^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is a second version of my guide to profitable high alching.

The first one has reached 2k posts!
Thank you all who helped to keep it alive and make it better or simply expressed many warm words.
Also, big congratulations to those who used it and got their magic skill capes!
This time I've reserved more space to make my guide easier to use. Though I'm intending to do that, please, understand it can take me some time. That's *hy at the moment I simply copied the old thread in its original version.

Disclosure: Please remember this is not a money making guide. This is a guide to obtaining 99 Magic by high alching and not loosing money but rather making a little profit.

NOTE ON THE FREE TRADE BEING BACK.
----------------------------------
I hope my thread can be still of help. Actually, now it will be even easier to use it - we can adjust both price of alching items and nature runes we are willing to pay.
Just remember: AMOUNT THAT AN ITEM ALCHS FOR DOES NOT CHANGE.

I was asked many times about the best items to high alch and how much money did I lose on getting my cape.
People are surprised to hear that actually I made money! And I didn't make myself nature runes but bought them in GE. Money I made maybe wasn't big, but 8 mil profit between just 94-99 is better than losing on Zanaris' rubies or on yew/mage long bows.
My method requires just knowledge of amounts of money different items high alch for and subtraction. For instant: magic long bow alchs for 1536 coins. If you buy nats for 230, you would have to buy bows for no more than 1306 in order to not lose money. Formula is simply:
MONEY ITEM HIGH ALCHS FOR - COST OF NATURE RUNE = PRICE TO PAY FOR ITEM TO NOT LOSE. If you want to make profit you need to pay even less.
Remember:
-Price of nats and most items are changing daily. Don't buy too many things to alch not having enough nats. Runes' price can go up faster then you are able to alch all items you bought. Rather first get nats (I was just buying 1k each time) and then calculate prices accordingly to what you've paid for them;
-Be prepare that you will have to "live" in GE. First, because items you will order not always come fast in big amounts. Second, because of trading limit of GE that not allows to buy too many of same items (sometimes only 100). This limit resets every 4 hours;
-Don't be greedy - you can put minimum price on some items (like mystic robes) but on some put price that gives you just little profit or keeps you at no lose. Don't worry - on your way to 99 you will alch so many items that even few coins profit on one will change at the end to nice money;
-Don't be scared you don't have millions to start with. If you are poor, buy just 100 nats and start alching items. You will be able to afford more and more each time;
-Have always 5-6 orders on different items in ge. Once they fill up, just alch them and place a new order.
Below there's a list of items and amounts they alch for:

<<<<<Each "alch" gives 65 magic exp and requires one nature rune. Most players can alch 1k of items in one hour. That means you can get about 65k magic exp per hour****;>>>>
Please, note that my list contains only items that were relatively easy to buy at GE and worked for me. Also, that after the release of pvp worlds, some rune items don't reach again low enough price.
My list shows items and amount of money you get for high alching them. Also written with capitals words shows the best one to type in the "buy" box in GE to find them easy.

How could I forgot about battelstaves?!
All BATTLESTAVES alch for 9,300. From four of them, AIR BATTLESTAVES are the best (even bought in medium market price!). Few times I was able to get also water ones for a good price.
One more tip:
When using games necklaces or rings of dueling to tele - don't use them up to the end. Instead alch them when they have their last charge left. This way you not only can get extra magic exp for alching them but also some money. (rings of dueling high alch for 765 and game necklaces for 630)
Two more things:
- As I said before - above items worked for me in August and at the beginning of September 2008. Now, demand and supply of those items can be different, changing their prices.
- High alching requires a lot of patience! Not only while you click on items (remember you can alch noted items) but also when you wait in GE for your order to be completed.
Good luck with your 99 magic cape!
HERE IS WHAT ONE OF PLAYERS WHO USES MY GUIDE WROTE. Thank you, Sjm*q!: "For all the people who have read this guide I have some advice - you don't need to be on all the time - I put an order in for around 250 diferent alches and then logged off for around an hour , came back and all of them had bought ! I then alched them all , stocked up on nats and repeated the process. That's the best thng about the g/e. Also... Take 1 or 2 days to figure out what buys and what doesn't buy. (be at g/e have calculator ready and this guide open ) DO NOT buy things at lowest unless they buy instantly , because they will not buy !!! Have faith, try it for a few days if you don't like making a profit alching and not having to be on all the time then that's up to you"
