In-Depth OSRS Construction Guide
OSRS Construction Training
Construction in OSRS introduced Player Owned Houses. A home base players can continually build and show off to their friends. The houses are full of quality of life features that greatly increase the Runescape experience. Features such as unlimited jewelry teleports, portals to all the major cities, pools that regenerate your states and much more. There is so much to be desired when it comes to leveling up Construction. No matter what level you are, there is always a huge milestone just around the corner that will leave you wondering how you lived without the perks that came with it. To start constructions players will have to visit any estate agent, which can be found in most cities, and pay 1,000 Gold Pieces to purchase their first house. With this OSRS Construction Guide, we’ll give you some helpful tips and tricks to make the grind less tedious.
On the topic of milestones, here is a brief list of what you can look forward to:
Level 45 – Oak Alter
Level 47 – Mounted Amulet of Glory (Unlimited teleports to Edgeville)
Level 50 – Portal Chamber Room (Unlimited teleports to most cities)
Level 55 – Armor Stand (Repair barrows equipment)
Level 65 – Superior Garden
Level 67 – Teak Shelves 2 (Ability to +3 boost skills)
Level 70 – Revitalisation Pool (Replenish run energy)
Level 85 – Fairy ring
Level 91 – Ornate Jewelry Box (Almost every jewelry teleport in one spot)
As with most skills, questing allows players to quickly skip the lower levels and get straight to efficient training methods. Questing is always highly recommended as each quest will bring its own array of perks on top of the experience it grants.
- Daddy’s Home Miniquest (Will get players to level 8 construction)
- Tower of Life
- Getting Ahead (Requires level 26 Construction and 30 Crafting)
- The Fremennik Isles (Need decent combat skills and prayer for boss)
Training construction in OSRS is straightforward but repetitive. All players need is the fortitude to continue the grind and the bank account to support it. Beware that this skill can quickly eat away at your currency but rest assured it is well worth the investment.
Levels 1 to 33: Basic Furniture
To begin training construction, the first 33 levels will consist of a variety of furniture. In the Parlour room players will craft the following as they unlock them:
It won’t be long before reaching level 9 where a kitchen must be bought to construct Wooden Larders.
Moving onto the Workshop room at level 15, players will create Repair benches and Crafting Tables. The best one available until reaching level 31.
At level 31, the most efficient method is Carved Oak Tables in the Dining room. It shouldn’t take long before progressing onto the next method.
Level 33 to 52: Oak Larders
Oak Larders are an extremely popular option players use to level up as they are accessible at just level 33 and provide over 400k per hour experience. At experience rates like that it will not be long before we move onto the next segment of training. Keep in mind to get the best experience rates, players will have to employ better butlers as they unlock them, before finally getting a demon butler at level 50 Construction.
Level 52 to 77: Mahogany Tables
The next method doubles the experience we are receiving per hour. This is done by building Mahogany Tables which generate at peak efficiency 900k experience per hour. Using the table hotspot in the dining room with 6 mahogany planks will grant 840 experience each time one is built. A demon butler is a must for this method as you can only build 3 tables per inventory. In the time it takes to build 3 tables and remove the last one, the butler will have returned with more planks to continue building. Rinse and repeat this method all the way up to level 77.
Level 77 to 99: Mahogany Tables or Gnome Benches
For the remainder of levels, players can opt to continue building Mahogany Tables or move onto Gnome Benches. Gnome Benches can yield more experience per hour if done correctly and costs the same amount per experience point as Mahogany Tables. Gnome benches are built in the seating space found in the Superior Garden of a Player Owned House. Using 6 Mahogany planks with a saw and hammer, each bench will yield 840 experience. This method is more click intensive if using both seating spaces and grants over a 1 million experience per hour.
Alternative Methods of Training
Level 1-99: Mahogany Homes
Introduced in the game this time last year, Mahogany Homes is an ingame construction company that gives out contracts to players. These contracts will assign players to random NPCs across some of the major cities of Gielinor to build or repair items in the client’s house. This is a slower and much cheaper method of getting construction levels.
Level 50-99: Mounted Mythical Capes
Upon completion of the Grandmaster quest, Dragon Slayer II, players will have unlocked the Mythic Cape. This cape can be mounted in a Player Owned House with teak planks. Each time the cape is reused and only 3 teak planks are needed each time to grant 370 experience points. This is a really good alternative for ironman as the other planks are not as easy to obtain
Level 74-99: Oak Dungeon Doors
As a cheaper alternative to obtain level 99 in Construction, players can construct Oak Doors in their dungeon or treasure room. This method is generally 30-40% cheaper than mahogany tables and players can consistently get 300-500k experience per hour.
