I'm an avid Runecrafter and RuneScape gold one of my favourite things to craft are Astral Runes. I can make doubles, which usually yields me a massive revenue, however, recently, Astrals decreased in value. Because of this, I've been forced to shift to Nature Runes which I don't really enjoy crafting as much.
I'm aware that Bonus Experience Weekend played it's part in killing prices for all sorts of things however... that's ridiculous. The current market price for Astral Runes includes 121 Gold pieces per. This is 22gp higher than Pure Essense which is shocking to say the least. Fortunately, I can craft doubles and still be able to earn a small profit. (Astrals are up over the last few days but they droped from 125 to just 121. Thank goodness I had mine sold before the drop.)
So , my current armor is a simple Dragon Medi-helm, Rune platebody Rune platelegs of lightness, combat bracelets, dragon scimi/longsword and buy OSRS GP then just my Lumbridge task rings 2. Power Amulet. I recently reached 70 def and asked one my friends what is best for level 70 def, but they're both mage and ranged, therefore I decided to ask this question here to be sure and to hear other people's thoughts.
