Training
Marks
Marks are the first thing you need to get in Summoning. At level 1, the options are Attack, Strength, Defence, or Woodcutting.
Once the first Mark for a given Familiar has been found, the player will not find any more marks until they create at least one Summoning Tablet for that familiar.
The average time to acquire marks varies with both the tier of the summoning familiar and whether the player has that familiar equipped. The average times shown below are excluding any downtime such as waiting for ore to respawn in Mining, time spent stunned in Thieving, and time waiting for Monsters to respawn in Combat.
Tier | Familiar Equipped? | ||
---|---|---|---|
No | Yes (Combat) | Yes (Non-Combat) | |
1 | 20 | 11.43 | 10 |
2 | 45 | 25.71 | 22.50 |
3 | 80 | 45.71 | 40 |
Mark Chance is based on fastest possible interval for artisan skills, so having all upgrades will increase your chances - the interval for these skills are based on the following:
Skill | Seconds per Action |
---|---|
Firemaking | 60% of the log's base burn interval |
Cooking | 85% of the recipe's base cooking interval |
Smithing | 1.7 |
Fletching | 1.3 |
Crafting | 1.65 |
Runecrafting | 1.7 |
Herblore | 1.7 |
Summoning | 4.85 |
For tips on how to maximise the chance of discovering marks, see Maximising Mark Discovery Chance.
Tablets
Once you have your first mark you can start creating tablets in the familiars tab of the Summoning page.
Each tablet will have multiple recipes to create, so make sure you check them all for a recipe that suits you. Each recipe consumes shards, which can be purchased from the in game Shop.
Using tablets on the skill you acquired the mark from grants Summoning XP, and much more XP than creating tablets so using tablets is the quicker method of gaining Summoning levels. The XP/second gained increases with the Summoning level required for that familiar, and uses the following formula:
[math]\displaystyle{ \text{Base XP Gained per Tablet Use} = \frac{\text{Action Time (seconds)} \times \text{Summoning Level Required} \times 10}{\text{Summoning Level Required} + 10} }[/math]
As is the case with Marks, certain skills used a fixed value for the action time when determining the amount of XP gained per tablet.
If using a synergy, simply apply this formula once for each tablet used - in most cases, this will be 2 tablets used for one familiar, and 1 for the other.
Synergies
Having multiple familiars of at least level 2 or higher will start to unlock Synergies. Synergies grant additional bonuses over those given by using the familiars by themselves, as well as more XP per action.
For the best XP rates, it is suggested to unlock these synergies as soon as you can by leveling up marks. Higher tier (2 and 3) familiars need higher mark levels for their synergies to unlock than tier 1 familiars, but again these award more XP.
