Old School RuneScape (OSRS) is an intricate game, and Magic is an essential skill for players aspiring to achieve success on the battlefield. To help players get a solid understanding of Magic, the OSRS Magic Guide has become the most popular and sought-after guide.
Created by professional gamers, this guide will provide you with helpful tips and strategies to master your Magic skills. In this article, we will walk you through some essential tips and tricks to level up your Magic skills.
What is the Magic Skill in OSRS?
Magic is a crucial skill in OSRS that can be used for fast transportation around the world, enchanting items, crafting, or even converting coins into utility spells. Without the Magic skill, players will be at a significant disadvantage since many high-level Alchemy recipes require Magic users who know how to use their powers wisely.
Guide Towards Levels
One way to level up your Magic skill is to complete quests that provide a Magic experience. Completing Witch’s Potion and Imp Catcher gives a total of 1,200 Magic experiences, which are enough to get you from level 1 to 10 without any problems at all.
Other short quests can grant an additional 11,000 Magic experience each (such as Fairy Tale 3 – Growing Pains or a sub-quest for Disaster Guide). Completing these quests early in your gameplay within your first ten levels can help you level up your Magic quickly.
Enchanting gem-tipped bolts using the Enchant Crossbow Bolt spell is a great way to train your Magic while doing other activities. The process can be accelerated by holding down the spacebar and rapidly clicking on each cast to increase experience rates significantly.
While this activity is costly, only recommended for players who want to get through early levels fast, it is a useful option. Players with plans on training their Magic passively while doing something else will have a much cheaper alternative at level 21 – Low-Level Alchemy.
Crabs are a suitable enemy to train on with the right spells, especially with higher-level combat magic for better damage output. When fighting in close quarters, a mix of bolts or blast attacks can knock back your opponent too far. If you stay aggressive (and deal minimal damage), they will not become hostile again for 10 minutes without being attacked first.
Three types of crabs will appear: Freshwater Crab (lowest level), Rockling (medium/high level), and Crystalline Ocean King (extreme level). With 100 hit points, Ammonite Crabs are the best option to train combat skills in older versions.
Splashing Combat Spells
To maximize the experience, you can splash combat spells on weak monsters. The process takes about an hour and doesn’t require any player input. Attacking the monster during this period, while wearing equipment that gives at least a -64 Magic attack bonus is essential.
Equip your staff of choice and turn on the auto-retaliate function so that they can fight back against foes automatically.
Casting Superheat Item on ores with a Magic level of at least 43 yields 53 Magic experience per minute. This spell can be cast once every three ticks.
The cost of casting the spell is usually 20-24 coins each time, but with decent focus, players can potentially gain up to 97,000 Magic points per hour. The amount of Smithing experience gained varies depending on what type of ore you use. For instance, 2,195 Iron Ores will take you from level 1 to 55, while 1,250 Steel Ingots until level 45.
