Im a new member and I have low skills as I am new. I have no clue where to get started. I have tried to do the waterfall quest but get one shot by the gaint and lost everything, I trtied to go to sand crabs and lost everything to the sand crabs I dont know what to do to lvl up its agonising getting killed ll the time. Ive spent hours running round to locations which are apparently good for new players but I just get killed instantly.
What can I do, really getting put off with this game as a new player
Whenever you train a combat stat always start off with chickens in lumbridge farm. When you get your stats to lvl 10, move onto cows and get level 20-30. When you feel like you're done there, go kill al-kharid warriors in the palace. You could stay there until level 40, but you'll need a lot of food to train.
A good cheap food is tuna, but if you have money you could buy monkfish. There is a kebab salesman who sells kebabs in al Kharid for 1 gp each, but you need to click through a dialogue each time. After you finish at warriors, you could go to sand crabs. If warriors are too hard for you, you could try monks west of edgeville in the monastery. They heal you if you talk to them so you dont need food. But there are only 3 and they are popular to train on.
Leveling combat is pretty easy when you know how. Sometimes it's better to train up to combat level 40s as f2p. The path I described is going to take you at least a week. Another good quest for you is vampire slayer. The mob is slightly easier to kill, and when you finish the quest you'll get 20 attack.

Toggle your quest list to look for f2p quests. Even as a member, these are a good place to start for a low level. All of this activity will be around Lumbridge, Varrock, and Falador. This the "f2p area" but will have things to do most appropriate for your level to start. There will also be early level things you can do from Catherby over to Ardougne (thieving, more farming spots, etc).
If you go to Turael in Burthorpe, he will give you beginning level Slayer assignments that will train your combat skills and Slayer with level-appropriate mobs assigned.
Unfortunately, as a truly new player, no one should have been giving you advice to do something like Waterfall quest straight off. People that have played the game before have come up with tricks (including taking friends as meat shields) to take advantage of the melee levels as early as possible. It's not necessary, and that's not something to do if you're new to the game.
Did you complete all of your Adventurer Jon tasks? If you have not I would suggest completing those. You'll get armour and money as well as a better understanding about this game. Entry level skills that can make you money right away would be all of your gathering skills such as Woodcutting, Mining and Fishing. I would also suggest as you are leveling your combat stats train slayer with it, slayer is a very useful skill when trying to make money. If you would like to know more about the skills there are very in depth guides on youtube.

I recommend finding an OSRS Wiki/guide to single out the quests that are easy to do at your level. Most of them give a major xp boost to different skills that could easily bring you from level one to 15+ depending on the quest and skill it boosts. You could always find players in-game that will show you the ropes or hit the Old school clan forums and join one. Most of them are super friendly clans with knowledgeable players that will do just about anything to help new players.
