99 Woodcutting Guide
Why should i skill woodcutting?
Woodcutting is one of the Semi-AFK, Basic Skills. So theres not much to explain. You still have to go through it if you want the Max Cape some day. The good thing is you can use the logs to train fletching or firemaking. Basically you do is, Chop.. Chop.. and Chop..
Starting up at home you go eastbound, where the NPC shops are, which provide all kind of stuff which you need ingame. There you search for the "Skilling Shop" (5th NPC) In the Shop you can buy the hatchet from bronze to rune. I prefer you to buy all of them at once so you dont have to run there again.
These are the lvl requirements for the hatchets:
Iron lvl 1
Mithril lvl 21
Adamant lvl 31
Rune lvl 41
Time to chop!
Regulary you starting off at the north of home. There you can find all the sorts of relevant tree types
1: regular treee (lvl 1)
2: oak tree (lvl 15)
3: willow tree (lvl 30)
4: maple tree (lvl 45)
5: yew tree (lvl 60)
6: magic tree (lvl 75)
Maximize your efficiency during woodcutting (for example best XP and helpful tools)
There are a few way how you can boost the efficiency of woodcutting.
You have the chance to find skilling pets while chopping trees.
You can find the Beaver while chopping trees everywhere. This pet will slightly boost your woodcutting XP while following you.
This fancy Tree Spirit is only obtainable whilest chopping trees on the donator zone or above. Therefore it'll grant you a even higher XP boost than the beaver.
