Question

Witch one is initially cheaper to buy the supplies?

 

EDIT: Im not really caring about how much it'll cost me. Ill eventually get the money one way or another

and again to buy all the supplies all at once

also i dont really care if i get a profit after O.o

i believe that fletching should be cheaper

fm uses money but u get no money

fletching uses money but u get money

 

therefore fletching is cheaper to 99 but fm is faster

I'm F2P, but firemaking is pretty easy. It's just boring and time consuming. I burned willows until Level 90 and then Maples to 99. The Grand Exchange has greatly lowered the price of logs. I think a better option for you would be to do Fletching. I believe you can actually make money training that skill so you could use the money earned to get a second Level 99 skill. Then you will have unlocked the trimmed version of the skill capes. :aware:

Just to buy everything you need to 99, Firemaking would be cheaper, but Fletching may make you a bit of cash along the way.

firemaking is cheaper if you buy all the supplies at once, though you cant make any money out of it.

 

Over all, fletching will be cheaper, though. I mean, it's not like you're going to need to have over 100k yew longs sitting in the bank doing nothing, eh? You'll probably either end up selling them, or alching them.

 

Which leads to this: fletching can also level up magic if you alch the bows, and crafting if you buy flax instead of bowstrings. I'm not saying any thing about woodcutting, cause you can level that up with fire making as well.

 

I'd say the best option would be fletching. Though I'd go with firemaking, cause I always seem to be attracted to flashy colours more than dull and dark ones. :aware: But that's just my opinion, go with whatever one you'd decide would be best.

Yew longs are incredibly hard to sell, you would end up losing a lot of money.

Firemaking is cheaper but takes a longer time

Fletching is a little more expensive and takes less time. You can do it afk.

 

With those two points, you decide

Fletching would be my choice out of fm...

At least u can make money from fletching.

especially when ur able to fletch yew longs, players buy those to increase their mage lvls.

So there is where the money comes in. But fm...no money at all...u burning money as it is... :aware:

Firemaking kills your wrists/eyes. Click, click... while losing money :aware:

Fletching kills your wrists too, while breaking even or losing a small amount of cash.

 

Try using the fast way to 99 fletch if you have money to burn... arrows :aware:

Firemaking is cheaper to just buy all the logs and make fires til 99.

 

Of course, what I think is the best idea is to buy a bunch of yew logs, fletch them into longs, and alch them. It will take A VERY LONG TIME, but, you'll get some cash out of it, and a ton of magic xp!

 

However, alching for that long could drive someone to suicide.

bowstrings alone are 160 gp ea, granted you can make unstrung bows and sell those.

 

but last time i check maple logs are pretty cheap and they give good fm xp.

 

so if ur looking for cheap solution go fm, if you want the useful solution go fletching.

 

 

Edit: your lucky if you sell 100 yew longs per day, there are just too many of those for sale in GE.

I have 99 fletching and it took about 2 months to get. 1-3 hours a day 60 days. Took a while. Hard to sell yew longs when there were so many people selling. Now it's really really hard to get 99 fletching. Go with fm if you have money. These aren't the best skills to chose.

Guys, his question is which is initially cheaper. He's not asking you to tell him which you like better.
