About: Some of the most important things to me: runescape, using computers, football, and xbox 360. I joined instructables to shed some light on some things I like to do and teach some people how to do it.

Intro: Runescape Merching/Flipping Guide.

Hello Instructables,

This is Excellion from Runescape. I'm here today to tell you how I made my current 50m. (Edit: It's 80M now!)

About 5 years ago when the free trade and wilderness were vanquished from the game, many people thought merching was impossible.

Many people found out that it wasn't, and it was more like real world stocks.

Also, if you understand real world stocks, this guide will be very simple for you.

This is updated for the new free trade.
 

Step 1: Finding the Item

Step one:

Finding your preferred item

Item Guide:


0.2m-1m: Lobsters, Coal Ore, Swordfish,  Iron Bars

2m-5m:Rune platelegs, Rune Scimitars, Rune Platebody's, Death Runes

10m+: Bandos Boots (My prefered), Dragon Boots, Berserker Helms, Dragon chainbody.

If you do not want to do any of these items, just check the Grand Exchange Guide page on www.Runescape.com and look for commonly purchased items. Make sure your item's price isn't dying.

(Thanks Kelsey >.>)


Step 2: Finding the Buy/Sell

(Review Both Pictures.)  (And....Lobsters are so great on merching atm)
Most Important Part-

Finding the buy/sell price is somehow confusing so I will break it down to my best ability.

When you do this, you find the Sell price first.
(Open notepad to keep record)

Sell Price: Buy the item for max and copy down the price you bought it for. This will be the price you sell it at.
Buy Price: Sell the item you bought for as low as you can and copy down the price you sold it for.

Example: Bought Bandos Boots for 336504 gp today. Sold them for 330k. Then, I bought 10 Bandos Boots for 330k and sold them for 336504gp.

Step 3: Final Step

The final step is patience.

The items will not Buy/Sell right away. Go watch a movie or do something productive while other Runescape players give you money for your products.

NEVER leave your item on over night. Prices always change and sometimes its negative. Merch always has some risk.

Sometimes merch takes aroudn 15 minutes to an hour. If it takes over an hour, restart your merch and  recheck the buy/sell price.


Thanks for reading. Private message me in Runescape if you need anymore help or do not understand this guide.~~~ Excellion

    seriously? how long have you been playing? firstly, free trade and wilderness were removed in 2007, and are now back. also, advertising your i'ble is not cool. let people find it themselves.

    2011 - 2007 = 4. I said about 5 years ago. I have played for 8 years this summer. How is it advertising? I just said "Hey this is better money making than this, try it out!" Its not like im benefiting from it anyway. Most people don't understand how to merch anyways so I thought I would make it look simple enough for a quick read. Don't sit here and tell me what im doing isn't cool.

    Nice and simple guide.

    All those commenting on his writing need to get a life.

    My tip: buy and sell the same item simultaneouly, that way if the low/high price changes drastically you'll know instantly as the slot will become inactive for 5/10 minutes if your prices are too profitable (and people are beating your offer). Adjust price accordingly.

    Same goes for if the item buys/sells too fast, make your price more profitable otherwise it won't be soon enough!

    I Just wanted to say that kelseymh is wrong about one word. The word is "items".
    Item's is incorrect.

    Also my captcha was "Arasist system". What the heck kind of captchas are you using? It didn't look good at all, lol.

    Hmmm. During English class, perhaps? Pity you weren't paying attention to the "how to write" lesson.

    "Im" -> "I'm" or "I am"
    "was" -> "were"
    "boughten" is not a word
    "items" -> "item's"
    "isnt" -> "isn't"

    And those are only the intro and first step.

    Hi,

    I looked into "boughten" and it is infact a word.

    Just thought I would let you know.

    Have a good day :D

    That's certainly your choice, but then you don't get to claim your writing is fine when the errors are pointed out. And when you start trying to communicate with adults, you're going to look both illiterate and ignorant. Just something to think about for the future.

    Errors fixed. Most adults I speak with on the internet are illiterate, and rather immature over ignorant.

    Sorry, I was referring to real-world adults. Teachers, professors, potential employers. How you communicate, and whether you choose to exercise care in preparing that communication, reflects on how those people judge your potential abilities, before they get to know you in detail.

    It was interesting, but some of the logic didn't make much sense. I will post a separate (top-level) question about that.
