This guide will focus on the fastest and easiest abilities to learn up to 99 in OSRS are and what makes their leveling so efficient than other abilities. If you've been wondering what the quickest and cheapest abilities to upgrade have to be Old School RuneScape, then you must read t

The skills that make up the most effective OSRS to achieve 99 are the following:


5th is the easiest skill to Max: Firemaking

If you search for which is the easiest technique to learn to get to 99, a lot of people will inform you that it is firemaking. It is a highly sought-after ability among players looking to reach level 99 as quick as possible, and is also a source of profit for players as well.


The reason it is considered to be the most simple skill begins with the light normal and Maple logs in which you can hit level 50 in just 35 minutes. We are only at the halfway point (in the sense of levels and not XP) In which case, you are able to participate in the Wintertodt. It's a minigame kind of boss, that concentrates on your skill. If you are careful about how you tackle the Wintertodt it could mean that you're playing it for 65 hours or more. For the best experience from the Wintertodt you must try and avoid Fletching to achieve the best possible earnings from XP. It's an easy method to get to 99 and you'll make a decent money in the process.



But, there's a second method of Firemaking when it comes to getting there to be 99. Some might say that it is a more feasible way to reach your goal. It revolves around the burning of Yew, Magic, Redwood and Maple logs. The reason as to why this is thought to be more effective over Winterhtodt is because it only takes between 30-35 hours players to accomplish, which depending on how you play Wintertodt you could be able to require a half of time this way. What's more, once you reached the level 90 for Firemaking, you'll notice that the lighting of Redwood logs brings in around 400K XP per hour. This is more than the amount you can receive from Wintertodt which offers only 300K XP/hour.


The next part will be a bit longer the next part, with Mahogany Tables taking 22 hours for you to reach 99. This can vary. If you're looking to shorten the duration, then you can create Gnome Benches once you reach the level of 77, which will take approximately 19 hours. The problem for this process is that it may be expensive, clocking in at 182M gold per hour. If you want to conserve some gold opt to build Dungeon Doors from level 74 after you have made Oak Larders. It will cost less than half of the amount Gnome Benches would cost, but it could take as long as 40 hours to complete.


4th Fastest 99 Skill: Cooking

You can achieve level 99 Cooking in around 22 hours by making Jugs of Wine. This will set you back about 20 million dollars, so it's a fairly low cost in comparison to a variety of other techniques you will find in this list. By the time you have reached level 68, it is likely that you will notice that you have stopped creating bad wines. Thus, it is recommended to try leveling up using Tuna or Lobsters until you get to the level of 68 before you move to Wine. When you do this you'll have invested approximately 27 hours into this technique, however it will cost even less with just 10 million gold.


3rd Place 3rd Place: Construction

Next up on the list next on the list is Construction, which is a simple method as it is you have gold to invest. In terms of the fastest way of reaching 99 goes, you will firstly need to create Crude Wooden Chairs to get you to the level of 19. Then Oak Chairs can get you to level 33, and this should take you about an hour. From here, it will take another hour to make Oak Larders to get to level 52.


2nd Most efficient OSRS 99 Skill - Prayer

Following just behind Fletching as the most efficient method is Prayer. The fastest way to get to 99 using Prayer is through the use of Dagannoth bones. This will take you up to level 70, at which you'll be able to start using superior dragon bones. If you are using a manual click method, you can hit 99 after approximately 10 hours. This will cost about 220 million gold to complete.


There is another method that involves practicing your Prayer level by using Ensouled heads. If you are choosing this method for leveling it is recommended to reach the level of 93 in Magic. This means that you'll be able use The Reanimate Dragon Heads, which you could utilize with a cannon to make it to 99 in just 32 hours. It may be much slower, but it'll costs you around 63M gold, which is far lower than the faster method.


The Easiest OSRS 99 ability - Fletching

The fastest skill to train to be 99 in OSRS will be Fletching. The reason is that that fletching darts can be an extremely efficient method of advancing your skills and that is the thing you should focus on, rather than Arrows. If you start off with bronze to Dragon darts you'll be able to make your way to 99 for the cost of 120 million gold. If you're seeking a efficient method that is cost-effective, then Mithril darts could take you to 99 for 51M of osrs Gold. It can take around 7 hours to reach 99 with this method. Or, you can concentrate on Short and Longbows however this could take as long as 80 hours.



These five skills provide methods to get to 99 significantly faster and with greater efficiency as compared to other skills in OSRS. It is important to remember however that often the fastest methods can be the most costly. However, this doesn't mean you shouldn't use these methods However, it's a great idea to prepare ahead and make sure you have enough OSRS gold to purchase all the required materials to make it all the way to 99.
