Prices of materials will fluctuate, it is recommended to check the Grand Exchange prices before buying and selling them in large quantities.

Training[edit | edit source]

Starting off[edit | edit source]

There are plenty of quests that give Crafting experience upon completion, which allows the player to skip a lot of early Crafting training. If the player is going to complete them anyway, it is best to do as early as possible since the experience rewards benefit more at lower levels as the training methods are slower.

Fastest experience[edit | edit source]

Hard leather required: 559

Total cost: 93,353

Levels 20–54/62/71/77 – Cutting gems[edit | edit source]

Cutting gems is one of the fastest methods to train Crafting while also being available early. Even at level 55 it is recommended to skip dragonstone completely and continue with diamonds because of the dramatically increased cost. One needs to cut 13,259 uncut diamond to get from level 43 to level 77.

Gems are cut at a rate of one gem per 2 ticks, and 27 can be cut per inventory. Therefore, each inventory takes 54 ticks or about 32.4 seconds.

Levels 54–63/99 – Battlestaves[edit | edit source]

Battlestaves offer fast experience and reduced losses compared to other methods, but have high up-front costs. Depending on prices it may be better to craft green or blue d'hide bodies instead of fire or air battlestaves as they offer similar experience rates.

They are made at a rate of once every 2 ticks, and 14 can be made per inventory. Therefore, each inventory takes 28 ticks which is about 16.8 seconds.

Levels 63/77–99 – D'hide bodies[edit | edit source]

At level 63 you can start crafting green d'hide bodies. They have comparable experience rates to fire battlestaves, so the choice between the two should be decided by Grand Exchange prices.

They are crafted at a rate of one per 3 ticks, and up to 8 bodies can be crafted per inventory. Therefore, each inventory takes 24 ticks or about 14.4 seconds.

Other methods[edit | edit source]

Levels 5+ (Alternative method) - Crafting jewellery[edit | edit source]

For players who would prefer to break even or make small amounts of money while crafting, a solid alternative is to craft Gold, Sapphire, or Emerald jewellery at the Edgeville furnace.

Check the Jewellery calculator for the estimated profits, but remember to start out small and closely check your profits on the Grand Exchange.

You can expect to earn about 10,000 - 70,000 experience per hour this way depending on your speed and choice of jewellery. At level 74, rates in excess of 130,000 xp/hr can be achieved when crafting dragonstone bracelets.

Levels 7-99 - Gold Bracelets[edit | edit source]

A profitable way to train crafting is making gold bracelets. You can expect around 40,000 experience per hour. A gold bar costs 69 gp on the Grand Exchange, the gold bracelets can be high alchemized for 330gp or sold to a general store for 220 gp with its price decreasing after every sale. Thus you can earn -19 per bracelet by high alching or 122 by selling it on the GE.

An alternative way is to buy gold ore from Ordan for 225 gold, if smelted with the goldsmith gauntlets the player earns a lot of smithing experience as well. Ironman chat badge.pngThis method is especially good for ironmen.

Levels 61-99 - Lunar spells[edit | edit source]

At magic level 76 you can cast the Spin Flax spell. This method has a money making guide.

You can expect around 77,000 crafting experience per hour as well as 77,000 magic experience per hour.

From magic level 77 you can cast Superglass Make. This method has a money making guide.

This can get you around 108,000 crafting experience per hour (using giant seaweeds) as well as 56,000 magic experience per hour.

These spells require the Lunar spellbook which has a quest requirement of crafting level 61.

Levels 1–83/99 – Molten glass[edit | edit source]

Blowing molten glass with a glassblowing pipe offers slow experience rates, but it requires little attention and is usually cheaper compared to crafting battlestaves or d'hide bodies.

Glass items are produced at a rate of one per 3 ticks, and 27 can be made per inventory. Therefore, an inventory takes 81 ticks or about 48.6 seconds. You can blow roughly 1700-1800 per hour.

Levels 83/85/87–99 – Cutting amethyst[edit | edit source]

Cutting amethyst into ranging material with a chisel will often yield very small losses while being more experience than glassblowing, making it a very good method for those who are willing to sacrifice the speed of other methods for cheaper crafting experience.
