The great thing about Old School RuneScape is that there is just so much to do in the game. It feels like there is endless content for you to check out, with a vast range of timescales and difficulties to take into account when doing them. Whilst you have daunting adventures that mostly revolve around slaying demons and hunting treasure that cost thousands of OSRS gold in the deepest darkest dungeons, there are also more menial tasks for you to do if you just want to have a more relaxing experience for a little bit. After all, who doesn’t like a time out every now and again?
If you are out and about with OSRS Mobile, then there are a few tasks that you can check out if you are looking for a more relaxing experience. Perhaps you are on vacation, and want your character to have a bit less of a stressful time. Whatever the reason might be, here are some activities that you can do when playing OSRS Mobile.
Barbarian Fishing OSRS
One task I have found particularly laid back is Barbarian Fishing. This is a special method of fishing in Old School RS, which requires you to be at level 48 Fishing, 15 Agility, and 35 Strength.
You can start fishing by heading to Otto Godblessed RS3 around Baxtorian Falls. You will start off using a Barbarian Rod, and you’ll need a knife too to gut the fish that you catch. It’s a fairly relaxing task to do, and can help you gain Strength and Agility experience whilst you do so. There are Leaping Trout, Salmon and Sturgeon for you to catch, which will then allow you to start fishing bare-handed.
When you are using the Barbarian Rod, make sure to use fishing bait or feathers. By using them to catch a whole inventory of fish, you can then drag them to empty slots on your action bar. You can then drop them using OSRS keyblinds, which can help you gain up to 60,000 Fishing XP every hour once you have reached level 70 Fishing.
Another way to take your mind off the more tasking activities is Mining. This gathering skill can help you gain items such as gems, ores and other resources. Some of the items that you mine can then be used for levelling up in Smithing, Construction, and Crafting. You can find Mining sites and mines across the world map, and there are mining shops for you to visit too.
In order to mine, you are going to need a pickaxe, and you will need to be at the relevant Mining level to use it. Once you have done so, you can have it on your Tool Belt, in your inventory, or wield it with your main hand. Then simply head over to a rock and left-click to start Mining, which you can eventually use for leveling up or even sell certain finds for profit.
Meanwhile, you can also take it easy with Fletching. This artisan skill is what you will be using to make bows and arrows, which can be beneficial if you are training your Ranged skill. What’s more, you can use it to get material that has high alchemy prices attached to it, so it can help you with your Magic skill too.
If you do dedicate some time to Fletching, then you will be able to train the skill without having to worry about losing any coin or OSRS gold. You will need a variety of items in order to use Fletching, which ranges from knives, chisels, logs and more. So if you fancy making a new crossbow, some darts, or a bow here and there, then you should definitely look into Fletching. It is a pretty laid back task to do as well, if you are looking into something less taxing than dungeon crawling.
These are all tasks that you should check out in OSRS Mobile that are much more laid back than others. You can find other actions to perform that could occupy your time too, though the three listed here are beneficial and relaxing compared to some of the others that could have made the cut.
