Eleidon's Guide to Chopping Wood.

Post by Eleidon on Wed Jan 02, 2013 8:46 pm

NOTE: Wood was currently 160 gold each when I created this guide.

In this guide, we will cover 5 different types of wood cutting:

-Normal Woodcutting

-Woodcutting w/ Normal Gloves

-Woodcutting w/ Grand Woodcutting Ring

-Woodcutting w/ Grand Woodcutting Ring + Normal Gloves

And last but not least,

-Woodcutting w/ chopping gloves

Here is some quick math: With chopping gloves, I chop about 850 wood an hour if I play close attention for the entire time.

There are 3600 seconds in an hour. 3600 minus 850 is 2750 seconds where I am not cutting wood. Take 2750 divided by 850 and you get about 3.235. That is the amount of time between each tree cut. This includes running between trees, killing an annoying crawler or boar, and jumping flags. This value may slightly vary as with methods that are more time consuming to cut each individual tree you will be spending less time jumping between trees, but just bear with me. That is not necessary a bad thing though. With methods that take longer to chop a tree, you will waste less time in your hour hopping between circles. This means that with all methods faster than the chopping gloves, your income will be slightly higher than I state below.

Also, I had no gear equipped while doing this for maximum speed. I am the legion specialization and have no extra speed bonuses, including rings. But if you are ninja, with no gear equipped and a land speed ring, your income could be a tad higher.

And now for what you actually came for.

Normal woodcutting. Using the number from the formula above, it will take about 23.235 seconds per wood chopped. This is about 154 wood per hour, which equals 24640 gold per hour.

Woodcutting with normal gloves. 14 seconds per chop. Add 3.235. 17.235 seconds a chop. That is 208 wood an hour, or 33280 gold. Subtract 2080 for the glove expenses, 31200 gold per hour.

Woodcutting with a grand chopping ring. 13.235 seconds per chop. 272 wood an hour, 43,520 gold per hour.

Woodcutting with grand chop ring and gloves. 7 seconds a chop plus 3.235 equals 10.235 seconds per chop. 351 wood an hour. That is a whooping 56160 gold an hour! Subtract 3500 for the glove funds (you'll go through 3.5 gloves and you have 52660 gold per hour.

And now for chopping gloves. I did the math in the first part of this post so I'll make it quick. 850 wood an hour. That's 136000 gold. Chopping gloves are 10000-11000 per, so let's say 10500.
That is 8.5 chopping gloves, or 89250 gold. Subtract 89250 from 136000 and you have 46,750 gold an hour.


Enjoy chopping wood if you enjoy it. It's easy money and decent profit, Over 50k an hour is great in my opinion. Hook up one of your mentees with some gloves and a chop ring or yourself and you can make some pretty good money- without the need of gear. Great for making some cash on the side while respeccing.

That is all, thanks for reading.

Yay, math! Very nice. What else can we throw math at to determine efficient grinding?

I like that the choice for how to chop is so balanced. Use gloves and ring and sell plat, or use chop gloves; it depends more on my own preference than the market.

Thanks for the positive replies everyone! Sometime I will take out the small inaccuracies and create a formula that you can use to find out how much gold you make from cutting wood per hour no matter the price of wood. I will get that sorted out soon :).

Very nice analysis.

And to further put things into perspective, if we estimate cost of food at 300gold per, and note that 365 food costs $2.99 (or cheaper)……

-Normal Woodcutting
earns equivalent of $0.67/hour

-Woodcutting w/ Normal Gloves
earns equivalent of $0.85/hour

-Woodcutting w/ Grand Woodcutting Ring
earns equivalent of $1.19/hour

-Woodcutting w/ Grand Woodcutting Ring + Normal Gloves
earns equivalent of $1.44/hour

-Woodcutting w/ chopping gloves
earns equivalent of $1.28/hour

:D :D :D

You can buy chopping gloves for 10k, which makes it essentially equivalent to chopping ring, but the price of a chopping ring has been excluded.

Yes I did exclude the price of the ring. It is a one time price though, so it does not really change the income. It pays itself back in an hour, then its profit.
