Tips in Leveling Up in Runescape

Here are some tips on leveling your prayer, ranging and magic level. There are some important facts that people don’t realize. Here is my view on the subject.

There are many different techniques in leveling up your skills. As your level gets higher, the experience points needed to achieve the next level also gets higher. Especially for non-members, it is even more difficult. This article is for those average non-members that are trying to raise their ranging, magic, and prayer skills. Here are some tips on leveling up efficiently:


Ranging is a type of combat that requires a bit of money to use. When you range, you should wear ranging armor. This includes cowls, coifs, chaps, vambraces, leather bodies, and etc.

Important: Do not wear melee armor while ranging, such as bronze, iron, steel, black, rune, and etc. People don’t realize this, but wearing melee armor decreases your range bonuses. Also, this applies to gloves too. You should wear vambraces instead. Wizards, especially, are the creatures most vulnerable to range.


Magic is a very expensive type of combat, but it is probably the most effective. When you mage, it is Important that you do not were any type of range or melee armor, such as leather bodies, rune, addy, etc. These decrease your magic bonuses. Instead, wear wizard robes and wizards hats. An anti-dragon shield is also good to have too, since it does not decrease your mage bonus. It is also a good idea to mage with an element staff, such as air staff, fire staff, etc., since they save you runes and give additional bonuses. Magic is very effective if the opponent is very melee armor.

Important: This means a person in full rune is more vulnerable to magic opposed to a person wearing nothing at all.


The best location for a non-member to bury bones is the ruins south of Varrock. Bones are constantly appearing in that area, especially if there are lots of people killing wizards. Be warned, there are many level 20 wizards that attack low level players. Big bones are also good choices. If you are rich, you can simply buy them from other players at the west Varrock bank.

Also, work hard to get your prayer up to 31. Once you do this, you could enter the second level of the monastery north of Falador. If you pray at that alter, you get 2 extra prayer points per charge.

    kinda useful for many low-level players, but once ur a mem. there r tons of other ways to get mage up wearing melee armor. EXAMPLE: weilding a mystic mud staff, while wearing full mith, u just need bodies, and u cast curse so every thing bounces off, and gives u tones of magick ep. range EXAMPLE: wearing full karils, or anytype of blessed d hide u may want to put on a sheild or a defender etc. b/ if u want to whip out a dds then u have higher strenth bonuses. Basicly if u want high prayer u have to be a mem. or it will take u forever. prayer is all money or time. i just buy dragon bones and bury them. gl ppls :-]

    u should try working ur cb and pray at crandor with the moss giants NOTE: u must complete dragon slayer. For range try working on there too if ur range lvl is 60 or higher. DONT trust anyone if they say train on lesser demons if ur range is lower then 60. I tried that nd died. For mage train on F.O.G (fist of guthix) they give u free runes while playing it. {add me if u want (King Alv1) so ya}

I tried it when my mage lvl was 40 the demons got owned plus it dropped rune med helm the first time i tried it.ENTER it at ur risk….(O and whoever has tips for making money…plz tell me. I went broke after buying a Gold-trimed D~hide and full rune plus a rune bersk,thnx.

    Dude this is fail. Imagine levelling your prayer from 50 to 51. Lets say it takes 10k xp, by burying bones you will need to bury 2000 bones for 1 level up. that will take ages!

    If your prayer is too hard to level up, its pretty much useless unless u spend mil on bones. However, in members world its really easy, using dragon bones on a guilded altar can easily level up your prayer because it multiplies the xp.
