Trading sticks are the main currency of the jungle village of Tai Bwo Wannai. They can be received by doing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, selling items to the shop inside the wooden fence that you reinforce in Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup, killing monsters, or buying them from other players.

Acquiring trading sticksEdit

Tai Bwo Wannai CleanupEdit

During the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame you receive favour. Telling villagers that you’ve done some work, they will exchange your favour and give you trading sticks. After a villager has exchanged with you, the villager will not exchange with you until a variable amount of time has passed. This is the most efficient way to get trading sticks since you also get several skills trained by doing the minigame.

Selling itemsEdit

This is the quick way to get trading sticks. If you’ve completed Shilo Village and mine gems or you make a lot of cocktails, it is easy to sell items to Gabooty in Tai Bwo Wannai. He will buy all of the Shilo gems, uncut and cut, and all of the cocktails. Note: He will not buy the 'premade' version of cocktails.

Trading with other playersEdit

Trading sticks can be traded with other players and bought on the Grand Exchange. Their relatively low cost makes this a viable option for obtaining trading sticks.

Spending trading sticksEdit

The Village ShopEdit

The Gabooty's village shop is within the wooden fence of Tai Bwo Wannai village. You can choose to trade for cocktails, villager clothes, gem machetes, tropical gems, and gout tubers, which are normally out of stock. Wearing the villager robes will cause the villagers to give you more trading sticks exchanged to favour.

Hardwood GroveEdit

Near the eastern end of the village is an enclosed area known as the Hardwood Grove Inside are mahogany and teak trees, however you must pay 100 trading sticks to enter.


5000 trading sticks can be used as a one-time payment to Banisoch to access a shortcut to the metal dragon area of the Brimhaven Dungeon.
