Bars, rune equipment, adamant equipment, and others. This method is often costly, but it yields 65 Experience per cast, which is definitely not bad. In addition, some players manage to make up for lost money, or even make a profit through this particular method of Magic training.

Another method to raise Magic at this level is “tele alching”, a method which, as the name suggests, combines the properties of High-Level Alchemy and Teleporting. To do this, alch an item, teleport right after, click the high alch before spawning, and click the item right after spawning. This is done so that you won’t miss a tick when performing this particular method. Do note, however, that Falador is the best target location for this method, as it yields the most EXP for the Teleportation Spell.

There’s nothing like Magic at your fingertips, so it’s best that you make the best of it. So hopefully, these tips will help you do exactly just that. After all, who doesn’t want Magic?

Repairs Complete: Accomplishing The Architectural Alliance Quest for OSRS

From its colossal size alone, Zeah, Old-School RuneScape’s exclusive continent – because it’s only in OSRS and is only accessible to members – offers a plethora of possibilities that coupled with handsome rewards, including OSRS gold. Among them are quests, as there are lots of them that can only be found in Zeah. And one of the most important quests in Zeah is Architectural Alliance. It’s by no means a short quest, and it can get pretty complicated at times, thus the need for a guide—exactly like this one.

Not-So-Few Recommendations

Before taking on the quest, it’s strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with Zeah’s Favour system, and has already completed Client of Kourend before starting this quest. Accomplishing the latter will help you understand the former, and will give you info about Kourend’s background lore, which in turn will help you appreciate the quest a whole lot more. Other than that, it will give you a bit of headstart, as the Kourend Favour Certificate, which is a reward of the quest in question, allows you to receive 20% Favour on the house of your choice. This will greatly help you save time that would otherwise be spent on earning Favour, which could be rather painstaking.

Aside from those, here are other strongly-recommended skills and feats you should possess)

  • 42 Woodcutting (strongly recommended)
  • 15 Hunter
  • 65 Mining and at least 53 Smithing
  • 25 Cooking or higher (65 is preferred)
  • Ability to kill a lot of level 53 and 62 Lizardmen (this is so that you can gain Favour with Shayzien house)

If you still want to take on the quest despite not having those recommendations, it’s okay. Here are the hard requirements:

  • 30 Crafting
  • 42 Mining
  • 10 Slayer, or have started Plague City

Doing Huge Favours

To start the mini-quest–a misnomer, as it can take quite some time to finish–talk to Hosa. You’ll find him near King Rada I in Great Kourend. He’ll be telling you that he wants to rebuild the statue of Rada I in the center of the city, as a storm damaged it. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to receive help from a Great Architect of any of the five houses. It is then up to you to request assistance from all five of them.

However, in order to talk to a Great Architect, you need to first get 100% Favour of his house. This varies for each house. Given how extensive the steps for achieving this in every house is, you’ll have to look it up. Do note that once you have achieved 100% Favour for a particular house, you’ll need to speak to its respective Great Architect. Failing to do so and then proceeding to earn Favour for another house will cause you to lose Favour from the one you’ve already capped.

After maxing Favour for all houses and talking to all the Great Architects, you’ll find them near the statue in the middle of Great Kourend. Talk to any of them, and then there will be a cutscene where the Great Architects will be throwing rocks on the statue in order to repair it (don’t ask; this is Gielinor). And voila, the king’s statue has finally been rebuilt. As a reward, you will now unlock the Xeric’s Heart Teleport on Xeric’s Talisman, which will allow players to teleport back to the statue.

RuneScape is all about those simple yet fun quests, and Architectural Alliance can definitely be considered both. So now that you know how to finish this quest, you should definitely take them on—and we men right now.

Easy to Miss Basics: OSRS Tips You Probably Didn’t Know

Easy to Miss Basics: OSRS Tips You Probably Didn’t Know

Despite being a decade-old game with features ten years behind the base game, Old School RuneScape (OSRS)has some OSRS tips and tricks that even some long-time players probably don’t know exist. Perhaps you don’t know all the tricks of the trade that’s why we’re giving you the lowdown. Read up and make your OSRS life easier with these pointers.

Gold Amulets for Sale

Gold is one of the most significant resources players should have in the game. It’s important for players to get a chunk of OSRS gold as early as possible. Earning gold in earlier OSRS powerleveling, however, can be time-consuming, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t simpler ways like crafting gold amulets.

In fact, crafting gold is doable with F2P players, which requires only level 8 Crafting, and its time improves the skill in question. Aside from the necessary skill level, you need OSRS gold bars and an amulet mold to craft gold amulets. Gold bars cost 93 Old School RuneScape Gold points, while gold amulets are usually sold for 159G, a 66GP profit. Once you start racking in lots of OSRS Gold, it will feel rewarding.

Going for Cheap Wine

In real life, wine is pricey. On the other hand, in OSRS, wine is much cheaper than lobsters and expensive fish. So, what does wine have to do with those two dropping items? Well, lobsters and fish are what players usually buy or sell so that they can use safe space spots again when they’re training for Range or Magic. Although lobsters are 200GP and only restore 11HP, wine is a whopping forty times cheaper for 5GP, and it heals just as much. The downside is that it reduces attack by 2. Then again, since you’re investing in Range and Magic, it’s safe to say that it’s your bread and butter to your combat game, so this shouldn’t be problematic.

Your Cat for Death

Selling your pet cat for Death runes may seem like a cold thing to do, but if you’re focused oriented and not too sentimental, then go for it. First, knock out Gertrude’s Cat quest. Afterward, you’ll be able to sell your cat for Death runes to a citizen in West Ardougne. The older your cat is the more runes. A fully-grown cat fetches for 200 Death Runes. It’s considerably easier to grow a cat since it only takes three hours for a cat to become fully developed. In that span of time, you’ll have to pet the cat and feed it sardines. Then, you sell price the cat. Somewhat sad, but hey, it works.

Unlimited Tokens

If you want tokens at the Warrior’s Guild but don’t want to spend tokens to earn more, there’s an easy way to handle it. First, have 100 tokens to enter the Cyclops Room (don’t worry because you won’t use a single token). To pull off this trick, just enter the room, kill one of the Cyclops, go back out, and reenter. Since the one-limit timer starts every time you get in, you won’t consume any tokens.

Something to consider if you’re not aware, you can prayer-flick more than one prayer at a time (three to be exact). A solid combination includes (1) Attack Prayer, (2) Defense Prayer, and (3) Strength Prayer.

These handy and not-so-well-known OSRS tips can step up your gameplay. Even though these tips aren’t groundbreaking, they’ll make your life easier, so give them a shot.
