It seems that nodes are super-active during the appearance of a Runesphere so that seems to be the best time for hunting/camping nodes. During the hour when the runesphere was active, I gained about 120K xp through nodes just hunting them down from platform to platform. When runesphere isn't active, it's probably best to camp Soul ess Wraiths.

This got fixed hours after the update. They (JaGex) said that the nodes were spawning at an unnatural rate and quickly changed it to the proper amount which dropped the exp/hour significantly.

And then they fixed it again today and the spawns go nuts during runesphere -- this isn't outdated info, i did this 15 minutes ago.

This appears to be more suited for the Tips board, so I'll move it there for you. :-)

The island south of it seems better for lower levels though, seeing as you can only syphon from half of those nodes at level 77 and it spawns Jumpers, blood pools and skulls regularly, plus you can travel across when those same appear on your island (cost is 1 air, 1 death and 1 blood and most of those runes are given by the nodes, + there is an air essling on the bigger island and you only need to pay once to travel). Then it's only a matter of finding a world where a runesphere is active, which is easy with friend chats around. :-D

I find Siphoning mid tier Lodes to be very effective. I get around ~100k an hour for the mid lodes (Vines, Fire Storm, Flesh) and hunting for the Yellow Wizard. I get more XP/Hour by Siphoning Vines than I do with Soul Esswraiths.

I found just 1 node at that island. :-( I did find some other good islands around the runespan though, most of them are in the southern part.

Runesphere is active at the moment and not many nodes are spawning. Especially soul ones. There are only 3 people here including me if that matters.

Yesterday I averaged 1.9k-2k points here with like 6-7 living soul nodes and others. Don't know what's affecting them :-/

Yeah, I realised a little after that post that this video is a bit premature and not correct seeing as that exact island was empty on a runesphere activated world where I was checking. I don't think any particular islands stand out to be better than others, I think it's a combination of people present on a certain floor/world and whether or not runesphere is influencing the Runespan that determine how many nodes are spawning somewhere.

For your interest, I think it would be better to siphon your second-best creature for the best results. Example: I am level 81 RuneCrafting, so I can siphon Blood and Death Esswraiths. Both provide decent xp, but I ''fail'' a lot, so I'll be getting xp flows like ''60-1-1-1-60-60''. When I siphon the Law Esshound, I have almost a 100% succes factor. Might be useful for some, especially if you are gathering rune essence.

Is the best way for runespan xp/hr! After fix! Plus its semi-afkable!

This tip is outdated. Whatever happened yesterday seems like it was a one-time thing, and hasn't been reproduced since. There's better spots to camp if you're siphoning nodes/looking for max xp/hr.
