   The Alchemy Guide provides players with help on high and low alchemy spells and which items are profitable or good for experience. Please remember that the RuneScape economy is always changing, which means some information in this article may be slightly inaccurate or outdated.

A confirmation window when casting High Alchemy on items with a Grand Exchange value of 500,000gp or higher has been added. This should prevent the accidental alching of those expensive items.

When one is using the Explorer's ring to low alchemy items, it does not show the 500,000 confirmation screen.

Profit scale

Note: The profit scale reflects the High Level Alchemy spell only. Low Level Alchemy is generally not used for turning profit.

***** A downright horrible choice to alchemise, simply because the item's value/rarity is worth far more than the coins returned from casting High Level Alchemy.
***** The cost of the item and nature runes needed for alchemy far surpass that of the alchemy price, meaning players makes a negative amount of money.
***** The cost of the raw materials to create the item or the item itself plus the nature runes needed for alchemy slightly surpass that of the alchemy price, thus making these item unprofitable.
***** These items are good for gaining Magic experience as the final loss from the item is very close to zero.
***** Alching these items will turn a small profit, but they are hard to buy on the Grand Exchange
***** Alching these items will turn a small profit, and are usually easy to buy on the Grand Exchange. Highly recommended.

Alchemy values

What follows is a listing of items and their low/high alchemy values; i.e. how many coins each item yields for its respective spell.

  • Note that the current market price of Nature runes is: 232
  • Objects in italics are for members' only.
  • 1 Based on crafted nature runes that are crafted from pure essence that you mined yourself. This method takes a lot more time and is usually not recommended as the time spent could instead be used for a money making method which would cover the losses you suffer purchasing nature runes from the GE.
  • 2 Based on nature runes purchased from the GE.
