Hello everyone,

In this guide, I will not be providing any techniques for training, but rather a way to compare the efficiency of different training techniques. The following formula can be used to compare two methods of training a skill.

To compare two methods, A and B:

[(gp per xp of A) - (gp per xp of B)] / {[1 / (xp per hour of A)] - [1 / (xp per hour of B)]}

This is how much more gp per hour it will be to train using method A rather than method B. If you value your time to be greater than this gp per hour, then it is better to use method A. Otherwise, it is better to use method B.

Deriving the formula


Thanks for reading, and good luck and have fun with your training,

This is alright. Don't get me wrong, it isn't bad, but Runewiki has up to date Calculators that show this exact formula in action for every item of every skill.

I believe those calculators give gp/xp and xp/hr of items but do not compare them in terms of how much gp/hr it is costing to use one training method over another.

If it is there, I'm just not looking in the right place, so could you provide a link please :)
