Herblore/Smithing - Lv 50-80 - GP to spend

Recommended Posts

Hey Tip.It,

 

I am currently training to Lv 80+ in all stats. Whilst training Agility I have hit a bit of a wall so feel like a change.

 

I am now wanting to train Herblore and Smithing to Lv 80.

 

Both are currently Lv 50 -

 

A) What is the fastest training method in both skills (what will I make?) also at what point will I swap to X-Y-Z training method? 

 

B) Whilst I do have the GP available for both of these skills, anybody have an approximate guides to cost between Lv 50 to 80 in both above mentioned skills? I would be interested to know before I undertake this journey and I'd imagine others would like to know as well.

 

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards,

For Herblore, super potions are fastest.  RuneScape Wiki has a helpful Herblore training guide if you want the breakdown for specific levels, and includes the cost based on G.E. prices.  If you want to buy Agility, you can use Silverhawk feathers (if you have the boots).  You can check how much mileage you would get out of feathers or how many feathers and how much gp you would need using our calculator here.

 

I'm sorry, was reading too fast the first time.  To train Smithing you can try several things - superheat gold as you mine in LRC, smith regular items, or do Artisan's workshop, which is slow but very afkable.  If you use the lowest grade (most cost effective) there, to get the 2M or so xp you need, you will only need to spend 4M, but you can spend pretty much as much as you desire for a little more speed.  It depends on how much strictly afk time vs money you have, I guess :P.

Thanks heaps for your reply Arceus,

 

For those interested - Runescape Wiki has been my source of information, very helpful.

 

From when I posted this I decided to train Ranged, went from 72 to 80 at Waterfiends and collected almost 1k crims charms.

 

Have gone from 50 to 72 Herblore with a very rough cost of 10-12 mill - I have now banked and training from 72 to 80 - It cost around 65 mill to bank the items but once I sell items I assume rough cost 72 to 80 will be around 15-17 mill once finished product is sold, FYI 52 to 72 was Super Energy Potions and 72 to 80 making Super Ranged potions.

 

I have not found effective fast exp for Smithing yet so may postpone this skill.

 

- 80 Herblore will not take long, will most likely move back to Agility to attempt 74 to 80 OR train Magic (Maybe at Waterfiends?) and next time a double EXP weekend comes up have charms ready to go for 68 to 80 on double EXP if that comes around anytime soon.

Quick question,

 

In regards to BXP weekend how does it work these days? Does it still start with x2 BXP and go down gradual or?

Trying to decide on to gear BXP weekend towards prayer or not - I will start with Summoning but once Charms run out need a decent backup plan but wonder how BXP works these days.

 

Thanks in advance,

It is a solid 2x multiplier for the entire weekend. Don't do prayer though, unless you plan on just straight burying them as the gilded altars will not give you a bonus. I'd suggest you train herblore.

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

How's prayer with Cremation + double xp?  Is it then 500% of normal for burying (and 400% of normal xp into FM)?

Okay excellent, 2x exp for the entire weekend shall be fun. The last time I participated in a double xp event a couple years ago now it was a 2.7x multipler that quickly drained over the course of game time.

 

I now fully understand the reason to not train Prayer so that will not be touched over the weekend.

I will investigate herblore further!

 

Is there any reason (somewhat like Prayer) I have read people say not to train Summoning over double xp weekends? I understand why not to with Prayer but not yet for Summoning.

 

Cheers,

As far as I know Summoning is just fine.  In the past it only offered a 10% boost instead of double, so that may be why.

Summoning is perfectly fine to train. In fact, it would be in your best interest to train it as it saves you time collecting charms. In the first few bxpws, summoning didn't get the full multiplier, but that is not the case anymore.

The first one did get full multiplier, however it wasn't until the previous one that it finally was allowed to train Summoning again on BXPW with full multiplier.

Thanks for the information everyone, 

 

Faststrike - Little slow exp for me, much prefer buyables to spend GP and get them done quicker (to a certain extent)

 

Any quicker methods for Smithing (now lv 59 so between 60 and 80) besides making highest level platebodies?

 

Cheers.

There's clan citadel smithing as well if you have access to it, but it depends on your other clanmates too.  Other than that I'm not too sure there are better options.  You can combine it with mining gold in LRC and Family Crest gloves maybe?  Not extremely fast, but it combines it with xp in another skill.
