Christmas came early to Runescape this year and with it came along the perfect chance of gaining completely free XP in both the Cooking and Defense skills. As of right now the hourly average of free cooking XP is in the 150-160K area which is simply epic considering it’s free. Within a single day of AFK cooking I went from level 79 to 85 without having to buy cooking ingredients. And by the way, you don’t burn (fail) anything either!
Simple and straightforward
After completing the first part of this year’s Christmas event, you will gain access to a special cooking range which allows you to cook four different types of food based on what the snow imps are requesting. (no, you don’t actually make any food this way.)
In order to get the maximum experience points possible, all you need to do is to meet the demands of the snow imps. So if, for example, a snow imp is saying you need to cook the turkey, well, that’s what you need to do. If you cook the wrong type of food, you’ll just get a few XP points which is just horrible XP waste!
Here’s a quick calculation to show you how much free XP we’re really talking about:
150-160K xp = 1 hour
750-800K xp = 5 hours
1.5M-1.6M xp = 10 hours
Not bad, right?
