Golden Bamboo stalks can be found while exploring Uncharted Isles within The Arc. Chopping the golden bamboo stalks requires at least level 96 Woodcutting harvesting golden bamboo on success, awarding 655.5 Woodcutting experience.
A golden bamboo plant will yield 100 golden bamboos before depleting, leaving a bamboo stump in its place. A filterable message will also notify the player upon depletion of the golden bamboo plant: "The bamboo plant has been exhausted for today".
At level 99 Woodcutting, the expected experience rate for chopping golden bamboo is equivalent to approximately 130,000 Woodcutting experience and 1,000 chimes an hour if the golden bamboo is bundled and sold. This is assuming that it takes about 30 minutes to cut one golden bamboo plant. It should be noted that a single golden bamboo plant can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to be depleted which may affect experience rates.
Using the following items and buffs will grant upwards of 300k Woodcutting experience per hour at level 99 Woodcutting:
If boosts are used to harvest additional golden bamboos the player will not able to obtain more than a total of 100 golden bamboo from each plant. Instead, golden bamboo will be obtained from the plant quicker, and increasing experience rates if experience is gained. However, if an effect activates on the very last harvest of the golden bamboo plant, the player will gain the additional golden bamboo.
