A guide for new Runsecape players to help identify and avoid scams that can leave you hosed....
I've been playing Runescape since 2002 and I have seen a lot of scams go down. I even fell for a few when I was a wet behind the ears noob. This guide is directed towards new players and I will point out some common scams that players try as well as some that were tried on me which I found to be hilarious, and hopefully these will help you know when someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyesâ€¦.
This scam usually starts by someone offering to buy or sell an item for a ridiculous amount of money eg â€œbuying rune 2 hander 100kâ€.
A merchanting guide which doesn't tell you items to merchant but actually explains tips and tricks to make you merchant more efficiently, like typing, clicking, trading, supply and demand, Judging competition, and more! This guide is not like others and uses a new, and much better approach!
Supply and demand is the most main factor that depends on which item to merchant. You should know (some at least) what items are being produced more than needed, and what items are being produced less than needed. Also keep in mind that things that people rarely buy (or a 1 time buy) (ex. full Saradomin or Zamorak) may not always be good merchanting items. A lot of merchanting comes from when you come across a person selling something at a low price, because he/she wants to get rid of it fast, so this guide will be mainly explaining tips and tricks while merchanting.
Learn the secrets of leveling up in Runescape.
Welcome, as you have found my first guide to Runescape. Me, Runescape leveling up guru will teach you the secrets of Runescape. There will be more upcoming guides on this game so watch out for them.
Basically, I am going to teach you the first thing about Runescape that most people don't seem to get. This is patients. A key to level up in Runescape is to have lots of patients and stick to what you want to level up in. For example, I you want to level up in woodcutting, you don't (fletch/fire making) your levels at the same time. This will only slow down the process reducing the time to level up.
Patients is the secret to leveling up your avatar in Runescape as Runescape is a long playing game to master. This means that the game can't be skilled on the first day that you start playing. A good way to level up without getting bored is to listen to music as you play. This will increase your time of interest and will induce you to play longer.
Just finished buying your Runescape membership or just want to know how to make more money? In p2p if you have a good stats money will flow in. Some good ways include fletching, fishing, runecrafting and woodcutting.
Fletching [70+ Required]
You will require 70+ fletching in order to profit from fletching. A good way to get this stat is to make the best unstrung longbow you can until willows. Once you can make willow longs either chop around 5k willows or buy them.
Once you are 70 fletching this is how you make lots of $$$. First you buy 1k Yew logs 280-300ea. Make them into yew longs (u). Now you buy 1k bowstrings (200ea) and make into yew longs. Sell the yew longs to alchers for 600-650ea. Some variables in this include chopping your own yews, picking your own flax and stringing. In 1 hour you can easily make 100k, and soon you will be rich.
Fishing [70+ Required]
There are tons of money making and merchanting guides out there, so I thought I would publish one guide for f2p (free to play=non members) that is about spending the money in a good way. This guide should be about how you can use your money to get your skills up.
Different skills take different amount of gp to level. For example, for mining you just need to buy a pickaxe to start training it, but if you should train magic, you need to buy a lot of runes.
I will cover each skill with one little text, so just check the text about the skill you're going to train, and some helpful advices will stand there about how you should use your money when you want to raise the level in that skill.
