Macaw pouches and Beacon Lighting


SportsGuy

Recommended Posts

Are they worth the hassle? Is it a one-time payment that I can make to each keeper (similar to the necessary one-time payments to get a couple of them to watch at all) or is it something that must be given each time you make a run and only when the beacon is lit?

 

 

 

I can't seem to find any definitive notes on them...

On a different note, does lighting the beacons get you experience equivalent or in proportion to the logs you use? Is the bonus static or does it change depending on whether you have used yews or magics. If it's static, then it would seem to pay to use cheaper, more common logs to train in the beacons by lighting five easy ones, letting them burn out, then lighting again...right?

 

 

 

(I still would like help with that Macaw pouch thing...I did manage to make a run of 10 with yews in the beacons, not having to restock or give extras to keepers at all, but it's something I'm curious about)

Macaws are unnecessary.

 

I don't think they're worth it. (I also did a 10 run with Yews in getting Ring of Fire and Flame Gloves)

 

Just stick with you method and forget the Macaws. ::'

 

 

 

As for the xp with different logs, I'm not sure. I'll look it up.

I think all logs give the same experience, but new question along those lines...do the bonuses "stack"?

 

 

 

For example: for the first one you get 608.4 (plus the experience for lighting whichever beacon you light, say Edgeville at 86.7 experience)

 

 

 

So after lighting one, you have 695.1 experience.

 

 

 

You light a second beacon (say the one North of the Grand Exchange for 194.3 experience)...what do you now have after lighting the beacons? Do you get a full additional 1622.4 experience for having two lit at the same time to make 2511.8 experience (in my example) or would it only be 1903.4 experience (because you already got the 608.4 added)?

 

 

 

I hope I'm making myself understood and not confusing everyone...

 

 

 

EDIT: I did a short test of exactly this example and it appears that not only does it stack, but using the ring of fire and flame gloves stacks with it....holy cow...
