This guide is written assuming 230 kills per hour with level 99 Smithing
Chitin scraps can be used to repair the tier-90 drygore weapons. They are created by using damaged chitin on an anvil, and the amount of scraps received from each chitin scales with your Smithing level, up to 40 at level 99.
Damaged chitin are received as a 100% drop from all exiled kalphite, of which the paragon is easiest to kill en masse. They are weak to arrows but are taken down just as easily with Magic. When killing kalphites, focus on one at a time using multi-target abilities when available. The kalphite paragons do not do a great deal of damage; however, this damage adds up. It is advisable to use Soul Split to help offset this damage. Quickly pick up the damaged chitin and store them in your familiar. When both yours and your familiar's inventories are full, teleport to a location with an anvil (such as Varrock, where an anvil lies near the teleport locations just south of the west bank) and use the damaged chitin on the anvil; empty your familiar's inventory and repeat. When finished, use the Bandit Camp lodestone teleport then run south to the hive. Another alternative is to use magic note paper to note the chitin as you collect them. Due to the reduced time banking there is little impact on profit but an increase in kills, xp and charm collection.
The optimal spot for killing kalphites is in the room next to the entrance to the Kalphite King's room. Getting to there from the lodestone takes approximately 60 seconds. The kalphite paragons take around 10 seconds to kill, meaning you can get 50 kills in 10 minutes when you include some time to pick up the drops. It takes less than 20 seconds to get to an anvil; from there, it takes about 60 seconds to smith all the chitin into scraps. This results in an average of 13 minute trips for 50 kills, or about 4.6 trips an hour, giving a total of 230 kills an hour. With level 99 Smithing, this results in 9,200 chitin scraps.
If you are not 98 or 99 Smithing, you can use this table to see your expected profit per hour, again assuming 230 kills per hour:
