Old School RuneScape: Levelling Guide for F2P Players

Old School RuneScape has been a very popular set of servers for the developers and while it was originally for Members only, the developers soon enough allowed these servers available to anyone and everyone. Unfortunately, it can be a little tough to level when you're a F2P player, so the entire point of this guide is to help those who wish to upgrade their character as they see fit, without being construed to have to pay a dime.

When you start off, you're not going to have much to offer, so it's best you quickly run over to some farmland areas and start wailing on some chickens and cows. They won't drop the most incredible pieces of loot, but they're going to give you more than enough to at least make a start with. As a result of this you're going to gain some nice attack, defence, and even some osrs gold in the long run. Nearby you will encounter some decent fishing locations that is a decent area to both gain some levels in fishing, as well as cooking – providing you're feeling up to it.

From there it's best to make a move towards the first major city in the game and head straight into the sewers, as that's where you're going to find the next set of creatures that you're going to want to go up against. These rats don't put up much of a fight, so you should be making your way out of the sewer before too long. However, before moving anywhere, it's probably for the best that you head to the bank, free up some space in your bag, upgrade some equipment, and also sell any drops that you don't wish to keep.

Now, you're going to want to head to the Barbarian Village, as it's a location that will quickly provide you with some nice experience to improve your attack stat and it even involves a few nearby locations that you can use to upgrade some more of your miscellaneous skills.

Afterwards, you should head straight towards the Stronghold of Security where you're bound to find a bunch more locations that you can use to level up a myriad of different skills. The combatants here don't require too much work on your part; alas it's still for the best that you have some food on hand, just in the case that things don't go quite as they originally were planned.

Keep all that up and you're going to hit the level 40 mark with no trouble and all of your underlying skills are going to go along with that, which is rather nice as you play along. Anyway, head up towards the Hills to try yourself against some Hill Giants; in size they might be quite intimidating, but trust me – by the time you've knocked down more than a couple, your attack and defence is going to be more than high enough to deal with them with ease.

Lastly, you're going to want to head to the first floor of the Stronghold of Security and simply take out the level 50 giant spiders there for a little while and move onto the 3rd floor for level 99 spiders instead when you feel that you're ready.

Grinding out giant spiders is going to be relatively slow and it will require you to have some nice patience going into this, but you'll be pleased to know that the items they drop have some nice value and to top things off, they even drop food that you can use to keep your character alive for the impending fights.

Trust me, before too long and you're going to be one hell of a force to be reckoned with; one way or the other! All it takes is a little bit of patience and perseverance until you finally hit that max level that you've always wanted.
