Confirm message text

"Casting low alchemy on a nature rune, if that is the only nature rune in your inventory gives you a message refusing it." What's the exact message, so we can quote it here? I'd check, but can't get on RuneScape at the moment. Yleron - (Talk)(Contribs) 21:00, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Confirmed the message is, you do not have enough nature runes to cast this spell.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

List Useful Items

A very useful addition would be a list of items that make good low alch candidates for the free low alch you get with the Explorer's ring. Casting the free low alch's on bones would be a waste of time, whereas casting on high-value items (rune medium) would be a loss vs. high alch'ing them. So there's got to be a list of fairly common items that will generate a healthy income from 30 low alch's that wouldn't be worth spending nats on. (Eviltexan 19:20, December 8, 2009 (UTC))

A good spot to take a look at might be Template:JunkItems, and sort by low alch value. Summoning-icon To3cutt3r Talk HS Log Summoning-icon 18:45, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Nice suggestion, since I can compare the low to the high alch value and pick the items where this difference is closest to the price of a nat rune. Unfortunately, the list jumps from a diff in the low 100's to 10,000 or so (the last two items). So it seems the list of junk items either is missing a lot of low alch prices, or is insufficient for the exercise. In fact the items don't have to be junk either.

I've linked to the market watch page for what items are profitable to buy, alchemize, then re-sell. Currently it shows zero items are profitable for LLA, but would be good if someone could either check that, or perhaps update the market watch to show the negative profit (e..g what items are lowest cost/xp if you're only looking to skill) --Wine-sign (talk) 19:46, May 20, 2017 (UTC)

Low Alch Experience

Anon posted a piece suggesting that the speed of Low Level Alchemy allowed for higher experience rates per hour than High Level at the expense of higher cost per cast. However, after testing, I was unable to get above 60-62k exp per hour with LLA while getting around 70k per hour consistent of a 10 minute period. I realise that is a short test, but with the unvarying rates of speed, it seems plausible that my data should be consistent over long periods.30percent 03:56, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

The XP claim was wrong but the rest is accurate; lla doesn't interrupt mining etc. Restored most of the paragraph, without the XP stuff. King Hooya 15:30, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
