Multitasking Skills-Con, Wc, Fm, Magic

Recommended Posts

Multi-part question, summary at end.




1. I'm looking to level up woodcutting from 90-99, using an Inferno Adze, and figured Mahogany logs would be best as I could use them for Construction. The plan is to cut roughly ~60k Mahogany logs, with roughly ~20k burned from the Adze's effect leaving 40k Mahogany logs usable to raise construction to 91, as well as a hefty chunk of firemaking xp for another 99. Magic experience is irrelevant as I have 99.


Now to either


1. Run 40k Mahogany logs to the sawmill to make planks, unaware of rate of plank making.


1,500 x 40,000 = 60,000,000 coins





2. Cast Plank Make 40k times


40k natures @ 135 = 5,400,000 coins

80k astrals @ 106 = 8,480,000 coins

+ 1,050 x 40,000= 42,000,000 coins


Total: 55,880,000 coins


Time invested in either method of creating planks could arguably be roughly ~22 hours casting plank make in presumably constant conditions of 1,850 planks/hr, disregarding anomalies completely.


Completing this daunting task seems like a huge investment in time which I question would better be spent making money to invest in other skills to later fund unnecessary levels such as Construction.


2. If it is a feasible task, would Ape Atoll using deposit boxes or Jungle Cleanup minigame be a better choice for mahogany? If so, what are the rough xp/hr doing so?


3. Is the opportunity cost greater than the reward in training in this specific method? If so, would simply cutting ivy/arctic pine save more time for better money makers to simply buy the supplies for construction?





DIY Construction via mahogany, yes or no?

I'm unsure of the rates of cutting the logs, but if its less than 1.5k an hour I can't imagine it being viable. Try it for a few hours, see what sorts of logs and experience you gain. Remember you can probably make in excess of 1m gp/hr and gain 90-100k woodcutting exp/hr with sawmill training.

Better to train woodcutting at teaks and sell the logs + make more cash to buy planks, so my answer is no. I'd say oak dungeon doors, maybe teak wardrobes or mahogany tables depending on your income.

Don't forget about special logs that give you a free inventory of planks.
