Time management has always been important in determining how efficiently you can perform a series of actions in RuneScape. If you have your eyes set on a goal, then you'll likely want to know how long it will take to reach it. The idea behind this sticky is to serve as a medium behind that concept, and will also aid you in acquiring the information that you'll need to assess an accurate answer.


How long will it take to me attain level X?


If you're using this sticky to figure out how long it'll take to level a specific skill, first use the Zybez Skill Calculator to determine how many actions it is that you'll be performing. For example, I would need to bury 5,303 bones to train Prayer through levels thirty to forty according to the calculator, so I would be performing 5,303 actions in total. You can skip this step, however, if you're just trying to figure out how long skill-related actions will take to complete.


Once you know the number of actions you'll be performing, locate the skill and method of training in the sections below. Then simply divide the total number of actions by the maximum number of actions performed each hour (listed under 'End Result' section of table). So, based off of the above example, 5,303 (total actions) divided by 4,032 (# performed each hour) equals 1.31, or close to an hour and a half of work.


*Note: If dealing with an answer that has a decimal, it's best to round it up to the nearest hour.


Getting to the good stuff


The tables within each section below are comprised of seven components and two main sections. If you're simply using this sticky to calculate how long something will take, all you'll need to pay attention to is the 'End Result' tab. The six others, Area; Status; Explanation; Special Notes; Credits; and the featured map images to the left, are all there for informational purposes and should be self-explanatory. You can consult the sample table here
, however, if you're having any difficulty understanding them.


Without further adieu...

Unfortunately, as time progresses, Jagex releases new updates that make the popular methods listed seem inferior to the newer ones. Not only that, but the speed that this all happens is quick and acute. So for those reasons, we need your help! Below we ask for your help on keeping this resource up to date and accurate. Be sure your post contains one of the following:


  • You can submit a new method to train a skill. It can be a revision to an older method, a brand new method to a skill, or suggest a skill that isn't listed and give a method with it.
  • You can go ahead and time a skill that someone submitted and post that information.
  • You can submit both a method and a time to a skill of your choosing.
Miscellaneous Information:


  • Before posting, make sure that you take a look above making sure that your method is not listed.
  • When timing a skill, make sure that it is as accurate as possible. Remember, it may be added into the sticky so you want it to be as perfect as you can get it to be. You can do this by timing it five to eight times to ensure consistency.
  • When listing your method, go into as much detail as possible so that others don't make a mistake when timing it.
  • If you do time a skill and it's used in the sticky, you will receive credit for timing it.

First off, I've got to say making this thread was a very nice idea. :rolleyes:

I have a much faster method of training summoning by the way.  I don't  for sure how many pouches you can make with this method, but a friend told me that you can around 2500 per hour.  For this method, you'll need a level of 57 summoning, and a Spirit Kyatt and dueling rings.  Simply summon the Spirit Kyatt and then right click on it, and then click on the "Interact" option, and you'll have an option to teleport (which requires no scrolls by the way).  It will teleport you just south of the monkfish colony, but more importantly, it teleports you about 10 steps south of a trapdoor which contains a summoning obelisk.  Once you've gone down the trapdoor and created your pouches, teleport to castle wars with your dueling ring and repeat.

Hopefully that was detailed enough. :unsure:

Using the stopwatch feature on my iPod, I timed myself throwing knives and shooting arrows on a shortbow (both on rapid).  I threw 10 knives in 12.02 seconds and shot 10 arrows in 17.07 seconds, so that means you can throw one knife in approximately 1.2 seconds (12 divided by 10 = 1.2, excluding the rounded off 0.02 seconds) and shoot 1 arrow in approximately 1.7 seconds. Therefore, you can throw 3000 knives in an hour and shoot about 2117 per hour.  I know that this information is accurate because I did several trials and all of them were very close to being the same.

So, in summary:

1 throwing knife can be thrown in 1.2 seconds.
50 knives thrown per minute.
3000 knives thrown per hour. (Considering there are no interruptions)

1 arrow can be shot in 1.7 seconds.
About 35 arrows can be shot per minute.
About 2117 arrows can be shot per hour.  (Considering there are no interruptions)

Hope this gets used  :-P

EDIT: Typo
EDIT2: Added info on shortbows.

I'll have to think about this one. Most of the times up there are ones that don't have too many changing variables. This one can be affected by how crowded the ranging spot it, if the monsters are spawning quick enough, if you're picking up the arrows, ect. I could just generalize it but I'll think it over first.

Edit: I'm not going to put that in. If there's demand for it then I'll probably add it in then.

Hunting gray chinchompas (best method in my opinion) you get one chinchompa every 12 seconds, 5 chinchompas every minute, 50 chinchompas every 10 minutes, and 300 chinchompas every hour. Since each chinchompa gives 196 exp, that's 58,800 exp an hour.

Make sure your method is detailed enough: the experience received may vary from your hunting level so it wouldn't be a bad idea mentioning which level you timed this at. Even better would be to do the timing another time at a higher level, and see what kind of difference there was.  :thumbsup:

I have a great new way of training magic.

This version uses combat magic, although this way will not gain you any Hit Points experiences. First of buy the runes for the spell that you are going to use and make sure you get a staff, I suggest using Mind and Chaos spells for this. After you have collected all your runes go to Lumbridge, yes that is correct Lumbridge.  Now, if you don't your way around Lumbridge after the new updates, there is the combat training room, near where the general store is. In this training room there are dummies for different combats (melee, magic and range). Since we are training magic, attack the magic dummy. You will always get the base experience for this, example: Fire Strike has 11.5 exp so you will always get that. The best part of this is that the dummy will not get destroyed, it will heal when it gets to half health. You will get logged out and there are randoms, but for an easy target that doesn't die you can't ask for anything else.

Have a look at the name of this topic; we're looking for calculations and timing! If you can manage to get us those, for example experience per minute, we can reconsider adding your technique to the post. We can't just add all methods of training a skill, especially if they have not been proven to be better than other - already mentioned - methods.  :-P

I have a great new way of training magic.

This version uses combat magic, although this way will not gain you any Hit Points experiences. First of buy the runes for the spell that you are going to use and make sure you get a staff, I suggest using Mind and Chaos spells for this. After you have collected all your runes go to Lumbridge, yes that is correct Lumbridge. Now, if you don't your way around Lumbridge after the new updates, there is the combat training room, near where the general store is. In this training room there are dummies for different combats (melee, magic and range). Since we are training magic, attack the magic dummy. You will always get the base experience for this, example: Fire Strike has 11.5 exp so you will always get that. The best part of this is that the dummy will not get destroyed, it will heal when it gets to half health. You will get logged out and there are randoms, but for an easy target that doesn't die you can't ask for anything else.

Great find but that doesn't really fit anywhere on here. The only spell that would be useful for that would be the Confuse, Weaken, and Curse spells but those times are already listed. Plus, location doesn't matter for those spells because with enough negative magic bonuses you'll hit nearly everytime. You could do it with damaging spells I suppose but that's a huge waste of money when you could just kill enemies for drops/hitpoint experience.

It was a good idea though :thumbsup:

no1's calculated how fast different melee weapons attack yet? :innocent:

That's not really necessary. Zybez already has a calculator that will tell you how much combat experience you'll get an hour. All you have to do is just figure out how many enemies you can kill on average every minute.

Unless there's a reason I'm missing...?

I think he's talking about this sort of thing. Could be wrong tho.

Yeah, I already saw that awhile ago. But what I'm wondering is why would you need to know the weapon speed? The only reason I could think of was for experience per hour but Zybez already has a calculator for that which I mentioned above.

I strung an inventory (14) of yew longbows in 25.21 seconds with Withdraw-14. I started with the mouse on the (u) bows in bank, started timer, withdrew materials, did String All, deposited, and ended with mouse on (u) bows again. I'd say 24 seconds is probably the absolute lowest possible time for stringing 14 bows. This means at an absolute insane concentration, you could get 2000 strung bows every hour.

I used this timer, so it started right when I put my hand on the mouse. (btw no I don't stack cups lol, I use it for solving rubik's cubes)

First off, I've got to say making this thread was a very nice idea. :lmao:

I have a much faster method of training summoning by the way. I don't for sure how many pouches you can make with this method, but a friend told me that you can around 2500 per hour. For this method, you'll need a level of 57 summoning, and a Spirit Kyatt and dueling rings. Simply summon the Spirit Kyatt and then right click on it, and then click on the "Interact" option, and you'll have an option to teleport (which requires no scrolls by the way). It will teleport you just south of the monkfish colony, but more importantly, it teleports you about 10 steps south of a trapdoor which contains a summoning obelisk. Once you've gone down the trapdoor and created your pouches, teleport to castle wars with your dueling ring and repeat.

Hopefully that was detailed enough. :-D

I added that, thanks :ph34r:

Using the stopwatch feature on my iPod, I timed myself throwing knives and shooting arrows on a shortbow (both on rapid). I threw 10 knives in 12.02 seconds and shot 10 arrows in 17.07 seconds, so that means you can throw one knife in approximately 1.2 seconds (12 divided by 10 = 1.2, excluding the rounded off 0.02 seconds) and shoot 1 arrow in approximately 1.7 seconds. Therefore, you can throw 3000 knives in an hour and shoot about 2117 per hour. I know that this information is accurate because I did several trials and all of them were very close to being the same.

So, in summary:

1 throwing knife can be thrown in 1.2 seconds.
50 knives thrown per minute.
3000 knives thrown per hour. (Considering there are no interruptions)

1 arrow can be shot in 1.7 seconds.
About 35 arrows can be shot per minute.
About 2117 arrows can be shot per hour. (Considering there are no interruptions)

Hope this gets used :$

EDIT: Typo
EDIT2: Added info on shortbows.

I'll have to think about this one. Most of the times up there are ones that don't have too many changing variables. This one can be affected by how crowded the ranging spot it, if the monsters are spawning quick enough, if you're picking up the arrows, ect. I could just generalize it but I'll think it over first.

Edit: I'm not going to put that in. If there's demand for it then I'll probably add it in then.

Um, I was just trying to calculate the approximate speed per 1 arrows shot or per 1 knife thrown. The part where I added how many arrows you can shoot in an hour is just an estimate.

Basically, I just posted that to say that it takes 1.7 seconds to shoot 1 arrow and 1.2 seconds to throw a knife.

I timed it again and the absolute lowest time I got was 26 seconds. When I had originally timed it, there was no withdraw-option and I never used it in a bank with a one click. Also, I think when I had originally timed it I had gotten 28 or 29 seconds. But I rounded it up because you won't do it at 28~29 seconds every single time and it works out to be a more realistic time (I rounded up a couple seconds in a lot of those times).

Anyways, what I'll do is use 28 seconds as the time. This should provide that realistic answer rather than a full out concentration answer.

I guess what I don't understand is why are the speeds important? The only thing I can see them being used for is figuring out your average experience an hour. But that's not important because Step's Stat Sniffer can do that for you. You can even use the calculators in the Zybez Monster Database.

No, that just has too many variables. You have to consider that there's no specific rate that traps fail at, the hunting spots have different positions (like trees for net traps can be found in a few different areas with different positions), and ect.

I have a better idea for summoning.  I would time it myself, but I am low on charms and currently doing slayer while I get more.  But here's my idea; instead of using the taverly obelisk, use the one in Keldagrim West. It is basically right next to the bank. : )
