On an ironman account, Crafting is an important skill to train in order to tier up your magic and ranged armor, as well as to make wands and orbs and complete various quests. It's such a vital skill to train, but seems to require so much time investment for the return. Today I'm going to be showing you three effective ways to train Crafting at the intermediate levels and beyond without being able to buy your materials.
 
NUMBER 3
HARD LEATHER BOOTS
Requirements: 27 Crafting, some gold and thread
100k+ Gold/hour, 10k+ Crafting exp/hr
 
Hard leather boots are unique in the crafting skill as an item which is worth far more gold than other items made of similar materials. They sell to General Stores for 300GP each and High Alchemy for 600GP. Since it only costs 3gp and some thread to create these boots, this means you're making almost 300gp each per cow you kill. While the experience per hour is not the best, this is a great way to gain crafting exp while generating early-game gold to fund your other endeavors.
 
NUMBER 2
COCKROACH SOLDIERS/CARAPACE AND HIGH ALCHEMY
Requirements: 34 Crafting, 55 Magic, High Alchemy Runes
150k-200k/hr, 6-10k Crafting exp/hr, 20-35k Combat xp/hr
 
Cockroach Soldiers are another option at low crafting levels which can generate lots of gold, especially with the use of High Alchemy. They have a 100% drop of Carapace, every 2 of which gives 24 crafting xp for Carapace Legs. The legs High Alchemy for 2100GP a piece, so this is a great way to generate gold and crafting exp while also getting some combat exp. The cockroach soldiers drop some pretty cool items as well, including noted mithril and adamantite ore, uncut gems, and rune scimitars and square shields which can greatly increase gp/hr if high alchemied.
 
NUMBER 1
TEMPLE TREKKING
Requirements: Quest: Darkness of Hallowvale
1-3k Silver Bars/hr (30k+ Crafting xp/hr) and Rewards/progress in minigame
 
Temple Trekking is a classic minigame that's been around for over 8 years now, in which you will lead adventurers through Morytania from one side of Mort Myre to the other. In order to do this method some questing is involved, you have to do Priest in Peril, In Search of the Myreque, and In Aid of the Myreque to play this minigame but it's advised to do Darkness of Hallowvale as well to unlock the Return trip, called Burgh De Rott Ramble. All in all this will require numerous skills to be in the 20s or 30s, full list in the description below, so this is the hardest method in this list, but it has numerous benefits. First of all, getting Silver Bars as a reward from Temple Trekking is one of the fastest ways an ironman account can bank crafting experience - with the potential to get thousands of silver bars per hour, it destroys mining or harvesting most hides for banked crafting xp/hr. Once you've earned the bars they can be used to make Unstrung Holy Symbols for 50 crafting exp and 60GP at a general store, training crafting at 50k+ exp per hour. Training crafting in this way will also mean you're leveling up your companions through the Trek, which can unlock pretty potent rewards including the Ouroboros Pouch, an infinitely charged druid pouch; the Constructor's outfit, which provides 1% bonus exp to construction per piece equipped; and there are other rewards as well including the Lumberjack Outfit for bonus Woodcutting experience. Not only that, but Temple Trekking will work as a method to obtain bowstrings, raw sharks, low to high level herbs, or tomes of experience in skills like Agility, Thieving, Hunter, Woodcutting, and Mining. It's a massively useful piece of content and I would suggest you go unlock it if you haven't already.
 
So that's my Top 3 Ways to Train Crafting for an Ironman on Runescape, as always thanks for watching, and if you want to see more videos like this don't forget to subscribe to my channel and like this video to support what I'm doing. Leave a comment in the comments section on YouTube if there are any good Crafting training methods that I missed, and if you have a question about RuneScape you'd like answered, leave that down there too.

Thanks for posting the transcript as it let's me skim through for the main parts of information. Didn't know about how much hardleather boots sell for but the other two methods are pretty well known. I believe blowing glass on entrana is good, or something similar at least

Glad you liked the transcript, I'll keep doing that.

 

The good thing about the Hardleather boots is that it doesn't require 55 magic or trained combat stats and just over an hour of it is how I got my first 100k cash on my ironman when I was just starting. It's in easily accessible Burthorpe and everything you need is there (except maybe the thread?).

  • Making Unstrung Symbols from level 16 to 99 Crafting is 260,634 bars, netting 15,638,040 GP.
  • Making Tiaras from level 23 to 99 Crafting is 248,156 bars, netting 7,444,680 GP.
^For anyone trying to weigh whether they want more profit or faster XP.  (It's hard to say which is better.  I'd probably personally end up going with the faster XP of Tiaras so that I could spend less time grinding on this single skill.  However, the added 8M GP can be very useful for Ironmen... though in the long haul is it enough to make up for the added hours or is it trivial?)

Great point & thanks for the figures. The Tiaras are probably the better way to go, there are faster ways to make money... like the cockroach soldiers, alching carapace, for example. (since it's a part of my list) Or tons of other things tbh.
