Old School Runescape - The Complete Crafting Guide
Crafting in OSRS might seem a bit unnecessary, but it is actually a good way to make money! Here you will find the easiest way to max your level on Crafting skill!
Crafting is a free skill that gives you the ability to create various items such as weapons and accessories. It can be trained by combining different materials to create an item, and each item has a required Crafting level. Although it’s a free skill, you better use the P2P training methods to get much higher EXP/H.
This skill is not very important, but it is mostly used to make money. Reaching Level 99 Crafting is a great achievement as you will be awarded a Crafting Cape which makes earning money through Crafting much easier. But overall there are much better money making methods, so making money through Crafting is not the best choice.
There are many ways to train this skill, but most of them are slow or are mainly focused on making money. This article will focus only on the fastest way to reach Level 99 Crafting, ignoring the other methods. Beware that you will need a good amount of OSRS Gold to directly train Crafting through the Grand Exchange.
The following methods are only AFK/Semi-AFK and mostly P2P.
Make sure to check out all 23 OSRS skills in our relevant guide.

Crafting training totally depends on you and how active are you during the process. Although the mentioned methods are AFK/Semi-AFK, you still need to repeat the process every few seconds.
There are many alternative methods to train Crafting, but most of them are slow and click intensive. Some methods are risky such as cutting Gems which makes you lose EXP and/or money using it at low Crafting levels. But by following this guide you will reach safely Level 99 Crafting in a short time.
