Old School RS: Achieving 1-99 Crafting Skill Guide 2024

Apr-02-2024 PST

Greetings, adventurers! Whether you're a seasoned player or just starting your journey in Old School RS (OSRS), you've probably encountered the intricate world of skills and crafting. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the depths of the crafting skill, exploring the ins and outs from level 1 to the prestigious level 99. Let's uncover the secrets and strategies that will lead you to mastery in crafting.


Why Craft?


Crafting is a versatile skill in OSRS, offering a fast and buyable path to level 99. Over the years, the cost of leveling crafting has decreased, making it an attractive skill for both new and experienced players. In this guide, we'll focus on a fast and cheap pathway that allows you to achieve 99 crafting in just 50 hours for a reasonable 39 million OSRS gold.


Before we dive into the details, it's crucial to note that crafting is not only a means to an end for a high-level cape but also a valuable skill for producing jewelry. In the future, I'll be creating a specific guide for Iron Men, highlighting the significance of crafting in their unique journeys.


Crafting Requirements:


To embark on your crafting adventure, you'll need to meet specific requirements. Notable quests include Legends Quest, Sins of the Father, Dragon Slayer II, and Monkey Madness II, each demanding a certain crafting level. To obtain the quest cape, you'll need level 70 crafting, while achieving the achievement diary cape for Iron Men requires a crafting level of 85.


The Crafting Skill Cape, earned at level 99, offers one of the most useful perks in the game – unlimited teleports to the crafting guild, conveniently located next to a bank.


Crafting Pathways:


Now, let's explore the three main pathways to 99 crafting, each catering to different playstyles and budgets.


1. Fast and Cheap Pathway (50 hours, 39m gold):


    • Start by cutting gems until level 54.

    • Transition to crafting Battle Stars, beginning with Opals.

    • Progress through Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies, and finally, Air Battle Stars.

    • Achieve over 330k XP per hour with Air Battle Stars, making this method both fast and cost-effective.


2. Fastest Viable Pathway (44 hours, 145m gold):


    • Similar to the fast and cheap pathway, start with cutting gems.

    • Progress to crafting Battle Stars until level 71.

    • Shift to crafting Dragonhide Bodies from level 71 to 99.

    • This pathway is faster but comes at a higher cost, with Dragonhide Bodies offering over 420k XP per hour.


3. Profitable Pathway (117 hours, 33m profit):


    • Begin by cutting gems, then craft bracelets starting at level 23.

    • Progress through Opals, Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies, and finally, Diamond Bracelets.

    • Diamond Bracelets provide around 130k XP per hour and result in a profit of over 33 million gold from level 58 to 99.


Alternative Methods:


For those seeking variety, there are alternative crafting methods:


    • Drift Nets at level 26 offer decent GP and XP per hour.

    • Glass blowing is an AFK-friendly option with varying XP rates.

    • Crafting Amethyst Tips from level 83 can be a profitable venture.


Free-to-Play Pathways:


Even if you're not a member, there are viable crafting paths for free-to-play players:


    • Cut Diamonds for the fastest XP (290k per hour, 70m cost).

    • Cutting Rubies is a cost-effective alternative with around 230k XP per hour and a 4m cost.

    • Making Diamond Amulets from the highest level onwards results in a 15m profit and 100k XP per hour.


Crafting in Old School RuneScape offers a multitude of pathways to suit your preferences and budget. Whether you choose the fast and cheap route, the fastest viable pathway, or the profitable journey, reaching level 99 crafting is an accomplishment that unlocks valuable perks and sets you on the path to becoming a master crafter. As you embark on your crafting adventure, may your chisel be sharp, and your gems shine brightly in the world of Gielinor. Happy crafting!
