Uses[edit | edit source]

Using the Fletching skill allows players to turn maple logs into Ranged weapons. Unstrung shortbows can be made at 50 Fletching, giving 50 experience per bow. Maple stocks can be made at level 54, for 32 experience. Unstrung shieldbows can be made at level 55, for 58.3 experience. Stringing the bows with a bowstring gives the same amount of experience as making them. Adding a mithril limb to a maple stock grants 64 experience, and makes an unstrung mithril crossbow. At level 45 Fletching, maple logs can be cut into 30 arrow shafts, granting 12.5 experience per log.

Maple logs can be burned by all players using the Firemaking skill, giving 135 experience. If added to a bonfire, they give 135 experience at level 45 Firemaking and scaling up to 175 experience at level 99 (140.4 to 182 experience on a 5-person bonfire). Maple log fires stay lit for 3.5 minutes, regardless of the amount of logs added. Maple logs can be burned using Barbarian Firemaking but level 65 Firemaking is required to use this method. This gives the same Firemaking experience as burning them with a tinderbox. Maple logs can also be used to make pyre ships and pyre logs. Cheap and providing moderate experience, they are commonly used for training Firemaking, costing 20,660,640 coins from level 45 to 99, using about 96,096 logs or less on bonfires.

Maple logs can be transmuted into yew logs with the Divination skill.

Maple logs are frequently Disassembled for Simple parts, necessary for making Divine charges. Compared to Acadia logs, frequently used for the same purpose, they are cost effective while giving reasonable parts per hour.

Price history[edit | edit source]

A maple log fire.

Prior to the release of the Grand Exchange, maple logs had a street price of about 100 coins each. When the Grand Exchange was introduced, there was an influx of hundreds of thousands of maple logs obtained from Miscellania that were all thrust into the market at once. This massive oversupply caused maple logs to drop to the low price of under 50 coins each.

With the 2 September 2009 personalised shop update, minimum price limits on many items including unstrung maple longbows were removed. Before, players would buy maples at around 36–42 coins each and fletch them into unstrung maple longbows. They would then be widely traded as junk with other players, along with other unwanted fletching products. The unstrung longbows were worth 144 coins each, but after the shop update, they fell to 64 coins each. The logs in turn suffered a fall to 28 coins. There is an underlying demand for unstrung maple longbows, as they still have some training value.

The 1st February 2011 free trade update caused the amount of bots to increase, in turn causing the efficiency of gathering logs to decrease per player. This sudden decrease of supply increased the price of maple logs to over 90 coins.

In September 2011, a Bonus XP Weekend was announced and players began selling maple logs, since demand was anticipated. This sudden oversupply caused price decrease, and other players seeing the drop, delayed buying the logs, leading to a lack of demand. As the Bonus XP Weekend would arrive in a few days, players guessed that prices would continue to drop, and they could then buy their logs for less.

With the release of Invention, maple logs rose from 24 coins to 35 coins due to them being a cheap source for simple parts and living components.

Since the release of Invention machines, they rose to 70 GP each.
