Welcome to my merchanting log!

I started playing RS in 2003 and have probably been merchanting since around 2005.
Nowadays I don't enjoy the game anymore so I just merchant on both RS3 and OSRS, for which I use multiple accounts.

I don't have any specific goals on Oldschool, I just enjoy merchanting a lot.
I do have 1100+ total from playing during the first 3 months after Oldschool release. You can view some videos on that here.

You can follow my progress in the Oldschool RuneScape Merchanting video series!

I hope you enjoy the log, feel free to leave a comment below!

For the record: I haven't and won't be swapping gold between RS3 and OSRS, it feels a bit like cheating to me so I don't enjoy it. The 250+ hard clue hunting in my first months gave me about 42M starting cash, so I'll be working with that.

Inactive flip - 6/27/15 - 11:27PMInstant bought them and no more would buy, so I tried to sell them which went pretty fast for the first 3, the 4th was sold for break even.

Inactive flip - 6/27/15 - 11:17PMI seem to do a bit better on these than the legs, but I had hoped for some more. I'll need a lot more cash to do really well with these.

Inactive flip - 6/27/15 - 11:09PMPretty frustrating item to say the least. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get much over 1M profit each and I downright refuse to flip them for less than that. Even then it takes ages to flip just one, probably because too many people are flipping multiple at a time for wimpy margins. I expected a lot more from these.

Active flip - 6/4/15 - 8:07PMThese were all done within 30 minutes time across 2 accounts at the start of May. Their margin opened up so I decided to take advantage of it while it lasted, which wasn't exactly long..

Inactive flip - 5/23/15 - 12:58PMThese were done during 2 weeks of april. I figured I should upload something since I've been inactive on Oldschool. Really not the greatest item, these were mostly inactive flips and even then it is a struggle to get 500k profit. The 1.4M one was about the best I could get then, after numerous attempts to get at least 2M.Inactive flip - 5/23/15 - 12:58PMThese were done during 2 weeks of april.

Active flip - 5/3/15 - 7:35PMSome derp kept messing with them by narrowing down the margin, so I instant bought his and went for a long shot, seems like he panicked and probably bought them back from me.

Inactive flip - 5/3/15 - 7:32PMSeparated some of the better ones. Half of these were active and half inactive, so I'll just call it inactive.

Active flip - 5/3/15 - 7:28PMThese are some of the regular Spectral flips I did between 15 and 29 April. Usually their margin was only a shitty 200-300k, so this was quite a stretch sometimes. Almost all of them were active flips.

Nice margins on the dfhs and tons of them flipped!


Thanks, I enjoyed them a lot. Always tried to go for like 400-500k minimum as they are somewhat slow. Now I'm in trouble though, this was one of the last items standing for me flipping wise, as with third-age like the plate and legs I'm entirely at the mercy of wealthier merchants which makes it hard for me to do much with it.

I'll have to move over to investing more, but that'll never be enough to catch up with people in the billions.

Nice bulk flips on the unf pots and spectral spirit shield margins.


Thanks, I wish I had spent some more time on the shields at the right times. Spectral generally has a very limited margin, so it was nice to see some shake ups.

Nice, you can afford to flip 3a wands now. A lot more people can afford to flip expensive items.


Those were done at the start of May. I haven't really bothered with them ever since because the margins shrunk down to like 2-3M which is a waste of time.

I can tell indeed that a lot more people can flip certain items. I was slightly above the curve for lower valued items from the start, watching item after item die due to more people flipping them. You're geting the same for higher valued ones. Chances are people will never be able to catch up to the richest merchants because margins won't be that big anymore by the time they can afford the higher items.

Seems like I have to pressure the top 5 a bit more, so I'm uploading some things
I hope you're all holding back majorly..
