Magic is a combat skill in RuneScape Classic. The runes required for better spells can be relatively expensive to buy, as they can only be acquired through monster drops, pickpocketing, or from other players. Training magic in RuneScape Classic to decent levels, however, can be relatively fast, and cheap.

Acquiring RunesEdit

Some of the best ways to get lots of runes quickly is to train other skills.

Buying from magic stores while multitasking:

Chaos-Rune Chaos-Runes
  • Killing Giants
  • With Level 70 Thieving, you can pickpocket chaos-runes one at a time from Paladins without too much trouble
Death-Rune Death-Runes After completing Gertrude's Cat, players can purchase kittens from Gertrude for just 100gp each. It takes 2hrs to raise a kitten into a cat, which can be sold to the civilian in the rat filled house in West Ardougne (after Plague City) for 25 death-runes. An easy way to raise a cat is to hold it and a ball of wool with you while you fish. Feed it a raw fish every time it meows or purrs, and give it the ball of wool every time it wants attention. Many monsters can sometimes drop death-runes in small amounts.

Combat spellsEdit

It's a good idea to train your magic killing Dark wizards, because they most frequently drop multiple runes. Level 25 Dark wizards can be found in the tower west of Falador, and they drop more runes at a time. Dark wizards are low levelled, so one can wear robes instead of armour to boost their magic stat, and fail less frequently.

Safe spotting Count DraynorEdit

A player's inventory should contain nothing but the following:

Players can repeatly cast Wind strike on high-level opponents while behind a safespot. To save the trouble of finding another monster/ picking up drops/ etc, players can do the following:

  1. Complete Vampire Slayer until you need to fight Count Draynor.
  2. Search the coffin, Count Draynor should appear.
  3. Have Count Draynor on the other side of the coffin.
  4. Finally, repeatly cast Wind strike at the Count.

The above trick works because the Count would regenerate 1/4 of his Hits everytime it reaches 0 if players did not bring a stake. This allows for quick, cheap experience. Assuming this trick was done at level 1 Magic, it would take 592,475 Wind strikes to get to level 99 Magic.

Another method of training magic via combat spells would be to cast Crumble undead. This is most effective underneath the Wizards' Guild where it is possible to get 120k ± 10k magic experience per hour casting the spell on the zombies there and hopping between worlds.

Noncombat spellsEdit

Nature-runes and a fire staff can be used for superheating ores into bars while mining, or for alchemizing unwanted drops or made equipment, such as armour and weapons. It is possible with high level alchemy to get 120k ± 10k magic experience per hour if trained efficiently.

Cosmic and elemental runes can be used to enchant strung amulets into various stat boosting amulets, which can be sold to other players for good amounts of money.
