Ecto-rates are extremely off[edit source]

"The player uses 9 pots, 9 buckets, and 9 bones each trip.", the trip down to the ectopool is long,people aren't just going to take 9 buckets to fill up. If you put bones and slimes in a separate run followed by a "praying run" the exp rate/hour might increase by a little or a large amount.--Moneypony 00:18, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

I was going to say the same thing. =P Might test it out while going for 80 pray. Empty box.pngrriceCrabclaw and hook.png 21:32, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
The rate for ashes at the ectofuntus is also incredibly off, since they assume time spent grinding when infact you don't need to grind them. Boolderdash 18:44, February 24, 2011 (UTC)
Plus you can use a summon to hold ashes unlike bonemeal when you do get the exp, reducing traveling time. Empty box.pngrriceCrabclaw and hook.png 06:50, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

XP rate with pack yak[edit source]

Just for anyone who cares, I get about 320k xp/hr using a pack yak on gilded altar with dragon bones, which is almost 50% higher than the current listed xp/hr. Summoning-icon.png To3cutt3r Talk HS Log Summoning-icon.png 22:12, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Bank bones rate[edit source]

As Isthatok noted on the f2p page, the rate of simply burying the bones (left click) is a lot faster than listed. According to these pages and a comment Water made on, it seems like there was an update many months ago that sped up the bury rate significantly. The calculators should thus read 4800 bones per hour instead of the 900 currently listed. Ablm578Talk 04:23, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Burial rates[edit source]

I did some quick tests, and I got the following xp rates:

  • Burying at bank: 3600 bones/hour
  • Ectofunctus with ashes: 530/hour
  • w31 house with no familiar: 1080/hour
  • w31 house with terrorbird: 1120/hour
  • w31 house with tortoise: 1200/hour
  • w31 house with yak: 1280/hour

If you test these and get something different, post it here.

I was able to do this with Impious Ashes with no BoB:

With Ectophial Teleport Ectofunctus with ashes: 533/Hour Exp: 8528/Hour Time: 00:01:43 per run

Without Ectophial Teleport Ectofunctus with ashes: 392/Hour Exp: 6272/Hour Time: 00:02:11 per run

Value of time[edit source]

Can we have a portion where it shows which bones you should use based on how much you value your time? Like the firemaking section where it shows if you value your time at x coins per hour use these logs? It would really help in deciding which bones to use. 14:53, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

Is it possible to add cremation to this calculator?[edit source]

I want to be able to compare cremation to alters. Emily1799 (talk) 03:00, January 20, 2015 (UTC)
