The construction skill

Postby Mike » Tue Aug 06, 2013 1:35 pm

Below, you will find a guide on:
  • How to get started
  • Where to obtain materials
  • What benefits the construction skill offers.

Getting started
To buy a house, simply talk to the Estate Agent in Varrock. He can be found at the North-West side of the Varrock square, next to the Player-Owned House portal.
Depending on how much you pay the agent, you can build up to a certain amount of rooms. Prices are as follows:
  • 3 rooms: 1 million coins
  • 12 rooms: 20 million coins
  • 25 rooms: 100 million coins (donator and premium only)
  • 150 rooms: 2 billion coins (premium only)

Furthermore, the estage agent also offers the option to hire a servant. A servant costs 200 million coins and will follow you around in your house. He provides free access to your bank and can tell you how many rooms you currently have in your house. If you have guests in your house, they too have access to their bank through the servant.

The estate agent sells maps, landscapes, portraits and alchemical charts which you can use to decorate your quest hall or study.

He also sells brawling gloves, which cost 500 million coins and for which you need level 99 construction to buy and wear. If you wear these gloves while training the skill associated with the gloves, you will receive +30% XP and PkHonor points.

Obtaining construction materials
-> Normal planks: 150 xp
Oak planks: 250 xp
Teak planks: 350 xp
Mahogany planks: 500 xp
To make planks, first cut logs of the appropriate type at the Woodcutting area (Spellbook -> Skilling teleport) or buy them from other players.
Then you can choose between using the plank make spell (which costs 2 astral runes, 15 earth runes and 10 nature runes) or by going to the sawmill operator who will saw all your logs into planks for 60,000 coins per plank. You can find the sawmill operator in the building just West of the bank in Seer's village (Spellbook -> Cities teleport).

-> Bolt of cloth: 5 xp, can be bought at the Crafting store for 1000 coins

-> Soft clay: 5 xp, can be mined at the crafting guild (Spellbook -> Skilling teleport)
Note that you can only mine hard clay. To make soft clay from hard clay, use the clay on a water source such as a sink.

-> Limestone block: 10 xp, can be mined at the crafting guild
This requires a mining level of 10 and a crafting level of 12. You also need a hammer and a chisel in your inventory for this.

-> Marble block: 70 xp, can be mined at the crafting guild.
This requires a mining and crafting level of 99. You also need a hammer and a chisel in your inventory for this.

-> Gold leaf: 1,000 xp
To get gold leaves, bring gold bars to the stonemason in the crafting guild, who will turn all your gold bars into gold leaves for 150,000 coins per leaf

-> Magic stone: 5,000 xp
This item can only be obtained from elite clue caskets. They can however be traded freely between players.

-> Bagged plants: 1 xp - 800xp
These are sold in the gardening supplies shop, in the building just west of the bank in Seer's village (Spellbook -> Cities teleport). Prices vary from 200 coins to 200,000 coins

-> Steel bar: 2 xp
Nails: 0 xp

Any other items you use in construction not listed here will not yield any construction experience. If you use coins to buy something (for example a monster in your dungeon), the amount of XP you get is 1/400th of the amount of coins you spend. This is capped at 5,000 XP.

Dungeon treasure room
-> A guardian and a chest can be placed here. In order to open the chest, you first need to defeat the guardian, which will drop the key to the chest.
The reward inside the chest depends on the levels of both the chest and the guardian. Note that only the house owner can obtain a key as a drop from the guardian, if a guest kills the guardian and the owner is absent, no key will be dropped.

At construction level 99, a magic chest can be made with Nomad as guardian. Only if you have both of these, you can obtain a unique item: the Morph Ring.
This ring is untradeable. When worn, it will transform you into a monster with appropriate attack and defence bonuses. You can not use this ring in pVp activities or in the wilderness.
To transform into a stronger monster, the Morph Ring needs to be charged. This can be done with slayer points (1 charge per 20 slayer points), or by having the ring in your inventory while killing other players in the wilderness (1 charge per kill). Note that you cannot attack players while transformed, only NPC's.
You can freely choose which monster to transform into, as long as you have the required amount of charges for that specific monster.
