    Forums Event

    An ongoing event starts now. Forums is a great way to build on an active community here on Zamorak. With the investment in ads as well as the double donations and t-shirt through december, player growth is steadily rising daily. In order to continue to grow as a server and climb the ranks on rsps toplists. We will be hosting an event to incentivize the use of forums and too continue to build our community. For every post on forums, you will be rewarded with 10m gp. A post is a suggestion, a discussion topic, a loot video, those sorts of things. A post does not mean a comment you leave. For every guide made on the forums, you will be rewarded with 25m gp. These guides can include skilling guides, bossing guides, mini game guides and others. I know the skilling directory currently has a guide for every skill but I would like to fill that directory with newer guides made by the players currently playing so don't hesitate to make a guide even if you see it already in the directory. If you feel as though you earned either the 10m or 25m gp reward, please get in contact with myself (Astro) in game. If you cannot get in touch with me you can always message me on discord or any staff member. Good luck to everyone, I'm looking forward to see what everyone creates and puts out.

You can donate to the well by typing ::well, it lasts for 2 hours before needing to be refilled. Rock Golem You have a 1/1000 chance to receive the Rock Golem pet when mining. Once obtained, if you use it whilst mining it will provide a 50% boost in experience. Miner Magnus Magnus is the man mining at the skill teleport. He will sell you pickaxe's from bronze - rune. Magnus can also tell you where and when the shooting star will fall which is very useful for the best exp training in mining. Locations Mining Teleport: Living Rock Caverns: You can get here by clicking on dungeons teleports and then living rock caverns. Mine the living rock remains scattered around the cave. Wilderness Volcano You can get here by clicking on wilderness teleports and then bounty hunter. Run west and enter the cave entrance, continue west to the rune ore rocks. Training There are 2 ways to train mining. You can either mine ores or you can mine the crashed star when it lands. There is a guide that goes over all locations that I will link here. Crashed stars is the best way to train mining however you will need ores for achievements. Pickaxes Bronze and Iron Pickaxe - Level 1 Steel Pickaxe - Level 6 mining, Level 5 Attack to wield Mithril Pickaxe - Level 21 Mining, Level 20 Attack to wield Adamant Pickaxe - Level 31 Mining, Level 30 Attack to wield Rune Pickaxe - Level 41 Mining, Level 40 Attack to wield Dragon Pickaxe and Dragon Pickaxe (or) - Level 61 Mining, Level 60 Attack to wield Ores at Mining Teleport Copper and Tin Ore Level 1 Realism - 175xp Ironman- 875xp Knight - 8,750xp Iron Ore Level 15 Realism - 350xp Ironman - 1,750xp Knight - 17,500xp Silver Ore Level 20 Realism - 400xp Ironman - 2,000xp Knight - 20,000xp Coal Ore Level 30 Realism - 500xp Ironman - 2,500xp Knight - 25,000xp Gold Ore Level 40 Realism - 600xp Ironman - 3,000xp Knight - 30,000xp Mithril Ore Level 55 Realism - 800xp Ironman - 4,000xp Knight - 40,000xp Adamantite Ore Level 70 Realism - 950xp Ironman - 4,750xp Knight - 47,500xp Ores at Donator Island Adamantite Ore Level 70 Realism - 997xp Ironman - 4,985xp Knight - 49,850xp Runite Ore Level 85 Realism - 1,312xp Ironman - 6,560xp Knight - 65,600xp Ores at Super Donator Island Coal Ore Level 30 Realism - 600xp Ironman - 3,000xp Knight - 30,000xp Gold Ore Level 40 Realism - 720xp Ironman - 3,600xp Knight - 36,000xp Mithril Ore Level 55 Realism - 960xp Ironman - 4,800xp Knight - 48,000xp Adamantite Ore Level 70 Realism - 1,140xp Ironman - 5,700xp Knight - 57,000xp Runite Ore Level 85 Realism - 1,500xp Ironman - 7,500xp Knight - 75,000xp Additional Mining Pure Essence Level 1 Realism - 50xp Ironman - 250xp Knight - 2,500xp Quick 1-99 Rundown (ore method) 1-15 : copper / tin ore 15-30 : iron ore 30-55 : coal ore 55-70 : mithril ore 70-80 : adamantite ore 80-99 : concentrated coal and gold at Living Rock Caverns I recommend this path even if you are a donator however if you wish to mine addy and rune rocks for the achievements you can do that as well. Concentrated coal and gold is by far the fastest and most afk method to train mining through ores. Thank you for reading my guide. I hope this helps out anyone looking to train mining!

    99 Hunter Guide - Astro

    Bonus Exp Well of experience You can obtain 2x experience rates by filling the Well of Experience. It costs 7.5m to fill it but multiple people can contribute to cover this cost. You can donate to the well by typing ::well, it lasts for 2 hours before needing to be refilled. Baby Chinchompa Pet You have a 1/1000 chance of receiving a baby chinchompa whilst training hunter. Once obtained, if you use it whilst hunting it will provide a 50% boost in experience. Hunting Master Aleck is the hunter skill master who will sell you everything you need to achieve 99 hunter. He is at all 3 teleport locations and sells bird snares, box traps, butterfly nets, impling jars, and the Larupia outfit. This outfit is not needed to hunt efficiently but can be worn if desired. Locations There are 3 main locations in which you can train hunter however you will likely only use 2 of these 3. They are as follows: Puro Puro Karamja / Kharazi Jungle Ape Atoll Training There are 3 separate ways to train hunter in Zamorak. Bird Snaring, Impling Hunting, and Box trapping. Bird Snaring is only an early level method to training hunter while box trapping is only mid to late level training as you can't even place a box trap down until 60 hunter. I will now go method by method with exp rates for all catches and then at the end do a quick 1-99 roll up of the fastest methods to train. DISCLAIMER There is currently an issue with running and hunting, in order to avoid graphically glitching your character, turn your run energy off when hunting on Zamorak. If you experience an issue or forget to turn your run off, just relog to fix it. Bird Snaring Crimson Swifts Level 1 required to catch Realism - 340xp Ironman - 1,700xp Knight - 17,000xp Golden Warbler Level 5 required to catch Realism - 470xp Ironman - 2,350xp Knight - 23,500xp Copper Longtail Level 9 required to catch Realism - 610xp Ironman - 3,050 Knight - 30,500xp Cerulean Twitch Level 11 required to catch Realism - 650xp Ironman - 3,250xp Knight - 32,500xp Tropical Wagtail Level 19 required to catch Realism - 950xp Ironman - 4,750xp Knight - 47,500xp Impling Hunting Baby Impling Level 1 required to catch Realism - 250xp Ironman - 1,250xp Knight - 12,500xp Young Impling Level 17 required to catch Realism - 650xp Ironman - 3,250xp Knight - 32,500xp Gourmet Impling Level 34 required to catch Realism - 1,130xp Ironman - 5,650xp Knight - 56,500xp Earth Impling Level 34 required to catch Realism - 1,770xp Ironman - 8,850xp Knight - 88,500xp Essence Impling Level 40 required to catch Realism - 2,250xp Ironman - 11,250xp Knight - 112,500xp Eclectic Impling Level 50 required to catch Realism - 2,890xp Ironman - 14,450xp Knight - 144,500xp Nature Impling Level 58 required to catch Realism - 3,530xp Ironman - 17,650xp Knight - 176,500xp Magpie Impling Level 65 required to catch Realism - 4,090xp Ironman - 20,450xp Knight - 204,500xp Ninja Impling Level 74 required to catch Realism - 4,810xp Ironman - 24,050xp Knight - 240,500xp Grenwall Impling Level 77 required to catch Realism - 5,330xp* Ironman - 26,650xp* Knight - 266,500xp* Dragon Impling Level 83 required to catch Realism - 5,530xp Ironman - 27,650xp Knight - 276,500xp Kingly Impling Level 91 required to catch Realism - 6,215xp* Ironman - 31,075xp* Knight - 310,750xp* Additional Impling information Grenwall and Kingly implings can be caught at ::sdi and ::edi however there is really no reason to catch them at edi as the sdi skilling bonus is higher currently at 20%. Exp rates are as follows: ::sdi Grenwall Impling Level 77 required to catch Realism - 5,863xp Ironman - 29,315xp Knight - 293,150xp Kingly Impling Level 91 required to catch Realism - 6,787xp Ironman - 33,935xp Knight - 339,350xp ::edi Grenwall Impling Level 77 required to catch Realism - 5,596xp Ironman - 27,980xp Knight - 279,800xp Kingly Impling Level 91 required to catch Realism - 6,478xp Ironman - 32,390xp Knight - 323,900xp Box Trapping Although grey chinchompas only require level 53 hunter to catch you cannot place a box trap down until you reach level 60 hunter. Grey Chincompas Level 53 (60) required to catch Realism - 1,990xp Ironman - 9,950xp Knight - 99,500xp Red Chincompas Level 63 required to catch Realism - 2,750xp Ironman - 13,750xp Knight - 137,500xp Quick 1-99 Rundown Continuously do Puro Puro hunting the 3 best implings you can catch until level 60/63. Once you reach level 60 or 63 it is time to start box trapping. Red chins is the way to go from 63-99 as you can place 4 traps at a time and the catch rate is very frequent. You almost always have a box ready by the time the rest are placed down. Alternatively at level 91 hunter you can catch kingly and grenwall implings if you are a super donator or higher. Their is an achievement to catch kingly implings so you can do that while training to 99 as well. Thank you for reading my guide. I hope this helps out anyone looking to train hunter! Feedback is always appreciate in the comments below. Happy Hunting!

    99 Smithing Guide - Astro

    Welcome to my 99 smithing guide. This guide will go over xp per bar as well as how much xp you receive from smithing the bars. I will also put in some notes on how to achieve the higher tier bars at a more consistent rate than making them yourself. All xp rates shown are without double xp activated. All smithing rates are based off using 1 bar at a time ie. knives, arrowheads. If you choose to make platebodies, multiply the xp by 5 to get the accurate amount. Level 1 - 15 : Bronze bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 62xp Ironman - 310xp Knight - 3,100xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 125xp Ironman - 625xp Knight - 6,250xp Level 15 - 30 : Iron Bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 125xp Ironman - 625xp Knight - 6,250xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 250xp Ironman - 1,250xp Knight - 12,500xp Level 30 - 50 : Steel Bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 175xp Ironman - 875xp Knight - 8,750xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 375xp Ironman - 1,875xp Knight - 18,750xp Level 50 - 70 : Mithril Bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 300xp Ironman - 1,500xp Knight - 15,000xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 500xp Ironman - 2,500xp Knight - 25,000xp Level 70 - 85 : Adamantite Bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 375xp Ironman - 1,875xp Knight - 18,750xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 625xp Ironman - 3,125xp Knight - 31,250xp Level 85 - 99 : Runite Bars Smelting the bar: Realism - 500xp Ironman - 2,500xp Knight - 25,000xp Smithing the bar: Realism - 750xp Ironman - 3,750xp Knight - 37,500xp I recommend making platebodies for every bar type until you can make the next bar platebody, ie. mithril platebodies require level 68 smithing to make, adamant platebodies require 88 smithing. Even though you can start smithing adamant at level 70 its more time efficient to train by smithing platebodies. Additional Smithing information I skipped over gold bars earlier because they aren't the best way to train smithing, although they have higher smelt xp rates than steel bars, you cannot smith them into anything. Super Donator Island gives a 20% xp increase when skilling there. This can be used for both the smelting and smithing portion of the skill. Level 40 : Gold Bars Gold Bar Smelting: Realism - 225xp Ironman - 1,125xp Knight - 11,250xp Thank you everyone, I hope this guide helps you achieve your smithing dreams. Feedback is appreciated in the comments. Good luck!

    99 Crafting Guide - Astro

    Hello everyone, welcome to my 1-99 crafting guide. In this guide I will be going over cutting gems as well as dhide crafting. This guide will show the fastest and easiest ways to train. I will be giving the xp rates of knights and ironman however I will only explain how many per level for realism as they take the most to level. Please Enjoy the Guide Gem Cutting The easiest way to get gems is to buy them from the master crafter inside the crafting guild. For ironman or anyone who would like to just save money, Glacors are excellent droppers of noted gems and are relatively easy to kill. You can also steal from the gem stall in Ardougne to receive a fair amount of gems as well as train thieving, however 75 thieving is required in order to steal from this stall. Opal - Level 1 Required Knight - 7,500xp Ironman - 750xp Realism - 150xp It will take 13 opals without double xp to reach level 13 Crafting. Jade - Level 13 Required Knight - 10,000xp Ironman - 1,000xp Realism - 200xp It will take 5 jades without double xp to reach level 16 Crafting. Red Topaz - Level 16 Required Knight - 12,500xp Ironman - 1,250xp Realism - 250xp It will take 7 red topaz without double xp to reach level 20 Crafting. Sapphire - Level 20 Required Knight - 25,000xp Ironman - 2,500xp Realism - 500xp It will take 11 sapphires without double xp to reach level 27 Crafting. Emerald - Level 27 Required Knight - 33,750xp Ironman - 3,375xp Realism - 675xp It will take 16 emeralds without double xp to reach level 34 Crafting. Ruby - Level 34 Required Knight - 42,500xp Ironman - 4,250xp Realism - 850xp It will take 36 rubies without double xp to reach level 43 Crafting. Diamond - Level 43 Required Knight - 53,750xp Ironman - 5,375xp Realism - 1,075xp It will take 109 diamonds without double xp to reach level 55 Crafting. Dragonstone - Level 55 Required Knight - 68,750xp Ironman - 6,875xp Realism - 1,375xp It will take 9,359 dragonstones to reach level 99 Crafting. The only other gem you can cut after dragonstones are onyx's however this is not a feasible method to train your crafting. Dragonhide Crafting To begin Dragonhide crafting you will need to collect a decent amount of untanned dragonhides from either killing the colored dragons or killing Vorkath who drops noted hides. You will need a needle and some thread to begin stitching your armor pieces together. All Dragonhide require 20gp per hide to be tanned. The Master Crafter at the crafting guide can tan the hides for you by right click him and selecting which hide you want tanned. The most efficient use of your time when dragonhide crafting requires you to make the bodies and not the vambraces or chaps. With this in mind, I will only be showing the xp rates for the bodies. Green Dragonhide - Level 63 Required Knight - 93,000xp Ironman - 9,300xp Realism - 1,860xp It will take 240 Green D'hide Bodies without double xp to reach level 71 Crafting. This is a total of 720 Green Dragonleather. Blue Dragonhide - Level 71 Required Knight - 105,000xp Ironman - 10,500xp Realism - 2,100xp It will take 315 Blue D'hide Bodies without double xp to reach level 77 Crafting. This is a total of 945 Blue Dragonleather. Red Dragonhide - Level 77 Required Knight - 117,000xp Ironman - 11,700xp Realism - 2,340xp It will take 631 Red D'hide Bodies without double xp to reach level 84 Crafting. This is a total of 1893 Red Dragonleather. Black Dragonhide - Level 84 Required Knight - 129,000xp Ironman - 12,900xp Realism - 2,580xp It will take 3,909 Black D'hide Bodies without double xp to reach level 99 Crafting. This is a total of 11,727 Black Dragonleather. Thank you, I hope this guide helps you. Feedback is appreciated in the comments ❤️

    500M Cape uses and ideas

    I really like a lot of these ideas. I'm very thankful you took the time to type this post out, I think there are a lot of ideas here that could and would make sense to be implemented in order to give players an incentive to grind towards those 500m capes. These would likely need to be realism/ironman only perk though due to the fact that 500m xp on knights is 10m realism xp which isn't even level 99. The balancing would not be fair nor would it make sense. That being said, I think we can take this can run with it and put something together.

    GRIM

    When @Clowncar asked me to join the team, I instantly said yes, not knowing exactly what I was getting myself into. No shops at all, not even the skilling shops like crafting and mining to buy better pickaxes. I spent half an hour killing goblins today just to get an air talisman so we could start runecrafting. And the excitement levels I felt for all of this were unlike anything I’ve experienced on this server. Even when I get pets or those big ticket item drops on my main, I don’t experience the amount of excitement like I did when I got a fucking air talisman from a goblin. This has been honestly so much fun and anyone on the fence about it ABSOLUTELY recommend finding a group of friends to play this with. It’s been a blast so far, the challenge is great, it’s fun to kill things you otherwise thought you wouldn’t have to. This was an amazing idea by car and @Rob and I’m so glad that we decided to go through with this. I repeat, anyone on the fence absolutely needs to give this a try with some friends and play through. It’s the little things that make this mode so enjoyable.

I look forward to the future and hopefully many more new players

    Range Weapon Tier List

    It's a list based on progression taking into account the difficulty to obtain the weapon as well as the stats and abilities of the weapon. That is why dbone xbow is so low due to its difficult to obtain whilst not being too much of a difference between chaotic crossbow. There are many other options to go for that are easier to obtain than to grind blood reaver for a 1/1k drop that shares its rarity with 5 other items. I appreciate your feedback though and I understand your viewpoint on it.
