OSRS mobile will allow you to train your skills on-the-go, and has special interfaces built and specially reworked for mobile. You're going to want to take advantage of that: whether you're on the train or sofa!
With that said, you're going to have issues performing some of the same things you do on PC, hence the need for this guide. For instance, tick manipulation, with methods that involve 3-tick or 2-ticks can be difficult to pull off due to mistapping rather than having a precise mouse. The same goes with prayer flicking prior to getting a lot of experience.
Combat Training - Melee/Range
As long as you've unlocked the Nightmare Zone, you can train your combat stats easily. If you aren't quite at the Nightmare Zone level, head to Sand Crabs on Hosidius House's beach. Once you've found a spot with 3 or 4 crabs, you essentially only have to pay attention around every ten minutes, when you run away to reset the crab's and make them aggressive towards you, so the method is fully AFK - combined with the fact they are level 15 and have 60 hitpoints, whilst having low attack/defence.
Once you have Nightmare Zone, you can train with whatever monsters you like on customized mode. Hard mode rewards more points and the monsters only have more HP.
With a rock cake, overloads and absorptions (not prayer), you only have to check the game every 5 minutes, and rock cake down every now and then.
Tip:With that said, overloads can be slightly annoying as if you miss the overload dose, you're straight up to 51+ HP and your absorption points can easily be wasted and you can die easily. Hence, Super Combat potions are highly recommended. Their effects last far longer and there's no worry if you don't re-pot, though it is recommended around every 8 minutes. While Super Combat Potions are far more expensive, you will actually make your money back if you buy herb packs everyday and open them. The only downside to this method is there's a limit to how many herb packs you can buy per day and you will only recover your money from the Super Combats in the long-term.
With Super Combats, training attack/defense/strength becomes one of the best skills to train in OSRS mobile.
With any NPC and a negative magic bonus by wearing items such as full metal (e.g. Rune) armor, your spells will fail to hit the NPC and you can autocast any spell you like. One of the best ways to splash is through a Kraken slayer task.
Splashing is far more effective than training at NMZ and far more AFK. You will continue to splash for 20 minutes, and after that, you will be logged out for inactivity. Hence, clicking anywhere (such as changing tabs) allows you to stay logged in. Each time you click the 20 minute timer restarts. This is especially helpful if you're unable to pay attention and keep checking back to see if the tree's finished cutting, such as if you're watching TV. Plus you can do this anytime you don't normally play OSRS, as clicking once every 20 minutes is not really playing!
One of the best things to do on OSRS mobile is to train your farming. With this skill, all you're doing is essentially following an easy, casual routine, but are rewarded heavily with in terms of experience/gold. There is no risk of dying to any monsters, or you having to constantly check back on things.
If you're short on cash, a herb run can easily net you 150k in profit whilst giving some respectable experience. Use ultracompost for best profits. Do fruit/tree runs if you're looking for experience.
Tip: make a tab for farming with the necessary teleports dependent on your run. The search function is slower on mobile with a virtual keyboard.
Birdhouse Runs (Hunter)
One run takes around 2-5 minutes, and you can easily profit 80k+. These can be done every 50 minutes, and gives you a lot of hunter experience! You will need to complete Bone Voyage and have a Digsite Pendant to do this effectively.
The hunter experience is very useful as it allows you to skip a lot of the mundane methods involved in leveling hunter.
Thieving can be a very lucrative moneymaker. The same method for Ardy knights applies, you trap a knight, he remains in the same spot and you change NPC attack options to a right click. With this method, all you have to do is keep tapping the same spot. Whilst you will get coin pouches, these take a while to accumulate, you have an "open all" option as well. They are a deterrent to auto-clickers, however will not affect your exp rates at all!
Whilst you can also train the fletching skill through any method you like on mobile with relative ease with the mobile specific features (Such as withdraw all), you can make 2M xp per hour crafting darts. However, you will lose GP through this method, but it's one of the highest EXP methods on the game.
Simply keep your feathers and dart tips as far away from each other as possible on a row (to prevent misclicks), get in a rhythm, and you can easily level up your fletching!
You can also train many other skills with the tap-to-drop mechanic, such as woodcutting and mining. The withdraw all feature also makes training crafting, runecrafting and smithing easy using pretty much any basic method.
Fishing is a nice skill to train on OSRS mobile. Bare in mind, 3-tick fishing simply will be better and easier on PC. Despite that, Barbarian Fishing keeps roughly the same spots, so you should be fine.
We hope you enjoyed reading our guide for the best skills to train in OSRS mobile. Have fun playing Old School RuneScape on mobile, and remember, most methods do work rather well!
