This article is a strategy guide for Jack of trades aura.
Information on mechanics, setups, and tactics is on this page.

A quick, cheap, and easy way to complete the required skills of a Jack of Trades aura is to use a daily routine after activating the aura. There are three main suggested ways for collecting experience in up to 20 skills—the Taverley & Burthorpe routine, the Varrock routine, and the Prifddinas routine listed below.

Recommended items

Archaeology, Construction, Divination, Dungeoneering, Invention, Magic, Runecrafting, and Slayer are not used in this routine.
