Favour Points

As your chopping away at the patches of forest, you'll gain Favour Points. You can also gain them by repairing fences and killing the different monsters around the village. But of course, there are some monsters that will try and prevent you from doing this.


Monsters & Random Events

Monsters randomly appear while you are cutting jungles, attacking you. You gain favour by killing them, and you can get special items.

Jungle Spiders

Info: Jungle Spiders are not very dangerous. They rarely poison and are easy to kill.

Drops: Spider Carcass

Spider Carcasses can be used as food, if you have skewered it. To do so, use your Machete on any Spar's and you will get Skewer Sticks. Use one on the raw carcass, and cook it. You can also use arrow shafts, but you wont get them back after eating the spider, unlike Skewer Sticks.

Bush Snakes

Info: Bush Snakes are also weak, but they poison more often than the Jungle Spider
Level: 35
Drops: Snake Hide

Snake Hides can be used to make the new Snake Ranged Armor. More information about this can be found later in the guide.



Info: Tribesmen are stronger than Bush Snakes, and poison more often. Not really worth killing as they don't drop anything good.
Level: 33
Drops: Bones

Tribal Masks can be worn and come in three differen colors, including:

  • Brown tribal mask Yellow/Brown
  • Green tribal mask Green
  • White tribal mask White

Each color corresponds to their weakness. If you use the correct item, you can heavily damage them instead of just hitting 1 or two!

  • Yellow/Brown Broodoo's are weak against Relicym's Balm Potion.
  • Green Broodoo's are weak against Antipoison Potions.
  • White Broodoo's are weak against food. You can bring pineapples, slice them and use them on them.

Also, you can get Broodoo Shields by using 2 Tanned Snake hides and 8 Nails near an anvil on a mask. Corresponding to its color, the shield has 10 Charges, which can prevent certain effects, such as poison, disease or damage.

Gem Rocks

Sometimes, you will find a small gemrock in the jungles. They can be mined 3 times for 3 gems, after which you can sell to Gabooty.

It's slightly less powerful than green Dragonhide armor, and it's heavier as well. It requires at least level 30 Defence and Ranging to be worn.

You can obtain it by killing Bush Snakes and taking their hides while cutting the patches of Jungle. People buy and sell them for around 50-100 Sticks each hide. You must then tan the hides, which cost 15gp each. You need 46 hides in total to make a full set. just use a Thread and Needle to craft a piece.
