Introduction

While looking for a hunting guide to use when I was around level 10 hunter, all I found were many guides saying the same thing, telling you what to do to get the best experience. To me, nothing is fun if you only have one route you can take, choice is good. So in this guide, it shows all of the ways to get to the landmark level of 63 hunting.



This guide is an upgrade of The Beginners Guide to 63 Hunter, which was also created by myself. It is also similar to another guide I posted. I decided to limit it back down to 63 hunter, as that is what proved best.



Experience per hour is also coming soon. I need to find the time to get accurate results, but hopefully they will be available soon.



This guide is also exclusive to tip.it and Draynor. It has not been posted anywhere else.



How to use this guide

I have tried to make this guide follow the clearest layout possible. Each level range has its own collapsible box, and within these boxes show all the possible ways of getting to the next level range. You can then follow the different boxes as you progress. Still with me? Well, it is easier to understand when actually see it.



As this is a pretty long guide, using CTRL + F to help find a specific level range or section is a great idea. It is picture intense which may be a problem for dial-up users, but I am sure most of you would prefer to have pictures to help explain.



Introduction to the hunter skill


Levels 0 - 9


Levels 9 - 20


Levels 20 - 29


Levels 29 - 43


Levels 43- 59


Levels 59- 63


Red Chinchompas




The End

You have reached the end of my guide. Hopefully you will have found some of the information within useful for training hunter. If you would be kind enough to leave a few encouraging comments, it would be much appreciated. Thank you for reading, and good luck with your hunting!



Please do not re-post, quote or claim this guide as your own without permission from myself. I worked hard on this guide, and I don’t want people to claim it as their own.

Wow, great guide, i'm currently trying for 99, started at 46, and been using it for those quick levels. Just a couple things i would like to see, how many chins/xp per hour at various levels, like by the 10's would be very nice and helpful. Other than that seems good.

Sorry for not replying, been busy lately.

Thanks :)

Yea, I'm working on xp per hour figures at the moment. Hopefully I should get them sorted soon.

I'll try to include more about red chinchompas, I'm trying to focus more on getting to 63 hunter, but I see your point. Thanks.



Thank you :D

Did you post the swamp lizard method?



I can't seem to find it, if you didn't you should. I mean it's great profit after all, it used to be better but still for such a low level requirement it's nice. Let me know.

I'm not sure how much of a necro-post this is, but... I just wanted to post here to say that catching ruby harvests is WELL worth it. The provide fast exp, and they also earn a lot of money(600 gp each - the jar cost). Does anyone know why they're worth so much mroe than all of the rest? Also, I think this is a good guide, and more people should use it.

Really good guide mate, I had no idea where to start hunter. The guide itself was really informative (other than past 63) but it is labeled as a beginners guide after all :thumbup:. The guide was also presented really well, 9/10!

I don't usually post around the forums, but i'll say a few things. First of all, great guide. I am just in the process of getting all my noob stats (40-) to 60 and Hunter was on of them. Your guide was very clear and to the point. The only thing I suggest is exp/hour but other then that, awesome.

Yeah this guide is definately worth giving credit about. I finally just begun hunting and I've been following this guide to a T. I would strongly suggest it to anyone who is attempting the beginning stages of hunting. Great job man even if you don't check it anymore. 9/10

Looks good; I skimmed it until I got to the red chinchompa part, since I have significantly less interest in the previous levels. When telling how to get to the hunting grounds, you put the spirit graahk teleport as an option; it's the spirit larupia, the graahk teleports you just outside of Shilo Village.
If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Wow, I completely forgot I made this, seems like such a long time ago :shock:



Thank you for the great comments, I didn't realize people were still using this guide. I may revamp soon as I can see that it has gained some interest recently.

I would also like to add something.



Maybe you could include some things to do while hunting. You could possibly bring things to alch or, my personal favorite, bring a hatchet and tinderbox and chop trees and burn. There are many different types of trees near several of the hunting locations. There are eucalyptus trees near tropical tropical wagtails, yews near ferrets, etc. Its always good to get some extra xp and since you're not doing anything while waiting, you might as well do something productive.



EDIT: Only during the lower levels when it takes a while to catch anything.





Thank you so much! Thanks to this guide I *am about* to get 63 hunter in like 4 days. I was so confused about hunter at first, but now I am able to help others in game. So thank you once again.
