Simple guide here for getting 99 Hunting.
- For every 20 levels, you can lay 1 extra trap. So 0-20 = 1 Trap, 20-40 = 2 traps, 40-60 = 3 traps, 60-80 = 4 traps, 80-99 = 5 traps.
- Bird Snares have 3 stages. Waiting, Failed, and Successful. During Waiting the arm will be at the top of the trap. For both Failed and Successful you will get a notification in your chat box. If Failed, the arm will be at the bottom of the snare with no bird in it and will need to be reset. If Successful, there will be a bird hanging in the snare and the snare will need to be reset.
- Box Traps have 3 stages. Waiting, Failed, and Successful. During waiting the box is spread out. For both Failed and Successful you will get a notification in your chat box. If Failed, the box will close but will not be shaking and will need to be reset. If Successful, the box will be shaking and will need to be reset.
- Trap placement should be where it can be approached from all 4 angles. Not sure if it makes a huge difference.
To Start, enter your TP Interface, select the Skilling tab and select the Hunter option.
Once there, Trade with Aleck. You will need 3 Bird Snare's and 5 Box Traps
From Here run South-West until you find the Red Birds (not to be confused with the orange/copper colored birds). Lay a Bird Snare out. These Birds give 2720 xp. Stay here until level 20.
Then head East from the Red Birds or South East from the Hunter hut to the Green Birds. Lay out 2 Snares until level 40 and then put your 3rd snare out. These birds give 7600 xp. Stay here until level 55.
From the Hunter hut head directly West until you get to the Chinchompa's. Put out 3 of your Box Traps in the area until level 60, then lay out your 4th. These give 15840 xp. Stay here until level 65.
From the Chinchompa's, run directly North, From the Hunter hut, run North-West until you reach the red or carnivorous Chinchompa's. Lay out your 4 traps. These give 21200 xp. Stay here until level 75.
Finally the Black Chinchompa's are in the wilderness. Take the Vet'ion teleport, and while carefully avoiding Vet'ion, run directly west until you find the Green wooded area with the Black Chinchompa's. Lay out your 4 traps, and at level 80 lay out your 5th trap. These give 26800 xp. Stay here until 99.
Note: You can catch imps at the Puro Puro Teleport but the xp is significantly lower and there is a small number of each imp with a decent respawn time on them.
