This article is about the free-to-play guide. For the members' guide, see Pay-to-play Crafting training.

Crafting is not very hard to train in free-to-play, but training it requires patience or lots of money.

TrainingEdit

EquipmentEdit

Players should ensure that their tool belt contains a chisel, shears, a needle, an amulet mould, a necklace mould, a ring mould, a tiara mould, and a holy mould.

Experience per hourEdit

This section shows the maximum possible exp/hr, and the potential costs, for certain Crafting training methods. The last column shows you what the possible profit/loss is per hour, according to the info on the left.

General notesEdit

  • All jewellery smelting should be done at the Lumbridge furnace using the Combat Academy bank chest.
  • This guide does not focus on the cutting of gems, as that is extremely expensive. It focuses on jewellery smelting instead as that is far cheaper and still very quick.

Crafting GuildEdit

The Crafting Guild can be entered by any player who has a Crafting level of 40 or higher. It contains seven gold ore rocks, six silver ore rocks, six clay rocks, a water source, several potter's wheels for making unfired clay items, a pottery oven for hardening unfired clay items, a spinning wheel for spinning wool into balls of wool, and a Tanner who tans cowhides for a price]]. Additionally, a cow field is located immediately west of the Crafting Guild, and a flock of sheep can be found north of the Crafting Guild.

A common technique for guild training is the making of woodcutting urns. Players have everything they need at the crafting guild to make urns (clay rocks, a water source, a potter's wheel, and a pottery oven), and it is common for players to make full batches of urns without runes and drop them. This technique can yield over one thousand experience. Some players bank the urns that they make at the bank chest in the westernmost section of the Clan Camp. Use of the clan vexillum's teleport function is recommended for those who choose to do so.

Dungeoneering trainingEdit

Training within Daemonheim is an alternative method of training Crafting. This method costs nothing, but its effectiveness is depends on the player's ability to gather coins in Daemonheim. Players should always choose ranged hides (leathers) to craft as the magic armours need to be spun on spinning wheel. Although experience per hide increases according to the requirement of armour crafted, an upper tier hide will cost much more but not yield proportional experience.

Using the methods below, a semi-experienced player (≥30 Dungeoneering) can expect to go from 1 to 31 Crafting raiding less than five small dungeons. This especially benefits any players who have neglected Crafting (but not many other skills, which Dungeoneering depends on).

Generally players should craft protoleather bodies, available at 9 Crafting. The idea is to buy in mass protomastyx hide, and thread, and craft the hides into protoleather bodies (consuming 5 hides and 1 thread per body). This method is most cost effective and will yield 99.5 experience for 1,690 coins spent in dungeon, counting the five hides and one thread used minus refund by selling the body. About 85,000 coins will be needed to craft 50 protoleather bodies, at least 20 empty inventory space is recommended to allocate for 4 bodies per inventory, and if desired players can free spaces to make 25 slots for crafting 5 bodies.

Note, to prolong this method on a tight budget, if you have Magic 55 and Runecrafting 44, especially if you have a staff or wand bound, you can craft nature runes and then cast High Level Alchemy on the protoleather bodies. This will give 840 coins, minus the 50 coins per essence (if bought) so 790 coins, instead of the usual 420 from selling. This method, however, can be quite tedious. You might consider crafting the bodies in bulk first, dropping them on the floor, and then, when you're out of money, pick them up and start casting High Level Alchemy. Using this method will allow you to craft 1 extra body for every 5-6 bodies alchemised. You can slightly increase the efficiency of this method if you find rune essence or nature runes instead of buying them, and if you are able to craft multiple nature runes. If you don't have a staff or wand, you would have to craft the fire runes, decreasing the payback of this method by 50 coins per each essence used (assuming the essence is bought).
