The lumberjack outfit is an experience-boosting set dropped in pieces by Undead Lumberjacks in the Temple Trekking minigame. Lumberjack clothing, when worn, gives extra Woodcutting experience for cutting logs. This includes experience gained from chopping ivy, obtaining lumber from a Woodcutting skill plot, participating in the Evil Tree Distraction and Diversion, chopping vines around overgrown idols, hacking thatch spars from any of the three densities of jungle, and repairing the village fences during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. This does not include experience for finishing a sawmill job or the minor experience from failing to cut a thatch spar. Level 44 Woodcutting is required to wear lumberjack clothing. The pieces of the lumberjack outfit are as follows:

Experience boost[edit | edit source]

Item XP boost
Lumberjack hat.png Lumberjack hat 1%
Lumberjack top.png Lumberjack top 1%
Lumberjack legs.png Lumberjack legs 1%
Lumberjack boots.png Lumberjack boots 1%
Sub-total 4%
Set bonus 1%
Full set 5%

A full lumberjack set can be stored in the armour case in the Costume Room of a player-owned house.

The 5% experience boost does stack with bonus experience.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Lumberjack clothing is obtained during Temple Trekking. One of the events players may encounter during Temple Trekking is an area where there is a broken bridge. This event is where the clothing can be obtained. In this event, undead lumberjacks may come out of the water (note, sometimes no lumberjacks appear and trees must instead be used to repair the bridge). They drop planks, which can be used to repair the bridge, but they can also occasionally drop pieces of the lumberjack set. One piece can be obtained per event.[1]

After the 17 August 2011 revamp, the undead lumberjacks will drop the pieces in order, starting with the boots, then the hat, legs, and top. Missing pieces will be dropped before you get duplicates of the set. The pieces also became far more common drops after this update. All of the lumberjack items can be obtained on any of the routes. The pieces are dropped in a cycle and additional sets can be obtained once you have completed one.

The fastest way to obtain the lumberjack set is to guide somebody who has the ability to tell what lies ahead. This gives 3 opportunities to find the broken bridge event at each intersection. Rolayne Twickit has an advantage of being able to see ahead at only level 20, whereas the other NPCs only gain this ability after their third level tier.

In order to obtain the lumberjack clothing in the shortest amount of time you should complete the first event of a trek before screening the events for a bridge. The odds of finding a bridge event are greatly increased for the second event of a trek compared to finding one in the first event. After completing the first event, search all three paths for a bridge event. If you do not have a bridge event ahead simply lobby or change worlds. This will end your trek and save your progress. Once you switch worlds or log in, simply talk to your companion again to resume your trek. This will allow you to constantly be looking for bridge events whilst finding them more commonly than searching for them as the first event in a trek. If done correctly, you should expect to obtain the full set within about two hours.

There is a 1/2 chance of a bridge event being a zombie bridge event, the other option requiring chopping trees. In a zombie bridge event, there is a 1/10 chance you will get your next piece of lumberjack outfit in the event. You cannot receive more than one gear piece within a single event. [1]

Alternatively, you can take any person through Route One (the easiest route). This enables the player to skip past most combat events.

All of the pieces are now far more common drops. In addition, all of the lumberjack items can be obtained on any of the routes.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The description for the clothes reads, "You'll certainly be alright wearing these", referring to The Lumberjack Song in the British comedy sketch television show Monty Python's Flying Circus. This is one of many references to Monty Python found in RuneScape.
  • On the first day of release, there was a glitch where players were not able to receive the boots as a drop. It was much easier to get the other clothing pieces before this was fixed.
  • In the past, lumberjack clothing failed to apply its experience boost when chopping ivy. This has been fixed. Now it incorporates the extra experience directly into the total experience earned by chopping.
  • The outfit received, as with all the other experience-boosting sets existing at that point, an increase to the boost it provided, from 2.5% to 5%. This update occurred on 26 September 2012, but went official on 28 September alongside the 4 new experience-boosting sets.
