Old School RuneScape players can employ the following shortcuts to profitable crafting training through the early levels. This old school RuneScape guide will detail how to get crafting up through profitable training.
Start out by buying shears from the Lumbridge general store. Shear 20 sheep and spin the wool in Lumbridge. Proceed to Farmer Fred and speak with him twice to complete sheep shearer for level three crafting, giving him the 20 unnoted balls of wool to complete the quest.
Proceed to west of the fishing guild and complete the dwarf cannon quest for more crafting experience, enough to hit level nine.
Gain more crafting training to reach level 10; mining and wetting 10 clay in Port Khazard or west Varrock and making into bowls at the Ardougne or Barbarian village should get the level.
Travel to Tree Gnome stronghold and pick the flax spawn that is by the north bank stairs and bank when filled. The few seconds lost waiting for respawns are less than time spent walking in seer's.
In Lumbridge, use the top floor bank to withdraw flax for spinning on the spinning wheel one floor below, until all the flax are spun. Approximately 600 flax are sufficient to reach level 27.
At this point, any silver bars, sapphires, and emeralds can be cut or crafted. Emerald rings can be made and turned into rings of dueling for easy teleportation to Castle Wars.
