1-99 by Fist of Guthix[edit source]

My Magic level is 49, and i wanna compete with a friend of mine on who gets the first 99 Magic in Fist of Guthix, in f2p.

I'm too poor to afford all the runes for non-FoG Magic, so i thought i would go FoGing to do my first 99er. I used a combination of Bind and X Blasts to get 45-49, and i saw it was not really slow.

How long would it take for 49-99 Magic with FoGing with the best Blast i can use? Help is appreciated.Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png Alex1496 Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png 17:07, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

It really depends on how long you play. First, get your average XP per hour. To calculate how long you need for level 99 Magic, try:
( The total XP needed for level 99 (13,034,431) - Your current Magic XP ) / XP per hour.
There you go... you'll need only that long before you get 99 Magic --Scykei 00:36, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, let's say you can make 30k exp in a hour. You need about 12.9 million exp, so it will take 430 hours. Let's say you can play 3 hours for every day of a week.
It'll only take 20.5 weeks! So, as long as you play every single day for 3 hours of Magic, you'll be done in 144 days. Good luck! Stats Overall icon highscores.pngPlayerFroobTalk 05:32, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
1. First of all, the xp is halfed in Fist of Guthix. That sucks.
2. Seems that the summer vacation has something about 17 weeks or around that period. If i play like crazy ass, i might be done if i start at the beggining of the vacation, but then, the new skill will interfere with my Maging, so my final decision is to give it up. It stays 49. I don't wanna do magic when the new skill is just standing there. Maybe i'll make the new skill a 59 or something like that. My highest skills are 79 Woodcutting and Firemaking. Thanks anyway.Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png Alex1496 Snowball (2006 Christmas event) 5.png 14:29, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Fail[edit source]

This guide fails. It only has one option, and it's way too biased. Can someone PLEASE fix it?

yep it really does fail like crazy

Equipment[edit source]

Shouldn't we have an f2p magic equipment section here. Something like guide what to wear best while f2p magic training.Rodeo machine 16:57, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

I agree that this guide needs more than one option, I have a P2P account with 100 Combat and a F2P one which is a Magic pure. I'll try to come up with some alternate ways from the level which it is at the moment. SplâshTâlkSîgn hêrê 15:44, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Just added a link to the best f2p equipment section on the magic page.Rodeo machine 16:57, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Wind Rush[edit source]

Couldn't you get free unlimited magic experience with an air staff, casting wind rush on the dummies in Lumbridge?

Enchanting[edit source]

Why is there no mention of enchanting in this guide? Turning ruby and diamond amulets into amulets of strength and power is not only pretty fast from my experiences, but it's also profitable. You can easily buy all the amulets at the minimum GE price, thus increasing your profit even more. It sucks how you can't tell if you've enchanted an amulet or not, so you'll get a few stumbles at first, but after some practice, you can really rack up the exp (and money).

How good is 100k exp/hr? That's about how much I get using lv 3 Enchant.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Aburnett, please stop reinstating this talk section. I've already added the enchanting part to the article. If anyone wants to talk about enchanting, they can create a different discussion on it. (i'm the who wrote the discussion in the first place, by the way).

Please read RuneScape:Don't delete discussions, the policy we have on not deleting discussions. So please leave that there and do not delete it. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 04:46, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
You don't understand: I wrote the discussion in the first place (including the response, accidentally), then I decided, "what the heck, I'll just add the section in myself". Sometimes you have to look past the rules and use your common sense. The discussion is unnecessary right now, which is why I'm deleting it. I won't get into an edit war though; if you want to keep it, then so be it.
We keep old discussions for archival purposes, and unless you can provide a valid reason as to why an exception should be made here, it stays. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 18:43, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I'll stop caring about the state of these talk pages and whether it actually has useful discussions or not because apparently that's not a good reason to fix it. If you don't get why it's so useless, by the way, read my previous replies.

Zombies in the Sewer[edit source]

Training Option: Go into the Varrock sewer via the entrance east of the palace kitchen. Follow the middle/north path. Attack the Zombies from across the river. There are a few of them so you can still train this way even if someone else is already there, preventing you from having to search the worlds. -Gar Polky

Updating?[edit source]

This page seriously requires updating. For example, the wind rush sectong should be replaced with a section telleing about various air spells. Caagr98 19:00, November 21, 2012 (UTC)

Updating?[edit source]

The recommended ability bar has multiple member's only abilities. It should be changed to reflect f2p only abilities. 2604:2D80:D607:4100:E509:BF12:146C:615B 14:37, 7 March 2020 (UTC)karsonkonnor

Something is off about the training methods[edit source]

It appears that someone removed the training method on levels 50-51 about casting Air Blast on Hill Giants, looks like they don't want people to know how to effectively increase their magic level during that wide gap. Konutube (talk) 22:38, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
