Crafting

Crafting can be one of the more profitable skills that Runescape has to offer. Although it can be costly to train at times, it also yields much profit, providing you know what to craft. Many essential items, such as the Amulet of Glory, can only be made through the crafting skill. Crafting is also used in the making of dragonhide armour used in the Ranging skill. Crafting is a core skill in Runescape, and as such, a skill that every great adventurer must master to be able to get hold of certain odd items, such as a combat bracelet, quickly and efficiently.

[edit] Gem Cutting

When mining you will often gather a gemstone as well as the ore you're attempting to mine. These uncut gemstones are also dropped by some monsters. In their uncut form, they cannot be made into jewellery, so you must cut them first using a chisel. Your chance of obtaining a gem from a rock will be raised if you wear a charged Amulet of Glory.

[edit] Gold Jewellery

Gold jewellery is made using special moulds which can be bought from crafting shops (one located in Al Kharid). Jewellery is made from gold bars and can be embedded with cut gemstones during the crafting process, but not after. To craft a piece of jewellery, have the appropriate mould, a gold bar and any cut gem you wish to use in your inventory, then use the gold bar with any furnace.

[edit] Silver

Silver items often have particular uses, and are frequently used in quests, such as In Search of the Myreque. Silver Holy Symbols in particular are a favourite item to train with in both Members and F2p, as it gives decent experience and the silver ore is easily obtained.

[edit] Spinning

Some items in their raw form have little purpose, but can be spun into more useful items, such as to string amulets. To spin a raw material, simply use it on a spinning wheel, and choose how many you wish to make. There are many spinning wheels throughout RuneScape, including the following:

[edit] Glass Items

Glass items have various uses, from forming lamps and lanterns which you can rely on in the darkest dungeons, to the powerful orbs atop battlestaves, to fishbowls which can hold your very own pet fish! To make an item of glass, you will first need to gather a bucket of sand, and some seaweed. Cook the seaweed on a range to produce soda ash, then use either the sand or the ash on a furnace to produce molten glass. You'll then need a Glassblowing rod to form the molten glass into a particular shape.

Sand pits can be found in various locations, such as Zanaris and Entrana, while the Glassblowing pipe is obtainable from the house on Entrana, west of the furnace.

[edit] Leather work

Leather is particularly sought-after by rangers, as it offers good protection from magic-based attacks while also being flexible enough to not hinder their archery. Both Dragonhide and Leather are light, allowing for flexibility on the field of battle. Simple cow leather is suitable for beginner rangers, while leather made from various colours of dragonhide are far more valuable and are commonly used by the higher levelled rangers of Runescape.

Before you can use an animal hide (cowhide, snakeskin or dragonhide) you must have it tanned. You can do this by taking your hides to a tannery and paying the tanner to tan it for you, which can be found in Al Kharid, the Crafting guild and the Ranging guild.

[edit] Battlestaff Tops

Magi everywhere use battlestaves to help strengthen their magical attacks, while cutting down on rune consumption. Plain battlestaves can be purchased from Zaff's store in Varrock, but it takes a skilled crafter to place an elemental orb on top of the staff. Orbs are made of glass, and are infused with elemental power using the special magic spells.

[edit] Weaving

Weaving is now almost hardly used by people these days as the products made from it can be easily bought from shops or the Grand Exchange. However, weaving does give a nice amount of experience for the crafter. To weave, you will have to use the base material on a loom, which is located at the farm south of Falador, and the Elven Camp. The base materials for weaving are balls of wool, jute fibres (receive from growing jute hops), and willow branches, (obtain by using secataur on a healthy willow tree) The willow tree has to be grown by yourself.
