What are Crystal Trees?
Crystal trees are the highest level trees in runescape. A minimum level of 94 in woodcutting is required to cut them. They do not give any resources, only experience. There are 7 crystal trees. Only one crystal tree is active at one time. They stay active for 2 hours and as soon as one becomes inactive, another crystal tree at a different location goes active instead. When looked at an inactive tree, you will receive a message telling you in which direction the active tree is.
The Crystal Tree's re-spawn time is usually the same on every world (not always though). The locations are different.

Fally - Falador

Crystal Geodes


While cutting crystal trees, crystal geodes might be dropped on the ground. They stay on the ground for 30 seconds. The geodes can contain uncut gems, but they can, very rarely, also contain crystal seeds or crystal triskelion fragments.
Items to increase the chance of getting a crystal geode:
1. Tree-shaking scrimshaw: increased chance by 300% and lasts for 3 hours.
2. Superiour tree-shaking scrimshaw: increased chance by 400% and lasts for 4 hours.
3. Strung rabbit foot

Loot from 2.5K crystal geodes:
371 sapphires - 15%
479 emeralds - 19%
764 rubies - 30%
741 diamonds - 29%
132 dragonstones - 5%
5 crystal seeds - 0.2%
8 crystal triskelion fragments - 0.32% (*1 in 300)

Note: The scrimshaws also increase the chance of finding implings. These range from essence implings to kingly implings. Implings found using the scrimshaw last 5 minutes before despawning and are only visible to the wearer of the scrimshaw. Itís suggested that you bring impling jars for maximum profit.

Woodcutting Boosts


Lumberjack outfit: 5% bonus xp for the full set (takes around 6-10 hours to get)
Beaver: invisible +2 woodcutting boost
God Banner: visible +2 woodcutting boost
Perfect Juju Potion: +5% xp

Stealing creation: ~185k bxp per hour (can differ a lot depending on how fast games go)
Do not buy proto-tools, instead buy a volatile tool and revert it back untill you get a hatchet. You can then keep recharging that hatchet.

Calculation
Non-combat SC game = 11 mins.
= 5.5 games per hour = 126 points per hour
= 6.3 volatile tools per hour = 6.3 x 29,340 = 185k bonus xp per hour
(do not buy proto-tools, instead buy a volatile tool and revert it back untill you get a hatchet. then you can keep recharging that hatchet)


Boosts that do NOT work on Crystal Trees:
- Lumberjack aura
- Log-splitting scrimshaw
- Woodcutting urns

Prifddinas (Elf City Information)


In the elf city of Prifddinas, anyone able to enter the Max Guild, is granted a single crystal acorn on their first visit. The cystal acorn is also a rare drop from crystal implings.

A crystal tree starts to grow immediately when the acorn is planted in the crystal tree farm patch. This is located on the south east balcony in the Tower of Voices, and requires level 94 farming, it gives 30k xp on planting.

24 hours from planting the tree, or harvesting a blossom, a new crystal blossom will grow. The harvesting gives 15k farming xp ( this can be increased using bonus xp). The tree cannot be chopped down like the usual crystal trees outside of Prifiddinas.

The garden of the Max Guild holds a skill portal which can be attuned to take you to the live crystal tree on that world.

Call and post Format


Format for calls in the fc

World - Location

(e.g. 138 brim)

Format for posts on the forum

Current crystal trees at:

World - Location
World - Location

Next location change at approx 00:00 game time


It's advised to use the 24-hour format and at least mention the game time. Additional time zones may be added if you wish to do so.



Ranking System


Ranks will be given to those who are active and helpful in the FC.
This includes:
1. Announcing the locations of active crystal trees regularly.
2. Maintaining the friendly chat atmosphere so that we can be happy woodcutters. :)


FriendChat Rules

1. Follow all Jagex rules.
2. Help locate trees and announce locations in chat when required.
3. Be polite at all times. Respect the other players using the chat channel.
4. Don't spam the chat. Off-topic conversations are allowed but should be paused when locations are being announced.
5. Let ranks handle any problems that arise. Do not cause arguments or flame.
6. Do not advertise or recruit for other clan chats.

If you break any fc rules or Jagex rules you will be kicked or banned from the friend chat. We do not kick for no reason and wish to maintain a fun and relaxing chat atmosphere for fellow woodcutters to enjoy chopping trees all day. The ranks that have the power to kick have been chosen carefully and are trusted.
