Smart Scaping: Crwys (Farming & Woodcutting)


Players can find the Crwys clan just east of the Tower of Voices.



One: Four Magic trees.

Two: Choking Ivy and farming shop.

Three: Bush and herb patch.

Four: Two Yew trees and a bank as well as Memoriam Crystal 08.

Five: Elder tree patch.

Six: A Spirit tree.

Seven: Crate containing Memoriam Crystal 02.

Voice of Seren

When the Voice of Seren is active in the Crwy clan players will receive the following buffs, as well as the city wide buffs.

  • Replaces all Bird’s Nest drops with Crystal Geodes (affected by Tree-Shaking Scrimshaw and Strung Rabbit’s Foot, does NOT require 94 Woodcutting).
  • Chance of attracting a Guthixian Butterfly while checking health of crops.
  • Chance of crops skipping growth stages.


Adding Elf City to your daily farm runs is highly profitable, as your crops have the chance of skipping growth stages. Players also have access to another Elder tree farming patch and a regular tree patch in the Trahaearn clan. To receive the of the Crwys title players are required to grow an Elder tree and successfully check its health.


In terms of Woodcutting, some of the best in the game can be found all within Elf City. Only a few clicks away players can find an almost never ending supply of Yew, Ivy, and Magic trees to chop. However, what really makes the deal is the bank chest right next to the woodcutting resources.


In addition to Woodcutting and Farming, players can unlock another Spirit Tree by talking to Glouron with 89 Farming (not boostable). Also Crwys contains 2 Memoriam Crystsals. Finally with 97 Thieving, players can pickpocket Crwys workers for seeds, Supercompost, Brawling Gloves (Firemaking/Woodcutting), as well as other universal loot from Elf workers.

Smart Scaping: Trahaearn (Mining & Smithing)


The Trahaearn clan in Elf City can be found immediately to the east upon entering the gates of the city.


One: Five Seren Stone deposits

Two: Eight Gem Rock deposits

Three: Eight Coal deposits, six Mithril deposits, two Runite deposits

Four: Eight Adamantite deposits

Five: Four anvils and one forge

Six: Crate containing Memoriam Crystal 07

Seven: One Tree patch

Low Level Mining

While the focus of Trahaearn is on high level mining, a few options exist for those in the lower levels. Coal mining is very efficient as the bank is closer than the deposit box at Living Rock Caverns and there are enough coal deposits to keep you constantly mining. Even if the player cannot access the Seren Stones they still have a chance of receiving Corrupt Ore while mining the other ores in the clan but only while the Voice of Seren is active. Another great mining option are the gem rocks. Anyone who has access to the city will have the ability to mine the gem rocks. Gem rocks can be very rewarding in more than just one way. Firstly, they provide an easy money source as players have the rare chance of mining an uncut Onyx. In addition, the rocks provide many Spirit Gems which are equipped in the pocket slot to save charms during Summoning training.

At exactly an hour of mining (with no Voice of Seren) this was my gatherings, note that my profit would have been tripled if I had received an Onyx.


In addition I received: 6 Spirit Emeralds, 14 Spirit Rubies, 17 Spirit Sapphires, 5 Spirit Diamonds, and 8 Spirit Dragonstones. I was filling my inventory around every 7 and a half minutes.

All in all, gem rocks aren’t very profitable if you don’t get lucky with an Onyx. However, they have the ability to save you countless charms while summoning.

High Level Mining

By far the biggest draw to the Trahaearn clan is the Seren Stones. Comparable to ivy for miners or Living Rock Caverns, these rocks offer effortless mining and are currently the best in the game for exp rates. While mining Seren Stones, players will receive Corrupt Ore, a stackable resource which can be ‘destroyed’ at a forge for smithing exp. Constantly receiving Corrupt Ore is not a guarantee, instead players will receive it around every two or three successful mines.

Upon mining 100 Corrupt Ore players will receive ‘of the Trahaearn’ tite.

At 99 Mining with a Dragon Pickax I’ve been getting almost exactly 200 Corrupt Ore per hour, regardless of the Voice of Seren. With the Voice of Seren active I received exactly 185k Mining exp, without the Voice of Seren players can expect to average between 100k-120k Mining exp an hour dependent on levels.

With full boost and double exp players can reach upwards of 400k Mining exp an hour! Making it by far the fastest method of training in the game.


Exactly 1,500 Corrupt Ore can be smithed per hour, granting a player 225k Smithing exp an hour or 270k Smithing exp if the Voice of Seren is active. This is a great option for Smithing if a player cannot afford other methods, however gathering the ore is slow but provides quality Smithing rates per hour.

After a player has destroyed 100 Corrupt Ore they can speak to Lady Trahaearn located at the Seren Stones to receive a Smithing lamp worth 50k exp.


Pick-pocketing from Trahaearn workers can grant players ores, smelted bars, Dwarven Stout, and Brawling Gloves (Smithing & Mining). These rewards are unique to the Trahaearn workers only.

It’s coming!

In under a month the gates leading to the Elf City will finally be opened and over a stretch of 2 updates the city will be fully released. Granted, its a massive 2 updates. With so many things to do, train, and explore it’s going to be overwhelming. But don’t worry! We’ll be here to shed some light on the update.

We’ll be writing up a massive guide to the city, best places to skill, cool locations to check out, and all the other little things you might overlook. So if you’re ever lost you know where to look!

Smart Scaping: How to Prepare for Elf City

Elf City is coming. Soon the crystal gates will be opened to Prifddinas and massive content and rewards will  lie behind it.

However, just like anything it’ll be a long road to unlocking those doors. So while we wait for the epic release planned in September, now is no better time then to start preparing yourself.

What We’ll Get

At the start of all this I had no idea what to expect for this big update. I figured that we’d get another Varrock or Falador: a fun little city to explore but after that nothing really to keep you there. However, as they began to release the player polls and gave us more information behind the update I soon saw just how wrong I was.

Not only are we getting another Varrock but also a Varrock with skilling hot spots. Places to go to train a certain skill in a way that’s the most efficient or a method which grants valuable rewards. Basically the skills that are being ‘included’ in the update are getting a mini revamp, more rewards as well as different/better ways in which to train them.

Basic Requirements

The funny thing is, I think alot of people are going to forget that this is a quest update and that this quest requires quite a few quest requirements. I think for most people they are viewing this as a new city to explore, but this city comes with a quest. I’ve not gotten myself all the way through the quest requirements for Prifddinas  but I can safely say for the most part its a fun series. I would say that the quest content isn’t that amazing, alot of boring grinds to get through locations (Underground Pass, and then navigating through the Elf woods) however the plot behind these quests is very well thought out.

So with that said, here are the quests that need to be completed before starting Plague’s End (the upcoming new quest):

Within the Light

-Mourning’s End Part II

–Mourning’s End Part I

—Big Chompy Bird Hunting

—Sheep Herder

—Roving Elves

—-Waterfall Quest


—–Underground Pass


——-Plague City

Catapult Construction

Outside of these quests you’ll also need to have at least level 75 in a slue of skills: Construction, Dungeoneering, Agility, Crafting, Herblore, Mining, Prayer, Summoning.

Additional Suggested Requirements

Outside of those quests and the required skill levels that’s all that is needed to start and complete the quest (to date). However, there is still other things you could meet to further help you out on the quest. The major thing would be skill levels. I highly recommend reaching 85 or 90 in those above required skills.

The reason being is that it’ll give you twice as much content to use once you’ve gotten inside the city. Inside the city there is different skill ‘clans’, in those clans you can train certain skills using new methods. At higher levels you unlock better rewards and xp rates.


Overall its going to be a great update. RuneScape will be getting another skilling hub with massive new content to use. I myself am looking forward to this update the most this fall. Although its still in development Jagex said they are shooting for the first batch of content to be released at the beginning of September. As they said they would be splitting the update into two halves. Anyway, enjoy the update and start grinding those Agility levels!!
