What’s going on guys! My name is Theoatrix, and welcome to my updated 100% Hosidius House favour Guide.
With the recent Hosidius rework and the Forthos Dungeon release, my directions and the layout of the previous guide became outdated.
This article shows why you should get favour, how to get it the fastest, as well as some alternatives for Ironmen. Using the methods I show gets 100% favour within half an hour with a bit of focus.
A quick note – your favour in other houses no longer decreases when gaining favour in another house. So, this means that you do not need to lock in your favour anymore.
Also, the Client of Kourend Quest no longer doubles your favour, there is no way to do that.
Why get favour?
So, starting off with why you should get Hosidius House Favour…
With 15% and 25 Thieving, you can steal from the Fruit Stalls in the centre of the Hosidius Region,
as well as the Fruit Stalls inside the house on the east side of Hosidius. They give the best XP per hour until you unlock Blackjacking.
With the recent update, I received a lot of comments asking how to trap the guard dogs. Well, you should not be thieving in the central region of Hosidius. Make your way east and shut all of the doors in this house, and it is completely safe from guard dogs, and you will never get caught here.
At 35% favour, with 83 Farming as well, you can plant a Spirit Tree in the Spirit Tree patch very close to the Forthos Dungeon, and near the Herb Patch as well.
At 50%, the allotments, flower and most importantly the Herb patch in the Hosidius House are permanently protected from disease.
With 60% and 45 Farming, you can enter the Farming Guild, unlocking a great deal of farming patches as well as farming contracts and the seed vault.
At 60 Woodcutting and 75% favour, you can enter the Woodcutting Guild, which is a great place to train Woodcutting, with an invisible +3 boost from being in the Guild.
With complete favour at 100%, you unlock the Tithe Farm at 34 Farming, which provides an alternative way to train your Farming as well as a range of very useful rewards.
Also, at 100%, you can cook in the Hosidius Kitchen, located west of the Hosidius House, and the oven here gives a 5% lower burn rate, which stacks with the effects of the Cooking Gauntlets. So, ultimately, these ovens give the lowest burn rate throughout Runescape. As you can tell, there are so many rewards from getting Hosidius House favour. So, it is definitely worth your time.
Fastest to 100%
So, this is how to get it the fastest…
Firstly, the requirements, and there are actually no skill requirements to get 100%. In terms of the items you need, you will need a hammer, and 950 compost.
Compost has a 600 buy limit on the Grand Exchange, so you will need to go to a farming store across Runescape, and they sell compost packs. As a regular player, you will need to buy 950 Saltpetre.
But, as an Ironman, instead of bringing the Saltpetre, you will need to bring a spade to get it yourself.
To get started, grab your hammer, and make your way to one of the Hosidius Farms with a Purple Favour icon on it. The fastest way to one of these is using the Xeric’s Talisman teleport to Xeric’s Glade and running south.
Another way is moving your house to Kourend and teleporting there. Alternatively, you can take a boat from Port Sarim and then run south when you are off the docks.
1% - 5%: Push Plough
To get your first 5%, you need to push the plough back and forward and repair it with your hammer when it is broken. Doing this from 0% to 5% will only take you 5 – 10 minutes.
5% - 100%: Fertiliser
Once you are at 5%, you can start making fertiliser. So, you should make your way to the nearby Hosidius House bank up north.
For this part, you will need the compost and saltpetre handy.
To get saltpetre as an Ironman, you should grab a spade, and head southwest to the grey circles on the map.
You need to find the grey circle with a yellow dot on it, who will be Konoo.
Once you find him, you can start digging at that spot.
Since the bank has moved from where it used to be, Jagex kindly added a bank deposit box in the centre of the Saltpetre area.
So, after 20 minutes – 1 hour, depending on your mining level, you will have 950 Saltpetre. To get started making fertiliser, you should take one of each item out of your bank at a time to make this formation in your inventory.
This is so that you can make the fertiliser a lot quicker with a lot less mouse movement as well. You will need to click through each one to make it the fastest. When you are going to bank, do not bank your full inventory. Firstly, fill your inventory with 1 of the other ingredients. Then, deposit the fertiliser, then withdraw the other ingredient. This keeps your inventory like that, allowing you to make over 2000 fertiliser per hour. This is the fastest way to gain Hosidius House favour in the game, and to get 100%, as you probably gathered, you will need to make 950.
Once you have made all of them and you have them in your bank, make your way southeast. Here, you will find the clerk, and by talking to her, she will take all of the fertiliser out of your bank, converting it into favour.
Alternative way to 100%
Now for the alternative way to gain favour, which requires 40% Hosidius House Favour to start. This method is probably better for Ultimate Ironmen, and it also gives quite a lot more XP than doing the Saltpetre method.
The method is cooking at the Mess Hall, located northwest of the big Hosidius bank.
Here, you can cook 3 types of foo – meat pies, stews and pineapple pizzas.
Meat pies need 20 Cooking, and to make them, grab 14 flour and 14 bowls.
Fill the bowls with water, and then turn the flour into pastry dough.
Drop the bowls and grab 14 pie dishes, and make pie shells. Then, grab 14 pieces of meat by right clicking and grabbing x.
Then, cook all of the meat and then add them to the pies by putting 2 ingredients at the bottom of your inventory. Then, spam click it. Then, finally, cook the uncooked pies. You can then serve them at the tables on either side of the Mess Hall for massive amounts of Cooking XP.
Stews are made at 25 Cooking, with bowls of water, then mixing in potatoes.
Then, you need to cook 14 pieces of meat, then add them to the stews by spam clicking again.
Then, you can finally cook all of the stews and serve them.
With 65 Cooking, you can make pineapple pizzas, which are probably the fastest ones to make. Firstly, grab 4 flour and 14 bowls.
Fill all of the bowls with water and then make 14 pizza bases.
Grab 14 tomatoes, spam click them onto the pizzas,
then 14 cheese and do the same.
Then, cook the pizzas at the range. Go grab a knife from the utensils cupboard, then grab 13 pineapples from the other cupboard. Spam the knife on the pineapples, and then spam the pineapple chunks onto the pizzas. Making these gives around 150 000 Cooking XP per hour.
Cooking here also gains a decent amount of favour. But, not quite as fast as making fertiliser. If you want some Cooking XP, you can do this alternative method. Otherwise, stick to the first methods I spoke about.
