Azure skillchompas are a special type of weapon obtained by catching azure skillchompas to the north of the snowy hunter area. When wielded, they provide a number of benefits in the Fishing, Mining, Woodcutting, and Divination skills. They require level 51 in the relevant skill to be used.
Every action done with a skillchompa consumes one, regardless of the success of the action. Skillchompas grant an additional 10% experience on successful completion of an action and additionally grant experience equivalent to 5% of having successfully completed an action each time an action is attempted unsuccessfully. For example, mining coal gives 50 experience normally; using skillchompas gives 2.5 experience each time a player attempts to mine coal but is unsuccessful and 55 experience when successful.
They also provide specific benefits in each of the skills they aid. When used in Woodcutting and Mining, they operate as a rune pickaxe or rune hatchet, respectively. When used to train Divination, they give an extra 10% chance of obtaining enriched memory when harvesting wisps. When used to train Fishing, they grant a 3% increased chance to catch a fish or item.
Azure skillchompa's are a rather expensive method to train skills, but add quite a bit to one's experience gained per hour. Using them at seren stones gave an average experience gained per hour of about 249,000. An hour without azure skillchompas gave an average of about 206,000 experience gained. An increase of 43,000 experience per hour was gained while using an average of 1800 chinchompas per hour with a current price of 720,000 per hour. For Mining, azure skillchompas are more efficient than crystal as the extra experience per hour from crystal skillchompas is only 3000 while they are almost twice as expensive.
