Beginners in old school RuneScape can use woodcutting as a successful path to establishing themselves in the game. This old school RuneScape guide will focus on getting through the low woodcutting levels must efficiently and profitably.
In eoc RuneScape, some of these methods still hold, but oftentimes eoc RuneScape players will have better options.
RuneScape players start out in Lumbridge. There is a bank on the third floor of the castle for depositing unnecessary items. Retain the bronze hatchet, and withdraw a tinderbox for firemaking. Alternatively, take the knife off the ground floor in the corner of the kitchen.
Head out and chop normal trees, getting rid of the logs by banking, burning, selling to the store, or making into arrow shafts.
At 15 woodcutting, switch to oaks. There is an oak tree by the bank in Draynor and a couple oak trees west of the west Varrock bank. Although the west varrock trees are a few steps farther, the Draynor tree occasionally is in range of a jail guard which attacks players who are low leveled.
When the RuneScape player gains 200 coins, head to Lumbridge and buy a steel ax from Bob's axes just south of the Lumbridge Castle gate. Buy a few spares if able, in case an ent breaks the ax. Broken ax can be used with Bob and he will repair at least up to steel for free.
At level 30, either continue on oaks or switch to willows. Make this decision based on the price of each log and how fast you want to gain experience. At level 45, oak, willow, and maple can all be chopped by the bank in Seer's village.
To get to Seer's village, either sail a charter to Port Khazard or Catherby, or traverse White Wolf mountain. If walking across the mountain, bring lots of food and no valuables. Then do Fishing Contest quest to unlock the path under the mountain.
Ring of Dueling can be purchased for 1k-2k coins and used to teleport to Castle Wars. From there, go south across the bridge and west to the teak tree. This requires level 35 woodcutting. Fill the inventory and teleport back to Castle Wars to bank. Then sell the teak logs to RuneScape players training construction.
Regular and oak logs were selling 10-15 ea before construction was opened. Prices should spike after the release of construction. Willows were getting 15 each and maples were going for 75-100 ea. Those were prices the week after release and are subject to change. Teak wasn't being chopped, but should be swarmed once construction is enabled in old school RuneScape.
