Crafting is probably the most diverse skill in Runescape.Using crafting you may make pottery leather items such as coifs and boots, jewelry (which may be enchanted using the magic skill), glass items, and even battle staffs for magic. At time of writing, there are a total of 81 finished items which can be made using the crafting skill.

Crafting is a stat that can come with reward particularly at the higher levels where it can be one of the better money making skills in the game.

The runescape community as a whole is rather divided when it comes to the best way of leveling crafting. Many highly suggest killing cows and using their hides for leather-crafting, whereas some of the more unique players prefer the more processed way of mining clay and making pottery. Both have their pros and cons, leather working uses money but is substationally quicker while clay working is rather hands-on and free but a longer process which, many players dislike attributing to "boredom".

Silver crafting is typically considered one of the best ways to level up Crafting from the mid-levels onward with a steady experience flow and being one of the easier ores to mine in comparison to gold. Leather-crafting however still remains a good way to level up crafting even when silver becomes accessiable especially with money, whereas clay-working is usually pointless at this stage.

Those of good combat level however tend to either kill dragons for their hides or actually buy dragonhides in attempt to continue their experience flow. Glass working on Entrana is another viable option for experience and levels although many consider it rather tedious. Jewellery making is another option although this requires a decent mining level and in most cases access to vast quantities of gold ore typically found in the crafting guild.

It is worth mentioning that low level members will find that a good amount of cash can be made from spinning flax into bowstrings at seer's village. They only require level 10 crafting to make but since they take a long time to accumulate in high numbers most high level fletchers prefer to buy them and they do so for 100-150 gp per bowstring. It is an amazing source of income and 15 experience points are also gained for every string, making it a good source of crafting experience for low- to mid-level crafters.
