xp per hour

Someone recently added "At level 99 Hunter, catching Crimson skillchompas using 5 boxtraps and no bait yields around 210,000 experience per hour."

I call that bullshit. For 210k xp you need to catch 466.66. With 99 hunter + Arctic bear I was not able to get ANYWHERE near that. You'd be lucky to get to the mid 300s. -- 20:24, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

My statistics:
- witchdoctor set + yaktwee stick (+5% xp) + master tracker aura (+7% success) + arctic bear (on empty world)
= 420 crimson skillchompas/hour = 420 * 450 * 1,05 = 198,450 xp TypekGLS (talk) 12:31, June 24, 2014 (UTC)TypekGLS
While <200k sounds a lot better; it should be noted that the current rates are going to be higher than what they will normally be as in the first few days/weeks jagex puts more chimps in there to cope with the higher number of hunters. That amount will be reduced once things cool down and then it can be measured. -- 18:52, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
I managed to catch 888 of these during a 2 hour aura (enlightment) I started out at lvl 94 with a arctic bear. I ended leveling near the end. During these 2 hours I used a total of 4 arctic bears, went on a 2 minute break one and went banking once. Also I wasn't hunting optimally the whole time regarding picking up boxes and placing them at the same time. I'd say (more than) 450/h should be doable if you know how to hunt and put your back into it. Mid 300s/h is very much on the low side.
ps. I don't know how to make the paragraph look like a reply if someone would do that for me please? 12:42, June 27, 2014 (UTC)
888 in two hours is 199,800xp/hr which more or less matches TypekGLS' observations and as I said is far more reasonable (<200k) than what was said. -- 07:03, June 29, 2014 (UTC)
I have managed to get more than 500 catches (225k+ exp/hr) in one hour for several hours in a row, at 97-98 hunter, with an arctic bear and the basic tracker aura. You guys must be doing em wrong or something. Here  is a picture of where I place my traps, I highly suggest you try again using these spots. Also, desert camo instead of witchdoctor, which only helps at jadinkos. YewKaril (talk) 13:10, July 24, 2014 (UTC)


How many chins do you use up an hour when skilling with them? 11:51, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

From Quick find code: 15-16-286-65409100

TL;DR +56% faster xp rate at rocktails with any color, negligible boost for any other fish except maybe Cavefish. [Assuming average 120 rocktail an hour, no other boosts, ~1120 consumed]

+36.4% faster xp for crystal trees assuming crimson. [Assuming average 240 successes in an hour, no other boosts, ~1400 consumed]

+16.3% faster xp mining gold ore at the LRCS assuming crimson. [Assuming average 1k gold in an hour, no other boosts, ~2177 consumed]

Skillchompas are affected by bonus xp, including outfits + clan avatar.

No bait needed while fishing.

Azure are the easiest to get for some reason.

I wouldn't bother using them for anything not listed, and I definitely wouldn't use them for mining, but for what they're good for, they're pretty good for. Decent Hunter XP too, if not the greatest.

I recommend you read the section right above this.
